Went and registered and voted in about 20 minutes. New to the area so had to bring a utility bill. Actually wasn't really concerned about the presidential elections as voting against a stupid amendment that was on the ballot. Minnesota is most likely going Obama but the votes on that amendment are too close to ignore. I have friends and family that are homosexual and I damn sure am not gonna sit on the couch while people try to take their rights away. Granted the stupid law already does that (and I voted against those jerks too) but I do not want it made that much more difficult to get it repealed by making it an amendment.
We are envious of what you have acquired, therefore we'll all team up and seize it.
You complain that it is socialism, yet I see it as the purest form of capitalism. One is able to influence physical force, which is the rawest from of power to gain what they want. John Ghalt would be proud, the lead antagonist was able to gain what they desired though using whatever means they had. Why do you complain about this? Utilizing the masses to gain what they desired has always been a mainstay of capitalism. The crabs are just ahead of the curve and an example of winner take all society. Think twice about what that truly means.
Snu-Snu the garthok!
Probably the law-breaking, savings stealing douchebage who packed up a bag of crap and sold it as AAA financial instruments while betting against it. However putting you heart close to either one will end up in misery.
Posting while drinking makes you forget ending tags. *facepalm* Well, at least the link still works.
I would argue that a billionaire wanting to sink money into this when the technology isn't there yet, should be taxed higher so that the money can be directed towards more urgent things
So you want to tax a man higher for actually putting his money where his mouth is and pushing humanity forward? Versus the other members of the 1% that are just sitting on their money in FDIC insured accounts? At least he's putting skin in the game. I argue conversely that those who sit and do nothing should be taxed at a higher rate. Force them to put their money into ideas and plans, rather then cower under the skirt of the government they hate so much.
Unfortunately the example from the summary are not fair use cases, more like original producers vs hangers on. The content publishers are using bot's without checking the results. They need to have some guy checking the flags and using sanity testing to verify if the flag is correct. I mean come on, NASA vs some newspaper in Cincinnati, who in the fuck is more likely to have produced footage from the curiosity rover on Mars. Or DNC coverage, who has the copyright, the DNC or a news organization rebroadcasting what the DNC made? Some types of people accept what a program says as the gospel truth, which leads to fuckups like the content flagging and Knight Capital. Computers are tools, not overlords as someone else said.
some shirt who would not know fun if it was beaten in to him with a rusty pipe.
I smell another blockbuster idea here. Beat the Shirt!
Now on iPhone and Android!
To make matters worse, their last gamble on a designer-led Maxis game, Spore, didn't turn out to be very profitable.
To be fair if they had taken the more obvious lessons from that failure Madden 10 would have been a very unique departure from the previous games.
Apparently ScienceDebate.org partnered with Scientific American Magazine to ask the questions. SA's page can be found here Hopefully their servers can hold up better under the strain.
Ummm... Small point, but 2-propanol IS isopropyl alcohol. So, no billion dollars to make the switch
And therein lies the joke, I ( a non chemistry buff) can quickly Google 2-propanol and see that they are one in the same, yet a normal automated HR screening process will kick one and accept the other. Kinda sad when you have a human resources check list without humans in it hey?
A snippet from the article: Mitt Romney's résumé at Bain should be a slam dunk. He has been a successful capitalist, and capitalism is the best thing that has ever happened to the material condition of the human race.
Capitalism has lifted the world out of poverty because it gives people a chance to get rich by creating value and reaping the rewards. Who better to be president of the greatest of all capitalist nations than a man who got rich by being a brilliant capitalist? Yet it hasn't worked out that way for Mr. Romney. "Capitalist" has become an accusation, Murray explains.
To put it another way, it should be possible to revive a national consensus affirming that capitalism embraces the best and most essential things about American life; that freeing capitalism to do what it does best won't just create national wealth and reduce poverty, but expand the ability of Americans to achieve earned success—to pursue happiness.
If it is necessary to remind the middle class and working class that the rich are not their enemies, it is equally necessary to remind the most successful among us that their obligations are not to be measured in terms of their tax bills. Their principled stewardship can nurture and restore our heritage of liberty. Their indifference to that heritage can destroy it."
