Why are you turning this into an attack against me, because I disagree with you?

It makes no sense to allow foreigners to affect the voting process in another country, no matter who does it.

If you can't legally vote in the election, you shouldn't be part of the process. Look up the word "integrity."

Same with corporations. They're money gives yhrm influence over a group of people who are not supposed to favor one group over another because of a political donation. If you believe in the cause, great. Being swayed by ideas is a political process. Making laws because someone gives you money to pay you to do it is graft.

Yeah, that moronic law student who testified she's spending more than $80 a month on birth control must never have time to study. I think the health department should be looking at these kids for the sake of public health: that much sex with that many partners has GOT to be public health risk!

Also, isn't this why the libs support Planned Parenthood? Don't they provide birth control for FREE??? No, wait, they support PP because they don't want ethnic children born, they want them aborted... my bad.

Millions could be saved by Steam by making the community work for free. The article describes basic estimates on how much is saved by Steam in translation costs."

You're right... his statement was too generic.
Projects you did for an ASSIGNMENT should not count, unless it's "Come up with something new and revolutionary" and there's been no suggestions by the prof.
I agree with you... if you're doing an independent study or research project, and it's something you did all by yourself, it counts.

If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
