As long as Samsung makes enough money to stay in business and continue selling phones, their customers should be happy to get 'the latest stuff' while Apple trails behind.

Unless you're a hooker who works out of a hotel in Cupertino, or an Apple employee, it's just weird to be so elated that Apple sells a trailing edge product at a jacked up price.

Only a sucker buys products from a company that boasts of a high markup on their products.

It's just weird when people come on here praising Apple, as consumers of Apple products, with this as one of the 'virtues' they prize.

Is there some sort of secret form of self esteem boost that comes of proudly proclaiming that you are a sucker for a company?

Because nothing says "religious freedom" like denying other people health care.

Nothing says freedom more than not being forced to pay for other people's 'stuff.'

We all get to die. It's sorta mandatory. How we die is for the most part dependent on our behavior and choices we make, with some chance thrown in there.

How expensive we can make it on the others around us when we are dying is a matter of how much we can coerce other people into spending on us.

The United States at it's zenith, would be called a socialist quagmire by persent day politicians.

What you refer to as 'at it's zenith' is probably that short post-WWII period when the rest of the world had been leveled by war and the US was the only remaining industrial power, correct? Yes, we could 'afford' 90% income taxes on some of the most productive people during that period, because the whole world economy was sort of loony.
