It's hard to blame them. It was deeply irresponsible of the CIA.
Code Monkey destroyed, the software
Code Monkey should have got a job
Where he could be a loser without affecting me
But Code Monkey didn't
Code Money kept showing up to work
Too much of a pussy to design the product right
He sits back and writes a stupid song
And lets the project become consumed with blight
So you're expecting an outbreak of smallpox any day now then, as soon as the population density hits a certain point?
Did I say that? I didn't say that.
Methinks thou hast missed the point.
Hm. Intelligent and well reasoned.
I was not expecting that. Great response, yo.
Ha, knew that one would get y'all riled up.
Let the Hunger, er, Slashdot Games Begin! Choose your weapons of fallacious logic!
So what of people whose devout religious beliefs are non-congregational?
How, pray tell, will you apply that condition to anything outside software?
" my own rule about if 'statements considered harmful' is based on this rule."
This statement makes it blatantly clear that, at the very least, you don't understand what you are saying. And whatever rule you heard in math, it wasn't this one, as this one quite explicitly pertains to software engineering. EPIC FAIL.
It's got what plants crave!
Just tell them that the vaccine is... gluten free.
Is it really, or is that snark? I mean, I know you're making fun of treehuggers, but "gluten free" is a legitimate health concern for a lot of people.
Point fingers at "anti-vaxxers" all you want, that's not the root of the issue (not to say that it's not an issue). So long as we keep cramming more and more humans into smaller and smaller areas, we're just begging for a pandemic to come through and wipe out a fair amount of the population.
Think about new "super-diseases" like MRSA, or H041 Gonorrhea, which some experts are saying is a worse STD than AIDS.
No vaccination is going to save you from disease-related death if you're all crammed together like cattle in a slaughter shoot.
- free vaccinations
That could work
- no insurance coverage for treatment if you are not vaccinated
Insurance companies would love that, but I'm pretty sure it would violate the ACA
- fines for not vaccinating your children
That leaves stupidity as the only reason not to get vaccinated./p>
Stupidity, ignorance, religious preference (which I know a lot of people 'round these parts will lump in with stupidity), lack of access, distrust of the government, distrust of doctors, etc.
Just because you can only think of one reason doesn't mean it's the only reason.
there should be child abuse laws for not giving your child required medical care that kick in.
Look, bud, if you don't like living in a country that promotes and supports individual liberty, you're free to either try and amend the Constitution or expatriate. But don't be a self-righteous, dickhead fundamentalist who demands laws be passed to support your opinion by taking rights and freedoms away from other people. 'Cuz that's fucked.
You could also reverse it, i.e. a tax deduction for vaccination, in case the psychology works better that way.
That's your best bet - provides the right incentive, and is Constitutionally sound. The flat-taxers won't like it, but since when does anyone care what a flat-taxer thinks?
I have trouble understanding why the US dollar has value.
Because the government that issues it has the most powerful military force in human history, by almost-if-not an order of magnitude.
This isn't a political comment, I just really don't understand why everyone agrees that bits of paper have value.
Not everyone does, but when the guys insisting it has value have a few hundred predator drones, a few thousand Marines, and more ICMBs and satellite platforms than you can count pointed directly at your asshole, you tend to acquiesce, since the alternative option kinda sucks.
I heard something one time about this ancient concept known as the "gold standard," but I think that may just be legend.
Did you actually click the link? If anything the paid results are more obvious in my opinion. There's a bright yellow icon marking them out explicitly as "ADS" versus a light grey border labeled euphemistically "sponsored results". This is, at most, a step to the side, not a step backwards.
That's what I thought, too.
Heck, personally speaking I find the new ADS icon a lot easier to notice than the background-color-ever-so-slightly-different-than-the-non-ad-background-colors they used in the past.
Also, if you want to see an example of actual shady behavior regarding ads, go over to Yahoo.com and click the "News" link. about every third or fourth "article" in the feed is an advertisement, but apparently the marketing drones over there allow advertisers to make their ads look exactly like the other news feed items.
If I ever find myself charged with treason, I think I'll have bigger concerns than my choice of representation.
Like applying for asylum.
BTW, snide remarks don't really provide a counterpoint to my statements or reasoning.
