Comment Re:VocTech Programming (Score 1) 187

This isn't "some trash bootcamp degree". People who get past the initial training/testing phase, come back for 3 - 5 years. And that initial training is no joke. They aren't training javascript monkeys. It's serious C coding. In fact, I would bet people who actually make it through the entire program will be far better programmers than what a traditional college CS program can produce. These people aren't learning history, English, and all that other shit. They only do programming. 12 hours a day.

Snowden curated nothing. He released a ton of information that had nothing to do with possible rights violations to journalists and most of what they've released also has nothing to do with possible rights violations. The net effect is that he's just as guilty as Assange. Snowden knew what programs had legal issues and he should have only given the journalists the relevant documents rather than dumping tons of highly classified materials to journalists who aren't trained to know what the fuck to do with that kind of material.

There are lifetime caps. Your policy will determine what doctors you can see. With mine, I can see pretty much anybody I want.

As for prior conditions in another country, I don't see how it matters. They're not allowed to ask you about them in the first place. Keep in mind that this all assumes you sign up during open enrollment. After that, the rules change a bit.
