Comment Re:Obama has no right to do this (Score 1) 331

I am so Partisan, I am a Libertarian!

Yes, I haven't voted for either (R) or (D) in 30 years ... partisan. Yes, there is plenty of hypocrisy, and the Ds are worse that the Rs on Election Hypocrisy but they both are hypocritical.

Who was caught doing what?

Ok so now, there is no evidence of any hacking, I thought that was what Obama was looking for. Is he on a wild goose chase or is that some sort of partisan response to an election that will basically undo his whole "legacy?

Not sure what you're point is, other than to assume I am something I am not.

I find it hilarious that you think that "vote fraud" and "hacking" are some how not the same in regards to corrupting the outcome of an election. Does it matter if electing staffers are stuffing ballots https://www.youtube.com/watch?... or using electronic means to do so?

Vote Fraud it Vote Fraud. It is either "mythical" or it is real. There is plenty of hypocrisy by both (R) and (D) here. Its just that the Hypocrsy of the (D) is really clear this time. You're just pissed that they were caught.

"Ousted"could mean "lame duck" and with just over one month to go, he's really lame duck. The Obama legacy is going to be pretty staggering. Double the (unpatriotic) debt. That's it. ObamaCare will be repealed, the court will not reflect his presidency, all those "Pen and Phone" executive orders rescinded ...

He's just pissed that "elections have consequences"

I am a libertarian.

While you are correct, some conservatives game the system with government. And you are correct, everyone will game the system. Draw a line, and everyone dances all around that line. The line is arbitrary and means nothing, but we pretend it is some sort of sacred place.

he has ever right to order such a review.

Before you state something as a fact, you might want to check to see if it is so. A "Right" isn't the correct term, even if it was the correct term, it would require some sort of previous example or court case to outline, neither of which has happened here.

Further this is 100% contrary to what Obama said here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

Funny how something "mythical" became "real" simply because the Democrats lost an election.

Remember back in the late nineties, when people (mostly stupid liberals) convinced Congress and Clinton to pass a "Luxury Tax" on things like ... yachts? Remember what happened to all those industries that were building those things? Do you remember the fanfare when they repealed that tax?

Yeah, nobody remembers shit like that.

As someone who is in charge of printer services, and google cloud print and such for 15000 users, I can assure you that my goal is to be "Paper Less" as fast as possible. It is an ongoing goal, and hence it isn't "paperless". There are times people still need hard copies, but getting people to print less has to be a sustained effort to educate people on alternatives.

That being said, most teachers still want hard copy versions of student work, because it is faster and easier to grade 30 assignments on paper than it is to do so on digital, but only if you ignore having to haul those papers around to and from schools, passing the assignments out, collecting them, and giving back the graded versions etc etc.

It is all about perception, they don't count certain aspects against their "grading" time, because of the disconnect between managing the assignments and grading them.

Comment Re:Depends on price (Score 1) 327

I actually saw something on this about a year or so ago, where a movie gave a DVD or Digital Download of the movie you were seeing as part of the ticket, and sold the tickets at a slight premium over normal. From what I recall, it worked very well, and ended up making the movie theater much better profits than Theater and expected DVD/Digital sales of similar movies.

The whole point is that it was quickly shot down because it still wasn't "enough" money. They want Piracy. They need it to justify screwing their existing customers.
