if they do that, every single country out there will go out and develop nuclear weapons deterrents. Ukraine specifically received guarantees from Russia for its protection when it gained independence, 20--25 years ago. Russia's word is so easily broken? Sad, dangerous and sad.
Chromebooks have to be online to work, so remote into a debian/ubuntu vps and do your stuff there. SSH client app on chromebooks works great.
I used them for years,finally gave it up.
The API was not good enough, and for my use, cheaper VPS providers were cheaper.

My company does this, but selectively not on some sites, such as my WellsFargo banking account.
I'm a quantitative analyst at a bank, you insensitive clod!

Doesn't the NSA have the ability to put a manila envelope on the president's desk, and next thing you know: boom! Hellfire missile blows up you and your family. No police, no judge, no jury...
Actually, no. Once you enter the TSA screening area, you may not leave without going through with it...
Ah, uh, I have to replace the network card.
Oh, no, the machine is welded shut.
Get a new machine...
How do you know whether an order is lawful or not if the law itself is a secret?
