    Here's a picture of your global warming in Buffalo:

    I worked in Rochester in 76 and 77. Compared to those 2 winters not only is this global warming, it's goddam tropical. We had drifts 30-40 feet high. Those pansy ass pictures you posted aren't even chest deep.

    Dude, it's November, the lakes aren't frozen yet

    Of course the lakes aren't frozen. That's why it's called lake effect snow. Duh. The northwesterlies pick up moisture off the unfrozen great lakes. Once the lakes freeze there isn't all that much snow. Lots of clouds though.

    I call it "Lead Sled II" after the F-105.

    The F-105 was a very good plane for what it was designed for. Low altitude high speed bomb delivery. Specifically it was designed for low altitude delivery of nuclear weapons. It as the fastest plane at low altitude until I believe the F-15 and could carry three times the bomb load of a B-17 or B-24. Considering they were used day in and day out to bomb Hanoi which was ringed by god only knows how many AA and SAM sights along with lots of NV fighters the F105 had a remarkably low loss rate. They even managed 27.5 air to air victories. The early D models had engine problems, but these were worked out. Supposedly the nickname Thud came from the sound of an early D model hitting the ground.

    Yea but it is still ambiguous as to who did what, not as simple as you assert where the Ds switched places with the Rs.

    No it's not. Conservative democrats switched to the Republican party after lbj pushed through the civil rights act. They had no choice if they wanted to stay in office. Liberal and progressive republicans (yes they did exist) were so disgusted by goldwater they went democrat.

    That is not the point. The point is that it diminishes naturally without any government intervention.

    You said ALL monopolies exist because of government. Do they or don't they? No weasel deal bullshit that monopolies not granted by government aren't monopolies because they don't last forever. Bell is no longer a monopoly. Does that mean they never were? You can't have it both ways no matter how much you try.

    Any other suggestions?

    Ever try the telezapper? I had one when I used to work out of my house. Some marketers have gotten wise to this device, but an awful lot haven't. It plays the Special information tone or 'SIT' that indicates the phone has been disconnected. Most computerized dialers will hang up and erase your number from their database when they get the sit tone. You have to discipline yourself to not say anything for a couple seconds after you hear the tone. The first month or so will drive you crazy since you get tons of hangups. After that it settles down.

It's hard to figure out what is actually being said with this yogi berra level of mangled syntax, klingon sentence structure, and plain old bad grammer.

    Actually, Microsoft got in trouble not only because of the operating system. It was because of bundling IE with windows and tweaking the API so that windows favored IE over all other web browsers.

    Legend had it that during the development of windows 98 there were signs all over that said "the jobs not done until netscape won't run". Microsoft was notorious for tweaking the api to break competitors software.

    Here is the source:

    You are purposely playing ignorant on (sort of like Iwog, cept he ain't pretending) this. Standard oil did not have a monopoly and market forces shrank their market share.

    I've read your wiki before. So 88% of the market isn't a monopoly? Or 95% as in windows at the peak? That's just pure bullshit. Losing a monopoly doesn't mean it didn't exist. DeBeers managed to hold onto the diamond monopoly for 120 years before losing control. Does that mean it didn't exist. Bell (AT&T) doesn't control the phones any more (they had control a lot less time than DeBeers), does that mean they didn't have a monopoly? You can't have it both ways.

    indigenous says

    A monopoly is a grant of special privilege by the State, reserving a certain area of production to one particular individual or group.

    This definition of monopoly goes back to the common law and acquired great political importance in England during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when an historic struggle took place between libertarians and the Crown over the issue of monopoly as opposed to freedom of production and enterprise

    History as per indiginous. Monoply (from Greek monos μόνος (alone or single) + polein πωλεῖν (to sell)) goes back to the greeks. The term "monopoly" first appears in Aristotle's Politics. Aristotle describes Thales of Miletus's cornering of the market in olive presses as a monopoly. Monopolies existed around the world a long time before 16th century england.

    Standard Oil is the typical example, as you can see it was a specious claim:

    The federal Commissioner of Corporations studied Standard's operations from the period of 1904 to 1906[29] and concluded that "beyond question... the dominant position of the Standard Oil Co. in the refining industry was due to unfair practices—to abuse of the control of pipe-lines, to railroad discriminations, and to unfair methods of competition in the sale of the refined petroleum products".[30]

    Where exactly in this cut and past from wiki does it detail how the government decreed unfair practices, abuse of the control of pipe-lines, railroad discriminations, and unfair methods of competition. That part seems to be missing.

    Indiginous alert. Citation needed, citation needed. Danger will robinson, danger.

    Oh wait I understand now, the government stepping in and breaking up standard oil was a government decree that allowed them to be a monopoly. That makes sense on some unknown level.

    No, no, I've really got it now. If the government fails to prevent a monopoly then it decrees a monopoly. So if there are no laws against it, then it's a decree but if the government steps in and regulates it then it's also a decree. The perfect conservative/liberatarian argument. Damned if you do damned if you don't. God willing and de cree don't rise.

    No,no,no, I've really really got it now. Aliens did it. Of course, how could I have missed it.

    I really don't understand why conservatives don't move en mass to DRC to enjoy the fruits of their utopian government free ideal world. I would think that spending every waking moment dreaming up new ways to hate government would lead to birth defects or hemmerhoids or something.

    You are implying that business are happy to exploit workers without any regard to their workers. That is simply not true, by way of a priori reasoning. It is true a business has to make a profit but it is also true that workers are hard to replace and that it is a win win situation for the business to take care of the worker.

    This is a joke right? You are kidding with me. What alternative universe do you actually live in?

    Oh, and how does the "customer" relate being sick to bad meat, as opposed to bad veggies, bad eggs, bad salad dressing, bad water, bad coworkers, or just door knobs they touched?

    By something you have a weak grasp on, correlation.

    and by what method do they correlate exactly what product made them sick?

    indigenous says

    And no it would not be against Libertarianism, you are thing in absolutes which is stupid as they don't exist.

    Very, very funny coming from someone who only works in absolutes. you did say that ONLY technology improved worker safety. Prove it.

    indigenous says

    E.G. a technology for irradiating meat (irradiating the meat kill e coli) was submitted for approval to the FDA, it was a proven technology that was approved earlier for wheat. Yet the FDA took 3 years to approve it.

    and if the FDA had immediatly approved irradiation you would have been screaming about how reckless they were. It's nice to be able to talk out both sides of your mouth and other orifices.

    No, you failed to show a correlation of safety agencies to a decline in accidents.

    Oh yes, the famous when did you stop beating you wife correlation. Prove that there is a correlation between technology and safety then. Laws were passed, technology advanced. Prove only one had an effect. Other than the core conservatism believe it's rue because I believe it should be true.

    indigenous says

    same answer, if the customer gets sick they quit buying.

    Oh, and how does the "customer" relate being sick to bad meat, as opposed to bad veggies, bad eggs, bad salad dressing, bad water, bad coworkers, or just door knobs they touched?

    indigenous says

    I guess I'm going a little fast for you, I'm saying the FDA is a pretend agency that does not do their job. We would be better off with something like consumer reports that does this function.

    Oh wonderful, that's perfect. So the drug companies will just produce whatever they want and consumer reports will lell us know how they wok out afterwards. Sorry about that, you died before we reviewed that drug. CR will tell us which food producers are selling e coli loaded meat and veggies so we can avoid buying them? What a great idea. After all the producers of foods are so clearly labelled on every pieces of meat and every vegetable and every fruit. Oh wait, there will have to be a law requiring that? Wouldn't that go against being a libertarian?

    So all that ranting and raving about the FDA not doing anything about tobacco advertising means you weren't saying they should do something? The FDA didn't have any authority over tobacco at all until 2009, thanks to southern conservative lawmakers fighting tooth and nail for big tobacco

    So you are saying that the conservative principal of fighting at every step of the way to help big tobacco is a fine and upstanding goal, but the FDA failing to ban tobacco advertising the second it had the authority is a great liberal failing. Yes you do have zero credibility.

    Yes and who were the D's in 1866 south of the mason dixon line? Conservatives. Who were the D's in 1965 south of the mason dixon line when the civil rights act passed. Conservatives. The title of YOUR post? 5 CONSERVATIVE principles. Don't duck the fact that one of the bedrocks principles for conservatives for well over 100 years (and continuing today in many places) was racism.

    From your article:

    "Largely independent changes in technology and labor markets also contributed to safety as well."

    Absolutely. Unlike someone as intellectually dishonest as you I recognize that there are many factors. I certainly didn't say safety laws were the ONLY reason safety improved. I said laws improve worker safety long before OSHA. Laws that were on the books and being enforced during the entire period of your disingenuous chart. You are the one saying OSHA was the start of safety laws.

    indigenous says

    Do you suppose there was any chance that people would have said hmm this meat is tainted and green and makes me sick and would have just said I'm not buying your meat anymore?

    You either are unaware that ecoli and other products of unsanitary meat handling are tasteless or you are just being dishonest again. I choose the latter.

    indigenous says

    Currently we have had the FDA doing nothing about cigarette advertising at all and only after an informer turned them in was anything done. The FDA is feeble and probably in bed with the cronies like Phillip Morris and Eli Lilly. Watch the the Michael Moore video it is only 5 minutes. Where the fuck is the FDA on that matter? I would guess bought off because they are a pretend agency.

    WTF happened to all your libertarian principles? You are now saying the FDA doesn't do enough regulation? Libertarians believe in no regulation at all. Let the free market and informed consumers sort it out. Which are you?

    There were TWO sodium cooling loops, the intermediate one was the one that interfaced with water. A breech would have left the primary sodium loop intact. Due to the high thermal conductivity of sodium (about 100x that of water) which makes the entire primary loop pretty good cooling fin.

    So that's why the paper, whatever it is, talks about challenges to the structural integrity of the reactor and the critical mass of melted fuel. Because the primary loop will be intact and cool the core. I see. So was this theoretical safe breeder reactor ever built? Let me guess, it was so safe that it was 100% insured by private insurance, the AEC didn't have to insure it at all. Not.

    That all depends on distance doesn't it? An M80 ignited next to your head will kill you instantly while even a Tsar Bomba a few thousand miles away will just rock you to sleep.
