Didn't Heinlein write a short story about something similar? "Life-Line" I think it was called.
To quote Chester "Snake" Turley: "Oh no, Beta."
Die in a fire.
OK. When you say Barack Hussein Obama, you just sound like a dick. I am a Patron level NRA member. I go to church. I vote Republican. I do not like Obama's policies. I am conservative.
But when you go on about the Hussein garbage, you are just making yourself and people like you sound like a racist. The reason why: You are racist.
Turncoat dixiecrat morons have invaded the GOP. You have dragged us down. You took a once noble and progressive party and made it irrelevant.
Stop it. Just stop it. Stop being racist. If you cannot, please take your festering hatred and crawl under a rock.
You are not civilized. You are not genteel. You are not polite nor engaging. You perpetuate stereotypes that are harmful to people whom really want restrained and controlled government.
Your opposition of a man's middle name (and cultural ancestry / skin color) is an embarrassment to people who would oppose Obama's policies because they are bad.
Either stop your behavior or go away. If you persist in your vile behavior, you are damaging the party and the country.
I am under no such belief. Nevertheless, it does not mean that a man cannot regret things that happened. Obama is a man, and most men are good. He might, for the sake of getting things done in Washington, ignore the morals of pardoning Snowden. However, on the last day in office it is common for presidents to pardon people that really deserve it, but it is politically inopportune to pardon. I believe Snowden definitely falls into this category. I also believe that a good man would pardon him.
A Presidential Pardon, issued at 11:58 am on January 20, 2017.
Seriously, Snowden's a hell of a guy and did a real good thing - they even recognize this by their claims for the need to limit the actions of the NSA. But the administration cannot condone his actions. Hence, a last minute presidential pardon is the only politically viable option.
how long before we are all driving them to work on 7 layer freeways in the air?
At the moment, never. The energy usage is too great for the average person to be able to afford. The mean hours between failure is atrocious, especially given the catastrophic results of failure. What you propose would require a technological seachange, one that cannot be predicted at the present time.
(If you are being sarcastic, then good job.)
There is no power plant outside of diesel and nuclear that can provide sufficient power to move a cargo ship that is so critical to global trade.
Ships did OK on coal.
To keep it from killing things I want to kill or to keep it from interfering with me reintroducing a species, such as wild turkeys.
Yes. I will admit, I enjoying hunting. It is something I am good at and I take pleasure in what I am good at. I would not kill a creature I did not intend to eat though, unless it was to serve a purpose, such as killing a coyote.
I also would not give a mouse to a snake, for example - owning a snake is puerile. Snakes serve no purpose, much as putting an unendangered animal into a zoo serves no purpose.
I like killing and eating geese and pheasants; I call it hunting. I would not torture one for several days before I killed it. That would be wicked and cruel.
[squints eyes] Can't tell if being ironically funny or not.
How about we get the offsides tracking working? Andy Carroll put that ball into the net during the FA Cup, and that's what happened. Give us back our trophy, damnit!
You absolutely need to keep him from books. Good God, the man could copy/steal Pride and Prejudice and post it to a website! Or he could read the Daily Telegraph and learn how poorly Manchester United is doing.
For the love of Pete. Has this American sickness infected everyone?
