Google Well, this has been a very, very long time in the making. Google has finally unveiled its big Dropbox competitor: Google Drive. You start with 5GB for free, and you can go all the way to 1TB for $50 per month. This is a big deal for many (if you were to use rumouring as a gauge), but all I can think of is this: why on earth would you entrust your files to a company - any company - whose sole interest is extracting money from you, and who, to boot, is subject to crazy American laws?

For one, I'm pretty sure you didn't do crap for the world (and neither did I, but that's not the point). What's that "we" you're speaking of?


This is also hypocritical of the universal thought. We're to blame for everything, though we didn't do anything?

Playing empire? That's not what we are doing. We're trying to keep things sane. This occupation of the middle east and other countries who want to blow us to bits is NOT occupation. Rome going into Mediterranean lands so they can have their "roman lake" is occupation. This is saving you from being blown off the earth. And I'm the one who can't form logical thoughts? I'm just tired of arguing with idiots on the situation. Notice how each comment in regards to to what I said was met with insult. Yeah, good case you got there. If you aren't living here, don't judge us. We're doing what we can. We know what OUR problems are, do you know what YOUR problems are in YOUR country? People like me are fighting a fight here that is NOTHING what people in other countries think it is.

We know who's to blame for Europe falling, we know who's to blame for the fall of the USA. It's not the people, it's a specific group (read up on Unions, they just love to have jobs without working and get paid for it, then infiltrate world gov'ts.)

So don't come at me with "crazy American laws" because we set things straight. Our constitution is the greatest in the world because we give gov't NO power. "Negative liberties" Obama calls it. No no, POSITIVE for the people, negative for the jerks who want power.

If you guys are so anti-America, get off the internet that we developed, stop driving our cars, stop using our guns and our other inventions, and for heavens sake quit using free market and you'll be begging for our help!

As an American, I just laugh off most insults hurled towards the US and don't let it get to me. Getting upset at someone's opinion really doesn't accomplish anything. Sure, the US has it's problems - corrupted politicians taking handouts from companies, which in turns produces some really stupid laws. But, every country out there has it's own share of problems (including laws that make no sense). Stupidity is not unique to one geographic location on this rock. There are dumb laws and regulations on everyone's books. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion to their views and beliefs - getting upset due to their's differing from your own doesn't accomplish anything.

Just because you think you have a good reason doesn't make it not an occupation. But hey, thanks for saving us from the non-existant WMD's.

We're doing what we can. We know what OUR problems are,

Then fix those problems and mind your own business.

do you know what YOUR problems are in YOUR country?


Yep.

read up on Unions, they just love to have jobs without working and get paid for it, then infiltrate world gov'ts.


Uh, oh yeah. God help us if the underprivileged of the world gets an actual voice. Clearly we all need to trust big business to care for our well-being. Or not.
Union serve an important purpose as a counterweight to business interests.

Our constitution is the greatest in the world because we give gov't NO power.

Funny, I was just thinking the same thing.
