Good answer? You gotta be kidding, a BS answer.
To start with I am far from rich, comfortable yes. Busted my ass for 50 years, still work part time. Sent my kids to parochial schools, with our assistance, scholarships and loans they graduated from college. Good colleges, GU and EWSU. One is very successful in real estate, the other died in what should have been the prime of her life In addition I saved some money, I am not dependent on Social Security, I do take advantage of medicare with secondary insurance. My 401k and personal investments did okay, only idiots or those who depended upon losers got wiped out. You are just an envioussonofabitch, it is the rich's fault. You are a sad sack of shit. You always have to find someone or something to blame. The rich, Bush. Keep your hand out, it's the one thing you do well.

Nothing you said had nothing to do with my response. Reading your response I can tell your an old piece of shit wrinkled ass white man too stupid to understand that you are 1 person telling 1 persons life story. I come from the projects & though my life wasn't half as bad I've seen some real people living some real hard times. You too stupid to realize you've been blessed. You busted your ass! You think your the only 1? You ain't got much longer on this earth anyway old man so you'll be 1 less asshole america has to deal. It's fitting you & those like you come on te internet to talk shit that nobody even takes seriously. For every 1 success story you present, I can present you with 10 true american horror stories. It's okay to bail out wall st, but fuck main st. Your all for unfunded wars & rebuilding other countries, but you have a problem feeding the poor. GO OVERDOSE old man, you aint even worth my time or tax payers dollars.

Censorship inside of academia is rampant. Not just in grade schools but all the way to the Ivory Tower. It ain't gettin' better, either, since the Boy Messiah got in.
Good people need to feel that "We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."
Winnie knew the feeling of fighting ignorance and evil. Fight the good fight.
It's probably going to get worse before if gets better. If it even gets better.

We've lost our bearings and become too prideful somewhere along the way. It will probably take being brought to our knees before we realize how fragile we really are.

It's an interesting concept to build a play/movie around the musical works of someone or some group.

Pierce Brosnan plays that silent part well - a man being forced to listen to a woman spill her guts in angst and without uttering a single word in defense. Tough part:}

If taxes go up on 98% of Americans, that's on the GOP.
As for consumer confidence, this is retail's best Christmas in 4 years.
You're an idiot.
If Obama gets what he wants and the CBO says everyone's taxes will go up if he does, how is it on the GOP?

Or is it just a knee jerk reaction now?

Apparently Christmas shoppers didn't get the memo, or weren't polled. Best retail holiday season in years.
Maybe it's because everyone knows it might be the last good one in a while?

Sure hope not.

I actually thought that myself watching it again tonight.

Very effective acting doing nothing and saying nothing but doing and saying so much at the same time.

Of the 45 percent of whites who said they strongly or somewhat approve of the tea party movement, the study report showed,“only 35 percent believe Blacks to be hardworking, only 45 percent believe Blacks are intelligent, and only 41 percent think that Blacks are trustworthy.”*****

*****If that study doesn't indicate racism within the tea party, what would it take?
Nobody has suggested that all tea partiers are racist. But the 35-45% who are racist, by their own admission, taint the majority who probably are not.
A recent Associated Press poll showed a majority of both Democrats and Republicans held anti-black feelings (55 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans) as did about half of political independents (49 percent).

Scroll down and click on "October 27: Associated Press Poll - Racial Attitudes Topline"

65% of those polled said we're on the wrong track too.

<quoted text>Public high schools here expel students for part-time attendance. The alternative high schools, however, have higher academic standards than many of the regular ones - and the teachers are more invested (and less restricted) in educating, than in tenure or coffee breaks. Attendance is far better in the alt schools than it is in the regular schools, because the students ACTUALLY WANT TO BE THERE.
Many small school districts throughout the country have only one high school and cannot afford an "alternative high school."

<quoted text>Get out of here with that backwoods shit you dumb fk. An eighteen year old can sell three hundred fast food meals per hour with few if any mistakes. At McDonalds the order posts up before the preparation folks, is recorded on the managers log and at the Martin Brower commissary to compute tomorrows delivery.
Only a fkn moron doesn't understand that Flo the bad hungover chain smoking waitress left the building with Elvis.
Three hundred meals per hour is five per minute. The kitchen can't up with that, even if the kid can work the register that fast.

Big problem at McDonald's is favoring the drive-thru, resulting in long delays for in-store customers.

Big advantage for McDonald's is free WiFi in almost all restaurants.

<quoted text>Well, Ben Franklin actually had six months total formal education; Lincoln probably had no more than twelve, but the concept would seem to be "self-taught."

A lot of the students I've known who effectively "dropped out" to pursue an online diploma wasted their time and money.
Seriously doubt if even 5% of the high schools in America have a teacher "qualified to teach calculus to a future engineer."
