2/4     Don't be evil.  Unless it's with China, or doubleclick, or the NSA...
        \_ Google on the China deal: "We're not being evil because
             we'll do a better job providing information to the
             Chinese than any other company."
           Google on getting out of the China deal: "We're not
             evil because we're cutting our losses in China
             to make our shareholders happy."
        \_ Don't deal with fucking communists. End of story.
        \_ The WWII gen would have never put up with this shit.
           \_ China (Republic of China) was our ally in WWII.
              \_ And I'm sure a base in taiwan would be a good place to
                 supply a fleet of cruise missile ships to turn the
                 mainland into porcelain.
                 \_ Japan would help.

10/23   why does OBama want my pie?
        \_ Because you're too wealthy and should share with those who
           are less fortunate. Fucking asshole
           \_ The solution is simply to control population growth.  All
              issues of class warfare and whatnot are related to
              overpopulation and competition for resources.  If you stop
              having kids you don't need handouts.  If the population
              gets low enough we can all have enough land and be basically
              self-sufficient.  Look at the success of China since their
              population control policy.  But we can implement it as a free
              market: require people to "purchase" their child in advance;
              it will be kind of like buying a house where you have to show
              enough income and a significant downpayment towards raising
              that child.  Otherwise you can't have it.
              \_ I like this idea. Singapore has something similar where
                 they have incentives for people with PhDs or higher education
                 to have more kids without more financial burdens. The problem
                 is really when immigrants flock here and have kids, how
                 the hell are you going to enforce the no-kid policy?
                 \_ Crack down on immigration.  But yeah actually enforcing
                    it seems difficult... China does it somehow but it is a
                    totalitarian police state.
              \_ Errr..  I think it's pretty hard to prove that China's rise
                 has anything to do with the 1 child policy.  Espcially since
                 China is about to get it's butt kicked by the demographic
                 drop.
                 \_ Hard to prove perhaps, but very strong corrolation. You
                    don't think increasing the ratio of productive:unproductive
                    members of society can lead to increased growth rates? You
                    are probably the only one, then. China was seriously in
                    danger of massive overpopulation before they instituted
                    the one child policy, but yeah, there is going to be
                    a demographic bump up the road because of it. Not for
                    a while though, at least 20 years.
        \_ When did progressive taxation become contreversial?
           \_ When 1st person narrator entered the $250k+ tax bracket.
