Comment Scary (Score 2) 435

It's kind of scary that the people who want to be elected to run the branch of government that is in charge of implementing cyber security are such a bunch of damn clueless morons about it.

I mean there are high schoolers who would do better securing and safeguarding their emails than this crew...

Heh, who's the JV team?

I'll second this solution. Good color laser printers are available at a reasonable price now. I print seldom, but when I do, I want good clean copy. I was always faced with dried ink on my inkjets. Finally got a cheap color laser, a Ricoh, and have been much happier with my general printing solution.

I've met many parents with children they believe were damaged by vaccines, some rather severely. My daughter is remarkably vibrant, yet has never had a vaccination shot. I'm not necessarily opposed, but as we've considered each vaccine, that one at that time seemed unnecessary or unhealthy.

Recently at a meeting that was centered around observing the Earth and Earth sciences, someone noted that "all the money is going into modeling the climate, what about funding for figuring out more about how the Earth's climate system operates?"

This was a very insightful observation, and the danger of that line of thinking is seen here. Be careful how staunchly you claim to have the only possible viable definitive answer. Because when you have that, why would you need to be funded to ask any more questions?

You are making the grand assumption that people who blog about the news and events are incapable of doing so effectively without charging a fee.

The mainstream journalism outlets (how am I including gawker in that? ugh) want you to believe that because some blogs are bad at journalism that all blogs must be ignored.
