They steal from you, so it might not be such a crime to steal from them. By not paying taxes they steal money from everyone. Just divide what they stole by the number of people living in the US and you get the figure they stole from you.

I was also warning him about first checking which were supported with his Macbook.

Next time I saw him he had a Linksys. And it worked perfectly-
