Sounds like as good a premise as any for a Sci Fi Original Movie(tm).
Because God knows that London is the only city alien disturbances happen in. Also, it's apparently literally the only city in the U.K.
When I read the headline, my brain filled in "-Day" because of everybody constantly pounding on the term "Zero Day" around here.
Although admittedly the 4th and 9th would seem to apply in this specific circumstance, strict constructionism can obviously be taken too far as a general rule. "...are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." is obviously a bit vague on the divisions.
For the first 9, sure, however the 10th deals precisely with the difference between the federal and state government.
Ironically they stop the peaceful anti-shooting protestor while armed with machine guns.
Them stretching the law as far as they can get away with does not change the original intent of the law.
s/the govt/the federal government/g
s/is to do/is allowed to do/g
Your phraseology is introducing ambiguities. Is the above correct?
The state governments would still be completely within their rights to do the same. I'm not quite so confident in your proclaimed understanding of the Constitution.
This whole argument sounds like rationalization after the fact. "Oh, of course I knew the tech would never work...I was just planning to outspend them...yeah, that was the plan all along!"
All you'd need would be a well-targetted trebuchet to bombard Earth from the moon, wouldn't you? Seeing as the moon's gravity is so low.
Challenge accepted. I think we've abundantly proved that just because something is a suicidally stupid idea, that doesn't mean some politician won't run towards it screaming and waving his arms, telling everyone to be patriots and follow him.
It sounds like they're entirely relying on the collector value to sell these things. Good on them, I guess, because apparently people will pay ridiculous amounts for "collector" shit.
"Star Wars" worked?
Under the administration of President Bill Clinton in 1993, its name was changed to the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO) and its emphasis was shifted from national missile defense to theater missile defense; and its scope from global to more regional coverage. It was never truly developed or deployed, though certain aspects of SDI research and technologies paved the way for some anti-ballistic missile systems of today.
If you consider rescoping the project and completely ditching the satellites to still 'work', yeah, I guess.
Heh--I do really like that the satellite component had the acronym ERIS, though.
Paradoxically, the Republican voter base loves love Social Security. They just don't love social security.
