  1. the advancement of robotics will be cool in the next few generations. Remember the movie surrogates? check out this link http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/crux/2013/10/25/mind-meld-future-of-brain-to-brain-communication/ if they can download human to human, human to machine shouldn't be far off.
  2. yep, trust no one. O isn't the first, the only and wont be the last to do this kind of staged show. Rarely are the people standing behind politicians there because they showed up early. The few speeches I have been to the camera viewable audience and question asking audience is polled and approved before they are anywhere near the cameras line of sight. That being said I have my questions of this video too. Really I posted it to get everyone else thoughts. I could see the women to the left not taking ques but communicating with a person near by about the fainting women not looking so well. The president could have caught part of the concern being communicated and turned around. Of course if that's true the women holding her up is a lousy person because she made no attempt to stop the fall and her smile never cracked, also the president apparently has amazing timing. So still have my doubts..
  3. there are plenty of road side test to show levels of intoxication, eg any test that shows level of reaction time and balance. What there are not are road side test to show active levels of THC in the blood stream. Those are unnecessary though because as you said, once you have used a form of THC the chemical trace can be found in your system weeks after the effects have worn off. Whats funny is Drug test are known by drug users to be a faulty system but they are believed to be perfect by other people. A pot smoker can smoke on the weekend at his home and then fail a drug test 2 weeks later at work and be fired, a heroin, crack or meth user can use their drug of choice 12-36 hours before a test and still pass with flying colors. Depending on their metabolism. Which one do you want working for you? Now someone also said "what about things pot are laced with?" well those are still illegal, and if your going to outlaw anything that can be laced with other drugs you have a major problem. Every food item would fall into that category. As someone else said, "lacing" a drug and selling it as pot makes no sense, its akin to giving away something for free. If that was someones goal why not do it with lettuce at the supermarket or add it to your beer? Also 90% of the people that want to smoke pot are not seeking other drugs to use. I think in the end this comes down to basic freedoms. How can you deny a fellow American his or her right to do what they want in their own home and life if it in no way effects another?? Even if you don't use or like Pot every freedom loving American should be supporting this, right now this demographic is fighting for their personal rights. I pray most Americans never have to fight for their personal rights against the government, but if you do don't you want all the other people on your side?? "First They Came for the Jews" By Pastor Niemoller "First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me."
  4. absolutely, stand up for your rights. Speak out every chance you can. Not trying to say otherwise, doing so is really the only freedoms we have left and so few even do that.. Just trying to state how awful things have become and with out a massive outcry and change in attitude its only going to get worse.
  5. Use this link http://justexempt.me/ you know the problem with this is the current administration is known to actively attack (IRS audit) those that go against them.
  6. $678 million is such an insane number for a website... just think you could have paid 500 of the worlds best programers $1m each to write a brand new awesome site, then spent 100 million on building a brand new server farm to handle massive traffic beyond anything this site should have experienced. And after all that there would still be 78 million to call profit for the company. Instead they got greedy, purchased 10 year old software that is usually found for free and then botched the programming and infrastructure. I seriously doubt if this project had anywhere near $1m worth of necessary work performed to get the product we have now.
  7. this is good, trains are really needed. It's hard on the richer Iraqi's to get all those wheel barrows of cash to town on shopping day. I think this will help that problem.
  8. not really questioning your thoughts on the president, to each his own, but are you really saying the "problem" is usage or implementation of free speech??
  9. http://www.lady-patriots.com/proof-obamas-fainting-lady-was-faked-in-3-minutes/# Proof Obama’s Fainting Lady was Faked in 3 Minutes I don’t watch a lot of television. In fact, I don’t ever watch it. If it doesn’t come on Netflix or an online video I usually skip it. That’s why it took me a little while to watch the video of the President rescuing the damsel in distress in the Rose Garden. It popped up on my news feed on Facebook, and I got curious. As it turned out, it floored me. I couldn’t believe how phony it was. As soon as I watched it I went to youtube to check it out from different directions. It was just as fake from any of them. For some strange reason, Obama has to have props around him when he does one of his con-jobs in the Rose Garden, or wherever he chooses to receive his worshipers. This was no different, except that he had animated props this time. Although it was well staged there were enough holes in this little scene to drive the proverbial truck through. It is obvious that there are quite a few people involved in this latest fraud put out by the Whitehouse. Why did Obama think it was necessary to “catch” a fainting woman just when he said the words, “To free families from the pervasive fear that one illness….” And down she went? Well not actually down. She just weaved and wobbled a little and never quite fainted. And, consequently, Obama never actually caught her. He turned around and put his hand on her shoulder as if to steady her and turned back to the camera to make sure it got a clear shot of his “rescue” efforts. You will see in the following video that the pregnant woman is standing with a friend who is holding her hand with her arm wrapped around her waist. That is until she starts to “faint”. Then she steps slightly aside and never even looks at the women she is holding. She smiles a nervous smile for the camera because she has done her part in this extremely poorly orchestrated drama. Why would they come up with this transparent attempt to manipulate the low information voters? Who knows? Did it make anyone feel warm and fuzzy for our hero President? Probably. There are a lot of idiots out there. Did it take the focus off the disastrous website? I don’t think so. Whatever the reason was that Obama and his advisers had to dream up this silly scheme it certainly smacks of desperation. If I was him I would fire them all. But, who knows? As stupid as this idea was, it could have been his. Maybe he’ll fire himself.
  10. that's an old article but for the fun of it lets see... If the dinar becomes 1,000 times more valuable, it will become 1,000 times more expensive to do business in Iraq. Do you think this would be sustainable? it used to be, why couldn't it be again? also it is 1000x more expensive to do business in other countries if what you are basing the cost to is the currency valuation. Would you buy dinars at 1,000 times the current price? If not, why do you expect someone to buy your dinars at 1,000 times what you paid for them? this is a stupid question.... why do people buy yellow rocks out of the ground for $1k's per ounce? because they have value assigned by an economy of trade. If the current market decided IQD was worth its weight in gold yes everyone would pay more for it today no matter what it cost yesterday. If there was any possibility of a 1,000x revaluation, would dinar sellers be so keen to sell their stock to you? Is it possible that they think their mark-up is the best profit they can make? Yes. people would still sell it, this is what people do to make money, they sell things. Welcome to planet earth. Only if there were a 100% guarantee on an increase tomorrow that the dealer knew about would they stop selling, and that would fall into insider trading. Many investment professionals promote their ideas and “talk their book”. Why has no accomplished investor promoted the idea of massive gains from the dinar? yeah because books written of future investments are really really credible and always correct, that's what we should be looking for to verify this whole thing. The 1,000x rumour has been circulating for many years, but the forex markets have not reacted by driving up dinar prices significantly. On what basis do you believe you’re more “in the know” than the market? the market doesn't "know" it reacts. there is also the problem of legal trade ability there are common fluctuations in the IQD and if it were legally trade able you could be making money on forex with it, but its not Does scepticism of massive gains from the dinar make you angry? If so, and if you think you’re going to make 1,000 times your money, what is the reason for your anger? no Do you seek information that confirms your opinion, and dismiss information that challenges your opinion? sure, I just go to discussion forums to have my opinion confirmed.... thanks for the hostility in the last 2 questions.
  11. because they wanted free healthcare and jobs... lol that worked huh
  12. While I expect the rather usually BC volatility to be worsened in the short term due to this site being shut down, if the feds keep the seized BC out of circulation all they are going to do is increase the value. BC come in limited supply, there will only ever be so many. Also while what the feds did looks like something real, it was pretty much the same as kicking a bunch of flea market vendors out of a parking lot and locking the gate. The vendors will just go somewhere else, the only person arrested was the guy who owned the parking lot. Seems fair.
