Indeed: it's completely stupid that the Republicans and Democrats disagree on domestic oil production. Democrats think we should keep our oil in the ground for ecological reasons; Republicans should think we should keep our oil in the ground for national security & long-term economic reasons.
Only short-sighted idiots think we should "drill, baby, drill" for short-term economic gain.
And they never have the ability to shoot anyone who isn't actively killing people?
Police never have the AUTHORITY to shoot anyone who isn't actively attempting to kill people. That's the important issue here: authority, not "ability." Without authority, the use of force is criminal.
The second is simply false, because the authorities can shoot lots of people who aren't currently actively attacking anyone. You'll note that Federal troops...
Are you really too stupid to know the difference between police and the military?
Now we've got many fewer enemies, and the process for finding them is much more complicated because they don't all wear the same shirt, but that just means that there's a lot of internal process the Executive branch has to go through before OKing the target.
The government also has to abide by the Geneva Conventions. Either the target is an enemy soldier and the Geneva Conventions apply, or he is not a soldier and US criminal law (including the 5th Amendment) applies. There is no other category. Obama (and GW Bush before him) might have claimed there was, but both of them are war criminals.
The only question is -- are you the offshore worker, or is the team in Scotland the offshore workers?
The team in Scotland is the offshore part. 90% of the company's employees, including upper management, are in the US, and the company's product is medical billing software that only makes sense in the context of the US health insurance system.
Meanwhile, I can legally put in a path 10' wide and infinitely long, and pave it with wood.
That almost sounds halfway reasonable: a wood-paved path would avoid ground compaction by distributing the weight (while not being an impervious surface, unlike a concrete path).
What's unreasonable is that the county particularly cares how compacted your backyard is in the first place (unless it's so excessive that you're causing runoff issues for your neighbors).
One of two possibilities:
1) The FAA does not understand the difference between a drone (which does not require visual contact with the operator to be flown) and a toy airplane (which cannot be controlled out of sight of its operator).
2) The FAA is trying to consolidate more power to government by conveniently misinterpreting the rules to give them the ability to ensnare model airplane owners in a tangled web of onerous regulation and raise more money.
My vote is on #2.
But that doesn't mean it necessarily will be offshored. The company I work for is headquartered in Atlanta, but has a small satellite office in Scotland (because the CEO grew up there and wants to provide jobs in his hometown). I'm on the same scrum team as one of the guys over there and therefore work closely with him without any problems (all our meetings are during morning our time, afternoon his time).
Ironically, I'm not allowed to telecommute except in exceptional circumstances...
Hey, am I the only one seeing a pattern here?
Nah, if there were a pattern then the next thing would be some fascist from Europe annexing his neighboring countries.
"Bad Trip" is used to describe any situation where a person has an emotional experience that they are having trouble handling.
There's another definition- any situation where a person has such reduced cognitive ability that their actions preclude survival. The stereotype is the guy who thinks he is superman and tries to stop the locomotive, but other similar situations exist.
First *concentration* was 1938.
Morning glories did not evolve overnight in 1938, nor apricot seeds, nor any of the other plants this drug can be concentrated from.
Exactly what I was thinking. I've known too many suicides in my life on bad trips, from the "I can fly off a 20 story building" to the "I'm superman and I can stop a train" to not know that LSD affects the instinct for survival.
Wow, mod parent up.
The only other advice I have to give, is check out the free tools that surround the areas you are interested in. Expanding closed source software is still a money pit, and perhaps always will be.
So are some of these vaccines. In fact, for some of the weakened-virus instead of killed-virus variety, some of these vaccines *are* the disease they are hoping to prevent.
What are the real risks of vaccines? Incredibly hard to tell when even the CDC uses weasel words like "risk of death is extremely small" instead of giving us a percentage from the study- and the original white papers are always paywalled and copyrighted. You can't calculate risk without knowing actual numbers.
It is amazing the number of "gay cradle Catholic atheists" I meet who were trained by Jesuits during the worst of the clergy abuse years.
This is why it is vitally important to have *TWO* wills for any piece of electronic equipment, the open one and the sealed one. The sealed one contains the passwords.
