"THAT is a spacecraft, sir. We do not refer to it as a 'capsule.' Spacecraft." - Alan Shepard in "The Right Stuff"
And people wonder why I drive a 27-year old truck.
Not entirely the point. The general public for the most part doesn't care about rovers because they can't fantasize about being one. But, send humans and people want to be part of it.
You can't simply give these poor countries a bunch of money and expect them to spend it properly on healthcare or any other necessity for that matter. There will always be too many sticky fingers and blatantly corrupt functionaries involved. The right way to do this is for some external organization to come in, set up the hospital, and administer treatment with zero local government influence. Of course, the eventual result might be that a healthy populace will come to realize that their totalitarian government is really screwing them over.
The phones usually still work. Bell was right when he refused to use Edison's power systems.
Instead of spending tax dollars on hiring people and companies to do the same, the government is choosing to give the money away for nothing in return...except votes. Well played, entrenched politicians.

Partly correct. Yes, it's supposed to burn but whether it burns in a controlled manner or completely uncontrolled is another matter. Controlled burns and effective management of the forest which includes logging i.e. thinning the forest to attain optimum trees per acres works and everybody benefits. Closing off the forest to all human activity eventually results in disease and extreme fuel loads which when burned essentially sterilize the soil for generations which is what happened at Yarnell Hill.
What good is it going to do when the BLM decides to get territorial for 48 hours preventing local wildfire crews from containing the fire early which ultimately results in the death of 19 firefighters?
But at night I'd had these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat
Not zucchini, fettucini or Bulgar wheat
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat!
Again, show me chapter and verse in the text of the ACA where it says this. I'm not taking anything for granted at this point give how Obama said bunchteen times that people could keep their plan if they liked it.
I haven't heard that anywhere though. Sure, they can't "deny" you coverage but that doesn't mean they can't charge you extra if you smoke or have a family history of cancer or something.
