At least they weren't gzipped.
And the farmer cares about his pigs so he doesn't butcher them until they get nice and fat.
Honey, don't log on. That copy of To Serve Man just arrived. It's a cookbook!
States Rights has always been nothing more than a tool used by people who want something. Usually what they want is to take something from other people. They would just as easily use religion, economics, erroneous statistics, philosophy, or any other intellectual tool they could find.
IMHO, ultimately states don't have rights any more than corporations do. PEOPLE have rights. The PEOPLE should have the right to freely associate and provide broadband. If they want to do that through their city government, fine. There's no need to appeal to "states rights" which has quite a checkered past.
Even the District of Columbia DMV was pretty good, and DC is not known for efficiency. When I got rid of my car, it didn't take very long to hand the plate to the guy, who marked it invalid. That was that. Comcast? I got charged after disconnecting, and the dispute is unresolved after two months.
In other words, "disconnecting" from the DC DMV was easier than disconnecting from Comcast.
Except it wan't actual broken or horrible. That's what an anti science politician keeps saying.
Why do you think it doesn't take science to do weapons research?
Which is exactly what it does. It informs. Just right now the people being informed don't like what the science shows, so they claim science is not being 'fair'.
The scientific community is under attack by the pubs.
When to argue against solid scientific facts, yes, they are being anti-science, regardless of their degree.
I've never heard anything more wrong the a scientist speaking outside their expertise.
Why don't you talking about the other non profit radios station, you know the ones the are more numeroius then NPR? of, right they're religious and play to you neo-con idiocy.
"And while the incurious and stupid might be confused by such accounting gimmickry... I am not."
oh, you can't be wrong, there for everyone else is stupid.
Psychopathy at its finest.
This administration has never tried to kill fracking.
You are a fucking liar.
"The EPA and similar organizations have been trying to stop and forbid fracking for years."
"The DoE was used as a tool to hurt people."
It's a political fight becasue the pubs made it one. The DoE funding wasn't political.
You should actual learn history and mission of the DoE, you fucking limp wristed cum stain.
The things being "destroyed"(they aren't) are heavy polluters who are making the world less habitable for humans.
Why don't you go on about how the coal gets money and that's destroying green jobs? oh, right, becasue you a fucking tool, sparky.
3 million green jobs right now, and growing.
"This is the recurring problem with the left. They promise everyone a world of rainbows and unicorn cheeseburgers. But when push comes to shove... you fail. You don't deliver. All your promises don't come out... the reality checks bounce... and then what happens? People like me are stuck in some disintegrating city eating gruel and standing in line to get government rations."
"The US coal industry is on the brink of collapse.
I wish! Sadly, they aren't.
"f where you're going to get energy from now that you've shut down the nuclear power plants"
Who wants to shut down Nuclear plants? Not me. I want to see thorium plants and generate electriscity form burning our current high yield 'waste'.
Anyway, we would get all are energy needs from a 100 mile to a side solar furnace plant.
We could start that right now. Doesn't even need to be all at once, we could roll out out a 20 year plan.
Sylindra went under what the Chinese flooded the market with solar panels sold under their cost.
You are so stupid that your whole premise seem to be based that we just shut one thing off and then start the next. I understand it can be hard for simpletons like you to do more then one thing at a time, but for actually thinking adults, it's not really that hard.
Look at that a bunch of lies from a jack ass who clearly has no clue what he is talking about.
You're nothing but a Fox news fluffer.
You aren't follow the point where he doesn't actually know what he is talking about and just rattling off talking point he was spoon fed from his echo chamber.
And? a company failed. So what? happens all the time. In this case they failed becasue china flooded the market with solar panels they where selling below cost in order to stop american business's.
