Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan (2 comments)
This is not the time for the Congress to be playing business as usual. If you have never called or written your representatives in the U.S. House and Senate, now is the time to start.

Those Who Deny The Lessons Of History Are Destined To Witness History Repeated.
Senator Kerry: You, more than anyone else, have the moral authority to remind the nation that what is past is prologue unless we take historyÂ’s lessons to heart. You should be standing side by side with, or maybe even a step ahead of, Representative Murtha.

H1-B Visa Foreign IT Workers and the Immigration Bill (2 comments)
Why would parents encourage their children to take extra math and science in high school and then risk taking massive loans to send them to college for a technical degree when it looks like the corporate and government systems are rigged against them getting a technology job upon graduation? Where is the ROI in that?

Diebold's AccuVote-TS Voting Machine Security (1 comments)
Focusing on the voting machine Â“chain-of-custodyÂ” issue may be like worrying someone will break down your relatively secure back door to rob your house while ignoring the fact that your house has no front door at all and is open to the world.
