Negative. But of course, you studied American Constitutional Law in College.

You don't need to have studied US constitutional law to know that the RFRA is not part of the constitution but is simply a federal law that applies to other federal law. The kind of law congress can adapt, expand, decrease or amend in any way it likes. Of course, the SCOTUS can later on decide that what congress did in some other way is unconstitutional, but the act of changing aspects of the RFRA is not unconstitutional.

Constitutional (SCOTUS) Decisions effect's EVERY Law. Past/Present/Future. RFRA included.

Yes. One does need to study US Constitutional Law.



All law has standing until the SCOTUS deems it unconstitutional this decision now has standing in law but any change in the law or new law may render this standing obsolete, because the decision of the SCOTUS was based on particulars that can no longer happen or are no longer there.

Perhaps that how it works in Europe. Not The US.

Then do tell, how does it work in the US? Does congress not have the power to update, remove or amend laws?

Not Constitutional Issue's (SCOTUS Decision's).

The US Constitution must be Amended.



Congress can change either the law in question or other law to render the decision moot though the precedent remains.

I'm not familiar with that case but it most likely was a technicality, like overturning the "net neutrality" rules. Congress can't make a law telling the family who ownes Hobby Lobby what they should believe.

You should read what this bill actually does. It does not tell the Hobby Lobby owners what to believe, it amends or specifies in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that for profit organizations cannot use it to claim religious exemption. This way it would not overrule the SCOTUS decision because that ruling was based on the current interpretation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. By changing what that act does, they simply make the SCOTUS decision obsolete.

Perhaps that how it works in Europe. Not The US.



Actually it does work that way in the US.

I learned that in 7th grade government class.

the argument of when life starts
The sperm and egg are alive the question is when do they become human.
For example, in 1986 the Supreme Court ruled that a federal civil rights law that protected people with disabilities from discrimination did not apply to the airline industry.
I'm not familiar with that case but it most likely was a technicality, like overturning the "net neutrality" rules. Congress can't make a law telling the family who ownes Hobby Lobby what they should believe.

Are you suggesting the thought police should be legal? This is all academic because the Republicans will control both houses in January.



no the government cant and shouldn't even try to tell anyone what to believe but they can and should make perfectly clear where their rights end and other peoples rights begin

i have read that the owners of hobby lobby start all managerial meetings with a prayer that is not them exercising their right to practice it is a blatant attempt to force their employees to to practice the same

they are a for profit business as such they cannot discriminate in their hiring practices based on religion and forcing their employees to involve themselves in their prayers or involve their employees in their religious practices such as not taking day after pills.

Global warming/climate change is a made up deal to make the super rich richer! Look to your God Al Gore! See him cut back yet? DAMN! Wake up!

=========================================================
First it does not matter if it gets hotter or cooler changing weather is bad first.

while seeing the sahara desert arable again as it has been in the past may be niece.

The disruption to farms and the raising of livestock will cause great hardship.

So what should be done? The planetary weather is undeniably changing this is

nothing new weather changes. As recently as the 1850's there was an ice age.

So understanding and possibly changing weather is important.

Next fossil fuels have been important only because they where cheap this is no longer so.

And only three things can be done now or soon to replace it.

1)tidal power it is much more concentrated than wind and more predictable.

but it has the downside of having to be so large that it too will affect weather.

2) Thorium cycle nuclear reactors the good news here is that they can burn the

nuclear waste from current fast breeder reactors that we now use and they will

burn the other 98% of the nuclear material that is not used in current reactors.

the bad news is that while it is much safer than current designs it is still

nuclear and will be hard to sell although it is about the only way rapidly

reduce the radioactivity of the waste we now have.

3) Fusion the Skunkworks at Northrop Aviation says that they can have a

100 megawatt prototype by 2017 and a production line within ten years of that.

with adequate cheap power the pollution can be cleaned up and everyone can have an American life style.

The SCOTUS didn't disagree with me. They in fact agreed with me, got there by different means but never the less agreed. You won't convince others who disagree with your viewpoint, the law has spoken, why don't you quit posting on this subject. You are going nowhere with this, move on.

Nope. Roe vs Wade has not been overturned, and SCOTUS so far has never said that life begins at conception and that a clump of cells therefor has the same rights as a human being.

Jan 22nd 1973.

Come-on, get with the times! Science has changed! We know more and have come to the understanding that once the potentional has been met with the resulting zygote we have a unique human being..., ...will be the argument in the SCOTUS.

========================================================

you are right we do know a lot more now,but this harly buttisous your case.

we now have a much better understanding of all the things that can go wrong in

the early stages after fertilization to cause an egg to become unviable yet you

maintain that this is an individual, if any one really believed as you,

regardless of fatal flaws, extraordinary means would have to be used to save

each and every one,there would be no other moral choice. the over population

this would soon cause would be catastrophic when you make these ludicrous

stances think through the consequences.

Congress can thereby render the court's interpretation obsolete, either by passing a new law or amending the old law to better achieve its original intent.
If they did that the new law would be struck down 9-0. Anyway congress knows better than to try it as it would lead to a "constitutional crises".


==============================================================
Congress can't eliminate court precedent. While Congress may pass a new law that changes the impact of the court's decision, the precedent remains in effect. For example, in 1986 the Supreme Court ruled that a federal civil rights law that protected people with disabilities from discrimination did not apply to the airline industry. However, Congress meant for that law to apply to airlines. Congress responded to the decision by passing a new law, the Air Carrier Access Act, that applied specifically to air travel. While this had the effect of protecting the rights of disabled people traveling by air, it didn't overturn the court's decision. The earlier law still doesn't apply to the airline industry.
===================================================================

as you can see it has happened before without causing a constitutional crisis
it will happen again it is part and parcel of the checks and balances that our constitution was created with

United States Constitution wrote:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."


translation...

Congress, shall not establish a Faith at the federal level, or disallow a state to have theirs, the federal government shall not disallow any individual the right to speak and address congress and the same applies to the press, the people have the right to join together in any form they seem to want or need, and the one as well as a whole state can fully address the federal government to make or remove laws as seen fit by the people or group of people.

Do I believe a group of people are one person? No. Do I agree with laws that allow a corp to say it's a person? No.

Do I agree a group of like minded people can band together and make a law? Yes. Do I agree with a laws that allow a group of people to band together and make a allow? Yes.

I have been very clear as to what a human being is and is not. A person is a person from conseption to natural death.

Your B*llsh!t arguments and putting words into my mouth that I did not use is just what I have stated, B*llsh!t... Hollow arguments with no logic and the placing of bad ethics along with poor science is the topping on this roadapple pie you have all made. The Causal Agent always shockes me with new people that have the art of stacking sh!t higher and higher. I assume there is a limit of this stacking but as of yet I see no end.

Where the left goes wrong with this wacky logic is how to define what life is. It must to the far left look like a human. They banter the word racism all the time but are racist to life itself, you must look human to be human, racism of HUMAN LIFE, because of LOOKS?!!

The right goes wrong by putting that human life at risk for no reason. With no regard for rule of law, we have national interests overseas that we must attend to by killing others for our cause of exporting our ideals, of, rule of law! LMAO! Yes, bin laden needed lead to the head, no doubt. But it would have been better off for all of us if we did it like the IDF after the olympic killings of the Jewish people. We have NO INTEREST overseas other then free and open trade, our first president was very clear about this with his goodbye speech after his second shot at the big seat. Follow your founders and you wont go wrong as many times as we have of late...

So, here I am once again in the center, clingging onto life and what a life is. I'm center, you are either left or right of me but you for sure are not center with me. I don't go for the shell game, or three card monty. I go for the sure bet everytime. I make no mistake when life matters. I side with life and that makes me center and you with the wacky ethics of either side, on the wrong side of the argument. Try morals, look into your heart, the morals you was born with. And don't give in to bad science and ethics of the day.



the argument of when life starts is one of the oldest arguments in human history. it is not going to be decided in this thread. your view is contrary to nature or if you prefer casual agents design since over 70% of fertilized eggs are never implanted in the uterine wall or are at least naturally miscarried during the next menstrual cycle.

you are saying that we are either in left field or right field while you are center field. the problem with that is that you are playing baseball when everyone else is playing football.

as to you mistranslating the first amendment it was purposely written in plain english that anyone with a 5th grade reading skill would not miss interpret it.
your translation left out any thing having to do with the "free practice of"
why is that?

The Supreme Court holds the power to interpret laws and declare them unconstitutional under the principle of judicial review. While Congress doesn't technically have the power to overrule a Supreme Court decision, it can take actions to lessen, or even negate, the effect of a court ruling. Congress can thereby render the court's interpretation obsolete, either by passing a new law or amending the old law to better achieve its original intent.

Posted 63 days ago by Profile dancer42
I have looked at building seti boxes around the a10 though cost and heat have made me consider the a6.

Having run a 8150 for sum time made it clear to to me that to put these

multi core processors under any real load and the factory cooler have trouble

keeping up.

The whole idea of building seti boxes was to build driverless mini towers

that would network boot with 2 mid range video cards with standard coolers for

both cards and apu's as the aftermarket cooler quickly came to the price of

another box and overclocking was just not a good bang for buck trade.

I will need motherboard's and apu's for the first 2 for which I already have

the other parts and video cards. After that I will try to build for about 400 dollars a box.

I will post back here after the first build.

Posted 63 days ago by Profile dancer42
the 5670 like the 5590 had 400 compute core and uses very little power

you won't set records but this is enough card to begin the slow climb to the top.

especially if you can run 2 or more. these cards are mostly pci will run in a

machine with 550 watts or less power supply and three will slightly outperform or

at least be close to an hd6870 which can run 2 tflop's.

so if you can find someone to give you an older machine, even if you dumpster

dive or curb surf to find a couple, this can be a path to the

start of respectable numbers.

I have found the 5590 on ebay for about 25 to 30 dollars I Would offer something like that for the 5670.

Posted 64 days ago by Profile dancer42
All laptops by the vary nature of their design run hotter than is optimal for the

longest life of their hardware so even if you do not crunch any cooling you

provide will add to the life expectancy of your laptop.

Also there are several good temp. monitoring software packages available that can

throttle the cpu and gpu if they get too hot, I highly recommend using one.

Bare in mind that if the software crashes it can not throttle so checking once in

a while to see if it is too hot is not a bad idea.

As to laptop gpu's and crunching some can and some can't for ati ant chipset

5590 or later should work, intel driver have recently become available don't

know how many of them can now be used you will have to check by chipset number

do not know about nvidia once again must check by chipset number.

go luck, my current laptop is very weak but still doing between 70 and 90 rac per day.

Posted 64 days ago by Profile dancer42
In a teacup net-neutrality is about controlling content.

If I control the price of access I control what you access.

having the internet turned into a junkyard by everyone with something to sell or

say I can live with.

This is what filters are for.

AS to alternatives to the isp's I highly encourage this the internet works best

when information flows around any blockage.

you may be right in that letting the current isp's kill the current internet can

speed the adoption of other more robust means of communication.

It just seems a lot easier to try to save what we have now.

as you say in the end it will make no difference information will flow regardless.

Posted 64 days ago by Profile dancer42
The bottom line is this is not about cost ,but about access if the isp's can

charge the content providers they control access.

If they so choose at that point the only person that may be allowed to afford to

provide content may be the guy with the dancing cat videos.

that is why this is so important.

the ACA was a law passed by congress as such since the SCOTUS made an exception for religious reasons in the hobby lobby case, they are stating that the law is prohibiting the free practice of religion.
