The problem is NOT funding, The problem is that we have people in charge of the schools that are complete MORONS in regard to technology.

Want to really do some good? design a plan. for the technology backbone in every school and force the schools to adhere to it. Part of the plan is REQUIRED spending on maintenance and replacements. Schools try to use crap forever, I know of TWO schools that still has 10 base T switches in place and Freaking HP routers.

Schools need to be forced to upgrade the gear. All networking gear replaced every 5 years no matter what. Until we get competent people in charge at public schools the technology will continue to be a joke.

Even rich school are running with 10+ year old crap. Honestly VGA for the classroom video to a freaking projector that needed a bulb 2 years ago is shameful.

"You're willing to sit on the sidelines while ISIS engages in a campaign of genocide and ethnic/religious cleansing?"

This has been happening in the Middle East for more than 1000 years. If you think ISIS is something new then you really need to get an education.
Murdering each other is a way of life in the Middle east. Their holy books demand you kill non believers.

Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing...
but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)"

The difference between the factions of Muslims are trivial, yet they murder each other based on this exact passage. ISIS LIVES by this passage and guess what, Thousands upon thousands of groups before them have done the same.

Trying to bring peace to the middle east is as futile as trying to stop the sun from shining.

Problem is that the Supreme court can be stacked which is bullshit. Plus they can vote AGAINST the constitution without recourse. WE need a change in the system. If they ever go against the constitution for any reason, that judge is hanged immediately right there. I want a fracking Gallows in the courtroom to remind these scumbag justices that they are the FOR THE PEOPLE and FOR THE CONSTITUTION.

If these Corrupt judges were actually doing their job, the PATRIOT ACT and the other anti-america laws passed would have already been shot down.

A Supreme court justice is the last protector of the people (not corporations) and the constitution. And we currently have a bunch of party line puppets in place.

In the CM11 themes you can apply the Lollipop theme and pretty much make the whole phone take on the biggest changes of Lollipop without effort.

Plus the new apps are already rolling out so you can have it all today instead of waiting for February to get CM12

Why most of you drive like complete assholes ricking others lives by tailgating or generally driving as if you own the road?

The research needs to be done two ways for reality. 1 - face to face where you have to face the person you are wronging, 2- secret. Bet that people will knowingly hurt others for trivial gains if they can get away with it anonymously.

Yes there is 5% error :-)

Honestly some people that get suckered into the Microsoft Kool-Aid really do know their stuff. And unfortunately a lot of HR departments are far too stupid to understand that certifications mean nothing so they require a billion certs thinking they will get someone that is perfect for the job.

So I can see why youngsters (Under 30) really think they need certifications and they listen to the siren song that Microsoft Bleats as the holy grail to high paying jobs.

A friend of mine is a fantastic thinker and tech, sadly he drank so deep of the MSFT refreshment that he will not even look at a Unix of any type so he is locked into one small skillset that when he has to deal with something outside of that world, he will have no idea what to do.

The biggest mistake you can make is to believe that you are working for someone else.
