Happy New Year PCPP community!

Besides the typical ups and downs of school, I had a decent year. I managed to find a summer job as a teenager that I can choose when I work(which doesn't usually happen). I got my own pet, a bearded dragon. I have my driver's permit, at least until April when I can go for my license. There is more other than those highlights too. So, I'd say it has been a pretty good year.

One of the downs I've had is my frustration with the political climate in the U.S. I've been struggling with the fact that other than being a good citizen, I can't do much for it. I can't vote, and obviously can't be voted into a position. I could go on about this, but no need to do that here.
I've also struggled with what I want to do with my life as an adult. I keep saying I want a Computer Science degree, but I don't truely know exactly what I'd do with it. I do have some time to figure it out luckily.

All this to say, I've had a great year, and I look forward to what the next year, and next decade, will bring.

Senate is Republican majority, he won't get removed. Plus, I don't think he should be removed anyway. The impeachment isn't even accusing him with anything under the Constitution, as Enrico411 quotes.

Interesting...well, could always do an engine swap...not as easy though.

When it came to the insurance, I was just more curious what the people would say or think. I figured you could insure it.

Pretty bad. Looks low budget, they went to safe. Youtube doesn't really know what the middle ground is, do they? Either that or they realize that Youtube Rewind has become a meme farm and a joke now.

I see consoles cant keep their own look anymore, look more and more like a PC every release...PCs are still the dominating force in gaming!

Honestly though, if the pricing is anywhere near competitive, it could be dangerous in the gaming market.

Okay, say the economy doesn't get hurt as I have said. The rise in the minimum wage proposed will not really have as much effect. Yes, people will be paid more, but also, with that raise in salary also comes a rise in living costs, as companies need to make up the extra cost somewhere. Therefore, the increase will not actually help as much as they make it sound. Also, it would be more economically friendly to introduce the increase in increments, not all at once.

Every time a significant push for workers rights occurs, the rich cry doom. It's always demagoguery.

I am not trying to vouch for the rich, I am trying to protect the smaller businesses that make up the U.S. economy.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "2020 Presidential Candidates"

If I could vote, I would go for Trump. I just don't agree with the policies other candidates want to enact. One such policy being raising minimum wage to $15 an hour. This will kill our small businusses, which are a huge part of the economy, and will eventually hurt us. What really needs to happen is these people that attempt to live off of minimum wage need to actually do something more. If you don't strive to climb the ladder of success, you won't. Minimum wage was meant to be a starting point, not a full living wage. Also, I completely disagree with the "healthcare for all" policy. All it sounds like to me is the start to socialism. The"share the wealth" mentality that destroys countries.

All just to say that I disagree with what the dem candidates want to do, and I think if any of them get into office, we are in some sort of trouble.

I think PCPP staff could pull off a custom drone site. or at least a DIY RC site. It would be nice for sure. Especially for people like me who want to get into RC(planes/drones), but doesn't know where to start.

huh, I am having a weird rendezvous moment to when I wanted to get into PCs...

  1. Large corporations can aquire/merge with competitors forming monopolies.

There are laws against this. Technically, a monopoly is when one company knocks out all other competition, and that isn't happening. All they are doing is reducing competition, which in and of itself has ups and downs. I don't necessarily agree with it, but that is how it is.

  1. Big corporations make it difficult to create a start up with all the resources and experience they own.

They do make it difficult, but that is because they make their company a trusted name. People are less likely to go with an unknown company, so the bigger a corporation is, the harder it is to start in the business. Honestly, unless your startup is going to be revolutionary for the industry, don't go into an industry that is overshadowed by huge corporations. Try to jump onto the newer industries that haven't quite matured yet.

Last but not least corporations can "buy" politicians to make laws in their favor.

This doesn't have as much to do with the economy as it does with our governemt. People have the right to lobby, and if a company has the money to hire more lobbyists more often than someone else, then they might have more influence. That will continue until the laws ae changed, which probably won't happen.

The problem with algae is it can be invasive to animals, and could actually cause problems. Trees, however, provide shelter and food for them. Plus, I'm not sure about you, but algae doesn't look nearly as appealing as a forest of trees.

The current state of the country has nothing to do with the constitution. It has everything to do with the people in office running under that constitution. It isn't the constitution that's broken. It is the people that are.

So you like going from election to election worried on whether the next president is going to do something stupid and kill us all?

I do agree that the government itself is well set up, but there are some things that could be fixed now, and politics is so bad that you can't even say your party without being spat at and put down.

It's just not something a 13yo would usually look forward to getting, that's all. Unless he was super interested in US politics, which usually isn't likely.
