Or, if the gas vehicle is used just for road trips or,very occasional use...don't own one, and rent when needed. No maintenance cost, no insurance cost, and extra space in the garage/driveway. Heck, many credit cards offer rental insurance as a perk, so you may not even have to pay insurance on the rental car.
I generally think the same thing, but only because of the means to the end. It should be an effect of their time in office, not the goal.
I want my elected officials to work towards re-election, but only by faithfully representing the electorate and working in their best interests and the interests of the public. If you represent the electorate well, they will reward you with re-election.
I do NOT want my elected officials to work towards re-election using deceptive and illegal tactics, lying to the electorate, or other nefarious means. Don't FOOL me into re-electing you.
How would jobs be lost? What was once owned by the dealership would instead be owned by the manufacturer. There would still be a need for sales staff, mechanics, etc. instead of Diamond Jim owning the dealership, Ford owns it.
The skeptic in me says he vetoed it as political cover, expecting his veto to be overruled.
Eh? A governor's veto has only been overruled twice in the history of the state. Where did you think the support is to overrule this one?
Per the article, the bill passed the state legislator with "overwhelming" support, which tells me that there would be enough support for a veto override; although I have to admit, I didn't look up the actual vote tally and compare it to the vote tally required to override a veto.
The skeptic in me says he vetoed it as political cover, expecting his veto to be overruled. The article says that the bill "overwhelmingly" passed both Louisiana chambers. This way he can say "I stood up for privacy and against big government" knowing that his veto wasn't going to stop it.
Would he have vetoed it if it barely passed?
"Keeping servers fully blind as to the data they're working with is an open field of academic research. It's not something that Google or Facebook or Twitter or DropBox or whoever are holding back from because they hate privacy. It's just a really hard problem."
How is this a hard problem? The Spideroak cloud storage service does this; uploaded files are encrypted before they leave your machine. Even the file names are secret; the servers have zero knowledge of the file's name or type or contents.
I think an important distinction is being missed here. The author is calling out the ISPs, not the end user. I'd prefer my ISP not inject their own ad blocking into the stream (or worse...their own substitute ads) and leave the blocking up to the user.
Now, if the author extends that moral judgement to the end user, that's another story.
I was thinking the same thing. To really see what it does, you have to get the original text and apply the bill to it. Otherwise, yes, it's just a bunch of patches. I'd like to see more bills written in a form that replaces the entire section so the change can be seen in context.
The Packers used to play a couple of home games every season in the old Milwaukee County Stadium. They haven't done that since the '90s (and County Stadium was razed in 2000) but Milwaukee is still considered part of the Packers home media market.
