Has this asshole ever read the 1st amendment???
Even if the wife has a full time job, she still has to do the majority of the work at home.
I remember when I first read about these issues, 30 years ago, one of the surveys claiming that women did the majority of work at home, counted exterior house maintenance, yard maintenance, and car maintenance as mens' hobbies instead of work at thome.
risk usually means stupidity
Bullshit. Many risks are based in stupidity. Many are not.
Are there Macs that can run Snow Leopard but cannot run Lion?
Yes. Not many, but there are some.
And there are some that can run Lion but not Mountain Lion.
There are none that can run Mountain Lion but cannot run Mavericks.
One could also mention the blatantly racist methods used to promote prohibition of both cannabis and cocaine. But like Nixon's control-freak hatred, that was a means to an end. The lobbyists I mentioned wield the real power in Washington and decide what becomes or remains the law of the land.
Well, we're really talking about a long time span. The blatantly racist methods were used to initially ban marijuana, and were clearly carried out by legislators who had been bought and paid for by the lobbyists. But I don't think the promotion to Schedule 1, about 40 years later IIRC, was pushed by any lobbyists--it was a pure executive branch thing, and based on the flimsiest of pretend science.
That's the only reason why.
No it's not; you're forgetting Richard Nixon's white-hot hatred of hippies
Both heroin and cocaine were originally developed as medicine. Turns out that their potential for misuse far, far outweighs any medical benefit.
And yet they both are still used in medicine (http://www.medicinenet.com/cocaine_hydrochloride-topical/article.htm). While marijuana is classified by the US feds as having no medical use. Go figure.
...Docked Columbia at the ISS...
No, they could not have. Columbia was in a very different orbit than ISS, and had nowhere near enough fuel to get there.
That might be related to the price tag of a Model S being about triple that of the Prius, but hey, you get what you pay for.
Just a note to add some color: lightly-used Model S cars sell for about 30% more than new ones, because the waiting list for new ones is so long...
Which is, in itself, a beautiful thing. Back when Steve Jobs first hired him, it was big news in the business rags, about the first openly gay CxO of a Fortune Whatever corporation. Nowadays, nobody talks about it, because almost nobody cares, and lots of younger folks don't even know it. Which is exactly as it should be.
"Throttling" is not the same as "blocking", therefore a ban on "blocking" is not the same thing as a ban on "throttling".
Good luck with web apps that use IP based sessions.
Are you kidding me??? That stopped being even remote practical about 20 years ago.
You forgot the bizarre discredited economic theories as well.
I suppose. I was already well on my way to deciding to vote for Obama for the second time, when Romney sealed the deal by announcing that he would revoke the extremely limited financial regulations Obama had managed to pass after the financial crisis. Because, economically speaking, that was the most spectacularly stupid thing I could recall any candidate ever saying--after that moment I didn't pay any attention to anything Romney said (or Obama, either for that matter). But I'm not sure most people pay attention to that kind of wonky detail, when there's the lurid crap with comparing gay marriage to bestiality and claims that "legitimate rape" does not lead to pregnancy--which claim, fascinatingly, has its basis in Nazi "medical" experiments, so is it an instance of Godwin's law when one side of an argument is ACTUALLY espousing Nazi ideology???
They keep babbling about needing to do a better job of getting their message out, and using technology like Obama did to spread their message. Well, bullshit, we heard their message and said "no". No to bigotry against gays, no to the notion that a single cell can be a human being with a soul and consciousness, no to pushing the lie they call "creation science" into the classroom, no to lying to rape victims about the mechanism by which emergency contraception prevents pregnancy, no to all the anti-intellectual garbage that springs from twisted wacko interpretations of the old testament.
But I guess they're not hearing what the voters said, and so it's going to take them using technology better, and suffering another spectacular loss, to start accepting the idea that the problem is the message, not lack of effectiveness in communicating it.
Sigh. You see, I really would like a president who understands the limits of the ability of the government to fix all problems with massive spending, and the negative side effects of massive new spending, and who would strike (in my opinion obviously) a better balance. But as long as the republicans keep nominating candidates who toe the anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-intellectual line drawn by the party hard-liners, I will keep voting for the democrats.
I gave Slashdot Beta a try, because I thought it deserved a chance. Perhaps all the hate for it was just small-minded traditionalists clinging on to the familiar.
Yeah, same here. I figured it was just some brittle whiners exaggerating things they didn't like. Then I tried it. Holy fuck, what a pile of shit!
