Good grief, do you ever get tired of repeating the same rhetoric? This ridiculous line about protecting millionaires and billionaires - they already pay the overwhelming majority of taxes in this country. At what point will it be enough? I have never heard a single person state that once they pay XX% then it will be enough. Because you will never be satisfied. Stop with the envy and get to work so maybe you can pay a lot of taxes one day too.

Exactly. So simple. Wish everyone could understand that, or at least accept it even if they don't agree with using natural resources.

Then get involved. It's lazy to just throw your hands in the air.

Scash rebutted your first point. Why don't you talk to an actual soldier who will rebut your next points. My husband was in Iraq and saw plenty of WMDs but the media doesn't want to write about that. Just because it isn't a nuclear bomb doesn't mean it isn't a WMD. And actually in Iraq, our soldiers were welcomed as liberators. The enemy was and is Al Queda. The Iraqi citizens actually appreciated everything we did. Our soldiers busted their tails and performed more humanitarian tasks then fighting. Just because you say something is a lie and use all caps doesn't make it so.

Give in and it will never be enough. When a group can say that the taxpayers who pay the vast majority of taxes are not paying their fair share, then even if the top 5% was paying all the taxes, it would still never be enough for them.
Wow, glad your life turned out nicely all wrapped in a bow. You might be surprised to learn that many fertility doctors will not implant more than one or two embryos as a precaution for both the mother's and baby's health. It does make the chances of pregnancy in one cycle less likely but avoids the possibility of more than twins unless the embryo splits naturally. I went through infertility treatments and think this is a great option, as most people who struggle to have a baby don't want to then kill one. It's a pretty big stretch to go from a poor medical practice of implanting too many embryos to pad the doctor's success rate to a condemnation of all women who make choices different than yours.

Strangulation by Union

When the unions would rather shuffle low-performing teachers to low-income districts where the parents are unlikely to complain, rather than hiring new enthusiastic teachers to help students whose parents are less involved, then they have completely sold out the interests of the children to the interests of the adults. Shocker: just because you say the interests of the children are first doesn't make it true. Just because you claim to fight for an equal education for all children and to champion the needs of low income communities doesn't make it true. Until the needs of these kids trump any needs of adults, we will never make progress in giving these kids the opportunities they deserve.
It's not naive, it's called knowing your rights. And not falling in line with everything that the administration or teachers want to do. Someone has to push back when the lines are overstepped.
This is one of the more ridiculous comments that I have been seeing a lot. I am a proud believer of individual rights and a spouse of an active duty soldier. Our kids go to public schools. We also talk about everything they learn and let our voices be heard when necessary. They are learning about the real world now. When they get out of school, they won't be surrounded only with people who think the same way. And it is incredibly arrogant to assume that everyone who believes in limited government can afford private schools or has the capability to home school. Better to work with your schools to provide a fair education and opportunities for all children.

Why Liberals Hate Teachers

There does not appear to be a shortage of candidates studying to be teachers; therefore, one must presume that the career is not as bad as the complaints make it appear to be. If so, why not find another career path and leave some openings for new graduates?

Mark, first of all most of us are paying into social security for a paltry return that we will probably never see. And if you are married, you will collect benefits from your spouse from a system you never paid into. Congrats on your education but research shows that it doesn't improve your effectiveness as a teacher and other jobs don't pay more based on the education level or additional "units" or clock hours. Finally, aren't students held accountable through grades? I completely agree with you on parents-no reason not to require some effort from them. However, what do you do when they don't comply, throw the student out of school? That punishes them even more for their bad luck in the lottery of life.
