I suppose I say Marry Christmas more often, although I don't really care.

I know people like this exist, but I just kinda pretend that they don't.

Why? Because it doesn't fit in with some simplistic narrative of how people should think?

The basic founding idea of feminism, of treating men and women fairly and equally irrespective of sex, is awfully hard to argue with.

12  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should the US government break up some of the largest corporations? on: December 18, 2014, 01:10:10 pm
I'm going to say yes, except for the technology industry(Intel, Microsoft, AMD etc.)

Why make an exception for Microsoft, it would be one of the most obvious candidates. Amazon and Google are other good cases,

Monopolies (incl. companies with near total market dominance) are bad not just for economic reasons, but also because they are too powerful and "economy of scale" shouldn't be a carte blanche for creating and maintaining them. There is also the obvious "too big to fail" problem, if a company can not be allowed to go bankrupt without public intervention it should be broken up.
The problem with Microsoft is that too many people rely on it, and I'd rather not be forced to use Mac OS X.

Why would you be? Isn't the idea behind anti-trust laws to create more competition? So breaking up Microsoft should actually create more options than them and Apple.

Has anyone ever made maps for these elections?

IIRC, Dallasfan was making the maps, but I don't think any have been made since the late 1800s, or maybe the early 1900s.

This appears a sad repudiation of the triumphant Goldwater years. Sad
Cheesy
