Over the last hundred years or so, it seems to me that we, as a society, have been asking the wrong question. The question we kept asking was: Why can’t the government do something about (fill in the blank?) Of course our politicians, wanting to stay in office, accommodated our foolishness. The question we should have asked was: Why should the government do something that we should be doing for ourselves?
I suspect that its time to consider the possibility of term limits for the "Supremes."
A government tinkering with a free economy is a little like adding positive feedback to a piece of machinery. Those of you who understand the difference in effect of positive and negative feedback will understand that this is not a good thing and should be handled much in the same way as handling a stinging insect. That is--- very carefully.
Actually, we only need 2/3rds of the states to call a convention 3/4 to pass the Amendments.
After the first few sentences I knew (or at least I hoped I knew--with this bunch you never can tell) that this had to be a spoof. Nobody could be that stupid--then again, with this administration, you never can tell. LOL
From what I have seen, ethical journalist are becoming an endangered species.

It's kind of hard to expect students to read to grade level when their High School textbooks are written at between the sixth and seventh grade level. History has been so watered down as to be useless. In many schools, grammar is no longer taught and why teach spelling when you have a "spell checker." Makes you wonder what we're paying for; doesn't it.
Concerning #3: As a retired teacher I have found that there is only one thing worse then "poor self-esteem" and that is FALSE self-esteem.
For many of students I taught (in an inner city school) the idea that these students needed anything other then their own intellect, talent and drive to succeed is demeaning.

Very good sir. A chuckle is a priceless thing in precarious times.
The present "solution" given for the immigration problem is a little like trying to mop up the water before you fix the leak. Neither makes sense,
