<quoted text>Yeah, you and Galt agree__ROFLMAO __two fools collide.
At the end of the day you live in a Republican controlled state where all but a couple of the county school boards are controlled by Republicans and the best you can do is yak about ghost teachers unions with little no power over policy, procedure, rules, regulations etc etc etc.
Sometimes I wonder if you actually live in Florida__and referring to the "tag agency" as the DMV also adds cause to wonder.
Been a while since I've had to go to the tag place to get a tag.

Okay if I just call it the tag place?

Anyway, my teaching days were over almost two decades ago. It doesn't matter if you live in a Republican controlled county or not. Liberals and unions - the strong arm of the Democratic Party - run the show on the education front anywhere.

Don't worry though, Obama is heading south.

What Are the Symptoms of Schizoid Personality Disorder (in addition to posts like the above)?
People with schizoid personality disorder often are reclusive, organizing their lives to avoid contact with other people. Many never marry or continue to live with their parents as adults. Other common traits of people with this disorder include the following:
They do not desire or enjoy close relationships, even with family members.
They choose solitary jobs and activities.
They take pleasure in few activities except for posting nonsensical jibberish on Topix.
They have no close friends, except first-degree relatives.
They have difficulty relating to others.
They are indifferent to praise or criticism.
They are aloof and show little emotion.
They might daydream and/or create vivid fantasies of complex inner lives.
They think Obama is an effective President.
"Laney F"
You do not think nobama is an effective president? Look how effective he was on the following;
- He effectively grew the unemployment rate
- He effectively grew the food stamp rolls by 6 million
- He effectively enabled fewer American's to pay Federal income tax
- He effectively oversaw American's household income decline by about 6%
- He effectively led the campaign to lower home values and new home starts
- He effectively okayed Fast and Furious that led to American deaths
- He effectively took a nap and let muslim terrorists murder American's in Benghazi
- He effectively pushed thru nobamakare a trillion dollar boondogle a majority of American's do not want or need
- He effectively pissed away a near trillion dollar debacle, his "stimulus" bill which provided almost nothing
No way you can say nobama has not been effective.

Only 1.1 million jobs, have to agree that is a lousy number. But lets look at president nobama, unemployment rate higher than when he was elected, most of the jobs created under nobama, government and part time.

Can anyone believe the President of the United States lied to us - on purpose!- about something as important and personal as our health care?

Just because he wants us to have what he thinks we should have?

Shocking. Absolutely shocking.

It's even worse than "read my lips"...GHW Bush's undoing.

State Sen. Ralph Northam (D-Norfolk) defeated Republican candidate E.W. Jackson in the race for Virginia Lieutenant governor Tuesday, according to projections from NBC News and the AP.

Jackson, a Baptist minister, won a surprise victory at the Virginia Republican convention in May. His long history of anti-gay remarks dominated his campaign. He also said that non-Christians were following a "false religion" and said that government programs had done more harm to African-Americans than slavery.

Jackson's comments caused trouble for Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Cuccinelli, who had to repeatedly distance himself from his remarks.

"I am just not going to defend my running mates’ statements at every turn," Cuccinelli said in an interview with the Washington Post. "They’ve got to explain those themselves. Part of this process is just letting Virginia voters get comfortable with us, on an individual basis, personally."

Northam ran an otherwise quiet campaign in comparison to Jackson's eye-popping statements.

Oooops, I forgot Cuccinelli was running against that leftist phag in Virginia. Looks like a good chance for a red sweep in all the important races tonight. That's the first nail in baruck's political coffin; just wait till the midterms...

Where are all the leftist phags saying "the tea party has the lowest ratings of anyone", as a tea party candidate probably wins in a blue state.....??:-)
