Nobody ever seems to want to solve the problems they have. That's hard. It's easier to solve problems you wish you had.
I locked up my gun today so little Jimmy couldn't blow his brains out. He'll be fine now.
Those are more "recreational activities" than games (i.e., with an "object"). I've enjoyed both team and individual sports my whole life, as well as recreational activities like hiking, camping, shooting sports, etc.
I've owned or played just about every console since Atari and video games never keep my interest for very long. I eventually get bored and unsatisfied; with almost an "empty" feeling after playing. I get more gratification from losing a round of golf than from leveling on a video game.
Obviously not a lot of sports fans here, from the look of that poll. Lot's of inert protoplasm.
I stopped at the very first line of TFA.
"After a year fully in place,
So, why bother? It's a sales pitch.
WRONG! The Government.
Doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, patients and employers have only had unneeded and unwanted intrusion, regulation and control into all their interrelationships. None of them benefit. The Government (i.e., "the people of the government" or the ruling class) are the only winners. Everyone else pays and loses at their expense.
Well now, that's a President who's getting it done (i.e., by asking/demanding/challenging somebody else to do something).
And that really puts the pressure on China. I mean, it's not like they can ignore a Presidential challenge. (/sarc)
They're all a bunch of idiots.
Despite the fact that I view the practice of texting while driving to be every bit as stupid and dangerous as DWUI, she's trying real hard to distinguish herself as she runs for State AG in NY. A state not known for placing a high priority on individual liberties.
... meaning, do you also provide input on some of the pop-culture in the show (e.g., Star Trek, Star Wars, comic books, Dr Who, etc.)?
The idea that we need to allow in more workers with science, technology, engineering, and math (“STEM”) background is an article of faith among American business and political elite. But in a new report, my Center for Immigration Studies colleague Karen Zeigler and I analyze the latest government data and find what other researchers have found: The country has well more than twice as many workers with STEM degrees as there are STEM jobs. Also consistent with other research, we find only modest levels of wage growth for such workers for more than a decade. Both employment and wage data indicate that such workers are not in short supply.
The NSA (and the rest of the government) is mostly staffed by incompetent idiots. Mostly. Don't give them more credit than they deserve.
Then again, sufficient incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.
Golf's not really much more expensive than other common recreational activities. More than some, less than most. Skiing, boating, hunting, fishing, tennis, RV-ing, etc. Golf doesn't require a large up-front investment nor travel. And as for the time spent playing it, I think you're not quite getting the whole recreation thing.
Even before the start on the American Revolution, the Colonies had a standing professional Army.
They were called Redcoats.
..., that makes carbon dioxide 317,000 times more problematic than PFTBA.
AH HAH!! So, you admit PFTBA is a problem. Well, since when does a politician NOT solve a problem? When the solution is worse than the original problem? No, of course not. They're in the business of selling solutions.
