I've had it with the political articles. There are plenty of websites for those. Slashdot USED to be "News for nerds, stuff that matters". I'm not saying this story doesn't matter. But it has no place in ANY tech forum. I will surely visit from time to time but will no longer follow on my FB page. Adios.
Ditto the touchscreen voting machines and every other apparatus they come up with in their attempts to do away with the paper ballot, which has worked just fine for over 200 years. Just because it's more modern doesn't make it better.
Is Slashdot TRYING to lose readers? I thought this was a TECH forum.
What's up with all the political articles? Starting flame wars? I come to
Yes, it's news. Yes, it's probably important. But WHY IN THE HELL is it on Slashdot? It's crap like this that keep my away.

I'm' trying to break into an IT career at age 42. Lots of personal but no employment experience in IT. "Go to college" they said. "It will help you break it." I graduate next year.

I'm amazed by how society is tolerating this overt age discrimination. If all of us over 40 were black, this would have been solved years ago.
Just what the world needs, more lawyers. No thanks.
New York City is probably more productive than most of the other cities cited in the article based solely on their raw populations.
This is happening under the Obama admin. His people don't give 2 shits about H1B abuses (hi So. Cal. ConEd!) Sanders' actual party affiliation is Socialist. Obama is a Socialist who calls himself a Democrat so I hope you've learned your lesson here.
But (I predict) probably not.
I plug an ethernet cable in whenever I need to download or transfer a lot of files or one large file because it's a lot faster.
There are several medications doctors prescribe although they and even the researchers that invented them don't how or why they work.
Unless you're like me and purposely ignore such garbage. AND YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!
Mr. Durbin and Mr. Sessions were not pleased with the brush-off.
“We did not ask for speculation; we asked for an investigation,” they said in a joint statement.

It's a REAL expensive bitch as it is to enforce patents and these patent trolls are going to make it worse because of our knee-jerk reactive society.
I think this summarizes most problems with our current legal system.
