It's the fault of the administrators to begin with. I am friends with one of the technical advisors for the midwest EOC and the problem is that the administrators dont know their ass from a hole in the ground and ignore their tech guys and listen to the vendors.

He has been screaming for all call centers to have analog failover, but the administrators refuse to hear it.

So who is to blame for the failures? That top moron of Homeland security. IT would have been in place if he would realize that he is not an expert and to actually LISTEN to the experts in the field.

IT will be, it will probably be as horrific as the LG, Motorola and Samsung crap.

If the Watch can not do 2-3 days on a charge , it is a complete and utter fail.
If the watch does not have an open API so apps can easily be written for it, it is a complete and utter fail.
And honestly, from what we have seen from Microsoft for mobile devices over the past 3 years, it will be a complete and utter fail.

Flat tax simplifies it greatly.

10% with zero deductions or credits. You dont even need to file taxes unless you are self employed and you should have been doing it quarterly like you have to now.

April 15th becomes nothing but another day in april as nobody has to file anything except for the rich that also pay 10% on all dividend income, all stock income, etc....
