Even the buses in Chattanooga have free wifi, blew my mind when I went home this last time.
Yet another blow to personal responsibility.
This is not easily done when you look at enterprise issue equipment. Dell pushes intel over anything else, and that's what corps are getting thousands of.
Could you possibly imagine the nightmare that would be removing regulation making capability from agencies and putting that in the hands of Congress? Nothing, ever, would get done and Comcast would own everything.
Until something is found predating L'anse aux Meadows, the Europeans to find the Americas were the Norse.
In general, just about every conference I've been to has been a waste of money. The only real benefits I have gleaned from them have been free software for development use and/or making contacts. In general, the information that I would receive from the confs. is more readily accessible online or through books. An example would be a yearly conference that I used to attend for a particular software that I develop. On average, the conference + hotel + travel would run me about $6000. It was a massive waste as, all we really spent time doing was drinking and chumming around. In 3 years, I might have had 1 or 2 actual lectures or Q&A sessions that had any real benefit.
Please tell that to the steel industry.
don't fuck with my coffee.

Had we not learned from history, would we have the nation that we have today? Had we not learned from history, would we not have the sciences, art, and great works of this day? All of our greatest accomplishments in time have been based on an event, person or persons in history. History, whether you like it or not, makes us the people we are today. Should we forget about the wars our nations fought? Should we forget about the civil advancements of our past generations?
I believe it is referred to as the revolving door of government.
I would prefer the method used by, I think Denmark, where you can donate all the money you want, it all goes into a superfund and dispersed evenly amongst the contenders.
You're only partially correct. Corporations can donate directly to a campaign, but they are limited in how much they can donate. They can donate any amount they wish to a PAC or multiple PACS. Now, PACS aren't supposed to donate to campaigns, but they can. Additionally, congresscritters receive compensation from corporations in the form of "after public service" appointments, appoitments for family members, vacations, stock options and many, many, many other ways.
If I want to have google snitch on someone I don't like, I just send that person an email with child porn attached from an anonymous eastern europe email address and google does the work for me??
