Actually, the President doesn't have the power to give more funding to the CDC. That is the responsibility of Congress. You remember them, don't you? The ones who have been on vacation since July. The ones who haven't done a damn thing since 2010. The Repubs (you know that group of hard core right wing religious nuts with a dash of anarchist tea baggers) who control the house are hard at work trying to scare the bejesus out of their less than best educated base. They need a Czar (otherwise known as a "moron manager") to soothe their fears. They will never believe that they are more likely to be struck by lightning (or beaten to death by a troop of girl scouts) without this "moron manager" to tell them so. So, here we are, with a total of one (that's 1 for the morons) and two nurses who where unprepared to nurse him safely, affected with ebola here in the USA. WTF, have we become a nation of morons to be ministered to by morons who have no other plans than to try to be elected by their moron base in the midterm elections? We really have to increase our spending on schools and education, because, this situation is untenable!!!
It really doesn't matter as far as the TV goes, the sailor will be fired and thrown off the ship in the next port. Thus, the sea level will drop in proportion to his body mass.
First, Apple has tried (But failed IMHO) to copy Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones. Now there is talk about trying to "clone" Microsoft's Surface Pro! I think it's about what I've said about Apple all these years. They really don't come up with new ideas, just copy and hype old ones that all the Apple fanboys slather and drewl over. The only thing Apple is good at is locking their customers into a walled garden and relieving them of their cash!!!
As a Pharmacist of 33 years, I think your ideas are great. Unfortunately, it takes acts of Congress to change the status quo. And, as most people know, Congress has not been doing anything "good" for many years. They are more concerned with how much money big pharma is contributing to their reelection campaigns or what big pharma company is going to put them on the payroll as a lobbyist upon their retirement from government. Of course, changing this aspect of the corrupt Congress will take......wait for it......an act of Congress!!! So, face it we are all f----d!
This all looks great! HBO and other providers going internet for a price. However, the cable companies will have the last laugh. Wait until HBO has their internet signal throttled just like Netflix and have to pay more (much more) for bandwidth. Until cable companies are recognized as common carriers just like the phone companies, they will still be in the drivers seat as to what we can watch.
I've always preferred 38D cups!
Until you solve the radiation problem, you would just be sending people there to die from cancer. Sorry to pour cold water on all those "spacers", but that is as it is!
It doesn't take torches and pitchforks. It just takes one bullet in the middle of the night. There are lots of guns in this country. I'll bet many of you own one. I'm not talking about killing people, I'm talking about killing cable signal amplifiers. You know...those big ugly amplifiers every few hundred yards on the cable tv/internet lines all over America? It just takes one shot. If the cable monopolies start to lose and have to replace too many, they may just figure out it would be cheaper to support net neutrality! Simple!!!!
The solution is simple, just never authorize to receive a PIN number and the card can only be used as a credit card!
AT&T and Verizon, you should "Quitcha Bitchin" and start laying fiber! If you don't, no matter what the FCC calls "broadband", you'll be left on the scrapheap of internet history!!!
A bullitt through one of those big ugly signal amplifiers the cable companies have strung throughout America goes a long way towards showing our disdain of them taking over the internet.
Microsoft should respond to the Chinese; Where is the payment of all those thousands or billions of pirated MS operating systems being used in China? You have 20 days to pay up or we shut down all Microsoft software in China!
I'm sure Muhahahahamed and Allahlalala would not want their "Sheeple" to have high speed internet or 3G. Good!, so let the infidels have it so we can bury you in the trash heap of history! By the way, why do they call their god Allah? Is it because God already had the name and Satan had to look elsewhere?
Have you ever considered therapy?
I think Putin hopes all this will make the world forget the $58 trillion he owes Ukraine for seizing Crimea!
