You may want to make a side trip to California to apologise for the devastating results of trusting Calif. Democrat pols to be worthy of the Democrat Party. Comrade Pelosi is just the tip of the iceberg in the EVIL EMPIRE that is today's psydo Democrat controlled California.

The Community Organizer is the main man of ACORN.
We must defeat him forever and keep America free.
We must expell all jihadis from Congress and Senate.
Mcain is part of the Plan to elect Obama. That's why McCain gushes praise for Obama.
McCain can't talk, can't move, and is old and confused but He gushes praise for Obama, in short he is the perfect opponent for Muslim Obama.
That's why Romney was pushed aside twice!!
I hope now you can see it clearly and realize the Pelosi plan is working for the Muslims and will destroy America forever.
Only Patriotic Americans can stop the Obama fraud and expose the Pelosi plan to elect Obama.

OBAMA IS ACORN, ACORN IS OBAMA= VOTING FRAUD!!
THAT'S HOW OBAMA GOT ELECTED TO THE ILLINOIS SENATE.

We must fight now or else we will be butchered at the hands of Muslims later.
Now is the time.

Where do you get this information? Please cite your source. What are you comparing anyway...test scores, drop out rates, funding? What exactly are you saying?

The Teacher’s Union, which fails our children at schools in New York City where about fifty percent failed to pass the minimum requirement, is a partisan radical liberal organization that uses the hard working American money to promote Marxism and homosexual sex education in kindergartens.
Randi Weingarten is taking advantage of the fact that American children must use the public schools even if they cant strand their degraded performance. Randi Weingarten excels in sucking tons of money from the American taxpayer while delivering very little educational results now wants to use her monopoly to force hr political Marxist anti-American candidate to power using the taxpayer money.
Clearly, Shameless radical liberal teachers who use their job to brainwash our young children with socialistic Marxist Russian agenda and ‘blame it all on America’ hatred ruining the freedom of the American people from within.
It is time for the American people to demand their rights to avoid the brainwashing of our children by the corrupt Marxist America hating teachers and their demand rights to private schools paid by vouchers, independent of the corrupt socialistic partisan rule of Randi Weingarten.

Well said and true. The American people must stand up to the corrupt Kenyan native Marxist Muslim Barack Ahmadinajad Obama who used the Acorn underground organization to blackmail bans and bankers forcing then to give hundreds of million dollars in bad loans that were stolen from the American people pockets through the Dems' ruled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
It is time for President Bush who failed the American people allowing the Dems to steal our money with the FBI to bring to court the corrupt radical liberal Dems Bernie Frank, Jim Johnson, Chris Dodd, Barack Obama, and Pelosi.
These liberal Marxist crooks conspired against the American people more than five years to steal more than two trillion dollars from the American people as bad loans ‘for the poor’ with kickbacks to the radical liberal Dems causing the destruction of US economy.

There are two kinds of people. Those who take away rights and those who dont care either way.

The rest are Democrats. Go figure.

Reminds me of the little boy that wore an anti-Obama t-shirt to school, because his daddy encouraged it. The Republicans argued that was the child's right to free speech. How come it's always free speech when it involves a Republican, and it's horrible when it involves a Democrat? Hypocrites.

I believe that we should be educating students not indoctrinating them. If politics, is discussed it should only be to evaluate and discuss policies or philosophies with pros and cons of each...and with NO PERSONAL AND BIASED OPINON offered. Wearing buttons promotes OBAMA and his Socialist and Radical Agenda to students not affording them the opportunity to make their own decisions. If I were a parent I would be ANGRY that teachers were influencing my children. And let me say that I know parents were this is the exact case. IT IS NOT RIGHT!

Isn't any different than if you have an Obama sticker on your car, you can't park in somebodys' Florida parking lot. Oh, dear, that's right, that's not a school, but a mere parking lot. Oh yeah, but involves a Democrat, not a classroom. Sure. Republican hypocrites all.

As an ex-republican supporter I'm apalled at Palin's action!

I will rally the people and drive them to the polls myself! My group and I who are known as EX-REPUBLICANS will venture to these so-called swing states and get the word out! I'm calling for the help of the Independents and aggravated REPUBLICANS! My grandfather was a REPUBLICAN and he place me as heir to the family estate which is worth a great deal of money.......So since his passing I have made changes.

1st - He was part of a GOP that had values! however I have suspended the funds to the GOP and switch the funds to go to support the Democratic National Party! If it means spending up my inheritance then I WILL DO IT! It is my money that has been given to me and I will make GOOD USE OF IT by supporting the Democratic National Party

It is a Dept. of Education policy that teachers remain politically neutral in school. Just like students have to follow school board guidelines, teachers do also. For them to do otherwise is a very bad example to their students.

I am now going to vote for obama at this point thats my offical decison.You do have to put pressure on your canidate you want the best man for the job right?So if you just let them get away with anything and ignore there flaws your not doing the right thing for your country.Mccain isnt a bad guy and after looking at what he might do I wouldnt be upset if he won the election he is a major upgrade over George Bush.Either way is good to me I just want the country back in the right direction and I hope Obama can do that.If he cant than after 4 years put someone else in the white house thats what I say.
