Except people who commit crimes don't really care all that much about the punishment. Harsher sentences don't lead to reduction in crime. Criminals are the kinds of people who think, "Hey, what's the punishment for killing somebody?"
You're a very broken person, but I suspect you know this.
Even when it involves being jerks, Americans think they're unique.
"Well, those clowns in congress did it again! What a bunch of clowns!"

Isn't it the big two? Android or iPhone? So why not just get a Nexus 4 or 5, unlocked, nice and cheap? Root it, and you're done.
The definition of gaming as a hobby is not, "Gaming where ever, whenever you like, however you like."
Or Greeks, I guess? Or the tons of other countries in which octopus is not an exotic food?
