I find it interesting how many people jump at the opportunity to criticize the US, because as we all know, the US is the only country with faults. I guess there are a lot of people drinking the Hater-Aid.
Come on people, lets not condemn a whole country for the acts of a few individuals. A country should be judged on the will of its people and not the whims of politicians, diplomats, and/or industries.
A few others have touched on this already but if Obama is so OK with their methods, why not lead by example?
I say just to show everyone how reasonable these methods are, the entire First Family should proceed through these scanners followed by being fondled by the TSA agents. I am sure he will be completely fine with this, since after all, these are the only effective ways of finding terrorists...
On a side note, shouldn't it bother EVERYBODY that there is a government issued scanner that must delete the scanned images from fear of said pornographic images being released? Doesn't that alone scream "somethings not right!" or at least quietly whisper "rut-ro". Why even scan such sensitive images?
I completely agree with your first half, but fail to see your logic in the second half.
First off, that little jab about the terrorist being funded by "lovely US citizens" was in bad taste. Second, no country should be OK with being attacked on their own soil. It's one thing to be tough about being attacked, but to not be bothered by it is just insanity.
And as far as the "war on terror" goes, if you have been listening to Obama, the US has stopped fighting that war since about his fourth day in office. Now the US is in a "war on al Qaeda".
You should probably be a little less concerned about how citizens should be treated in the US and focus on your own homeland. Britain is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, nanny state of them all. Maybe you should be more focused on how your country is treating its citizens and stop being so judgmental about other nations' actions.
Thus they would be learning through crowdsourcing (keyword Learning). And if that would be considered cheating then I guess forming study groups is also cheating. Plus, not every question would be on the test and the teacher should supply at least half of the questions (which still may be too much work for this particular teacher unfortunately).
On a side note, I am not sure about FL but here in VA there are some professors making $+100K a year (not counting side jobs). For that kind of money the professors damn well better be making their own tests!
Ah, but there is always a way around the law. It usually requires substantial sums of money but in this case, it could be bypassed by merely not procreating. No kids, no future generations. This is of course assuming you have no other family members. For instance, being an orphan would qualify.
Don't forget about the money, they love themselves a side of money to go with that heaping helping of control. Although, I suppose they can always just print more money. I mean, who cares what happens to the economy as long as they get to do what they want, right?
Man they are tricky little bastards, they could care less about national security. This is simply a money grab from a government about to spend itself into oblivion. They know full well that most companies aren't going to redesign their entire system just to implement a huge security flaw. So the government will simply offer them a small "monthly fee" for not doing so. Now multiply that fee by the thousands upon millions of internet based communication systems/software and in the words of Will Smith, "CHA-CHING!"
I can't speak for all Web Designers, but a big part of web design is finding a site that the client likes and modeling their site after it. You don't however just copy and paste the entire html. Most web designers don't care if you copy segments of their code because they most likely found code from someone else too, but to not change any of the information is more than just bad practice.
That said, no web designer is ever going to put a site out live without getting the expressed permission from the client. They are getting paid whether it goes live or not so their, "but it was the web designer's fault", excuse isn't going to cut it. They are the ones who decided to put it live, not the web designer. Its their responsibility as the client to go through the pages to be sure the content is correct, not the web designer. And if they did give the web designer complete and unchecked authority on what content gets put up then they are even more so responsible for the content of the pages than if they designer had gone rogue.
You realize first of all that is only hurting you local business owners who had nothing to do with the oil spill, secondly BP can sell its gas to other gas stations. So unless you request to see where the oil came from everytime, there is a possibility that you are still buying their oil.
Well I know pot holes could cause the system to not work. The highways in my fair city are just now getting back up to speed from all the pot holes caused by the crazy winter we had. But I can thank my state government for maintenance.
Well for one, that would require them to actual adapt their business model. And we all know how willing they are to do that. Secondly, they have no concept of pricing when it comes to digital versions. They would want to charge the same price as an actual DVD. Just look at what some ebook companies are doing.
Yeah this [shitty] country is becoming more and more shit with this kinda [shit], it's all the shitty parents who don't want to look after their own [shitty] children that they only had for the [shitty] baby bonus... [Shit!]
There you go, added a few more shits in there for you. Your Welcome.
