Well, I feel your pain. Consider my karma, it has been marked so negative due to my political comments on "political" topics - Imagine that. So much for the "OPEN" people. I feel your pain and now only visit SlashDot once a month. Most of these people are half my age and don't know shit about shit...but rule like dictators. When they can't win, they silence. In my case, mod me so low, no one see's my comments.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
This is what the Leftist wants. No privacy, nothing. Maybe all the privacy you need is what you keep in your head..... Leftists claim they're for liberty, really? Leftists gifts America? Fake -paper money, Gov dependence, Internment camps, stolen our land in the name of fish/birds, smoking bans, music censorship, Echelon, Carnivore....so many liberties to list are gone. Are GOP Republicans also responsible? Yes.....
There is no shortage per se. But there is a disturbing trend.
1 - These so called Engineers are too linear. Especially in the healthcare field. Personal experience - while working on a project for a practice, installing DS3's connecting a practice to a hospital for radiology readings, I had to file paperwork and work with not 1, not 2, not 3, but 7 people to get it going. If any of you have worked with Dr's, you know they are VERY impulsive and inpatient. A network engineer, firewall engineer, routing engineer, applications manager, server administrator, data center manager, telecom technician, really? For a small-medium sized hospital? Project took 2 months after the DS3's were turned up my the carrier (ATT) and planning/scheduling was started the day of carrier contract signing.
2 - Lazy or lack of work ethic. Call it what you will but I see too many engineers who become out-dated and refuse to educate themselves or won't take a pay cut for their worth value in the competitive field. Tenure is only for the lazy and non-educated - yes, even professors become comfortable and out-dated in their position.
Right out of the BradThor book, The Apostle.
Flipside and most likely - the lawyers & patients get together to form a class-action against him. You know, the kind you see 3 times an hour on the TV's of a lawyer saying "Will make them pay!"
So question begs, why test drugs at all? Why should big pharma even try to help people....
Look @ the whole picture, these big pharmas do perform good and beneficial service even if the greedy "drug users" can't see or admit it....
I was wondering how long it was going to take for some toad to bash a Republican. PPL were talking about the conversion and metrics before Reagan was in office....Umm, yes I'm that old.
This keeps the Gov from getting involved and controlling the flow of information - a major win for the "person".

More Obama crony-ism. Nice to see Democrats doing what the Republicans do.....oh, that free speech thing they rail for but wants to ban hate speech? Against big business, they are big business
Reap what you sow. Corporate Crony-ism
I'm sure they left out the parts where he salted the earth after each slaughter? Salting earth = anti-green.
This is typical communist/fascist speak. Thinking the pie is only so large and can nvr be changed - everyone has to eat from the same pie. More work, make more pies.
