Rework of Patrick.net Format

By Patrick   7 comments, latest 5 minutes ago

At the suggestion of a user, I'm trying to make patrick.net more like a news site and less just a forum. So I'm hoping each post will be something like a news story, and have at least one picture, which I will also include on the home page. I don't have the picture thing worked out yet, coming today, I hope. Default sorting of home page is now by likes, but you can just click "active" on the home page to sort by latest activity (post or comment) like before. What else should change? Thanks!

Melissa Click: Mizzou fired me because I am white!!

By lostand confused   14 comments, latest 13 minutes ago

http://thefederalist.com/2016/ Remember Melissa Click, the University of Missouri professor who lost her job after assaulting a student on camera and asking for some “muscle” to help get rid of him? According to Click, her dismissal from Mizzou wasn’t because she attacked a student in a pathetic bid to shut down free speech. Nope. Click says she was fired for being white.

His goal was to display his country's flag "as loud as I can."

By Blurtman   21 comments, latest 2 hours ago

"I came out here to support my people and my father," Adrian Olivares, a 23-year-old college student who was draped in a Mexican flag, told CNN. He said his goal in protesting Trump's appearance was to display his country's flag "as loud as I can." http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/29/ ----- The fellow was born in the USA in the 1990's, and yet says his country is Mexico. WTF?

Slash (the / character) is now allowed in patrick.net post titles like this one

By Patrick   3 comments, latest 2 hours ago

The fix was to alter the nginx.conf from this: rewrite ^/([^/]+)$ /index.php?title=$1 last; # specific post to this: rewrite ^/(.+)$ /index.php?title=$1 last; # specific post Let me know if this introduced any new bugs. The idea is that if a specific file exists on the server, it will be used: if (-f $request_filename) { # if file exists (like /js/bootstrap.min.js) then use it, don't rewrite break; } If the file does not exist, we redirect to /index.php and give it the characters after the slash to look up as a post title. To be honest, I'm still mystified as to why there was a bug in the first place. The slash in any post title is url-encoded to %2f (mouse...

Schools holding separate graduation ceremonies for LGBT students

By P N Dr Lo R   1 comment, latest 3 hours ago

http://www.washingtontimes.com The LGBT community has been fighting a decades-long culture war to be included in the fabrics of American society — and it’s winning. Yet when it comes to their graduation ceremonies, it seems they’d prefer exclusivity.

CUT THE FEDERAL BUDGET? START BY KILLING CORPORATE WELFARE

By jazz music   2 comments, latest 3 hours ago

Obama has not changed anything regarding corporate welfare. For all the billions all we get is more sent offshore and a jobless recovery. Cutting corporate welfare is the heresy they invest a billion a year in conservative talk radio, blogs and infotainment like Fox news to keep us from talking about. Stand on your hind legs! Stop grudging the little help the poor gets and CUT THE $153 BBN corporate welfare!!! The federal budget is filled with outrageous, inappropriate, useless, counterproductive, and simply wasteful spending. Washington has become an endless soup kitchen for special interests, with a grant or loan seemingly available for every interest group with a letterhead and at least three members. Yet Congress resists making even...

Trump Supporter Stripped of 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights

By HydroCabron   posted 4 hours ago

WASHINGTON — A fanatical Donald Trump supporter, who was arrested by the FBI in Oregon this week after repeatedly threatening to kill President Barack Obama and federal agents, had multiple pipe bombs in his home, authorities alleged in court on Friday. “Obama you goat fffing fudgepacker, the refugees are men of fighting age. Black lives matter! Sure we need someone to pick cotton and wash cars. Paris, burn diseased muslim neighborhoods to the ground and start over with human beings. Obama you are on a hit list,” he wrote in a post that appears to have been removed. Beyond what was mentioned in the affidavit, Roos regularly posted on both Facebook and Twitter about his support for Trump and his...

Will Trump beat Hillary (if she is the nominee?)

By Blurtman   73 comments, latest 5 hours ago

Trump will blast Hillary's backing of job destroying trade deals, which will appeal to a good deal of the Rust Belt electorate. Hillary has a loyal following of women with a grudge man blaming career women, and uninformed African Americans. She also carries the close minded reflexively liberal and PC crowd. But can Trump bring on board enough of the anti-Hillary Democrat leaning independents and progressive Democrats, or Democrats of any stripe that just will not vote for a neocon warmonger with bizarre large bottom hiding clothes. Grab the popcorn.

Time Stamp your 2016 Recession Call Now

By Logan Mohtashami   #Economics  #Investing  #Housing   1,013 comment, latest 8 hours ago

As predictable as the Sun rising, the Drama last Friday sent the Recession Bears into over drive once again. Well, time to man up, time stamp your 2016 Recession Call now. I say no, can't have a Job Loss Recession or 2nd Great Recession as some have been calling while - Fed rate hike cycle barely started ( No Inflation) to fight - LEI is still tracking positive - Unemployment claims are low ( Not over 300K) and you need to see 323K with breath, not just mining and oil companies. Once you get falling LEI, Claims rising and Fed Rate Hike Cycle going, then you have something, but it's not there yet #Economics #Investing #Housing 2016 Economic Time...

Is it just me who's crazy?

By Houseless but not homeless   12 comments, latest 8 hours ago

Hi Guys!! It's been a while since I've come around although I pop in from time to time. I've noticed the format has changed and there are no longer articles related to housing as before. Why is that? Patrick, did you give up? Or did you move on to bigger and better things? Anyway, the reason that I decided to post this thread is the insanity I have come upon in my recent research involving housing in the Bay area. Take a look at this link that I stumbled upon. http://sfist.com/tags/apartmen Now at first I thought it was some type of joke, a satire site if you will, yet as I probed deeper I sadly realized it was not.

Baby Boomers Are What's Wrong With The Economy

By Indiana Jones   #economics   105 comments, latest 9 hours ago

https://www.washingtonpost.com From the article: My generation, Gen X, is in far worse financial shape than our parents were at the same age. Millennials are even worse off than we are. Soon after the Great Recession ended, the Pew Research Center reported that middle-class families were 5 percent less wealthy than their parents had been at their age, even though today’s families work a lot harder — the average family’s total working hours has risen by a quarter over the past 30 years — outside the home, and even though they’re much likelier to include two wage earners. The ensuing recovery has made things worse. Middle-class families owned fewer stocks, businesses and homes in 2013 than they did in 2010, according...

Why Bernie Sanders FREE college plan doesn't make sense

By Ironman   #politics  #FeelTheBerningSensation   6 comments, latest 10 hours ago

Two professors at the College of William and Mary in Virginia analyzed his proposal and concluded it’s economically and politically unrealistic. Robert Archibald and David Feldman teach in the economics department. They are the authors of “Why Does College Cost So Much?” and here offer their opinion on his proposal. Tuition-free public education is music to the ears of families who see state university sticker prices continually rising more rapidly than their income. Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) has tapped that sentiment with his proposal to use federal funds to make public college education free for in-state students. His Senate bill 1373 makes for great sound bites on the campaign trail, but there are good reasons why none of...
