Comment Taxes (Score 1) 729

I live in a state with no state income tax, and the Feds took more than 30% of my yearly bonus. I'm thrilled to have a bonus, but I worked hard and it was a kick in the nuts to see that much of it taken. Essentially Americans have to put in a lot of hours just to feed the beast. And the best part is the US still spends about a trillion dollars a year it doesn't have, a luxury I am not afforded and a debt my children will never be able to pay.

Comment No credibility left at all (Score 1) 131

There is about the same chance that hydraulic fracturing leads to an increase in premature births as that hydraulic fracturing leads to the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. Unless these women are flagging down Haliburton trucks and swimming in the tanks this is utterly and totally preposterous.

But that won't stop the lawyers from driving in their expensive automobiles to the courthouse to file the law suit and it won't stop the charlatan 'researches' from getting paid big money to testify as expert witnesses.

Agenda science is doing far more harm than hydraulic fracturing, fiction like this 'study' should anger everyone who understands the lasting damage being done between the scientific community and the public.

Comment She has a point (Score 1) 653

Back in 2001 while ensconced at HP I had little love for Fiorina, the fact is she now has the obvious high ground. Now if she were still at HP and the Saudi's wanted to buy servers to track gay people realize she would probably take the deal.

Cook should look at the facts of the law in Indiana and chill.
