Intuit, Maker of Turbotax, Lobbies Against Simplified Tax Filings

litehacksaur111 Re:Not even much money (357 comments)

Yeah, but making taxes difficult to do also creates animosity towards the IRS which directly helps the talking points of the right.

Netflix Gets What It Pays For: Comcast Streaming Speeds Skyrocket

litehacksaur111 Re:No... (311 comments)

The ONLY way to stop this shit is to label all ISP as common carriers. This is the most important issue of our time because if the ISP's knock down net neutrality they can easily force us into PIPA and SOPA.

Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

litehacksaur111 Re:Force her out! (313 comments)

That's right. I don't use dropbox and never will as long as they have ANYONE on their board who supports the NSA. I am against the NSA, TSA, patriot act, and I think those issues are where I share ground with intelligent conservatives.

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

litehacksaur111 Re:i pledge to you... (719 comments)

I said BCBS had the majority of ACA marketplace enrollees, not the majority of people insured. I never claimed that everyone in the US was buying plans on the marketplace through the exchanges. I have already provided you a link substantiating the claims I made. Now where is your evidence that the books are cooked? I am waiting...

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

Well point inc is a member of blue cross blue shield. If you add the numbers from well-point inc to just blue cross then you will get a majority. Read your own damn link

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

litehacksaur111 Re:How many actually paid, new policies? (719 comments)

Your numbers do not include the expansion of medicaid for states that chose to accept federal funding to provide care for those below the poverty line. For example Kentucky cut its uninsured rate by 50% with the expansion of medicaid.

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

litehacksaur111 Re:i pledge to you... (719 comments)

BCBS is a consortium of insurers coming together and offering plans. The BCBS group accounts for the majority of the enrollment, so if their numbers show that customers enrolled and paid, then the numbers are fairly accurate. Also why do you not have any sources for faking the numbers? I provided you a BCBS source. Please provide me a statement from a health insurer indicating that sufficient number of people have not signed up.

Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

litehacksaur111 Re:Uh oh! (313 comments)

You know anyone who is stupid enough to use cloud storage for securing data even after seeing the company hire someone who supported the patriot act, tsa, nsa, torture, etc is really not going to care about stance on gay marriage.

Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

litehacksaur111 Re:Force her out! (313 comments)

What the fuck does this have to do with tolerance. Why would I want someone who supports the Patriot Act, NSA, TSA, basically everything big brotherish to sit on the board of a cloud based storage company. That basically says to me that I should expect that the data will be sold to the highest bidder and I have no privacy.

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

litehacksaur111 Re:i pledge to you... (719 comments)

Blue cross Blue shield has said that 80 to 85% of all enrollees had paid. http://www.chron.com/news/medi... My question to you is do you have any evidence other than speculation that the enrollment books are being cooked? Because even fox news cannot find any one who has hard evidence that the books are cooked and you and I both know that if someone came forward with that information they would be instantly famous.

New French Law Prohibits After-Hours Work Emails

Their definition of unemployment and the the formula for calculation is different than the US. If the US followed the same formula our unemployment would be about the same.

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

litehacksaur111 Re:i pledge to you... (719 comments)

All the insurance companies are are private entities. All of them seem to be putting out similar numbers in terms of those enrolled. If you really believe the numbers are phony, why don't you find a publicly traded insurance company and file an SEC complaint for defrauding shareholders if you really think the numbers are bogus.

Apple, Google Go On Trial For Wage Fixing On May 27

litehacksaur111 Re:I am just simple. (148 comments)

Exactly. The only way something like this will stop is if a large punitive damage is awarded or the executive who came up with this policy is tried in criminal court.

The Billionaires Privatizing American Science

litehacksaur111 Re:Govt funding is aberration (279 comments)

The reference is the PBS documentary on the rise of silicon valley from its roots. Also, I am not sure what population growth has anything to do with causing advancement of science. If anything it is the other way around. Population growth was enable by advancement in hygiene and medicine. Also I would say that science really did not advance during 1200 even controlled for population as near 1600.

The Billionaires Privatizing American Science

litehacksaur111 Re:Govt funding is aberration (279 comments)

Yes, but at no time did science advance as quickly as between 1960 to the present. You do realize that NASA and the DOD was buying 90% of all transistors made in the 60's and 70's which started the whole digital revolution. You keep pretending like the government had no role in promoting any scientific progress because it suits your ideology.

The Billionaires Privatizing American Science

litehacksaur111 Re:Return to very old models? (279 comments)

Yeah, but the average person did not benefit from any of the work that Aristotle or Da Vinci were doing whereas many of the drugs today were discovered through basic science research funded by the NIH
