Hows about instead of trying to force a certain percentage they only take the qualified people? Let say we look at the qualified talent pool for a certain madeup job, using random numbers to show my point. talent pool is 70% type A 20% type B 5% type C 4% Type D and 1% type E normally in a perfect system the company would hire 70% A, 20% B, 5% C etc etc... right? However, IF said company is forced to maintain a balanced percentage, 20% of each of the 5 types what would that do? Type B is perfectly represented (YAY!) Type A gets the shaft, HARD, and types C, D, and E are all vastly over represented, forcing a sense of discrimination against type As. But I guess us Type A's deserve getting the shaft?

So Child Protection Agencies have nothing better to do than go after kids walking home at the age of 10???? I mean I could see at 5-6 but 10 is old enough to be trusted alone. I mean it's not like there are lots of other cases for the Child Protection should actually be doing stuff about...

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
