I'm sorry. You've never used a toilet in your life.
But you do use a toilet seat as bling-bling around your neck.
Throw all the feces you can Chimp...won't change the fact that the GOP can't win a national election.

You seem a little confused about how elections work.
Correction, Obama defeated McCain and Romney, not America.
America preferred Obama, and clearly you have completely missed the reasons why, which is fine by me, and why you'll continue losing elections.

Not when other students brought bagged lunches every day and were wearing the same old tee-shirts.
There's something very wrong with this picture.
Then report the parents, you spineless wimp. Call the parents out on their behavior, and the values they are teaching their children. Rather than be a racist passive aggressive whiner, DO something about it. Remind the parents just WHO is providing that free lunch.

Media criticism of this president and journalistic digging to get to the bottom of any suspected wrongdoing on the part of this president is sorely lacking.

In fact, I'd go so far as to say dangerously lacking.

They treat him with kid gloves.

Bush was hammered 24/7 by the media his entire two terms. Yet, the liberal media remains completly silent on Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Obama's contradictory sequester comments, the exploding debt, the Solyndra fiasco and the acceration of the drone program...just to name a few examples.

Surely, you, know this too.

Yeah stupid, wind and solar are so bogus that the Chinese are making heavy investments in both as are the Germans. The Chinese in particular are not fools. They realize that an economy based primarily on fossil fuels isn't sustainable in the long run. Morons like you can't see beyond the end of your nose.
By the way the earned income credit was put into law by Ronald Reagan. It puts money into the pockets of people who are going to spend it and stimulate the economy.
Your understanding of economics extends about as far as your little tallywhacker.

You mean like "if you're lucky enough to have a job, you're making less"?

The truth and demonizing are two different things entirely.

Any president who continually blames staff members, the secret service or the other party for their own blunders is a sign of a weak president.

The Chinese are investing only because the US government is subsidizing the sale of their products through tax credits. Drop the tax credits and the sales will evaporate.
Every megawatt of solar or wind power requires a megawatt of backup fossil power. Unless you don't mind freezing in the dark.
Look at it this way: the Jerk-In-Chief wants to pizz billions more down the drain on his Green Boondogles and the Chinese are eating it up like candy.

A Fool and his money are soon parted but, in this case, a Fool is parting us from our money.

I was standing behind a mama and her offspring at a 7-11 in Colorado Springs (not the cheapest place to buy groceries by a long-shot) when mama bought her middle-school aged kid a muffin and juice to go with her coffee and pastry, she paid for it with food stamps.
The kid was wearing a sport jacket, leather, that I could identify as $100+ because I had purchased a similar jacket a few months prior.
A guy at my office has a sweet Harley-Davidson (one that I could never afford) and a hand-held computer with all the bells and whistles. And his kids are among the 25% receiving free/reduced lunches in public schools.
Did you know that according to the Wall Street Journal, 2 years ago over 60% of the "poor" (those qualified for public assistance) in the US had CABLE TV?
Don't back down. Liberals are worthless parasites. They protect their own because they are too damn pathetic and lazy to pay their own way.
Yeah, uh huh. I'm sure a middle school kid would share your fashion sense.
Dumb ass.
Again, spineless wimp, why haven't you had the guts to call out your co worker for gaming the system?

When we were once sane and on the same page about protecting children from child rapists and repeat offenders, a mandatory sentence of 25 years would have been a no brainer.
The only 6 states left who still refuse to protect children now have a glaring spotlight on them.
Also, a few of the Obama media worshippers are starting to break from the pack. Let's hope more follow suit.
How much has NAMBLA contributed to the Boy Messiah's political fund?

My job was to teach their children. Not confront them about their bad decisions.

My observation did not affect my teaching them either.

The system was just screwed up back then as it is today. Abuses were and still are happening. So what good would it have done anyway?

The reason these abuses are so rampant and take place right under our noses is because there's no way the federal government can keep track of them all.

Yet, the federal government is now going to manage the nation's health care and give even more money to entitlement programs.

It's going to have to get a lot worse before it can start geting better, I'm afraid.

Bullshit. You were biased.
You're a weakling.
Abuses happen because wimps like you are brave on the internet, but spineless in life.
What good would it have done? It would have brought their attention to the values they were teaching their children. It may have made a difference.
I have had those conversations, but then I actually CARE
about my students, and who they grow up to be.
If a student has an I Phone, then Mom can afford $2.00 for lunch every day.

That little girl with the single stuffed toy looked as if she was barely suppressing a giggle fit.
The photographer says in the accompanying article that he learned much from the experience of engaging all of these children from different cultures with affluence or poverty.

First, their pride and excitement are shared universally. Second, those kids with more possessions are less amicable to to the sharing of their toys while those with less are more prone to share theirs.
