I don't disagree with your main point, but computers don't depreciate as much as they used to. You can still do good work on an 8 year old machine running a fairly recent version of your favorite OS. Hell, my gaming PC is only now beginning to show its age of about 5-6 years, and gaming PCs definitely depreciate faster.

No, he's saying that you can choose between the guy who's going to take your right to know what's in your food because money, or the guy who's going to take your right to know what's in your food. Because money.

Y'all have a de facto two-party system. That means that neither party has any reason to make drastic changes to their intended policy. They just have to slag the opponent, and 4-12 years later they've got the presidency again. Why bother listening to people?

I'm disinclined to have to disagree with whoever denies that you aren't incorrect.

There is a more obvious way of writing the above sentence, and it should be employed. Even though none of the words are terribly complicated, the whole cannot be understood at a glance.

The same goes for simpler things like operator precedence rules. Code should be understandable upon scanning it, unless it's black magic, heavily optimized code.

For much of the 20th century, the United States has had >70% tax on the wealthiest as well, with at some point >90%. Apparently, that did not seems to hurt the US.

Not that various American ultra-rich folks are calling for higher taxes on the wealthy too. Instead, they get tax breaks.

A few rich people being a bit upset that their income from labor gets taxed heavily, which they don't feel because the vast bulk of their income comes from investment, won't hurt them. It's the desire to spend spend spend that really gets Hollande. Actual socialists do more harm than good.

In the 1800s we also sent toddlers into chimneys and down mines because they were small.

You're an idiot. But if you're happy with yourself, who am I to poop on your parade? Enjoy yourself.

I work 36 hours a week, and am looking to drop down a bit. Friday afternoons I'm with my friends, having a life. I do sports in the evenings before dinner. I spend much of my free time working on my hobbies, getting good at them and enjoying the hell out of them. This makes enough money for the company I work at for them to want to pay me, for me to pay for the things I want. Sure, there's lots of other work, housekeeping related, helping friends or neighbors, but that's just life.

Sacrificing that life so you can provide 'value' for someone else? No thanks.

For large values of one, one equals two, for small values of two.
