was that the rollout was rushed for political reasons. If it were slowed down then the republicans might have had more success killing it before implementation.
That might be "political" reasons, but it's also practical reasons. If you want to get certain things done, you have to race against competition trying to kill it.
For about 100 years various presidents and lawmaking groups have tried to enact a medical insurance program of some sort, only to see it smashed down. With that kind of record you know you have to move quickly and take some risk to slip through the narrow cracks of opportunity that present themselves.
Like it or hate it, ACA is a monumental political endeavor with equally monumental forces pushing against it. The horse has to be big and ride fast to get something like this through, and that probably means inadvertently stepping on and squashing stuff along the way.
When Biden was caught on mike saying, "This is a big fucking deal!", it was no exaggeration.
Time and material contracts basically means renting consultants by the hour, short of outright criminal behavior there's no promised time frames, deliverables or guarantees of functionality or quality. The upside is the lack of formalism, I've developed many reports on a T&M basis and basically if you want a filter here and a total there and to add one more column and add a traffic light here and a drill down there just say it and I'll keep working on it until you're happy. Heck, I've taken "requirements" from a single yellow post-it note, as long as the client is happy and the invoices get paid it's a win-win for everyone compared to bids and change orders.
The problem begins if you need anything other than yes-men because basically you're going to lead these people and point them to tasks that need doing and make sure it all comes together to a working solution. Consider it a bit like building a house where every contractor assumes that the rest of the work to bring it up to code will be done by somebody else, you tell the plumber to put a pipe here, the electrician a wire there and the carpenter to board up that wall and they do it, but they don't take any responsibility on whether it's done to code or the overall result. My guess is that Oracle have their asses well covered legally, but often they have to play the scapegoat when the client has been incompetent. Usually they don't want to throw eggs in the face of the manager who hired them, unless it becomes an even bigger PR problem not to.
This will lead to thousands of drug enforcement pilot jobs getting offshored to afghanistan where militants can remotely fly drug search drones around England for 100th of the price of a guy in a Cessna.
In addition, the populations of both countries are easily manipulated by telling them how glorious and special they are.
Can you please let me know which are the countries are where the populations are not easily manipulated by telling them how glorious and special they are? I may want to emigrate.

What do wing nut freedom blogs have to do with the facts of the case? Mr. Bundy, family, and staff forbade the carrying of firearms by the people on his property.
Eric Parker wants to lay on a public bridge on a public road and aim weapons at people, he should probably be arrested. He had nothing to do with Mr. Bundy's situation other than a misguided attempt to "help". He should not have been there, and he should not have taken up arms.
Please show evidence he was asked to be on that road by anyone actually involved in this measly $300,000 civil case. (Yes, $300,000. The $1M number bandied about by the "rule of law" whiners, is after exorbitant "penalties" that any business would make disappear upon settlement with a good lawyer.)
We have hundreds if not thousands of tax dodgers who owe far more than Mr. Bundy. Al Sharpton, comes to mind. $3.5M. He gets the highest "law enforcement" appointee (who illegally ran guns to murderers in Mexico by forcing law-abiding gun stores to sell them, I might add... great law enforcement there...) to speak at his conventions.
Can you find an IRS Top Ten Most Wanted list? I can't. Probably has something to do with who's on it, and which politicians they pay off. FBI Top Ten Most Wanted, no problem. IRS? Nope.
If you're so concerned about Mr. Bundy's back taxes, perhaps you should get an army to surround Al Sharpton's house with 200 rifle-carrying soldiers.
The "BLM Action" currently has an estimated cost of $2M to the U.S. taxpayer. Let's see... if I were asked if I wanted $2M spent to bother a rancher in the Nevada desert for a $330K bill... nope. Not worth it.
Someone else wants that land, and someone at BLM ordered up an Army. Interesting how we haven't heard who that was yet, isn't it? Who at BLM has the authority to assemble a standing army? I'd like to know.

welp, if you were paying attention, its a lot more than metadata, and something closer to a perverse total take of all information on all systems at all time by all people, world wide, with attempts to crack encryption, and automaticly analyse it.
... to legalize and regulate.
That is unlikely to happen in Britain. Politicians won't legalize it because there are too many special interest groups that want to keep the status quo of the endless "War on Drugs" and all the money that flows into it. In America, it has only been legalized in states with citizen referendums, so the politicians were bypassed.
It all depends on the school. My mother is a substitute teacher at a high school which doesn't take discipline very seriously. At one point she caught a kid with a paintball gun in the classroom and called it in to the office, conveniently leaving out the "paintball" part. Nothing happened for around 10 minutes until the office called back to get more information. Most kids get just a slap on the wrist if anything, so behavior at the school tends to be poor and the administration frowns on teachers who do use discipline because it inconveniences them. Back in the 1970s and 1980s it was a yearly tradition to stab a teacher every year at this school. Sadly this type of thing is coming back. Some of the lower grade schools in the city are just as bad and there are now a lot of problems with gangs.

Unfortunately, due to a clerical mix-up, the team that was supposed to sack the people that sacked the development team got sacked first and now no one can work out what to do about it.
They don't care if it's inefficient, they just tap into the neighbouring house's electricity meter, or tap into the line into the house directly.

From France to London in the mid 1940s - get a grip before trying to lecture others who are not entirely keyboard jockeys.
It is a perfectly valid question which needs to be asked to all world leaders. While Putin's answer can certainly be seen as pure political spin, the question itself is a legitimate and forceful question to be posed. And by asking it, it forced Putin to provide an answer through which he can be measured against.
Opinions of Snowden aside (I don't think he should be expected to dedicate his every action for the rest of his live to a privacy campaign just because he once blew a whistle), I think we can presume that the question was only asked because Putin and his aides wanted it to be. They had a prepared answer, information about Russia's eavesdropping is not in the public domain the way the west's is, and this let them thumb a nose at the US at a time when each is trying to portray the other as the bad guy over Ukraine.
Such veracity. Didn't you claim that Mr. Bundy had none? Pot. Kettle. Black. I see.
The development of anti-drone weapons is the next step. Small radar-guided missiles the size of a bottle rocket used to destroy "enemy" drones. Or "fighter" drones armed with heat-seeking missiles. It could add a new dimension to the phrase "too close for missiles, switching to guns".
Of course, as someone has already pointed out, legalizing pot is the best solution. Then the pot growers and the thieves can kill each other off.
I don't care who's egging it on. I've been listening to only interviews with the man and his family, themselves.
Those turning it into a 2A issue, are nut bags on both sides. Including you.
If anything it was a 1A issue... "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
And possibly a 3A issue... "No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law."
What "Hannity" or any other idiot turns it into is none of my concern as a Citizen. What is my concern as a Citizen is, is whether or not I find it appropriate for Federal armies to steal private property and show up in military dress and fully armed as a military to do so.
Since we're an Oligarchy and headed worse in that direction, my answer is no.
As for waste storage - any mention of it was seen as being some sort of traitorous move against the nuclear industry, which is why the Synroc I saw in 1987 didn't get the funding and approval to be properly tested until a couple of years ago. Waste storage has been so badly managed that there have been incidents such as one where some idiots put enough drums of high level waste together to get something similar to the Chicago atomic pile.

"They require hydroponic lights for the marijuana plants to grow"
What the fuck is a hydroponic light? Are we talking sonoluminescence or what? That's gotta be inefficient.
You mean an HID light, which produces tons of heat and is easy traceable from both ballast noise and heat.
Shoulda gone LED, suckers.
I expect judges to be adults. Not fussy children that are unworthy to wear the robes.
Our society is plagued with legions of children masquerading as adults. They are not adults just because they're 40 years old. Especially not when they go through their day whining and crying and throwing temper tantrums.
Part of being an adult is sublimating your base animal reactions and behaving in an age appropriate, dutiful, rational, and civilized manner.
End. Period. Point.
