Educate yourself about what you are saying before you get in an argument.
Minority can afford FASTER & BETTER treatments, read the entire post before claiming i lack any sort of an education.
By American standards, your system is not all that efficient.
I'm not discussing any sort of standards with this, i haven't made any attempt to compare health care systems -- YOU did and got a single reply to straighten some facts & truths. From my perspective, brains drain caused more damages in Canada than in the US though since, after all, the US recruits our or any other countries' newly trained Doctors by offering them **MUCH** higher salaries and work conditions. For profits, i must add.
Only Vermont does NOT have a balanced-budget provision in state law.
What's California (and any other states) cumulative debt? I'm not talking state Law, i'm talking Expenses that keep being higher than Revenues.
So you consider giving ISPs the right, indeed the requirement, to monitor every move their customers do online to be a rational answer to piracy?
No, i'm saying that the ISPs ***allow*** Piracy to take place and that the only other corporations tapping into the Klondike of communications costs to the public are those who use the Internet to distribute or sell in partnership with ISPs. I do not give or take anything to/from both, *except* when i pay my invoices for a service.
The rational answer to Piracy is at the personal level of each one USING 1)ISP 2)Products. A thief fails both situations.
...An excessive judgement does not erase the original offense.
Directly proportional to what invaluable 24 songs exactly and for the exaggerated GAIN of money paid to who? Lawyers, RIIA?
The crime (by the original offense, as you interpret it) has turned into a scam, heist, robbery, abuse, opportunity, supplemental profits for OTHERS.
BECAUSE it is 1.92 millions worth of clear theft less the real value of 24 songs ***IF*** paid for.
I guess you'll never understand the logic in pure Honesty. It's constitutionally wrong to let institutions steal money from people as much as it absurd to get in a court of Law to abuse the consequences of commercial transactions that failed or not. At that stupid level of incompetence by jury decision(s) and nit-picking $24 of I-Tunes downloads by someone.
Sue me for being rational if you dare.
