 Agree with all but a "cooperative" Congress.  That seems to be Obama's mantra...that if Congress would just do what he wants, we'd all be fine.  But it's not about that.  Congress isn't supposed  to be cooperative.  It's not the way our system is set up.   The problem is as you describe it later on in your post.  There is no spending strategy...no discussion of national priorities, no discussion of what actually works fiscally.  It's all R vs. D. and what you "support"...
 Not even close.  We had threads go near triple digits if not beyond.  
Dumb.  As bad as when the person of the year was "you."   
 That's what I thought, too. 
Zuckerberg can't hold Cook's jock strap.  He's a kid who invented something cool.  Now Facebook is practically Orwellian.  Of course he's going to mock Cook's comments...his whole financial empire rests on exploiting data.

Just got my 6 (64 GB) yesterday from an Apple store in DE.  I was trading my locked ATT iPhone 5 32GB.  I was going to order online, but you can't use the Apple gift card credit towards the purchase that way.  Got $180 from Apple vs. $115 from another trade-in site.     Higher capacity phones are indeed an issue.  I couldn't find the 64GB iPhone 6 in any local Apple store according to online stock checkers.  The 6 seems more popular than the plus does at the moment....
