I think public education should be completely privatized. Get the government out of it, there is no constitutional reason for the DOE, abolish it. If we let the market drive our education system, I guarantee our kids would get a much better education at a much better price. Money's not the problem - the districts who spend the most per child on education are often the worst when it comes to literacy and graduation rates. Get the government out of education.
***This has to be another quick one - I forgot to set my alarm and woke up at 5:50. Geez, I lost about three hours there. I hate that.
Is that perfect, or what?
Rush Limbaugh has a little fun with America’s favorite blow-dried sports sociologist:
Byron York says (paraphrasing), “Look at that, ESPN just goes nuts to get rid of Limbaugh, but Costas over at NBC, perfectly fine.” Like I said yesterday, the reason Costas can do it is because his bosses agree with what he said. It’s no more complicated than that, the old NBC/HBO cabal. They’re interchangeable. They go back and forth, the people that work there, and he said what the bosses there agree with, so it wasn’t any problem.
But I don’t blame Bob Costas. I blame the microphone. I blame the microphone. If that microphone hadn’t been on, nobody would know what Costas said. If you stop and think about it, it’s the microphone’s fault. Costas, he’s up there, he’s in the broadcast booth at halftime.
***Detroit: We voted for you, now bail us out. Is that liberalism in a nutshell, or what?
***Obama "hostile and insulting" to GOP on debt deal. You expected anything different? He's a petulant child, wanting his own way. Why is HE never expected to compromise?
Low-tax crusader and Republican strategist Grover Norquist tells Newsmax that House Speaker John Boehner’s plan to raise $800 billion in new revenue could be a negotiating tactic designed to show “how out of line” President Obama is.
He also says some Republicans have the “fantasy” that Obama has become more moderate on taxes and spending since his re-election.
And he asserts that Republicans can hold hostage the increase in the debt ceiling that Obama needs if he remains “hostile” and “insulting” to Republicans in his negotiations.
