My keyboard has a firstname
It's M-I-C-R-O
My keyboard has a second name
It's S-O-F-T oh!
Oh I love to use it everyday
And if you ask me why I say
Because Microsoft has a way with M-O-N-O-P-O-LAY

more or less

It's a joke. The original text pager was called 'more' (because it prompted you to press a key for more pages). A few years later, a better pager called 'less' was introduced. These are the de-factor text pages on Unix and Linux systems.

My apologies if you were trying to make your own joke, but you actually sounded like you don't know.

The US governement can't even get off their ass to build a 30ft high fence along our southern border even though they got congressional approval and have millions of people wanting it

Who wants it?

  • Do the politicians really want it? Or would they rather have an imminent threat of "illegals" to whip everyone else into a frenzy with?
  • Do the rich want it? Or would they prefer to hire cheap labor?
  • Do businesses want it? Or would they prefer to hire cheap labor and sell to them?
  • Do most citizens want it? Or do they not really care?

In 1750 Issac Newton became discouraged when he fell up a flight of stairs.
