I know the article says that these companies can't afford to ignore china

Well, big companies, like MS, Apple, Oracle, etc.

When you run a small (or more local) business, one of the nice things is being able to avoid certain markets and customers. In fact, unless your future growth (and corresponding funding) aren't a lock, you have to avoid them because all they'll do is destroy your business.

So if the big boys have to jump through ridiculous hoops in order to keep those profit margins sky-high, fuck 'em. That's how the game works.

You are defending things you want to believe.

Ah yes. Question other people's motivations, see how far that gets you.

In that vein, you're obviously a tool of the elite, here to sow bullshit and apathy to keep the people down. Hope that paycheck is worth it!

About your bullshit that democrat politicians are 'better' than republican ones!

Citation, please.

you put them on a damn pedestal

No, it's just that you and your "everybody's the same, hur durr" mentality is so fucking myopic, I'm put int he reasonable position of defending a president, an administration, a party and a country I don't even like all that much. THAT'S how retarded you are.

I mean, you can hate politicians all you want, but treating them as several thousand undifferentiated clones is fucking inhuman.

Well then I can clue you in on something. Whatever you're watching/reading spews the same crap about democrats and republicans as the TV.

Which includes you, I presume?

but your speculations are also nothing more than speculation

What speculations? You really suck at specifics.

The party created a monster, they chop one leg off, now they're a hero?

What the fuck are you talking about?

because I am not anti vax, but i am pro choice. in that people should be free to do as they wish with their own bodies

As long as these bodies are kept out of civilization, i.e. basically hermits, then I'm fine with that. If you want to participate in society, though, you have to get vaccinated. It is part of the social contract you make with the rest of humanity. It is analogous to you waving around your hands (your body) being free, as long as you don't hit someone in the face (someone else's body).

*in which, if you are talking about the voters, then we are in agreement, but the politicians on both sides are only going over their spreadsheets and leave all the masturbatory philosophizing for you all to fight over.

Sadly, real world events do not conform to that sentence.

philosophizing

No wonder you're clueless if that's what you think is going on.
