Problem is, there is absolutely no consistency. I can read a hard/paper back book but I can't read on my Kindle? How often do I need to hear about buckling my seat belt or putting on an oxygen mask in the event we lose cabin pressure? The only portion of the safety spiel I find important is the flight attendants making sure the people in the exit row are physically capable
From my understanding, it's not that the USPS is being required to put today's dollars into a pension plan, but tomorrow's, next weeks, and the dollars 5 years from now in as well. If I recall (correctly?), they are being required to make the next 20 years worth of funding within the next few years.
I think its more like your adviser telling you to put away 10% of every paycheck into a 401k account, but do the next 20 years worth of deposits all within the next 5
How is this modded insightful?
If it's too expensive for them to connect to the internet to update their anti-virus, it's too expensive for them to connect to the internet and contract malware. That's where the majority of it is coming from. I don't doubt expense might be part of the reason (running unlicensed/unpatched windows machines or trying to find free software that comes riddled with spyware) but I don't see the connection you are making being the primary reason...
Hey, numbnuts - How would the American government fund a war against Americans, if it caused us to stop paying taxes? Where do you think the U.S. Military's funding comes from, anyway? Magical unicorn farts?
Logistics - they ain't yer strong suit.
With debt? Something that our government is well acquainted with?
I'm for gun rights but it's pointless to cite these stories because you're 22 TIMES more likely to use a gun against someone you know. Throwing more guns into the mix will definitely stop crimes, but you're going to create FAR more inicidents than you stop.
[BEGIN NRA LOGIC] Well, the solution for this is even more guns! Every person should have at least three guns on them at all times. Every child over three should have a handgun also. Babies can use our new "shotgun pacifier." What? Now there's even more gun violence? Ok, let's try ten guns per adult, seven guns per child, and turning every baby stroller into an armored tank. That should keep us safe. [END NRA LOGIC]
Correlation does not indicate causation.
What's the statistics for murder without a gun with regard to people you know and strangers.
Drunk driving is not a "mistake". You chose to get drunk. You chose to drive. You know it's wrong. You know it's dangerous. You know you may kill someone. You choose to do it anyway. That's not a "mistake", that's wilful culpable recklessness.
"mistake: an error in action, calculation, opinion, or judgment caused by poor reasoning, carelessness, insufficient knowledge, etc."
Seems pretty cut and dry that drunk driving is a mistake.
