You say that, and yet, despite historically great conditions the French still rose up and killed the aristocracy.

So what you're saying is that you have absolutely no understanding of history. Which is fine. But so long as you stay in that mode, consider keeping your nonsense zipped. You're just embarrassing yourself.

Computer repair has changed. It's less about the repair of the actual PC/OS (sometimes it is though), It's more about recovering the data. People will pay to get their children's baby pictures back, even if it is to migrate everything to a new computer. Then you still have to make sure no viruses are coming along with that. Wages have gone down, but I'm still successfully charging a premium for my services. There will always business helping lazy or ignorant people that don't do backups (I mean ethical business).

The geek squad format and reinstall model is what's dead (but it's not). It never should have been accepted in the first place though.

I.e. the data is what pays now, not the machine.

No, I was pointing out actual lying and cheating by the people running the DNC. That you and millions of others want to pretend to consider that to be merely theater is exactly why the Democrats have lost nearly a thousand state legislative seats, most of the governorships, both houses of congress, the White House, and the Supreme Court. Looking forward to more condescending tut-tutting, smug lefty sneering, and shrill phony outrage in advance of the upcoming legislative elections, when the non-stop losing pattern on the part of the Dems will continue, costing them even more of their dwindling minority in congress. Thanks in advance for your hard work in keeping that streak alive!

You're right. The RNC establishment's non-stop catering to Trump's every need during the election was such a spectacle. Oh, right ... that didn't happen. The party and the media were utterly hostile to him, as opposed to, say, slipping him debate questions in advance, courtesy of the woman who is STILL running the DNC machinery.

Except, note that you are quick to say the Russians had "something" to do with the election, but aren't saying that they actually changed your mind about who to vote for. If they didn't change your vote, how DID they impact the election? By allowing people to see that the DNC, behind the scenes, are a bunch of hypocritical, lying manipulators who are quick to trot out the occasional racist remark and cheat during debates? Sure. But everyone already knew that sort of thing about them. Did those revelations change your vote? No? I see.

Every place but Africa and India is wired pretty good with fiber

That's hilarious. Spoken like a true Coastal.

Try driving, say, 45 minutes away from your nearest three-coffee-shops intersection, into any even slightly rural area in the US, and then get back to us with a re-evaluation of that comment. No, everyone outside of your apartment building isn't a redneck. Many of them make plenty of money, and can't buy broadband at twice what you're paying. Or ten times what you're paying. Because stringing fiber down a twenty mile road that's home to five houses is financially foolish for the ISPs. Which you know, but you're pretending not to, so you can act like this is all about that part of Africa you're sure isn't a market.

You mean, those places where a middle class family makes less than Americans living below the poverty line?

Yes, them. Where the cost of living is a fraction of what it is in the US. Which you know, but are pretending you don't so you can have a nice little OMG INEQUALITY! rant inside your bubble. Have fun with that.
