You're an Amenian genocide denier denier?! Man, I hope you never try to travel to Turkey. Didn't you see that move "Midnight Express"? Your visit will be like that, only less pleasant.

In most US states, sales tax levied on vehicle purchases and the annual registration fee counts for quite a lot of money. In fact, that's what drove Tim Eyman to propose I-695 in Washington State. One of the arguments against I-695 was that said registration fees were covering other programs, and the loss of those funds would blow a hole in the state budget.
No 64-bit code for Express
Because it would be too difficult for a C# programmer to edit an XML file and call msbuild.
There are rational digs against the express versions, but this ain't one of 'em.
I was considering out-sourcing some work to the Philippines (from a non-American territory, for an international aid organization) and ISTR the going rate for educated Filipinos was ~ $1300/month. It was more expensive than India (again, going by memory, $1000/month) but the Philippines were closer and they have much better infrastructure and English skills.
The best part of the B-1R is that the unofficial nickname of the B-1 is the "Bone"*. Who wouldn't want to have a "Bone R" in their strategic arsenal?
*The (probably apocryphal) source is a newspaper article where the hapless reporter spelled out B-1 and left out the hyphen.
You're a little confused about the sequence of events.
Zimmerman _was_ arrested. That's where we got that video of him being walked into the police station in handcuffs.
Zimmerman wasn't charged. And frankly, that was down to the state AG who said there needed to be a deeper investigation before charges could be brought.
It probably wouldn't take a very good lawyer to overturn a conviction if it was found that Zimmerman's civil rights were violated during the investigation (*cough* OJ *cough*)
Presumably the investigation has happened and now Zimmerman has been charged.
The only way I can see to level the playing field against China is to revoke their most favored trading partner status that Bush Jr. Gave them.
China has had MFN status since the mid-to-late 90s, largely at the behest of export-driven industries like aerospace. China was granted permanent MFN status in October of 2000. That's a month before the 2000 elections, and 3 months before W. took office. It's nice to see that Bush Derangement Syndrome is still flowering after nearly a full term by his replacement.
