Time To Remove 'Philosophical' Exemption From Vaccine Requirements?

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:No (1048 comments)

Because with many diseases, people are contagious before they are recognizably symptomatic? Or are you suggesting that unvaccinated people should go out in public crying "UNCLEAN!"?

Tesla Wants Texas Auto Sales Regulations Loosened

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:"there's a certain logic to doing those in Texa (137 comments)

They'll end up paying twice the difference in bribes to state and local politicians and bureaucrats. Functionaries in India go to sleep DREAMING they lived in Texas. Illinois governors dream that when they get out of prison they'll get elected in Texas.

Coal Plants Get New Lease On Life With Natural Gas

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:Gas not less CO2 on refiring coal plants (143 comments)

Please don't bring logic and engineering to the discussion, we're busy blaming liberals and environmentalists for resisting another corporate handout. After all, it's the "envirwackos", not the NIMBY soccer moms and the timid capitalists keeping us from having a shiny nuclear plant on every block. We NEED to be spending public money to "upgrade" privately-owned, already-amortized and obsolete coal plants to inefficiently burn natural gas. It's a Christmas miracle!

Intel Announces Major Reorg To Combine Mobile and PC Divisions

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:Dumping (75 comments)

LOL really? All the Android tablet makers should just fold their tents? Because "the user experience for Android on a tablet device is horrible compared to the iPad"? And "[Android] is slighty better than an ebook reader"? I'm sure they'll all discontinue making Android tablets later today. iPad/iPhone 4ever!!1!!!

And Google and Samsung disappeared in a puff of fanboyism.

"This is a ballot-box or pocket-book issue that hasn't really been seen yet in the United States."
