'Lot of activity before the end of the year perhaps due to the tax increases.' What? You never heard of Christmas? Don't you buy presents? Cheapskate.

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.

I'll stick with the "old white mens" platform that created the greatest nation on earth, you will countinue to support a socialistic tyranny that has failed every time it has been tried. Unlike you I have no need or want for a master to think for me or take care of me.

In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler and the Nazis. Godwin's law often applied to threads, and has been invoked for the inappropriate use of Nazi analogies in articles or speeches

It's the progressive approach in education that is failing our students.

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.

I was merely stating a fact. Hitler had the media behind him.

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.
