Comment Re:Doing Trump's work for him (Score 1) 438

The very essence of freedom is the freedom to fail. Without that possibility, you're not free and you won't try as hard to do anything. Most successful people have failed many times before hitting a success. It's not how many times you get knocked down, it's how many times you get back up and keep trying.

Intel has been trying this for many years. They never succeed because Intel is trying to make chips so Intel can sell chips for phones and tablets. Intel is Intel-focused. If they focused on making chips to solve problems for customers, they might be more successful.

Microsoft has the same problem. Windows 8 and Xbox One were very obviously Microsoft-focused products -- customers didn't want tiles or Kinect or HDMI input.

Memo to Intel and Microsoft: don't make stuff you want to sell, make stuff people want to buy.

The same poor people you are whining about seem to have no problem providing an ID when signing up for government aid. Or renting a movie. Etc, etc, etc.

Just how many poor people don't have a driver's license? And in a lot of states a state-provided photo ID can be had for nothing. Hell, they'll even come to your house and take your photo and make you an ID card if you have no way to get to them.

Tempest in a teapot.

I can't think of any other reason someone in his position would support the Republican Party.

Republicans are probably a lot nicer to him than Democrats. Would Democrats invite him to speak at their convention?

He also has a long history of supporting free speech and opposing speech codes and criminalization of speech as "hate speech". Just this week Hillary announced her support for a constitutional amendment repealing free speech for specific people.

Before you post about your failure to think of things, maybe try a little harder.
