Nuclear still exists. People seem to forget.
You are making a fundamentally flawed assumption that the government cares about false positives. I think our no-fly lists, jails, and police militarization are a pretty good indicator that a low false positive rate does not figure into calculations as far as the NSA, TSA, DHS or other TLAs are concerned. A cynical man (or woman) may also wonder about whether true positive rate figures into their calculations at all as well, or whether a power grab is the sole purpose of these agenices.
It is impossible to enforce the laws when you can catch all the violations
You're asking the wrong question - the correct question is this - how have we wound up in a situation where he have so many offenders, of so many laws, that there's not enough resources to lock them all up even if we knew every last one of them.
The answer is simple - if you create a job which comes with money and power, and where the job description is writing laws - you are going to have more laws. It's inevitable. And in a society where as a lawmaker you are rewarded for being "tough on crime", each subsequent law will be nitpickier and more punishing than the last.
That's it - our own system is going to bury us all in petty crime.
Freedom is the ability to break little rules. Rule of law is when you get caught when you break the big rules. A police state is when everyone is guilty, and it's up the police to decide who gets caught at what time.
As someone who was born behind the Iron Curtain, I promise you that the latter is very very scary.
So what the enemy needs to do to win is to get disable codes?
Given Pentagon's contractor efficiency and reporting requirements, the choices will probably be in a plaintext file accessible from the internet, in a budget report.
or just cover it with shrink-wrap to keep the dust out
And we could take solace in this, if not for the fact that this is now somehow considered a radical liberal agenda.
Streaming media is by far the largest consumer of bandwidth.
This has nothing to do with their network infrastructure, and everything to do with the fact that they would like you to pay out of pocket to stream media on their network. With a 10gb monthly limit on my 4 user plan, if I go away on a trip and watch 3-4 netflix movies in HD, I've used up my entire monthly allowance, and then streaming becomes pay-per-view at $10+ per movie.
They are annoyed that they have customers who still have an "unlimited" plan, and they are effectively converting those users to having a usable 5gb plan.
Finally, silly bureaucratic holdups will no longer preclude Mr. Archibald Buttle's addition to the terror list!
Of course there would be. That's not the point, and not at all what I was talking about. General education ensures that a person at level 1 with aptitude for level 5 under perfect conditions, can get as close as possible to level 5. Or are you having trouble reading?
I'll feed this troll.
...we're lead to believe with enough money for education everyone can be intelligent!
Appropriate general education ensures that we all have a chance to get to a certain level. Surely some people are more intelligent than others at baseline, but like most characteristics it needs to be exercised and developed... in the absence of education, it's easy to waste what you were born with, and that's what general education tries to prevent - the waste of intelligence. The other important role of education is to ensure that no matter what your level of education, you receive instruction sufficient to let you integrate into society.
you forgot the part about bankrupting the country along the way...
Her usual pharmacy didn't have it in stock, so I had to find another that did.
That sounds familiar. These prescriptions can be a bitch to fill. My father was in a really bad shape after a fall and the doctor prescribed him oxycodone (I don't think it was pure, may be percocet). I drove around the city half the night trying to find a pharmacy that would fill that prescription. After the fourth pharmacy, seemingly innocent "oh, we don't carry that" excuse sounded really disingenuous.
You've got to be kidding me. Almost no drug gets anywhere near that. I'm happy with one log10 of leeway.
I wish the penalties for trolling legislation would be at least half as severe
