You left teaching in the early 1990's after spending less than a decade in a semi rural Florida district yet go on as though you were the commissioner of education. NCLB came on board in 2001, long after you left the profession__I guess that disqualifies your opinion?
I suspect your attitude in combination with your mouth made you very unpopular in the system and you walked away with a chip on your shoulder which you still carry.

E.W. Jackson Has Been an Unmitigated Disaster for the Virginia GOP

There’s no question that the far-right candidate will lose in a landslide. Jackson’s not a candidate as much as he is a sideshow, an example of the base-driven politics that has crippled Virginia’s Republican Party in the general election.

To wit, here’s a short round-up of Jackson’s statements and positions in just the last week of the campaign. On guns, Jackson says,“Every person who has a concealed weapons permit and was trained to use a firearm…should be allowed to bring that firearm to school.” On rights for gay and lesbian Americans, he says,“How in the world can we expect our military to be blessed by the hand of almighty God if we allow our military to become the equivalent of Sodom and Gomorrah? God is not pleased.” On the right-wing grassroots, he says,“It was God’s plan to beget the Tea Party.” And on the question of education, he says Obama will “force schools to start teaching all children homosexuality.”

Cuccinelli has worked hard to avoid any association with Jackson; of all the events the attorney general held over the weekend, none featured the conservative clergyman and anti-gay activist. The irony, of course, is that Jackson’s candidacy is the direct result of Cuccinelli’s decision to push for a convention as opposed to a primary. Given his strong support among rank-and-file Republicans, odds are good that Cuccinelli would have won a primary for the Republican gubernatorial nomination. And he would have walked away from the contest with a sensible nominee; Jackson, as his sparsely attended events and low fundraising attest, is a niche product for a handful of voters. In a fair election against a capable opponent, he would have fallen far short of victory. As it stands, Jackson is now one of the faces of the Virginia GOP, and his presence on the ticket has been an unmitigated disaster.

Like Cain or West, Jackson’s career—and income—is earned with outrageous statements about government, Obama, and other African-Americans.

I think GW Bush was a genius. If we were able to maintain a presence in Iraq that had been planned all along-the middle east would have stabilized-we would have been there for years-we would have been able to stablize the entire country and the Middle East. But the ignorance of O'bama and his negotiating skills were null and void. Iraq is a killing field because of O'bama. That would have never happened under a Republican president.

There is no correlation between what you claim & anyone getting cancer.
When the Polio vaccines came out, they were tested OK because the virus you keep harping about was not discovered until 1960.
Once discovered, vaccines were changed, If fact, most went to the oral vaccine.
You act as though the government did it on purpose. Like they were supposed to remove a virus they never knew existed.
Then you f*cking morons take a statement made out of context & run screaming through the streets "OMG OMG the government purposefully gave us cancer!!! OMG OMG OMG"
You are dumber than sh*t.
Admit it dumb dave, the CDC is incompetent. The government was incompetent and you are incompetent. The information regarding SV40 contamination has been widely known for years. The question here is: why has the CDC decided to nix pages dealing with this blatantly obvious (possibly intentional?) snafu at the hands of the U.S. government? The vaccine was discovered to contain the monkey cancer virus in 1960, but the “existing polio vaccine stocks were not recalled and were used until 1963,” meaning the CDC was, for a period, consciously dispersing vaccines known to have a possible link to cancer, including to tens of millions of people in other countries, such as the UK, Australia, and the former Soviet Union. Why would you stick up for the government mistakes. Do you like liberal eugenics?

Blah Blah Blah

The penalties for being uninsured start at $95 per year, but the penalties can't be collected by the IRS if a person does not have a tax refund to attach.
The out of pocket costs required by Obamacare's Silver Plan for a non-smoking mother and father with two children making a gross before income taxes of $50,000 (roughly average salary for VA) would be $13,765 per year including the deductible of $10,400. That's 28% of their gross income -- not very affordable and about the same as guidelines for a mortgage payment. For such a family making $100,000 of gross income, The cost would be $21,431 including the deductible of $12,700, or 21% of gross income.
Blah Blah Blahblah blah
Democrats in Virginia will drive up health care costs, drive doctors out of the state, and then drive health care costs up even more because there will not be enough doctors practicing in the state
Funny thing.

I used the Kaiser calculator, plugged in Flackville's zip code, 50K & a family of 4 with two kids at home.

Silver plan costs:$8339.00 / Yr less $4973.00 subsidy.

WYTF, Flack? Your guy said premiums were $13765 & ignored the subsidy.

And, of course, you believe that lying sack of sh*t.

What part of 'radio' don't you understand? It's the same morning guy I have listened to since he took over the the old guy. He's 55, married, with a wife and 9 year old boy. He is pissed! He liked the plan he had before it was deemed illegal under Obamacare.

and all those taxes we pay to fund state and county hospitals--isn't that correct? so according to you we didn't need O'bamacare...thanks for clarifying...everyone was able to get care. See how you libs eventually slip up and tell the truth?
