Here is who the NO information voters elected.
Cynthia Dunbar does not have a high regard for her local schools. She has called them unconstitutional, tyrannical and tools of perversion. The conservative Texas lawyer has even likened sending children to her state's schools to "throwing them in to the enemy's flames". Her hostility runs so deep that she educated her own offspring at home and at private Christian establishments.
Now Dunbar is on the brink of fulfilling a promise to change all that, or at least point Texas schools toward salvation. She is one of a clutch of Christian evangelists and social conservatives who have grasped control of the state's education board. This week they are expected to force through a new curriculum that is likely to shift what millions of American schoolchildren far beyond Texas learn about their history.
Several changes include sidelining Thomas Jefferson, who favoured separation of church and state, while introducing a new focus on the "significant contributions" of pro-slavery Confederate leaders during the civil war.
The new curriculum asserts that "the right to keep and bear arms" is an important element of a democratic society. Study of Sir Isaac Newton is dropped in favour of examining scientific advances through military technology.
There is also a suggestion that the anti-communist witch-hunt by Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s may have been justified.
The education board has dropped references to the slave trade in favour of calling it the more innocuous "Atlantic triangular trade", and recasts the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as driven by Islamic fundamentalism.
Dunbar backed amendments to the curriculum that portray the free enterprise system (there is no mention of capitalism, deemed to be a tainted word) as a cornerstone of liberty and argue that the government should have a minimal role in the economy.
One amendment requires that students be taught that economic prosperity requires "minimal government intrusion and taxation".
Another nutjob teabagger changing history.
Poor teabagger.
Did you have a point in your novel? No where in the constitution does it say that the government can forbid religious actions withing or on government owned land. It does state however that there can not be any established state religion.

It's called Reaganomics.

Obama hasn't broken, the broken cycle of Reaganomics, which has never worked and resulted in the worst depression since 1929.

It didn't work in 1929 and hasn't worked since but teabaggers want to put the same policies on steroids.

Insanity is what it's called and teabaggers fill the bill nicely.

The John Birch Society and the Tea Party are both cut from the same far right cloth. The Birchers are trying to remain a factor by attending Tea Party events.
Both groups preach the same paranoid gospel. Both are supported by the Koch brothers and other extreme right groups. Both are terrified that their precious white European heritage is under threat, as reflected in their shared racism and overall bigotry, while exploiting terms like patriotism, the American flag, and the Bible for their warped purposes.

Both the Birchers and the Teabaggers are fighting against an imaginary U.S. takeover by communists and socialists. In fact, Robert Welch, founder of the John Birch Society, was insane enough to believe that President Eisenhower was secretly a member of the Communist Party.

Reaganomics has ALWAYS been trickle down poverty.

Privatize the profits.

Socialize the losses.

Food prices? Thanks Monsanto.

Gas prices?

Measured in dollars, the nation is on pace this year to ship more gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel than any other single export, according to U.S. Census data going back to 1990. It will also be the first year in more than 60 that America has been a net exporter of these fuels.

Now teabaggers want to export LNG.

Thanks, energy companies.

Your liberal talking point is typical bs from the left. Corporate porfit traslates into production and jobs. As is proved to day by Obama's tax greed, when corporation are cutting jobs and production, it also cuts tax base, jobs and raised our debt due to less revenue.

Reaganomics Vs. Obamanomics: Fallacies Offered By The Left

Peter Ferrara, Contributor
I cover public policy, particularly concerning economics.

From watching and participating in debates over the years regarding Reaganomics, patterns of logical fallacies and factual errors repeatedly arise among critics on the Left. As the troublesome facts demonstrating the failures of Obamanomics accumulate, we find that almost religiously minded supporters of President Barack Obama canít deal with those facts, and exhibit analogous logical fallacies.

In addition, marginal tax rates do not just affect the incentives of those to which the rates currently apply. They also affect those to which the rates may apply in the future. For example, consider a small business owner. If he invests more capital in the business to expand production, or hires more workers to increase output, that may result in higher net taxable income. It is the tax rate at that higher income level, not at his current income level, that will determine whether he undertakes the capital investment, or hires more workers.
These are the reasons why the dramatic reductions in tax rates under President Reagan were the central factor in creating the dramatic turnaround in the economy that grew into the astounding, historic, 25-year Reagan boom, though the change in monetary policy was critical as well.

OBAMANOMICS

The tax rate, particularly the marginal tax rate, which is the tax rate that applies to the last dollar earned, determines how much the producer is allowed to keep out of what he or she produces. For example, at a 25% tax rate, the producer keeps three-fourths of his production. If that rate is increased to 50%, the producer keeps only half of what he produces, reducing his reward for production and output by one-third. Incentives are consequently slashed for productive activity, such as savings, investment, work, business expansion, business creation, job creation, and entrepreneurship. The result is fewer jobs, lower wages, and slower economic growth, or even economic downturn.
