The tech nuisance demographic that supports bitcoin is a subset of the right wing libertarian tribe. They view it as a way to do their part in destroying tyrannical government.

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle at 11:49 am by George Smith

If you’re a 3-D printing nerd, what’s not to like here? In the Culture of Lickspittle, the odious rise to the top. In this manner, 3-D print manufacturing, at least for the short term, is saddled with the image that it’s a bunch of libertarian white nerds and insurrectionists obsessed with making plastic weapons. To […]


Bean Pounding (a new one)

Infamous plastic 3D gun-printing schnook Cody Wilson had more good things happen to him this week when a division of the US government ordered him to take down his digital gun plan for violating the ITAR.

The now infamous Cody Wilson successfully fired a 3D printed plastic pistol one time by hand, without maiming himself. The tech press went wild.

Cowering before the gun lobby

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Extremism, WhiteManistan at 12:39 pm by George Smith

Posh Christmas catalog in the US or what Adam Lanza used? Is that all that can be done? The early returns aren’t optimistic. From a Michigan newspaper, the usual intelligence-insulting extremist script on self-defense as justifications for a right-to-concealed carry law rammed through the Republican held legislature hours before Newtown: Backers say the tragedy is […]
