Country in debt?
I bet you believe China is holding most of our debt...
_Look at the Stock Market.... We owe most of our debt to fellow Americans
_I'd worry about not able to afford a good college education for my kids, not the national debt. As always, America will take care of itself. No other country is this world is a close second to America!
_That "National Debt" talk is a trick GOP crooks are using to block Government from investing on the people, making sure more money is made available for much more Tax breaks for the wealthy (like Mitt Romney and The Donald...)
_By hogging all the wealth, they wanna make sure your children remain slaves to big-business....
As far as no country being close to the USA.
China is set to overtake the USA in 2016. And who will History record was President when the USA falls to second place?

And as far as education goes
The USA spends more on educating its children then all but three countries.
http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/edu_spe_per...
And if Chicago or Washington DC where independent countries they would be at the top of list by a long shot.
http://schools.chicagotribune.com/
And
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/jun/...
so why are we spending about twice what Germany is spending per student in Washington DC
and about 5 times what Germany is spending in Chicago and getting worse results?
We have doubled the amount we spend per student(and thats after we factor in inflation) over the last 20 and we have nothing to show for it.
I would suggest any one really interested in this go see the documentary "Waiting for Superman". One of the best documentary I seen .

The racist roots of the democrat party's lust for 'gun control'
"Before the election Governor Scott had organized and armed the colored militia, alleging that it was necessary to protect them against violence. This action was very objectionable to the democratic party...."
"Immediately after this election, outrages commenced against the colored people by the Ku-Klux, and were committed in great numbers, through the winter and spring, in the counties of Spartanburgh, Union, York, Newberry, Chester, and Fairfield...."
"...He speaks of murders committed in York County as communicated to him by his chief; of a raid upon which he went to arrest and murder the county treasurer of York, who escaped from them ; gives the names of chiefs and members in the town of York; describes their disguise; states that it was part of their business to disarm negroes, and that their object was political—" to carry the negro for the democratic party," (pp.1303-1370.)
"...The, organization of what were called "democratic clubs"—secret societies, designed to seize the Government by violence in the event of the assurance of the election of Seymour and Blair--which clubs became afterwards the Ku-Klux of infamous notoriety for blood and cruelty..."

I will say Home Schooling does hurt public education in this way. The parents who home school their children are often the same parents , who if their children where in school, would be going to school board and PTA meetings complaining about the clog toilet in the bathrooms, the fact the History book was printed in 1953,, that the playground looks like a warzone,And when not complaining would be volunteering to help take the kids on a field trip to the Art museum, would car pool the soccer team to games etc.
Having the kids who parents are most involved with their kids leave the school might in some ways make it easier for the teachers union, but in the long run the whole school suffers.

Not quite, drooler. BOTH the federal AND state governments were prohibited from infringing. But yet both have done it. And people like >you< applaud the tyrannical usurpations. No realizing that once the guns are gone, their going to take EVERYTHING else.

And all because people like >you< have NO idea about history. That "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

So, when your 'masters' get done with the guns, they'll be turning on >you<. And >you< will be powerless to do ANYTHING about it.

Totally not true. Home-schooled children score extremely low on required standardized tests in every state in the nation. Not to mention the severely rampant social retardation that home-schooled students exhibit at disconcertedly high frequencies. The only studies you can site that demonstrate what you claim they do are done by private home-schooling companies who sell everything you need to successfully home-school.
Duh!! Sounds like you are totally ignorant about creative statistics and dumb enough to show your ignorance blatantly.

Under Obama our economy is growing at 2.2% per year at best while our debt is growing at 4.4% a year. How long can we maintian that.
And Liberals I might add would have it grow even faster if they could as there are many thing they think we should be spending money on.
Obama's Administration has been loaded with massive debt created by Bush/Cheney Administration over just 8 years

-In real life, we don't get panicky if unable to pay our Mortgage or car notes within the first couple of years after acquiring those debts

_On their way out of office, Bush/Cheney gave a huge Bailout to Big-bank, and that's on top of Tax breaks and unpaid Wars

_Our Economy is growing, so we will catch up with our debt in due time. Blaming Obama for Bush/Cheney spending binge and trying to squeeze the masses to pay-off debt earlier than expect is either cruel or Very, very Stupid....

A Short History of Democrats, Republicans, and Racism

The following are a few basic historical facts that every American should know.

Fact: The Republican Party was founded primarily to oppose slavery, and Republicans eventually abolished slavery. The Democratic Party fought them and tried to maintain and expand slavery.

Why is this indisputable fact so rarely mentioned? PBS documentaries about slavery and the Civil War barely mention it, for example. One can certainly argue that the parties have changed dramatically in 150 years, but that does not change the historical fact that it was the Democrats who supported slavery and the Republicans who opposed it. And that indisputable fact should not be airbrushed out for fear that it will tarnish the modern Democratic Party.

Had the positions of the parties been the opposite, and the Democrats had fought the Republicans to end slavery, the historical party roles would no doubt be repeated incessantly in these documentaries. Funny how that works.

Fact: During the Civil War era, the "Radical Republicans" were given that name because they wanted to not only end slavery but also to endow the freed slaves with full citizenship, equality, and rights.

Yes, that was indeed a radical idea at the time!

Fact: Lincoln's Vice President, Andrew Johnson, was a strongly pro-Union (but also pro-slavery) Democrat who had been chosen as a compromise running mate to attract Democrats. After Lincoln was assassinated, Johnson thwarted Republican efforts in Congress to recognize the civil rights of the freed slaves, and Southern Democrats continued to thwart any such efforts for nearly a century.

Fact: The Ku Klux Klan was originally and primarily an arm of the Southern Democratic Party, and its mission was to terrorize freed slaves and Republicans who sympathized with them.

Why is this fact conveniently omitted in so many popular histories and depictions of the KKK, including PBS documentaries? Had the KKK been founded by Republicans, that fact would no doubt be repeated constantly on those shows.

Fact: In the 1950s, President Eisenhower, a Republican, integrated the US military and promoted civil rights for minorities. Eisenhower pushed through the Civil Rights Act of 1957. One of Eisenhower's primary political opponents on civil rights prior to 1957 was none other than Lyndon Johnson, then the Democratic Senate Majority Leader. LBJ had voted the straight segregationist line until he changed his position and supported the 1957 Act.

Fact: The historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress. In the House, 80 percent of the Republicans and 63 percent of the Democrats voted in favor. In the Senate, 82 percent of the Republicans and 69 percent of the Democrats voted for it.

Fact: Contrary to popular misconception, the parties never "switched" on racism.

Following the epic civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the South began a major demographic shift from Democratic to Republican

....So how do you propose to make it harder for crazy or sane people to commit mass murder? Hand out questionaires? Any of this anti-gun bill will not do it, if it could pressure cookers would become illegal. You completely disregarded that the older brother was questioned since another country warned us about him. Who dropped the ball on monitoring that individual? He went to another country, got training, and came back even! BTW, don't you think the Economy would be a little better off without the flat out robbery during the years of Dubya?
