Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

You two should get a room. It's absolutely hilarious seeing a far left loon knock public education while supporting a party that is responsible for it and jails our children (in families that cannot afford private school) in the system.

Here is a leftard knocking public education yet the Democrats stop vouchers every time they can. This is the typical conundrum of the left knocking something at the same time forcing it on others.

You far left loons really are too much!

One only needs to weed out the liberal propaganda or actually visit the area hot and talk to the people. You leftards have blinders on. This is actually much more massive than Katrina due to population density, but due to the fact Obama is president, your corrupt media covers the story differently. Sorry to confuse you, lib.
I know the extent and I know the response, I know people living in all the effected areas, so piss off.

He knows he blew it when he backed the Tea Party & the only out was to leave.
More likely, he saw that the Senate was a waste of time and took a better job. For those without significant personal wealth, the Senate is a low-paying job.

Taxes are for the little people
Posted: 11:56 PM, December 5, 2012

Do you think Al Sharpton appreciates the irony of his being invited to the White House Tuesday to talk taxes with President Obama?

That is, to talk about Obama’s plan to ram through steep tax hikes on the “rich” to resolve the fiscal-cliff crisis?

Sharpton’s all about taxes — for others.

For himself, well, maybe not so much.

As The Post’s Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein reported last year, Sharpton “owe[d] the IRS $2.6 million in income tax, and nearly $900,000 in state tax.”

And his personal pride and joy National Action Network owed more than $880,000 in unpaid federal payroll taxes, interest and penalties, Vincent and Klein found.

Which makes Obama’s decision to invite Sharpton (and several other MSNBC hosts) baffling. Why ask a man with a terminal case of tax allergies to make the case for higher rates for everybody else?

The Rev’s issues go back decades: In 1993, for example, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor tax crime to avoid two felony charges.

In the years since, the IRS has issued a dozen liens against Sharpton’s groups, including one against him for $538,652 in 2010.

Asked about all this yesterday — specifically, whether he’s gotten square with the tax man — Sharpton said simply that he has “resolved all matters.”

But his spokeswoman later refused to respond to a simple question: Has Sharpton actually paid his taxes?

Nevertheless, it’s clear that the reverend intends to preach Obama’s tax-hike gospel. After leaving the White House Tuesday, he dedicated a 12-minute segment on his MSNBC show to the need for “a tax increase on the richest in this country.”

Since Obama is targeting those who make more than $200,000 a year, the “richest” set actually includes Sharpton himself — who pulls in $240,000 annually from the National Action Network alone, and never mind his MSNBC gig.

But here’s the bottom line: Sharpton is happy to spread the gospel about “tax fairness,” but if tax law were “fair”— that is, if it were applied to him like everybody else — he’d have been out of the picture a very long time ago. It’s as simple as that.

You do your kids harm by home schooling. Many have trouble with social skills when they need them as adults to function in the workplace and society. It's ironic and hypocrisy a libtard like you did not support the Democrat/traditional liberal institution of "public" education. My stepsister did that to he kid and OMG, this kid is a zombie/misfit. You likely so no problem because you have the same problem.
Private school on the other hand can be much better. The public system, under the left in this country, like most of their policies/institutions, is a dismal failure.

Go back a read a couple pages you stupid dumbpuck rightwing loon, we have been discussing home schooling of which Homer is not a big proponent of based soley on what I have witnessed, you stupid ass. He made the point that Carol/Galt/Tenzing are an examples of public education and as they are some of the most fearful, ignorant examples Homer has ever seen he makes a good point you complete and total jackass.

There is nothing wrong with our public school system that a good parent can't solve.
How about a parent who is also a teacher, or a scientist, or an engineer, or a physician?

Many of those who home-school do so because their children are of above-average intelligence and/or achievement and are held back by schools that teach to the lowest common denominator.

If your child can already read and do basic arithmetic, why send him to first grade, wasting his time?

I have come to the conclusion that we should just get out of the way and let the democrat/progressives have their way. Let them own it all. The fastest way to fix this problem is, maybe, to just let the democrats totally crash and burn the system. Then we can pick up the pieces and rebuild the country the way it's suppose to be. Rand Paul is right. Give it to them.
