"Wow! That's a great question. Tough one, though I mean, what does one gauge his response on? Physical prowess? Keen detection skills? The ability to banter well with super villians?"
"With the decline of the conservative wing of the Democratic Party after 1960, the movement is most closely associated with the Republican Party (GOP)"
Literally the second sentence of the article... Thanks for playing.
And now you have shown why there is no longer any civil conversations in modern politics. You have repeatedly requested a citation for contentious claims. I provided a URL that backed up my statement and you instantly jump to insults and insinuations.
"Which was the party that pushed for and passed civil rights legislation over the objection of which other party? Which party was Robert Byrd from? Then there's that whole civil way thing that Lincoln used to free the slaves (simplification I know), which party was he from again, was that Democrat?"
You are making a common modern mistake. You are using the Progressive/Conservative categories and Democratic/Republican parties interchangeably. The time frame you are talking about the Democrats were the conservatives (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_modern_American_conservatism). You can and should be proud of the historical accomplishments of your political party but please be aware of which party would be implementing those changes to society today.

I am seeing this story getting traction all over the place using similar rhetoric. What the FDA proposed was removing artificial trans fats from the "generally recognized as safe" category.

This isn't some kind of government over reach this is simply using new science to update the classification of a food additive which is really nothing new.
While I agree with you about excessive control in some IT departments I have to say your example is not the best. Casino security is well known to be extreme. Your boss should not be surprised in the least that there was this level of security. Honestly it would be surprising to me if there were not screen captures of the entire session that the user was logged in as administrator just to keep the Security Officer happy. Anyone who works in a casino that doesn't have to strip down to their underwear at the beginning and end of every shift is lucky.
The gratuitous description of his file structure makes me think there is a small typo in the write up. I believe they actually caught him with a huge stash of Child Object Porn.
