You are FOS. I have consistently stated that the Benghazi attack was a terrorist act , which by definition had to have been done by terrorist. Anyone with even half a brain would understand that.
Now I am asking WHY republikans have decided to support terrorist against the USA by blaming Americans for what terrorist did.

<quoted text>You obviously didn't comprehend my post. Four months ago WE, the conservative side on this forum, claimed it WAS a terrorist attack. The liberal side of this forum said NO IT WASN'T, it was an "act of terror"....semantics...ba sically defending the Ruler because he had already declared "an end to the war on terror" thus meaning they were no more terrorist. Now today you're saying it WAS terrorist, hence the contradiction from your side. Now was it "you" that said it "wasn't" four months ago, I don't recall but I do recall it was your side, those that defend the Ruler.
Now are you claiming the State Dept got the two incidents, Egypt & Lybia, confused with one another when they made their rounds on the Sun morning shows blaming a video?

<quoted text>Maybe, therein lies the problem. Education should be considered a privilege, not a right, entitlement, etc,,,, as it is in the many countries that kick out asses every year. Hence the difference with private schools, it IS a privilege to attend, therefor the scores, participation by students, parents, & teachers, and the overall experience is greater than govt schools.
You are exactly right!

Yes, the article was written by a teacher, as I clearly stated.
Yes, learning is the responsibility of students and their parents.
Perhaps you have heard that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. The Asian students as a group are learning and performing at high levels in the same schools that black and caucasian students as a group perform at a lower level. They have the same teachers, so what makes the difference? Its attitude, attitude, attitude. The asian parents have taught their children that learning is an investment in their own future and that failing to learn and failing to achieve damages their future prospects. The others have parents who make up excuses for their child, blaming any failure on the schools, the teacher, liberals, the boogy man, anyone but the actual persons responsible--the failing child and his parent.

<quoted text>I agree, parents involvement in their child's lives is the most important aspect, especially when concerning education, but what I got from your article was that the teachers are saying its not their fault the students aren't learning, it's the parents fault? Isn't it the teachers job to teach? Because children learn at different levels, speed, comprehension, etc..., isn't it their job to try and reach every student? New schools, free laptops, etc..., doesn't teach a child, the teacher does. I guess because I'm used to dealing with private school teachers, I'm not used to teachers passing the buck! It's safe to say this article was written by a govt school teacher!

Now that NC has republiksan control of both houses of the legislature and the governorship, what is being done to create jobs?
Well, for starters, the legislature has approved an ADDITIONAL $50,000 tax break for EVERY partner in EVERY law firm in NC. That is sure to get things moving---for lawyers. Another monumental achivement is solving the seal level rising problem by passing a law against the sea rising. There, we fixed it. Now governor McCory and speaker Thom Tillis wants to stop teaching achademic courses at UNC and replace that with welding. Next is eliminating state income taxes for corporations and businesses. To make up the shortfall, sales taxes will be raised to 8% on food, medicine, doctor visits, car sales,utility bills or anything else essential to existence ---except airplanes and yachts.

And if you truly believed your rhetoric of "once born in America" line, then why so serious about socialism?

Every has the right to try or fail. As you eloquently point out, there are no absolutes, right? If you truly believed that then there wouldn't be any need for entitlements for the "economically challenged" folk because of their inability to manage their wealthy or money because that would be considered an absolution to their survival.

See the trend? Conservatives are so dense, they cannot understand why government grows when they ask for such things.

Twice in one day. Next you will be asking to grow the military.
Growing government are your words, not mine.

Contractors, queer bait. Just like when you go take a physical for a job. Oops, I forgot. You don't have a real job. My bad, let me dumb it down for you.

When you work in the real world, they require accountability, part of that accountability is maintaining a fit workforce. No drugs and minimal health or safety risks to its personnel.

<quoted text>Yes, I compare the two, and you have yet to demonstrate why I should not.
Begining or continuation. What is the difference?
Bush failed to protect the American homeland. Three thousand civilians died due to the failure. Now you can wish to sweep that under the rug, but I will not allow it to be done.
Everytime your team brings this up, the people are reminded of the Bush failure to protect America.
This is why your team is falling apart.
If you can not see the difference in the step up in terrorists threats then and now, put you head back in the sand. Ambassador Stevens told the State Dept. of a threat, he was ignored. Stevens and his team were in a "hot zone" that was the reason he was sent there, according to the Sec. of State, in front of Congress. Yet, your "team" ignored his warnings of a threat. I don't believe an Ambassador told President Bush squat. You know Mike, it's easy for you and I to be "armchair" quarterbacks here, I try not to do it on this issue because I knew someone who died on flight 93. I know her family and they were briefed extensively on that event. I don't believe any American wants to "sweep that under the rug" as you put it.

I like a lot of conservative thought.AND, on some issues I'm more left leaning.Which is why I am sometimes targeted by both sides as a"fence straddler".Moderates are an endangered species.I respect people with different opinions than mine.I even love some of them.My best friend,a woman of enormous integrity, shares few of my political beliefs.So what?

Blaming Americans? It was your side that blamed the attacks on a YouTube video that was made by an American....do you not remember? I can provide a video to jog your memory if needed!

Bush was well versed in this use of fear mongering to control. Now build a bunker because the color coded warnings are flashing in your head.
Mike, the reason you're not taken seriously is because you can never be unbiased. You had to have read all the posts by Arnold, TSF, Allen, Waco and me about how we got whippings and Allen and I were very explicit in how whippings scared us. Why did you only respond to my post when everyone else laughed about getting whippings at home and at school, might I add, and somehow I'm the one to come out too ignorant to understand the relationship of terrorism using fear control? Hell, the rest of got a college education and don't sling beer for a living. Now why don't you crawl out of your parents' basement, take off your tinfoil hat and get into the real world. You call the Republicans the party of "no", you're the party of "bias", no different, just a different name.

Only faulting Hillary like you fault bush.
The embassy had security, in tripoli. The consulate, in Benghazi, is a tad different in mission and it is the state dept responsibility to provide security for consulates.
Who was in charge of the state dept?
Hillary Clinton.
Was there no Marine Expeditionay Unit on float in the Med, was there no carrier battle group on station in the Med, not one SEAL team or Delta platoon on stand by, ready to be deployed, for when help is called for?
Perhaps your teammates are incapable of determining what is and is not a viable threat?
was their not two different bases around NY? Was their not an entire atlantic fleet hangin around? was there not over 140 F-22 raptors that are on call 24/7 to shoot down planes? was there not an entire military force which should be constantly ready to defend America and her citizens from threats like the one of 9/11? who was the head of the country at that time of Sept 2001? o ya it was Obama.
hijacked planes are not a threat excuse me.

First it was the fact black students didn't have a "daddy" at home, now it's attitude, attitude, attitude. I can't keep up with how many excuses one can give for why our children fail before we start looking at those who educate them. The article clearly stated the children were given every tool needed that the asians I'm sure have access to and the teacher by his own admission seemed to be on top of what was going on educationally, so what's the reason: "daddy ain't here, all kids except the asians are lazy, attitude, attitude, attitude, teacher's not doing her job and my favorite is always we don't give enough money to the educational system." When we're giving at no charge to children all the necessary modern "gizmos" to enhance the learning process and they're still not learning, what's the problem in our country? I don't know TSF's age, but he seems pretty good in the math department. I bet he could take kids WITHOUT anything more than a blackboard, maybe a calculator and teach them just as well. Our education system has gotten away from the art of "teaching" and it's showing and I don't know what to do about "daddy not being home."
