Yes, it's a magical totem where you never have to fill in the numbers. Just like all math.
....they never took Obama's budget proposals seriously. I'm not sure why the rest of us should even bother paying attention.
It amounts to them paying them to cut their own throats. If I take money to cripple and degrade my product that's kind of crazy.
Probably something to do with Dice.
I don't have a problem with your decision to not participate. I do have a problem with you condemning people who have decided to help with building the national defense. If you think that this technology is being misused that is an issue to be taken up with Congress and the President. The people that work towards building the necessary framework for the defense of the country obviously hope that their work will be used for the good of the USA. I for one look at groups like ISIS and am glad that the means to fight such evil exists.
I've known a lot of people who bought mac computers because they just got tired of all the malware and even worse junkware on PCs. All the people I know that went from PC to Mac were amazed at how there is absolutely zero crapware on new Macs. None...nada.....zilch! Why PC makers insist on crippling their own product I just don't get.
Jobs was a guy that could dazzle you with brilliance and baffle you with bullshit at the same time.
If Sony hadn't tried to hang themselves about a dozen times the Xbox would never have gotten off the ground. Despite the fact that Sony has shot themselves in the foot over and over the playstation 4 is outselling the xbox one. How a multibillion dollar corporation can be so inept and still make money is beyond me.
How silly. The NSA has run amok a few times due to lack of oversight but to compare them to the forces of evil is ludicrous. Sadly they have fallen prey to a common failing of many people, to feel that the end justifies the means.
It's entirely possible that they feel they are acting ethically by serving their country. Not everyone feels that it's wrong to work for the Department of Defense. While there are some problems with the lack of oversight on the NSA they still perform a necessary function for the Defense of the country.
I don't get it. What do you think these people are for? The NSA is built to spy on other countries and people communicating with those countries. DARPA is a "Department of Defense" agency. Their purpose is to build and design things for the Defense Department. If they can be used for the common good fine but that's not their first purpose. I don't understand hating these people for doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing. Jeez!
There is no overwhelming evidence towards AGW. The models have all failed to predict the non-growth in GW over the last decade. Only people listening to appeals to authority actually believe the models are working. And worse, the predictions (no ice cap, bad hurricanes
And you have failed to prove that government can solve any problem.
"revenue-neutral carbon tax would be quite progressive"
That is impossible. First off, Government always gets its cut of the pie, so there is no such thing as "revenue-neutral" (first lie). Second, all taxes are regressive, as poor people cannot avoid them as well as rich people can.
And only liberals figure that taxing something is a right of government, and the "go to" game-plan for all progressive "solutions".
If you want to use Food Stamps as evidence of liberal success, I think you have it. More people are on Food Stamps than ever before, SUCCESS!!!!
Oh, and by your version of reality, conservatives hate bears!
Scientific Consensus is Opinion. Global Warming is a theory.
Global Warming is a theory backed by Scientific Consensus. It is an opinion of a theory.
The problem is, people like you think that Global Warming is fact (it isn't) and the scientific consensus is proof (it isn't). But keep making that case all you want, it doesn't help convince people like me who want actual science.
