Government is incompetent to regulate itself, much less anything else. Aren't you paying attention? We actually managed to overpopulate the world with no Obamacare. Imagine that!7 hours ago
Geez Truth, were you actually sober when you wrote that? 7 hours ago
Truth, I love your use of logic, it is so twisted and, frankly ignorant that it is a satire in and of itself. Cover-ups and falling on your sword, as MS Clinton did, rather openly, is corrupt. Having the IRS harass political opponents is corrupt. Stealing AP records without a warrant is corrupt. These things aren't made up, they happened. And the buck stops in the oval office. Period, end of story. Nixon denied involvement in Watergate, Obama in these three scandals. Aside from their political parties there is really no difference. 10 hours ago
It is rather obvious that the government is not competent, and it's becoming increasingly obvious that the Obama administration is as crooked as it can get. Hey, it's what America voted for, at least those the IRS let vote. 2 days ago
Okay Bill, explain this to me. She killed him, admitted it, said self-defense. So what does conviction do? Emboldens men who beat women. That's like a plus? And first degree? She brought a gun, and stabbed him? It isn't a trial, it isn't even due process. It's a guillotine in the village square. Most murderers get away with it, that's just lame. When you catch one, you could at least examine it in such a way as to catch more. Don't you think Bill? I'd rather not be murdered, which is my only skin in the game. Isn't that why I pay my taxes?3 days ago
I guess arrogant and condescending is pretty elastic, in that one size seems to fit all. What I find funny is the naiveté
“Fair wages and full employment for the ‘47 percent’ will grow our economy faster than more top-loaded tax breaks!” When the problem is over supply caused by over production such a circumstance would crash everything in a matter of days. 4 days ago
“The most erroneous assumption is to the effect that the aim of public education is to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence, and so make them fit to discharge the duties of citizenship in an enlightened and independent manner. Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever the pretensions of politicians, pedagogues and other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else.” ― H.L. Mencken7 days ago
"An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an originals motivated be necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human.” Man Ray
Public education is reproduction, and if we convince everyone it is good and to do it, we never progress. That is why people like Steve Jobs, and others were drop-outs. We need to be divine.1 week ago
• Persistent sad, anxious or empty feelings. And sixty years of mistakes.
• Feelings of hopelessness, and/or pessimism. I am a pessimist, if I had a chance to influence anything I wouldn't, don't want the responsibility.But I am a occasionally happily surprised
• Feelings of guilt, worthlessness and/or helplessness Never helpless, constantly guilty and probably worthless, if I think about it.
• Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex most of them, after a while the novelty fades.
• Fatigue and decreased energy. I can't play handball or squash anymore,
• Difficulty concentrating, remembering details and making decisions. Yeh, it gets harder, but decisions grow and are considered longer
• Insomnia, waking up during the night, or excessive sleeping. Every night between four and five.
We all get there. it's called growing up. And unless we die young, we will all have to do it, So women grow up faster than men do, That's all you've said.1 week ago
Education is either a residual power of the states or a personal choice, the DOE is an unConstitutional instrument to distribute graft. It is nothing else. Our government is supposed be limited and handle their sphere efficiently and economically. When unions and political privilege change the equation, the unintended result is graft and corruption. Let's do this bit the way Jim. Sam, John and the rest wrote it.1 week ago
