But why should you care anyway? You still have a problem we got rid of him when we did.
What I thought was interesting was how you said that our meddling in ME affairs might bear consequences.

How about academic requirements instead, rather than diplomas for part-time attendance?
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.

Homer cried too. No wait, no I didn't. Hey! 1956, you were just about to enter high school, pay attention in history class this time.

after getting smacked up side the head with it, Morris sees a little reality....

The Republican consultants are so enamored of negative ads that they do not appreciate the impact of rebuttal media and its capacity to wipe away negatives and trigger a backlash against the candidate who airs them. But the doctrine of always attack — reminiscent of the French and British generals in World War I — does not permit rebuttals, only new negatives.

And we paid the price.

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.

<quoted text>Aw, now, let's not tar everyone with that same brush; after all, carol also "claims" to have been a nurse when she wants to drop some Right to Life BS into the fan...I don't think Galt claims to be a product of public schools and flack obviously dropped out in middle school. I assume you don't get Gingrich confused with Buckley or Palin with Hitchens?
I once confused Gingrich with Romney's ass but I've since had my eyeglass prescription adjusted.

Meanwhile, I'm not impressed with the government's attempts at educating our youth. In fact, they pretty much suck at it.

<quoted text>I agree. All those extra taxes collected will run the country for about what 8 days? Obammy will keep promising free everything and before you know it there will be Greek style protests when there's no one left to pay the bill and China won't lend anymore $$. I saw protestors yesterday. They were complaining about their $7.50 an hour wages at McDonalds and want to unionize and have "living wages." As if saying "do you want fries with that?" should earn enough to support a family in NYC. Get ready for the $20 Happy Meal.
I take it you're opposed to minimum-wage earners raising children, since you acknowledge the impossibility of minimum wage to support a family?

What do you suggest?

How about castration of all newborn males whose parents make less than 50K per year? Would that do it for you?

Minimum wage part-time jobs were intended for students, and elderly folks supplementing their savings post-retirement. It was never intended to use part-time employment as the means to an employer's business model, but that is the format in which jobs are increasingly available. When you're a grown person with children, experiencing a lay-off, downsizing, outsourcing, or the entire elimination of one's former position throughout the workforce, whose job opportunities are summarily reduced to minimum-wage part-time jobs, or panhandling, which would you prefer we choose?
