CNET reviews have for over 10 years been a sponsored joke among us that know better. Sure they get it close to right every now and then, but most times they are just nodding in the direction of their biggest advertiser.
Why does it seem that the victims of the law are always our legal rights?
Where is the consequence to those that falsely enforce the law in a manner not legally sanctioned?
I think that the immunity that public servants currently enjoy with regards to the being sued should be revoked until they can show that they are not acting out of unenlightened self interest. Too often those people strike first and do not care whether or not what they do is fully legal or enforceable based on law because they know the victims have very little legal recourse. Also they do so to protect their job first and help their advancement in the world of government.
Yeah too true. But those Student loans have to be repaid and for my second masters those costs were over $1250 just for the books. That total is after what I got for reselling the books that I did not want or could not keep.
I think this is a golden opportunity for those Class Action Sharks to jump in and get their 97% fee but in this case is may not give any money back to those that over paid but might help those that come after.
Why have the Colleges and Universities of this country not sought out and promoted more open methods of getting the text books they need for education?
I am sorry but I hate the restrictions that are imposed on students. I left a big Online College where I was working for a second Masters degree because they switched from requiring us to buy the text books with e-book access for each class to requiring us to pay the same amount of money for a e-book only version that had zero resell possibly.
Even worse I lost access to the books I did pay full price for because the DRM scheme involves logging in to your student account. So over $400 dollars for e-books that I can not ever resell (if I don't want to read them again) and re-read if I want to reference again.
So back to my original Title. Universities and Colleges are either getting big kick backs to mot properly serve their students or they are stupid.
So more uninformed people talking about thing they don't know anything about.
I really think that this is a simple case again of 2 things colliding. One political pandering and another of political blame shifting.
The first,Connecticut senator Chris Murphy trying to play to his political base with I am sure some push by the Obama administration for him to be a front man. Not going to jump in to the reasons that Democrats want to control guns but this is about pandering plain and simple.
The second, Sen. Lamar Alexander is trying to not come out and say he is pandering to his base by trying to blame shift. "Guns are not the problem, Violent Video Games are"
Either way it does not address the real issues in this country and instead just shows the pols in Washington have lost their ability to talk with facts and instead default to spin every time.
Ahh, but we don't live in a "supposedly democratic" country. See the founding fathers hated Democracy calling it "Mob Rule".
The USA is a Representative Republic. Unfortunately, the people that the dumb masses have chosen to represent us are raised to that high level of responsibility by a beauty contest instead of actual knowledge and experience. Look at Obama and the experience he had before becoming President. Hell, look at the higher but still low level of experience Bush had before him.
If the people we chose to represent us are people that we "like" instead of choosing people for their skill and knowledge then the US is getting exactly what they want. Those people that look good and say nice things but do not lead us to a better path.
The leaders we have in the US are those that we have chosen and the reasons we choose them have become the wrong ones.
Jay, The Republican party is not the fascist party.
The Republicans did not pass the largest push to control our lives, also known as the Obama HealthCare law.
Fascism advocates a state-controlled and regulated mixed economy; the principal economic goal of fascism is to achieve autarky to secure national self-sufficiency and independence, through protectionist and interventionist economic policies.
