Add that to the long list of other things you don't know.

LOL. Care to make it interesting? Unlike most assholes here, I don't just say shit to make myself feel good, I'll back it up with cash. Care to wager some money that the GOP will take the White House in 2 years?

In a normal world, your argument would be persuasive. But since the GOP has spent the last 30 years jumping every shark they can get, the problem isn't whether Dems can win 2016, it's the whether the GOP can untangle itself from the crazy long enough to not scare off most "independent" voters.

Cars just don't have the same totemistic mystique.

And much more complicated to operate.

we're talking about idiot parents here, and it's a blessing that the result wasn't more tragic

There's a joke that's been circulating in liberal circles for the past few years that posits that Obama should come out publicly in favour of some kind of basic but necessary human activity, such as breathing or eating, the punchline being that Republicans will then immediately come against it and suffer the obvious consequences.

So, over the weekend, Obama came out strongly in favour of getting your kids vaccinated.

I know the article says that these companies can't afford to ignore china

Well, big companies, like MS, Apple, Oracle, etc.

When you run a small (or more local) business, one of the nice things is being able to avoid certain markets and customers. In fact, unless your future growth (and corresponding funding) aren't a lock, you have to avoid them because all they'll do is destroy your business.

So if the big boys have to jump through ridiculous hoops in order to keep those profit margins sky-high, fuck 'em. That's how the game works.
