Yup. When farmers and hens both vote against the fox guarding the henhouse, they have very different reasons.

Gladly. Please point me to a cell phone that is made 100% in the first world and I will immediately buy it.
Once it has all that, there's virtually no cost to adding the other stuff.
What I'd like to see is a basic phone with large buttons, a small basic screen for call display and a minimal phone book. Make it built like a tank, along the lines of the old AT&T rental phones.
A phone that is ONLY a phone.
Only true if there are only two parties. I'll let you do the math on what percentage is needed if there are three relatively equal parties, and it's first past the post. I'll give you a hint. It starts with a 3.
Not entirely true. Some businesses have a yearly cycle, and you lose money for long stretches of the year, only to make it up during your busy season.
Typically businesses lose money for their first few months of operation.
There are also businesses that spend more than they make, but rely on appreciation of core assets to ultimately make money; real estate investments can have costs higher than their income, but the appreciation of the real estate over time can make the investment pay off when the property is sold.
Rule #1 in business is to have an exit strategy that results in a profit from investment would be a better way of putting it.
Good Luck in whatever you go on to. As a non-techie, this site has been educational and fun since I first ran across it.
I first got on the Internet using an old 286 with a 2400 baud modem, using the freenet in Ottawa. For bonus geek points, at the time I was the head doorman at a bar called Zaphod Beeblebrox.
Seeing as how the Democrats are Centre-Right, and most liberals are pretty centrist compared to politics in the rest of the world, I'd say, yes, they would be centrist.
Could I pass it? Yes, assuming that I had an iphone with me. There's nothing there that requires anything more than either access to a web browser or rote memorization. I'm pretty sure that current testing requires more application of intelligence; taking knowledge and applying it than this test of the ability to memorize data and regurgitate it.
If this doesn't get some 'funny' moderations, then the rating system is even more broken than I feared.
Now you're just trolling for spelling nazis...
Get off my lawn.
Damned kids today.
Waving red in front of the bull. Always a good idea.
Pity that it will be MicroSofts' customers, not MS that will suffer when the hackers, script kiddies and miscellaneous ne'er-do-wells inevitably trash the security for their latest offering.
Yes. I would be equally outraged. On the flip side, I'm not asking for government interference in their business model, just stating that if a fucking book store is going to get into the censoring business, then they don't want *MY* money.
I would be just as upset by that as I was by what they did. I'd also be upset if they allowed people to selectively exclude jews, blacks or women. Enabling bigotry isn't something I will support.
