LMOL - yes it is like brick laying in that you don't need a degree in computer science to be a programmer like you don't need a degree architectural engineering to do brick laying. *Your* assumption is that brick laying is an unskilled and not requiring much intelligence compared to programming. The fault is your own if you think it's easy to be a brick layer and that programming is some kind of hyper-intelligent endeavor. Get over yourself.

The quote was apt - one does not need a degree in computer science to be a programmer.

Yo Zippy - no one has outlawed the sale of the confederate flag. Various merchants have decided to not sell it. How very white of you to think it not offensive - especially after the State of Carolina decided to fly it on its capital building after the passage of desegregation laws.

Brave soldiers trying to over throw the United States of America? I suppose those terrorists that crashed a plane into the World Trade Center were brave soldiers too. The Confederate army were traitors. Nothing brave about that.
