Comment Re:That's stupid. (Score 1) 258

In Massachusetts the majority of roads outside urban areas are curvy and hilly 2 lane roads with low speed limits. The low speed and relative lack of cross traffic on these roads makes a fatal collision much less likely. Compare to SC which has a flat grid. Straight roads with frequent 4 way intersections are much more dangerous.

Comment Good driving (Score 1) 186

Taking into account more of the available information, just not the car directly in front is just simply good driving whether it's a human or an AI vehicle. Happy to see this working in practice at least this time on a Tesla. One of the reason I hate riding with most drivers is that it seems very common to give driving only a minimal amount of attention and focus.

Seems like a question that is varies greatly by region. Northern New England, especially Vermont, is home to liberals who are gun owners and right supporters but to a lesser degree than the GOP and NRA. I think one of the biggest factors is we don't use guns for shooting each other much, so the level of anger and fear is much lower than it is elsewhere.

Comment Partisan opinions (Score 2) 361

It appears that most of the comments here are coming from people who are heavily invested in one political party or another. If your answer is yes, because Hillary is corrupt or no because Trump is so bad, you are missing the important part of the question.
It's not ideal to have a foreign power or other non-altruistic entity manipulating media for political purposes. There's nothing stopping such a group from cherry picking which "truths" to publish in order to further an agenda. The timing of these releases, which appear to be attempting maximum impact, and our inability to view the entire source material supports those fears and in my view implicate wikileaks as a partisan entity rather than an altruistic whistleblower tool.

Comment Re:Bash Trump (Score 1) 399

There is no such thing as "real" Trump discourse. Everything about him and his candidacy and is so called platforms is complete BS. You can claim to take the high road, but failing to be able to determine which is the worse between these two reflects puts you in the very far gone side of the political spectrum.

What would you expect those people to do? Do you think that Trump and Clinton are equally bad? Personally I think Trump is far and away the worst "politician" to emerge in my lifetime by far. Clinton is middle of the pack at worst. It astounds me how many people treat them like they're similar or god forbid think that Trump is acceptable in any way shape or form.

I don't think he's a Hillary plant. I think he's exactly what he appears to be. A very low substance narcissist. It explains why he's been unable to take his undeserved success and parlay it to the general election numbers. It would have taken some extreme foresight to plan this out and expect him to secure the GOP nomination on his fact-free platform.
