"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...
<quoted text>lol! So what would be your definition of a "qualified" teacher for that position?
Seems to me, a teacher qualified to teach 'engineering' would have spent at least 6 months as an engineer........but what do I know? I didn't start teaching children until I'd given birth to and raised two American White Boys.

Well, it's just for the mathematics. No different than the mathematics for physics.
<quoted text> Like the government unemployment numbers and the Obamacare financing.
I agree, I dont believe Obama's DOL unemployment numbers which they cant reflect the true unemployed in the US especially after Clinton changed the way unemployment is Calculated and that is why I didnt even believe the unemployed numbers during G.W.Bush Adminstration and unemployment was high during his adminstration which there was several unemployment extensions under Bush.
<quoted text> 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). http://surveys.ap.org/ 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> Seriously doubt if even 5% of the high schools in America have a teacher "qualified to teach calculus to a future engineer."
I once read a typical syllabus for early 1800 to early 1900 American grade schools and was stunned. Those kids could run circles around today's kids in math, history, writing and reading.
Lincoln came out of it.
Today's teachers can instruct their students to use social networks and how we need to give out prizes to everyone but they are lost when it comes to teaching critical and independent thought. They are sheep leading the sheep.

<quoted text> The majority of Americans did want Obama's version of health care reform passed. It was passed anyway proving he wasn't "here to do the will of the people". The majority of Americans believe we are on the wrong track. Obama is taking us down the same one proving he isn't "here to do the will of the people". The majority of Americans were against the nearly trillion dollar stimulus and nothing to show for it. Obama spent it anyway proving he wasn't "here for the will of the people". So I have no idea what you're talking about. By the way, he's a Black Liberation Theologist with Muslim sympathies.
Well Carol a great many people objected to Obamacare because it didn't include the public option to compete with the private insurers. But the GOP and some blue dog Democrats wanted no part of it. www.reuters.com/.../us-healthcare-usa-poll-id... ... The opposition to health care reform is ebbing now that people are cutting through the right wing lies and seeing the benefits. My son who turns 21 next spring won't be taken off our policy and we won't have to come up with more money to cover him while he finishes school and gets a job that will offer him his own coverage. People in the middle of chemotherapy won't have their treatment discontinued because of a cap ,on their coverage. Private insurance has to use 80% of the money they get from premiums to actually provide health care instead of lining executive pockets or give refunds which many have already gotten. The percentage of people that think the country is on the wrong track is shrinking. The latest USA Today/ Gallup poll shows that 54% expect conditions to improve over the next four years. By the way Carol, how many thought the country was on the wrong track during the Bush administration? As for the stimulus, a recent poll by the National Journal showed that a plurality of 47% said that the stimulus was good for the country while 31% said it was bad. www.nationaljournal.com/.../poll-americans-wa... ... By the way Carol Americans by a two 6to one margin want those making over $250,000 a year to pay more in taxes. Why isn't the GOP listening to the will of the people? Obama won Carol, the Romney/Ryan slash and burn philosophy was rejected. Live with it.
Fiscal Cliff, Day 31: A GOP Entitlement’s Huge Price Tag
Democrats are the party of entitlements, but an overlooked irony in the fiscal cliff stand-off is that it’s the Republican-designed Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit that threatens to explode entitlement costs, by as much as $1 trillion in 10 years.
The Texas Tribune Likely Increase in Births Has Some Lawmakers Revisiting Cuts
The latest Health and Human Services Commission projections being circulated among Texas lawmakers indicate that during the 2014-15 biennium, poor women will deliver an estimated 23,760 more babies than they would have, as a result of their reduced access to state-subsidized birth control. The additional cost to taxpayers is expected to be as much as $273 million —$103 million to $108 million to the state’s general revenue budget alone — and the bulk of it is the cost of caring for those infants under Medicaid.....
“I’ve debated this in Republican clubs with people — people who say it’s not the government’s role to provide family planning,” said Dr. Deuell, a primary care physician.“Ultimately, they’re right. But you have to look at what happens if we don’t.”
