You are a lying sack of shit. You assigned a side to me. That makes you a liar. You don't care about the truth. You just lie to cover up lies of people you attach yourself to. I don't like Hillary. I won't be voting for her.

You sound like Black Lives Matter, bitching that a conspiracy of cops is making the streets unsafe for criminals to ply their trades.

BLM pointed out that a black man, unarmed and laying down with his hands up is still likely to be shot by a cop. With witnesses and video. And the cops claim it's a good shoot. That's what BLM talks about. Not defending criminals, but defending the many innocent executed by cops.

If only the people abused by the police were armed. Blacks should just join the NRA and arm themselves.

Lets try to divorce this concept from the "Trump" name, that may cloud judgment. Want a better example of business failure, the pro athlete that is broke 5 to 10 years after they retire. Not the ex-athlete that still has $100M of $150M left, especially the ex-athlete at 70 years of age. For the later case you need to know what their goal was.

An athlete stops working. Trump claims to have made millions last year. Troy Aikman is still making money. He has his name on some dealerships (no idea if he owns them, or just licenses his name, but I suspect he owns them). He works on commentating and such. At best, Trump spends more than he makes. At worst, he loses much, and lies to us about it. We can't tell which lie he's telling, and how big the lie is, because he's the first candidate in a long time to not release is tax records.

Again, is there any evidence that his bankruptcies are not just a few failed projects out of dozens?

Nope. It's just more proof of his lies. He's a man of his word, unless he owes you money and sues the government to keep you from collecting. That's the piece the Trump-worshippers seem to miss. Bankruptcy is suing the government for protection from people you are breaking your promise to. From someone who has claimed his word is good. Many times.

You do know why he didn't publicize his tax returns, right? His estimated inheritance was $150M in 2016 dollars, and his estimated wealth is $100M in 2016 dollars. He's managed to lose more than $1M a year. That's how he runs businesses, into the ground. Of course, he threatened to sue the biographer that detailed his finances, and the biographer said "sure, get on the stand in court, under oath, where the topic is your finances." Trump ran away and took back all his lies about the biographer.

Trump objects when you call him a failed businessman who has never made $1 in his life, but has just lost his father's fortune with style, but he won't show a tax return or open any books to prove it wrong.

At least fraud Hillary files her taxes and shared her returns.

Fraud Donald refuses to do that. And the Trump Worshipers can't think to ask why.

Because it's usually true. The Republicans admitted that the Benghazi hearings were political in nature, timed to weaken her in the primaries. They found nothing new, and nothing that incriminated Hillary for anything other than having a small budget handed to her by the Republicans in Congress. When there are actual conspiracies, it's hard to not see conspiracies.

If the 3rd party breaks the law at the request of the government, it's treated as if the government broke the law themselves. Note, if Yahoo independently broke the law allowing them access to the emails, then provided those emails when requested, they didn't break the law at the request of the government, unless it can be shown that the initial law breaking was in response to a previous request by the government.

Stronger, lighter, cheaper, thinner? So many contradictions in there it's amazing because you're not getting all of those.

That you are dumb doesn't make something impossible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?... Oppo got rid of the jack, and ended up with a phone that was, at the time, the thinnest in the world, strong (with the video to prove it because so many idiots like you assume that thin and light mean weak), light, and much cheaper than anything close from Samsung. Sure, the jack wasn't the only reason this happened, but it was a contributing factor. Drop the jack, and make vast improvements in the design.

Exactly how is using a USB device easier then a simple plug?

Ask two people how a car is easier than a horse. One person from 1898, and one person from 1998.

USB is easier because it's universal. You have more options on location and presentation of the jack.

They have no drawbacks either, except for adding a few cents to the cost of the slave labor that makes your phone,

Space, weight, cost, and fragile. You missed some of the drawbacks of jacks. Also, re-read with the definition of "obsolete" being "old-fashioned". You might find that if your vocabulary is good, other people are easier to understand.

I have an iPhone at work, but could have opted for the android. The android choices were pretty poor. If my driving decision is the headset, I'd just carry an android for both. The real difference is the SIM. Heck, I have a 2-SIM phone for the day I get tired of hauling around 2 phones and carry one with both SIMs in it. Solves the 2-phone problem pretty simply.

And the jack hole is about 1 mm larger on all sides, so 3.5mm takes 5.5mm minimum. So any of the super-thin phones drop the headphone jack because it's to thick to include and hit the marketing goals.

at least with USB-C you can physically plug in something. I hate bluetooth because it's yet another item to keep charged. And without a cord, it's much easier to forget them and leave them somewhere. The looks of it are that the owner of the phone will need to keep a [lightning|USB-C] adapter appropriate for their phone around, and you can keep using your 3.5mm headphones forever. Though anyone who uses headphones on a computer and isn't an audiophile uses USB headphones because they are easier and generally higher quality than the obsolete 3.5 analog headphones.
