Carl, I often agree with your posts but not this one. The school systems job is to prepare ourRead More children for the future. Whether that be a job or higher education. It is unfortunate that some children has test anxiety but they need to learn how to deal with it. If after completing high school they have a job at McDonald's are you going to tell McDonald's that they cannot work the lunch or dinner rush because it's to stressful on them? If they should get into a good collage are you going to tell there professors that they gets a pass on there senior thesis because they gets stressed from tests? One last thought on Education V Work will there resume state that they will not have to worry about deadlines, meetings or reports because there to stressful and demanding? What is the problem with students studying 110 hours per year for testing? People are tested everyday at work, in fact work could be considered a test of knowledge and how to use that knowledge all day everyday.

Pressure should not be placed on students because the adults at the school require that the childrenRead More need better test scores. These tests used to be about measuring a student's progress so that their education could be customized. We have moved past that point and it needs to be returned. The 110 hours are wasted when the learning process is moved from processing information to how to do well on a test.

Weddings aren't cheap. What can a to-be-married couple do with that $20K? They can use it for a downRead More payment on a house. Kick start their retirement savings. Start saving for their kids' college educations. Buy cars. Repair the house. Boost their Emergency Fund. OR, They can have a four hour party.

I would be more understanding of such a huge outlay of money if people actually stayed married, butRead More alas, people don't anymore. It really is just a four hour party. Look at all the time and resources squandered.

Libertarian: US schooling has always ignored the rest of the world and taught Americans little orRead More nothing about it. It is even worse now that corporate interests have taken over our public university system. It unfortunately falls upon each American to educate himself/herself. In the meantime, we are rightly known as 'ugly Americans."

Anyone who is aggressive towards another who they think is more powerful then they are, must knowRead More that the aggression will provoke a response to eliminate the source of the attack. Hence, if the source of the aggression comes from a location where children are hurt, then one can only conclude that the aggressor's plans included hurt children. Hurt children being part of the aggressors design must therefore be for the purpose of fostering rage. The hope of rage is to provoke action. The action hoped for in this case would be to instigate bargaining power in negotiations. But, make no mistake there was a decision made to harm children. It took both sides working in tandem to harm those children! The Israelis did not harm those children alone the people who chose the locations from which to attack are equally as guilty for every child's death. I for one am so fed up with child killers that I would have no problem what so ever with pulling all influence and support from the region. Drill baby drill in the US and letting the Middle East figure it out themselves. What happened in the past is done. Move forward already. What do you think the US would do If the Sioux Nation started sending Missiles into Billings claiming their land was stollen from them and they want to negotiate to get some of it back? How many seconds do you think that would be tolerated before every last perp was incarcerated or executed? Sure I feel bad for everyone who was on the wrong side of history. But once the rule book is changed you can't go back and say I really won that game give me the trophy. Life doesn't work that way.

If you are interested in a fascinating, highly nuanced and heart felt account of the history of Israel, including a passionate discussion regarding both the necessity of the Jewish state as well as the necessity of a state for the Palestinian people if Israel is to survive at all, I highly recommend Israeli journalist Ari Shavit's book, "My Promised Land." ---------------- Another interesting discussion can be found in this blog post (the blogger always appears to ramble in the beginning, but when he gets to the heart of the issue you understand the relevance of his apparent rambling): ------------------- http://justabovesunset.wordpress.com/2014/07/24/crazy-for-israel/

When debating domestic policy it's possible to be aware of most of the moving parts and how theyRead More affect a given strategy. The ACA was widely panned while it was being written because most of the numbers were available and the numbers didn't add up. .Foreign policy is different. The president and his support staff in theory have access to information that simply isn't available to the rest of us. The president gets a lot of leeway because we are forced to trust that he has better sources than we do, and therefore, while some of his policies may make little sense to the public, there may be valid reasons for those policies. .Donald's example of claiming that a policy was necesary due to a "humanitarian crisis" doesn't inspire any confidence that the president knows more that he can't divulge, rather that he may have made the decision because there's a benefit in it for him or his party. .A great example is the situation in Afghanistan. I've always been against our involvement there, and I'm ecstatic that we're trying to get disentangled from that particular slice of hell, but I've not been able to find one credible source who agrees that it was a good idea to tell the world when we were getting out. Politically it was a nice move, on the face of it not so great for our troops or allies. .There are simply too many areas where the man that we are forced to trust to know better than the rest of us simply appears to be floundering.

It's a dilemma...we generally admire bold leaders who promise action and results. Obama isRead More certainly getting more cautious in promising either of those things. Perhaps he is floundering. In the current hot spots, the potential downside to any action is so much greater than the potential upside. I think he just doesn't want to make any big mistakes - and maybe that's causing him to make more little ones. I don't sense that Obama is trying to score political points with his current foreign policy. He just doesn't know any good answers.
