There's no point. 99% of them will never use that knowledge. When it's broke, they either get someone else to fix it or buy a new one.

and thats the difference between now, and 100 years ago. Why should i get a new fridge or pay someone to replace a simple broken blower or fan? its not hard and its a part of life. Knowing these things is good unless you like to waste money

. Implying that they didn't object to paying taxes as much as they objected paying taxes to the wrong people for the wrong reasons and without any say-so in the matter.

I know its not relevant to what the guy you are replying to said, but this line is a perfect fit for the issue at hand. The issue is that the feds want to tax something that they have no legitimate reason to tax, meaning money that was made outside of the country.

dont really disagree. I am in IT myself, couldnt be bothered to learn programming. I made a calculator about 15 years ago and got bored after putting in number 7, so my calc only had digits 0-7, and would error if an 8 or 9 was thrown.

I dont think programing will be dead anytime soon, theres still a steep bar of entry if you are going to be good. graphic design and web design is dead because the market is saturated.
