I know that in Michigan(and I believe California too) that affirmative action was voted illegal. I remember a bunch of overweight black woman on the news protesting but the court of appeals denied it. They then tried to allow the schools themselves to on an indivigual basis allow white and male discrimination but were denied. Everytime the news asked a in shape black male or a woman in general they were either ok with the idea or at least not insane. I know that not all overweight black woman are crazy but why does the news and the movies (every movie with a large black woman ever made for example) make them out to be insane? Mabey I've just been in the woods too long but its hard to think of an entire group of people being that nuts.

Sorry got off topic there, anways has anyone heard of other states leaning towards the making it illegal too? Michigan has a lot of URM downstate and even they for the most part voted against it. Its time to move on, if you score a D grade you dont deserve an A just becuase you have a different sex organ and a natural tan. At least according to the voting polls.

While I am no where near rich enough to burn any money, I can see your point from a national economy perspective. That being said I still find it odd how the feds and locals will spend time on one thing and not others that brag about their crimes. They went after Napster on far lesser grounds.

I'm suprised that mentioning special accomidation due to disability isnt illegal as a form of discrimination.

I remember towards the end of highschool they had us take the ACT/SAT I dont think it was mandatory but done for free and highly encouraged. I dont remember my score either, but to be honest I never used it anyways. I got my first few credits in the service and then went to community college(which had its own super-easy admissions test) to get my first AA before transfering to bachelors. I dont think any community colleges even look at it do they? I know 4year colleges normally do but if you have over 15 transfer credits I think they dont look at it normally after that either(I was over 60 myself but I think thats what the policy is at most places)  Did anyone have to use their ACt/SAT score at local colleges?

I guess they know er're more likely to pay it off if we have a doctorate degree than if we're just moving across town for another minimumwager. Does the fed still regulate it at all or is it all private?

The american dollar is loosing value by the minute, and trying to protect the ones in circulation against being further devalued isnt important? What is? They have the time to investigate and arrest illegally downloaded songs dont they? Which is worse defacing the US dollar or stealing a penny from snoop-poodle?

Oh, perhaps there's this idea that government only has limited resources, and these limited resources should be spent on more important things.  Just a thought.   :P

Reminds me of when I was a kid at the zoo. One rhino poos, the one behind it sniffs it thinks about it and poos.

I see, I see.  I'm also the type of person that goes with the flow, and realizes that "stuff" happens in life.

Thanks. I went to the wheres george site again and found their offical justification being that in their opinion they aren't defacing it beyond use. Seems like skating on thin ice to me. A judge can still convict someone was vandalism on a wall even if they thought it was "art". Their offical explanation for their actions can be read at 

Whats weird is they give a link to the place that you can report them to.

I'm assuming that at least someone has already told the Treasury Dept about their site by now and its still  up so whatever on that one I guess.

As far as when I see penny smashing machines in the future I'll probally keep note just to see what the Secret Services responce is to it. Its odd how the same group that protects the presidant, arguably the most impportant job in america, also enforces a rule where you cant get more than 6months max in jail for(according to their site)
I think a teacher told me once that it was due to the fact that they also protect former presidants graves and the bills have presidants faces on them. In theory then, the money with Susan B Anthony and Sachajawee(sorry if I spelled it wrong) wouldnt be protected by the secret service and only the dept of treasury I guess huh?

Why you overseas and what area? You military or just taking the summer off touring Europe?
The farthest that I've been this summer so far is the next county over to fish. I'm jealous.  :)

As for your school I say call or email their admissions dept. they should be the best source of information on that. Have you gotten an offical letter of admissions in the mail yet? If not, you might still be in but you need to contact them for them to tell you for sure. With Cooley I had a student id# during the application stage too so it might be like that.

let us know what they tell you. I hope that it is good news.  ;D

Since it is a law then why dosnt the fed shutdown groups like wheregeorge for defacing money?
I guess I can see why they wouldnt use taxpayer money to have cops shutdown all penny pressing machines, but you'd think that they would at least enfoce the bills and ask the locals to stop using the machine and fine the companies that make the machines untill they stop doing so. Then again for the pennies(since it costs more to make a penny than its worth anyways) the govt could probally turn a modest profit just taxing owners of penny smashing machines at 5 or 10 cents per penny smashed since the shops turnaround and sell them as souveniers at a dollar a pop anyways.

I am suprised the websites dont at least get shutdown by the FCC for promoting criminal acts against US curency.
