Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Why do we need the government for any of these products or services?

Galt also hates beach vacations, a total bore and an invitation to skin cancer. Suitable only for Bocajews.

Henry David Thoreau found something immensely beautiful outside of government. St. John the Baptist did.

So did Daniel Boone. And the Founding Fathers. And John Muir. And Israel Kamakawiwo&#699;ole...

Bush visited Africa twice...and required the same level of security, etc. I guess FOX is getting really desperate now that the IRS "scandal" has nothing to do with the WH, and since Benghazi witchhunt went no where.
In your opinion, did Lord Obama/Princess Hillary handle the Benghazi incident adequately? When they claimed it was a YouTube video up to two weeks after the 9/11 attach in Libya (Lord Obama addressed the UN saying a bunch of crap about the video to the UN) was he not telling the truth deliberately or was he blissfully ignorant?

He must be one or the other. Which one is it? TELL ME.

If Lord Obama doesn't take Moochelle or his kids, I'll believe that it's a diplomatic visit. Will you eat a big plate of crow if he takes his family?

No, the reason is purely economic..fewer teaching jobs.
Galt supports public education, but the public schools need to clean up their act and become responsive to students and parents instead of politicians.
Once upon a time, teaching was a greatly respected profession but it has seen better days. It's long slow decay and decline began with its organizing into Liberal Cells and the inclusion of losers, perverts and political hack radicals of the Left via unions.

To wit: the adolescent Magic Negro's communist and Muslim mentors.
The University of Chicago is a breeding ground for this sort of trash, for example.

Yes. Public Education needs to be responsive to students and parents. But because Public Education is increasingly centralized in Washington as a powerful tool for the Left, that hope is quickly fading.

That's why Home Schooling and Charter Schools are the last great hope for American Education.

Public education should be controlled at the local level, with minimal interference from State government. Federal involvement in education is a disaster that has driven parents to
private schools.

Parents may be able to educate their children at the elementary level, but few have the resources and knowledge to teach high school mathematics, physics, and chemistry.

Teacher unions do not represent the viewpoint of most teachers.

Try to separate the two.

Nobody gets a life sentence for sex crimes anymore unless there's a murder involved. And as for men getting more time for a similar sex crime, society tends to believe that men cause more physical harm and more terror than a woman does. Which they do, although I think women are getting stiffer sentences now than in the past too. Remember Mary Kay Latourneau?
How about Deborah LeFave? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deborah_lefave

"Debra Jean Beasley, better known under her former married name of Debra Lafave,(born August 28, 1980) is a former teacher at Angelo L. Greco Middle School in Temple Terrace, Florida. She pleaded guilty in 2005 to Lewd or Lascivious Battery. The charges stemmed from a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old student in the summer of 2004. Lafave's lawyer argued that she should not be sentenced to prison because she was so attractive: "To place Debbie into a Florida state women's penitentiary, to place an attractive young woman in that kind of hellhole, is like putting a piece of raw meat in with the lions," her lawyer, John Fitzgibbons, told a Florida court at the time. Lafave's plea bargain included no prison time, opting for 3 years house arrest due to safety concerns and 7 years probation."

Reduced sentence for being attractive? Hello? This means that the Menendez Brothers should have gottne 90 days for killing their parents. A juror later exclaimed that they just couldn't be guilty because they were so handsome!

Or Pamela Turner? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pamela_Rogers_Tu...

"Rogers faced 15 counts of sexual battery by an authority figure and 13 counts of statutory rape on February 4, 2005. The charges stemmed from her 3-month relationship with a teenage boy. Following her arrest, she posted bail of $50,000. When originally charged, Turner plead not guilty.

Rogers later pleaded no contest to four charges of sexual battery by an authority figure on August 12, 2005, as part of a deal with the prosecution. Her sentence was 270 days (about nine months) in the Warren County jail in Tennessee. During an eight-year suspended sentence, she must also serve a term of seven years and three months of probation, register as a sex offender, and surrender her teaching certificate for life."

9 months? NINE MONTHS?

"Appalling is the fact that many convicted female teachers receive little to no jail time, unlike their male predator counterparts. Many female teachers, convicted of sex crimes, get probation, a year or less in prison, and some receive temporary house arrest. Judges are quoted, in some of these cases, as telling the felons that their sentences would be much more severe if these female sexual predators were male. In truth, if these sexual predators were male, there would be public uproar."

Every normal high school boy dreams of making it with his attractive young teacher, the ultimate fantasy.

That's where the Public Library comes in:]

Feed a man a meal and he'll be back tomorrow for breakfast.
But teach him to fish and he's on his own forever.

Teach your children well and they'll learn how to learn.
Bill Gates, owns an entire Library of *The Great Courses*.
I own a few but can't afford his appetite.

Public Libraries of the future hold the potential to break away from Liberal Propaganda and allow young citizens to learn how to think.

I think that women get less time than "some" male perpetrators because in this male dominated society we assume that the younger, teen male was not hurt physically, that he probably was keen on the idea and hadn't been threatened with death if he told, like most male predators do. Our legal system is dominated by males and their "double-standards" that they have inflicted on society. Blame your frustration on them and tell them what you think about how unfair you think it is.

Judges don't always mete out true justice, that's life. Heck, I know of a judge who made the same "hell-hole" comment about a dwarf in our community who is a complete psycho. He claimed, "He won't stand a chance in there against regular sized inmates.", as an excuse for giving the dwarf absolutely no prison time at all and allowed him to continue terrorizing anybody, anytime he wanted. It was infuriating but that's justice in the hands of a liberal judge.
Neither "too pretty" nor "too short" should be an excuse for leniency as far as I'm concerned.

Yer preachin' to the choir, buddy. I don't think teachers should be banging underage kids either, no matter whether they are male or female. Even if the kid initiates the activity it's playing with fire and just plain wrong.

The rise in home-schooling is a "sign of the times" as my gammy would say and even though I understand *why* parents do it (I have cousins that are trying it out) I think that home-schooling is failing kids who may be hoping to enter college, especially if they have parents as dim as my cousins.:-/
