Or maybe they just don't give a fuck whether it's an iPad, Surface or some kind of Android tablet.
You know, just like the rest of us...
Well, on the surface, I'd agree with you. Ha ha, see what I did there?
But usually in a marketing deal like this, memos come down explicitly stating that the brand name should be used often and conspicuously when referring to the product. Otherwise, whats the point of spending the money?
The rest of the words in your post, I don't even know what they mean. Sucking wheels? Doing work when its my turn? We're talking about riding a bike, right?
The birth control issue is about government forcing employers to pay for their employees' birth control. When there's a law that says employers must subsidize firearms purchases, I'll oppose that too.
Bullshit. Its about people doing things you don't like. Birth control (or abortions) is part of health care. Health care is part of your compensation package. There is a generally accepted standard of what health care is or should be, and picking and choosing based on your beliefs is kind of dickish
It would be like If your boss was a fanatical health nut, and said he wasn't going to pay for chairs for the employees, because he had a stand up desk. Technically that's his right.
Suppose he didn't want to cover *any* medical procedure , because his religion is one of these who don't believe in it http://childrenshealthcare.org/?page_id=195 "Sorry, no surgery for you. Pray that appendicitis away."
And we didn't put him on the science and technology committee or the intelligence committee, did we? Dems at least try to keep their crazies locked in the attic.
"you can't get pregnant from a legitimate rape"
“All that stuff I was taught about evolution, embryology, the Big Bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell,”
"She told me that her little daughter took that (hpv virus) vaccine, that injection. And she suffered from mental retardation thereafter"
''You know what, evolution is a myth. Why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?''
"President Obama wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob"
Do you get that? Never. I don't give a flying fig how liberal Romney is or isn't. These people aren't smart enough to be caretakers of the country.
Because I think social conservatives are busybody prudes, and I don't believe in supply side economics, so I'd never vote for any republican, because I want to make sure the republican nutcases in the senate and the serious republican nutcases in the house never get close enough to the levers of power to truly fuck anything up.
There, is that enough clarification for you?
I actually read this as "should developers be allowed to install software "on their own PCs."
Letting them install software for other users is a whole 'nother level of insane.
In my experience, developers no very little about the OS, security or any of the technical nuts and bolts of how an OS works, and what bits should not be modified, they know just enough to be dangerous. I've actually had a developer go into security settings and deny access to Everyone at the root of C:, to keep virus scans and software updates off their system. Of course, they didn't realize that "Everyone" means them too, and the system account as well, and are surprised that the machine reacted badly to this. Also, too, they managed to do this on a Friday when they had CRITICAL WORK that MUST GET DONE by MONDAYS DEADLINE!.
Which makes me want to ask SO WHY ARE YOU F#$KING WITH YOUR PC INSTEAD OF WRITING CODE? Lets make a deal, I wont write C++ code and you don't try to administer my boxes. Never mind, I wasn't doing anything this weekend anyway.
