    Re: Re: $400 million in legal fees?

    That's still 400 attorneys working full time for a year at a rediculously high billing rate of $500/hour!

    Or it could be 200 attorneys working for 4 years solid at a $250/hour billing rate.

    I guess there are court costs, etc. to figure in, but that amount still seems really high.

    My kids have many teachers that use Facebook as a means for contact, when they need help with an assignment, or even for extra credit.

    Any type of technology could be used for inappropriate behavior between staff and students - email would be the easiest - but let's make use of technology where it can help!

    EXACTLY!!!!

    Mike - you are wrong. You just can't print more money - that's been stated many times here.

    Donald Trump once said when he was burdened with 900 million dollars in debt: He was walking along the street he met a poor beggar, and in that moment Trump told himself “If that man had nothing then he is richer than me by 900 million, because at least he had no debt.”

    So yes - Apple and Microsoft and this anonymous coward who is broke but debt-free all have more money than the government, and when it comes time to pay this debt off, we're going to find that the USA is owned by China and all the other countries that have been buying up our interests like a fire sale!
