They are very identical in one VERY IMPORTANT way: They'll both push their agenda of the day, but in the end, they'll keep ignoring the real problems and protecting their benefactors (which is a part of the real problem) along with distributing the money to friends, family and allies.

And there's nothing you can do about it.

In that way, they are identical. Now, their agenda du jour... in the end is pretty much irrelevant. Your so called health insurance, we have it in France since about 65 years now. It's 2B€ in debt every fucking year. And there is only 60 millions of us. Because of it, more and more people are poor because it consumes so much wealth. Trade healthcare vs poverty. This is what it will become. The government is inefficient to a point where this will become the number one money gobbler in the US. Just give it time. The system doesn't even have enough money anymore over here to provide decent reimbursement. We have to take extra insurance if we don't want to pay for everything except for aspirin.

And don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about because I'm French. We have the very exact same bunch over here. I'd like to think ours are worse, but that's just because I'm French and I (obviously) am the center of the world.

My wife is a teacher and she uses an "interactive board" and it really helps. She can prepare stuff in advance (do that with a chalkboard) move stuff around the board (do that with a chalkboard) show Wikipedia, youtube, anything in just an alt-tab (do that with a chalkboard). When she brings a student to the board do do something, she can them replay it (...)

Well, you get the point. An interactive board is much more than a chalkboard on steroids.

Top Ten Things Overheard At The ANSI C Draft Committee Meetings: (7) Well, it's an excellent idea, but it would make the compilers too hard to write.
