They are big government progressives.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records
... were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.
I see a lot of Slashdotters who are convinced Man-made Global Warming (AGW) is an absolute certainty, but when I analyzed the data myself, I saw how concrete jungles have expanded while temperature testing stations have stayed fixed (and concrete is warmer than grass). So now with even more evidence that biased scientists with clear motives have been altering the data for years, do you still want to believe?"

So explain to me how abortion is legal? A woman can kill a child just because it is Unwanted.
Russia does not want more oil on the market. Look at the price of a barrel of oil today. Russia will be bankrupt. They need $100 oil to keep their economy alive. But USA is now putting out more oil than Saudi Arabia due to Fracking.
Not Hawaii. Florida and Louisiana.
The major entitlement spending is for Medicare and Social Security. People are entitled to Medicare and Social Security because they paid for them all their lives.
Do you propose that the government not pay people the benefits they paid for as part of a contract?
That would be like buying health insurance from a private company, and having them decide not to pay you when you get sick and need it, because that would be a good way for them to save money.
You are not prepaying for YOUR FUTURE befits. You are paying for the people getting benefits NOW. Your money does not go into your special "Lock Box". You are paying for your grand parents and parents. Your kids and grand kids will pay for you. It really is a ponzi scheme.
My day job is building gas turbine powered frack pumps. We run on field gas direct from the ground with only a dryer and compressor.
Texas and Louisiana produce a little less than 30% of US domestic oil production. That does not count the offshore wells in federal water. It only counts land based wells. How about chemical plants and refineries?
Look at a map. Does not the Mississippi River enter the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana? How would that work out for you?
"Well Regulated" as in well trained or well disciplined. Like a regulated clock. The wrong definition is quite often used to justify firearm laws.
I am blind in one eye from childhood. I can not see anything in 3D. If a movie theater shows a 3D move must they also provide the same movie in 2D?
I guess I am part of a small minority with a vision disability. I can not see stereoscopically so no 3D for me. I NEED 2D. It is not an option.
Mod this up!!
Named after Navy people. Bush Sr. was a WWII Naval aviator. Gerald Ford served on a carrier in WWII. Jimmy Carter graduated from Annapolis and worked on the first nuclear sub designs. Carter cut the military so much in his 4 years you will never see a ship named after him. Which is why Reagen got a ship.
The first ship of a new design class names the class. The first ship of the current carriers was named USS Nimitz. So all following carriers are Nimitz class. The new carriers will be a new class. The first ship will be the USS Gerald R Ford. So the Ford class.
I'm unclear here. Since when did pharmacists suddenly get the right to override a doctor's prescription? How can Pfizer actually get a pharmacist to sign an exclusivity agreement.
It's not the pharmacist. It's the insurance company. The pharmacist can only dispense the drug as written on the prescription. The insurance company decides on what they will pay for. If the insurance company will only pay for a generic drug. You still can get the name brand drug. But you will need to pay the full retail price for it. It depends on your insurance policy.
