If we attach penalties for violation of the UN bill of rights governments would be forced to hold a much higher standard of behavior.

I suggest you take a quick look at the UN Veto Powers. Then ask yourself: "how likely are ANY of these countries to want real penalties attached to the UN Bill of Rights?"

If your answer to the question above was "why, all five of them would give the UN Bill of Rights some teeth in a heartbeat, if only someone would suggest it to them", then go right ahead and do so.

Then report to your psychiatrist and tell him you need stronger meds....

Success in life in not measured by how well you know coding.

Agree completely.

Alas, talking in public about things you know nothing about tends to make you look like an idiot.

Not that Biden needed "One More Thing" to help him look like an idiot - he's had that down for years.

Assuming life favors a single-star system when in reality it favors a twin-star system.

I'm assuming you are a native of a twin-star system who happens to be doing anthropology work among the savages in this system.

Because otherwise, I can't figure out how you'd know that life favors a twin-star system, given that we know of zero twin-star systems that support life.

So, the Evil Corporation decides to not make its employees work Saturdays?

And you're complaining about this?

I gather that this means that it's only evil if a corporation makes YOU work Saturdays, but if they make the people who provide you services work Saturdays, that's just fine?

Job growth in one year means there are more jobs. Forever.

What an intriguing theory you have.

Note that if self-driving trucks were to become available, truck driver jobs would all disappear...forever. In other words, new technology sometimes makes jobs disappear.

And job growth last year doesn't guarantee the existence of jobs next year. Otherwise, the Great Depression would never have happened.

Computers will not be perfected until they can compute how much more than the estimate the job will cost.
