the hiatus? that scientists now think is being caused by heat being sent to the deep oceans? where we're now seeing significantly increased methane seeps?

The hiatus? What hiatus?

You mean the Inconvenient Truth that falsified all the major climate models of the "settled science" of global warming? Oooopsie. The dog ate all extra heat. I mean he buried it in the yard. I mean the ocean. Yeah, that's the ticket. The ocean. Yeah.

You see, that's the way science is supposed to work. You make a model. And claim the science is settled, and only "denialists" don't believe it. And then when reality proves it's wrong, you rationalize why it was wrong. Even though it was settled. And is settled. Forever and ever. Amen.

It's like the Pope, you see. Pope's are infallible. But sometimes they were wrong in the past. But they're always infallible now.

Manual overrides are key to most designs, particularly in new systems.

It's not going to all work perfectly. Not gonna happen. Make sure a person can brute force a solution. You can automate more when the requirements are better understood, and have stabilized.

The goal should be a *process* that works, whatever the tech, and that includes *people*.

If you want socialized health care, fucking socialize it and take private business out of the equation entirely, it will never work as long as there greedy businesses mixed in with it.

Yes, only people who offer value in free exchange are the greedy ones. Men with guns who take they want aren't greedy at all.

And no, killing people is not "an enormous, extremely profitable business" for the government. It is quite the opposite.

Killing people - not so profitable. Threatening to kill them - very profitable. That's where the power is at. Things are the way they are because most people support men with guns making it that way.

Yes, that's part of the tactic of the corps. No bureaucrat is going to cut his own project. Or his own budget.

So the corp over promises, and the bureaucrats sign on, thereby committing to the project and the relationship. The bureaucrats are never going to say "please cut the project where all my expertise and relationships are", even if he's not being greased under the table. Which the decision makers are.

Healthcare should have never been allowed to become for profit.

You win the Thug of the Day award. Yes, people shouldn't be *allowed* to exchange value for value based on their own preferences. The government should step in and shoot them. Yay! What a Brave New World!

It's costs that much because men with guns prevent competition from others who would provide those chemicals at a lower cost.

When I'm free to purchase medical care from anyone willing to provide it, it will be time to talk about market failure in health care. Until then, the medical mafia is just another shakedown operation enabled by government guns.

Health care is cheap. Government control is expensive.
