Thank you." top

Where can I get, or obtain resources for, an online/correspondence bachelor science degree for majors like Mathematics or physics with reasonable low tuition fee (for the below average salary class) from an accredited college/university, which doesn't have too be a prestigious one. Time is not MUCH of an issue, that means I am not in too much of a rush to get the degree, just need to be able to pay (Without the need to get loan or financial aids) and accumulate my credits online or via corresponding.
Thank you." top
Timothy (266415) writes "Are we really stopping terrors and crimes by tightening the gates of our immigration system?
Because of our current system, especially after 9/11, I see many good, responsible and hard working people in the States are prevented from reaching their full potential for our country, I see good people leaving the country for good and now let me turn the attention to those who have been "legally treated" as illegal immigrants because our system has allowed those who are richer, those who are more cunning, to have easier paths to obtain green cards than these poor patriot wannabe's. As a result, we have more irresponsible immigrants than we used to, in addition to some of our own citizens who are already lazy and hoping to be further pampered by Uncle Sam. And we see more and more irresponsible and cranky staffs being OFFICIALLY hired in so many minimum wage departments, just so they wouldn't do anything else stupid. What a challenge!
Is this really where our country is heading? For those who want harsher laws against illegal immigrants, do you truly know all of them or are you only motivated by certain terrorist events? For those who want leniency towards illegal immigrants, have we really given deeper thoughts on this issue so it is practical enough to profit a country that values human lives or are we already satisfied at minor benefits such as the increase of tax payers?"
