    Bull-fucking-shit. The saddest thing is that you actually think you are making a valid argument with this ‘appeal to authority’ stunt. Same thing when you reached for FDR a few posts back. But providing dox to show that the founding fathers would have tolerated your 'privatise the public schools' or 'bust the unions' crap – well that aint’t going happen. Dox or STFU.

    And seriously mate, when you make comments like these you justify fully the mockery you have received.

    I think Adhocrat has a valid point, even though I don't agree with his explanation of said point. Our public schools are not doing all that well. You can tell this by the fact that many other countries are doing a lot better than us. And you know, one solution could be to increase home-schooling and private schooling, but most people don't want to pay for school taxes and the expenses of home-schooling/private school.

    I figure that's part of your point, Adhocrat?

    That's were the reality of big government force comes in. Those who use it should pay. Those that don't should not. There should be an option. There isn't an option. Pay or big brother's going to kick in your door with a fucking SWAT team.

    That's what the lefties stand for.

    The Gov't offers the best that people are willing to pay for. If you want better then either
    1) get people to pay more and thereby get more
    2) you don't like shopping at Wal-Mart, pay the extra to go to __________

    that's what the Oligarchs want the system to be.

    if you carefully check many of the dox posted, you'll find that we do more than nearly any other nation on the planet.

    keep in mind that most countries "cut" their students just a pro team does. if at age 12 (for example), you aren't Uni material, then you move to a different track. in U.S. they take the approach that any/all belong on any track that want.

    good idea but way more expensive than "Cut System." I like that people have choice to move into whatever track they want, when they want.

    In the article above;
    "GE has hired a string of lobbyists to ensure it pays as little tax as possible including one law firm made up for former officials from the IRS, the Treasury and almost all the tax committees in Congress.

    Over the last five years records show that the firm has chalked up $26billion profits - but received a net benefit from the IRS to the tune of $4.1billion.

    GE claims its tax strategy is necessary to help it survive in a competitive global environment but critics say the loopholes are little more than ‘corporate welfare’. "

    OK I know I'm suffering from the flu and my brain feels like mush but am I reading this right? They make a shit ton of money, pay no income tax at all AND the taxpayers give them more money because some f'ing loophole says they should be refunded????????

    OK shoot me now because we are not only being screwed but instead of us getting paid for it we pay them for the priviledge of getting f'ucked.

    Please oh please Capitalist tell me on what planet that this is right.

    I do wish to moderate one thing. Yes I guess they do create jobs...for lobbyist, lawyers and ex employees of the government who worked for the IRS, etc. Oh shit wait. That is part of if you don't like a public sector job go get a real job you lazy bums in the private sector. I guess it is better to be the one doing the screwing than the one getting screwed. Never mind. BAck to regular programming.

    I love the asshole in this video says "How many people died in the 2nd world war fighting socialism" Everyone knows except for Nazi revisionist that is not the case. By the way FDR was wrong on this issue and it has been proven to be the case for over 50 years. Can't be right all the time :)

    It is clearly because of the oppressive unions that poor GE needs that money.

    merchantalism ≠ free market
    corporate capitalism = merchantalism, or government approval, a top down approach
    free market = free minds and free markets in voluntary association, a bottom up approach

    Hey, a lot of people DID die in the 2nd World War fighting socialism. Namely, the Nazis fighting on the eastern front.

    "MADISON — The Wisconsin law taking away collective bargaining rights that a court had ordered not to be published by the secretary of state has been published instead by the Legislative Reference Bureau.
    The action was noted on the Legislature's home page Friday. It's not immediately clear whether the publication has the force of law. But if legally published, the law takes effect Saturday.

    A judge last week issued a temporary restraining order blocking Secretary of State Doug La Follette from publishing the law."|head

    Judge voids controversial Wisconsin union law

    MADISON, Wisconsin (Reuters) – A Wisconsin judge on Thursday voided a controversial Republican-backed law restricting the collective bargaining rights of public sector unions in the state.
    Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi, who was appointed by a Republican governor, said Republican state lawmakers who passed the law in March had violated the state's open meetings law in rushing the legislation through amid massive public protests at the state Capitol.
