And like a little liberal, he complained even though his answer was technically wrong.

They must indoctrinate them really young in CT.

Truth hurts, doesn't it?

Yeah, I'm real familiar with Newton, CT. You think excuses the whining?

How about this..... more people murdered in Chicago so far this year than Americans killed in Afghanistan. Why aren't you complaining about that?

Johnny Reb? I probably have more time in Illinois than you.

Oh, by the way, you're an idiot.

What an incredibly stupid and uncalled for comment to make about a 12-year old. I'm assuming your post was more about showing people how politically savvy you are than anything else. I bet your chest just swelled with pride when you hit the enter button, didn't it?

Obviously you came up in the public school systems.

If you think kids aren't indoctrinated by age twelve it is you that is incredibly stupid.

If, as Topix shows, you are in Bloomington, I'm all to well acquainted with how people there think, or don't.

You people put Obama in 3 different offices and elected a couple of governors to two terms, one in the state house and one in the Big House. You have no political savvy whatsoever. How could you recognize it in anyone else?

Why, yes... yes, I did come up in the public school system - the entire time we were moving from one place to another while my father served in the USAF. I take it you were privately schooled?

Was I "indoctrinated" by the time I was twelve? No, I was not. I was interested in a lot of things at that young age, but politics sure weren't one of them. What specifically were YOU indoctrinated in at age 12?

What "you" people are you referring to? I didn't vote for Obama the first or second time he was elected, and have never voted for governor of Illinois as I'm not a citizen of this state. And while you may be "well aware" (mind reader, are you?) of how people in Bloomington think, you have no clue as to how I think. I've lived in Bloomington for 6 months, and I'll be returning to Alabama within a couple of more months. How do we think in Alabama? I'm sure as a privately-schooled, non-indoctrinated, politically-savvy mind reader, you know how everyone thinks... eh?

The report about young people today who can not read or write cursive was sad enough. This is icing on the ignorance cake.
