Fairly typical of the kind of spinlessness and lack of thinking I have come to expect from our congressional 'representatives'. Seems more and more like the only people they are there to represent are themselves. If it does not do more to fill their pockets, they do not want to hear about it.
This, unfortunately, has far too much truth to it these days and it is only getting worse. Kids are graduating with degrees that do little to nothing that will help them make a living, but leaves them with massive student loans and qualified only for a job flipping hamburgers.

Common Core: Republican Minefield?

The problem with what is called the common core has more to do with what is being tested than anything else. When the test is written to reflect the progressive agenda than what it taught must reflect the progressive agenda or the kids will not be able to pass the test. A lot of the resistance against common core will disappear if the tests are written to be non-biased and the revisionist claims are removed.
Many of us in Washington 'woke up' a long time ago. The problem is that there are just SO MANY on the left side of the state who refuse to do so.
I don't know but something about the idea of rats and sinking ships comes to mind.
Lets hope that the people of our own nation start to see the damage that the "Progressive" agenda has been doing and also reverse course.
Why does it not surprise me that such 'bastions of liberal learning' as these would ban this?
Did you not know that medicare was one of the programs that is taking a big hit under Obamacare? People currently on Obamacare should be fighting this Obamanation of healthcare if they want to continue receiving health care at all. Many doctors are already declining to accept more medicare patients because the reduced payment schedules do not even cover their costs. Add to that the number of doctors who have medicare patients who have decided to quit and you have a major problem being experienced by the elderly who rely on social security and medicare.
If it were not for his attempted EXTORTION of the House every time something comes up there would be no 'negotiation' at all.
This is a perfect example of Obama's disdain for the American citizens. The monuments around DC are all open air and have NO reason to be shutdown or barricaded. At most they might close up any access to the inside of the monuments. But the morons in the White-house will purposely go to extremes to find ways to cause the most possible inconvenience and irritate to the citizens so he can attempt to shift the blame for his failure as president off to someone else. Recall that Obama is the one that said NO to any negotiation and it was the Democrat controlled Senate that refused to pass a funding measure (twice) that would have avoided all of this just because they know that they can not get the abomination called Obama(don't)care or the (un)Affordable Care Act through on a straight up vote now that people are starting to find out just how big a disaster it really is.
