They teach the students that everyone is "entitled" to a job with a "living wage", whatever that means. They teach them that employers are out to screw their workers over, every chance they get, unless it's the government doing the employing. They are taught that the "rich" never pay their fair share, and if it weren't for that, everyone in America would have a nice home, a nice car, a great job, etc., etc., etc. And if you do drugs/alcohol, engage in too much partying and open sex, and don't really learn any marketable skills in school, that's not your fault. It's society that is to blame and the government should be providing unlimited programs to help all victims of societal oppression. That's why we are failing.

That's exactly what I did without help from the gubment - no food stamps, no welfare and no educational assistance. The result was someone who took pride in her accomplishments and slowly moved up in the world. I'm old now and don't have much, but I have a daughter who is a success, believes in God and helps others. What more could a mother want?

The Age of Aquarius- long a goal for liberals- will begin in earnest on January 1st, 2013 when more of the planned tax increases on the wealthy created by Obamacare are implemented.

Here’s how it will work:

Finally, the low-down, dirty rich, who are responsible for all the world’s ills, including the short stature, pint-sized intellect and light caliber (pun intended) of Bob Costas, will start paying their fair share.
