Read The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. The parallels are chilling.

Are you buying a laptop, or making a political statement? I have been
more than pleased with my HP ZE4919 laptop, bought at Sam's Wholesale Club.

Not Toshiba. They've been having problems with service lately.

I'm on my second HP, with no problems at all. It isn't my daily user
(I have a desktop for that) but it's our vacation machine, and they
have both served without problem. As a vacation machine, dependability
is a primary concern, and we haven't had a problem with either one.

I have a Dell Latitude that's been my daily use machine for
nearly two years. Trouble-free (except for the Intel wireless
card, which I swapped for a Dell card), very reliable, very
solid. Excellent quality screen, and good keyboard for a laptop.

It's also a very early production model, one of the first shipped
after a complete redesign of the Latitude product line. They got
the bugs out before shipping, which certainly earns them high
marks!

Just because the Democrats are playing second fiddle these
days it doesn't exactly parallel Nazism. That would be overstating
things although the socialist aspects show some resemblance.
