    That's not really the problem though.
    In Windows 10, the Touch Keyboard appears automatically in desktop apps when text fields are selected.

    Most stupid counter points ever.
    1. He doesn't plan on eating a lion
    2. Cows aren't at risk of becoming extinct.

    Now, I have another problem: the Touch Keyboard won't close until I manually closed it.

    Firefox doesn't support Touch keyboard
    In other browsers (Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome), when I tap on a text field, I get the Touch Keyboard. In Firefox, I don't get anything.
    How am I suppose to input text?

    Killer of Cecil the lion should be extradited, Zimbabwe says
    The American dentist who killed Cecil the lion a month ago in Zimbabwe paid for an illegal hunt and should be extradited to the southern African nation to face justice, environment minister Oppah Muchinguri said on Friday.
    In a news conference, Muchinguri referred to 55-year-old Walter Palmer as a "foreign poacher" and said she understood the Prosecutor General had started the process to have him extradited from the United States.
    "We are appealing to the responsible authorities for his extradition to Zimbabwe so that he can be held accountable for his illegal action," she said.
    Palmer has admitted killing the 13-year-old predator, a favorite with foreign tourists and the subject of an Oxford University study, but said he had hired professional guides and believed all the necessary hunting permits were in order.
    Muchinguri also said Palmer's use of a bow and arrow to kill the lion, who is said to have been lured out of Hwange National Park with bait before being shot, was in contravention of Zimbabwean hunting regulations.
    Palmer, a life-long big game hunter, managed to return to the United States before the authorities were aware of the controversy around Cecil's death.
    "It was too late to apprehend the foreign poacher because he had already absconded to his country of origin," Muchinguri said.
    The killing has sparked social media outrage against Palmer in the United States. The White House said on Thursday it would review a public petition of more than 100,000 signatures to have him extradited.

    I find it hypocritical that social conservatives only care about unborn "babies". As soon as they are born, social conservatives don't care about they any more.
    Let's cut food stamp.
    If a lot of children go hungry: no big deal since they were already born.
    And what above love? What about having a stable home?
    And no, having a 15-years old mom is not stable!!!
    Children are not dogs. It's not sufficient to just feed them (which conservatives don't even want to do) and take them for walks a few times a week.

    Why do you care about what happens afterward?
    They can turn the fetus into hamburger patties for all I care. (not that I would actually eat them)

    My parents taught me nothing about sex.
    Let's face it, for a lot of social conservative parents:
    abstinence = good
    sex = bad (even if it's safe sex)

    Except, how would the father know when he's a 15 years old kid AND the school officials aren't enthusiastic about teaching kids about safe sex?

    It's also why the modern Republican Party is not the Party of Lincoln, but the Party of Nixon.

    I don't know why a lot of social conservatives are against contraceptives.
    While my old high school does provide free contraceptives, the reaction is more of a "ya, it's there." than "you should get some!"  I have a feeling that they don't really want to be handing out contraceptives.
    And if you were wondering, my aunt is pretty grouchy right now and her fiancé is well... you know. Thank goodness that's a no return policy.

    I wonder how long until would be until someone post something that uses this logic:
    Plan Parenthood kills fetuses
    fetus = baby
    killing baby = murder
    murder = bad
    ------
    And hence Planned Parenthood must be defunded.

    I always use OneNote 2013 instead of OneNote from the Windows Store because I found the latter lacking in features.

    How Planned Parenthood could shut down the government
    Calling next week’s Senate roll call to defund Planned Parenthood a “legislative show vote,” GOP firebrand Ted Cruz said Republicans should do everything they can to eliminate federal money for the group — even if it means a government shutdown fight this fall.
    He’s not alone. On Wednesday afternoon, 18 House Republicans told leadership that they “cannot and will not support any funding resolution … that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood.” Meanwhile, GOP social conservatives like Sens. James Lankford of Oklahoma and Jeff Sessions of Alabama said they’d consider supporting an effort to attach a spending rider that would eliminate Planned Parenthood’s $528 million in annual government funding to must-pass spending legislation this fall.
    It’s a potentially ominous sign for GOP leaders desperate to avoid another shutdown debacle. While Cruz may be radioactive in the Senate GOP conference after calling his leader a liar, his analysis of next week’s vote has merit: With Democrats vowing to block the measure, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) won’t be able to get the 60 votes he needs to advance the bill next week, a result that likely won’t satisfy a conservative base itching for confrontation over abortion.
    In a Wednesday interview, Cruz said the GOP should go as hard as it can to block funding for Planned Parenthood, including the same strategy he tried to use to defund Obamacare in 2013: force the issue by blocking funding in a government spending bill that must pass by Sept. 30.
    Asked whether he would support such a maneuver again, Cruz replied: “I would support any and all legislative efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. We do not need a legislative show-vote.”
    On the other side of the Capitol, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) said dozens of House Republicans will back his effort to oppose any spending bill — whether a continuing resolution stopgap or longer-term funding package — that includes any money for Planned Parenthood.
    “This is one of those line-in-the-sand type of issues,” Mulvaney said Wednesday. “Every time we say we don’t want to spend money on something, the answer is it will provoke a shutdown.”
    This weekend, Senate conservatives had pushed to attach defunding provisions to the must-pass transportation bill, but now they are shifting their sights to this fall’s government spending bill. Lankford, both a social conservative and an ally of leadership, said he’d support defunding Planned Parenthood “wherever he can get it,” and Sessions said Republicans “don’t need to take no for an answer” after Democrats reject the GOP defunding bill next week.
    “Congress doesn’t have to fund any program it doesn’t think is justified. How does it get to be that a minority of the Democrats can dictate that a majority party has to fund programs it doesn’t believe in?” Sessions added. “We don’t need to go at it halfheartedly.”
    Democrats say the GOP efforts will be futile. Republicans lost a 2011 fight to defund Planned Parenthood and a 2013 push to defund Obamacare plunged the government into a shutdown. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said a repeat of that show would be “gridlock” — but other party insiders warned the results could be even more consequential.
    “The immovable object is about to meet the unstoppable force: Republicans cannot pass a bill that funds Planned Parenthood and congressional Democrats and President [Barack] Obama cannot vote for or sign a bill that defunds it,” said a senior Senate Democratic aide.
    But many Republicans aren’t willing to go there yet, including the recipient of Cruz’s “show-vote” diss, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who’s working with Lankford, Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa and party leaders to set up next week’s vote to slash Planned Parenthood’s funding.

  15. illegaloperation added a post in a topic The Windows 10 Tablet Experience   

    So now that I have Windows 10 install on my Surface Pro 3, I can give comments on my experience.
    1. When holding the tablet with two hands, I find it particularly difficult to press the buttons on the bottom, so I've moved the taskbar to the top.
    2. I also love the new split Touch Keyboard that can be slide up and down instead of stuck to the bottom.
