Look at these patriotic wealthy Americans doing their part. Did I say patriotic? I meant treasonous leeches, riding on the backs of the working man. Time to pay the piper...and those long overdue taxes.
Look, I am close to the poverty level myself.
But as far as your post & link go, What is wrong with protecting ones EARNED wealth from an bloodsucking bunch of redistributing, politicians & money sucking welfare under achieving louts?
I am NOT talking about basic welfare assistance programs, I have had food stamps myself a time or two, I am talking about those that do not work because they find it easier & more profitable to consume the tax dollars of others.
I do NOT want someone to profit off of my taxes. I still have a CRT TV & NO video game systems when welfare recipients have Play Stations/X-Boxes or whatever & a library of games on a HDTV! Whats with that?
People with SNAP eat better & more expensively than I do! What's with that?
Many people (not all) with Med cards & section 8 housing drive newer & fancier cars than I do. What's with that?
That's 3 out of 3. I guess that I just don't know how to play the system.
I have self esteem & pride & personal drive as compared to being a lazy a$$, tax sucking underachiever & I resent non-needy low lifes being supported by folks like myself.

I think his theory is that if you restrict cup size, people will just buy more product by purchasing two smaller drinks that add up to a larger one that is restricted. Okay, let's go with that. Customers will buy several smaller drinks consuming more product than if they just purchased one larger cup. If so, then what was the point of the law anyway?
Duke is often spot on but I responded to his post that happened to be about soft drink COMPANIES not end sellers & I thought that he missed that perspective. Hell, I miss some now & then too so there was no meaness meant in my reply to Duke. Just a little clarification

Well he has been hiding for a while. We've had one of the coldest March's since they began keeping records. But Global Warming is supposed to start next week so I think he will be feeling better now.

its about taking money from people who don't have it. I remember teachers in my school had the nerve to bitch to kids who's parents make less than they do about what they make for working 9 months out of a year. The thing is if people don't have the money, maybe its stupid to ask, then again that's not the logic 2day. Just look at the real debt. http://pro.stansberryresearch.com/1303EOASALY...

Get rid of the unions and that will straighten out most of the problems with our public servants. The thing is teaching is one of the greatest jobs to have and that's why there are way more teachers than there are jobs. Everybody wants to be a teacher.

In a non-union atmosphere, the teachers would cry for more money and benefits and the school would tell them that if you don't like it, leave. That's what goes on in the public sector every day. You don't like it here, then we'll find somebody that will be more than happy to take your place.

While people are losing jobs and the family income is shrinking, these teachers want only more. Unions have no place in the public sector.

I had maybe 4 good teachers in public schools. Really half of them just put notes up on an overhead projector that we all copied, they sat at their desk and graded a few papers, bs with another teacher for half the period, and give a couple of quizzes and one test a week. Some of them would even make fun of children with poor performance, when that's usually their fault. Big children themselves, I imagine ill be hearing a reply from one.

"Since the early 1990s, the number of teachers leaving the profession has been greater than the teachers entering the profession by an ever increasing number. This is an alarming trend that affects all grade levels, but is especially apparent in secondary schools."

K-5 teacher overload: Too many trained, not enough jobs

The nation is training twice as many K-5 elementary school teachers as needed each year, while teacher shortages remain in the content specific areas of math, science and special education.

Illinois trained roughly 10 teachers for every one position available, according to an estimate by the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ), a Washington based research and policy group.

In New York, about 6,500 childhood education specialists were trained in 2010 to fill the projected demand of 2,800 in 2011, according to the state's education department and labor bureau.

Public elementary schools in Cherry Hill, N.J., average 400 to 600 applicants for one full-time position; the numbers are up to 400 for work as a long-term substitute, said George Guy, the principal for A. Russell Knight Elementary School.

I don't blame some teachers for leaving depending on the school district & their regulations.
Too many lawyers, laws, public school boards & parents are watering down discipline, dress codes, & some times even curriculum.

The main problem with parents is they don't get involved enough. A friend of mine is a school teacher, and he told me that when they break up fights in the hallway, if a student hits him, he's not allowed to hit him back. All he can do is block the punches. He's not even allowed to wrestle the kid to the ground.

Now we had fights in the hallway in my day, but if you struck a teacher, you are going to feel it for a long time. When the teacher yelled "BREAK IT UP" you threw your last punch for the day.

At a time when a lot of americans are taking pay cuts, or cuts in working hours in an hourly wage job, they should be happy to still be able to pay bills. I do think they should make top salary a lot faster than they do ( if they are worth it) because you need that money more when you're paying for college loans.

I tell young people this all the time: The day that child is born, start a college fund at the bank for him or her. If for some reason they don't want to go to college, then they can use that money for a down payment on a house or something.

Teachers & counselors 7 most principals appreciated my involvement with my sons & the fact that I was a single custodial parent/dad.
I got understanding, cooperation & good information in return. It does work.
1 son is a fine mechanic, 1 has been in the Navy for nearly 10 yrs now & 1 is going to college working towards a Phd.
It wasn't easy being out numbered by 3 rambunctious boys, there was no one to to teach me or classes to go to. I was a work in progress myself...still am really.
