Like a typical {political label goes here}, you only quoted the parts that backed up your ideology. The fact that Adam Smith understood the need for taxes and tarrifs fails to refute the parent's claim that he supported capitalism. Even "right wingers" understand the need for taxes, unless that are all out anarchists.

the average time served for kidnapping is 52 months

I can only imagine that the average kidnapping involves a parent that lacks custody or something more mundane than what we are use to seeing on TV. The damage this guy did is likely more comparable to burning the whole building to the ground. Well... maybe that's taking it a bit far, but it serves my point.

This isn't just about a single person or an isolated incident. The BLM has been rubbing locals the wrong way in Nevada for some time now. This includes events that lead to the local sheriff (Tony DeMeo) threatening to arrest BLM agents for illegal search and seizures against his constituents.

You'll notice that when you watch cartoons on NetFlix that when there is scene scrolling or lots of changes across frames, that the quality will go down which is probably due to the mpeg layer compression that they are using to minimize the amount of data transfer, so it can't be processed on the client side.

Dedicated hardware also performs better per the cost especially when it comes to disk io. I've experienced minutes of waiting time just making a MySQL database around 15 tables none having more than 5000 rows, whereas it was nearly instantaneous on my local machine. I've also experienced a lack of consistency on EC2. If someone is watching an episode of the smurfs where it is raining, you will notice a difference.
