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.
sorry, but they're not in the same league as their '60s foregenderneutralpersons
I have to call bullshit here... but I'm not saying that as a defense of the current movement, but rather I'm objecting to your idealization of the 60's. All too many baby boomers seem to have a fuzzy, romanticized version of what happened in the 60's.
There was no shortage of bad actors mixed in with more idealistic folks then, just as is the case today. We have, with varying degrees of success, already sugar coated a lot of 60's history. All of the negative aspects you point out in the current movement have analogous issues in the 60's movement.
Of course, there were a lot of good things that happened as a result of the counterculture movements of the 60's. If we pretend there were no such negative aspects to these movements, and then use this optimistic but false dream of the past to condemn modern movements via a flawed comparison to an idealized version of the 60s that never actually existed... then it seems we have missed the entire point of these counterculture movements.
She would be entitled to take up to 12 weeks off. It's unpaid, though they would be required to continue to pay for her medical insurance. Afterwards, she would have the right to her job back, or an equivalent position in certain cases if her former position was no longer available. IANAL, but apparently she is
