No credibility whatsoever. I've caught them in outright lies far too often.
Give me a break. This is all about climate change, something which has a solid scientific consensus. Conservative denial of this is just as bad as their desire to push Creationism and Intelligent Design into schools. These threatened researchers are not doing politically motivated work.
Face it, if these goons had their way they would be defunding anything that wasn't explicitly endorsed in the Bible.
NPR has been the whipping boy of conservative politicians for decades. They have been threatened with defunding many times. Because of this NPR has developed alternative sources of funds.
At present only about 10% of its revenues come from the Federal Government. NPR generally uses these attempts by Republicans to defund as a fund raising motivators.
I have heard some NPR employees say they wish the Feds would defund them. It would allow them more independence in their editorial content and would likely increase their income.
It's only been the last couple of years that NF has been doing processing on Saturday anyway, and they didn't increase pricing when they started doing it.
I'll miss it a little, but really it's not a big deal.
Really Comcast doesn't own that much in terms of content creators. 51% of NBC Universal, which is mostly a distribution network with Universal Studios bolted on. A few channels like SyFy generate content, but I could live without that.
Time Warner and Time Warner Cable are two separate entities. Murdoch is not getting TWC.
However Comcast + TWC is very evil.
TW is a giant media company owning all sorts of properties including CNN and HBO. Having Fox own these is also very evil.
If you are paranoid change the router MAC address on a regular basis.
Not in these countries it isn't. The value of the drug trade for some of these South and Central American countries exceeds their GDP by a factor of 2.
It won't be long before the 12 human beings to walk on the moon are dead. Already we are down 8. Soon there will be no living person who has walked on another world.
I wonder if time will show this period to be the high water mark of the human race. With all the existential threats facing us it could work out this way.
It's very unlikely that the different crime would be as rewarding financially.
The current situation results in huge flows of money into criminal organizations to the point where it destabilizes governments and funds massive corruption. Particularly in South and Central America.
One of the major items in the current news is the flood of children from central america into the US. What is the root cause of this? The flow of money from the US to drug cartels in their countries of origin.
Fix the drug problem in the United States and the flood of drug money to these criminals will dry up. It's very unlikely they will be able to find anything nearly as lucrative.
You have to take out the Zerg early. I think we are screwed.
This isn't an either - or. They are doing both.
Oct 2001 the Ukraine shot down an Air Siberia plane killing 78.
Basically check your flight plan. Some area you want to go around.
Exactly true. Market research shows people spend more if they are using a CC. Part of the psychology is of course that cash you are carrying around is generally a more limited asset than your CC balance limit.
There's like a hundred gazillion exoplanets in just our galaxy. This cries out for a numerical scheme like the star number from a USNO catalog plus a suffix.
Names are just wrong for this. There just aren't that many names.
