At the end of the day they make the decisions for the company.
Which is exactly why pretending that the company is a "person" is wrong.
it's the organizing and.
But we have freedom of association. Which grants us the ability to form a group and pool our resources behind one speaker that shares our views.
I think the problem with Citizens United is that it allows a small group to take over the "voice" of a corporation, and thus use the corporation's resources as if they were their own to amplify their message. Once you say a corporation is a "person", you run into the problem of deciding who that person is, or who controls it.
Basically, the administrators of the corporation, who are themselves employees, get to decide what the corporation as a whole is going to back. Suppose you are an employee with a bonus based on the performance of the company. The administrators can spend part of your bonus on speech that you might be opposed to.
If the people choosing what speech they're going to back were doing it on their own, with their own resources, outside the corporation, that would be a different matter.
@accalia First, that's a seam ripper, not a threadripper.
Second, you can stab someone with that, so even if it was named after that you'd still be ahead. Just stab anyone that says otherwise.
Third, the competition is named "Kaby Lake", which isn't awesome at all.
Was looking at cases, and the Corsair Carbide 600C caught my attention. Looks good for if I want to move on to more advanced watercooling options later (which I do). Big enough to fit a person there. Anyone have experience with inverted ATX cases?
Also, still deciding on the monitors. I'm a fan of the 16:10 ratio over 16:9, so I have a couple 1920x1200 monitors to use, but with the new GPU I was thinking of getting higher resolution screens. Going one step up to 2560x1600 doesn't seem possible, however, since there just aren't any good ones at that resolution, and what is there is two to three times as expensive as a 2560x1440 screen. I may have to join the unwashed masses and resign myself to 16:9 screens at last. Dell's UltraSharp U2515H look to be decent.
@dkf I have the case for the old pc that died, it was fairly roomy, so it should fit well in there. I had a hefty air cooler in that one without issue. I don't recall the name of the model, was a cooler master one. It is black I watched a tutorial for installing the watercooler and it didn't seem to be difficult. Doesn't really take much space since the radiator is intended to be placed in the ventilation space next to the cpu.
Welp, I may have gotten a bit carried away once I had my card out and got to buying things. Still haven't gotten the video card, but what I have so far (links are for illustration purposes only, not the actual location or price I bought them at):
Still missing a hard drive (will probably pick one up when I got pick up the parts from the different sellers), and of course the GPU which I'll leave for the next billing period (next week). Will be fun to see what the onboard graphics allow for with this setup until then. Should be able to build it some time next week.
@Quwertzuiopp I plan to go with water cooling for the cpu, just didn't bother to write it down, since it won't matter as much to the "identity" of the system.
Prices are also "best case". The CPU goes for $360 locally, the motherboard for $243. I can get the GPU for list price if I import it, but that carries its own added costs.
Hmm, tempted to go for a Ryzen system. Parts I'm thinking of getting (priced according to logical increments):
Might be some variance depending on what I have access to here (Amazon doesn't deliver to Argentina, but the situation has improved as of late), and I'll have to pay extra for the parts, but the budget looks to be about $1250. Could shave it down a bit with a GTX 1070 instead of the 1080, but I don't see anything else worth skimping on.
