On the way to work this morning a co-host of some local radio station made an interesting point I thought. While "Republican In Name Only" traditionally meant a Liberal Republican, and therefore one who didn't really belong in the party, as the GOP nowadays seems to just want to be Democrat Lite, then to be a Republican is to be a moderate Progressive. Making me not a real Republican. Now I'm the RINO.
Recommend a face de plume.
"because the market likes to run in secret"
As the free market detractor that you are (which, BTW, in no way makes me the equal and opposite worshipper of it), it's not surprising at all that you don't understand it. "The market" is not just teh evil big business; it's everyone who engages in economic transactions. Sure the sellers want to run in secrets. Too bad the stupid buyers don't care. We get the businesses we have for the same reason we get the politicians we have; because we the little guy don't give a hoot. Average joes could have any kind of country we want, if we'd just vote with our dollar and ballot accordingly.
Why don't you run for office? You sound like an upstanding member of your community. And you care about America. I'd vote for you (believe it or not). I'm so sick of our ruling classes (political but business too) I've already gotten to the point where I would vote for someone I disagree with on some major things, *if* they're an ordinary citizen and not a ruling class douchebag. I lack the charisma to do it myself, but I'm encouraging everyone I know (which is only ordinary folk) to consider public service in regards to taking back our country from elites. That's my particular big tent philosophy.
Yep, and now to the non sequiturs. And you think I am predictable?
1996: (Phil Gramm) Bob Dole
2000: (George W. Bush) George W. Bush
2004: (didn't vote, as I signed a petition to try and get Nader on the ballot as a giant "Fuck You" to Democrats) George W. Bush
2008: (Fred Thompson) John McCain
2012: (Rick Perry) Mitt Romney
I guessed you were just a run of the mill idiot type of Obama voter. But apparently, you're a Lyndon LaRouche supporter, which just means you're insane as well as an idiot.
Don't need to. Been there, done that..
Predictably, you lied about having ever done that.
You're still refusing to ever provide any evidence to back up any of the claims you've ever made against me?
It's really cute how you resort to all manner of non sequitur to avoid defending your false claims. And then you pretend to think you actually made a point.
What was actually in the requirements and what the business customer thought was in the requirements were at odds. Apparently, a change was discussed, something was put in the requirements, and the business user signed off thinking her changes were implemented in it.
That's quite surprising. The UK is absolutely plastered with rides, but France not so much. I thought it would be the other way around, I've always thought of the French being much more cycle friendly (the UK seems very cycle hostile most of the time).
First Amendment rights don't extend to threats and trafficking stolen financial instruments
Fifth Amendment rights are clearly satisfied; the motion practice described above indicates he was charged and habeas corpus is not an issue.
Sixth Amendment rights are muddied by the aforementioned motion practice - I am positive that if he had wanted a trial by now, he'd have one. I think the point is that he'd get convicted of something, hence the delay.
Eighth Amendment - someone with a bunch of stolen credit cards available has resources, so evaluating 'excessive bail'
Woodward and Bernstein weren't instrumental to the Watergate case, they were simply public relations arms. The case was proceeding without them, and would have ended up in pretty much the same place if they'd been run over by a bus. Despite the mythology, the principals would have found some other reporter to feed data to. The independent prosecutor was the key to the case beyond February 1973, initially Cox and later Jaworski. It is important to remember that initially, the press reports of Watergate were not considered a large issue by the White House. The potential testimony of the burglars themselves was the primary issue initially, hence the hush money delivered until after the 1972 election.
Don't be quite so complacent in what you think students CAN'T do, especially saying "far beyond what students can do". When I was 16 I was writing assembly language competently, if I were 16 now, I would be (successfully) finding ways to tunnel stuff through normal HTTP traffic via a machine outside the network (it's not hard, certainly easier than learning asm). In a school of any appreciable size you'll have at least one student with the capability to do this.
