The presidential debate would be less insane if civics and debate were required courses. Most Americans are clueless to how the government is supposed to work, and aren't capable of disecting a serious argument to separate the lies from the truth. Political pundits have reduced the presidential debates to another form of entertainment for the masses who want to be told to think because forming, analyzing and defending their own opinion hard work.
As usual, jumping to conclusions with incomplete data.
You don't seriously expect people to read beyond the article title before jumping into the comments?
Well it would probably be all scrambled anyway unless we got one of those pirate boxes to descramble it for us....
If the signal wasn't scrambled, all those naked blue-colored girls I saw on a TV as a teenager may actually be naked blue-colored girls... from SPACE!
Ten years ago I had a normal job in Silicon Valley. But those disappeared after the dot com bust and I became a contractor (not by choice). My contract jobs lasted anywhere from four hours to several years. As soon as the end of a contract is in sight, I'm hustling for my next contract job. Every time I land in a company where the employees have worked for eight or more years on average, I just want to scream whenever they ask me why I don't take a normal job.
On the bright side, I'm making more money as a contractor. I recently ran into an old coworker while interviewing for a new job. He's still doing the same job and making the same money when we worked together nine years ago. I'm making 80% more money than him ecause these damn Fortune 500 companies keep making me look for new jobs. Staying at one company and getting 3% raises doesn't add up in the long run.
How much does an unemployed person make?
My unemployment benefits was one-third of my previous income. Eight months and 60+ interviews later, I got a new job two months after exhausting my unemployment benefits. Fortunately, my credit was still good enough that I got a personal loan from my credit union to cover my rent and expenses until my first full paycheck kicks in.
