Here's some commie propaganda for your ass: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Author:Eben_Moglen http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Eben_Moglen :) (Favorite modern day philosopher.) edit: point of posting this is the necessity for "free spectrum." As long as it's being tightly controlled this sort o...

You also have to consider what was gained: a generation of engineers who are now energizing private space. Nah, Cx was almost wholly based on military space and status quo cost plus contracts. Many of these people have been in the business for decades , their employee base has not changed significa...

Shelby isn't a porker, he's a frick moron . The new direction benefits his state more than any other state . MSFC is in AL, Atlas and Delta are built in AL. His state is poised to receive more jobs than any other state thanks to Obama's budget for NASA. It's absurd. He needs to lose his job. Alabama...

Nah, the money will be doled out appropriately. If it's not you can expect a really nasty PR backlash from it. CEOs and elites don't really think about the consequences of their actions. At least Obama chose to play golf on an air force base rather than some course up in Vermont. Little known fact, ...

BP saying the regulators slacked off is excuse making. It's likely that the regulators were just too overwhelmed by how many rigs are going up, so BP decided to skirt the law. They were 100% aware that their blowout preventer was not up to par, I can 100% guarantee that. The blame game is BP saying ...

Uh, that's why they appointed the new guy to dole out the escrow money. The question is what happens when that money runs out.

Note: fraud prevention is going to have to happen here, you can't just file a claim unless you're legitimately affected. Katrina had a lot of false claims.

Isn't gas more permeable than liquid? Correct me if I'm wrong. If it is then I'd argue it does make a case for a (small) nuke. And FYI the "squeezing the bores shut" explanation was for public consumption, I doubt very seriously they thought "we'll just pinch the pipe closed with a nu...

MSimon , I see no contradiction in what I said and the Wikipedia article you linked. If anything it illustrates why I am an anti-capitalist. Read a contract sometime. You will not find any these days that doesn't give the contractor some major leverage in the vein of "rent seeking." BTW, ...

OK. According to you capitalist = rent seeker. Yes, the foundation of capitalism is rent and contract. No capitalist, not even a Randian crazy will say that they are against rent. Only a small minority of anarcho-capitalists, might be against rent seeking but even the ancaps against rent are a mino...

Uh. You paint with too broad a brush. A capitalist is one who deploys resources in the hopes of supplying some human want or desire at a profit. A rent seeker is one who uses government guns to profit without regard to want or need. Capitalists are not ones to refuse rent, and are happy to hire thu...

Most likely the engineers involved in the project were told to cut corners for profit, and so they did so to the best of their knowledge. The resonance is clearly no where near as bad as Gertie. Could last quite a while longer, even, and may actually be fixed at the taxpayer dime (probably in the en...
