That's a lot fewer jobs than the Republicans killed with their continual obstructionism and focus on social issues.
By the NRA fundamentalists' logic, we shouldn't have laws because criminals ignore laws anyway.
Right, but the point is that since Congress won't do anything, then we either let FDA make new regs on their own initiative or we potentially allow dangerous conditions to fester. There really ought to be checks and balances involved, but Congress won't do their job, so...
At this point the alternatives are either FDA doing what they're doing, or never getting Congress to vote in new regulations. Don't kid yourself that today's congressional Republicans will let any industrial regulations go through.
That's crazy, because multivitamins are dead cheap: something like $15 for most of a year's supply.
Dah, sorry, s/North Carolina/Virginia/ .
Yep. Mann was also investigated by former North Carolina AG and failed gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, basically for political reasons - Cooch wanted to punish Mann for daring to question Republican orthodoxy on AGW. The case was thrown out for lack of evidence.
You can still find new motherboards with one or sometimes even two PS/2 ports.
Mine was built in February 1988, just a few days after my younger cousin. Works like new, but there are times when I wish for proper USB hotplug and the extra 3 keys.
It's true. I hated Unity with a fiery passion around 12.04. I still dislike it (largely because of poor discoverability), but it's a great deal more bearable now.
Says the Internet Tough Guy who'd apparently like to shoot up a school to prove something, yeah. Fuck off.
As I posted elsethread:
Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution reads in part:
The Congress shall have power...
To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;
To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;
To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;
In other words, it was intended that we have no standing army and that instead we have a militia of armed citizens that could be quickly mustered to "execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions", and for this militia to be governed and regulated by rules promulgated by Congress (but ultimately under the command of the President as commander-in-chief).
The bit about "suppressing insurrections" is particularly damning of the idiots who think the intent for the Second Amendment was to give us the ability to overthrow the government. Even in George Washington's presidency the militia was used to suppress an insurrection (the Whiskey Rebellion), so it's quite obvious that the intent was to have the "well regulated militia" be our primary fighting force at least until a proper army could be mustered and fielded, and so the right for people to keep and bear arms was meant to make sure we had a militia capable of fighting.
Since we now have a permanent standing army, there's no longer any reason under the original intent for citizens to have an unrestricted right to keep and bear arms.
I am not making any arguments as to whether relying on a militia rather than a standing army is a good one, I'm just going for the "original intent" argument that gun-rights people have such a huge boner for.
 which is why we have the biannual vestigial fig-leaf of the National Defense Authorization bill.
Bullshit on anyone getting 12+ rounds a minute from a single-shot muzzle-loading anything. You're just wanking now.
