I'm American, I'm not happy about it either. No one I know thinks that way or wants us to behave that way.

We have two main problems in America: our education system sucks balls but we still let those people vote (way more than enough people to swing elections). And the other problem is that our "elected" representatives are career politicians who have become an uncontrollable Nobility of sorts. You think our government actually listens to us? LOL.

Comment The worst part (Score 1) 465

The most frustrating and depressing part is that we're just now getting started at this Soviet-style communist repression stuff. Judging by the other countries that have endured it, we get to look forward to another 30-50 years of things getting worse until enough people get enough pissed off for the system to get un-fucked. By then "told ya so" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

As an aside, .NET lacks here, and massively because there is no spirit to make libraries available to others for free causing a non-availability of free libraries.

Gonna have to disagree with you on that point. The .Net languages, runtime, and framework libraries are all included in the .Net / Windows SDK and it's freely available: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/dlx/en-us/listdetailsview.aspx?FamilyID=6b6c21d2-2006-4afa-9702-529fa782d63b You can download and install the SDK and start coding right away.

Don't confuse Visual Studio with the languages / framework.

Even if you're referring to the availability of free-as-in-beer/speech libraries there are quite a few of those on CodePlex, GitHub, and CodeProject, depending on what you need.
