it's probably a better Star Trek movie than a couple of the actual Trek movies.

probably? Pearl Harbor is a better Star Trek movie than The Final Frontier.

Gun ownership is a liberty. You seem to have confused Liberalism with liberalism.

Iowa Seeks To Remove Electoral College

howdoesth Re:Yawn. (1088 comments)

#2 - The logistics of holding a "national recount" are simply not possible. Recounting a state alone is bad enough (look at the Dem vote fraud efforts for Franken and the "targeted recounting" of counties, which magically has more votes than voters in several Dem-heavy districts trying to steal the Senate election).

Show me a single county in Minnesota that's reporting more votes than voters. It shouldn't be hard, because you say that there are several. The data are freely available from the Minnesota Secretary of State http://electionresults.sos.state.mn.us/20081104/ so there's nothing standing in your way.

Note: a county that reports more valid votes after a recount than it did on election night is an entirely different thing than a county reporting more votes than voters. The former is a natural result from going back over the data more carefully, the latter is a huge red flag that someone screwed up and would be actual news, instead of a throwaway line muttered by wingnuts.

I'm not saying that the Minnesota recount has gone perfectly, both sides have been pretty childish, but if you're going to complain about it at least complain about real problems.

DNS Inventor Tackles Flaw

howdoesth Re:Law is only way (101 comments)

You always have the option to boycott that ISP, but if you live somewhere like I do, you only have one broadband option.

I see you're using the sense of "always" that means "occasionally" or even "very rarely."
