Comment Re:Yeah but there's a whole world out there (Score 4, Insightful) 847

You really want to pay more for your groceries, for your deliveries, for your repairs, for ... well, pretty much anything?

Aside from the moral issue of uprooting established illegals that have made a life for themselves over the last 10 year, to answer your question economically, YES YES and YES! When you import cheap labor, not only are you leaving Americans without an opportunity to earn a living, you now drive wages into the ground and force all those effected into taking more government assistance. That assistance is payed for by the tax payer. And who shoulders the cost? The broad numbers of the middle-class. As such, the disparity between the rich and poo/middle class is growing exponentially!

Pay now, or pay dearly later, but we all WILL PAY in the end.

Comment Re:How efficient is hydrogen really? (Score 1) 198

The problem with using hydrogen in an ICE is an issue with 'hydrogen embrittlement'. It basically causes cracks to form in steel. In the case of a Wankel, a steel based apex seal would have a short life. I'm not sure what hydrogen would do to a more expensive silicon nitride apex seal however over its life.

With regards to why hydrogen is more efficient in an ICE; I think it has to do with detonation duration and time in the chamber. With a piston, there longer travel time for the gases to detonate and expand. In a Wankel engine, only 1/3rd of rotary is traveling (rotating) during the combustion phase, so a shorter duration in the chamber is an advantage here.

Want a chance of smacking this down via SCOTUS?? Do *NOT* elect Hillary Clinton!!! SCOTUS will be undergoing a generational change, and the next POTUS will be picking replacements.

This next election is not about Trump or Hillary; this election is about remaining a sovereign country with our constitutional rights, or not! Choose wisely.

1. NK views Trump as a threat to their regime, thereby hoping Hillary Clinton wins by getting the voter to turn on Trump.
2. NK is taking the diplomatic approach ahead of time in the event Trump does become the next President.

This tells me, go vote Trump! =)

Umm... Obama is doing all the things that you feel are illegal that Snowden leaked... And is out to put him in jail.
You can not say that Snowden did the right thing by breaking the law and reporting things you feel are illegal while President Obama is doing those illegal things.

Comment Re: As the US surrenders control of DNS (Score 2) 237

Except, from TFA, "The data I see suggests China, an assessment shared by the people I spoke with."

But that's impossible in your mind...it has to be the US. It could never be a US adversary with principles that run decided counter to internet freedom, human rights, and so on. Clearly this is a US effort to leave itself a capability to "take down the internet", when we are the ones ceding control of ICANN and IANA.

"The data I see suggests China, an assessment shared by the people I spoke with."

Of course, that will be buried in these comments that it's a US false flag, that obviously it's the US that's responsible, etc.

It couldn't possibly be someone like China.

You mean all those companies that where developing systems for the government with government money?
As opposed to one of the only other private companies to try and build a launcher.. like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/....
