... the head of one agency in the executive branch has said that it needs backdoors to be installed in devices (or the terrorists win). And now there's another agency (in the *same department*) whose "top priority" is the exact opposite?

Huh? And those customers would just keep buying the same amount of the low-margin widgets? Of course they wouldn't.

Lower taxes do help companies prosper. But you're making a lot of generalizations about 'high margin' companies and their benefit to justify fucking over the low-margin ones.

I didn't know BoA had a comparable feature. My past experiences with BoA haven't been good, and literally everything else (other than canceling Private Payments) I've experienced with AmEx has been good - including their removing without question charges I wasn't responsible for the handful of times it's happened.

Comment: Why is this limited to "for-profit" schools? (Score 1) 331 331

It appears that "non-profit" schools as well have responded to the increased loan $ available over the past couple of decades by raising tuition to absorb all of it - which is a big part of why graduates are in so much debt.

Any school accepting governent-tied money should have to pass this test.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
