You people think privitization and 'free enterprize' just solves everything. It doesn't. Frankly, I use FedEX for next day pouches and UPS to return cores- which are ALREADY broken. UPS counter service sucks and price ain't everything.
If the sanctity of competetion is so damn important, look at your underwear,TV, computer, our car - and the American jobs that somebody lost for the sake of Free Trade. I'll run my Ford truck against your riceburner anyday.
And don't blame it on the unions either - UPS is union, and FedEx is headed that way. Try to complain about service sometime and see where that gets you.
Serves him right. I hope he gets hacked,phished and hacked and phished some more. Dumbass. Leave the WEB alone. The Government has fucked up everything innovative,good and decent which has enriched our lives and advanced America's standing in the world community.
That includes Christmas and McDonalds.
Along that line, I'm struggling to understand why we abandoned American exploration of the moon. If memory serves me correctly, for every dollar NASA spends, we see a $1.75 return in employment,science,R&D,engineering,purchasing and a flood of new patents. ever heard of velcro? How about duct tape?
Its sort of like Columbus hitting Puerto Rico the first time,burning his maps and setting sail for Spain.
F ** k China. Here's why; They're f**king us, and I don't mean the US - us, the rest of the world, the planet. So now THEY'RE " parsing code " to suit themselves.
It's been estimated that less than 15% of all software in China is legal, licensed code. Do the math - that means 85 percent is STOLEN. Now everyone one of us in the business probably has at least one piece of copied software, but we ain't selling it. There are businesses in China and India which sell ONLY illegal, pirated software . Even the damn packaging is counterfeit.Chineese political control and slight-of-hand manipulation over labor,accounting and marketing practices make FAIR competetion and legitimate business opportunities impossible.
China is sucking the planet dry. Just here in the US, we have lost MILLIONS of jobs to China, all in the name of free trade and it's a crock. Me? I becoming more of a protectionist every day. Ever wonder to what the affect Chinese pirating has on other people's livelihoods? How about where you live and work? How about you personally?
