Friday, May 18, 2018

President Donald Trump twice asked Bill Gates the difference between HPV and HIV, the Microsoft founder told an audience at a recent Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation meeting. The footage of Gates, aired on MSNBC late Thursday, shows the billionaire philanthropist responding to questions from staff members and describing his first exchanges with the president.

Bill should have convinced him to have an HPV test, it is very likely he is positive. Giving him the news would have been priceless.

I'm sorry but I don't think we should celebrate the stupidity of the President of the United States. We should be embarrassed by it because it reflects the stupidity of the American people especially including Jill Stein voters. Every American that didn't do everything they could to prevent Donald Trump from being President is guilty.

Go easy, guys. You run the risk of triggering President Dennison's PTSD resulting from his own personal Vietnam.

There is no cure for TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome ). The more a patient struggles, the longer the disease will last. Doctors are predicting it will last to till 2024.

It is fun to watch through.

As for Gates, a college dropout who just happened to be in the right place and the right time... we only have he's word for it. People forgot that earlier on Gates tried to sell Microsoft to IBM but they passed because among local computer hpbbyist's he was a known liar when it came to his software..,

Who here remembers early DOS and how messed up that was?

What revolutionary operating systems have YOU created?

#13, you have your Microsoft / IBM story dramatically messed up. That episode in United States business/tech history is well documented and reported. I recommend a quick internet search to update your recall of those events.

As for DOS, there are plenty of old-timer IT folks who wax fondly of using DOS and who complain about how the successive GUI based (Graphical User Interface) operating systems like Windows and MacOS ruined the "pure" computing that command line based operating systems like DOS provided. DOS was only as good as the user operating the system. If your syntax sucked, that would make the OS appear to suck too. But the issue was fully PEBKAC.

Snoofy, if you were addressing me, I personally never had the opportunity to touch CP/M. I started with Apple Basic and DOS. Although I was NOT one of those folks who lamented the loss of command line operating systems. :)

"Does it matter?"

Of course it matters. If he has an illness, he isn't responsible for his actions. Likewise, irresponsibly conflating an actual illness with mere immoral conduct is enormously insensitive to those out there who actually suffer from a mental illness.

It still doesnt matter. Whether he's a chronic liar, cheater, scammer, and instigator by CHOICE or BIOLOGICALLY, he shouldn't be president either way. Get him away from the levers of power where his VOLUNTARY CHOICES/PSYCHIATRIC MALFUNCTION can't hurt innocent people.

OK Gave it 24 hours.

As I expected, all who replied only posted just name calling and some unsubstantiated character assasinations of TRUMP but nothing specific. In fact there is a shocking lack of intellectual honesty to just come out and just plain say "I hate the guy" for no other reason.

Still I am grateful for the all the TRUMP bashing posts. Because for everyone one, 5 or 6 democratic voters will read them and re-think and re-examine their political beliefs. And that's a good thing.

If all the Democratic Party can muster is hate and name calling, they don't stand much of chance on 2020.

As for DOS - that was a trick post. Bill Gates didn't invent it. He bought it from a Dentist who was a part time CP/M programming hobbyist.

Not exactly true. As I understand it the story is a bit more involved.

Microsoft (Gates) bought the 86-DOS created by twenty-two-year-old Tim Paterson who was hired in June 1978 by Seattle Computer Product's (SCP)owner Rod Brock.

"Microsoft, having worked with SCP before and seeking an operating system they could modify for the IBM PC, bought the rights to market the 86-DOS operating system to other manufacturers for $25,000 that same month. On July 27, 1981, just prior to the August 12 PC launch, Microsoft bought the full rights to the operating system for an additional $50,000, giving SCP a perpetual royalty-free license to sell 86-DOS (including updated versions) with its computer hardware.[2] "

Trump doesn't know the difference between HIV and HPV ...

But Trump MOST DEFINITELY knows what ZTE is, because he's working hard at selling out America to China.

Maybe the real problem is elitist billionaires like Bill Gates passing judgment on the rest of us. Let's be fair. HIV and HPV both have the letter H as the first letter and the letter V as the last letter. So similar! Gates needs to get out of his ivory tower and cut the rest of us some slack.

And the filthy, dirt-bag Gates vomits once again as he and his trash mates forge ahead with their population control agenda. Gotta get the world's population whittled down to 500 million. But how will this be accomplished? Oh yeah! Since Gates and all his scummy dirt travelers believe most everyone is dumber than a box of rocks, they'll just have 72 vaccinations required for children. That will surely maim and/or kill many of those little ones...
