Schools are being prevailed on to do better. If the graduation rate is poor--that is a mark against the school...yet students know if they do not get an education, they are not going to starve...and taxpayers (although they just think of it as the gubmint) will take care of them with a house, food, cash, etc. If teachers do poorly--the will receive poor evaluations and theoretically lose their jobs. What is doing poorly? Not having appropriate data to prove their teaching strategies are working. Ok....now, pray tell, why can't we hold government programs to the same standard? If the data shows it isn't working--GONE. I think the fact we are still "fighting" a war on poverty--and nothing is getting better (in fact things are getting worse) proves we are in a quagmire, and the war needs to be called a loss, and something new must take its place. Earning one's keep and supporting one's children should be first and foremost required.
Have you done any research, Lois? Maybe there is a reason he hasn't been waterboarded. Do you call Obama a liar for not bringing peace in the Middle East? How is the rest of the world loving us working out for us? What about stopping that rise of the oceans? What about his non-transparent administration? Before you point your finger--keep in mind that your bunch is filled with people who wouldn't know the truth if it walked up and introduced itself.
You use the word intellectual very loosely, right?
Seriously? Russell Brand is not very smart. All we need for peace to exist in the world is for everybody to accept that terrorists are going to be terrorists and not resist. There is a huge difference, Russ, between Peace and Appeasement, and the civilized world can tell you that Appeasement does not lead to peace. I think the Jews can tell you most of all. I have a feeling Russ is an Anti-Semite who believes if the Jews would just die out, the world would be some kind of utopia. Gee, Brand, you do not know history very well, do ya?
Easy...it is illegal to press it when a Hispanic looking person can't produce an ID. My son (he looks a little Hispanic even though he is not) asked a bank employee that when she demanded an photo ID (he should have shrieked racism as those who oppose voter ID want to do) what would you do if I could not produce one? She hemmed and hawed and then said--well you would have to go through some more paperwork...WHAT?
I am unsure why American Jews vote Democrat since the libs (mostly Dems) are pro-Palestinian...I shake my head at this.
Jimmy Carter...just saying...
The sad thing is...it seems like blacks enjoy the badge of victimhood. Those who break out are treated with contempt and hatred. What is wrong with that picture?
Imagine--Bush had a press that constantly berated him while Obama has one that refuses to even report honestly about what is going on in an effort to protect their messiah. If the press treated Obama like they did Bush, his approval numbers would be in the single digits..if that!!!! This is heartening though..it appears the American people have awakened from their slumber......
Because Obama and other liberals want to weaken the US, they have a real problem when someone acts decisively and with strength. They know Israel is simply highlighting our current weakness and dithering.
