No. Everything is black and white. The world is simple. It's all easy. Complexity is a myth. That's why I know and understand everything with having no relevant education to the discussion. Not even a Google Search.
To a very short person, someone who is 5'4" appears quite tall.
I don't know where you live, but I was BEGGED to teach science. I had a Bachelor's in Physics and NYS offered to pay the way for me to get my MAT within 1 year. (It was a rough year.) I ended up declining the offer, but this nonsense about a PhD is not true.
Sarah: I'm definitely not a Republican (I almost always find both sides wrong) But Demosthenes is right about one thing..... If you have a pulse you can get certified and teach. It requires more than that to teach WELL, but fortunately for those people they don't have to. I started my MAT back in college and I was disgusted at just how dense my classmates were. These people didn't know their head from their rears in their own disciplines. And you want to know where the rest of us who had straight-A's throughout school, and rocked the SAT's and GRE's? I can tell you this much, we're not in a job that pays $60k capped. In fact, I got a job $60k starting right out of college. Because that's where the top goes.
Paying her retirement + 2 additional teachers is less than paying for just her? I'm hoping she's not a math teacher...
Except the very affluent areas (NoVA) are highly Democrat. Louden and Fairfax county aren't exactly conservative havens. Virginia also benefits from the east side of DC being the worst, and Arlington/Louden/Alexandria's proximity to the mall. And these "Technology Professionals" are mostly younger, more left-leaning anyway. You really have 2 completely different states. If you draw a line west from Fredericksburg, you'll have one very Democrat state with high cost of living and high concentration of technology professionals, and one very conservative state with a medium cost of living and a lot of corporate-level professionals (specifically in Richmond.)
@JRG3 You seemed to have no problem with that between 2000-2008. So why suddenly care now? Ohhhh a Democrat is in the White house. So you're okay with Democrats paying taxes so a Republican can spend it on frivolous things. But you're not okay with Republicans paying taxes so a Democrat can spend it on frivolous things. Unless you're going to pull one of those Hannity-Style "I was against it back then" hoping that nobody actually looks back to see whether or not you really were against it back then. (I'd wager you called people UnAmerican for suggesting it, actually)
If it's only on purchases, that won't work. Especially at the corporate level. All purchases would be made outside of the country. It also incentivises NOT spending money- which is bad for the economy. Taxing income and removing sales tax is a much better idea, though still very flawed.
