What's that about living in a glass house? Bennett cracks me up.

Common Core has a good origin in that it was based on a State initiative that TN was involved in. When the federal government co-opted it they called it a "State" plan, and to a certain extent that was true.

Anyone with a brain in their head knows where this will take us. Up until now, federal involvement in education has had an inversely proportional result as far as literacy and quality of education. NO GOOD can come from centralised control of standards. The standards will drive the curriculum and reform of education will be stalled with disastrous consequences. We need constructive change to education. Government, especially the federal government, is no good at this. They will take what started out as a promising State initiative and turn it into an impediment to improvements in education. Like you were warned about ObamaCare, you have been warned (again) about Common Core.

Obamacare was designed to fail. But, of course, the democrats will blame Republicans, Insurance Companies, Doctors and Bush and declare that the only answer is single payer, but that was their end game all along.

Of course it should. Letting people that are taking from society vote ultimately and always results in the collapse of a democracy or representative form of government. Our founding fathers understood this. The universal "right" to vote was given to the under informed joe and jane on the street to gain an advantage in upcoming elections, not because it was good for the republic.

For the most part, you are right moon4kat. All of the wealth distribution is an inappropriate role for government. Their false philanthropy is creating poverty, not solving it. We have more people on welfare now than with full time jobs.

Just curious, what are the subsidies to oil companies you seem to be referring to?

I guess when you don't have a point you resort to trying to discredit those with an opposing viewpoint. But when has Bennett ever had a point?

Great article Robin. It is important for TN lawmakers to understand that when they submit to federal government programs to obtain federal money they are participating in the process of "legal" plunder. They are just using federal mercenaries to do the stealing part for them.

The states should be fighting for their citizens freedom from federal intrusion into our lives. I have yet to meet that man or woman in the TN legislature that is willing to stand up and fight for less federal influence in TN. Everyone complains but when it comes time to make the tough decisions they whore themselves out for the federal money.

Suicide is continuing the expansion of the scope and spending of the federal government. I had my doubts about Fleischmann but lately he is showing promise. Now if we can get him to start fighting the rights violations of the Patriot Act and NDAA he will have won my full support.
