I think an analogy is the best way to describe how flawed the current electronic system is.
Let's say that Microsoft Word is the Electronic Voting Machine.
And a hand written paper letter is the paper ballot method.
Suppose there is a small election of 200 votes and a hacker/theif manages to steal the copies of the votes. If he stole them electronically (Microsoft Word) by hacking it would be enticingly easy to be able to change, delete, or copy the information because locating where it is via computer is a simple as just typing the word and hitting the search button.
Now suppose the paper letters/votes are stolen by physical theft and now the theif has to read through each individual paper and look manually for the information he wants to change and somehow match each unique handwriting style from his own and making each piece of paper look as it hadn't been tampered with. This is a long, harsh, and tedious process that hardly can be done.
The average person and by average I mean most people aren't interested or educated into technology and software to a professional degree. Speaking as a person who has come to familiar terms with hacking and software, any type of electronically configured device can be tampered into much more conveintly with less of a trace compared to paper.
The "just fix them and change them so it's easier" idea comes from the same people who hit "I accept" instantly to an apps terms when installing it, rather than reading that they just accepted a flashlight app has permission to monitor your network history.
Sarcasm, Paulius. You can read between the lines on it. If I get around to it, I might publish some more stuff related to the film incentives piece on my tumblr - and it touches on the bizarre disconnect between what "Libertarians" say they believe and what they actually do.
But, for the most part, the whole concept of Libertarian ideology is sort of "every person for themselves", which runs completely counter to almost every tactic they use to achieve that goal. It's almost as if they understand that the entire notion is completely unworkable.
I guess gay youths will continue to get all of their irrational attitudes of submission to authority from schools and sports.
How so, mat?
Brewengineer, though the other commenter certainly showed his ass, your review really could use work. I say that because you're bashing them about things you don't even understand. I frequent that establishment since opening. Firstly, their beer menu is not at all broken into flavor profiles. They're categorized in 4, not 5 sections; ipa, locals, sessionables, and "mash". The mash is just one offs and specialties that didn't fit into the other 3. There is no "malt forward" section that you described so there goes all that griping you had about them not fitting out the window.
Secondly, that sandwich you had is called a croque-madame. It's an old French dish and meant to be eaten with fork and knife.
Basically, your negativity in the review stems from your own misunderstandings and lack of knowledge.
If BSA National signs off on this gay is ok until adulthood it will be progress. But will fall short of the need for a complete ban on discrimination for gay scout masters as well as scouts.
How not shocking that local Scout troops think we pose a demonic threat to children.
It's 2013 local Scoutmasters,, even in SC. Some of these kids are gay or will have gay friends,neighbors,teachers, co-workers or bosses etc etc. Can't lock them in the basement the rest of their lives.
Funny, The Girl Scouts have never banned anyone,so that org is immoral and depraved too?
Wow, this is a totally shocking result. Wait, I mean "predictable," not "shocking." If BSA wants to stick to their guns on this issue, more power to them; they're a private organization and they need to do right by the actual members.
I was a scout for 10 years and worked at scout camp for three, and I'm troubled by this new holy-roller version of the BSA. It pains me to think that I can't send my son to learn about knot-tying, camping, hiking, first aid, and all the other self-reliance skills that BSA is built on without subjecting him to a bunch of gay-bashing and bible-thumping. But if that's what BSA is all about now, then that's what they're about. They've made their lean-to and will have to lie under it.
"We had this image of a tandem bike, with a man and woman riding this old school tandem bike with early 1900s clothing on this highwire, and it just sort of hit,"
These youth organizations are already splintering into different groups. There is a religious based scout like organization which is rapidly growing, a conservative scouting movement and, I would guess somewhere, a liberal program of some sort. The contest which matters will end up between the traditional scouting movement and the religious youth programs. The big mega churches prefer to do everything in house and on their own budgets.
Oh, Sark, you should know by now that the everything after the first five graphs was nothing more than a reason to write the first five.
Well if anyone should appreciate second chances it would be you...Tara.
You got hired down here after that hideously racist and homophobic cartoon you released back in NC.
But no,it's everyone against you based on your " reverse racism conservative persecution complex".
Poor Tara. You simply radiate oppression, how do you survive the day?
It started in Italy. Thus the name. http://www.festivaldispoleto.com/
What would we have lost if Chris has cut out the first five paragraphs of this column?
Will any of them make a Salted Caramel Whiskey? That's what I want.
"But, vendors, make it affordable, please."
The local retailers sell beer at a small mark-up, which is fairly reasonable compared to the distribution mark-up. The local guys also carry more varieties of local and general craft beer, which is something Sunoco will never have.
"Our local beer breweries have not done that yet. So why go to the brewery, and then pay the same as at a grocery store?"
This is not a fault of the brewery. You need to research state law.
(5) the brewery must sell the beer at the licensed premises at a price approximating retail prices generally charged for identical beverages in the county where the licensed premises are located; and
The breweries would love to sell at a discounted rate, but are required to match retail prices. You can thank the large distributors for lobbying in a way to get that in the books. Anyways, the HB 4572 was a game changer for breweries in the state and very beneficial to the craft beer market.
"I just hope those distilleries on King have better success rate than all the micro breweries we had downtown many years ago. Not many have survived."
Huh? Palmetto Brewery is in the peninsula (in the ghettoish part) and has been thriving since 1993. Southend, despite the fact that their beer isn't a favorite of craft beer lovers, has been pumping out brew for well over a decade. Are you talking about T-Bonez brewpub thing? Most would agree that if you don't make good beer, it will be hard to survive as a brewery. In the ever growing craft beer market, there is plenty of room for more brewpubs in this area. I have no doubt they will survive if the product is good. Just like these distilleries.
Can't wait for this piece of shit to come down.
I talked to an employee at a local Sunoco, and he said each station now has a "beer supervisor" who's main job is to keep the growler stations full and fresh. He gets a few more bucks to be trained and in charge, and takes the responsibilities away from other managers. This will make for consistency in quality and, as you said, sanitizing of growler bottles which can grow some unique cultures when left out in the sun. In any case, buy local and support locals whenever possible. But, vendors, make it affordable, please.
"Sunoco and their Craft Brew stations"
Or you could support local businesses that sell these same beers in growler and bottle form. The local guys also do a better job of sanitizing your bottles and keeping their beer lines clean. Just a tip if you prefer buying local and getting better quality.
"Regulation and censorship are two entirely different concepts."
Is censorship not a way to regulate the things that we watch?
Control or supervise (something, esp. a company or business activity) by means of rules and regulations
Within censorship lies rules the broadcasters must adhere to. The reason the rules are there is to regulate content broadcasted. Maybe we are just off subject at this point.
