I personally don't feel horribly affected by all of this minimum wage stuff yet considering I don't have a lot to be responsible for but having a higher paid job could help with that so I do see a lot of the downsides as well. I don't know this is just a big issue that needs more information on to be fixed.

Many people bash on the NSA for spying on people and breaking privacy laws. I think it is funny because they don't realize that the FBI, according to this article, spies more intensively on US soil than the NSA does. I didn't know this, but it makes sense since the FBI is an organization for this country while the NSA is around the world. 

Chelsie DeBus's comment, April 25, 2014 7:39 AM
I think that is kind of cool because I didn't know that the NSA was for around the world spying. I knew that the FBI only spied on the United States. I think that the National Security Agency is doing a good thing and spying on everyone. They need to know what is going on around the world and in the United States alone.

Open enrollment runs for six months so there is still plenty of time to compare plans, calculate subsidies and enroll.

 

Billing issues are still not resolved but progress is being made. To eliminate most delays and glitches, utilize experienced brokers (they are free!) and their assocaited. websites.  You'll save hours of time and frustration.

I do not agree with this article that data collection is trying to de-humanize our choices. I do believe that people are trying to studying the trends of our population to see how we work as a whole and how and when we fluctuate. I think that this data it interpreted correctly can be very beneficial to our society. I do believe that corporations are looking at why we fluctuate in our behavior they are not just seeing when, they want a better look at why so they are able to better predicate peoples habit in the future and this can help in many ways. For example the start of winter people will tend to buy coat and warm clothes if stores did not know this then they would run out of these items leaving many people out freezing in a snow storm. So I believe that collecting data is a very good idea and is most certainly not a bad policy.
