Re: Educational privilege.

Income inequality

All this talk about wages not rising without a mention of the history of labor unions. Does anyone remember the UAW sit down strike, the bloody battles in Detroit and San Francisco. It's as if the history of the union [more]

Re: It's been going on for a long time in France

They do try hard to recast these terrible events. The violence and rhetoric in Europe towards Jews has ratcheted up, and appears to be getting worse. While Democrats in America say that the rage is against the Israeli government, not Jews, it's [more]

Re: PA Left: Heart Texans killing Texans

It's a good thing the left rescued this thread, I was worried that they'd fall into the trap of being shown as violent hate mongers, or worse, showcase their racist indifference to the inner-city violence. Nice doppel affect as [more]

Re: Romney not running

It is true what Romney said, the 47% largely would not vote for him. The left always thinks truths like that are mean and nasty. But a real problem with this wealth disparity issue on the left, is that they make it worse. Granted, you have people [more]

At least Stewart can see the fallacies in the envirogroupies arguments. As usual, they picked the first cause they could pronounce. The only reason anyone's even discussing exported Canadian oil or refined products is because all of their [more]

Re: The Angry President

Indeed. I've met a number of Israeli tourists visiting Charleston, and every one of them was opposed to Netanyahu. Most of them have relatives in the US and are glad to see that Obama/many Americans see things as they [more]

Re: The Angry President

What needs to be done is simple. Netanyahu needs to be ousted. Then, Israel can begin dismantling settlements, and start negotiations to allow for a Palestinian state, with a capital in Jerusalem. It's not that big a deal. In addition, Palestinians [more]

Re: Educational privilege.

Sure, by all means, just keep jacking up the pay scale and see what happens.

I would be rude not to suggest that you first rid yourself of the NEA and all unions. Otherwise, you'll be spending far more to end up with the very same [more]

Re: Educational privilege.

3) The US spends as much on defense as the next 17 nations combined. We don't have money for teachers bus managed to find and extra $3-4 trillion to invade Iraq. Every part of the government could be more efficient but generally you get what you pay [more]

Re: Educational privilege.

I used to think there was only so long that property taxes would keep rising as school budgets got larger, only to see the education remain largely inadequate. Particularly in poorer areas and the good old inner cities. There are many examples of [more]

Re: Governors

Their current roles as governors give people a real chance to see how they dealt with some pretty complicated issues, not just policy statements from a Senator. Hillary has some pretty recent experience in a high role, and I don't think it bodes [more]

Governors

The Dems don't seem to care, but this is the year that I think another governor is in place for the R's. If you look around the country at Republican governors, and what they've had to deal with, there's a compelling story there. Unlike their [more]

LOL.

My son is a genuine natural lefty. Best penmanship in the family. Great at baseball, golf, whatever. Somewhere around grade 3-4, I noticed he was writing (poorly), with his right hand. Eating as well. I went to discuss this with his [more]

Re: Let's salute Cook's genius for once

I understand where Steven's coming from, and I think where Cook was coming from. He should have probably just said "I'm proud of who I am". Even as successful as Cook is, it was a risk. But as I remember, it was a somewhat guarded piece of [more]
