I like Twitter and Donald Trump. Obama tweets and everyone is fine - such hipocracy. Hey lefties - if you hate the Donald so much just vote him out in the next election, that's how democracy works.

'Hey, Homeland Security. Don't you dare demand Twitter, Facebook passwords at the border'

Smart meters are a ‘costly mistake’ that'll add BILLIONS to bills

kraftdinner

Look at Canada

Let's not forget that 'ol Rockyfeller made a secret deal with the railways to cut his transportation costs in half thus shutting out his competition. If only economists could account for human greed behavior...there should be a greed-index built into our elasticity charts.

Are you ready for the 40-zettabyte year?

kraftdinner

Crazy
