For the past 8 years, and likely 9 to 10 years, liberals have been waterboarding America. Waterboarding by way of calling names, shaming and even physically attacking people that didn’t think and speak like them.
As you may have heard torture is an unsuccessful way to obtain useful information. I’ll extent that to it’s an unsuccessful way to win people over to your way of thinking.
So many people do not like confrontation. They’d much rather not speak or if they must speak say as little as possible so they won’t be attacked.
Also some people will be upset enough to remember how they felt, and go against you at their first opportunity.
Voting for NON-liberals is one way to pay liberals back for their bullying. Yes bullying!
I would recommend to the people of “inclusion” that you let people speak their minds and have a logically, respectful conversation as to why what you believe in is the right direction to go.
Donald Trump’s win is the fault of poorly behaving, disrespectful, hating liberals everywhere. It’s even Hillary’s fault, with labeling people “deplorables”.
It’s never too late to grow up. Apologize and try keeping that pie hold closed. Try listening. It doesn’t matter how RIGHT you are as everyone’s vote counts the same. When people are in the voting booth they can be who they are and not who you have bullied them to be.
I have heard on three occasions now “I used to be a Windows person, but now I’m a Mac!” ”Apples are just so much easier to use.” ”I’m not a technical person and the Apple is just so much simpler.”
It took me about two days, maybe three, to get comfortable using the MAC. Not because it’s simple, but because it is like Windows, or maybe Windows copied them, I don’t care.
I started using Windows with version 3.1, well technically version 2 but I’d say the first true incarnation that is very similar to todays version was 3.1. It wasn’t until 2016 that I started using and Apple MAC.
I’m telling you there is no difference between IOS and Windows. If you can use one you can use the other. So if you want to spend a God awful amount of money for a MAC IOS system over a Windows running on companies that COMPETE to bring you the lowest possible price on hardware, go ahead. I’m just telling you that you don’t have to.
If you need to sit in that college audience and have an Apple logo on your laptop buy a sticker and put it on there and save several HUNDRED dollars, or save it for your parents.
I see nothing better with the Apple hardware or software. Oh the virus argument? The Apple MAC is no less susceptible to attack than a Windows computer. You’ll see.
I use Windows, Linux and Android for my phone. I firmly believe Linux is the future but I don’t need to have Apple put their GUI on it and present it to me as MAC IOS.
Find you a good hardware manufacture and run Windows until Linux is ready for prime time.
Samsung has great smartphone and they still have a analog audio jack!
Now 90 days have passed. I have found virtually no difference between MAC and Windows. My MAC has locked up and I had to power cycle my MAC book pro, just once, but then again I’ve only done this less than a handful of time for Windows. Save a thousand dollars and get something that isn’t a MAC.
In my opinion MAC is nothing more than a GUI like GNOME or KDE. It’s a good GUI but I suspect that it won’t be much longer before we can all switch to LINUX and not have to pay excessive amounts of money for hardware or an operating system.
With the recent direction that Microsoft has gone with Windows 10 I can see myself getting away from Windows.
Bottom line, there is no reason for me to own an Apple product.
What am I missing? I don’t see the appeal to a product that limits you to just their products, and way of thinking. Just seems like a different more expensive Microsoft way of thinking to me.
No this isn’t a out of work, or college days story where peanut butter, cup of noodles, or mega doses of cheap MAC and cheese. It about the beloved, by many, Apple computer.
I have been working with computers for a very long time. The first time I laid hands on an Apple MACintosh was about 1982. Now some 34 years later I am doing my day to day systems administrator duties on a MAC.
I wasn’t happy about this. I don’t use Apple products. Oh I’m glad they are there! Apple is innovative and helps drive the more conservative companys forward. Mouse (well they go that from XEROX), 3.5″ floppy drives. USB, the list goes on.
We all have a tendency to like what we know best, or first. In this case that was MS DOS, MS Windows, LINUX, UNIX, VMS, etc… What’s one more operating system to learn, right?
Well after using a MAC for seven days I can say, it’s just like MS Windows. There are just two things that I don’t like about it. The close, minimize and window/full screen buttons are on the wrong side, and you can’t move them. And instead of having the menu bar on the window (Where God intended it to be) it’s at the top of the screen. Where there are three things, the price is way to high for a Windows PC! I didn’t have to buy this, or any of them for the company so that really isn’t my problem, but a bit of a concern since I like to save the company money not waste it.
Would I consider buying an Apple MAC computer? No.
Would I recommend an Apple MAC to anyone else? No.
Is there any Apple product that I would recommend? No.
Apple makes a fine product. It’s is very consistent, and professional looking. I hear their customer service is top notch, which is another plus. Is the MAC any easier to use than MS Windows? No.
From what I’ve heard so far every piece is significantly more than the non Apple counterparts. It’s not easier to use, it works just like Windows and you can buy the hardware from companies competing for your business which drives down the price. The only reason I can think that ANYONE buys an Apple product is due to a cult like following that Apple has managed to create.
Deep down this is probably why I have been so anti-Apple for many many years.
Agree? Disagree? Let me know your thoughts. After all I could be wrong! I’ve only been using a MAC for seven days, and it only took about three to get comfortable using it.
No this isn’t another Bob Beckel hit piece, and it’s not about the members of “The Five” talking over one another, it’s about a story they discussed on Friday (March 13, 2015). ”Hostile sexism”, professor Judith Hall, of Northeastern University in Boston said, “Benevolent sexism is like a wolf in sheep’s clothing that perpetuates support for gender inequality among women.”
Really? Well I’m glad people think about things, and are smart enough to be able to express those thoughts to us, because you never know when it might just be revolutionary and good, however in this case I cannot disagree more.
Recently I was at Sam’s Club. After making my selections, filling my shopping basket, I found my way to one of the least crowded lanes, in fact I think I caught it just as the last person was leaving it. The young lady that was working as a cashier came around to my basket and started removing items and placing them on the conveyer belt. After only one item I told her, “That’s okay, I’ve got it.” She responded it wasn’t a problem she was happy to help. A little more forcefully I said “No please stop, I’ll get it.”
Reluctantly she stopped, had a confused look on her face as she was walking back to the spot in front of the cash register. I continued to unload the basket. After a brief pause she asked, “Why didn’t you want me to help?” I stopped unloading the basket, looked her in the eyes and said. There’s a reason I am bigger and stronger than you. I appreciate your offer of help but I should be the one unloading the basket.
She was visibly surprised, and said “That’s so sweet.” This really made an impression on me. I couldn’t think about how sad it was that this young lady had not be treated this way in the past. What must our young men be doing when they interact with women these days?
I am smart enough to understand that you can “do” things for people that they don’t want you to do. I leave it up to the individual woman. If I offend someone by opening the door, they can tell me and I’ll push them down, close the door behind me.
I will continue to open the door for my wife, my daughters and the occasional strangers when the need arise.
