Carl, I often agree with your posts but not this one. The school systems job is to prepare ourRead More children for the future. Whether that be a job or higher education. It is unfortunate that some children has test anxiety but they need to learn how to deal with it. If after completing high school they have a job at McDonald's are you going to tell McDonald's that they cannot work the lunch or dinner rush because it's to stressful on them? If they should get into a good collage are you going to tell there professors that they gets a pass on there senior thesis because they gets stressed from tests? One last thought on Education V Work will there resume state that they will not have to worry about deadlines, meetings or reports because there to stressful and demanding? What is the problem with students studying 110 hours per year for testing? People are tested everyday at work, in fact work could be considered a test of knowledge and how to use that knowledge all day everyday.

Pressure should not be placed on students because the adults at the school require that the childrenRead More need better test scores. These tests used to be about measuring a student's progress so that their education could be customized. We have moved past that point and it needs to be returned. The 110 hours are wasted when the learning process is moved from processing information to how to do well on a test.

Weddings aren't cheap. What can a to-be-married couple do with that $20K? They can use it for a downRead More payment on a house. Kick start their retirement savings. Start saving for their kids' college educations. Buy cars. Repair the house. Boost their Emergency Fund. OR, They can have a four hour party.
Lisbeth Allen July 18, 2014 at 11:25 am
I would be more understanding of such a huge outlay of money if people actually stayed married, butRead More alas, people don't anymore. It really is just a four hour party. Look at all the time and resources squandered.

Joyce July 23, 2014 at 03:17 pm
Donald Lee asked: 'Of all the things to say, why does Joyce choose this as the most important one toRead More make?' ------------- That, Donnie, would be because YOU appear to take Netanyahu's statement at face value, so I felt it necessary to point out that the situation is a lot more complicated than you make it appear. I won't be posted a lot right now, I worked more than 16 straight hours overnight and I've slept about half an hour in the past 36 hours, so I need to get some rest.

Why not argue or promote specifics? Because then he would have to take a position on the record.Read More You know better, Lib. Donald is a practicing politician, nothing more and nothing less. I hope he is not running in your district and I'm grateful he's not running in mine. Being vague and filling in the blanks with platitudes and sanctimony will be enough to snow those voters who really only care about the letter following a candidate's name. Too bad some don't realize that the (R) and the (L) are not necessarily interchangeable...but then again, I assume that's what he is counting on.

When debating domestic policy it's possible to be aware of most of the moving parts and how theyRead More affect a given strategy. The ACA was widely panned while it was being written because most of the numbers were available and the numbers didn't add up. .Foreign policy is different. The president and his support staff in theory have access to information that simply isn't available to the rest of us. The president gets a lot of leeway because we are forced to trust that he has better sources than we do, and therefore, while some of his policies may make little sense to the public, there may be valid reasons for those policies. .Donald's example of claiming that a policy was necesary due to a "humanitarian crisis" doesn't inspire any confidence that the president knows more that he can't divulge, rather that he may have made the decision because there's a benefit in it for him or his party. .A great example is the situation in Afghanistan. I've always been against our involvement there, and I'm ecstatic that we're trying to get disentangled from that particular slice of hell, but I've not been able to find one credible source who agrees that it was a good idea to tell the world when we were getting out. Politically it was a nice move, on the face of it not so great for our troops or allies. .There are simply too many areas where the man that we are forced to trust to know better than the rest of us simply appears to be floundering.
Liberaltarian July 22, 2014 at 10:38 pm
It's a dilemma...we generally admire bold leaders who promise action and results. Obama isRead More certainly getting more cautious in promising either of those things. Perhaps he is floundering. In the current hot spots, the potential downside to any action is so much greater than the potential upside. I think he just doesn't want to make any big mistakes - and maybe that's causing him to make more little ones. I don't sense that Obama is trying to score political points with his current foreign policy. He just doesn't know any good answers.

I’m sure Donald is talking about “great damage” like 1) the number of uninsuredRead More Minnesotans falling by nearly 41 percent since September, largely due to the ACA, according to University of Minnesota researchers. Or 2) about 180,000 Minnesotans gaining health insurance as a result of the law, mainly through enrollments in government-sponsored coverage such as Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare. Or 3) the number of people in employer-sponsored plans declining by only about 6,000, or two tenths of 1 percent, meaning employers didn't dump their health plans and force workers to buy their own. Or 4) coverage increasing in the private health insurance market with the number of people buying their own plan up about 12 percent. I mean, Donald is all about policy, fact and logic, not hyperbole. That’s why he had that fake gravestone at the Capitol to mark the death of traditional marriage when the Freedom to Marry law passed.

You are suckers for numbers out of the very people who have a vested interest in making the numbersRead More looking real good! My weekly favorite is in "deportations" the recent rolling in of the numbers to include ATEP numbers. That's a laugh since 85% of those rejected try multiple times as their coyote contracts often guarantee entry or the next time is free. It's amazes me the confidence you guys have in your politicians!

Donald asks: 'Who is to judge what is "false"?' ------------ Nice cop out, Donnie; whenRead More someone makes a claim that is completely contrary to all the evidence we can safely deem that claim false. See, for example, "Roy's" statement regarding deportations under Obama.

Donald, you do realize that 3! count them 3! supreme court justices were recess appointments. AndRead More for the party of Bush The Unitary Executive to claim Obama is overreaching his authority is laugable on its face. As this author points out, the nature of executive orders matters too. so it is not just the number of orders we should consider but the scope of them. The fact is that this is nothing more than red meat for the conservative base and a way to distract from the fact that the House has been doing everything but its job for a very long time, since 2009 in fact. It is subterfuge as Pelosi says, and Obama is right to laugh off Boehner's threat as the mainsteam media has done as well. The sad fact which conservatives fail to grasp is that your days are numbered and while you may have a majority in the USSC and you may have gerrymandered a majority in the House (although with the fracture between the GOP establishment and the Tea Party, it is hard to see the House GOP as a majority caucus in any case -- Boehner can't even get his own legislation passed by his own caucus). Here is some analysis -- you will not like the snark as much as i do, but the points made are still valid. http://www.politicususa.com/2014/06/28/boehners-frivilous-law-suit-shiny-object-intellectually-challenged-base.html And Don, i am still waiting for your opinion of the Unitary Executive theory, particularlly now since you are an announced candidate.

10 men enter your house. 9 invited guests by the front door, and one unwelcome guest breaks down theRead More back door to enter. The man coming in the back way does not get much sympathy if he points to the other 9 and says it's not fair. - that the other 9 are OK, so his entrance should be OK, too.

The President claims that the Republican Party is stopping him and the Democrats from passing lawsRead More and enacting the legislation that he/they want. What the President keep failing to mention is that there are more duly elected Republican in the congress then duly elected Democrats. Could it be that the congress is doing what the majority of constituents want and the President and the Democrats are trying to do what they want regardless of the will of the people?
