knowing he had already lied to Congress to protect the NSA.
Are you sure he's that aware?
Apple represents a freaking quarter of the US economy.
Uh, math is hard for you or something?
Why again are we still supposed to use the ballot box instead of the bullet box?

maybe we should think about stupid regulation versus smart regulation
YES thankyou for saying this, you are amazing. Everytime I hear someone engaging in an argument saying, "regulation is bad!" "no, regulation is good!"

Minecraft just reach 54 million across all platforms.
