If you ever read any "Marxist" writings, or the actual books on communism, you'd see that in them the removal of the state government is a stated end result. That's true communism though, something you Alex Jones loving loons never will understand. "Big government" was a conservative institution until Reagan convinced conservatives they should GIVE the government setup institutions to the people who already had the most. Not even charge for it, but have the government build it on the back of the people and hand it over to the people who already were at the top to run it privately. Conservatism is welfare for the rich at the expense of the whole nation. Conservatism is theft.

In America, the libertarian party is a terrorist offshoot of the republican party who's sole goals and mission is the fiscal destruction of the entire world by spending many times the tax revenues using such dishonest tactics such as claiming "tax cuts lead to increased revenue" and "tax cuts are free if they are cut on the wealthiest people only" and "if we take ALL the money, then there will be more money to go around".

Time and time again they get proven wrong and instead they just send their sock puppets to places like slashdot to attack anyone who disagrees with them. They also infected our congress and shut down the government for a period in an attempt to commit domestic terrorism.

The Greek financial disaster came from refusal to pay taxes and constant reduction in tax enforcement. This is the end result of modern "fiscal conservatism" and why a socialist government so easily swept into power there. The people bailing are people who suspect Greece is about to come knocking and demanding what was due a long time ago but they refused to pay.

Short answer is no. Long answer is yes.

Some versions of the crypto viruses have the keys released so you can decrypt. Others do not. If you know how to google, you know how to find out what version it is and if it's been released. If you've got cryptolocker it's simple.

Moscow would publicly execute him for a small sanctions relief after their Ukraine actions. This is probably why he's talking trial, he knows his time is coming up soon in Russia, and he can't find a safe passage to any other nation that will let him stay without risk of US retribution.

Of course, he did commit treason by definition, so his fear of being treated as someone who committed treason is kinda spot on.

We're running 10 tech preview exclusively in our office. It's had a few bugs, but they haven't been blocking. The most frustrating one I've seen is the numlock bug (numlock off in bios was actually on in windows and vice versa) This is a huge issue if you have an always on numlock keyboard like my logitech 5500.

If entropy is increasing, where is it coming from?
