Don't like it? Look in the mirror and take your elections more seriously.
I do not support what's happening at Guantanamo Bay. I voted for Obama in 2008 largely because he vowed to close it. He won the election, and yet he did not close it. That is the strongest example I have of why you cannot blame the electorate; we simply don't get what we vote for.
Furthermore, those same civilian leaders who tell us that the war on terror is necessary also tell us that marijuana is dangerous and that "legitimate rape" doesn't result in pregnancy. At what point should we start holding people responsible for believing them? Even if the civilian voter does believe them, they aren't the ones pulling the triggers.
Yup...and I can't for the life of me figure out how that jives with the 7 th Amendment: "In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law." Seems pretty clear to me.
The Constitution is like the Bible. It's supposedly sacred and infallible, but It's not meant to be taken literally and you have to let the courts interpret it for you (in the context of their own personal interests). As time passes, more and more of it gets flat-out ignored, and eventually it will only ever be read as an academic exercise by historians.
Getting rid of the colors on the buttons seems baseless. I can't tell you how many times...
Me: "Press A"
Yup. It's even worse for those of us that don't have HD TVs. When on-screen instructions appear, the only way I can understand them is from the colors.
Computers are consistant and predictable. The human brain is not.
We have billions of human brains cheaply available, so let's use those when we want a human brain. And let's use computers when we want computers.
As others have said, there's no way around the need for repetition and a lot of practice.
Also, diligence is extremely important. If you're not using them, then you forget the characters very quickly. If you're not careful you might actually find that you're forgetting characters as quickly as you're learning new ones.
I'm sure the loss of his child is punishment enough.
I can't imagine how terrible being in his situation would be, sounds worse than jail.
Not if he didn't like the kid.
You can't really say "the loss of his child is punishment enough," because that would provide an easy way out for anybody who didn't want their kid anymore: Just pretend to like him for a couple years then leave a loaded gun lying around.
Way easier than 18 years of child support.
BASIC is the Computer Science equivalent of `Scientific Creationism'.
