Oops, hit the wrong spot on my phone and subjected myself to another demonstration of Bennett's intellectual absence.
Bennett is so Bennett.
Same old tired topics. Same lack of creativity.
Clay Bennett's warm, moist and squishy heart leaves him in a poor position to be making any judgements about anyone else. Warm, moist and squishy sounds like the prize one would find in the toilet.
I was wondering... Why is this such a hot issue for Bennett?
A) Bennett is gay himself?
B) Bennett has lots of gay friends?
c) Bennett is very empathetic?
Maybe the Bennett could weigh in on this one himself.
What's that about living in a glass house? Bennett cracks me up.
Wow, Bennett is one clueless troll!
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.
"He also maintains the state should restrict the right to vote based upon a person's "incompetency." That is the basis of the old Jim Crow laws."
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?
