I guess liberals don't mind second-hand smoke in this case.
We desperately need vouchers. It is imperative that we escape the public education system.
Can you image that the least academically prepared and the lowest achievers would hold sway over our economic ethos.
Why do we need 100,000 more teachers? Nearly every state has added andn added. Still no results.

You are so correct. Obama and his Democrat friends would like to raise services for some by reducing them for others. I pay double for my Medicare and now my supplemental insurance premium is going up significantly. This is wrong. Those of us who saved and planned are paying for a lot of people who didn't do much of anything.

The perfect should not be the enemy of the good. We have always had some form of public welfare - governmental or private. People in true need would be given treatment. A nationwide market with a variety of policies coupled with enforcement of personal responsibility (denial of services to recidivists) would go a long way to reforming the system. The government continues to exacerbate the problem.

I know, I know. I am flabbergasted that the networks, pundits and newspapers repeat this "statistic" over and over again. Clearly, the numbers reflect exactly what you say: "I love my guy, it's all those others that are the problem."

What you say is absolutely true. It is mind-boggling that this is not understood by people and general the legislature in particular. It is gross pandering by politicians and greed by people who support it.

The same thing happened to me in a freshman history class many, many years ago. This mental pollution by universities has been going on for a long, long time. It has weakened us markedly.
