I would be ok with removing all tax exempt statuses from churches as long as charity work was deductible for them. We could then see which churches really do put their money where their mouth is in charitable work and donations. It would also encourage any religions which don't put much effort in helping the poor to change that behavior rather quickly.

The days of people buying new computers every two years are over, except for a few. The whole operating system paradigm has shifted so much that trying to rely on people constantly upgrading it just doesn't work any more.

That's not true. They just make you upgrade your hardware every 2 years instead of software (phones, tablets, etc.).

Same here...I'm also the father of all girls. They dress up as princesses, just as easily as they do science experiments, assemble a PC, or do math. Being a princess and "girly" is not mutually exclusive to being smart and independent.
