Yes lets give all out opportunities to foreign workers, so they wont go home.. I mean those workers we grew ourselves just suck.

But that's the thing - we grew both of them. Both of them went to an American school. All this is attempting to do is prevent them from just taking their education and leaving.

I get paid more then most people and it is because of my hard work and dedication. I'm white and American and I've NEVER had a problem finding a job. If you have issues maybe you should try to learn some more to make yourself more valuable instead of wasting time on /. complaining that people don't reward your lazyness.

Do you really feel that car bombs are just police work? Let me try to rephrase it for people that are living comfortably: if two car bombs went off in New York city and killed eight, would you just shrug that off as normal everyday police work?

Yes. [1]

I'm going to go out on a limb ... from just the summary it would appear that this has very little to do with actions from Apple and has to do with actions from AT&T. If we were required to pick a 'bad guy' in this situation the choice would clearly be AT&T. However, everyone knew it was just a matter of time before tiered data plans started and unlimited stopped as it just makes sense. Yeah no...I get it...free and cheap is nicer...but I'd rather have the tiered data plan then have them go out of business and have nothing.

Power corrupts. And atomic power corrupts atomically.

Working...
