The poor slobs now have to sell you health care EVEN IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN EXPENSIVE CONDITION
Now why, why would any more or less healthy person who is not expecting a baby sign up for health care? Pay the small fine, it's cheaper. Pay out-of-pocket for the one or two times you need to see a doctor or get a flu shot this year. It's still cheaper.
And if you find out that you have cancer, a heart condition, or (like myself) a chronic condition like ulcerative colitis which is going to require tens of thousands of dollars' worth of health care every year to manage... well, THEN sign up, and get the Gold option, and laugh at the clueless corporate fucks in the insurance industry who thought that getting into bed with the government and forcing everyone to buy their product, would actually result in moar profit...
Economic sanctions alone can and will bring the US to its knees
Sanctions? Hardly necessary. To bring the US to its knees, all that needs to happen is for the Chinese to stop buying US Treasury bonds. Whoops....
I'm all for nuclear, I guess the part I don't get is why solar has no part. Maybe not from an industrial power grid scenario but I know two people who are supplying most (in one case all) of their home's power via solar. Are they doing something wrong? Is this hurting the chance for nuclear somehow?
Errrr, "youtube instead of slashot" rather.
> But because of people like yourself--who are too lazy to figure this out for yourself
Ok, did I miss a declaration of a douchbag contest? Did I accidentally click on youtube instead of facebook? Get over yourself and participate in the conversation like an adult, all I did was ask some questions I'm not out on the street marching against your views.
Interesting information, a bit overshadowed by unnecessary dickishness.
German might disagree, they are at 5% now and projecting to be at 25% by 2050.
Solar will never have a chance to become 20% of our power generation unless people try, you have kind of a chicken and egg problem there.
We now turn to Admiral Ackbar who I believe has a comment on this development....
> Solar accounts for 0.17% of our electric production in this country, tripling it won't make any difference.
Is this counting only energy company production or people/companies reducing their consumption from the grid by augmenting it with solar? If so, how?
> The sooner environmentalists get off the solar kick and focus on reality, the sooner we can replace fossil fuels with something else. (Which in this case is nuclear, since it is the only option left)
There can be only one?
I don't want useless add on application/browser extension/etc being installed when I chose to download something. No matter how much vetting and transparency, this is simply wrong.
Of course, but I'm talking more about overall project structuring, not line by line minutia.
Go decompile some oracle fusion middleware java code sometime. I assure you that what you find will not inspire confidence.
They added a feature. Despite the whiners, it's not taking anything away, and if someone doesn't like it, they don't have to use it.
I would like to see resale (or at least trading) of games, but this isn't a bad feature and certainly has its uses. Going on vacation or something? Let a friend play your stuff. Etc.
Actually, no it isn't.. Your assuming CPU instructions always behave the same.
Wow, you're an idiot. Obviously if you're paranoid that somehow not only has the NSA solved the halting problem and included code analysis on the chip that detects if you're checking randomness (and that this would take such a trivial amount of space on the silicon that intel could even manage it), you can always copy the data elsewhere and check it. Unless you believe they've done the same for every chip. Which is no more stupid, because it's that stupid to begin with.
(This applies equally to anything that "detects what you're doing with the random data" (making an SSL connection, generating a key, etc) and weakens it.)
