Well, see, here's the deal with that .... I'm not in kindergarten any longer, don't have to worry about getting that check mark under "plays well with others." I don't really give a rat's ass what Americans think. They have abrogated any rights to have an intelligent opinion by the way they have behaved over the past thirty years. Have you looked at the US recently ? Bluntly, it's a piece of shit. And it's not me who did that. 'Project for a New American Century" - are you people insane ?
Fact. Denial is more than a river in Egypt. Do you have eyes ? look around you. The US is a piece of garbage. There's nothing there there. it's gone. You gave it all to "business interests" who made "business decisions" and eviscerated the country. You ain't got shit. Finance, Real Estate, Insurance, Sewage. You got nothin' ....
Listen to R10 ... "computing is moving at such an exponential pace that you can't get attached to any particular flavor" (umm, so "brand" is worthless ?) ... then when questioned what he does ? PowerPoint, text editing, and spreadsheets. Oh whooop-dee-doo. It's all hot air and marketing horseshit.
You guys can stand around and oooh ! and aaaah ! over the Emperor's beautiful royal blue coat with the blazing gold epaulettes and the shimmering tan Italian slacks and the hand-tooled alligator boots all you like. But what's parading down the road is a scrawny limp-dick naked old fart with a pot belly and saggy ass. The consumer computer industry in the US has done nothing
for the past ten years. In fact, I'll go a step farther - with the exception of the scientific community telling you that humanity is hell-bent for destruction and you guys grabbing the throttle with both hands to twist it wider, the entire US has done exactly nothing
of value ever since the finance -slash - business people took over. For the past thirty years the US has been nothing but leeches. Useless, greedy, ignorant stupid leeches.
I don't really care if people like it or not. You can ooh and aaah the Emperor all you want. I ain't gonna. I'm just speaking truth.
