Except that is completely wrong. Fraud and theft are illegal in free market capitalism. Rape and murder are illegal too.

Why does everyone think they understand and are qualified to speak about and criticize economic systems when they have only the barest idea of what the words even mean, much less the history and principles behind them?

So basically, they're saying "the land of the free and the home of the brave" should sacrifice our fundamental liberties and allow the government to ignore the constitution to keep us safe. Why don't they just move to North Korea? It has everything they want.

We're all too damned terrified to be brave, so you need to make us non-free, so we can be safe11!!1!11!111eleventy!1!!!

Oh, say can you see
by the dawn's early light.
The terrified people
the government begging.

Oh, please keep us safe
from the big bad meanies
Who you keep on saying
they all want to kill us.

And the rocket's red glare
the bombs bursting in air
We've all never seen them
but you say ISIS has them.

They have AC power. Since these things are spaced at roughly 250ft, they don't all need to be connected to gigabit. I'm sure they could work out some kind of a mesh network. On the other hand, regular WiFi is very saturated in NYC. I wish them luck.

That's the job. Many of my trine es go on to supervise or plan such jobs. They leave me with no doubt of the drain they put on people. And, in my experience they remember, and fight a corner for 24x7 experienced cover. But if the people aren't there to hire, and the bed space isn't available ... then at least they understand the problems of the (person)in the field better. It's not perfect, but it's better than nothing.

The biggest mistake you can make is to believe that you are working for someone else.
