"Really cock sucking whore. Do you have proof to support this assertion that does not come with wheel barrels full of cash....

Cocksucking whores across all of America join in demanding an apology from you for comparing them to a conscienceless bottom feeder like Kathy Byron. Spokes-slut Anya Neeze says that when the lipstick hits the love muscle, at least she and her colleagues provide something of value to average guys. The only things Byron sucks hang small, limp and useless from the crotches of rich old men with too much money, too much power and too much regret that they never came out of the closet when they were still spry enough to chase down a congressional page.

You may be in for disappointment. The sound might not degrade, but depending on manufacturing quality and how it's stored, the CD itself can break down with age.

As I said earlier (and got modded down by one of the right wing trolls who are attempting to take over this site), this is why Conservative Stephen Harper tried to kill of the compulsory census, and shut down climate monitoring in Canada's north...and destroyed as much data as possible.

The only way to really compromise a study with access to that kind of "big data" is to put a hole in the middle of the data set where no information was collected, or where it was collected in a manner that is rendered worthless.

By making the long form census voluntary, Harper ensured that the data collection was essentially non-random, and therefore worthless in the context of data collected before and after.

From TFA: "Although the cancer death rate remained 15% higher in blacks than in whites in 2014, increasing access to care as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare) may contribute to a further narrowing of the racial gap across all population groups. In 2015, 11% of blacks and 7% of non-Hispanic whites were uninsured, compared with 21% of blacks and 12% of non-Hispanic whites in 2010. Progress for Hispanics is similar, with the uninsured rate dropping from 31% in 2010 to 16% in 2015."

If conservatives don't kill off Obamacare quickly enough, there's a chance some of those non-whites might survive to voting age...and not be too sick to get to the polls.

Oh, they got into the Republicans' business alright. And the stakes are high...very high. Because now whatever the Russians got will be excellent blackmail material.

Only a complete moron would believe the (Republican) House Homeland Security Chair when he claimed he "misspoke" after admitting the Republicans were also hacked.P>

Conservatives will want to get this turned around as fast as they can.
