We need to calm down a bit on this whole Human Rights issue.
“It’s absurd that in a 21st-century New York, we would go back and vote on machines first used in the 19th century when Tammany Hall controlled the elections,” said Dick Dadey, the executive director of Citizens Union. “The voter confusion that’s going to be caused is unfathomable.”
And when the option to keep your private stuff private is removed without your knowledge?
This doesn't make any sense. If all your private stuff is only in your head, then how is it "removed without your knowledge"? I think the point of the GP was that if you don't want others to know about something, then:
1. don't do it in public where others can see it
2. don't do it in private in front of a webcam
3. don't put it on the internet, (ie Dropbox, Facebook, Google, Apple)
I am sure there are others, but the point is, keep your private stuff to yourself and you have nothing to worry about.
People who are surprised that Google, Apple, Facebook and others share their personal data are funny. Don't give them your personal data in the first place and they will have nothing to share.
looking to the people who are and actually do study and understand climate science and asking them is wrong... how exactly?
Where did those scientists get the money for those supercomputers and their pay checks? What would happen to that money if they came out and said they were wrong? Both sides are creating this havoc for the money.
You raise the wage and you raise the cost to the company. If the company profits do not also raise to cover the extra cost then they have to make up the difference some other way. Since a company can not raise the cost of their services because of competition they have to cut costs. The biggest cost to any company is usually employees, so they end up firing a few employees to make up the cost difference. Now they are less effective and not able to compete because they have less workers and they lose revenue. Now the cycle continues.
Having an arbitrarily decided minimum wage is bad.
What is the end result of human evolution? (i.e. if humans continue to evolve for another million or more years what will we look like, what abilities will we have? Will we be powerful enough to create life in our own image? create a planet, galaxy, or universe of our own? manipulate matter with out minds? teleport? shed our physical bodies?)
I am interested in your thoughts on this and how it differs from Christians belief in a supreme being.
Leading Causes of Death
Also more people die from car accidents than from guns, should we also ban cars?
On average in 2009, 93 people were killed on the roadways of the U.S. each day.
