L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

mike555 "The state" has gone too far (405 comments)

Every time "the state" does something to violate personal freedoms, ask yourself, do you question enough everything they do? They start small but it all leads to things like this or worse. To keep your "questioning muscle" read some extreme libertarian blogs regularly, like Christopher Cantwell's (google it).

Code.org: More Money For CS Instructors Who Teach More Girls

mike555 Re:There is no "shortfall". (381 comments)

So, because you DESERVE and are ENTITLED to your "job security" and high salary (no matter your qualifications etc.), other people do not deserve a shot at it? Interesting logic. There is a shortfall. Try running a business and find some people to hire who really know what they are doing, not just call themselves programmers.
