For the last couple of years the racism charge has been a one-trick pony for the vapid left. Don't like tax increases - racist! Don't like supporting lazy people who won't earn their own living - racist? Believe is school choice - racist! Prefer your eggs sunny side up - racist! Brush your teeth up and down instead of side to side - racist! It makes me think of the old adage that it takes one to know one. Or - to liars everyone is dishonest. Me thinks they doth protest too much.
Time to start posting the names and addresses of the papers owners and perhaps, if it is publicly owned, some of the largest shareholders to boot.
Continuing proof of Pavlov's concept of conditioned response. Stick a camera in this guys face and he says something stupid.
America does not have a gun problem, we have a violence problem. I grew up in the sixties and seventies in a town south of Boston MA. All of my friends dad's owned a gun; if not a handgun then a hunting rifle or shotgun. This was before extremely violent movies, TV, or video games. Two things to note here- 1: 97% of my friends had fathers, in their homes and; 2: Despite LOTS of guns, nobody ever settled a score with one. We just didn't think that way. It never occurred to us to bring a gun to school or to use one against someone we had a grievance with. A pervasive atmosphere of violence has changed our national landscape. Only genuine societal change, not the quick and unconstitutional fix of strict gun control laws, will change us back.
If the reports are true this teacher should be fired. Teachers hold an enormous responsibility not the least of which is the power to demean a student which can be crushing. They need to always think before they speak. That's the job. If you don't like the rules, drive a truck or sell tupperware. On top of that, this was not a single poorly worded remark but appears to be a vindictive pattern that ran for several minutes. The school needs to adios that mean spirited woman, she is no educator.
Here's you coat, what's you hurry? ---- Don't let the door hit you on the way out! --- Okay, bu-bye! ---- You're all packed, off you go! That's all the "hurry up and leave" quips I could think of. I'm sure there are more. Good bye Charlie, you were always a blatant RINO. Now at least you're not living the lie anymore. The dems can have you.

Once again, this is exactly the point. Democrats, specifically the President, stayed on message through the election. Soak the evil, greedy rich and give their money to everyone else. Republicans walked away from their core message of fiscal responsibility and it cost them. They never clearly articulated quintessential Conservative values. It cost them the election.
That was an ignorant question asked by an ignorant person who listens to ignorant academics who espouse theories based solely on statistical data and no real life experience. Living it is something else all together. My family lived in New Orleans in 1962. I lived knowing where the fallout shelters were and what were essentially air raid drills in school. I don't know if this MSNBC anchor has children, but if her daughter or son lived their lives always no more that 15 seconds from a shelter, she would never ask such a foolish question.

I agree completely. But it's hard to change the course of a nation on one election, especially a mid-term. The Tea Party was crushed because their own leadership would. Romney was a major disappointment for a lot of fiscal conservatives and I think many stayed home (I did not.). The Republican party must return to it's roots and prove that it can do the job.

You are ignoring facts. The Tea Party delivered the 2012 votes with a clear message. The Republican leadership left the message and lost the election. They listened to the LEFT who depicted the Tea Party as several things it was not. It was about two things: 1: Less government spending; 2: Smaller government. People respond to clarity which was a major part of Obama success. He never left his main point - Tax the rich. That was his winning mantra. Romney was lost in an "I'm not Obama fog". Complexity may oil government (for now), but it doesn't win elections.
