They dont have to pass anything. Just let it expire. Saying they HAVE to do something is supporting it.
"Can people afford to put a solar array on their house with $70k income? No"
No? only a doofus thinks that. I put one on my home when I made only $40K It's not expensive if you don't use the overpriced made in america solar panels.
I bought China 200 watt panels for less than $1.50 a watt. then installed a syncing inverter and use the grid as my battery. I actually run the meter backwards.
If you make $70K and cant afford solar, then you are either a fool, or someone that can't budget money very well.
I'll give you $50 cash for each of them.
Most will be sold by the end of the summer.
90% of those publishers either publish tripe, or rip it off from elsewhere. in fact a LOT of those sites simply rip off other people's work and pass it off as their own. LiveLeak for example steals stuff from Vimeo and youtube.
Depends on how much the US judge would have been paid off.
I agree he doesn't belong on that list. I do think on the list of America's worst presidents, he'd be at the top of the list.
Ignored warnings from the previous administration, top FBI officials ignored field agents who were warning of something bad, and got our country attacked.
Then he started an incredibly stupid war in Iraq, which led to the rise of ISIS.
Presided over the building of mass surveillance of the American people.
Took office during a boom, left office under the worst economy since the great depression. It's my theory that what caused the ruined economy was fuel prices more than quadrupling during his reign. Buy gas to get to work, or pay the mortgage? Tough choice!
Took office with a balanced budget, left it with the largest deficit in American history. Meanwhile, infrastructure was crumbling and he did nothing.
Now, if the list was of people who did the most harm to our country, he should be on that list. Mao and Pol Pot were very evil men who killed millions of people, but they didn't harm America.
I like the way you think!
In schools you need a shock collar on the student, and then everyone votes to shock them.
You need to fix them in school before they become useless MBA's
The voices in his head, and the Art Bell radio show coming in on his tinfoil hat.
It never needed to exist. NEVER NEEDED TO EXIST.
It was passed by idiots that did not even read it and was created by some war mongering evil idiots.
The next flavor of doritos.
A lot better than the 8 years of wrinkly nutsack we got from Bush/Cheney.
Although this time around it seems we have a clear indicator that Obama is absolutely no different than Bush. Anyone supporting the PATRIOT ACT is working against the american people.
It's because the USA schools SUCK. utterly SUCK. Most schools do not teach a lick of CS, and MOSt of the money the school has is not put into sciences and math, but the worthless sports programs.
American kids will graduate as scientifically illiterate dum dum's until this is changed.
There may be good reasons for the 'pedestrian detection' feature to be an extra purchase(more sensors, more DSP, recouped development costs, etc.) or it may just be a single bit in the firmware waiting to be flipped in a magic screwdriver upgrade; but either way, "Yeah, we have a feature that would have prevented that accident; but it didn't because we prefer to charge more for it." seems like the sort of statement that is likely to attract the wrong sort of scrutiny.
If you admit to having the mature capability; how long before failing to include it is negligence? Will you be able to keep it as an add-on, rather than a standard feature like antilock braking? Are you absolutely sure that your sales people didn't misrepresent the capabilities of what they sold? and so on.
It seems as though they'd be much better off just issuing a flat 'don't do stupid irresponsible things' and quietly dropped the matter.
