I'd like to believe a lot of people in this country are naturally enabled to help others, although with a country of over 315 million people, you're bound to have plenty of people that just do not care.

I tend to believe, given the way our economy works, our culture and system, I don't mind the idea of paying for education or healthcare. What I do mind is paying for something that costs way more than what it's worth (i.e. the 500 dollar bedsheet example.)

Education I'd argue is far worse. Ever since the 1970's when the college craze kicked into the United States, everybody was convinced that college was the only way to survive in the real world (total bullshit thinking but w/e,) so over the next couple decades colleges began raising and raising their prices, not because it costs so much money to educate these people, but they saw an opportunity to legally drain people of tens of thousands of dollars because everyone was convinced they were going to starve on the streets and die if they didn't get some stupid degree.

The reality is, now we have a bunch of college grads working in low-grade fields that they didn't major in, large amounts of student debt, and a grossly disturbing lack of skilled workers in the United States. The reality is well over half of all the people that enter college are not prepared or motivated for another extensive set of years of education.

This country has really lost it's fine tuning. College used to be something that appeared entirely optional to someone. Only reason to go was for top end fields (such as law or medicine,) or the growth of ones personal knowledge, which at one point in time was cost effective and your graduate degree actually meant something. Because you were unique.

Healthcare and education costs would not be so high if there weren't loopholes that are exploited.

The reality is, the costs are not high because of our system, they're high because hospitals and colleges act like corporations and take every chance they get to leech people out of unnecessary money.

For instance, hospitals get away with charging 500 dollars for the usage of a bed sheet. Healthcare would be cheap if someone was regulating this, but no one is.

Well yeah, but that's kind of the point isn't it? Our system is very strictly regulated, making sure everyone chips in and is treated equally. You guys have a lot of freedom and are left alone if you have no need of it, but when you do need help, don't expect help from anyone.

Anyway, I'm not an expert on the subject in any case. So I could very well be wrong. It's just the simple way I perceive it.

newsflash update: it DOES work like this.

for example no reasonable mind would come to germany and share 50% and more of his high payed job income with the government, if he had the choice to do the same job, but elsewhere (USA f.ex.) and pay significantly less taxes.
the best thing you could do is, to get the free germany college / university and move to the US to work - if they want you / let u in.

and btw. thumbs down/up don't mean the comments are false/true. i prefer unpopular rather than wrong.

european colleges print money then? money has to come from somewhere
User avatar #73 - coolalliki (12/03/2014) [-]
Simple explanation: we do pay taxes for healthcare and stuff like education, so we do lose money when doing that. But it's a nationally shared burden, so the amount we pay is way less. We might lose some money on taxes annually, but we won't have huge huge debts when we finish school or if we get sick.

She posted something quite straightforward but with a really powerful impact (about how it doesn't matter if white man kills black man and viceversa) and people took it the other way around. One thing led to another and she got a shitload of death threats.

If you admit to not knowing the stuff in the technological market, nor how they work, how can you argue that you are right when there are several other people here who are far more knowledgeable in both fields? Now then, too some arguments from my side. To minimize typing for me, as if I was just going on wildly this would easily be a couple of thousand words I will just respond to your claims. If you want to address any other topic feel free to bring them up and if I have the time I will respond.

Apple did not perfect the mp3 first of all nor did they perfect it. It is locked down rather hard and requires extensive software to just transfer whatever content you want on your device. Ofc we have the issue of their pricing which is just plainly ridiculous but you probably already knew that as most people even admit. Their mp3 did not even support a good amount of formats nor any superior sound quality considering the price tag. The mouse, they did not popularize the mouse, it was already popular for those who used computers, which were few. The mouse came at the same time as graphical terminals were coming and apple was just following everyone else there. Hell, they even did not add two buttons until the mid 21th's century. Regarding the touch screens, they made by samsung, designed by samsung and sold by samsung to apple. They did nothing there. If you have viruses that is partly because of you. Apple is merely using the *nix system which is much more resistant to viruses. I admit that is a smarter choice of framework than windows, but this is not a mere windows vs mac discussion. If you start talking hardware problems note that all hardware parts are made by 3rd party distributors, except the casing which in apples defense, they make them self.

As a PC/windows user I have to say, apple products do look nice.
Still pretty expensive, and I can get a laptop/desktop of similar specs for much less.

From personal experience, I've been using a low end Toshiba (reliable brand imo) laptop for 7 years, and it still works (And I don't usually take good care of my stuff).

Your ineptitude at using a PC without getting it infected by viruses is not a reason that Apple is good, it is a reason you should not be allowed near computers.
User avatar #11 - thenippyone (09/10/2014) [-]
idk man, Apple stuff is expensive. Lookin now, 1000 Euro for a desktop iMac that has an i5 dual core 2.7Ghz CPU and an integrated graphics card, 500GB HDD and 8GB ram.

I got an HP laptop for 250 Euro that has a intel pentium dual core 2.2Ghz CPU, integrated graphics and 4GB ram, and it's running virus free so far.

Sure Apple stuff is neat and higher quality and has better support, IF you got the money.
