WaPo still employs Mark Theissen as a "thoughtful (in print) opinion writer". The proverbial salesman for "enhanced interrogations". This is printed under the masthead. Really?

Can I get this as a Tin Foil Cod Piece (+5 ELF Shield)? Makes a great pair with my current Tin Foil Hat. Many thanks.
The executives power to delay implementation rests in the interpretation of the Administrative Procedure Act (1946).
So the ACA can be delayed through APA. I recognize "agencies" tasked with implementing law creates an extra-Governmental body that bleeds into both the legislative and executive branches, which is problematic.
Question: When you say "roughly" as functional as an iPad email app, are you considering that the Surface RT still doesn't support POP3? Can you let us know if that has been fixed yet?
The USPS is one of the largest employers of African Americans and Veterans - both groups that have already suffered disproportionately during our endless [world] war(s) and Great Recession.
One of the best I've seen was a Jersey plate:
Stay classy New Jersey.
The Surface Pro isn't competing with the iPad. At it's likely price point, you're talking Ultraportables, Notebooks, and the Mac Air.
The estimates for Samsung and HTC were royalties of 8-15USD per phone paid to Microsoft. That's quite a bit of cash. Some have claimed that Microsoft is making more off Android phone sales than their own Win7 mobile sales.
A friend of mine and I were at the 9:30 Club in DC circa... July 2006 to see Cracker play. The opening acts finish up and here comes this tall, lanky, scruffy-looking dude who is laying down cable and taping up mics. He's setting up guitars and stuff, roadie jobs. I turn to my friend between sips of beer and say, "You know, that's David Lowrey." At the 9:30 Club you're about 10 feet from the stage once up front, max. We've got a clear view of this guy and sure enough, it's David Lowrey, roadie.
As you'll read in the article, David Lowrey is a math grad. If he's calculated that his band can't pay a roadie to do set-up, then you know they're making next to nothing for these shows. I'm not saying he's supposed to have a designated cape handler like James Brown, but a roadie - sure.
Point is - I'm not sure they were making anything off this show. He was his band's roadie, and they drove Johnny Hickman's microbus to the show from Richmond. This was a harbinger of things to come.
Great idea. Now where were you when Bush Co. went to war in Iraq and decided to lose about 1.5 trillion dollars? 10 billion dollars in cash was stolen off pallets in Iraq. Gone, vanished. No one has any idea where it went. That's just one example. Routinely every years the Pentagon comes out and tells us 40 billion in military spending is completely unaccounted for. The money has been flushed down into a Military Industrial Complex sewer and is gone. For good.
So Obama Co. tries to prop up a green company as he tries to ignite a new driver for the economy. The company fails and goes bankrupt.
Which scenario do you prefer? Losing 20x as much overseas, and likely funding/fueling/creating terrorism, or losing 1/20th to an American company?
Big Oil doesn't pay taxes either. Please.
I'd say RTFA, but apparently people don't even read the summaries before playing "let's jump to conclusions":
From the SUMMARY:
"with a molten salt system to store power as heat for times when the sun isn't shining"
And really, nuclear power? Good luck getting the regulatory approval for that. The hoops and hurdles for nuclear are profound. The AP1000 by Westinghouse is attached to six applications before the NRC (12 AP1000 reactors in all). The AP1000 design has been under review since... 2007. Four years later they are still reviewing the design because of "additional technical issues." There is a reason an American nuclear reactor hasn't been built in this country in 30 years. It's called regulatory bottleneck.
People making below your decent wage pay more proportionally than the rich do for FICA. It's a regressive tax that draws more from the middle class and poor on a percentage basis.
Also, if Warren Buffett is scratching his head over why his tax rate was lower than that of his secretary, then something is wrong with the system. That shouldn't happen.
The folding tablet with two screens has an inherent flaw - it's two screens. Driving that video is going to put a ton of pressure on the battery, and the useful battery life for the Courier would likely be a disaster. They could segment the two screens (one LCD, one OLED), but at that point you're adding more to the bottom line cost.
The Courier was great smelling vapor, but that's it. They only released the mock-ups in an attempt to distract from the gathering thunder of the iPad.
Sorry, that doesn't follow. We are not talking about Pelosi. Obama met with Republicans, and their stage prop reams of paper, at the Blair House. It was an open conversation; it was inclusive. The Republicans didn't care to debate the bill on the merits, they merely wanted the optics of astroturfed outraged to campaign on.
As near as I can tell the bill was posted on opencongress.org in July of '09. You could have read it then.
