I'm sorry, but I don't see it, this time. Random costume is random.
Feb 4, 2013 dafydd commented on Racist, Or Not Racist: Jimmy Cliff and the Super Bowl "Get Happy" Commercial.
The commercial was definitely "making fun of." Making fun of a racial or cultural attribute might or might not be racist, depending on context and intent. In this case, I don't think the commercial dropped all way to racism.

@10 You can't build ~any~ economy without spending money. If the poor and middle class can't and the rich won't, who's left?
Nov 23, 2012 dafydd commented on There's No Correlation Between Wealth and Competence.
@1 and @3 got it right, Goldy. "Incompetent" is not the same as "greedy." Their objective was not to run a company, but to make as much for themselves as they could. They're actually very competent at that...

@1: "Do you know anyone who uses Netscape anymore? No."

Yes. Anyone who uses FireFox, which was the free software spin off from Netscape when that company tried to turn a web browser into a money maker. The Netscape side died out, but its lineage lives on in FireFox.

Nov 10, 2009 dafydd commented on And Another Thing About the Ballot Counting.
Don't hire elections workers, ask established volunteer organizations to pitch in. Volunteer firefighter associations, firefighter or police officer unions, PBS phone-bankers, or many others.

The only mandatory requirement is that no one organization can provide volunteers more often than once every five years.
