Or maybe he just doesn't want it to stop.
I tend to agree with this. They could have repealed the patriot act when Obama first got into office, but all the democrats did was trash talk the right about it and focus on health care. In fact, when the time came, Obama chose to extend the patriot act another four more years. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...
I will respond also and do so as young earth creationist. Now, before I say what I have to say I am not going to sit here and debate or argue with anyone. I have a job and a life and don’t have time to sit and argue on the Internet.
I clicked on the article and read the whole thing in its entirety and nothing has changed. Honestly I think this article attacks people who believe in the Steady State Theory more then anyone.
The Singularity in a gist, Extremely dense, hot ball of matter expands rapidly. The theory of inflation happens in there to deal with the horizon problem. Billions of years later here we are today.
So you found some evidence of a rapidly expanding early universe. Cool, I believe I believe in a rapidly expanding universe too. The Bible says that God stretched out the heaves. Now, see, I get the image of everything in the universe being in one spot and getting “stretched.” Kind of like your theory. The biggest difference is you believe that this happened on its own and I believe that it happens by the hand of a Divine being. You think it took billions of years to get to where we are and I think it took a lot quicker. So we found some evidence that says this happened. Again, you say naturally, I say Divine, but there is the evidence for it. Awesome.
However, those Steady State folks are not doing so hot.
Have a great night.
Some of you have probably had this happen. You run "Check for Updates" inside the security center. IE opens up to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com./ It check to see if you have the latest version of Windows Update. Awesome! You have it! Now are are presented with a choice, you can roll the dice and click "Express" and let Microsoft install everything Bing on your computer. Or, you can go pro and click "Custom" where you can select to install everything but the Bing crap. Ha! Jokes on you, no matter which one you click it will just sit on "Checking for updates" indefinitely. You search Google, you find the Mr. Fixit on the Microsoft Knowledge base and run it. It finds everything wrong, it fixes it, you are the champion, you reboot, you try again and the same thing. The green bar mocking you as it checks and checks and checks. You restart the Automatic Update Server, it doesn't help. You go pro again and hit Start -> Run and type "notepad.exe %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log" You are mocked! There are no errors, no warnings, nothing of value! You grab the tower, you give it a DDT, then you expel the foul beast from the office window into the parking lot 5 stories below. You return to your desk the victor, problem solved, life is good.
Since she is on Vista, you might want to look into Local Group Policies.
You have much finer, granular control over many aspects of Windows through it. It can take some trial and error, but you can setup an environment where only specific applications run and nothing else. Or, you can do things like not allowing application to run from specific locations (E.G. C:\Users\\AppData or C:\Program Data). Doing this can greatly reduce the amount of Malware and Virus infections. You can also prevent changes to things like the Start Menu or task bar, etc. A lot can be done with Local GPOs that doesn't seem widely known to the standard Windows user, but they can really help lock a machine down.
