What is bothering me about this is that the Executive Branch (DOJ) is investigating the Executive Branch (CIA) for spying on the Legislative Branch (Intelligence Committee). How hard could the DOJ possible push this?
No, I think you missed the point. He is saying that they are welcome to keep things out of the public domain, they just have to pay through the nose for the privilege. Maybe do an progressive tax. So say Mickey Mouse gets taxed at 5% the first decade, 15% the second, 40% the third, 75% the fourth, and 95% for the rest of the time after.
I read on my phone as well, but I just can't imagine zoning out and reading on my Google Glass. But then again, I haven't tried it so maybe I would enjoy it. In any case, I would try not to be a creep.
I like the addition of extra spaces at the end of the lines, but it seems like you could easily encrypt FAR more data if you made the spaces themselves vary in width. Or maybe vary the distance between each consecutive character in the sentence.
I am not a cryptography expert, but it seems like you could break it down on smaller parts of the original document.
The son of a guy who mowed lawns in our neighborhood was recently shot and killed by police after an alleged car jacking. The police commander made the following statement to the media, "This young man made a bad choice and paid for it with his life."
I find this sickening that police officers get to make the decision on how that young man was to pay for his crime. That is assuming he even did it since no cop actually witnessed it happening.
If police want the trust and respect of the community, they need to have a 180 attitude adjustment over their role in that community.
Well, it seems that if they like what they do and want to stay for the flat rate pay, then good for them. I think what I was getting at was that mediocre teacher would be there until they didn't feel the money was worth it and then move on. One does not preclude the other.
Teachers make shit when they are first starting out and have to spend hundreds of hours writing all their lesson plans from scratch and spend hundreds of dollars of their own money on supplies for the room. This all assuming they can even find a job.
Then when they get cushy and bored from not having to improve their lessons or freshen up the room, they are making a ton of money and likely cannot be fired.
I saw a great proposal that all teachers should be paid a flat rate with no raises ever. Said flat rate should be very high - say $100-125,000 per year. This would pull in the best and the brightest to teach and cause them to leave and do something more productive after a few years of no raises.
High turnover for teachers would be a good thing if it prevented stagnation. My most boring, ineffective teachers were all on the tail end of their careers.
Likely, this would also require a loosening of the teacher's licensing requirements. However, if all the people chasing those $125,000 paychecks are smart people who are motivated, then who cares if they have a teaching certificate!
