or you tell them and they totally ignore it, either because they cant be bothered to change the way they do things or because they didnt read it in their daily barrage of emails.

*sigh* the same old free as in beer vs free as in speech argument again...
10 paces, turn, and launch your operating system?
those telephone poles are on somebodys land. and if its under a public road, that means its essentially govt property and they gave them the right to run it there. note that i dont agree with that - most cable/fiber/buried copper ive seen has run at or near the edge of a private property line, covered by a public utility easement that most property owners are forced to comply with.
>Live and let live if they aren't harassing me.
this particular discussion is about exactly that.
claiming your political opponent is a child molester is a great way to get a libel or slander suit, depending on how you do it. demanding to know why your opponent wont deny being a child molester, on the other hand...
i dunno, baconless bacon double cheeseburger doesnt look shorter to me.
Thats what TFA is about. Minority representation in local elections.
in some states getting an absentee ballot requires demonstrating actual inability to get to the polling place. examples include disability, lack of transportation, etc. so that its not just a preference, rather only for those who have no other option.
so its fair to punish the candidate that actually gets 51% of eligible voters to vote for them, simply because they are the wrong color?
i would note that im also a strong supporter of not having a single polling day and allowing for anyone who wants an absentee ballot to have one. this will eliminate the 'oh but its so difficult for people to make it to the polling place when they work 3 jobs' whining.
In other words, "fair representation" means non-whites lording it over white people.
So, you believe it's right that 51% of the people can have 100% of the representation.
If the other 49% cant be bothered to go in and vote, yes absolutely.
There are several commonly cited causes for the lack of minority participation in the voting process and having representation in elected office, most of which lead to a lack of representation in the actually vote itself.
i see no problem with that.
and in the process, its likely that the actual scientists will be harmed as well. if it werent for that, id say have at it.
