Alternately, these might be Wal-Mart employees who've figured out how earn more than $15/hr by taking a cut of the fake savings, without appearing overtly guilty. At least, you for one are eager to assume they're too dumb to be guilty, which is probably true of their bosses also.

I would think the NSA's response would be to MITM the internet connection and have it download NSA spyware when you think you are loading the spyware detector. Blocking the download just draws attention to them, it won't actually block those who want the software from getting it elsewhere.

...leaving free fall gravity, finding another, landing on it, and taking off again to come back, all w/ people on board? That is a HECK of a lot harder.

I didn't say it wasn't - exploration is a succession of progressively more challenging objectives, and what the US accomplished in 1969 was certainly more advanced than what the USSR accomplished in 1957.

Picking one point in a never-ending evolution and calling the leader at that point "the winner (of all time)" is inherently rather false. But if you're going to do that, my argument is that putting the first object into orbit (or the first man in orbit - also USSR) compete very well as most significant firsts. At least, simply mentioning only the moon as if it's the only first that really counts strikes me as a bit silly.

Defining The Race as walking on the moon in the first place is also a construct that conveniently places us in first. The more significant "first" was not a person walking on the moon, but getting into orbit at all - a race, obviously, in which we finished second. The reason I say this is because we rely on satellites every day for many things (communications, GPS, weather forecasting, spying, hubble) whereas humans in space has no real applications for the foreseeable future. So, if we "won the space race," it is only due to anthropocentrism.

"Women are not paid less if they are doing the same jobs and spending the same time doing them as men do, "
demonstrably false.
I assume the rest of your post is based on that false data and did infect my mind with your stupidity be reading it.

Let be guess:
You incorrectly call it socialist. You assume gathering data that show something you don't like is 'whats wrong with America' and you make ad hom attacks against the article and author

Did I get that about right?

A) You can't seem to do math.
B) Female Vets do work the same hours
C) Female vets general spend more time with the pet owners then men.

"t 4-5 female vets do the job of one male vet."
this just keep driving me up a wal. So by your "logic" a female vet works 3 hours a day?

So people who are artists and nurses are stupid?

You are a moron,and I hope you have a lot of daughters so you can watch and try to fight a variety of entrenched attitudes and systems that push them away from what they want to do.
I have a daughter who like science and want's to be a game designer. I see how she has it stacked against her compared to my son.

Society pushes those biases onto the kids, not just parents.
