Fusion is the energy of tomorrow... and always will be
1. I'm not against nuclear but i'm not sure it's more efficient or safer than natural gas. Part of this may be due to the obstacles put in place by the enviromentalists, but it's a reality. 2. Electric cars may be simpler but with the current state of batteries it's doubtful they are actually more efficient. There is a reason they are so expensive. This wil l change and they will eventually take over (may be soon.) 3. Coal isn't all terrible. It's very cheap and we have a lot. It produces a LOT of energy that we can't easily ignore. Don't tell me to conserve energy when we have 60+ days over 100 degrees...

It really is the best if your goal is equality in poverty, No one has done it "correctly" because it's founded on a fatally flawed understanding of human nature. Workers are lazy and will not produce if they don't have to. Governments with totalitarian powers will never wither away.
Unfortunately? I'd say it's quite fortunate and well deserved. The 94 million victims might also disagree with you (well, they would if they hadn't died from starvation, firing squad, etc.)
What's the average cost per kWh for electricity in the US vs Germany? It's 12c in the US and 36c in Germany. Don't try and tell us how wonderful the green energy is when it's 3x the cost.
Where did you get the $20k price? I am finding $60-$80k/kg.
That policy is fine if you are not under any obligation to keep the data but many companies (financial, insurance, etc) are required to keep the data for a very long time. Govt is required to keep copies of the data as well.
Same here but i work for an insurance company and do searches for legal discovery all the time. We journal everything and keep it forever ( i think it's the same way for most regulated companies now.) It's highly suspicious that they can't find this data. I can find any email sent or received going back many years and i can do it within a week (usually within hours.) either their email/archiving system is completely fucked or someone is not telling the truth. Either way, there should also be a paper record unless Lois was intentionally violating policy. If someone knows anything about the IRS email architecture it would be helpful. Anyone know what email system they are on? I assume it's Exchange but it wouldn't make much difference if it's Notes/Domino (it might actually make it easier to recover from tape.) they must have some type of email archiving system. One other thing. from the IRS's own documents, employees are required to make paper copies for FOIA . http://www.irs.gov/irm/part1/i... 18.104.22.168.3 (07-08-2011) Emails as Possible Federal Records All federal employees and federal contractors are required by law to preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency. Records must be properly stored and preserved, available for retrieval and subject to appropriate approved disposition schedules. The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media. Emails are records when they are: Created or received in the transaction of agency business Appropriate for preservation as evidence of the government’s function and activities, or Valuable because of the information they contain If you create or receive email messages during the course of your daily work, you are responsible for ensuring that you manage them properly. The Treasury Department’s current email policy requires emails and attachments that meet the definition of a federal record be added to the organization’s files by printing them (including the essential transmission data) and filing them with related paper records. If transmission and receipt data are not printed by the email system, annotate the paper copy. More information on IRS records management requirements is available at http://erc.web.irs.gov/Display... or see the Records Management Handbook, IRM 1.15.1 http://publish.no.irs.gov/IRM/...). An email determined to be a federal record may eventually be considered as having historical value by the National Archivist prior to disposal. Therefore, ensure that all your communications are professional in tone. Please note that maintaining a copy of an email or its attachments within the IRS email MS Outlook application does not meet the requirements of maintaining an official record. Therefore, print and file email and its attachments if they are either permanent records or if they relate to a specific case.

Sounds great. Now hurry up and build it out.
