Yet we require these classes for pretty much everyone who goes to college.
Computers are such an integral part of life today that everyone should really have a basic understanding of how they work and what they're capable of. Learning a programming language teaches you that.
Requiring two programming languages for an ad agency is nutty, but requiring one programming language for all college graduates is very reasonable.
The Democrats killed it.
If the job can't be exported, like cleaning hotel rooms, gardening, picking vegetables, etc. then it makes sense to keep the competition out and reserve the jobs for Americans so that the wages can go up. (and don't say Americans won't do the work - offer them the right pay and working conditions and they will)
So basically, bring the skilled IT workers here and keep the unskilled migrant workers out.
But for the rest of us they're a strain on government services and competition for jobs.
This is why the 1% of both political parties support illegal immigration.
Focus on the Family
(wow, are "Pro-Life" and "Focus on the Family" the best I can do for modern conservative positions/organizations (Moral Majority is old)? I can't think of any that have the name recognition of liberal organizations like "NOW", "NAACP", "Planned Parenthood", etc.. Is that because conservative groups aren't called on as "experts" or as spokesmen for various groups when news organizations are covering stories the way the news organizations use liberal groups as supposed experts/representatives, or is it because of the rule that organizations tend to drift toward being liberal?)
That would be April 2, right?
Oh? Sorry, I thought you said "towell day".
Off on a tangent, one of the reasons America is so divided is too many people have tried to turn every question of policy into a constitutional issue and thus an issue for the courts.
Because the question "is this an issue that is in the government's sphere" is an important one. Many, even most issues that come up in our day-to-day life are not ones that the governments should be covering with a law.
I agree with you that the government shouldn't be regulating so much of our lives. However the idea that all such decisions should be made by the courts is problematic. A Chinese philosopher said you should treat every elder as your father. Another Chinese philosopher replied that you shouldn't, because to treat every elder as your father would mean you treat your father as every other elder.
In America we have enumerated rights because we say those rights are so special and necessary that they deserve special protection. However if we start to treat every issue as though it has the same value as an enumerated right, a right that must be litigated before it can be legislated, then start to treat every right as though it were no more important than any other.
The right to communicate anything with words is special because it is sufficient and necessary to have a debate and discuss what the laws should be and who the leaders should be. The merits of making movies of people having sex is something we can debate if we have the right to communicate anything with words; but we don't need to be able to make movies of people having sex in order to debate the merits of free speech.
