The College-Loan Scandal

hemna Government kills (827 comments)

The reason that universities keep raising tuition costs is because of the abundant number of loans out there and students using them to pay for tuition costs. If those heavily subsidized loans dried up, tuition would eventually come back down. Students couldn't get loans, and couldn't pay the prices and the number of students going to school would slow down and universities would start to feel the hit. When there is a basically infinite supply of cheap money (government loans), then there is ZERO reason for universities to lower tuition. In fact, they would be stupid to do so.

The College-Loan Scandal

hemna Re:at some point... (827 comments)

Didn't your parents ever teach you that nothing in life is free. The reason it's "free" is because the government is stealing money from every citizen to pay the universities to stay open. Teachers don't work for nothing, janitors that clean the classrooms don't work for free, etc. etc. Wake up.

Americas New CIO Wants To Disrupt Government and Make It a Startup

hemna Screw the government. (287 comments)

The best way to reform those massive government agencies, is to eliminate them. The Constitution was a limit on government, we should adhere to that ideal.

Republicans Create Rider To Stop Net Neutrality

hemna Re:Need public effort for Amendment to Constitutio (528 comments)

Some people are actually gullible enough to think that "net neutrality" is the intention of the bill to begin with. The intention is to slowly but surely allow the government to sensor the internet. Just look at what the UN is proposing today.
Just because you oppose the government getting it's hands on freedom of the internet, doesn't make you a corporate love child. Wake the hell up people. The government is the root of almost all the problems we have today. If you don't like Comcast...stop paying them money. Go elsewhere. duh. There are always alternatives to suckballs corporations, but when the government get's it's hands on you...you are a slave to it.

hemna outstanding (528 comments)

The last thing we need right now is the government getting it's hands all over the internet via some trojan called Net Neutrality.

After Learning Java Syntax, What Next?

hemna RUN! (293 comments)

After Learning the Syntax, the VERY next thing to do is run far far away from Java. It's a disaster of a platform. RUN!!! Save yourself.
If you really enjoy pain, then use Java. If you like making the simple problems very complex, use Java. If you like waiting for app servers to restart a lot...use Java. If you like lots of
complicated and noisy xml files just to do simple things, use Java. If you like using lots of resources to serve up simple pages, use Java. Other than that...Java is great!

Firefox Most Vulnerable Browser, Safari Close

hemna uhhh (369 comments)

"Findings from the report point to the continued growth of attacks through Web applications. Web application vulnerabilities continue to make up the largest percentage of the reported vulnerability volume, with roughly 78 percent of all vulnerabilities resulting from them."
That is just stupid. It's like saying the code that the folks at CNN put into their pages is responsible for vulnerabilities in the browser itself. dumb. I think this man is confused between what a web browser is and what a web application is.

Sci Fi Channel Becoming Less Geek-Centric "SyFy"

hemna Re:SyFy? Sounds like a disease (798 comments)

I have to agree. Syfy sounds like a some cutesy pre-teen comic book character name. Then again....this is the same channel that shows 'pro' wrestling ?!!? wtf.

This sounds like the beginning of the end of the channel. They must be following the AIG's of the world.

1. Bring about company FAIL.
2. Get bailed out.
3. Profit.

Barack Obama Wins US Presidency

hemna Re:Two words (3709 comments)

--Do you think he'll get to the bottom of and stop the Wiretaps on US Citizens?

What makes you think he will stop this program? Obama voted FOR it!

America got hoodwinked into electing a Marxist into office. We'll see how far he takes it the first few years. All hail Komrade Hussain Obama!

Anonymous Internet Posting Illegal?

hemna hemna writes  |  more than 6 years ago

hemna (205532) writes "A Kentucky Lawmaker Wants to Make Anonymous Internet Posting Illegal. Kentucky Representative Tim Couch filed a bill this week to make anonymous posting online illegal. The bill would require anyone who contributes to a website to register their real name, address and e-mail address with that site. Their full name would be used anytime a comment is posted. If the bill becomes law, the website operator would have to pay if someone was allowed to post anonymously on their site. The fine would be five-hundred dollars for a first offense and one-thousand dollars for each offense after that."
