And that's the problem with politics, maybe these people should start worrying about what is best for the country, and stop worrying about how to get re-elected.
The restructuring of General Motors would have happened had the government stepped in or not. Plenty of corporations have went through a restructuring bankruptcy plenty of times and came out stronger on the other side. Ever flown on an Airline? Every major US carrier except southwest has gone through bankruptcy proceedings and kept operating, and rarely do employees lose their jobs. When I left the Air Force and went to work for American Eagle they had just filed bankruptcy and everyone I worked with had years of seniority... hmm. Somehow had General Motors gone through a chapter 7 restructuring they would be better off today than they would be under their current situation, especially considering they owe the U.S. Treasury billions still, and the Treasury is sitting on millions of shares....
And there is no rule where I have to participate in a state with over burdening regulations. And California is that place.
This just sounds like a really good reason to put in a data field for state when signing up for an app, and exclude Californians from use of the app, and explain to them because over burdening regulations our App is not available in your state, please contact the California Attorney Generals office for more information regarding these regulations. While there a lot of people in California, sometimes it's best to just avoid states or places where your work is not appreciated.
So it's okay that it's not in your neighborhood, and you're okay it's in a less than desirable area? Sounds like the people that want wind energy, but they don't want them anywhere near their home...
The Patient Affordability Act would not save you from the debt you have... You'd still owe money to the hospital. We need insurance reform desperately, but The Patient Affordability Act is far from insurance reform..... The Patient Affordability Act does not limit medical debt, forgive medical debt, or even provide free cancer treatment. You still have to carry insurance, and you still have to carry part of the load. Plus if you had 400k in your savings you're one of the evil rich people that are supposed to pay their fair share according to the turds at OWS.
I would love to switch all of our boxes off XP, but the manufacturer of the equipment we sell and service seems to like writing their service software in VB. I have tried every single configuration and software option with the windows 7 machine we have and it will not work, so for our three service benches we need XP machines for the foreseeable future. I work in the Ag industry where IT is still the lowest man on the totem pole.
New submitter GregLaden writes "The object known as the Galileo Thermometer is a vertical glass tube filled with a liquid in which are suspended a number of weighted glass balls. As the temperature of the liquid changes, so does the density. Since each glass ball is set to float at equilibrium in a sightly different density of the liquid, as the temperature increases, each glass ball sinks to the bottom. It turns out that this thermometer was actually invented by a team of instrument inventors that formed a scientific society who had the impressive motto 'Probando e Reprobando,' which in English means 'testing and retesting.' The Accademia del Cimento operated under the leadership of the Grand Duke Ferdinand II from 1657-1667 in Florence, Italy. According to Peter Loyson, who has written a corrective article for the Journal of Chemical Education, Galileo did invent a temperature measuring device called a thermoscope."
Misinformed? You can think what you want, but when I was a child and they gave me the MMR vaccine I was hospitalized, and in the ICU, this was repeated three times with other vaccines because some idiot doctor in the Air Force insisted I was faking it. My child had the same reaction after her MMR vaccine, so there is no misinformed, no ignorance on my part. Not everyone can take vaccines, and to call me an idiot is ignorant and quite honestly just being a dick. I don't oppose vaccines, but I can't take them.
Wtf I'm an idiot because so called medicines have repeatedly almost killed me?and have hospitalized my child?
Some people actually cannot take vaccinations, there is not a vaccination on this planet that does not make me ill, and my daughter ill. So guess what we're not vaccinated, we're still alive, and both of us survived chicken pox, mumps, and measles. This societal belief that a shot or a pill will fix the world is slowly going to turn around and bite everyone in the ass. And this persons Constitutional rights were not just violated, but trampled all over. Who cares if you believe in a conspiracy theory that Barney the purple dinosaur and friends were involved in the 9/11 tragedy. We have rights guaranteeing such idiocy.
How many people have groaned, complained and had nuke, wind and hydro station plans shut down? Then we've got MidAmerican in Iowa attempting to pass on the risk of potentially building a nuclear plant on rate payers, instead of the business by charging surcharges for the building of a nuclear plant that the company may or may not build. So many people cry not in my backyard, we're shutting down coal capacity every year, and electricity rates can do nothing but go up, but we want to rely on electricity to move our society, there is something with that picture.
So, you want to fly a plane that is green, and you want to power it from electricity?! WTF is wrong with people, burning one fossil fuel instead of another is not green.... The majority of America and the world's electricity comes from the burning of fossil fuels, the difference is the energy comes across miles of wire instead of the combustion engines we currently use. Electric vehicles are not more green than combustion engines, the pollution is just offset to a different location instead of your tailpipe...
damn straight they'll kill it, kicking back money to GM is dumb, all tax incentives need to be shut down. If the market can't support it why should those of us who actually pay taxes pay for it.
It's a breath of fresh air, until all the electric plants burning coal have to ramp up production of electricity to meet the demand of all these tailpipe diversion cars.
