Now I know where all the old slashdot users went.
Tempting...hell grandiose fist pounding while barking demands to deploy....there wasn't even enough thought put into that for one to entertain that the person doing this reasoned through a mental pathway that could have involved contemplating a temptation (yes, I've experienced this). I attribute this to wild-eyed animalistic stupidity.
Yeah...and 1% is way too much.
The only acceptable opinion of government is suspicion and loathing. When people like government it becomes this icky thing where the figurehead turns into a god and that figurehead's actions are revered by those who aren't getting killed or robbed by him/her.
You CAN build your own routers....it may not be 1U but it will be secure.
I'm enjoying Lync personally.
Yeah, I think the revenue stream is very one they are refusing now.
I don't think there's a "doped up wacko party" in the US
Uh...it's called the Democratic and Republican Parties.
Free market competition has worked out how to put those legal requirements into a car without it looking like a 1980's Chevy.
fixed that for ya....
It's like everyone at the American car companies had a stroke in 80's:
I noticed at a very early age that big companies resembled governments.
Roads. Sewers. Electricity. Water delivery. Education. Hopefully decent health care. Working law systems. And yes, even something as basic as package delivery. Internet?
Slice out education and healthcare....those are far to complicated to compete as a government manged with a properly functioning market-based solution...and add in banking which should be boring and quite uncomplicated and devoid of profit. Straight-forward deliverables the government can handle...if it takes innovation and involves complex economic interactions you can pretty much guarantee the government will fuck it up--it simply can't help it. You can't micromanage things like that.
Doesn't work that way. People act like taxing a big profitable company is the end of the line, it is not. Those big profitable companies sell you nearly everything you consume. They do not take a hit to the bottom line from taxes, shrug their shoulders and move on with life. Instead they program the taxes into product and service prices--so YOU are paying the taxes, NOT the company. If you know anything about corp accounting/finance you will know that a certain percentage of return is required on products, raising taxes on them is just going to transfer the expense back to you and everyone else. If you really want to tax the rich progressively then you should tax purchases with a federal sales tax. Corporations makes jobs for people, real jobs where you can buy a house and cars, and toys---so yeah smack them with a 35%, hell 90% tax, and witness economic malaise. I don't think corporations should be taxed at all, no one who employs should be taxed.
In the US at least, all children are covered and have been for a long time. Pedantry: The statement was a "straw man."
Sociopaths are, for the most part, charming. The ones who do not get thrown in prison or institutionalized have adapted to demonstrate the proper behavior at the right time, simply to get what they want.
The driver was using tablets at 100MPH with 100 gallons of gasoline in the trunk in a high-mileage vehicle--hell bent on doing nothing but getting from one point to another as quick as possible. What could go wrong!?
Something tells me this would have exploded (just like in the movies) had it rolled.
