I’m watching “Ace In The Hole” on AMC, awesome, best line so far “When the history of this sun-baked Siberia is written, these shameful words will live in infamy — ‘No chopped chicken livers!'”
So I’m too distracted for a real post, but there’s something that’s been on my mind a lot lately: why are tech people usually glibertarians? Some of my best friends are tech people but they bust out the most ridiculous Reason-type nonsense all the time. Why?
When I say tech person, I mean the kind of person who asks you why you didn’t just type “grep -7582 -pql” instead of writing that ten line Python script. You know what I mean.
Update. Bonus: footage of
Obama someone calling some idiot (Peter Schiff is his name) a “laughable libertarian”. EDIT: Somebody from Demos told me “our president called him a laughable libertarian” and sent me the clip, I couldn’t get it to play on my slow internet connection and jumped the gun, thinking it was Obama, not the president of Demos. Damn!
