It's not up to you - or Galt either for that matter - which school a parent chooses for their child - religious-based or not - especially when their child has no chance of getting educated in the liberally-run inner city schools which are failing and leading to even more poverty and hopelessness.

The choice should be up to the parent. What business is it of yours or mine? So what if taxpayers pay for all institutions of learning if children are getting educated?

They're learning secularism and liberally indoctrinated in the public schools and we pay for that. How's that workin' out?

Galt agrees that the choice should be up to the parent. They can take what is offered by the public schools, or they can pay for an alternative. Except in the inner city ghettos, the public school education is more than adequate. In the inner city ghettos, the people get what they vote for, which is overpaid union slugs who don't give a damn about the students. In fact, the union slugs hate the little black bastards.

Wasn't always that way...seems like that type of thing has just went fifty to sixty years backwards (wayyy less if anyone grew up above the Mason Dixon line) with all the racist race baiting over the past few years.

The New York City public schools were once among the best in the country, but are now among the worst.

Any guesses why?

Unfortunately, the children in the inner cities don't have a vote or a voice. They are doomed to a vicious cycle of poverty.

The question you should be asking is why are democrats the most adamant about refusing a voucher system dooming these children to poverty?

You know the answer. Educated and prosperous blacks might not need the government teat any longer.

Just in case anyone is interested in all the schools the Prez attended,
starting in elementary and going all the way through. His girls are also
getting stellar educations. I have no idea what grades they are in because I don't follow the family that closely.

Another alternative is to fire the incompetent administrators and teachers and hire motivated personnel.

Perhaps your idol "the Prez" should send his daughters to the crummy schools that other black children in Washington are sentenced to so that he could have some understanding of the problem.

This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-
Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.
Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.
He began his first presidential campaign in 2007, defeating Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote. During his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, Obama called for full equality for gays: "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."
On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.
Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Barack Obama appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency. Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by Obama on May 26, 2009, was confirmed on August 6, 2009, becoming the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, nominated by Obama on May 10, 2010, was confirmed on August 5, 2010, bringing the number of women sitting simultaneously on the Court to three, for the first time in American history.
On January 16, 2013 President Obama outlined a series of sweeping gun control proposals, urging Congress to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, introduce background checks on all gun sales, pass a ban on possession and sale of armor-piercing bullets, as well as additional measures.
Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.
So what's your point? He still sucks as a leader and has screwed up every step of the way and on every level.

We're drowning and you're explaining why he capsized the boat.

What the heck is up with that?
