One centralized location PER STATE. Of course, you'd actually have to read more than a paragraph of bad summary to figure that out.
What? You think that money put in the bank doesn't just go in a vault and sit there collecting dust. Do you really think that rich people invest their money in ways that provide capital in order to grease the wheels of the economy in the same way that spending money does? I don't get it, sounds too complicated so I'll just go on believing that spending is the only thing that matters.
So are you planning on at least just stopping talking about climate change?
Why do I only ever hear this asked of certain non-climate-experts? It seems there's a correlation between opinions on climate change and worthiness to discuss the topic. For example, Tim Flannery is a biologist and Bill Nye is a mechanical engineer yet I never hear people ask them to stop talking about climate because of their lack of expertise.
You don't need to answer, it's a rhetorical question, I already know the answer.
yet broad public support is needed
I believe you're begging the question there.
What are you talking about, NetWare isn't even remotely related to Unix.
They did a port to the Motorola 68000 series, but that didn't go anywhere.
How many loaded guns got through security before the TSA?
I guess since a broken clock is right 2 times a day we can all drop the "it doesn't work" mantra.
He didn't say that he believed invisible pink unicorns don't exist. He said that believing in invisible pink unicorns was foolish.
It appears that your "believe in existence" column is a boolean with NOT NULL. You think people can only believe something exists or believe that it doesn't exist. Atheists allow NULL in this column, so we can say, "I neither believe that it exists nor believe that it doesn't exist, I have a lack of belief either way".
Now, if the column is actually numerical column representing a probability of the thing existing, then we might be able to discuss different values.
I see the argument as one over the regulatory framework that would be needed to separate porn from non-porn. There are too many gray areas and it's too open to abuse. Whatever ills may be caused by porn, the cure is worse than the disease.
“Let’s stop spending money we don’t have to kill people we don’t know for reasons we don’t understand.” -- Teller
We need to promote the exchange of goods and tax it as little as possible. What needs to be taxed more is hoarding of wealth.
Hardly any wealth is hoarded, most of it is invested which is something that an economy needs at least as much as the exchange of goods, if not more so. Without people keeping money in banks so that banks can loan money to businesses there aren't going to be many goods to exchange in the first place. That's the "capital" part of capitalism.
Nobody keeps money unused in their mattress.
That means someone in a cabin that is a 10 mile boat-ride - the post office does this sort of stuff.
No they don't. You don't have to be too far off the beaten track to require that your mail be picked up at the post office. You haven't lived in a rural area before, have you?
I can't speak for aaronfaby, but I think that the argument is that "too big to fail" really means "has too much influence with politicians to be allowed to fail" and that those dire predictions are all smoke and mirrors.
However I'm not sure I would draw a parallel between The Federalist Papers and the drivel many current anonymous posters write.
That's only because the barrier to entry has dropped so low. There are many pamphlets from the same era which have been lost to history because they were drivel. There would have also been some real gems that never got out there because costs prevented them from being published.
I think the point that Lanier is really missing is that anonymity is not new, just that pen and ink is now nearly free.
The first quote would seem to put the lie to the statement that "He has been consistently correct about the financial crisis" unless you're arguing that he was correct in arguing in favor of it.
