Talking about Microsoft makes changes to appease EU – U.S. Business – MSNBC.com

Wait a minute, I have a big problem with this.  The EU is forcing a product on other countries that may or may not want it.  I think this is clearly a violation of international trade laws.  Essentially the EU is forcing the dumping of a product on foriegn markets without their permission and it is using Microsoft as the vehicle to push it’s policies abroad….this is just plain wrong.

Talking about Religious zeal sets U.S. apart from allies, poll finds – U.S. News – MSNBC.com

SO someone took a poll on the "regligious zeal" in America and the article talks as if this is a good thing?

I’m actually quite alarmed that being a zealot is considered a good thing.  In fact I’m alarmed that we’re the only country (according to this poll) that thinks mixing religion with government is a great thing.  Fortunately we don’t practice what the poll is preaching.  Other countries are more theocratic than we are by far.
