Barack Obama, our next President

Good news even in Orlando the capital of self pity

Republican Jim DeMint of South Carolina is exiting the Senate before his term is over, which is a win/win all around. He'll leave to head up the Heritage Foundation and Stephen Colbert can take his Senate seat.

Yes, you read that correctly. Under the guise of his blustery "Colbert Report" character, Stephen Colbert has launched stunt presidential bids twice, in 2008 and 2012, attempting to get on the ballot only in his native state of South Carolina. So why wouldn't he try to nab a U.S. Senate seat from the state?

After trying to run for president in 2012, he set up his own Super PAC in order to raise money for his preferred campaign causes (such as rallies for Herman Cain after he dropped out of the race). In a recent interview with Playboy, Colbert explained that he started the Super PAC as a sort of public education masked as comedy. "If you just talk about it, everyone sits on their hands and the reality of it just watches as you talk about it," he said. "But by putting yourself in it, reality has to respond to your actions."

"The Colbert Report" eventually received a Peabody Award for its Super PAC coverage.

Not in all schools but an underlying progressive approach in education is the philosophy adopted by many schools that has been taken to a whole new level.

The progressive approach has been around for a while, but it has obviously failed.

Wrong, imbecile.

The 'no kids left behind' program, started by bush, makes federal funding contingent with attendance.

The progressive approach in education took hold and grew after the 1960s. Before the 1960s, the kind of problems we have in education today were virtually nonexistent.

It doesn't take a genius.

Before the election I told everybody on topix that america was in transition. Barack Obama is just the 1st representation of that transition. America is the land of the free & through freedom breeds evolution. If your forefathers were futuristic enough to write the constitution, why they couldn't see that over time a nation of immigrants also breeds evolution (less white influence)? You keep blatantly skipping over the fact that the constitution was written by a bunch of slave owning racist in a time of slavery, so how can it not be biased in favor of the white race ? Obama speaks equality proven through his actions. This is why he's hell bent on taxing the rich whom ya'll call successful. I guess one would be successful in a 1 sided fight tilted towards the ancestors & leaders of the ugliest time in americas short history. If this nation will fall, it will be because of backdoor deals & greed of the elite (entitled white folk) that refuse to move out of the unequal times of the past. See bra, you cant just read history. You have to also have a grip on reality or you'll still be believing Christopher Columbus found America.
the sad part of your post is you're inabilty to see the evolution you seek will return us to the days of kings , where all are servants to the government.

Politics affects both winners and losers. You could be on the losing side the next time - as in times past.

I'd rather stick around a little while to see what happens if it's alright with you.

When I was still in the classroom in the mid 1990s, the progressive agenda was very much alive and well.

The most liberal teachers were saying things like "if it involves common sense, you won't find it in the public school system" and "if you care, you won't last."

Even back then, the good teachers were leaving by the droves because of progressive politics tying their hands to teach effectively in the classroom.

The apathatic teachers and the ones who didn't care were the most happy because the unions kept giving them money to deal with it.

Are the students in the public schools with which you are "associated" doing better than the students in the rest of the country?

If not, your affiliation doesn't change the fact public schools are failing our students.

Some in GOP urge lawmakers to back tax hikes for changes in safety-net programs

A growing chorus of Republicans is urging House leaders to abandon their staunch opposition to higher tax rates for the wealthy with the aim of clearing the way for a broad deal that would also rein in the cost of federal health and retirement programs.

With less than a month before the “fiscal cliff” deadline, President Obama remains adamant about allowing tax rates to rise for the wealthiest 2 percent of taxpayers. Without such a deal, he is “absolutely” ready to go over the cliff, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said Wednesday on CNBC.

Many GOP centrists and some conservatives are calling on House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) to concede on rates now, while he still has some leverage to demand something in return. Republicans are eager to win changes to fast-growing safety-net programs, such as raising the eligibility age for Medicare and applying a less-generous measure of inflation to Social Security benefits.

After Dec. 31, tax rates for most Americans, including the wealthy, are set to automatically rise, and this could cost Republicans a key bargaining chip in winning changes to entitlements.

“I and some others are advocating giving the president what he wants,” said Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (R-Ohio). But he stressed that this must be part of a package that slows federal borrowing and reduces the debt by $4 trillion to $5 trillion.

“Quite frankly, some people in this 2 percent who call me, they’re more worried about the fiscal cliff than about the rates going up a couple points. That has bigger risk for them,” said LaTourette, a close Boehner ally who is retiring in January.

You're a dumbazz on the subject Carol. Florida is a Republican controlled state, the Florida Department of ED has been headed by Republican appointees and the individual elected county school board members are "mostly" Republicans.

This state's public schools are still reeling from the Jeb Bush experience which is/was anything but progressive.

We've had these discussions previously Carol__I'm over wasting time trying to sort through your jibberish.
