Driving hybrid cars and increased fuel economy vehicles is more about saving the environment than not paying to support the roads you have to drive on. Both are needed.
Because it shifts the burden on maintaining our roads. I could use my gas vehicle 10 miles a year and have to pay much much more than someone who drives an electric 100000000000000000000 miles a year.
Washington DC would like to have a word with you.
Red herring. I didn't claim the States could or should leave the Union. I simply claimed that the Federal Government can't decide for them how much power they wish to delegate to their political subdivisions. You should familiarize yourself with the 10th Amendment and concept of enumerated powers
Strawman: He was not talking about succession, he was talking about states rights.
However you are still failing to look at the picture. The NC constitution is similar to to the US constitution int hat it gives power of taxation to the, or more important, the regulation of trade, to the local governments, so the situation is the same for how the US treats NC as how NC treats locals in this case.:
Except the NC constitution makes it not unitary, but at least semi-federalist
Look at it this way, can, or should, the state be able to override a county's ability to limit a cities property tax? If so then why should it be limited to the state, and why should the fed not do the same?
Smaller components does not necessarily mean simpler.
Then remove the requirement for them to have to service the midwest, and that they can service only the areas they want. That is not a problem with amtrak, that is a problem with congress.
Now you are moving the goal posts. You said subsidized.
also Airlines get free security, bailouts, and just general subsidies, without which they would not be able to stay in business and survive on its own.
Almost 1m people PER DAY is almost no one? Also what makes amtrak organisation idiots? Just because you dont like them?
Why dont you go pay for your own raods, schools, airplains and everything else? Because without the infrustructure our nation would not be as great as it is.
Say what? Airlines get massive subsidies and are in fact less efficient at their jobs than trains.
We know what caused the crash, we do not know what was responsible for the cause. The PTC, however, would have prevented the speed, therefore, the crash.
Also ineffective means it would not have done what it is supposed to do. If it would have prevented the crash as designed then it is effective. It may not be the best to prevent other types of incidents, and a tool may exist that could stop both types of incidents, but that does not make it ineffective at doing what it is designed to do.
Where does it mention the Larson B ice shelf in either of those? You do realize that it does not make up the entirety of the antarctic right?
And how exactly does that counter his post? It does not mention if the bee population is bouncing back in Europe, or not. I mean if you are going to call someone a moron atleast try to counter his arguments.
