The thing is that other countries are likely to continue to appease the Muslims as usual - as the article says even though Pakistan illegally invaded parts of India the US would not allow the Indian army access to the GPS. The only surprise is that India weren't declared Islamophobic for defending themselves, as happens elsewhere in the world.

servers with different sets of data for users from different countries multiplying across the world.

That will work, because we can all trust our own countries not to have bilateral sharing agreements with the US, and the US not to have illicit access to data stored in other countries. Can't we?

I'm usually getting a 10% better fuel economy than what's stated by the manufacturer.

Maybe the people complaining about the numbers should try driving more efficiently?

Driving style makes a lot of difference, but so does the type of journey. My wife only gets 20 odd mpg - but that's because she always drives with a cold engine (kids to school and an occasional shop). It doesn't matter too much on her 3,000 miles a year anyway but it illustrates the point

That means about 1% of the public thought it was worth commenting on. That's not enough to make a lot of waves unless that 1% is planning to make a lot of campaign donations or something.

Or if they are fucking nutters. This is larger than the percentage of Muslims in the USA but look at all the concessions they get.

If any states residents contracted ebola, Id not be surprised if they were from Texas. We're talking about a state that thinks life begins at conception and rainfall will occur if you just pray for it. Its a wild, magical place where homosexuality can be cured but global warming is a hoax. A fantastic wonderland where Texas legislator Jodie Laubenberg thinks rape kits cause abortions and most residents think the president is a secret kenyan. at the end of the day in texas the miracle of life is no more complex than creation science saddleback rides on dinosaurs.

Lets just hope they don't try and cure it by the "laying on of hands".

Kleeneness is next to Godelness.
