"To keep the pool of employees huge and the pay low? "

Well you have the answer right there, but seemed to miss it somehow.

This is not a feel-good story of congress doing something positive for the USA's fail-sauce edumication system that leaves no child behind by slowing down all the children and teachers.

It is simply morally corrupt politicians ensuring more meat for the IT grinder run by their campaign donors to help lower IT wages.

Very plain, very simple.

Don't believe me? Where is the 100 cosponsor bill to fix the rest of the education sector?

Oh, that's right...nowhere.

So true.

We live in the days of global warming and wanting to find new ways to be more efficient with our power use.

But of course people burn megawatts to do useless calculations to "discover" hidden codes that are given "value" through mystical means - backed by fiat currency too just to make more of a mockery.

Almost as bad as the stock exchange and all the high freq. traders....almost.....

Lol. My emotions are not at all inflamed in the slightest. Typically i just ignore such but occasionally like to indulge. Please be aware (if you able) that my response was not in anyway for the benefit of the troll.

I am merely making a very accurate and insightful observation. One whose truth bites deeply apparently. So i will consider this a measure of success.

Neither of these posts were worthy of a response at all but again, sometimes i indulge.

And yes. This post is smug.

Polynesians tend to be physically larger and their culture's were warlike but that may have had more to do with scarcity of resources on tiny islands.

Although murder for gain is a human trait as evidenced by all of recorded history. We tend to call it by other names as well: Conquest, expansion, empire building, etc.

But in the end it almost always is just good old redrum.

Then you are a sad and pathetic human being too simple minded to even begin to process it due to the brain damage that prevents you from honest introspection. I honestly pity you.

My ancestry contains native NZ Maori hence my interest. Maori are essentially Polynesian descendants who became a separate ethnic group in their own right. There is debate as to which of the islands in particular the first Maori migrated from.

Because the word "Polynesian" means "many islands" in its Greek derivative. An apt description of a common people's who migrated bravely across miles of ocean to populate a host of islands.

Information easily obtained from the web also...

Unless it was a tongue in cheek joke...in which case a bad one.

I am a NZer also.

In my mind everyone involved was very naive.

- The majority NZers are political sheep. If it was not written verbatim in the corporate paper of their choice they don't think/believe it. Its a baaaaad way for a country to be.
- The police where exceptionally naive in calling out a swat raid on the heresay of the US authorities and the SIS.
- The SIS were naive to think they could away with this BS without fallout.
- The government was naive to let this all slip by them.
- Dotcom was naive to think NZ was a country he could be safe in.

And you are VERY naive to think London/UK is any better with regards to any of this...

I have no evidence for this but I did have to wonder when I heard the news. Also he is cheeky, dodgy and clever enough to do such a thing.
