Plutophiles need to get over it.
Driving a familiar route should be "management by exception"...
No. Just no.
When you are piloting a multi-ton death machine inches from others, you should not be doing anything but driving. The 32,479 traffic fatalities in 2011 were the lowest in 69 years. We lose that many people because of attitudes like yours. There's no other way to say it.
I'd like to see the average income for a Tesla owner, I imagine it is relatively high. I also imagine most would have bought a Tesla regardless of the tax break, so I agree we should not be subsidizing the sales of cars for higher income individuals.
I'm still in favor of the professionals making laws and public policy, rather than leaving decisions to *your* imagination.
But still... let me give it a try - "I imagine that Assad and the Syrian rebels would come to some accord if the U.S. threatened to nuke the entire country, so let's start with one of their smaller cities, and see if they take the hint."
Hey, I like this!
I wish I could do that, but I'm personally unable to listen to an audiobook while doing anything else without completely losing track of what's going on in the audiobook. The few audiobooks I've listened to in my life (definitely fewer than 10) I listened to while driving or while just lying in bed, actively listening.
You don't count DRIVING as "doing anything else"? Lovely. I hope I don't live near you.
The point is there's a bully. There's a need for someone that can help to help. I don't see why it's an issue that the world wants to help.
When 80% of bombing missions against ISIS are lead by the U.S., it's not "the world wants to help" it's the U.S. continuing to do what has failed for a hundred years, and almost certainly making it worse.
For a change, instead of killing lots of people in a fight halfway around the world, it would be heartening to see the U.S. let the regional countries decide how to respond.
I know you will continue not to understand, so feel free to have the last word. You're not showing comprehension of the point.
The name had washed over me completely when I read TFS. Not only the name, but the fact that we were talking about a Dell device. This thread has now set the name in my head.
There you go, and you can thank the folks I responded to for helping to set the hook.
I don't make the rules, I just make fun of them.
