Romney Was Right

I hope that American voters will wake up that substance and experince matters, not just smooth-talking, camera-friendly, charismatic "cool." Some of us learned that in high school popularity elections, but clearly many are still there in their thinking skills. Many of the 18-28 year-olds are starting to get it now. Now we are a year late and trillions short.

Ryan Saves GOP From Itself

There is so much more right with this deal than is wrong so the Senate Republicans need to find a voice to accept it and pass it. I agree that the Republican Senators against this need a reality and hypocrisy check. The reality is the deal has to be something that will pass the Senate! This should pass unless Reid figures out that this helps the Republicans. The hypocrisy is that the senators are usually the ones who say there should be more compromise than the hardline of the House. What we see is some egos and all these Republicans - House and Senate, need the Reagan Rule. "Take your differences behind closed doors and come out together in the news." Wake up! 2014 senate wins are what matter now!

A Challenge to Our Beliefs

I have been teaching for 34 years. In my experience it doesn't matter what the income and or race and or family situation are for a student. What matters is if a person who is significant to that student values a good education and expects the student to do their very best to get a good education. That is why private schools, public schools, home schools, and charter schools work. The kids had someone care about their education enough to stress the importance and expect the student to do well. When that happens the student will get a good education. We have to stop pointed at teachers and all adults have to influence kids to do their best and to value an education. It is their education and those who want one, will get one. It is free for the taking. As long they believe it doesn't matter, they won't.
The Republicans need to point this out over and over and over and over that the DEMOCRATS in the Senate need to act. Last time I checked there were more senators than one, Reid. They all need to go on the record by voting on those CRs. If the House Republicans would get out and all tell the same story about ALL the resolutions to fund the government thay have passed that the DEMS in the Senate haven't even voted on. The public needs to hear a story besides the lies Obama is saying from his bully pulpit, but the Republicans have to be saying it clearly and often. The DEMS in the Senate have to be held accountable in the next election. Without a vote, Reid is protecting them and his position and nothing will change. The DEMS in the Senate need to be the target, not Obama.
She shouldn't have said Ben Ghazi, the guy." It would be better if she let them tell her "some guy." The follow up question should have been "Who did you vote for in the last election?"

Powerful Evidence for School Choice

tporter Wrote: Apr 23, 2013 3:46 PM
So many think vouchers are the answers to education. Vouchers work where they are used because those PARENTS CARE and are involved in their kids' education. That is also why private schools work and charter schools work and public schools work. When PARENTS CARE and are involved, kids learn. Until society values hard work and a good education and realize that the students and parents have to do their part, education will continue to decline. Blaming schools and teachers lets parents and kids off the hook. Where is their accountability?

Why is Obama Trying to Deport This Family?

We keep undocumented, uneducated, unskilled democrats, but deport conservative, educated, Christians. The one campaign promise Obama is keeping is to transform America.

Idiocies in the Gun Control Debate

Where are the mental health bills? These stupid legislators are all going after guns, but it was crazy people that did the damage. Not one of these gun bills will change if a crazy person gets the help they need before they kill people. Not one of the gun bills will stop bad people get guns. If gun control prevented crime, explain Chicago. Aurora, Fort Hood, Virginia Tech, and Sandy Hook are all dreadful situations because they had mentally ill people. Those folks need help. Gun laws aren't going to change that. This whole debate is about the wrong thing. Wake-up legislators!

Charge Pot Use Off to Obamacare and You

The government should make the risk known, but people need to be responsible for the risks they take. All the excuses for people to be responsible have to stop. We have to stop bailing out stupid. Otherwise, when will it all stop? I am sick of the nanny state. Personal responsibility has to return!

I am just sick of providing for other people to do things that are just wrong! If they do it, so be it, but I don't want to pay for it. If someone wants to smoke marijuana, they pay for it now and when they have lung problems. If someone wants to have sex they pay for their birth control. If someone has sex without birth control they pay for their own abortion and mental issues afterward. If someone wants to be fat and obese, they pay for the consequences. If someone is a bad driver, they pay more. So it should be if they engage in negative behavior. Inform them of consequences and then let them deal with the choices they make. If someone lives by the ocean and a hurricane or flood hits, they pay for it because they made that choice

What I Stand For

Thank you for standing for something important. Too many are afraid to do so. It sure would be nice if Marriage were a religious covenant and all other civil union contracts. If a couple believes in God and therefore wants Him as part of their relationship, they get married. Otherwise engage in a civil union contract. Then the civil contracts can specify death wishes and property decisions and all the other "rights" that seem to be desired. Sadly too many don't want to follow the teachings of God in the Bible, just pick and choose what fits them instead of becoming what God wants them to be. Thank you for believing God.
