Romney will win over this radical Obama
that sounds like Romney in Massachusetts where he used tax payers money to pay for cost associated with free vehicles given to Welfare recipients.

It's really going to get much worse between now and Nov. 6th. The dems have pulled out all the stops on debasing themselves and their water carrying media to defeat Romney.
Everyone keeps asking why Obama, at the debate, didn't bring up the hidden camera remark Romeny made that he would never get the 47% hard core Obama supporters to vote for him.
To me it's so obvious.
The tape of Obama speaking before an all African American audience in 2007 had just broke a few days before. In it, he basically said he did not care about the other 86% of the country. Only the blacks.
And while he stood there before them,stirring hatred ,in his southern draw and new negro cadence saying, "Where are y'all's Stafford Dollars?" HE had already voted AGAINST Stafford relief for Katerina.
And they did get it and more. More than any other natural disaster in US history.
So, no, I don't think he'll bring up the 47% in a debate ever.
How can these idiots not no that the 47% are the Welfare people and poor who do not pay federal income tax? Romney is right, they are not gonna vote for him, he wants to give them jobs and Obama wants them to be Government dependent.

Really?

This is what DirtbagRomney did. He morphed back into a Masschusetts LIBERAL.

Uh oh. This is what KochTeaBaggers are supporting?

This is what RomneyMassachusettsLIBERAL looks like:

- PROCHOICE and Pro Planned Parenthood, heck he even gave money to PP.

"

If you don’t want to read the long version of Romney’s record, I’ll give you the short version. In 1993, when he was preparing to run for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, he took a poll. The poll told him he’d lose unless he was pro-choice. So he ran as a pro-choicer. In fact, he used the poll to persuade leaders of the Mormon Church that he had to run as a pro-choicer. Then, six years later, when he was living in Utah (a pro-life state) and thinking about running for office there, he repositioned himself as a pro-lifer. Then, when the governorship of Massachusetts opened up in 2002, he repositioned himself as a pro-choicer. Then, as he prepared to seek the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, he repositioned himself as a pro-lifer. At every turn, he has taken the position that looked safest politically.

Romney does think abortion is wrong. There’s a long record of him expressing that view. But he doesn’t think every fetus has a right to life. He’s a cultural pro-lifer. He shares the Mormon hierarchy’s view that society should generally have fewer abortions because abortion is “like unto” killing, not identical to it. That’s why, like church leaders, Romney supports exceptions for rape or incest. In past incarnations, he has even endorsed the church’s moral exception for “severe birth abnormality.”

<quoted text>there is problems for sure with the Public Education System and there is no standard for educations and is different from state to state which is one problem besides each states educational standards & requirement are different totally.
If you ask me, the problem with our public education system is unions and government. Private or religious schools are not required to keep any student. If you don't pull your weight, the school kicks you out. We didn't have school boards when I was a kid. Nor did we have unionized teachers. If we had a bad teacher, the school gave him or her the pink slip, and there was nothing they could do but find another job.

We didn't have lockers. We had a box in our seat where we kept our books and belongings. Each classroom had a coat room where everybody changed from their boots to their shoes in the winter and hooks to hang up your coat. We didn't have school lunch because there was no cafeteria. Your parents made you lunch or you didn't eat. Needless to say there were no vending machines either. We ate lunch at the same place we studied--our desks.

When the school needed more funds to operate, they would ask parishioners for extra contributions. They would have bake sales and rummage sales. We went house to house and sold cookies. We didn't have a principal, vice principal, three different counselors. We didn't have a school administration. We had Sister Dennis. Sister Dennis ran the entire school.

If you ask me, the problem with people who complain about the problems facing public education systems is that they are completely uninformed, and probably have not set foot in a public school in thirty years, if ever. Everything they think they "know" about public education, they have gathered from secondary sources that promote agendas intent upon scapegoating teachers, and busting teachers unions.

In Ohio, where public education has been guaranteed to every single child resident of the state by the Ohio Constitution since 1851, school boards have existed since 1825.

http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/entry.php...

http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/constituti...

The local boards have been charged with the responsibility of hiring administrators to operate the local schools for almost two hundred years now.

National teachers' unions have existed in America since 1857.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Educati...

I personally remember eating lunch in my high school cafeteria quite often in the mid-late 1970's, and so did my older siblings when they attended during the previous ten years. The High School building was built in the mid 1960's We had lockers when I went to Junior High School. That building was the old high school, built in the early 1900's.

I really am always amazed at the crap certain people post as their version of "truth".

Makes me think that perhaps, they missed out on the fine public education that my ancestors assured would be provided for me and my siblings.

My point (that you obviously missed) is that we don't need all those public school perks to teach children. Kids learn at home today for crying out loud, and they do just as well as public school students.

Ever watch Spanky and Our Gang on television? That's what school was meant to be like back in the late 1800's. It shouldn't be that much different now. School administrators now make six digit figures. WTF does it take to run a school anyhow?

When I was in school, we had 43 students in that one classroom. That's right, we only had one classroom for each group of students. One teacher taught everything, and I would stand up those students to any public educated kids any day of the week. Many of them were nuns that had no advanced education. They did just fine.

A friend of mine used to drive a school bus. He quit because of all the ups and downs with tax levies that caused him to be unemployed at times. He told me that he couldn't wait for football season because he cleaned up on overtime. WTF are we paying for a bus, a bus driver, the coach and fuel to have kids play football on the taxpayer dime? You want your kid to play football? Then drive him to the games yourself. I'm sick of paying for all this crap.

Even if that were the case and we both know it isn't. The vote of blacks and Hispanics would not be enough to earn him the win just as it wouldn't have been possible in 2008.

If you don't know WTF it takes to run a school right now, why don't you start getting involved and find out?

If you think public education should look like Spanky and the Gang, or that the majority of parents are equipped to adequately educate their own children at home, you are seriously mistaken,

Your last sentence pretty much sums it up.

You don't want to pay the costs of what the Ohio Constitution says you must. Here's your easiest solution:

Move.

If you don't like what we spend on defense, then you move.

Schools should be bare necessities. While it may not look like Spanky and Our Gang, we don't need school gymnasiums, school busses, school bus drivers, football teams, football stadiums, field trips, college overeducated teachers to teach ABC's or unions.

The problem with public money is that it's free money. You don't spend your own money like you do free money.

I know the Teachers unions are part of the problem protecting teachers just because of senority and not by results.

I don't know about that. What I do know is that defense spending is closer to the Constitution than some of the amenities that come along with schools. Defense spending is hardly in our grasp because who here knows exactly what they are spending on? Sure, you can read an article here or there, but who was it written by and what political persuasion do they have?

Like most here, I know several people who were in the military and the last concern of theirs was wasteful spending. This is the strongest military in the world and it costs money to keep it that way. Besides, defense spending adds jobs to some degree.
