We'll live in a better world when everyone realizes we don't need government regulations and the free market can provide everything we need with quality and competitive prices.

I'm outraged by theses stupid politicians trying to regulate away our freedom to do business with whomever we wish.

As a grown adult, I know what's better for me, thankyouverymuch.

Is there a technical reason why you need open source formats, or you just want to look cool and hip to others (friends, customers, etc.)?

MS Office formats are widely used and accepted all over the word and over the best integration with most cloud providers (quick viewing, for instance).

I've read a lot of stories lately about VG and porn doing this and that to our youth. Which game will be blamed for the next school shooting?

I've been saying forever that the keyword is moderation. Anything in excess will screw you up, be it porn, exercise, or board games.

Your government should allow the private sector to create the infrastucture to enable mass transit to happen, and then profit from it.

Governments make terrible business owners, we see this over and over again in different sectors of our economy.

Leave governmet out of this and let free market forces figure it out.

This is one of the biggest bullshit laws I've ever seen.

Let's say I don't want to hire you because you're old. EEO laws simply mean that I can't say it in your face that you're old. Instead, i send you the standard HR rejection e-mail and we're all good.

Sight, I hate seeing my tax $$ going to waste drafting these stupid laws.
