Why don't you face reality. They allocate x amount of money. They charge 3-5% interest on it. And, all the money they allocated has to be paid back. It's a ponzi scheme. It's a ponzi scheme by definition. The debt is not ment to be paid back; it's ment to keep you enslaved.
This is the perfect way to pay them back. It's not a legal loophole.
Ford compared this scenario to the intertwining, complex relationships and structures that helped contribute to the global financial crisis.
Cloud computing is like fractional reserve accounting, with artificially low interest rates?
As for the Phoenix lights, the second wave have been explained (flares), and the lack of an verifiable explanation for the first wave doesn't mean they were exotic aircraft/spaceships/time-travelling reptilians. Fuck, migratory birds flying in formation cause massive illuminated Vs gliding silently across towns and cities all the time. The human propensity to see structure where there is none quickly extrapolates points of light into solid structures is well-documented, and has not been ruled out at all.
I have no doubt that the additional Phoenix Lights events were flares, and likely hoaxes. In fact, I believe they were productions to cast doubt on the first events. But, suggesting that the first event could be birds is absurd. That does not match the video, many thousand of creditable eyewitness accounts, and coverup. To suggest that migratory birds are not ruled out as an explanation of the Phenoix Lights is to admit ignorance on the topic.
Drunk drivers are pursued because it's both profitable and politically correct. That's not enough to make it just. A truly just cause is to work to prevent all 55,000 fatalities every year. Systems exist to do this. If the government funded programs for vehicle safety, such as cars that drive themselves, most all auto fatalities would vanish, along with the DUI problem.
That said, I do not believe GPL2 prevents users from posting in the App Store. Here's why.
It is said that it can not be posted, because someone can not freely use the code that is shared when it's posted. That's not true. Anyone can use the code. The true complaint is that you can't sign and distribute the code without paying $99. Does GPL say that there has to be free code certs? I don't think so. The only issue is the code certificate need to sign the code.
Also, get off my lawn.
I am an independent publisher of software on another platform, and I make a good living selling discount software at $40 a copy. If overnight I had to worry about others discounting that software to $5 a copy, I'd have trouble.
That being said, my software is for a very limited group of people, and I doubt I'd see much competition, but who knows?
