country pregnant with “affordable” care act. abortion appropriate to kill this demon spawn: abort obamacare

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sagacious Himself @ 4:12 pm

All those in favor of infanticide after rape should have no qualms with this analogical solution.  Obama an his minions have gang raped the american people abusing federal power to force purchase an unwanted service — akin to regulating how much wheat a farmer can raise for his own animals in the name of interstate commerce using the same fallacious reasoning.



algae as alternative fuel requires additional subsidies because CO2 rarity? What happened to evil CO2 abundance causing global warming? (while ignoring the sun) Same evil diffent time scale

Filed under: global warming: obvioiusly solar,Gross Politix — Sagacious Himself @ 3:10 pm


CO2 is BOTH super abundant AND rare.  Gotta love liberalism allowing mutual logical contradiction as true:

The sun: does global warming without which there’d be no life.  Global warming is good.  If excessive simply move the sun further away;  star relocation is less irrational than taxing people to cool the sun.

S: “Do we have an algae power plant anywhere?”
W: “Yes, and no”
W: “we have light and dark… currently feeding them sugar”

Plants which produce no power [ no pun intended ].

algae is tomorrows evil fossil fuel

VAST sums of energy imput required to tool CO2 to suit algae.  Addition money must be wasted to feed CO2 to algae facilities:

The construction of a liquid CO2 pipeline can easily cost $1 million per mile.

As with sugar algae systems let’s ignore both the front end costs- and continuing costs when analyzing output success.

S: [When will you start]
W: [cost share should be able to bring what private industry would be able to accomplish in a couple of years.  … gives these designs a world wide competitive advantage.]

W: In five years … we should have demonstration scale… 10 million gallons.

S: the high prices of fuel are hurting families
pres: prices will necessarily skyrocket

The bill will allow “DOE to enter into long term contracts which will spur development”.  It both inspires development AND pays for development THEN purchases output?  Wow, what a deal to line pockets!  1h 7min

Recent alternative fuel bill inanities while ignoring demonstrably beneficial fissionable power

recent alternative fuels bills inanity all while ignoring fissionable power


S761 to wield regulation to force competition in lieu of efficient free market.  The market doesn’t know what it wants as it is comprised of people who cannot know what is best for themselves — despite government being comprised of people also.


remember: algae is tomorrow’s evil fossil fuel — same evil different time scale

another malware pushing malware enterprise like opencandy malware: bunndle malware

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 7:54 pm

For those who make sport of such

bunndle is malware victimizing foss through adware

bunndle is malware

Ah right, so basically it started life as malware, and was flagged by the AV ppl and you were forced to change your software to be less intrusive. Forgive me for not wanting to trust a company like that.

“OpenCandy was never flagged as malware” — opencandy shill

First hand knowledge: yes, it was.

encrypt locally before cloud storage it’s most attractive feature Quasar IV seeks funding


Unfortunately the QSalpha folks plan to replace one walled garden with their own QuaWorks walled garden further employing untested special encryption.

QSalpha hasn’t read about the woes of Alice.

QSalpha design is trustyworthy because QSalpha claims it’s trustworthy

QSalpha design is trustworthy becuase QSalpha says their design is trustworthy


Quasar IV special crypto blend:

QSalpha would like you to ignore the man in green

This all assumes our nation reclaims the liberties stolen by the obamanation through feckless indifference


obamanation forced sharing


$0 encrypted SIP calls can be had on android now with OSTN,

non boot leaky XPosed framework for android+ XPrivacy the least horrible stop gap for now for those who have disabled- or removed privacy raping google framework

terobamism FUD has begun on the interweb with obama’s ironic shutdown of government

Filed under: Gross Politix,obama,progressivism — Sagacious Himself @ 9:53 am

Some options redirect to this FUD page:

obama FUD has begun on the interweb


On the upside this CUTS USELESS government function to ESSENTIAL.  By law ZERO non-essential functions receive funding.  So we’re left with only

  • military
  • air traffic control
  • border patrol

That’s a win in the logic ledger.
