How Good Are Charter Schools For the Public School System?

SirLanse Re:Can't we at least learn something? (715 comments)

That is what the teachers union is REALLY against.
It requires discipline, and work from the teachers.
It requires firing teachers that have quit caring.
It requires giving kids a choice in what they want to learn. Let a kid that does not want to learn Algerbra, learn a trade. Maybe learn something that cannot be outsourced to India.

NY Police Get Tall SUVs To Combat Texting While Driving

SirLanse Perspective on cleavage (319 comments)

The real advantage will be the perspective on women's cleavage. Also look for them spending a lot of time around sports cars with women in them.
Some women have to move skirt to use a manual tranmission. Perspective on that will be maintained.

Anonymous Organizes Global Protests For WikiLeaks

SirLanse skip wiki get soldier (275 comments)

Julian did NOT swear to defend the United States, his job was not to protect the US and its valuable data. He should be persona non-grata and never get a visa into the US. The soldier who betrayed his country's trust however, should meet a firing squad as quickly and publicly as possible. The secrets he revealed, do not point to massive crimminal activity by the US government and/or members of the government. They merely embarrass embassy officials and those who told them things in confidence. Our ambassadors will not get as much honest information from others any more. It has had a chilling effect on our relations with other countries. For this BETRAYAL OF TRUST, he should be shot.

TSA Bans Toner and Ink Cartridges On Planes

SirLanse Friday night frisking (633 comments)

I was going to have a few drinks and go throught the TSA lines a few times. The only problem is the airport has a no smoking policy. I would need a cigarette after the frisking. :)

Researchers Test Space Beer

SirLanse 0g plane is the Vomit Comet (113 comments)

They call the plane that does the 0g roller coaster the Vomit Comet. This is where they want to test the beer for drinkability? Will they use Ale or Lager yeast and how will they decant it? It will need a filter and wont be very clear. A couple cans of Foster's 5.1% will make the trip to Mars go faster.

National Park Service Says Tech Is Enabling Stupidity

SirLanse Re:This is wrong.- dont blame new tech (635 comments)

When they came out - the Map and Compass made explorers much bolder than they where before. How bold of an explorer would you be without them? There are an unknown number of people using the new technology without needing rescue. Take away all the tools and many people would only explore the lint in their belly bottons. (some of those can still get lost)

National Park Service Says Tech Is Enabling Stupidity

SirLanse Re:Insurance - Youtube (635 comments)

Put them on Youtube and let Dennis Miller do voice over to explain how stupid they are. The ranger station can have a "Best Of" section for climbers to view before hand.

SirLanse South Park and MP3s (366 comments)

These bozos have missed the whole South Park paper cut outs that are popular. Amimation outside of Pixar is terrible, but the story can carry it. An MP3 from ear buds? That is a great listening experience? If the song is good, the kids don't care. If the story is good, your brain will fill in the spots between the dots.

Senate Approves the ______Act Of____

SirLanse Re:Sorry, What?? (571 comments)

1) The goverment taking out loans to send money to selected few is BAD. Cut taxes, why should the money go through DC to go back to those with connections? Just stop taking it from earners. 2) Healthcare - again putting DC in the middle between sick people and the doctor - ALL BAD. It is not Amazon when the federal government is you competition. They make the rules and own the ball. You cannot win against them 3) They took over the student loans, DC controls it so you there is less choice on where you can get the loans. 4) They added 2000 pages to the Wall Street forest to hide in. Some reform, but more rules that will go to court to be interpreted and argued while ripping us off. 5) We are still in Iraq and Afganistan, playing nice. 6) Google "Greece financial collapse" - Yes you missed something.

Senate Approves the ______Act Of____

SirLanse Re:Any objections? (571 comments)

You are wrong on so many levels about so many things. The Tea Party are ashamed of Bush. They voted for a conservative and got a NEO Con who spent way more money then expected. He went after terrorists, ok, but let the dems run the economy at home. The Tea Party wants a smaller federal government, not just "our guys" running it. If you want the government to run you, stay in Calif or Mass. Let the rest of us run our own lives. You seem to forget how miserable Carter was as a president and how miserable the country was under his "leadership". Obama is reminding us of those days. It was Carter that made Ronnie look so good.

Senate Approves the ______Act Of____

SirLanse Re:What is the Community Reinvestment Act? (571 comments)

The mortgage meltdown is the Barney Frank and Chris Dodd show. Clinton's proposals were reasonable and Bush had his eye on the War on Terror. Any attempts by Bush to check on Fannie Mae were met by calls of racism. It was Barney Frank's lover that ran Fannie and got it to be the biggest morgage holder in the country. It was allowing Fannie to buy rotten loans for McMansions that got us here. It was Bush's watch, but it was Frank and Dodd's doing. Now, instead of closing down that misbegotten hole, we are sending more good tax money into it. Instead of letting poorly run companies fail, we bail them out and then try to tax the executives. Don't bail them out any more money and the salary bonuses will take care of themselves.

What's Wrong With the American University System

SirLanse Re:That it's required for most employment these da (828 comments)

If you have a passion for a field while in your early teens, that is GREAT. I envy you. The rest of the population that does not know what they want, until much later, need to have some base education. The school system is also meant to give a foundation that all the people have, so they can communicate with each other. They have a shared body of knowledge that makes it possible to skip a lot of the things you need to cover if you are talking to someone home schooled in China.

What's Wrong With the American University System

SirLanse Re:What's wrong with it? (828 comments)

You must be trolling or have never created anything yourself. You have never put your blood sweat and tears into a project and seen your partners redistributing your wealth. If truly excelling above everyone else is not possible, people stop trying. If losing everything is not possible, people stop trying. Children should learn that flunking out has consequences. Excellence has its benefits. The kids who fail a test should stay late and mop the floor, to get used to what the future holds for them.

House Proposes Legalizing, Taxing Online Gambling

SirLanse How is it different (473 comments)

Ok I am not allowed to bet on an electronic card, but I can bet on GM and Exxon for a couple hours at a time. How is Day Trading, not gambling? The real problem with it is using the money to fund bigger government. Can we make sure that the idiots that go broke gambling, are not eligible for food stamps?

Why Computer Science Students Cheat

SirLanse Re:Why Computer Science Students Cheat? (694 comments)

The big difference between CS and English, Bio, Eco etc. If you get a 4.0 gpa in CS you WILL have job offers. :) The intro courses when I was in college had 75-90% mortality. By senior year only the strong survived. Send them back to Poli-Sci where Obama will provide.

Supersizing the "Last Supper"

SirLanse Re:"Scholars"? (98 comments)

You seem to missing the towel headed bombers that foam at the mouth. The ones that deny the holocost and blame the US for the earthquake in Haiti. The Catholic church may not change dogma with each scientific discovery, but they are far from the biggest luddites on the planet.
