Just yet another reason to uninstall Windows 10.

While I agree, I get just as pissed at Google that I have to close a advertisement for Chrome any time I use gmail or youtube for the first time from a new browser. It would be one thing to use the normal ad space to hawk their own stuff, but no, they have to be more intrusive.

America's strength is the diversity of cultures. Having the culture of any one area dominate the country is bad. The electoral college does a good job of balancing this - to the extent that state boundaries reflect cultural boundaries, which is reasonably close.

As far as comparing states - compare Cali and Washington. Similar culture, totally different tax scheme and implementation. Sure, Cali is bigger, but taxes and services are per-capita to begin with, so that doesn't seem to matter. You can have the government services you crave without Cali's amazing taxes and overbearing government intrusion into life (local as much as state).

Comment Re:the 1 percent is mostly people who aren't tycoo (Score 1) 304

Big difference between the 1% and the .01%.

The 1% has a lot of doctors/dentists, lawyers, accountants, engineers, educated people who are going to push their kids to get educated.


To put it a different way, the 1% value education because for the most part it's why they're the 1%. The values you pass to your kids matter far more than the money.

Except the EU has stated you want access then you have to be a part of it.

Britain will trade with the EU just as most other nations do. This is not a bad thing. Britain remains a top-10 world economy. There will of course be turbulence until all the new trade treaties settle, but that's a small price to pay for sovereignty. Certainly lower than the price paid in centuries past to achieve sovereignty of the common man.
