If you don't think governments try to consolidate power for the elite, okay... you might not have a tin foil hat, but an oversized wool one being pulled over your eyes. Government isn't inherently *evil* and against the average person, but it's pretty much an intrinsic facet of human government to lean towards keeping the powerful, well... powerful. See all of human history as your case study.

Well, then that's understandable.

Do you still think politicians have that thing humans call feelings? To me it is clear that Obama had to bent the PM arm into unnatural angles to get him to apologize to turkey and he will need to get creative with the arm bending strategy to get a real, long lasting peace in that part of the world that has only known violence for centuries.

Well, I have my cynical days where I think they're all sociopaths, but it's hard from my vantage point to tell. I'm sure there was some arm-bending involved nonetheless.

Well, at least Obama is certainly working to earn his Nobel Peace Prize retroactively.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

The woman who manage to piss off the entire internet.

TLR

Two guys were making jokes at a conference about a "big dongle" (security card) but also as a penis innuendo. PR lady took offense.

PR lady snap picture of two guys, post it on a 10,000 people twitter account. Called herself Joan of Arc for taking on sexism.

One guy, with 3 kids, got fired.

Next thing you know, entire internet, including 4Chan and Anon start hacking the PR lady's firm until they were forced to fire her.

Well done Internet. Hope she can't find a job for the rest of this year as a small lesson on non-issues.

Cmon it is a design issue. I once met a 19 year old girl who worked with me who once commented that a dongle is probably designed by a woman who is so bitchy that her husband didn't want her.

And it turned out to be true at the end of our contract....it was the old department in-charge, a grumpy, single 40+ year old lady.

It is even more interesting, if you dig more into her. She made similar jokes on her twitter as well, about recommending a guy wear a "BIG SOCK" to a TSA Pat down. She is also anti-white, claiming Blacks can't be racist to white and Men who complain are "manplaining"

And other female dev also made comment the woman is someone who like to "bomb toss" (including one example of accusing someone for using the term "money shot")

http://amandablumwords.wordpress.com/

So this lady, who claim herself to be Joan of Arc trying to save future young techie girl away from evil "male culture" finally set off a bomb she couldn't control...

Edit: Yes, she literally called her self Joan of Arc, saying she saw some pitiful young tech girl who would be crushed by male sexism in a tech world.

Ah yes...The Internet. Fighting the small fights that may or may not be of any real importance. Possibly because they find it funny.

Not only was the joke not directed at her, she didn't even understand the joke they were making was also referencing a legitimate programming method (along with the inuendo). Really, she should have just told em to shut up and left it at that but, ahh well, this is kharma i guess.

That's considering them government agents, which I used the word "soldier" for.
Certainly not the word you used, which is "criminals".

If anything that quote supports what I'm saying, not yours.
It is worded so vaguely one could argue that "refresh monkeys" are legitimate targets. Obviously this idea needs to be worded better at the least.

I don't feel sorry for her but i do feel sorry for the two guys who got fired.

She felt all high and mighty thinking she caught some sexists without confronting the men and explaining what they actually meant with "Dongle". She thought by tweeting it, she was a Hero but instead it just expose her for what a hypocrite and a Smug she is.

In the end, i hope the two guys who were fired are rehired or get new jobs.
As for her......... she better act more appropriate next time if she gets a new job.
