dtaylor, how long were you addicted to marijuana? I am sure your absolutism in this area is based on your past experiences?

it is not. the constitution prohibits the u.s. congress from legislating the use of drugs.

I think the legalization ship has sailed in most of America. however, I do agree that a gop candidate should mirror his opponent in this area. there is no need to separate oneself from the democrat in this policy area. if you democrat opponent opposes legalization, do the same. if your democrat opponent supports legalization, do the same. legalization of marijuana is not the wall upon which the gop should take its stand.
if you think women are unjustly exploited in the usa, think about those poor females in muslim dominated societies.
since the beginning of time, the fairer sex has always been the easier of the two to exploit.
nope, just the income tax.

the very concept of equality, other than "equality under the law", is an imaginary and eternally unachievable goal. just like the "war on drugs" and the "war on poverty", the "war on inequality" is solely an attempt to control you and me. there is no possible way for the government to eliminate drug use, poverty or inequality. to persistently pursue unachievable objectives is a serious mental illness. it is both sad and alarming that so many of the progressives and democrats in America are suffering from this mental illness, steadfastly pursuing the unattainable, the impossible. how ignorant or stupid or greedy must a person be to continually support placing the mentally ill in positions of power?

an effective manner to combat illegal aliens presence in America would be to fine those who pay them wages. it is a simple solution. it is an effective solution. who would hire an illegal alien if each one they hired cost them a $100,000 fine?
imagine how the progressives and democrats really think. they force children to attend institutions that attempt to make the children's beliefs offensive to the children themselves; and these schools see no problem with forcing the administrators' beliefs upon the children. is that not the whole point about freeing America's children from the tyranny of the government run schools? a completely competitive elementary and secondary schools system would eliminate this government violation of the freedoms of speech and religion. the progressives are so Orwellian and probably equally as ignorant since, I suspect, only a few progressives know the contradictions in their philosophies and policies, most are just too ignorant or stupid to see inherent contradictions when the contradictions slap them directly in the face. government schools teach beliefs. government schools do not restrict their educational efforts purely to the facts. if you do not realize this, you are part of the problem America faces in attempting to create and sustain a prosperous and stable society.
is the school advocating its beliefs when it teaches concepts about equality and government? does the school get an exemption on your prohibition about confined students being subjected to beliefs and speech they find offensive? do you have one set of rules for the people in charge of the schools and another set for the people the government confines in these schools? it seems you need to do a lot more thinking about this issue before you go forcing your beliefs on to this forum? :)
is it any wonder America's educational system is in free fall when its leaders hire people like this superintendent to run their schools?
