I'm mainly driving toward doing an AWS certification, but what I don't want to do is some kind of configuration boo-boo and get slapped with a $500 bill or something for random faffing about.
I'm saying that the sunk costs of a phat box to try some of these stylings offline, then push the configuration to AWS, at least seems less risky.

Wait: you get to accuse me of having my own party, accuse me of having privilege, then accuse me of insisting that you are a member of some established party? I don't remember saying you were the DNC chair, for all your utterances do rival those of Wasserman-Schultz for incoherence.
If you want an accusation, I think you're a defender of statism.

This is kinda funny:
On the one hand, I don't doubt that there is substantial truth to the litany of allegations. Even if you want to try to be an Ollie North apologist, he and old "photographic memory" Poindexter really jacked it through the roof.
However, the list is hardly complete:
  • Paul Wolfowitz, then Director of Policy Planning at the Department of State, was caught jaywalking in DC. "That's what you do on J Street," said Paul, "J walk."
  • David Stockman is mentioned as having been indicted, but they omit the charge of picking his nose from rap sheet.
  • Finally, that most infamous rogue of all, Rumsfeld, was too evil for even the Reagan Administration, and was busy cooking Nutrasweet to destroy our Precious Bodily Fluids.

If anything, the moral of this story is that if you concentrate power, Bad Things happen. So what are you doing to help deconstruct Leviathan, sir?

Broadening your point, jQuery does a fine job of harmonizing all of the bits of personality across vendors and versions. Buy all means, hack that javascript down by a factor of 100. . .but be sure to bulk up on testers and maintenance people to help you re-invent jQuery's host of fix-ups.
Not that any of that helped I guess jQuery hasn't implemented polishLegislativeTurd() yet.
