It does not matter what wrongs are committed by obama and the left. Liberals will defend their actions and will go diwn with the ship. I have tried to explain it to old school demos and show them the truth wright there in front of their faces such as cylindra, Bengazi, fast and furious, the lie about healthcare and keeping your insurance, the fact that liberals are anti God, pro abortion, duped by Gore on global warming, Obamas past drug use, his hatred for our Nationa Anthem, not putting his hand on his heart while it was being showcased. The anti American president still gets support from media no matter what..lol. Its comical how weak our media is, bunch of spineless obama bots. We need true leadership , really. God please help my country.
“Equal under the Law” is the only true equality, but that would mean everyone must compete and the Liberal screams and squirms when they hear that word. They scream because they are the retards of society...the idiots, and the circus of monkeys.

Trying to clean up Oblama's lies::
Lawmakers push to keep Obama's health care pledge
Associated Press By DAVID ESPO
4 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP)— Little more than a week after millions of consumers received health care cancellation notices, lawmakers in both parties are pushing legislation to redeem President Barack Obama's long-ago pledge that anyone liking their coverage will be allowed to keep it under the nation's controversial new law.
The result is a stern new challenge for the White House as it struggles to fix website woes for the signup portal for those seeking to enroll under the law, and simultaneously copes with angry consumers who rightly or wrongly blame "Obamacare" for cancellation letters mailed by insurers.
Oblamakare was so ill conceived it's laughable, except to those it will hurt.

Republicans Have Grown To Hate America As Much As They Hate President Obama
There is a popular saying that Republicans hate President Obama more than they love America, and although Republicans hate the President with extreme prejudice, they hate Americans with the same intensity as they do the President. If any American does not believe it, let them cite one demographic that has not been adversely affected by Republicans, or one thing they have done to help the people. It is time for Americans to face a sad truth and that is if they are people of color, women, senior citizens, middle class, children, Christian, Veterans, or poor they are under assault in the Republican war on Americans.

O'bamaliarcare is the greatest intrusion into the private lives of Americans in our history. And you might recall Thomas Jefferson wrote a little document detailing the intrusive nature of government, which established the United States of America.

The only people being assaulted are the Americans that believe the government owes them their life style. Democrats hate personal responsibility, get these losers off their dead asses.

Can you believe Lily said that to me?

Especially when even the NEA knows why teachers are leaving the profession en masse?

Because "workplace conditions are sometimes so surreal they make leaving the profession seem like their best or only option."

And "the National Center for Education Statistics outlined a series of reasons why the numbers are swelling"?

And "what they're hearing from educators is disheartening"?

Winds of change, as natural as can be, is being demonstrated by our leadership state on politics, California.
Oh how they emulated our nation with partisan paralysis and government dysfunction. A place where runaway deficits, gridlocked budgets and voter initiatives suppressed.
Slashed by the power of their legislators. Circuses of recalls sprang up and climaxing with recalling a governor with but 10 months in his second term.
Presently California has once again taken the lead of leadership.
Celebrating with parades of bill signings that were never the norm before are becoming common place. Sharp difference from the National political agenda, that have so much difficulty in addressing any issue and finding a solution.
California is now the acrimony of our national shameful dysfunctional congress. California has moved on school financing, immigrations, gun control, and abortions. California has moved on to new frontiers of political problems as they arise
Striking a tone for fiscal issues and productivity moderation under a one party rule of the democrats. Only 3 years ago a republican governor held power. Presently the republicans have been dismissed to a point of irrelevance. House, Senate and Executive branches are now completely under democrat control.
Sacramento is presently demonstrating the benefits of on party rule under democratic rule. Eliminating partisanship rule they have republicans now voting on immigration reforms ! Democrats voting for streamlining environmental regulations ! Something unheard of before, as stated by Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California. How you may ask?
Nonpartisan commission drew the lines for districts voters representations. No longer under the biases of a calculating political party.
Voters approved of removing stringent term limits on their representatives and senators. Increasing experienced lawmakers who are not always ruling with their eyes on the horizon for the next election cycle. Adding experienced politics with focused senators and representatives.… Results..
Republican Anthony Cannella co-sponsored a bill with Democrat Governor Brown on permitting unauthorized immigrants to obtain drivers licenses. Stating that he is no longer stringently held to the republican base, as a result of the independent nonpartisan commission drawing the lines for district voters.“It’s given more courage to my Republican colleagues,” he said.“They were afraid of getting primaries. Now, it’s not just their base they have to appeal to.”
Adam Mendelsohn a senior republican advisor championed the ballot changes.
“It gives Republicans the chance to break from their caucus on certain issues,” he said.“It is very different than it was four or five years ago.”
Democrats are also feeling the changes. J. Stephen Peace head of Independent Voters sites an example; “Look at the Chamber of Commerce job kills list — every measure on it was defeated except the increase in the minimum wage.”
Kathy Feng executive director of Common Cause analysis ; “They have already started to create a more functional Legislature ”“In light of the shutdown on the federal level, what happened in California has provided even more of a contrast.”
Sam Blakeslee {R} head of the California Reform Institute ; “We can already see that these reforms are improving the function of the Legislature and forcing people to come out of their partisan boxes and talk to the broader electorate,”“We’re seeing, almost against the odds, a more centrist Legislature, at least when it comes to jobs and budget issues.”
Once again California has discovered the political leadership to eradicate us from the dysfunctional by partisan party ideology that plagues this nation.“As California goes, so does the nation”….
California is circling the drain.

And businesses are moving to Texas.

Looking for a job? Educate yourself and get one. Its easy as pie.
As I predicted. Columbus Ohio is the first to publicly announce the growing gap of Primary Care Physicians. Obamacare has stimulated an employment scenario. New uninsured patients requiring primary care will be flooding the markets as they become insured on January 1st 2014. Demand for Primary Care Physicians will be in ever increasing demand, as well as all of the orbiting fields that support primary care.{Nurses, medical assistance, administrators, Maintenance personnel etc., etc.} Emergency Rooms {ER’s} will start to lose their primary care patients to “Private Primary Care Physicians”. Relieving the burden of financially costly primary care status to their ER’s. Reducing cost of Health Care.
This will take years to fill in this gap. The “Association of American Medical Colleges” estimates that within 2 years there will be a shortage of 33,000 Primary Care Physicians to rise up to 66,000 within a decade. Imagine how many will be required in the orbiting fields , that supports private Primary Care Physicians. Looking for a job?
Now doctors will start to organize their patient loads to what each one is comfortable with. Some will use retainer fee’s for the more affluent, returning us to the good old days of doctors making house calls. Suppressing waiting time for patients in their waiting rooms. Increasing an atmosphere for quality time for the one on one doctor patient scenario’s. Suppressing the unnecessary medical test , as the doctor will be more familiar with their patients. Decreasing the HMO’s intrusive bureaucratic death panel decisions. Decreasing cost to Health Care.
New York is throwing $Millions on the problem, Texas has approved for two Medical schools to provide Primary Care Physicians and Florida has extended the authority of their optometrist to prescribe additional medications, related to their fields.
Nevada is the lowest per capita for efforts to close the Primary Care Physician gap followed by Mississippi, Utah, Texas and Idaho, according to the Association Of Medical Colleges.
Presently Primary Care Resident Doctors are overwhelmed with hundreds of offers to choose from. If you don’t have a Primary Care Physician, suggest you make haste to acquire one before they close their doors to new patients.
Obamacare will provide millions of jobs and lower Health cost at greater quality.
Republicans desire the old truly tested failure of the past on this Health Care system. Promoting insurance monopolies with their ever increasing cost and dwindling quality care.
Harvard in 2009 did a study on our nations health care system. Discovered we were losing 45,000 citizens per year simply due to lack of primary care health. Ah but that’s the republican way. Lower the surplus population. Bah Humbug I say to them…
Boy, you sure go out of your way to try and convince yourself you haven't been lied to and duped by your own party.

Sure hope Lily reads this.

Unfortunately, those who hold the keys to power in school reform are by and large those who are far removed from the realities of classroom teaching.

Teachers cannot help but feel that they ended up at the bottom of the food chain. Politicians who have never taught a child in their life enact legislation with naive indifference to its practicality at the classroom level. State and district administrators then implement the legislation with callous disregard for its negative impact on those who face flesh-and-blood children in the classroom each day.

Just as current legislation and education policies have had a negative impact on teachers, the departure of teachers will have a negative impact on our children.

And, as more and more of them choose to resign, their letters will take various forms, but the underlying message will be the same:“Enough, I’m outta here!”

Only someone who has never been in the teaching profession would think that.

"According to the National Education Association, there is a national shortage of teachers. The NEA reported that 20% of newly hired teachers leave the classroom within the first three years of teaching. In urban areas, the numbers are closer to 50%.

"According to The National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future, the number of teachers leaving the classroom was increasing faster than they could be replaced."

Some of the best teachers I worked with wanted out.

Why would you even think that anyway?
