...some boilerplate garbage cut and pasted from stackoverflow.

Is the text still available on Stackoverflow following the paste operation?

Then you meant "copied and pasted". Not quite the same thing. You should use the one that actually means what you apparently want to say.

A "cut" on a non-editable item equals a copy, so I suppose to be pedantically correct, I should have said "copied".

And how many of these require congress? The executive's job is to execute the laws. He can pass or veto a bill but he can't write them. He can choose how to execute the law, what laws to prioritize or not but his power is limited.

This is especially true for anything tax or budget related. All spending bills must originate in the house. Ever since he swore the oath of office the Republicans have bent over backwards with fillibuster threats for just about everything, even the stuff they wanted. The healthcare law only passed because there was only a brief window when democrats had a fillibuster-proof majority.

A bipartisan comprehensive immigration bill was passed ages ago in the Senate but what has the republican-led house done on it? Absolutely nothing.

It also doesn't help that a huge percentage of department heads have been blocked because Republicans have used the fillibuster to block many of these appointments, many since Obama began his first term.

The republicans have been up in arms and done everything to prevent him from doing his job out of spite, making constant racist comments about his birth, or that he's Muslim, etc. etc with Fox News blowing the horn for them with crazy conspiracy theories.

The republicans blame the president about illegals and children crossing the border. The border control says they need more agents and more money to better control the problem. The president says to provide more money. The republicans say no more money and continue to blame the president for something that needs funding which must originate in the republican dominated house.

They also are making a fair amount of revenue selling services. For example, my employer had so many problems with Microsoft Sharepoint that they switched to Google Drive. I use both Google and Microsoft's services. Microsoft's (at least Email) leaves a lot to be desired.

Google is also in the transaction business like Paypal and Amazon as well as hosting services.

For another organization I'm looking into Google services now to handle documents and email.

This is provably false. There are certain people, we'll call them rock stars, that you can stick in a room and they'll get a better solution out faster that addresses everything you need versus 100 lines of doesn't work for 20% of the cases code. Sometimes the rock stars do this to existing code with a 1 line mod. It's because they actually take the time to understand the problem and can visualize the system, instead of writing some boilerplate garbage cut and pasted from stackoverflow.

So you go no cable, you're then paying 1 of the 2 telecoms.... That's "better"? They're all equally corrupt, and not even in meaningfully different ways.

As for music, you're fine, as long as you don't publicly perform nor distribute it. If you do wind up doing either, and there's a question of copying, pay the $0.01 cent per performance fee and you're good.

Illegal raids and rumored internal emails, you don't say? So, what you're telling me is that so far the gov is 0, megaupload 2. And they can't even get him to court legally, sounds like a witchhunt to me, much like the piratebay gang that were convicted as accessories to a crime that was never proven.
