Funny ... those who are most concerned about the subjective definition of "least competent" in the workplace are typically those labeled as "least competent. One has to wonder.

Not sure what's so funny.
Why would anyone be thrown under the bus for trading an American soldier for five goat herders? Only a moron like you would have let the Taliban behead an American soldier to then say Obama allowed him to be slaughtered.

Yeah .... in other words ..... They can be abysmal at their job of teaching and when the school attempts to dismiss them they can bankrupt the school in legal fees.
If Tenure was so important to the due process of the employee, then why is this not more prevalent in other industries?
Tenure appears great for the pathetic teachers in our schools today, but the children are of little concern.
Your lack of success in education isn't necessarily a reflection on the educational opportunities you've had, but more likely your inability to use them.
What's pathetic is people like you that won't take responsibility for their own failures, e.g. the teacher made me stupid, the president can't find me a job......

From what I understand, this was a very, very low turn-out election. Leading me to believe only the extremists anti-Cantor voters turned out in great numbers. Everyone else stayed home convinced there was no way Cantor could lose. Wouldn't surprise me at all if many of those pro-Cantor Republicans switch sides or just stay home again in November. It will be interesting.
I think this low voter turnout is the same way Murkowski lost in Alaska as well.

This is what I've come to expect from the t-p and their supporters so the winning isn't really a surprise. What is a surprise it who lost.

The bigger question is, is this just a precursor for things to come?

Sadly I have an education and am quite successful. So you childish taunt is meaningless,... but then you probably already knew that but your indoctrination caused the reflex action of sophomoric jabs.

The fact that you are quick to excuse the proficiency of the educators leads me to believe as I stated before ... you or someone close to you "is" one of these tenured failures.

The problem with your final statement is this: The president is not responsible for finding someone a job .... but the teacher "is" responsible for educating their students. It's apparent that someone failed you.

Understood. But there's a big difference between advisors who campaign and advisors who coach you on what you stand for.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is Brat spent so much time vilifying Cantor, did he even have a platform of his own? I can't believe he goes on national TV and has the gall to believe the show is tailored to selected talking points.

the owner of Homer City Station, General Electric, has plans to install additional sulfur dioxide controls, but has not yet done so......the previous owners of the plant went bankrupt.....
additional controls will be required on nitrogen oxides and carbon dioxide, at vastly higher cost....whether GE will continue with these plans in the face of the new Obama regulations is unknown.....
let's wait and see if Homer City (and its jobs) remains open.....
Funny how much you follow that from CA, eh Nobraina!! HAHAHAHAHA

But as usual, you lie. Who went bankrupt??

>>Until its construction in the 1960s by the Pennsylvania Electric Co.(PenElec) and others, much of the property was owned by the Benamati family. In 1969, generating units #1 and #2 began operation, while unit #3 began operating in 1977.[2]

In 2001, affiliates of General Electric bought the plant from Edison, and subsequently leased it back to them. In 2011, Edison International failed to secure financing to add pollution-control devices and announced plans to transfer full control of the plant to General Electric. On February 29, 2012, Edison took a $1 billion impairment charge related to the Homer City plant and several other coal-fired power plants. At the end of 2012 full control of the plant was transferred back to General Electric, which hired an NRG affiliate to operate the plant.<<

Dirty power plant in Homer City to get clean

""HOMER CITY — Three years ago, the operators of one of the nation’s dirtiest coal-fired power plants warned of “immediate and devastating” consequences from the Obama administration’s push to clean up pollution from coal.

Faced with cutting sulfur dioxide pollution blowing into downwind states by 80 percent in less than a year, lawyers for EME Homer City Generation L.P. sued the Environmental Protection Agency to block the rule, saying it would cause it grave harm and bring a painful spike in electricity bills.

None of those dire predictions came to pass. Instead, the massive Indiana County power plant is expected in a few years to turn from one of the worst polluters in the country to a model for how coal-fired power plants can slash pollution.

The story of the Homer City plant reflects the precarious position of older coal-fired plants these days, squeezed between cheap and plentiful natural gas and a string of environmental rules the Obama administration has targeted at coal, which supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s electricity. The latest regulation, the first proposal to curb earth-warming carbon dioxide from power plants, is due next week. It will pose yet another challenge to coal-fired power plants. Dozens of coal-fueled units have already announced they would close in the face of new rules.

But Homer City also shows how political and economic rhetoric sometimes doesn’t match reality. Despite claims by Republicans and industry critics that the Obama administration’s regulations will shut down coal-fired power plants, Homer City survived – partly because it bought itself time by tying up the regulation in courts. Even environmental groups that applaud each coal plant closing and protested Homer City’s pollution now say the facility is setting a benchmark for air pollution control that other coal plants should follow, even if it took decades.

“If there is a war on coal, that plant won,” said Eric Schaeffer, the executive director of the Environmental Integrity Project and a former enforcement official at EPA.

The owners of the massive western Pennsylvania power plant – which releases more sulfur dioxide than any other power plant in the U.S.– have committed to install $750 million worth of pollution control equipment by 2016 that will make deeper cuts in sulfur than the rule it once opposed.""

Are they anti-semetic? No, I don't think so. "Anti-Semitism is a hatred toward Jews—individually and as a group—attributable to the their religion."Jewish religion and/or ethnicity." Certainly, the TP's on this thread are anything but...they 'd defend Israel to the death. The Tea Party is fractured. Some have used the Holocaust to press their case and others have blamed Jews for causing our economic problems. Neither of those is supportive or against the Jewish religion.
However, "At TP rallies some protesters have carried signs comparing President Obama’s efforts to achieve health care reform with the Nazi’s pursuit of the final solution; the eradication of the Jews. Some carry signs blaming Jewish bankers for the economic crisis. Helpless victims or manipulative money lenders; these anti-Semitic stereotypes add to the already smoldering cauldron of conspiracy theories manifest in the Tea Party movement."
I think Tea Party members use God and Jews as tools of manipulation.
I don't know, they don't look like tea party to me.

Obama has even less respect for our military than the Clinton's -- and that's a fact.
