It's easy to focus on the negative. I can find negativity in any area at all. That is a major problem with a lot of religious people, they focus on the negative instead of the positive. It's best to worry about your own negatives and concentrate on positives externally. It's alright though, go on and condemn all you want. It's interesting you take essentially the same stance toward those you condemn.
It's clear you have no understanding of religion. Everyone likes to focus on the nutcases running around foaming at the mouth. Any group has a percentage of these people who are unhinged. Many people who attend church do not, in my opinion, truly believe in a God. Many are there for the social aspects of it. A lot of people are there because it feels good to be around people of a like moral perspective. They like performing charitable works and helping others. It's a community. I've been to lots of churches and every single one of them had a different focus. Some are no more than glorified country clubs. The best ones though are the ones that have a strong faith that focuses on the soul. Not the ranting on and hatred of sinners but the love of others and the searching of ones own heart. Silly to you it may be but I know I've seen amazing changes in the lives of people for the better.
Damn straight. They're out to fuck you blind. Of course they buy up politicians by the bunches which explains the rush to defend the dealerships from competition by a new paradigm.
I come to slashdot to learn proper punctuation and grammar.
I think it's vision is being fulfilled by the Raspberry Pi. Cheap and low power it offers a lot of possibilities for education and seems to fire the imagination and creativity in children.
Don't go there. It's not about politics it's about money. I'm as far right as anyone around but I can't see where it's any government's business to regulate to this level. The only possible purpose this law has is to squeeze one business out to protect the established ones. I'm tired of these so called "conservatives" pushing more government regulation. He's not conservative he's a monopolist.
Many auto manufacturers own members of Congress it seems. Tucker already tried busting into this business ages ago by out innovating the established companies and he got stepped on. I can't see Tesla succeeding here either. It'll be one rule or regulation after another until they are buried.
I use simple and easy for everything non-monetary related. For things like my bank I use very long and complex passwords that I have to write down in a book. If I ever lose this book I'm fucked.
I thought the point was water usage. I missed the part about money.
That's interesting. I remember they were called sugar beets but that was ages ago when I was a child. I damn sure haven't bought any since I've been an adult, sugar or otherwise.
I noticed sugar beets used very little water comparatively. That may explain why they taste like dirt.
The statement that they export 100 billion gallons of water in alfalfa is silly. There is a sod farm down the road from me and they water grass like crazy. Is all that water in the grass? When they cut, roll and ship the sod does the water go with it? Nope. Some of the water is used by the grass for it's growth, a lot evaporates and a lot goes into the ground returning to the water table. This is pure propaganda of the worst kind. What about the cattle? How much water is in a pound of ground beef? Hundreds? Of course not! It may take hundreds to grow it but the cows piss out almost all the water they take in. That water doesn't ship with them. There is a cost to grow these things and it does take water but water is replenishable although if you overpopulate an area (California) it will become scarce. Maybe deserts were meant to be dry? This article is sensationalism.
Not that amazing. The US government has been sold off to the highest bidders. They just interpret the Constitution to mean what they want it to mean so it doesn't get in their way anymore. At least they're smart enough to know there are limits to what they can do without waking up the apathetic majority. As long as they don't go too far most people are content to ignore the danger of a government that has slipped it's leash.
I agree with the original poster. If you absolutely must have security then online gaming is going to be a big hole in your defenses. It may be possible to secure a gaming rig but you can bet it's a massive job. I'd never trust it for anything important.
1999 was the year of Linux on my Desktop. I could give a shit about everybody else desktops.
