"Don't be evil." The road to hell is paved with good intentions. This idea of G-Town is the start of yet another indentured servitude scheme to eke out as much productivity as possible while subtly applying pressure that will enslave Google-ites both mentally, physically, and financially. American history is replete with examples and is fundamentally anathema to the concept of Liberty. Just like modern American economic enslavement. How are the payments of that McMansion and Hummer coming along?

This is outrageous. It does not require 30 years on the bench to comprehend the pure absurdity of this. People who commit real crimes such as manslaughter, murder, rape serve less time. The schemers on wall street who crashed our economy have caused incredible misery for millions of people, yet they walk free.

If there is one thing the bulk of Americans rally about, it is maintaining and growing our military strength. The military attempting to move away from fossil fuels is the most positive development to ever occur in the so called "alternative energy movement", which should never have been trivialized. Petroleum distillation is simply not viable over the long haul.

One can think of the modern era of desktop security akin to being a police state. So much has "gone down" that the conventional system of trust between client and server has been broken. Clients acting like servers spreading "problems" in the network degrading performance, taking down clients and servers is no way to run affairs. In a more civil situation, then we need only worry about the borders, everyone is happy, and rainbows shoot out of our butts.

An optimist believes we live in the best world possible; a pessimist fears this is true.
