Allow everyone to vote in BOTH primaries
In most states non-party voters could vote in any primary.
You know what happened in states where Democrats could vote for the Republican primary candidate? Many of them came in and voted for Trump. Because they thought, who could possibly lose against Trump?
Then they went back to the Democrat primary and voted for the one person that could...
Ranked preference / instant-runoff voting in primaries and in the November general election
Why would the results have been any different? If you add up all the Stein/Johnson votes it's not enough to have the whole election results turn out differently, even IF all such voters listed Hillary second - many would not have.
Eliminate Electoral College
And have all candidates spend the whole time in Texas and California, ignoring the rest of the country? No thanks.
You have no idea what a wildfire you are trying to ignite, to have the entire rest of the nation feel utterly ignored.
Possibly also eliminate President/VP "ticket" and let #2 vote-getter become VP
You remember the VP from the movie Dave? Yeah.
Government doesn't care about ordinary Americans. So government spending doesn't help ordinary Americans live longer, better lives. Only insiders benefit. The rest of us bear the burden.
So then you are looking at specialized equipment thinking it can replace a human at a generic job? I think you are doing a couple of things wring here: underestimating our desire to build generic robots while overestimating capacity of specialized equipment to replace people at generic jobs within newer companies that don't have the capital to acquire or build very specialized equipment. In either case I think my points still stand, if the equipment is too specialized and expensive, humans can compete if they can provide quality, if the equipment is so general purpose and ubiquitous that anybody can afford it with a few months of pay, then people would be acquiring it to rent it out to businesses or to do jobs just like the owner operator truck drivers of today.
As to taxes and regulations, obviously they are making human labour less competitive compared to capital, is this even a question? A robot will not sue the company for 'wrongful termination' or for 'sexual harassment' or anything else for that matter (regardless of the merits). Regardless of what
100% wrong. Scalpers make tickets available that otherwise wouldn't be to people who really need to see the show more than someone else.
We should hope that AI can learn to code and do it well enough that I could converse with it in a human language, define the problem as I see it and it would immediately (it would be immediate, right) give me a number of ready solutions to pick from. The amount of new product development that could take place would be staggering, we could quickly realise any idea, I hope that the AI would be good enough at that point to do user support and maintenance for the selected solution.
You, guys, are basically looking at it all wrong. Why shouldn't we desire to have systems at our disposal that would be good enough to create software (and at some point hardware) that we could 'program' by explaining high level requirements to a machine? The machine would have to ask more questions, the testing would reveal problems, the machine could do support and maintenance. I see this as a huge net positive, not as something that would hurt us but as something that would save us from decades of sitting on ass, getting less and less active over time, going blind from the screen... And we could never achieve everything we needed anyway at the speed of a human coder.
The script you are running is a bastardized conglomeration of react and xpath that doesn't even close matching brackets, I am not worried until you start killing flies...
No, US bonds are the definition of ponzi scam that even Madoff would be awed by. U S A cannot return the borrowed VALUE of the money, that is what the Fed and the rest of the central banks are involved in, global inflation, writing off the debt without admitting the technicality of the default. The actual USA debt is all of the federal, state, municipal, corporate and personal borrowing that exceeds 221 trillion dollars and cannot be repaid under any circumstances.
"if im reading correctly, they are buying the bonds with pre tax dollars."
Foreign earnings are only taxed by the US worldwide tax regime if they are repatriated to the US. Foreign earnings are, of course, taxed by the country where they are earned (generally by a territorial tax regime).
Generally the corporations lobby, often with hard cash, for these laws that they've written
The Lift America Coalition (including large corporations like 3M, Cisco, Intel, Walmart, etc.) has been lobbying for a territorial corporate tax system rather than a worldwide corporate tax system, which would allow trillions of dollars of profits to be repatriated back to the US, but to date they have not been successful in getting Congress to change the corporate tax regime (which the majority of OECD countries have).
Coding is easy; All you do is sit staring at a terminal until the drops of blood form on your forehead.
