Oops! No, that's not true (i should have checked before i posted, rather than after!) However, the incarceration rate is considerably higher than most of the rest of the world.

The US is spiraling down into the Third World. We are going to be like some bifurcated society where we have a shit load of poor people and a handful of rich folks.

I know very little about the US, but i was under the impression that it's already like that. It's certainly got ten times the incarceration rate of the next most incarcerated country.

If you're writing it (and the language is supported) do it in Vim.

If you've got a clue about programming, it doesn't matter if the language is supported or not. All you need is a text editor. But not vim, not unless you're doing a quick fix of something. I use vim heaps, but not for programming. I use geany for that. Gui text editors are so much more convenient than vim for anything other than editing config files.
