Huh????? Nixon was never impeached. The house never voted to impeach him. There was talk that he would be impeached but Nixon resigned before that happened.
The poster you're replying to never said that Nixon was impeached, they just vaguely said "the house passed articles". The US has a bicameral legislature. The House passing articles of impeachment isn't the same as impeachment because the Senate would need to vote as well. In any case the House Judiciary committee voted overwhelmingly in favor of the articles of impeachment against him, although the vote never went to the full House. So, technically part of the House voted on it, but not the full house, so you're technically correct in your second sentence. The part about "there was talk that he would be impeached" is a ridiculous understatement. The Judiciary committee vote happened _before_ the tapes were released. There was no way that Nixon was going to avoid being impeached if the vote had taken place.
Naturally,as is the tradition, most of the people under Nixon who were involved in the break in and cover up got to throw themselves on their swords and go to prison while Nixon got off scott free.
Sure sign that Slashdot isn't running enough space stories. The space nutter troll is posting in other stories now due to loss of his natural habitat.
Voting in the United States is, indeed, heavily broken. You should still vote. Just don't vote for a Democrat or Republican.
Hemp, or Cannabis, has many uses: ethanol or biodisel production (and can be further refined into a gasoline replacement), clothing, paper pulp, rope, hemcrete, insulation, it provides a hypoallergenic (making it better than soy!) vegan protein source, it can treat a host of health and mental issues (morning sickness, PMS, nausea, vomiting, migraines, chronic pain, epilepsy, glaucoma, crohn's disease, colitis, diabetes, anxiety, adhd, neuropathy, insomnia, depression, Multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's, can balance appetite, and is NON-ADDICTIVE, shows promise of being able to cure certain cancers and in combination with western medicine improves effectiveness of Hep C treatment), lubricants for machinery, heating fuel, fertilizer, cattle feed. Also, overdosing is nearly impossible - you would have to ingest many pounds of it to O.D., far more than anyone can fit into their stomach, or if you want to smoke it, you'd die of asphyxiation long before you O.D.
It is also not a gateway drug: there is a greater correlation between either nicotine or alcohol use and hard drugs than there is with cannabis.
Disclaimer: I have never so much as tried pot - I cannot even though it's legal in my state because of my career. I'd like try it myself to treat migraines, but I can't.
Also, if it were legal in my mom's state I'd love to buy some make a tincture for my her to help her with her pain so she can cut down her oxy use (she is on opiates because she is in severe chronic pain and is terminal).
When I pull up to an intersection on a 40+ mph street I start a mental countdown from 4 and estimate how far I'll travel in 3 seconds and if I'll end up past the white line I just keep going, otherwise I come to a stop. If I run the red it is because the yellow is shorter than legally required.
For 45mph the yellow light has to be at least 4 to 4.5 seconds. I have seen lights as little as 2 seconds in those zones. It's all about entrapment.
Even worse is there is this one intersection in MA which is often manually driven by an officer during rush hour. One thing I could count on: every time I drove my Corvettes through there this one cop would quickly change the light green-extremelybriefyellow-red, but when I would drive my truck through there I would get a greeeeeeeen-looooongyellowlight-red. She was consistent on this and I'd see her do it to other sportscar drivers too, so I started taking to calling in to her department and asking for the shift sergeant to complain about her, explaining that every time I'd see the fraction-of-a-second yellow when driving my Corvettes through there, but a long yellow light when driving my pickup. After a few calls he said he would send someone out to investigate. Since then I never saw her on that detail again, even though prior to that I'd see her on that detail most days, for months. Her replacement ran the light fairly and reasonably.
Given the opportunity to abuse power, be it a private corp operating a camera or a police officer directing traffic with a logbook handy, that little bit of power will be abused.
Part of this backlash has to do with the (always accurate) perception that RLCs are a moneymaking scheme, pure and simple.
FTFY. If it weren't true they a) would not ever shorten the yellow light but would rather lengthen it b) they would always post warnings c) would always turn the cameras off when it is snowing out because in icy conditions it is sometimes safer to run a red than to insist on stopping when the intersection is poorly cleaned and you start fishtailing on snow-over-ice even with traction control + abs just because you fear a ticket. Red light cameras are seldom if ever safety-motivated. It all comes down to the almighty dollar.
XP will be around for a very long time, just as NT 4.x was. Hell I still have a client running DOS apps. Oh he has a Windows replacement but he much prefers the older apps. XP hasn't been phased out in a lot of small business environments because because the perceived cost/benefit isn't advantageous enough, even though the reality is a bit different (how much does DDR and DDR2 RAM cost now? Hard drive failures require format/install/hours of installing updates/reinstall apps all to end up with the same slow system). NT4 still exists in some embedded systems (heidelberg printing presses for example; why replace a $2.5million printing press that still works, except for the embedded PC that died? One of my friends stockpiled DEC alpha motherboards (AT form factor!) for his ripping workstation and the embedded controller because Heidelberg's fix is either a new-old-stock motherboard for $15K or a whole new press for $2.5m to $2.8m). Same for OS/2 - OS/2 Warp was what, a 1995 release, and it was dominant in banking workstations, ATM and other kiosk solutions until very recently.
I do not see XP dying for a long time to come.
That is why I have to look both ways before going on green to avoid getting hit by runners. Where I live almost no one stops at stop signs anymore and most people drive right through right on red. Usually a few cars sneak through each red light at a busy intersection.
The major problem - one of the major problems, for there are several - one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem. - Douglas Adams
It is possible the same thing happened at Pearl Harbor. We will probably never know for sure what really happened prior to those events.
Are you suggesting that those countries are enemies of the United States?
There are tons of stateless actors (and not an insignificant number of nation-states) whom are clearly enemies of the United States that benefit from his disclosures of our SIGINT sources and methods. You obviously cherry picked the list to whitewash them away (and made some of it up, since the US doesn't spy on Britain) as though his disclosures of NSA's activities in friendly countries (that spy on us, FYI) are excusable.
Please, if the United States wanted him dead he'd already be dead. All it would take is some old-fashioned realpolitik. A phone call from BHO to Mr. Putin, with an offer to give up a few high-valued Russian agents presently rotting in American prisons, and Mr. Snowden would die in a horrible automobile accident shortly thereafter. It could be arranged behind the scenes with no loss of face for either side. A public transfer to the United States for trial would be a tougher sell, but likely achievable if BHO put enough on the table.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Whatever obligation he felt to leak NSA's domestic activities, he crossed the line when he leaked information about their overseas intelligence operations. He has compromised methods and sources, and the damage he has done to the American intelligence community is incalculable. NSA's activities outside of the United States raise no Constitutional questions. They aren't engaged in any actions that other nation-states (including those hostile to the United States) aren't doing. His activities are arguably "aid and comfort" to the enemies of the United States, and I would be sorely disappointed if my Government opts to forgive him these offenses in the misguided belief that he can be trusted to cooperate in containing the damage he has done and continues to do.
