Are programmers willing to work for $45/hr? Then that is what they are worth. Did you think the laws of supply and demand don't apply to you (you precious thing)?
Or, you could just go to the store and buy some.

Nasa 2014 - about $18 billion
Iraq + Afghanistan - $4 to $6 trillion
So about 200 to 300 times more for the war than what NASA gets this year.
What Taxi owners enjoy is a system of "Supply Management". It artificially creates scarcity, eliminates competition and keeps prices high. The owners of the medallions make a fortune, the taxi drivers make less than minimum wage, and the consumer gets a bunch of problems including waiting far too long for cabs at peak times (bars close or cruise ships arrive). As with many things done with good intentions and counter to market forces it has the opposite effect of what you claim is intended.
Not believing in a deity (because perhaps you see no convincing evidence of one) means that one possible explanation - "God made everything" is rejected. There are any number of other possible explanations of how the universe came into existence, and you might choose one based on observation and evidence rather than faith. Or do you think that belief and faith are the same thing?
Anthropocentric global warming is being forced down our throats. But not in the way you meant.
How is it not a kids toy?
1. "bitcoin has too much fluctuation for them to hold it" - correct
2. Do you want to show up at the hotel and be told you have to pay more to make up the short fall - What shortfall? See #1.
Mod the hell up and close the thread. Not much left to say.
Windmills do not work that way. Good night.
"When women are paid less then men for the same work" - Where are these women? I want to hire them. If they will do the same work as men for less money, I am going to replace all the men that work for me with these women. Any sensible employer would do the same.
Mod way up. I have a relative who has moderately severe schizophrenia. Unable to make good decisions is exactly what this condition causes. Add in some paranoid delusions and you have a person who seems perfectly ok (on a good day) but is utterly incapable of functioning in society.
You just listed the long term goal. The immediate goals of a terrorist act is to cause terror and to provoke a disproportionate reprisal. The reprisals helps further radicalize people and help recruit more members. I think they succeed on all 3 short term goals. As for the long term goals, the war isn't over yet.
The problem is Engineers can read and write but Artsies can't do math.
My engineering degree required 5 full-year Arts courses along with all the math science and engineering. These were the same courses that students in the faculty of Arts took. Writing a coherent essay is something anybody should be able to do,
On the other hand, how do you teach even beginning level engineering classes to someone who last took math and science in the 10th grade. Even if you dumbed it down for the Artsies, first year physics for example, without trig and calculus would be impossible. Chem 100 without Chem 11 and 12?
The Big Bang is highly questionable and politicized? How so?
