Russia gets its quite well. RT is backed up by every remaining news source in the country. Its all 100% controlled from the top down now. Russians are becoming irrelevant as they are almost completely buried in this crap and are scared out of their wits to say anything out of line with it. The Russian church is even on the dole or afraid, they declared the march into Ukraine a holy Crusade. Believe me, Russia does quite get it. The Question is do you.

Please boost my stock, we are out of useful ideas.......

Do you think anyone that needs the internet beamed to them in this crap will be a useful paying customer? The cost of a laden swallow, gripping it by the husk, vs energy costs, repair, maintenance, and insurance will certainly make this in the end, what it appears to be now.

Are you telling me America's Best and Brightest do not want to enter a workforce where you can be insourced/outsourced/right to worked/contract only?? WTH, I'd think that average smart americans would love to get a chance at being outsourced for to another country while he has to sell his house at a loss or hope to get a contract somewhere with 85% travel required.

Perhaps the smartest decided a business degree was simpler, paid more, and had less fail written all over it. I'm certainly not encouraging my kids to get a "I'm a manager degree. " Yea they could probably make more short term in IT for a few years, but having lived through several booms and busts, I'm looking back at the promises and lies. It would have been much easier and cost effective to just take the first management position and work into retirement at the hospital or bank or retail corp or manufacturer or any of the other places I worked at in the past in IT.

Gaming teaches complex problem solving, organizational skills, reading, profanity improvement, socializing on several levels more constant, and its better than wasting time on TV. So if the option was TV then yes gaming is a huge improvement in many cases. If the option is exercising and team sport where you socialize, then its not as good because there is no exercise other than the mind.
Certainly getting a higher level of education trumps all of this, but not everyone is above average.
I'd rather have people gaming vs Drinking and driving. I'd throw in an requirement they should all have a job of some sort, oddly enough I find most older gamers are disabled or X military. Which means they will probably all grow out of it when they run out of food in the basement.

Yea NSA did some shit to American Citizens, but its job is to know/spy on other countries. Because every few years Tanks seem to roll west out of some jackass despots country.
When the crap hits the fan though, I'm sure you will be first in line demanding those same NSA or US gov troops protect you from those Chinese and Russian tanks, troops, sci corp, etc...

If you think trusting the Chinese is a good idea, then you should go back to that school and study up really close what happens in China to average people like yourself.
We spent years building Democracies and some security so our businesses can sell it to the highest bidder for a short term bonus check. Do not look at the US gov to stop this, its been bought and paid for by big interest groups.

Considering we the West and Asia have collapsed basically every decent fishery, do we need to add every native Fish to the list living in the rivers? CA already has issues like this, we can't kill fish and expect there to be any. Silly how that works.

In the end its not the power generation that is the issue, we can do that, its the storage of that energy for when its not abundant, such as Night time in the winter months. Wind isn't consistent enough to guarantee this, so figure out the storage issues and we can move along with clean energy.

Figure out how to transport/store Hydrogen economically and safely. The rest will solve itself.
