I thought that quote from Al Gore turned out to be taken slightly out of context. (although he did say it, so maybe it was just misinterpreted) But wasn't he involved with the group that developed the World Wide Web?
Nice video with Al Gore. Couldn't he look into the camera instead of staring at the cameraman's crotch? And as a Board member, did he not know what was going on? He must be out of the loop. So, what exactly, does he bring to the table?
Texas doesn't care about stolen IP, nor would any other state. They care about jobs. Don't be surprised if they even throw in some cash. This is how large corporations act now. Threaten to move jobs unless public money is 'invested' into the 'partnership'. The auto industry has been doing this for years now. This is modern capitalism.
It's called compassion, my friend. Look it up. Too bad you weren't born into poverty or you might have a better understanding. There is a saying 'Don't judge another person unless you've walked a mile in their shoes.' You probably just step over the guy lying on the sidewalk dying from diabetic shock.
