How could you? We are not worthy of praising such gods. We will be punished for even saying their names.

  1. Large corporations can aquire/merge with competitors forming monopolies.

There are laws against this. Technically, a monopoly is when one company knocks out all other competition, and that isn't happening. All they are doing is reducing competition, which in and of itself has ups and downs. I don't necessarily agree with it, but that is how it is.

  1. Big corporations make it difficult to create a start up with all the resources and experience they own.

They do make it difficult, but that is because they make their company a trusted name. People are less likely to go with an unknown company, so the bigger a corporation is, the harder it is to start in the business. Honestly, unless your startup is going to be revolutionary for the industry, don't go into an industry that is overshadowed by huge corporations. Try to jump onto the newer industries that haven't quite matured yet.

Last but not least corporations can "buy" politicians to make laws in their favor.

This doesn't have as much to do with the economy as it does with our governemt. People have the right to lobby, and if a company has the money to hire more lobbyists more often than someone else, then they might have more influence. That will continue until the laws ae changed, which probably won't happen.

Eh, Karma isn't where it's at. You don't have anything until you have the almighty Gorkbucks bestowed upon you.

The problem with algae is it can be invasive to animals, and could actually cause problems. Trees, however, provide shelter and food for them. Plus, I'm not sure about you, but algae doesn't look nearly as appealing as a forest of trees.

The current state of the country has nothing to do with the constitution. It has everything to do with the people in office running under that constitution. It isn't the constitution that's broken. It is the people that are.

So you like going from election to election worried on whether the next president is going to do something stupid and kill us all?

I do agree that the government itself is well set up, but there are some things that could be fixed now, and politics is so bad that you can't even say your party without being spat at and put down.

It's just not something a 13yo would usually look forward to getting, that's all. Unless he was super interested in US politics, which usually isn't likely.

Not too sure... you can't really 'farm' karma on this site. If you blatantly ask for upvotes, you'd probably be downvoted anyways. I mean, you can just reply on everything popular in a specific post, and you'll be more likely to get upvoted. I am curious what staff define Karma Farming as.

I thought this was going to be another karma farming attempt...haven't had one of those in a while.

Anyways, I agree with tomtomj2, if they are truly low on cash or homeless, they will accept even the smallest gestures.

Well, it won't actually run windows or anything, This is usually for if you can't get it to boot or POST or something like that. If the system posts without the ram, them you know your ram is the problem.

Umm...that is why people recommend running the system without the ram first, then slowly add sticks in if having larger issues.

May I ask why he is an embarrassment? I mean, we are all still alive, and the government is running just fine, so he can't be doing too bad. No better or worse than other presidents if you look at it that way.

I guess your right... I do see that the salary increase is not too much of an issue, just the first thing that came to mind when I was thinking of things that would stop if term limits went into effect.

It hasn't impacted me yet, but it will in a few years. It's not always about now, we need to think about the future as well.

And about how I know about the political climate, I have parents that keep me posted on what is happening in our government. They don't tell me EVERYTHING, but enough to keep me informed. Also, I do see stuff on Facebook, and I do my own research too. I know news can and is biased. That is why I know my country's laws and look into news, not just from one source.

That is why term limits on Congress is needed. It is that limit on power that would help. Now, will it solve the problem completely? No, people are part of that too, but it is a lot harder to change people.

Depends. 3900X is 30% better in multi-threaded tasks. In Single-threaded tasks, I'm pretty sure the 9900k still wins out. All around, each CPU trades blows when it comes to performance, really depends on what you need.
