Comment Re:America has been put in a bad position. (Score 2) 571

The problem is that Americans think their problems are a result of immigration. The issue is nothing more than a convenient political scapegoat that populists are all but desperate to eat up as it appears to legitimize their xenophobia and present a simple, or at least theoretically attainable, goal. A goal which is a solution for nothing, but a goal none-the-less. When folks have socially unacceptable attitudes, they are easily led to believe they are part of the "real talk" truth - as if they are somehow inherently mature or realist. It's the same reason why nutjobs fell into the 9/11 truther bullshit. It's nothing but a dog and pony show for the middle class so that they don't tune into the real problems America faces.

That's a neat trick there were you chose the most expensive installation. A few posts here have already said it only cost them 200$ (presumably the "no-complications" price.) 200$ one-time + 45$ a month is a drop in the bucket for AirBnB houses than regularly make 4k+ a month. Explain to me how that's not worth it on the whim alone. And that's 45$ on somebody who probably favored renting your place because of the charger if it's being used. If nobody bites, 200$. That's peanuts.

Well that's a stupid example. The PS4 SDK and toolchain is Windows only. In fact, every game that you run on PS4/XBone/Nintendo platforms is developed in Windows. (To say nothing of the art tools used to make these games, many of which are also Windows only.)

Genius is ten percent inspiration and fifty percent capital gains.
