The failure of this election (no firm consenus) entirely rests on the supreme court. Whether or not there is or was legal merit a look at the case and a ruling from the supreme court would have brought better clarity to the matter. Texas vs Pennsylvania should have happend and it is a failure of duty on the supreme court.
Indeed. I wonder and it's a bit off topic. Why not couple the electronic vote with a paper copy? You go to your voting place. ID check of course. Go to your booth. Select your e-candidate AND the electronic machine print out a copy of your vote (with some additional mark for traceability). And you give that copy like a traditional bulletin. If the electronic votes match the paper count, you're good. Wouldn't that render any fraud much more complicated? Or is it a stupid idea?
1984 should be mandatory reading for everyone.
I thought it was. / So who should require it, Big Brother?
Philip K Dick seems to be mandatory too and a little bit more relevant than Orwell
Agreed. Ditto Brave New World, Siddhartha and Slaughterhouse Five.
Regaurdless of opinion I will always feel a government should be afraid of the power of the people. Our government should be a reflection of its people and far too long there has been a disconnect between our elected individuals and those who they are meant to represent.
I may be wrong but I think the disconnect is proportional to the amount of corcporate lobbying feeding politicians wallets...
This is what happens when fear becomes your master.
Is purposely lieing about your "bot" problem when reporting your stats for an IPO fraud? If so Reddit will get crushed if anyone investigates... They sweep it under the rug but they most know how bad it is..
Apple should enter the smart windshield market (it doesn't exist yet).. Make an AR windshield that is a hud display. Highlights objects you might want to know about, shows navigation (write lines on the ground), and few other things. Maybe build siri into into it.. Seems like a better step towards auto driving than trying for full auto like everyone else..
Farthest left is total government control. Farthest right is no government control. We do best on the inside of those boundaries.
This has been the hardest year of my life so far. I wonder how many people agree?
I agree with that sentiment. It's been a bad year overall.
Dunno, for me, it has been tough, but a lot of blessings have appeared over the past year. I think I've lived through worse.
the hardest was 2018, when i lost the ability to walk
Look up. Understand God has control of this. Ask for guidance. Look around. See how others are reacting to this situation. Look down. Understand what you can do to make a difference.
In the social media "world" the ones who are the least busy post the most. Hard worker or busy life? Your voice is rarely heard.
If Americans were "obedient" there would be no America.
Crazy is seeing colors when everyone else only sees black and white. Insanity is having words for those colors.
I can write a highly optimized piece of code that runs at 1ms or I can run an extremely readable piece of code that runs at 2 ms. In most cases isn't the correct choice readability > optimization? Prioritizing optimization over readability just means that less and less people can actually maintain my code.
I try to keep it readable for myself while optimizing it as much as possible. I rather add documentation if it becomes unreadable for others.
The results of an election should be conclusive. The fact that they are not means the process did not work. Tighten security. Their should never be holes in the process which allow the possibility of fraud (regaurdless of if fraud took place). In IT you do not build security based on the fact that 99.99% of users are good actors but for the possibility that there is 1 bad actor. Ambiquity is the death democracy.
Fear of death... A conquering force in most peoples lives. In the lives of a follower of Christ death is actually inversed. The world and the believers can never see eye to eye because fundementally fear has less control over us.
death is not the worst thing that may happen
If we never had knowledge of a Shark or that it could attack you. We would swim in the ocean without any fear of an "attack". Of these "ignorant" people the majority would never learn about Sharks because they would never encounter one. If they did, most would not be attacked. Instead we fear the slim possibility of a shark attack that 99.99% of people will never experience. Information is the opposite of power.
