    As of July 1st 2018. DRAM mfg's/vendors will not be allowed to do business in the United States unless the Ram is also packaged with a cookie and sold at the market price of said cookie. Saw that today. About time some one stood up to em!

    Double the price? Whoa, where'd they get such good deals? Most the RAM pairs I've seen for sale have been closer to triple the prices I remember from 2016.

    It's about control over other men. What is money? It's a unit of value and the value is derived by the faith that it's worth someone else's time. People going to work everyday is what gives value to money, money is useless paper but most of us have agreed to work a 9-5 or whatever to get our share of the pie.

    So when you look at today's wealth distribution a very small percentage owns most of the value(a man's time, quantified), you see that the mega rich look at it more like modern day slavery where they own the majority's time spent. If you cleared more in a week or a month than what the average person makes in their lifetime you might start to feel like you own other's simply because you could buy their life's work many times over.

    Of course the game has been perfected since the days of actual slavery or feudalism so they give us the illusion that if you work real hard and get lucky you too can be super rich. In my experience only the most depraved individuals become filthy rich.

    I'm not advocating socialism or any ism at all, I just think it would be cool if people knew the real value of their time and the multiple ways that evil people have been using to siphon it away from the general public.

    catch 22 - hefty fines for them being arseoles - then prices remain high to cover the loss

    Government will like it, money in their back pocket. The only thing we get is a scare tactic, hoping that they do not rip us off again
