Re: How to Destroy Education While Making a Trillion Dollars

OK, I have to put in my two cents. The fact of the matter is that a tablet or netbook that costs $300 or less but is more powerful than a mainframe that cost $3,000,000 in 1980. I really don't think people get this. The mainframe was the IBM 3033. I took a maximum of 32 megabytes of memory and that was regarded as A LOT until around 1990. But now a smartphone comes with more than 512 megabytes. Think about that! Smartphones come with SIXTEEN TIMES as much memory as mainframes from the 80s.

Yeah .... especially coupled with the other $6 billion in cash that the government had to admit just "went missing." Which is why when the Republicans want to complain about "government waste," or the "exploding deficit" or that the President is "spending us into the poor house" .... it makes me wish that somebody would just punch them in the face and tell them to shut the hell up!!

Not me. The Census will be hiring about a half million people short term next year, for the enumeration process. Maybe that is the economic turnaround they are predicting for next year.

Yeah ... I remember there was a MAJOR media blitz for the last 2000 Census!! In particular, they were trying to target the Hispanic population (esp. the illegal immigrants) by saying that ALL they wanted to do was take a count ... and that no other authorities would be called/alerted to their presence. This advertisement seems to be targeting African Americans ... and I'm sure they probably have one for Asians, Native Americans, Whites and Hispanics, as well.
