Has the Ethanol Threat Manifested In the US?

Malizar Re:Comment from a Chemist (432 comments)

And back in the '80s and '90s people knew to avoid the stations that were using additives to cheapen their gas. I have tried E10 vs E0 quite a few times, it's worth it to find the E0 fuel, especially for older or high performance vehicles.

Water Cannons Used Against Peaceful Anti-TTIP Protestors: the Next ACTA Revolt?

Malizar Re:Silly Peasants (142 comments)

Portions of the decline go back much further, some would trace it to right after the US was founded. I tend to think the major portion of decline began with Lincoln, he did a great deal to place the Federal government above the people and the Constitution.

Malizar Re:Just Another Sign That U-Verse Is A Failure (73 comments)

I would have to say I am happy with my U-Verse service at home. I was with TWC before, and they REALLY sucked. I had to reset my internet router multiple times a day, they sent technician after technician out to find the problem, and no luck. I switched to U-Verse and my internet has been down for about 15 minutes in the last 2 years.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

Malizar Re:Militia, then vs now (1633 comments)

I have never seen a death caused by a gun, many caused by humans using guns as a weapon. I have also seem men die because of words, does that mean words kill by your logic? Should freedom of speech and freedom of the press be curtailed because of the damage men cause using them?

Malizar Re:Local LUG eats crow??? (62 comments)

OpenSSL is in use on Linux as well as on Windows. Chrome is in use on Windows, the Linux version is Chromium, which may or may not have the same issue.

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

Malizar Re:Not so fast, cowboy ... (723 comments)

And they are doing this so that when it reaches the SCOTUS again, they can say "It's a fine, not a tax." and get it by the court again.

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

Malizar Re:Fuck Obamacare (723 comments)

Apparently the indoctrination has been successful with you. In reality the government's power derives from the people. The Constitution is not there to specify what rights the all-powerful government has deigned to grant upon us mere mortal citizens, it is in place to keep the government in check. It specifies what the government is allowed to do and what it is not allowed to do. Somewhere along the line the people forgot this and allowed the government to seize a great deal of power that is beyond it's authority.

Jewish School Removes Evolution Questions From Exams

Malizar Re:If you don't like it.... (431 comments)

It is a shame, I had to endure science classes where they kept harping on the coming ice ace and how mankind was destroying the environment and pushing us into an ice age. I had to endure classes where nonsense was pushed forward as "fact", and if a student questioned the "facts" he was marked a trouble maker. I had to hold strong to my faith that was under attack by teachers on a daily basis, not because of reality, but because they were trying to mold us into good little liberals. History classes that downplayed the contributions of the majority, while hyping the contributions of the minorities. Before you start throwing stones at what a religious school is doing, make sure you step out of your own glass house first.

How Well Do Our Climate Models Match Our Observations?

Malizar Re:Temperature data (560 comments)

Even the current data is suspect. I know the local monitoring station is next to a big hunk of asphalt that was not there 20 years ago.

GOP Bill To Outlaw EPA 'Secret Science' That Is Not Transparent, Reproducible

Malizar Re:Creationist "science" (618 comments)

So, Creationists have conducted an experiment were, in one test, there is a God, and in the second test, there is NOT a God, and all other conditions are identical, and in the first, life appears, and in the second, it does not?

Have scientists conducted an experiment where, in one test, there is an earth where man has polluted the environment, and in a second test, man does not exist to create the pollution, and all other conditions are identical, and in the first global warming appears, and in the second, it does not?</s>

Some things on both sides are just accepted as fact by people on both sides, it's why the debate on some topics is so heated. At least the creationists admit they are acting on something they believe by faith.

Apple Pays Only 2% Corporate Tax Outside US

Malizar Re:Let's hear it for the beancounters (432 comments)

You would have to convince all the Apple fanatics to quit buying Apple products because of things like this. And the masses will keep buying, so there is no reason for companies to do things honestly.

Paul Vixie On DNS Changer: We're Dealing With Malware the Wrong Way

Malizar Re:Time to take the tinfoil hat off... (163 comments)

Handling this right would have been to set up a DNS server that redirected them to a page telling them their computer was infected by malware and with instructions on how to remove it.

Man Protests TSA With Nudity

Malizar Re:hope it was worth the megan's law list (434 comments)

Congress does it every year with tax law, bills are often passed in late December or even early January that apply to the prior tax year. They have been getting away with it for a long time, why would they stop now?
