Teachers make very good money thanks to being unionized, but they still attract those who "can't", or won't, or have no clue". The reason the NEA violently opposes school vouchers is that at least half of their members would be unemployed in a competitive environment. Of all the professions those students who enter college to become teachers are generally on the lower end of GPA's and in the bottom quartile of SAT scores. Those who actually graduate as teachers generally can be found with mid to low range GPA's after four years of college and business grads who shift to teaching AFTER trying the private sector because they, "felt a calling", are those individuals who were going no place fast or who had been bounced out of management accelerated programs.
The call of good pay, good benefits, three months off every year, and TENURE is too much for some of our less motivated to ignore.

You morons act like this was a fully staffed mini embassy.
You are lying. Al Qaeda did not decide to decentralize at all. They became that way when the bulk of their leaders were killed or captured.
This is just another examples of how right whiners lie & make up excuses to avoid giving Obama credit for taking out Al Qaeda leadership.
You people are pathetic
You're a pathetic liar (or maybe you just buy the party line because you're stupid). Four Americans were killed while that lazy SOB slept in the WH dreaming of raising lots of money the next day, and the fat cow was sleeping dreaming of her next rendezvous with Janet Napolitano. Neither cared that they put Americans at high risk and didn't even attempt to save them. The country would demand the arrest, the convictions, and imprisonment of firefighters who REFUSED to attempt to save four lives and would add fifty years if said firefighters lied. Sorry, ask any veteran, any veteran from any war or time period and you'll get the same answer 99.5% of the time, "You leave no one to needlessly die, no one's body to be desecrated". Those men were killed thinking help would be coming and they were killed by two non-caring, ugly, pathetic liars. You're one of their ilk, I'm thinking.

But we know for a fact it is not the party in power today. They had to lie about the First Quarter inflation rate and lower it, to get that pathetic 0.06% Growth Rate. In fact they have not released any economic or employment figures in nearly six years that haven't had to be revised downward. None and they have jerry-rigged the numbers so many times, this administration has no idea where we are in recovery. A lot of things happened to cause the '08 economic destruction and it wasn't just Bush, it was crooks like Frank and Dodd taking payoffs from the housing loaners.

Unions don't build anything, the COMPANIES that employ the union members spur the economy therefore build the middle class! Your comment speaks volumes. Keep celebrating your lies and failures from the left! I bet if you keep polishing bo's turds they'll come clean soon!

Fed Chair:‘Deficits Will Rise to Unsustainable Levels’
May 7, 2014 - 5:27 PM
By Terence P. Jeffrey
( CNSNews.com )- Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen, referencing the Congressional Budget Office's long-term budget projections, told the Joint Economic Committee of Congress today that under current policies the federal government’s deficits “will rise to unsustainable levels.”
In the 10-year budget projections it released in April, the CBO estimated that the federal government will run $7.618 trillion in deficits from 2015 through 2024. At the same time, the CBO projected that the federal government’s debt held by the public would rise from $11.983 trillion at the end of fiscal 2013 to $20.947 trillion by the end of 2024.
The debt held by the public is the part of the U.S. government debt that is not held by the federal government itself. It primarily consists of marketable Treasury securities, including bills, notes and bonds. It does not include what the government calls “intragovernmental debt," which is the money the Treasury has borrowed out of the Social Security Trust Fund and other government trust funds to pay current expenses.
The total debt of the federal government at the end of fiscal 2013--including both the debt held by the public and the intragovernmental debt--was $16.719 trillion. The CBO estimates that by 2024, the total debt of the federal government will be $27.159 trillion—of which $20.947 trillion will be debt held by the public.
If that projection holds up, the federal debt held by the public in 2024 would be more than four times the $5.035 trillion federal debt held by the public at the end of 2007.
Yellen made her statement about unsustainable deficits when she was questioned by Sen. Dan Coats (R.-Ind.). Coats remarked that businessmen in Indiana told him that their businesses were underperforming at this time because of the uncertainty they felt as result of federal taxation and regulatory policies.
Debt Held by Public in 2024
“What recommendations would you give to us in terms of dealing with this uncertainty that is basically causing a lot of these businesses to underperform?” Coats asked.
“So, I agree with you,” said Yellen.“My own discussions with businesses, I hear exactly the same things that you are citing: concerns with regulations, about taxation, about uncertainty about fiscal policy.
“I guess one recommendation that I would give you is that long-term budget deficits, we can see in, for example, CBO’s very long-term projections, that they remain,” said Yellen.“There is more work to do to put fiscal policy on a sustainable course. That progress has been made over the last several years, in bringing down deficits in the short term, but that a combination of demographics, the structure of entitlement programs, and historic trends in health-care costs, we can see that over the long-term deficits will rise to unsustainable levels relative to the economy.

“And," she said, "putting in place a package of reforms—ones, I know these are very controversial matters--but that would probably help confidence.”
Coats later said to Yellen:“You join a long list of very responsible Americans who have the experience and the expertise to give us some warnings about what may happen in the future and our inability to act over the last several years now in addressing these major problems that are going to have significant consequences on the economy of this country and on future generations.
“I don’t know what it is going to take for us to summon the will to do what we all know that we need to do,” said Coats.“But I appreciate your adding your name to that long list saying you have a responsibility up here and you’re not fulfilling that responsibility.”
According to the CBO,“mandatory” federal spending will increase approximately 58 percent over the next ten years, rising from $2.32 trillion in 2015 to $3.664 trillion in 2024. Over that decade, total federal “mandatory” spending will be $29.737 trillion.
That will include $8.25 trillion on Medicare,$4.55 trillion on Medicaid,$9.9 trillion on Social Security,$1.78 trillion on disability insurance, and $728 billion on food stamps.
