    [–] Government of California wont rule out launching their own climate satellite if access to NASA Climate data is restricted. Looking to "preempt" any action by Trump administration. PM_me_Venn_diagrams 25 points ago in space

    I believe the plan would be simply to pay the existing US space companies from California to privately develop a replacement and just launch that.

    California basically already has every resource it requires, its simply a matter of writing a check to the companies that already produce them.

    I guess thats the advantage of being California.

    I actually recall reading a statement by one of the Democratic leaders that they wouldn't have Mercy and that they COULDN'T even if they wanted to, because they had no authority to do so without a majority in congress.

    I can remember the guys face, but cant recall his name.

    I know over in California the leadership is going absolutely ballistic. California pays huge amounts to help the rest of the country and they are absolutely irate about essentially being backstabbed.

    It would not surprise me if other members of the Democratic party believed the same.

    Former commercial driving instructor here. This is complete BS. Your STATE prohibited it. Not the EPA.

    Just as Republicans intentionally interfered with Obamacare/ACA, they also do the same for EPA regs. They do this specifically to make the citizens of Republican states hate the government.

    Ive seen anything you can think of legally converted to use CNG. from a Ford Ranger up to an 105,000lb Class 8 double hauling twin 53 foot trailers.

    The states are the ones who set the laws, the EPA only sets standards that must be complied with unless the states want to lose funding.

    Yes, but California also pays a $50 Billion surplus more than it takes in taxes, which greatly counters any help it may ever require.

    California also was only responsible for a very small fraction of the fraudulent mortgages, while Florida and Texas mortgage brokers accounted for more fraud than the entire rest of the country combined. There were HUNDREDS of mortgage brokers jailed in those states for falsifying income information on paperwork.

    Bullshit. Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania have had a Republican majority in their state houses for over 30 years now.

    According to the first article the Republican states are 14.9 out of 50 places worse than Democratic states on average.

    That includes Republican states who voted for Obama. If those states were counted as actual Republican states, the Republican states average would be even worse.

    If you want to nitpick the details, so can the rest of us.

    From his behavior, he could just be another retarded person like the guy who shot up Port Arthur and killed 35 people.

    I had a family member who was a powerlifting coach, and some genius thought it would be a good idea to get retarded people into powerlifting. I have never been so terrified of a retarded person in my life.

    Who gives these people guns and drivers licenses and knives and shit?

    Until then, would you kindly please stop spamming this bullshit? Thank you.

    Yep, actually he often goes on Fox news and opposes the very party he claims to be a part of.

    Republicans have gone so low in the last 4-8 years, it wouldnt surprise me in the least if they registered as Democrats to harm the party from within.

    [–] "If Sheriff Clarke were to really harass you, you wouldn't be around to whine about it." PM_me_Venn_diagrams 10 points ago in news

    Hes one of these people who registers for one political party, but then goes on the news stations for the opponents and backs them up. Nothing says honest like pretending to be from one political party but exclusively supporting the other.

    Real honest guy we have here.

    [–] The Secret Service says a vehicle in a motorcade for Vice President-elect Mike Pence struck a D.C. police reserve officer. PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago in news

    The source is the governor himself, you fucking idiot. How fucking stupid do you people have to be that even the very person admitting to it isnt good enough evidence?

    God damn you people are fucking dense sometimes. Just absolutely mind blowing level of ignorant.

    You people didnt even require ANY proof if the claims were against anyone else, yet now there isnt a source in the world that is good enough for you.

    Go sit in the fucking corner until you've decided to act like an adult.

    Well, somebody else already posted a source, so it turned out they were telling the truth.

    So who is the hypocrite here? You arent in a place to be talking down to anybody else.

    [–] Nobody ‘stealing’ your jobs, you spend too much on wars, Alibaba founder tells US PM_me_Venn_diagrams 3 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in worldnews

    Well for 6 times the goddamn price and twice the working hours, they damn sure should.

    What is even more infuriating is that when the housing bubble was going, I saw boomers making 50-90 grand a year flipping homes, and making HUGE amounts of money doing contractor work.

    And I dont think a single one of them saved a dollar of it. Every single one went broke. They complain about how Obama should get them jobs, well... they shouldnt have wasted all that money like a bunch of idiots.

    Now the millennials are supposed to pay taxes and trillions of dollars in loans so that the boomers can get new jobs and welfare? Are you shitting me? But millennials spending their own tax money and taking out their own loans to help themselves is immoral somehow. Right.

    You know, as hard as these terrorists try, it must be embarrassing that they still havent been able to surpass the retarded kid that killed 35 people at Port Authur.

    The terrorists are literally less intelligent than a retarded kid. Let that sink in.

    [–] Someone Posted a School Bus conversion. found this at /r/osha PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago in Hookit

    I believe those are dayton split rims, they are the devil and you should avoid them at all costs.

    Remember that soldier from that Michael Moore film who had this hands blown off in Iraq? His hands got blown off from a split rim he unscrewed without deflating the tire. It tore his hands off when the air pressure shot the rim out.

    The larger split rims on construction equipment can instantaneously kill you if you start to open them without releasing pressure first. In one case an excavator tire killed a worker by smashing him against an F-250 and it actually partially folded the truck sideways from the impact.

    [–] Tow Truck Operator's POV On What It Takes To Get a Warner Driver Out Of Mud (Its 20~ mins long) PM_me_Venn_diagrams 5 points ago in Trucking

    Former Werner trainer here. They actually arent a bad company, but their safety and dispatch departments have very very little idea of what they are doing and hire based on very shallow perceptions of who a good worker is. Problems do not get solved by people who are unwilling to speak up.

    Ive talked to the executives many times and they are all very intelligent people who know and care about what they are doing, but it all gets lost because the low level people have absolutely no damn idea how to do their jobs.

    That said, they really need to stop hiring people who have almost no experience even driving cars. I cant tell you how many people Ive talked to whos only experience was a few hours a driving a year because they lived in the city. That is completely unacceptable for somebody who is about to learn to drive a truck.

    Ive gotten people from Africa who never drove in their lives before they moved to America, and could barely operate a car. Why are these people even considered at all? EVERY DAMN ONE OF THEM GETS IN A WRECK.

    I get it, you cant discriminate and you also need to get as many drivers as possible, but hiring absolutely completely unqualified people is NOT the answer.

    For every one of these people you hire, you lose a trainer. This is why I stopped training. After the second one I got such bad PTSD that I was ready to throw up just sitting in the passenger seat. It took me years to be able to trust other drivers again.

    For the love of God, if you are going to hire these people, at least have a special course that teaches them the very basics of having personal safety standards.
