Sure. Then we can teach all the children the Hindu creation story in our science classes at our public schools...right? I mean, considering the founders of this nation made it VERY clear that one religion wouldn't be above any other, then I'm sure you'd be OK with having a Satanic prayer meeting at the start of each public school day. You know, like how the Christians did when they forced prayer in schools and added "God" to the pledge of allegiance years after it was written. OI think, since no one religion is to be held above another, the pledge should say "One nation, under Beldarr the moon god..." Fair is fair in this free and equal country...right? Ahhh ha ha ha ha! Eat it, you little lost sheep.
Canton, global warming must have you confused. The founders didn't care about what religion was paramount to another, the founders just didn't want the federal government to be propelled by any certain religion. That's all they wanted. And we on the right believe the same thing. But you see, words mean things.

See, Congress are those little critters who make laws and impose taxes. Congress is not the public school, Congress is not the judge in a court, Congress are not school teachers, Congress is not city hall. Congress is Congress.

The way our Constitution was originally written, the only people that had religious restrictions was Congress, nobody else. That's why you've never seen the clause "Separation of Church and State" anywhere in the Constitution. It doesn't exist. In fact, when the Constitution was ratified, several states had an adopted religion already.

But since the Constitution was bastardized to somehow mean Congress meant teachers and schools too, the growing trend is for parents to home school their children. There is nothing wrong with that. The Amish do it every day and have been doing it for many, many years.

As people come back home to teach their own children, the public school will shrink, and shrink, and shrink until there is nothing left of them. Who needs teachers? We have the internet. It's also my hope that eventually, some brilliant politician decides to create a law that pays those home school parents to take on other children in their neighborhood. Then parents can not only teach their children, but replace their lost income from staying home.

So bye bye union teachers and overpaid administrations, your clock is ticking. No more jobs with three month vacations.

Awwww. Your rightwing propaganda site believed Mitt when he said he didn't make money off of Stericycle. Too bad the financial records say otherwise. Just like Cheney not making any money off sending our troops off to needlessly die. Just more conniving GOP tactics.(Also see 1001 fake scandals and shutting the government down)
Really, I don't have to explain something to a guy who is too stupid to realize the only reason he is pro-life is directly due to a Christian agenda. One he claims he doesn't follow. Ever wonder what gay marriage and abortion has to do with what the GOP stands for? Here's a hint. Absolutely nothing. Now go figure out why almost every Republican you meet is pro-life and against gay marriage.

It's because this president is the only president to continually shove down the throat of uneducated Americans that it's still Bush fault. You weak feeble minded low income liberals can't see past the truth. You wouldn't dare say anything contradictory against your party. Wake up and quit being robots people. Both parties suck. If you re-elect an incumbent you are an idiot. Both parties are acting like spoiled 12 year-old girls. The liberal media is feeding you crap and the conservative media is not telling all the facts because the Liberals won't talk to them.

Yeah, that was after some public schools started to have mandatory prayers, so that (regardless of your personal beliefs) students were forced to "mouth words." Some felt that this was offensive. In two landmark decisions, Engel v. Vitale (1962) and Abington School District v. Schempp (1963), the US Supreme Court found that forcing students to pray violated the First Amendmentís Establishment Clause. Nothing in it kept students from praying. But it did prohibit school or state sponsored prayer.

The problem here is that it was not Congress that prohibited or endorsed such prayer. Congress is a federal entity while schools were a local entity. Congress has nothing to do with states or local municipalities or how those local governments run their schools.

The restrictions or permissions of local schools have nothing to do with the federal government sponsoring a religion. Again, the intent of the founders was that the federal government not sponsor or write federal laws with religion in mind.

A majority of the Supreme Court disagreed with you, and that's the opinion that counts. The Supreme Court considered the question of how the Establishment Clause applied to the states in 1947, in Everson v. Board of Education, when the court determined that the first amendment applied to the states as well as Congress.

Writing for the majority, Justice Hugo Black stated:
"The 'establishment of religion' clause of the First Amendment means at least this: Neither a state nor the Federal Government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions or prefer one religion over another. Neither can force nor influence a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion. No person can be punished for entertaining or professing religious beliefs or disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-attendance. No tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions, whatever they may be called, or whatever form they may adopt to teach or practice religion. Neither a state nor the Federal Government can, openly or secretly, participate in the affairs of any religious organizations or groups and vice versa. In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect 'a wall of separation between Church and State.'"

Sry, Not quite true. Briefly asked, why is there a Dept of Education in D.C. if they have nothing to do with local schools? I also can't see how reduced & free meals could not at least influence any school that recieves them.
That would seem a good reason for school vouchers...freedom away from the Feds!

Meanwhile, back in the REAL reality, gas prices are almost a dollar less than when GW Bush was in and it was $4.00 a gallon. Refresh my memory, little McVeigh. How long ago was that?
you lie as always.

you have no memory.

I predict the government is shut down today.

It is a scream to pick Obama's lowest price in 5 years against the highest under Bush.

Since you wait 5 years to post Obama's price, why did you forget gas under $2 under Bush?

Yeah, look at Whitehat right here in Ohio, boils down to more corporate welfare. One of Kasich's biggest donor's, for profit charter schools, paid for with taxpayers money.

Blah blah blah...I'm not even a Liberal. What you call the "Liberal" media, we call the majority of America's view. Much like how you call the smartest people in our nation, professors and scientists, commies. Go invest in a water walking Jewish zombie. The rest of us statistically proven higher IQ folks have already put your whole belief system out to pasture.

So gas wasn't $4 a gallon under Bush? No wonder you continue to be an ignorant leech of your parent's bank account.

did you notice the 20% decline in the stock market this past couple weeks?

you still holding on?

only 4000 points to go, and it won't take long.

If the debt celling does not do it, the Fed will when they stop printing play money prolonging fantasy.

what a tool you are.

under Obama gas exceeded $6 a gallon in California. It has been $3.50 for years here. And as we devalue the dollar, expect it to do nothing but go up.

Obama said he was going to escalate all fuel costs as his green intuitive.

Put as much green in Obama's pockets, along with those that elected him as possible in 8 years.
