Windows Vista was the set-up to make Windows 7 look good. Now, they are switching things up so that there is no obvious continuation of the "Bad Word Version saved by Good Numbered Version" pattern followed by ME/2000, Vista/7.

Windows 8 is clearly lowering the bar and defecating on the playing field to make sure that Windows Chasm is a savior-success story.

"Shit happened, how can I exploit it to force other people to stop doing things I dislike?" would be closer.

The ghouls of all stripes are dancing in the blood of these children to push their own personal political agendas, whether it is banning video games, goths, guns or "loners".

"Assault Rifle" is a technical term, for a light rifle firing an intermediate round that is capable of selective fire, switching between semi-auto (one round fired per trigger press) and full-auto (more than one round fired per trigger press). It IS abused by the media, either through ignorance or to grind a political axe, as a term to describe any long arm used in a crime that does not look like Elmer Fudd's shotgun.

"Assault Weapon" is the made up term by the Brady campaign to sound scary, as part of the campaign described by Eric Holder to brainwash people to their way of thinking. The truly extremist "journalists" tend to use this term.
