Windows: great for visibility, bad for crash-test performance.
I can fully understand why even a Renault Migraine needs cameras. There's no point in looking out those windows.
"But AC!" you cry, "Bettering myself and my position is hard! I'd have to like, study, and not have time to sit around mindlessly consuming mah cable TV while I've got a giant dildo up my asshole!"
Yes, rest of the world, we really do have people so stupid they literally believe this kind of crap. Not only that, those same wastes of flesh piss and moan endlessly about "class warfare" anytime someone tries to make a change that would better the lives of our nation's poorest citizens.
On behalf of all thinking, reasonable Americans, I would like to apologize for this douche-muncher and his ilk. Let's all pray he's too busy staring in a mirror and wanking to ever go out and vote.
While this is what is the core of the conservative mindset it by no means is limited to the US so there's no need to apologize.
If the mainland European conservative parties said in clear terms that they believe in an elite and that everybody is equally able and should strive to become part of that elite then they would lose each and every election. That myth has been dispelled. Hard graft by no means does guarantee you a living anymore. In fact if you wokr as hard as your parents did you will still not be able to maintain their standard of living.
Germany is at the moment in a very awkward position. While the unions had managed to negotiate reasonable wages the big employers manage to dodge their agreements by hiring third-party service providers who treat their people like crap. There have been cases where those outsourcers lured people from Spain to Germany, housed them in decrepid buildings and paid them next to nothing. Things like these are very unpopular here in Germany. A retailer made the news that they treated their employees like crap and suddenly had to face reduced sales because the customers stayed away. I know of a WalMart in Germany that hardly has any customers due to the bad image they have. Things like these go against the grain of a majority of the populace. The conservative parties in Germany win elections by not promoting their ideas of having and relying on an elite but by being perceived as reliable.
The Ayn Randers would be met with disbelief if they tried to be honest and vocal in Germany. There is a reason why a party that has been part of parliament for the whole existance of the modern German democracy has been shamefully ousted this year and they got very little sympathy.
Sir Humphrey would be proud!
Introducing job security based on merit whold have set a dangerous precedent. Why else would one keep ministers around? We are happy, they are happy and as long as we waste money efficiently no dangerous answers would be required. And as long as there is the odd man overboard required we still have got a lot of politicians to spare and in steady supply.
As of next Thursday, UNIX will be flushed in favor of TOPS-10. Please update your programs.
