Quote:

Please show what percentage of Intel's R&D

Irrelevant. We are talking about the development of computers. Please list how much Intel contributed to research and development into computers throughout the 1940's and 50's. Sources please.




Gee Alex, how soon you forget your own statements...
Quote:

The internet, computers, you name it the taxpayer poured in billions for the research. Instead of putting patents on it and earning the money back the rights were pissed away to private corporations to rake in the profits. We pay for the research, they get the profits. They arn't totally stupid these corporations!




Quote:

The initial research is what costs the bulk of the money. Refining a processor to work at 2GHz instead of 1GHz when you already have an enormous market isn't going to bankrupt anybody. Pouring billions into a technology you have no idea will work or even have a market is the risky part. That's the part we pay for.




Please gives us the facts on how much government money has gone into research for Intel and Microsoft. Please provide some facts to back up your assertions, why do you now want to limit it to the 40's and 50's? (Did all R&D stop after 1959?) Must be because you again lack the resources or facts to back up your statements.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I'd be surprised if you weren't aware that Intel wasn't founded until the late 60's.

I'd be interested in reading your sources as well. How about it?

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and the cause me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corperations have been enthroned, and era of corruption in high places will follow, ... and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the republic is destroyed." - President Lincoln sent a letter to Col. Williams F. Elkins

****No because they worked hand in hand with the Nazi's on the Hollerith punch card which sealed the jews fate. Read up on it*****

"Corporate America is the same as corporate Germany or corporate Canada, all are businesses that profit from the less fortunate (people who aren't CEOs). "Greedy corporations" are not only found in this country. "

True, but they are found in that country, easier than in any other, oh sure corporation have inprove our ay of life, but there are to many things to rebel against...For example, did you know that nike pays more money to Tiger Woods to promote te brand, than it pays to all, ALL it's workers in indonesia??? I do not find that fair, and you can say it's just bussiness, but is still sucks, i try my best not to buy anything from u.s.a. (i don't write it in capital leters because i do not like that particular country very much), it's hard, but it can be done.

What the hell am I supposed to write here???

Um...since when has life ever been fair? Furthermore, Tiger Woods sells the shoes that Nike makes, the workers do not. It is business, and thats how the real world works, get over it.

Not to me he fucking doesn't. And if anyone is so stupid that they'll pay $150 for a shoe that costs $3 to make they deserve everything they get.

****There's a big book called "IBM and the holocaust". ***

we all know you can't read alex.

***why do i have this feeling you won't tho.... *****

i won't, but why not cite it? Or is it that you truly have no idea what you say?

weren't you the numbnut that got down on everyone for not knowing about the Bolivian water crises? (where you forgot to cite sources there)...

i won't

No surprises there! Clueless and proud of it, what a combination.

but why not cite it?

If i had to cite everything you don't know about I would be here till doomsday. I have to pitch posts assuming a certain intelligence and knowledge level. I'm clearly pitching way too high for you. I'm sorry.

weren't you the numbnut that got down on everyone for not knowing about the Bolivian water crises?

Oh right, because I know things I'm a "numbnut"? Strange. I always thought it was the other way around. What a funny belief system you have  :laugh:

You mean you can't cite it because you don't know.  Keep it up Alex you're living up to the dolt i've always known you'd be. :grin:

****Oh right, because I know things I'm a "numbnut"? ****

No, you're a numbnut for other reasons but i digress.  You pick out things noone has ever heard of or just make them up and expect the whole world to be able to understand that pea-brain of yours without citing a source or even a general area where your info came from.  When people say things like: 2,299,300 people were killed in russia i'd like to see where that info comes from...... but maybe that's beyond your mental grasp..

I just cited it you dolt. What are you talking about?

You pick out things noone has ever heard of

IBM's part in the holocaust isn't exactly obscure. To anyone who reads something other than Dan Dare comics anyway...

Well thanks for letting me know. My life is now complete knowing you  do not wear Nikes.  :wink: :grin: And if somebody feels like paying $150 for a pair of shoes, what business is it of yours or anybody elses?
