1) Yeah, which is why I did it. Inflamatory subject using rational thought. Imagine that.

2) If you ran a Hamburger Restaurant and said that you're not a "Hamburger" place because only 33% of your business was "Hamburgers", would you be telling the truth, or telling a lie?

You sell Hamburger, fries, and a soda, and count that as 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 you'd technically be correct. But everyone in the world would understand that you're in the "hamburger" business. Right?

3) So, yeah, Abortion procedure itself is only 12%. Technically correct using the metric as applied by PP, which is VERY similar to how I explained above. How about you ask the question differently. How many people visiting PP are there to get an abortion vs "other" services they offer. BTW, those "other" services are fairly limited to .... being an abortion provider.

They claim to be "women's health" but they do not offer Prenatal anything ... except abortion. They don't offer Mammograms like they continue to claim (as in NONE). They don't do .... a whole lot of things related to "women's health". (Fact Check article is technically correct: Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics)

BUT I have an idea, I've suggested a number of times. Planned Parenthood can keep all the funding it gets now, if they stop providing abortion or referrals for abortion. Lets see how much of their Business is Abortion. I'll bet it is like a Hamburger shop not being able to actually sell burgers. Just fries, cokes .... And yes, this would settle the case, once and for all. Their primary business is abortion. They can't exist without it.

Hey, just because you think it's a long walk to the grocery store, doesn't make that any more of a absolute yardstick.

Tell that to a quadriplegic. The back yard may be closer than the grocery store but that still doesn't mean he's gonna get there any time soon. Without the wheelchair and a motor or someone to push, all distances greater than zero are out of reach.

There is an expectation that you are not being monitored by the police state, up until this point. Technology is invasive the moment it becomes pervasive. I have no ability to OPT out of state surveillance, and the state has no expectation that they can monitor me without a court order. I would consider this a violation of 4th Amendment "Unreasonable" search ....

All News is fake depending on who is reporting and who is the reader/viewer.

Kind of like "Planned Parenthood doesn't use public funding for abortion services". Technically "accurate", but really not even close to being accurate.

A woman comes in for an abortion, but gets six other "tests" and diagnostics done. Pregancy test, Pap smear .... etc. All those other "tests" are paid for by government money, none of which are part of the actual "abortion" procedure. Since that Planned Parenthood clinic provides mostly abortion related services, they are "government funded" and would fold if they didn't get any other funding. They subsidize the Abortion with federal monies, using loopholes.

Technically it is "true" that PP doesn't use federal dollars for "abortion". Realistically it is fully subsidized procedure using loopholes. Both sides are considered "alternative facts" by the other side. And the reason we can't have civil discourse about anything any more.

And watch this get modded "Troll" since I used the inflammatory "Planned Parenthood / Abortion" example by people who can't actually debate the actual topic.

There are several issues with most systems that require certificates to work correctly.

1) Certificates Expire, on a regular basis, have a plan to update them (Auto renew)
2) Notifications should be sent to a "group" email address, not an individual.
3) We have these things called "Calendars" use them
4) Documentation is key, even if 1-3 fail you should have a searchable document that has they dates listed for key events.

The problem is, nobody ever documents shit like this, because actual documentation process takes more time than actually doing the Cert updates.Except when you measure the failure to renew it in time.

Sneak preview of the API:

crypto_really_encode(plaintext, algorithm); // Simplest
crypto_really_encode(plaintext, mode, algorithm); // Next arg goes in the middle
crypto_really_encode(block_size, plaintext, algorithm, mode); // Switch it up yo lol

...where AES will somehow be a valid value for both mode and algorithm (which will silently override to "NULL" if plaintext starts with a zero or the letter "p").

I'll be better able to figure it when the cartridge is empty. The savings come from not having to pay eight or ten bucks for copies that I'm proofreading.

They're already online as free e-books, HTML, and PDF, with printed copies available at a price.
