No, really. Blame Obama. Who signs off on the budget?
And what do we think of the unbiased reporting here on Slashdot? 21% cut since 2010? That's after a $2.5 billion boost from the previous year, probably stimulus money. The budget is still higher than in 2009, and more than just inflation adjusted.
Each of the major credit reporting agencies must supply you a complete credit report annually upon request. Come on, this is not new.
Thanks to the federal reserve act of 1913, we couldn't return to your Civil War-era standard of living, Captain Hyperbole. But thanks for the diatribe, Mr. Marx.
Your misguided, fascist signature is all anyone needs to red before putting you on their foes list.

3. Government claims it has the solution to the problems it created, and the process repeats from step 1.
But nowadays, you're talking about investing a huge amount of time and energy and money [alanarnette.com] (probably $50k or more), not to mention the resources required to get there, the litter most hikers leave on the mountain [alanarnette.com] (including garbage, human waste, etc. which especially befouls the most popular -- and now frequently crowded -- routes), etc.
Not to mention the corpses. Slobs!
No. It was actually 60 fields per second interlaced, 30 frames per second-- and that was for the monochrome signal. Due to technological limitations, the color information was at 29.97 frames per second which means there had to be two frames dropped (off the timecode, not the content) every minute except on the tens (10, 20, 30, etc.) to keep in sync.
The 24 fps you are thinking of is for film.
If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.
