Then by your definitions, the current federal hiring practices are discriminatory. If you're applying for a position in federal govt you get additional preference for that position if you are female and/or a member of a minority. All else being equal, a woman, or a member of a minority, or a minority woman will be hired for a position that an exactly equally qualified white male also applied to. (Veteran status is another factor, which I actually happen to agree with. But that's a different discussion.)

Just one problem. "We don't know why this apparent contradiction exists, but we're researching it" is pretty much the exact opposite of "ignoring facts".

Which is fine, as long as this apparent open-minded and scientific approach is not regularly coupled with "The science is settled".

Researching methods to explain away the data that contradicts your forgone conclusion is not good science. Vilifying the science community that continues to probe the validity of that conclusion is even less so.

In other words, measurements from cities should show a marked and wholly false warming trend over the last decade or so. So we should be using the temperature measurements from only remote stations from the last 100 years to prove warming. How many remote temperature stations existed even 20 or 30 years ago?

Absolutely nothing wrong with that. If you want a higher quality product, you CHOOSE to purchase it. But that's not what this billing model is. It means to choose for you which quality of product you MUST buy according to the device they believe you will enjoy the product on.

I agree. And the fact that they continue to make a profit speaks more to the fact that the consumers are idiots than anything. But imagine a core group of political bureaucrats deciding how much of your tax dollars would be allocated to movies or television, and what kinds of things the government thinks you really need to be viewing. What message do you need to recieve?

And yes, I'm well aware that in many cases Washington is able to utilize Hollywood as a platform for their message. But at least there's a pretense that Hollywood isnt directly associated with this administration.
