I tell my kids, "Don't get old - although it beats the alternative."

Good point, but taxes along are not sufficient.
Absent real spending cuts, balancing the current budget would require that everybody's taxes be increased by 100%.
Obama's taxes on the rich will close about 5% of the budget gap, assuming no increase in spending.
Sounds like a real plan.
lol! It's nice when you don't have to produce anything in support in your reality, eh?

Wanna know MY plan?

Congress doesn't, because Congress relies on being re-elected, rather than adhering to the Constitution.

Here's my plan:
Cut ALL spending.
Cut MOST Federal programs.( Leave the Dept. of Transportation, the Department of Commerce, The Department of Defense, and The Department of the Treasury.

That's it.
Kill the Departments of everything else.
Audit the Federal Reserve, re-instate Glass-Steagal, institute the flat tax in lieu of the IRS, kill the EPA, and make every piece of
anti-civil rights legislation invalid from this day forward.

Long live America, and long may She wave:

Minimum of a B.S. in Mathematics including courses in calculus.

Not a degree in Education.

Facts are facts. Obama's tax plan will raise about $40 billion per year versus a budget deficit of more than $1.5 trillion.

Nothing but red meat for the mob.

Seems to me, a teacher qualified to teach 'engineering' would have spent at least 6 months as an engineer........but what do I know? I didn't start teaching children until I'd given birth to and raised two American White Boys.

My bad.

I agree, I dont believe Obama's DOL unemployment numbers which they cant reflect the true unemployed in the US especially after Clinton changed the way unemployment is Calculated and that is why I didnt even believe the unemployed numbers during G.W.Bush Adminstration and unemployment was high during his adminstration which there was several unemployment extensions under Bush.

A recent Associated Press poll showed a majority of both Democrats and Republicans held anti-black feelings (55 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans) as did about half of political independents (49 percent).

Scroll down and click on "October 27: Associated Press Poll - Racial Attitudes Topline"
65% of those polled said we're on the wrong track too.
Gee. I wonder why?

Seriously doubt if even 5% of the high schools in America have a teacher "qualified to teach calculus to a future engineer."
I once read a typical syllabus for early 1800 to early 1900 American grade schools and was stunned. Those kids could run circles around today's kids in math, history, writing and reading.

Lincoln came out of it.

Today's teachers can instruct their students to use social networks and how we need to give out prizes to everyone but they are lost when it comes to teaching critical and independent thought. They are sheep leading the sheep.
