In 1989 the budget for the federal Department of Education was $22.8 billion. By 2008 it was $68.6 billion. Even adjusting for inflation, federal education spending almost doubled. So more federal money was flowing from Washington into education; much more, of course, was spent by local governments, the traditional funders of schools. If the money had been used well, we might have expected federal spending to actually go down. Public schools need to go. They are a waste of tax money. Let the privet school do what they do best.
Abolish the Dept. Of Education and kids will benefit immediately. What a waste of money.

I love how you people are want government not to permit gay marriage & then you post the government should have nothing to do with it.
Why are there Tax benefits to being married? Why do we need to pay them off and ask their permission to marry? Licenses and permits on social behaviors is nothing less than extortion.

Not name calling when it is a fact.
Obama has authorized 193 drone strikes in Pakistan – four times the amount authorized by George W. Bush. According to Global Research, over the past 4 years Obama has authorized attacks in Pakistan which have killed more than 800 innocent civilians and just 22 Al-Qaeda officers.

That constitutes at least 36 civilians per target.

How many of those are children? A new study puts it in perspective.

just curious if your blinding faith in all things liberal prevents any common sense.
Sure nitwit, just because a few people take advantage of the shelter system then we should do away with it right? Wrong! The vast majority of those who use it are genuinely in need.
As to your ignorant opinion on automatic citizenship you'll have to take that up with the Constitution which states in the 14th Amendment;
Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.
By the way, uber conservative screech owl Michelle Malkin is an "anchor baby" and got her citizenship exactly this way
You're just another egocentric sociopath and a complete idiot.

Everyone is dependent on government you vomitous cretin. Corporations are especially dependent on roads built by the government to move their goods they depend on local police and fire departments to protect their property and the courts to enforce their contracts and property rights. We depend on the government to keep our air and water clean. Workers depend on government regulations to keep workplaces safe so that a job is not an exercise in survival.

Sandy Springs, Georgia - The City that Outsourced Everything
While cities across the country are cutting services, raising taxes and contemplating bankruptcy, something extraordinary is happening in a suburban community just north of Atlanta, Georgia.

Since incorporating in 2005, Sandy Springs has improved its services, invested tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure and kept taxes flat. And get this: Sandy Springs has no long-term liabilities.

This is the story of Sandy Springs, Georgia—the city that outsourced everything.

Approximately 8 minutes.

Patty,

You lack the ability to assign context to thoughts. Comparing a current political agenda of the leftwing Democrat Party with basic reasons why governments exist is just silly. This is why you will never amount to anything more than a blue collar worker or clerk. The Democrats need people like you who cannot reason. You are putty in their hands.

He didn't hand pick this war, did he? Nah, Infact he voted against it! Now that he's in office he has to do what bush couldn't, wouldn't, or wasn't able to do. It's that old say of sending a boy to do a mans job, but in opposite perspective. Obama is a man doing a boys (George W. Bush's) job! All of a sudden ya'll don't know the meaning of collateral damage now that Obama's in office. Yet you knew the meaning quite well when Bush executed hundreds of thousands of innocent iraqis & over 4,000 American service personnel all on the whim of a lie! A lie to disguise his true purpose behind the invasion, thievery of Iraq oil supplies. Countless military personnel have spoken out against that regime & told their true mission! If Pakistan wanted to stop the drone strike, they would stop harboring & hiding terrorist. Try have WMDs! They could easily take Obama's persistence as an act of war, but they won't. Because they've already been caught out there lying about Bin Laden & a couple other Al Queda leaders! You people don't seem to understand the meaning of war. Bet you'll learn when someone weak is president & another country invades us. You think they gonna be worried about innocent civilians? I seriously doubt it!

Then don't get a marriage license , exchange vows & be married in your own right. No one forces you to get legally married if you do not want the legal benefits.

So, only Al Qaeda officers count?

What you leave all other terrorists go free & just kill officers?

When these terrorists go to be among their friends & family, they put those people at risk.

But hey, keep defending Al Qaeda, its about par for the course for you right whines these days.

You don'rt give a rat's ass that Bush killed 4000 soldiers, tens of thousands of civilians in his made up war in Iraq, but God Damn It, those the drone strikes.

Do you people ever listen yo just how GD stupid you sound?

Five Appalling Facts About The Monsanto Protection Act Obama Signed Into Law:

The 5 Horrible Facts

1. The ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of controversial genetically modified (aka GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) seeds, no matter what health issues may arise concerning GMOs in the future.(Studies have revealed severe adverse health effects related to the consumption of genetically modified foods.)

2. The provision’s language was written in collusion with Monsanto on a provision that in effect allows them to keep selling seeds, which can then go on to be planted, even if it is found to be harmful to consumers, is stunning.

3. Many members of Congress were apparently unaware that the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ existed within the bill they were voting on. HR 933 was a spending bill aimed at averting a government shutdown.

In this hidden backroom deal, Sen.[Barbara] Mikulski turned her back on consumer, environmental and farmer protection in favor of corporate welfare for biotech companies such as Monsanto, Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of the the Center for Food Safety said in a statement. This abuse of power is not the kind of leadership the public has come to expect from Sen. Mikulski or the Democrat Majority in the Senate.

4. On Tuesday, Obama signed HR 933 while the rest of the nation fixated on gay marriage as the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument concerning California’s Proposition 8.”(250,000 voters signed a petition opposing the provision.)

5. The precedent, the message it sends is that corporations can get around consumer protections and safety. It suggests that court challenges are a privilege, not a right.

Opponents of the provision say it was jammed through Congress without a proper hearing in relevant committees. I wonder why that would be….

Obama said in 2007 that he would “immediately work to label GM foods if elected, Obama in 2012 appointed a Monsanto executive as his administration’s food safety czar. No wonder the bill was signed by Obama, paving the way for mutant food to hit the grocery store shelves without any obstacles.
