See how easy that was?
" And everything they added to Windows 8.1 was a step backwards."
Based on the success of 7, that's a good thing, right?
... Communism assumed that german factory worker taking up arms to take control of the industrial complex.
Automate stuff and things change.
If you want to conflate communism with anything even remotely similar that is your own business. I wouldn't conflate capitalism with mercantilism. But if you're conflating communism with a "palace economy" then I don't know where to start with that.
Communism as Marx understood it is obsolete. You're going to have to redesign it to suit the new economy. Good luck with that.
- try to learn whatever they're willing to teach
- if it "seems" dumb, tedious, or backwards: don't immediately assume you know better. Instead, assume that you don't have all the information (because likely you DON'T: someone else has very likely tried whatever you're going to suggest many, many times).
- At the end of the day, this is a simple transaction: they are PAYING YOU MONEY to DO something. Odds are, that "something" isn't "check your instagram account" or play "words with friends". Just fix it in your head that you have nothing better to do elsewhere at all, and try to internalize (or pretend) that you really give a shit about how well your task is done.
- you're not a precious snowflake.

Crypto communists are secret communists.
Just people that are communists that say they're not or are vague about it or otherwise misrepresent themselves about their communist political leanings in some way.
You say I'm crazy for bring that up. Okay. But the thing is that most communists aren't upfront about it. I'm not trying to oppress them. However, it is irritating to deal with arguments when they're based on misrepresented objectives.
There are a few tells that communists have. They can't help it. They say certain things or use certain reference sources and... they're red flags. By themselves they don't mean anything. But when you link it to the rest of the argument you can see everything lines up a little too perfectly.
You want to call that crazy? Okay. I call it honest. I could just think these things and play shadow games with these people. But I find it to be boring. I'd rather just call a spade a spade.

Whatever you think about it, Hollywood has already marked this movie as a dud.
Everyone is talking about what a mistake it was and whether Clooney's career is in trouble.

As to Tron, it made a lot of money.
If you're in the business of making movies to make money, then you'll want to make movies that make money.
Do I need to connect these dots?
*gets out sharpie*
It makes a duck.
there is another alternative to jacking up taxes... cut spending. Just saying.
How did your budget balance before the high oil prices? I have to assume the spending level was lower. Why not go back to the old budget adjusted for population?
Absent that... yes, your taxes go up.
Seriously, if someone is running around breaking windows (pun intended) in your neighborhood, they're outed in the local crime report.
If they did it to 1.5 million homes, I'd bloody well expect that yes, they should be identified.
I personally wouldn't object to having them branded, either.
Or, if you're more Adam Smithy, just suspend their ability to file civil lawsuits allowing people to do whatever they want to them that doesn't actually rise to criminal activity.
That was kind of my point as "examples of stupid pop-media MISunderstandings of things that aren't that hard"
I was going to say, "the Tomorrowland that's still in general release?"
To base the overall profitability on the first two weekends and call it a stumble when it made 3/4 of what tron made at the same time (with a huge build up and cult following of the original), while there are several other major summer blockbusters going head to head with it. (note: I haven't seen tomorrowland)
Sounds like an excuse to me. And thank goodness, imho. We definitely don't need another Tron.
Aren't we all smart enough to turn off the adware during install? I even know some old people who turn off "add-ons" that they don't need.
Well, given that adware 'offers' still get injected into installers, I'm going to use my incredible mental thinking skills to hypothesize "no, we aren't".
Aside from that, even if you don't get hit by the adware, having to defang an installer just to use a program leaves the indistinguishable taste of pure sleaze in your mouth for the rest of the process(looking at you, Oracle and the Ask.com toolbar...)
Sourceforge is dragging the GIMP project's name through the mud by bundling this shit, even if they don't hit anyone. That alone is more than enough to be displeased by.
A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that works.
