Horses are no fun to be on while around snakes either. You don't have to train them to avoid snakes. So horses would not have evolved to eat grass and have eyes on the side of their head without snakes?
property/not property... we don't need to go there.
Rights? Isn't this about the revocation of rights?
Or they think it's all about image.
I'm not in Colorado now but I was there in the 70's when they had the Big Thompson flood which oddly enough was the 'other' 100 year flood that took almost 150 lives not 4. They are starting to have quit a few 100 year floods
Mountains are neat to visit but if you don't respect them, they can take you out in many ways. It's not Disney world.
But the nature of the floods is much different than say the Mississippi or other areas away from the mountains. What happens is you get significant rainfall in a mountain valley that comes down the valley as a wall of liquid concrete taking out roads bridges, houses and anything else in the way with incredible force. Impressive and dangerous. But it passes in a couple days without more rain. The towns like Boulder, Colorado springs, Lyons and fort Collins just see high water levels for a short period of time. There is no drainage problem at 1 mile above the sea.
You are right but it's not worth it. Let us take our guns on the air ship and watch terrorist go away. An armed society shows respect to each other. An unarmed society shows fear of each other.

The technology is great stuff. The real valid reason Europe and others complain goes back to the laws around these innovations - it really is innovation not round corners on a dumbed down interface.
Lets say the innovation results in a 20% increase in production. A farmer producing crops by traditional technology becomes a cash loss as prices decline. A farmer producing with the new technology does not own the seed and perhaps the product as they sign contracts to work for monsanto. The IP owner dictates what the cash crop worker does, how much they are paid and if they get to be viable next year.
That's markets, right? more efficient things come and less efficient things go. The measure of success of the market is the price we pay for food.
So we move to a contract mentality and family farms go away. You get short term goals with no concern about the productivity of the land from one generation to the next. Land does not work that way. You can do a decades worth of damage very quickly.
But what stake does Monsanto have in this game? So total productivity drops 30% due to short term corporate farming practices. It applies to farms moving back to traditional technology as well and Monsanto has a 20% advantage. Small farmers go away. Monsanto wins. We lose.
I have no fear of eating GMO agricultural products other than the damage it does to our future.
OK. I read the wikipedia article on her. She has done some nice stuff representing women in business. But that's about as close as her background gets to geeks. From what I can see she's crunching customers and a path to a win in a sad virtual game I deleted years ago.
Do we have a track record on this one?
I've not got a strong opinion about Bloomberg but there is something wrong with the taxi business and its close relationship to retiring police cars. Other than some hardened suspension components, there is nothing about a police car that makes a good cab vehicle.
Am I misunderstanding a couple basic concepts here?
A person did nothing illegal but did expressed views some consider abnormal.
A person was detained for expressing what was considered abnormal views.

An AT&T spokeswoman said the fee covers "certain expenses, such as interconnection and cell-site rents and maintenance." The increased cost to consumers comes even though AT&T's growth in wireless revenue last year outpaced the costs to operate and support its wireless business. The company has talked of continuing to improve wireless profitability. Citigroup analyst Michael Rollins noted that the new administrative fee is a key component for accelerating revenue growth for the rest of the year. He said the fee should add 0.30 of a percentage point to AT&T's 2013 revenue growth; he predicts total top-line growth of about 1.5%.
Normally, consumers could vote with their wallets by taking their business elsewhere. AT&T would be required to let customers out of their contracts without an early termination fee if it raised prices, but it is avoiding this by simply calling the increase a "surcharge," effectively forcing millions of people to either pay more money per month or pay the ETF."

For instance, I suspect we waste more energy moving tap water in plastic bottles between cities.
Partnering with office was defensive. It wasn't going to make Microsoft money but it would prevent the killer doc application starting on Apple. Look at graphic editing for example in which softie didn't preempt competition well.
