I guess you don't understand how the 501 application process works. When you apply, you are able to operate as if you've already been approved until you get directly denied. Those groups were not prevented from operating as 501's, they were just asked to prove they qualify for the 501 status they applied for, even though their application was in violation of the 501 status they were after.

First - They investigated liberal groups as well & only denied a liberal group, no conservative ones at all.

Second - Per the tax code 501(c) status requires exclusive welfare activities, and directly states in the code no political activity. SCOTUS read exclusive to mean mostly, thus creating a new law illegally in the citizens united case.

Third - Fox is a republican owned propaganda network. There's no facts behind it.

No. The habitable zone is the range where life (if all other subsequent conditions are met) may potentially exist.

It strictly means the distance from the star wouldn't burn off all the water or result in a giant ball of ice.

The rest of the factors are looked at after the habitable zone check, but aren't required for that check.

That's basic economics. The wage goes up, but prices only have to go up a tiny fraction due to the distributed source of paying for that wage. It's not this 1 for 1 that people think, it never has been and it never will be. That argument is brought out every single time min wage is increased, and it gets proven wrong every single time.

The math has been done to prove in order to raise McDonalds workers wage to 15/hour, the price of a big mac would only need to go up by 43 cents. Thats all.

Over here in the US, if you try to regulate a proven safety feature to become standard, they think your trying to institute communism, fascism, and a terrorist all at once. The conservatives here basically won't be happy until they are allowed to blanket murder anyone and everyone for any reason and without recourse against them. That's why they deny the fact of climate science so much, because it's about to become the most effective tool to murder the entire population they could have ever dreamed up.

Minivans and SUV's will have them, and they back over more children than RV's and semi's do by far. I'm more concerned with the idiot driving the SUV than the guy driving the Semi, at least the guy in the semi has trained to drive a large vehicle. They let any idiot drive an SUV, see every hummer driver ever.

No they won't, because it'll be part of the stock price. They'll either be in the market for a new car or they won't. If they aren't in the market for a new car, then taking the camera out of it won't change their mind.

On top of that, getting a camera on a new car from factory NOW is only around $100 additional, after market is the 500-600, because they have to dismantle portions to put it in.
