Romney is a HUGE RINO, but far better than the current occupant of the White House. One word: RomneyCare.
They simply don't have the stones to do what is right. Boehner should have passed what the GOP wanted, pointed out that Obama said he would not negotiate, then adjourned the House. Let the Senate and Prez be the ones who refuse to take the deal.

Agreed.
Amen. Students will evacuate poor schools and move to great schools. Or, maybe, the poor schools will improve.
I would prefer the local level. The state-wide requirements in MS were obviously designed by a committee. The math standards are crazy: just a hodgepodge of individual "requirements" with no solid core. Teachers spend the whole year teaching to the ridiculous test -- hopping from unrelated topic to unrelated topic. It's a joke, but it's devastating to kids' understanding.
It's bad, with fluff language that can be interpreted many ways, AND it contains racial/ethnic/income sliding scales. It has been reported that poor minority students are graded on a different level than upper-income white kids. The textbooks based upon it are a horrible mess, particularly the math books. Jettison the whole thing, and go back to local control of schools
Uh, the police officer was not on duty, not in uniform, and thus had no authority to issue orders to anyone. He was a security guard, not a police officer. Color of authority is not the same thing as actual authority.

Uh, thanks to Bill Clinton, all military bases ARE gun-free zones. It's one of the first things he did as President. Our military personnel are now unarmed targets for the deranged, as are our children, moviegoers, and anyone else who frequents a gun-free zone.

Uh, this problem as been growing since Woodrow Wilson, accelerated under FDR, grew more and more through Nixon, who accelerated it even more. Bush created DHS and started the radical NSA spying on regular Americans. Obama has has expanded the war on American citizens beyond any practical limit. The federal courts have put their stamp of approval on everything, Congress loves power too, so there really is no check to executive power. None.

Watch out, though. There is NO provision in the Constitution for limiting the scope of the convention to just a few items. It is entirely possible for the Statists and their big corporation buddies to hijack the process and introduce all kinds of mischief. Amending the Constitution in this way has perils of its own.
