You know what? You're not nearly as smart as you think you are. I first typed in random 'passwords' that weren't my LOW security password, and it said that those hadn't been hacked. And I didn't type in any of my high security passwords, and those are different on each site anyway, so there wouldn't be any point.

"Use a few passwords and variations of those. add caps and exchange letters for numbers aka "l33t"

Hahaha. Don't do that, moron.

A 2017 Ram 1500 base truck is about $26,500 MSRP,

Have you driven the Ram? There's a reason why it's the least popular truck.

A Ram Promaster 1500 (based on the large Fiat van chassis) is around $30,000 MSRP.

It is a complete fucking shitpile. Every review of every model of Fiat Ducato (by any name) shows that it is underpowered, handles like dogshit, and is the least reliable vehicle in the segment.

FCA is circling the toilet bowl for a reason. Expect them to get bought out by VW within the next five years, because VW is going to need a new partner.

It's really odd to blame Trump for the current state of the economy.

That would be odd. It's only due to your poor reading comprehension skills that you think that I'm doing that.

He has been in power for only 2 months.

So? He has already made sweeping policy changes and more to the point, taken credit for bringing jobs back to America which are in fact not coming back to America. If he wants to take the credit, then his athletic supporters can be reminded of the fact that he has done no such thing.

Democrats have been delaying the confirmations of his nominees for various administrative positions, too, which has limited what he had done and can do.

Yeah, they've managed to delay some Russian employees from being placed in our government. Good on them.

The current economic problems aren't because of the administration that has been in partial control for only 2 months. These are problems thst go back to the last two administrations.

Trump claimed that he would make deals with the automakers to bring jobs back to America. But the jobs are leaving America. Exactly the opposite of what he promised is happening. And some of them are leaving specifically because Trump has become president. Notably, trust in American services is at an all-time low, and people are being dissuaded even more strongly from traveling to the USA than ever before by his travel policies. It's not just these muslim bans, or the muslim laptop ban for that matter, travelers from many countries are reporting having their laptops imaged and the like. Trump is having a chilling effect on America.

Why the hell would I want to stop them? All I said is that people are accepting a "licensing" model if that is offered to them in a comfortable way. Saying that people WANT a licensing model is bullshit if you ask me. What they want is comfort, and for that they're willing to put up with things that are less annoying than the gain in comfort.

The fallacy is that if you take away a bad business that there will be no business. Guess what: Just because we disallowed you from having slaves doesn't mean that there was no cotton to be picked anymore. The work still has to be done, if you can't get slaves to do it, you might have to pay workers to do it.

That's the other extreme. Hell, am I the only one who doesn't think that having one foot in the freezer and the other one in the frying pan is the only way to have a comfortable warmth on average?

Right now the scales of copyright are tipped WAY over towards the side of rights holders, to the point where they pretty much dictate everything concerning their work. Including and actually especially the time after I hand over money for it.

It used to be simple. You created something, I gave you money so I could enjoy it. But that wasn't enough, now you also want to control how, when and if I may enjoy it. And this goes beyond any reason.
