You gotta hand it to the guy for negotiating for the rights to the software. He kinda was *TRYING* to do the right thing by making sure he had the proper rights to the software (presumably before he sold it himself). A more unscrupulous man might just have stolen the software and used it to start his own business without any notification at all.

Wow, a European showing up to point out what's wrong with America. Thanks! Where would we be without you people? If we didn't have your constant sniping and criticism, we'd be lost in a sea of positivity! Thanks again for telling us how we're wrong. It means so much, especially coming from a European.

It's a joke. Laugh. Another nail in the coffin for the humorlessness of the Left - as long as it involves them as the butt of the joke. They're perfectly OK ridiculing the fuck out of everyone else, up to and including the point of cruelty. Most recently Rosie O'Donnell ridiculing Trump's son. How low do you have to go?

Well, the Left and the Democrats have only themselves to blame. We all know this, right? Voting for Trump was the last, desperate move of ordinary Americans whose backs were up against the wall. Hillary promised open borders, Trans-Pacific Partnership, more free trade, more H1Bs, more exporting of jobs, and everything the heartless globalist political class wanted. They were going to stick it to America and they were going to make it HURT. On November 8th Americans' vision of America was going to die, Painfully.

And why shouldn't they vote for Trump, anyway? Hillary was already a 93%, 98% favorite. At this point, what difference does it make? Go down in flames, with a protest vote. And then he won, go figure.

If you want to know how we ended up like this, please watch this video: "President Trump: How & Why...". It is a must-view for people exactly like you for how the level of political discourse got so low. It's by a leftist, so you know he's telling the truth and has been fact-checked. It's really sad what he's saying and it is all 100% true. Never forget this: Trump is all your fault. If you had just been understanding and wanted to do what was right for Americans, this would never have happened. It's going to be a long eight years and hopefully during that time you will discover compassion for your countrymen, but I doubt it.

In Alan Turing's time, homosexuality and other gender/sexual "differences" were considered to be a deviant social choice, rather than an innate biological difference. Thus, such behaviors were socially shamed, criminalized, and treated as a mental illness. When the social engineering and therapy did not work to deter such behavior, however, society slowly learned that such individuals were indeed "born that way". Thus, a period of advocacy for tolerance began...and still continues today.

The irony is that we did not seem to fully learn from those lessons. The pendulum has just gone in the other direction. Thus, in our time, being a heterosexual and masculine male is now considered to be a deviant social choice. As a result, we are seeing such heterosexual and masculine behavior increasingly being socially shamed, criminalized, and treated as a mental illness. Much like other gender/sexual orientations, however, such social engineering, punishment, and propaganda are not having a significant effect on male masculine and heterosexual behavior either. The reason being, that such men are indeed "born that way" too.
