It is possible, reading standard histories, to forget half the population of the country. The explorers were men, the landholders and merchants men, the political leaders men, the military figures men. The very invisibility of women, the overlooking of women, is a sign of their submerged status.

what is religious bigotry (oh, I'm sorry, religious freedom) that is used to deny equal rights rooted in?
I'm afraid you'll have to offer an example. Also, a definition of "religious". Do you mean "religious" in the sense of the Church of Global Warming, or something else?
The Affordable Care Act was never, at any point, other than a river of lies, with headwaters in hell.
If I had a lot of confidence that the GOP would actually deliver some reform and help people, and let the free market minimize the "ridiculous social injustices in this country", I might get all partisan on you about November.
Translation: I'm a Redmond shill trying to sound reasonable, but I can't help but make blatantly pro-Redmond statements like "significantly better than a comparative Tablet OS"
Do you have any fucking shame? More importantly, do you think we're fucking idiots that we don't recognize you for who you are?
Metro has a low market share; as in most users are happy with the classic desktop, and RT devices are such an insignificant market share that why would anyone bother developing for it? Besides, there are enough common UI toolkits for Linux and Windows that I doubt there's that much additional support involved.
Face it, Metro is a dismal failure on every front.
Car dealerships are usually multi-brand. They're happy to see a new brand as long as they can profit from it. This is a big FU to dealership owners from Tesla, saying "we don't need you to sell our cars". And Tesla is right of course: they don't.
Never underestimate the political power at the state level of car dealership owners. They have name recognition and a marketing budget that dwarfs any state senator, and everyone in state government sees this. As an elected official, you don't pick a political fight with someone who already has his name and face across half the billboards in a major city, and spends more on ads every week than you did on your entire campaign.
That's easy for adults to manage but not so much for kids. I just think it's miserable that we're still making connectors like this in the 21st century - just make all connectors cylindrical, dammit. It's not like we're talking about 32 pins here.
Any cable that has any sort of orientation required to plug in is a crap standard and needs to die. All connectors need to be barrel or minjack style connectors, that are easy to plug in blind.
Fox News now has higher ratings than all other cable news networks combined. They have achieved their goal.
If you can actually find a news program on Fox News, it's the most accurate of the cable news networks (yes, really), but I don't think people actually watch these for the news, they watch them to see pundits shouting.
