I suppose you think you are a realist, farland. As to this date, I doubt if anyone has seen anything that you printed that would lead us to believe that. From what you have posted you have no idea what the middle class and the lower income earners go through every day. I will concede that some of them have made their own bed, but others were put in that situation by people like Romney that closed Sensata and ship the jobs to China.
LOLstone: You think Walker has experience to run the military. He has never had a job that he didn't get paid by the taxpayers. Oh, I forgot, he worked for the Red Cross answering the telephone. Walker has never had a real job in his life. Every place he has been there has been corruption.
Neither do you have any military background, bachus1000000000
What would a draft dodger like you, northvisitor6 know about the military?
drstone: You, of course, wouldn't know it, but, Eisenhower froze veterans pay raises twice when I was in the military. So if Obama cuts pay raises, this wouldn't be the first time it has ever happened.
but Obama does have a lot more education than you do, bachus100000000. Plus he had the experience of working with poor people trying to lift them up into a more stable economic situation.
You are not up to speed this morning, stone. From what I have seen and heard it is the Republicans that are forever lamenting about the status of Social Security. It is well known that the Republicans fought against the implementation of Social Security back in the 30's. I might add the it was GWB that added Part D to Medicare which was never funded.
You never seem to get anything right, stone. All gun owners are not judged by a few lunatics. One thing that needs to be done, which you idiot cons never seem to recognize is that too many guns are being sold without any background checks at gun shows and from the trunk of someone's vehicle. Maybe then, just maybe some of the lunatics that are now buying guns won't be eligible to purchase a gun.
LOL: It was a Republican administration that recognized relations with Red China, and Vietnam. As a historian you should have known that.
For your info farland, idccnokia is one of your wingnut brothers. LOL
crown: Having taught in a technical college, I can tell you that they can absorb many more students.
In some States, particularly in the South the two year Colleges are called community colleges. In Wisconsin they are called Technical Colleges. Technical Colleges train students in Vocational areas. The students get training for their chosen vocation. Not all students make the grade and fail just like happens in Four Year Colleges.
Why should anyone pay more than what the law says? Why do those making millions pay a lower effective tax rate than many of the middle class? I will answer for you, last2cents because you probably wouldn't know, it is because that is the way the tax laws are written which benefit the high income earners.
I guess paying the top administrators in a corporation multi-millions is not inflationary? Who do you think pays for those salaries? Answer that question, joefox.
farland: You are really a dupe. You either don't know or chose to ignore the Iran-Contra deal where arms were traded for hostages. You love traitors apparently.
Your No. 5 is completely erroneous. Teachers today by and large do a better job of teaching than was done back in the 40's and 50's. One difference today is too many parents take little or no interest in how their children are doing in school Another problem teachers have today is that many of the students come from homes that have her kids, his kids and our kids. It is difficult to teach kids when they miss a lot of school and when parents don't motivate their children to do their best.
jeanstalling: I will give you an example of Government help: Expressly the G.I. Bill Thousands have gone on to college because of the G.I. Bill. Those graduates, through the increased earnings have repaid the the monies they received back to the Government many times over. Of course you wouldn't know that because you were never in the situation that you couldn't go to college if you didn't have the funds.
Why are Cons on this board so lazy? They never seem to do any work for gain or do any volunteer work.
