I saw that only one person in North Carolina signed up for ochimpocare, and then they freeloaded (big surprise) and didn't pay for it.
No way it could be anyone but a loser like you.....

Be careful of your word usage. "ichimpo" lacks a penius. Only men have those and "ochimpo" is surely not a man.

Ok Sherlock, This lesson is simple:

Detroit is a prime example of Liberal Democrat Control which I have seen with my own eyes and Liberalism's affects and what the end product has done to Detroit.

Early American History was the focus - from Jamestown to the Civil War - at the fifth grade level. Also taught math, English, spelling, creative writing, Reading and Science.
History wasn't in the curriculum teaching first and second grade.
Assigned two research projects a year in my fifth grade classes too. Teaching research skills was important to me with a creative twist. Several were shared with the entire school at assemblies and were a big success. Students did the work on their own with my supervision and experienced the joy of learning.
But teaching early American History was just one subject among.
Just to clear that up.
You taught at grade school level for nine years in a semi rural Florida district (Polk).

Just to clear that up.

<quoted text>these explains why you make no sense what so ever in your post.
Looks like Lily adopted Realtime's favorite word - "gibberish".

Obama lied to the American people saying they could keep their insurance and their doctor..."gibberish" .

Millions of people are now without health care because of ACA..."gibberish".

More people are going to pay more for health insurance under ACA...
"gibberish".

A shortage of doctors and millions more seeking doctors means long waits and rationed care..."gibberish".

It's all gibberish.

Substituted in Illinois before moving to Florida too and taught Music Education at a private school one year. Just to get you up to snuff since you know so much about my personal life.

Always said I was an elementary school teacher mainly in Central Florida.

Was that supposed to be some kind of big revelation or something?

Your close but alas whoooosh right over your head. Only the most depraved naive could ever conceive that the 2008 disaster was established after the fact.
You fail to do research to discover its roots, go back over a century ago with the fastest acceleration occurring from the 1970s and up. During each republican administration they increased finical inequality as democrats suppressed its increase or even went as far as to reverse it for a brief moment in time.{F.D.R., Truman, Clinton}
Foxy tabloid pointed malarkey no longer cuts it with those of us that have enlighten ourselves. As the weak minded naives that are continuously bought off for 30 pieces of silver to destroy their democracy, fester in the Foxs den.
Yes we must have are naives although they are dwindling away with this Spartan educational system and our ability to communicate with simple researched facts at our fingertips. Hours of research done in a matter of minutes. Yes the naive herd will continue for their will always be that group of dysfunctional human beings. Its just the nature of this beast.
Too abbreviated for you? Ok then let's go through who it was that refused to controlled the issues with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae?
Bush Administration warned repeatedly this was a serious trouble and had to be revised. But who was it that said it was in good shape and no revision or additional control was needed?

Don't stress yourself I will supply the answers yet again.

Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd. Both democrats and both up to their necks in insider shenanigans political favor and cronyism.

Where are they by the way? Did they serve one day in jail for the felonies committed?
Yeah

The vast majority of conservative didn't condone the off-the-wall statements made by those two republicans either.
But the liberal media made absolutely sure they were seen as the voice of the entire Republican Party, didn't they?
In 2016, I hope the GOP finds a few liberals who emphatically advocate the killing of born alive babies and force you guys to have to deny they are the spokespeople for your entire party.
Tit for tat, I say. Time to learn how to play the game.

We all know a little about your personal life too.

But anyway...liberals really screwed up the purpose of NCLB too, didn't they?

They just can't seem to get anything right.

They figured it was much easier just to teach the test instead of the subject matter effectively enough so they could pass the test.

Those lazy liberals educators...whaddya we gonna do with them?
