IMO, this shouldn't be up to governments. They should act as a source of trusted advice, at best. The idea that the FDA might have killed more people than it's saved (by delaying the use of medicines that were later found to be safe and effective) is an interesting one, though I can't remember if it's ever actually been proven or is just some libertarian meme.
In other words, you are completely insane!
Saying it shouldn't be up to the goverment is saying anything should be allowed, so let in the lead paint. Surely the free market would never feed our children poison. It is not like they haven't done in numerous times before and continues to do so in counties with less regulation.
Well. Good luck with running a test feeding suspected toxics to human test subjects. While the scientific way it is not how we do medical research since Mengele.
So you are advocating allowing untested chemicals in our food, and only ban it once people are dying?
Well. Fuck you!
"Soverign debt is not like personal debt!"
As Dick Cheney famously said on the eve of the Iraq War, "Deficits don't matter".
He said that because sovereign debt really isn't like personal debt when the sovereign debt is in a convertible fiat currency. Because the difference between you and a nation is the power to issue currency. Do you know how many countries have ever actually paid off their debt? Take a guess.
The IMF is like a loan shark. They don't want countries to pay off their debts. They want countries to service their debts until such time as they can burn it down for the insurance (CDO) money.
What you are using a Dick quote as something other than a joke? What are you, a moron?
And that was new loans AT INSANE RATES.
Last time I've checked check dept per citizen numbers, Greek was roughly on the level of Germany.
But interest rates they are paying (and that mostly to German banks), oh my goodness:
Interest rates reflect the lenders perceived risk of not being able to retrieve the loan on time or at all.German citizens are vastly more productive than Greek citizens.
Not really, and that is not the main issue. The German government is a lot more reliable than the Greek one, and have been running a balanced economy for a long time, not just when they were forced to. It is one of the prime examples that austerity is the only was to prosperity. Of course every other North European countries has done the same, and have similar strong economies, only those who tried to spend their way out of debt are in trouble.
Yeah, but the Fields medal is bit difficult because it has a low age limit. So you have write somthing great and get recognized for it before the age of 30
As long as female culture remains the culture of fear
What is 'female culture?'
Culture specifically targeting women and primarily consumed by women, such as women's magazines and a long range of TV show. I think you know a few if you think about it.
They ironically tend to be way more sexist (against women even) than mainstream culture.
Internet Explorer is the only browser yet updated to block such an attack — patches for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari are expected soon. The researchers add, "Breaking the single, most common 1024-bit prime used by web servers would allow passive eavesdropping on connections to 18% of the Top 1 Million HTTPS domains. A second prime would allow passive decryption of connections to 66% of VPN servers and 26% of SSH servers. A close reading of published NSA leaks shows that the agency's attacks on VPNs are consistent with having achieved such a break." Here is their full technical report (PDF).
They will get to that right after they stop drawing male heroes in ripped and in skintight clothes or shirtless.
Except I don't know anybody who said "ya know, I didn't hate blacks and gays when I was a kid, but the older I get, the more I'm bothered by shit that has absolutely nothing to do with me."
Yes, you may get more fiscally conservative the older you get, but few people get more socially conservative the older they get. Which is why the number of people with libertarian sympathies continues to grow.
Actually that does happen. The older and weaker you get, the more prone you are to scare tactics and the more likely you are fear the unfamiliar,
