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?

Oh how quaint, we got ourselves a crusader here...

"Foreign policy" is a bit more encompassing than matters of the Middle East, BTW (but I understand how you might be blind to all else) - it includes also stuff like, say, Operation Condor or coup d'├ętat as a way to make "friends" - or maybe even http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petrodollar_warfare and its background in general

~"The greatest" place which "made it obvious how to make expensive things affordable for everyone" ...well that's one way to call the present export of suffering, using "lesser" people in some places you don't care about. And crazily disproportional usage of resources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Human_welfare_and_ecological_foot...

Oh well, we'll see... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/After_the_Empire:_The_Breakdown_of_the...

But I'm sure you'll just continue this nationalist delusion of being #1 by default.
Not even the worst delusion... in other place you write

I'm convinced that the Bible is the truth. Not because it "tells me so" but because no other explanation makes sense as to the goodness in the world

while seemingly escaping from http://groups.google.com/group/net.religion/msg/30925fd2c9a20cbd? or http://groups.google.com/group/net.origins/browse_thread/thread/251...
(plus, apart from classic dystheism and gnosticism (too bad your Demiurge obviously proffered to brand gnostics as heretics and to suppress them... ;p ), another twist: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maltheism )
