Yes it should be legal. You are the one broadcasting your information out to the public, why would it be illegal for someone to listen?
Where I live, not sure how common this is though, the police themselves have to announce, in advance, when and where a DUI checkpoint will be taking place.
Surprised I haven't seen more of this here: http://www.xoxide.com/acoustip...
Between that stuff and the Noctua super quiet fans and humongous CPU heatsink, I don't think I ever hear my desktop even when gaming all day, but I can easily hear when the server drives spin up in the closet...makes the whole damn cabinet vibrate.
Oops, commenting to remove accidental mod. Hit overrated, meant funny!
Your reply seems obtuse.
I am playing a little bit of devil's advocate so I am purposefully being a little obtuse hehe, but I do think that this is a perfect example of a process that doesn't need to be applied anymore, at least in it's current form. Winning elections without winning popular vote just doesn't make sense in my mind. I guess I am generally leaning more toward Democracy than Democratic Republic...
Right now the 'battleground' states contain a mix of both urban and rural concerns. This enfranchises a cross section of the American electorate, albeit arbitrarily.If the electoral college were eliminated, there would no longer be any rural 'battleground' areas since winning the densest population centers would be the only key to victory, effectively disenfranchising the interests of huge geographic areas across the country. An artificial cross section of American society is better than giving a voice solely based on population/density.
But that isn't why they are battleground states. They are just battleground states because half the state disagrees with the other half, it's not necessarily urban vs rural, so we are arbitrarily setting our electorate cross section to be roughly half democrat half republican, even though the general population is not. And yes, winning more votes from citizens should be the only key to victory, not winning states based on winner take all electoral college rules. I don't see why population, density, or who your neighbors vote for should affect your voting power.
This is something that the founders were mindful of, which is why we have a Senate. The electoral college performs a somewhat similar function.
I do see the need for this balance in the Senate for legislation and daily representation in D.C., but not for Presidential elections. Voting once every 4 years for the leader of your country should be required of every citizen by law IMO.
Until a better way can be found to mitigate the consequences of tipping this balance, it must necessarily be another can kicked down the road. As political cans go, it's a lot more harmless than the debt.
Yup, one of the many things to add to the list...how sad
I don't see the problem you are describing. Currently, people in hard blue or red states are disenfranchised and have no voice because candidates generally focus on campaigning in the battleground states, and their vote does nothing if their state is guaranteed to go to who they aren't voting for. If there were no electoral college and it was all done by popular vote, that would even out the voting power by taking it away from battleground states and putting it equally into the hands of all US citizens. Campaigning in dense metro areas would just be the most efficient way of connecting to voters, why is that a bad thing?
This is just a browser extension that isn't using any Facebook APIs though, so it is not bound by the Facebook TOS and dev EULA.
But the Steam box isn't something you should specifically have to code for, so I would think every game released on Steam for Linux after the Steam box comes out will should be available on it, regardless of sales from the box.
Road Rage caused by others being under THC influence will increase.
Seriously? You've never been around a high person have you?
addictive behavior will cause the exact same number of families to suffer and to be torn apart
Most studies say it is about as addictive as caffeine...most of it is psychological even, not physical.
bankruptcies due to marijuana consumption will go up while bankruptcies due to alcohol consumption will go down by the same number.
I'm just going to LOL at this one!
After all, burning gas in an engine produces useful work, burning it outside just produces a loud bang.
Best car analogy ever good sir!
"The luxury drink in question—Kopi Luwak—is produced from coffee beans pooped out by the palm civet, a time-consuming process that helps contribute to the beverage's price tag of between $330 to $500 per kilogram."
Wait a minute...we wait for a random animal to eat and poop out the coffee beans, and charge MORE for this? What exactly is supposed to make this better than the fresh coffee bean?
Same, I've never thought of sending an SMS to multiple recepients as anything beyond a for loop to send the same message 5 times to different numbers, since any phone could do that without any special SMS protocol.
there were officials sitting and watching the electronic tally in real time, with the IP addresses attached even, and they were able to spot it and track the IP to the physical location and get there before he was done. Am I the only one surprised at the level of security for a student election? I guess it has been a problem before, since they had this whole system set up for this...
Females futzing over cosmetics, shampoo, overpriced clothing, men extolling the virtues beer, of overpriced fuel guzzling hotrods, both of them falling for weight loss snakeoil, expensive and unnecessary pharmaceuticals, breast augmentation, hairloss treatments and cat toys.
I have to ask...what show are you watching that has cat toy commercials that are so evil and offensive? I'm not sure I've ever even seen a cat toy commercial...
I think a lot of people are focusing on the movies too much, remember that Disney does much more with their characters than movies. Imagine a Star Wars land at Disney world, Star wars cruises, and then do it all again with Marvel also. They are the one company is a position to do way more than just more Star Wars movies.
