If they dont match, it means the man is a fraud.
Oh, Rossi has already been amply proven to be a fraud, and spent years in prison for it after his last scheme, Petroldragon. I guess they didn't mention that in the press release.
He was however present for the loading of the initial "fuel" and the extraction of the ash at the end of the test (which was stupid, and suspicious - especially given the witnessed isotopic changes in the ash).
Or it was smart, as it was necessary in order to create the 'isotopic changes' in the ash via a substitution.
Therefore you're proposing that an electronic tally system be run in parallel with a paper vote tally system, where the paper vote will override any discrepancies found in the electronic system. Why bother running the electronic voting part of such a system? Such a parallel system is trivially inferior to a system that skips the electronic voting parts entirely and simply does the paper validation to tally the votes in the first place.
The only possible legitimate advantage I see in running an electronic voting system in parallel with a paper validation system is speed in the reporting of preliminary results, which in my opinion should be of minimal importance. I suppose voters might want to spend extra money on elections in order to be informed of a preliminary and non-validated electronic result faster. I sure wouldn't vote to spend my tax dollars on that, though.
What do you really mean by "in nature" and why do you think it's superior to whatever else it is that you've arbitrarily defined not to have the status "in nature"? It sure seems to me that the "nature" is used here as some sort of magical/mystical distinction rather than anything real and tangible.
The general category of all kinds of Pertussis is independent of humans, so your claim is technically correct for the all of Pertussis but entirely misleading for the subject of infectious diseases.
The specific strain of Pertussis bacteria that infects humans is only known to live in humans, see this previous post in this very page.
The livestock producer may not have added anything to his feed. All he needed to do was to feed his cows hay from a farm that used this pesticide. This problem goes several levels deep.
Amazon is in full, voluntary compliance with all Washington state laws regarding collection of sales tax, and always has been.
To use your format:
State of Colorado: hey you, out of state corporations, we claim that you are required to act as our agent to collect taxes on our behalf. You all have to serve as our tax collectors, and we're not even going to pay you to do so.
Amazon: We have no opinion whatsoever concerning your state's tax structure. That's your business. However, we aren't going to serve as your unpaid tax collector.
