Given that I would gladly work for any of their companies, I don't see the problem.

What specific issues do you have with them, and do you think they would operate the government the same or different than their own business? Specific examples would be helpful for me to follow your line of reasoning.

So Silicon Valley and DC politicians do have some common ground.

Why do you keep electing a privileged elite to represent you in DC, but you shy away from a privileged tech elite that have a track record for economic growth?

Something doesn't add up here, and I suspect it's your own personal bias. Try take a more anti-establishment stance, at least when the world is crumbling around us.

Well if my building is a large square, I can take a diagonal hallways, so instead of pi * d, I can do sqrt(x2+y2). If my building is a cube and the elevator shafts run diagonally (which they don't, but stairwells kind of do) then it's sqrt(x2+y2+z2).

And I'll take a sqrt over a linear distance any day of the week.

" about limiting the right of the Federal government from infringing the rights of the people"

How is monitoring infringing on any rights at all?
No where is the constitution does it say you can't be monitored.

" that "Shall make / not" means exactly what the dictionary says it does. "
No, that's stupid, at the very least. see 'literally'.

" The first and second amendments alone have been trampled with literally tens of thousands of laws that take away or limit said rights (I haven't even touched the other amendments)."
false, but nice of you to have drank the NRA koolaid.

You can magical get fat. You can change the way you matabilize food, you might retain a little extra water, other than that you aren't gaining more fat than the calories you eat.

This country is gotten so fa,t it doesn't know what fat is. I had a conversation with someone complaining becasue his BMI said he was fay. I said 'you are fat'. He looked at me is disbelief.
I'm like, yes you are fat, not obese, but id you stomach is not smaller than you chest, you are fat.
Rule of thumb, may not apply to people on the extreme of the bell curve.
Right not people seem to think you aren't fat until you get some roll which is typically obese.

Anyways, you sister in law is using her medications an excuse to eat too much. Probably they zapped some energy form her and she doesn't move as much, thus needing fewer calories. That was speculation.
