Steak of Failure? Wonder if "DumBama" knows how to spell?

Strange how not too long ago, the Republicans were trying to loosen up the child labor laws. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the voucher system making it so poor kids can't afford an education. I'm sure that the right wasn't trying to force America into a 3rd world nation by making uneducated children work for next to nothing in their factories. Next they'll be telling us that the private owned prisons are actually low paying factories, making millions in profits off of prison labor, while trying to fill the prisons with every poor American that blinks funny.
It would be funnier if it wasn't true.
Really now? Who was it that fought against the school voucher system and even took it to court? It wasn't the Republicans. Still don't know? I'll give you a hint: they have a lot of friends in the teachers unions.

What's wrong with children getting a job and earning some extra money? We did it when I was a kid. We had paper routes and work-study programs where children could work at the schools and various other places to earn a paycheck. Nothing wrong with that. Of course, we didn't have liberals back then. Liberals don't want to see poor kids learn how to make money, they want to see poor kids learn how to rob and steal and eventually end up in prison or getting gunned down by the police. That's the liberal solution.

Obama budget would end DC school vouchers
February 14, 2012

BEN NUCKOLS
WASHINGTON (AP)— President Barack Obama's budget proposal includes no new funding for a private school voucher program for District of Columbia students.

The nation's capital is the only jurisdiction where federal tax dollars are used to subsidize private-school tuition. Needy students can receive up to $12,000 a year to attend private schools of their choice.

At the Obama administration's urging, Congress agreed in 2009 to phase out the program. But it was revived last year as part of a budget deal with House Republicans.

House Speaker John Boehner says in a statement that the voucher program "has an excellent track record of success." He says he'll stand alongside advocates who speak out about the need to reinstate it.

Students already participating in the program would be allowed to continue under the proposal.

Ummmmm. I am against the voucher system, as it is a Conservative ploy to make themselves millions. Thanks though for proving my point. You are barking up the wrong tree and once again proving how much smarter a truck driver is than the President of the United States. Funny how poor kids going to prison to work in factories for next to nothing makes Republicans huge money and you call it a "Liberal" ploy. There's dumb, and then there's TruckDumba

Wonder why they teach creationism in science class and that there is no such thing as climate change in the K12 "public" school system? I'm sure it has nothing to do with rightwing Christian Conservatives pulling their kids in record numbers from the public school systems? I'm sure that the global warming thing has nothing to do with the propaganda of rightwing Conservative Christian oil agendas. Like the one the founders of K12 follow. Seems "public", don't it? Do your homework before you open your ignorant truck driving mouth. Rightwing Christian Conservatives (Tea Party) are nothing short of a doomsday oil cult and are the biggest threat to America ever known.

Liberals and Democrat socialist commies aren't independently 'smart' enough to make it on their own. That's why they have to be led by their union masters.

They have no facts to support their emotionally based arguments.

Here is there mantra in a nutshell:

- Avoid debating the facts
- change the subject
- blame the opposition
- pull the race card

rinse and repeat ...

Yes, leave it to those Republicans to promote a better education for those poor minority children that the Democrats want to keep dumb and out of the mainstream. After all, they are doing terribly in public schools and many of them are dropouts. But why should the Democrats care? They don't vote--union teachers do.

Thanks for sharing the woes of the corporate struggle. You are just a truck driving ball of ignorance and propaganda. None of the tea party email newsletter crap you keep parroting has the slightest thing to do with you. Admit it. It's because he's black. Just say it. We all know it's the only real complaint you have with the president. You aren't fooling anyone. Now, let's have a look at how much the CEOs of these companies you carry the cross for have made in bonuses in one year. Ooopsie. Little truck driving weather man is living in a fantasy world and is too stupid to realize who he is jumping through hoops for. Sure, Mitt was a man of the people...
And DumBama is the man of Communists.

Why would you care what a company pays it's employees? How does that effect you? If they made less, you think that you would make more somehow?

Let's talk about other high incomes that do effect you. Do you go to the movies? How can you afford to take your family to those expensive movies where the actors and actresses get paid millions of dollars? Do you go to football or baseball games? You do know what you're looking at when you gaze down at the field, don't you? You're looking at a bunch of multi-millionairs playing games. Well...... maybe you don't watch sports. That's fine. That is unless you buy products that advertise on sports shows or in arenas. Yes, that cost of your shoes or sinus medication you take has an intrinsic cost to pay those sports heros millions more on top of what they make. Ever see a famous band or buy one of their CD's? Do you know how many millions recording companies make every year and how much those musicians are worth?

Oh, but that's right. You're a liberal so those people don't count. They earned every dollar they have in their pockets, and you're willing to pay the price for it.

Oh my. If Independent Look says something, we had better pay strict attention.

But I disagree. I'll use reporting from the right-wing USA Today to discuss the failure of school vouchers:

In Washington, D.C., a 2010 study by the U.S. Department of Education found that there was a 21 percentage point gap between the graduation rates of those in the voucher program (graduation rate: 91%) and those who had applied, but had failed to win the placement lottery (70%). A study released late last month by the University of Arkansas’ School Choice Demonstration Project showed a similar pattern in Milwaukee, with those using vouchers in the 9th grade graduating at a rate (77%) eight percentage points higher than their peers in public schools (69%).

Both the Washington, D.C. and Milwaukee voucher programs serve low-income students, for whom educational success is not the norm. According to Teach for America, an organization that recruits recent college graduates to teach at failing public schools, only half of low-income students graduate high school by age 18.

Not quite right Duke. One aspect is that soft drink companies sell a lot of fountain syrup which cost X dollars per container to 7/11 or a mom & pop 'super slurp' or where ever. IF people do respond by buying 16 ouncers instead of 32 ouncers, less syrup will be sold. 7/11 or any other fountain drink outlet may make more money since there is a better mark-up on a 16 oz drink compared to a 32 oz drink but Coke or Pepsi or Royal Crown is all but promised to earn less.
That will affect stock prices & retirement plans.

One of the problems with our economy is that DumBama and the Democrats are anti-business. A few years back, DumBama's henchmen attacked the Gibson Guitar company because they were using a certain wood to make their products not inline with federal government (environmental) standards.
The Gibson CEO's made the threat of moving their business out of the US. Mind you, Martin Guitars used the same type of wood, but they supported the Democrat party and causes. Gibson's people value conservatism.
How can the economy bounce back with the most anti-business administration in our lifetime? Gibson Guitars, the attack on American Indians for selling cigarettes via US mail, closing down roll-your-own smoke shops, the attack on Boeing., businesses that closed down because of Gulf oil drilling, the attack on electric companies that use coal to produce their product, Commie Care, taxes on medical equipment manufacturers, sun tan salons, American auto dealerships, banks that used to make student loans???????
The list goes on and on. And yet, the dolts that elected this moron blame our economic woes on Bush and the Republican Congress. Go figure.

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?

Government now tells us what to eat, what to smoke, where to smoke, what condiments we are allowed to have, what restaurants are allowed to serve us. Heck, what's left for us to choose from?

Freedom is choice. The more choices you have, the more freedom you have. Liberals think freedom stems from a liberal cradle to grave government supposedly looking out for our best interest.
