Comment Re:Quit taxing EVs (Score 1) 235

Really? Only rich ppl drive cars?
Last time I was in Europe, I saw PLENTY of regular ppl driving cars.
However, unless you get those ICE off the road, nothing will change. And making public transportation free will NOT change things. The reason why they are not taken is that they are no convenient and were poorly designed.

Comment The company that rootkitted Windows from audio CDs (Score 4, Insightful) 55

So the company that put Windows rootkits on Redbook audio CDs puts backdoors in other products? Stunning!

The company that sold the PSP 1000 to early adopters at $250+ per unit based on all the things it would be able to do with expansions, then released expansions that only worked with later models doesn't take their customers' needs seriously? Shocking!

The company that advertised Linux on the PlayStation 3 then made it impossible to use Linux if you installed most of the newer PS/3 games stomps on their promises? Inconceivable!

Or... oh, wait... no, that's not it. The surprising part is that anybody trusts these shady jerks at all.

who says that they will do anything BUT that ?
Economics dictates that you run those plants for 50 years or more.
And considering that China continues to build up more new coal plants than they are putting in new AE (wind and solar and hydro COMBINED), it is pretty certain that China will not shut these down.

Comment Re:Silicon Valley able to cope with Trump regime? (Score 1) 184

visas are fine. Seriously. NO ISSUES with green cards.
The 2 big issues is the massive number of illegals living here (probably a lot closer to 30 million, not 12 million; last time, stats got it all wrong)
And then the huge misuse of H1Bs.

The solution is to add more visas for position based, as opposed to family based, while solving the illegals and remove the H1Bs.
In addition, for the position based green card, the pay needs to be at least AVERAGE for that position (no less), while the taxes are double of which the company will pay the second portion.
