I think the difference is that the Clintons knew it was inappropriate. I don't think the ObamitesRead More even understand. I hope history will come to the right conclusion, that the damage done in the TARP bailouts was far worse than the benefits. This sort of thing does go way back, but it needs to stop.

That's the astonishing part, that their depth of expertise, even amongst their insiders, is soRead More shallow that they might not know.

Once you breach the wall and allow for agenda to trump principle, almost anything is possible - andRead More permissible. Re-establishing principle always seems horribly unfair, but the alternative is continuing, and worsening chaos.

The dilemma for education is created because the right to speak freely about religion has beenRead More largely changed through misinterpretations of the Constitution and other founding documents that established the intent rooted in the hearts of its authors and contractual subscribers. It is an example of the dangers that are created with interpretations being in flux based on the leanings of men appointed for life terms by partisan presidents. If they don't get it right, as they have not, the very subjects you taught are influenced and the world changes accordingly.

As life expectancies grow, the amount of influence each Supreme Court Judge wields, and thereforeRead More each President that appoints them, grows commensurately. It also means the patience and tolerance of those who are subject to the justices influence must grow or some alternative release must be contrived. If not, the pressure might build like never before in history or in the Founder's imaginations.

It would seem to me, and I know this will draw strenuous opposition, that a role of education shouldRead More be to encourage spiritual development by teaching, not which religion or any religion students should subscribe to, but that a persons spirituality is an integral part of man's nature and like developing the skills to share knowledge and to analyze, and to be physically fit and healthy, it should be stressed as an equally important facet of being human. It could well be taught how our founding fathers used their spiritual nature and how the pulpits in America were the Firebrand that had the highest influence on the outcome of American History. It could also be taught how that influence was systematically reduced through passing generations and what influenced changes and why those changes occurred through times and political eras.

You do the most to reduce "overlap" by making government do less. Rather than try toRead More reduce government to doing things only once, let's try to get it out of businesses where it does not belong, and make sure it does each absolutely necessary thing at most once.

Our founders warned us. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Look at the sacrifices that theyRead More made. Ours pale by comparison.
Keith O. April 18, 2014 at 09:38 pm
Donald, if you're referring to the sacrifices detailed in the oft-circulated essay, variously calledRead More "The Price They Paid" or "Our Nation's First True Patriots," (including being captured by the British, tortured and killed) it's basically a bunch of BS. Historians including Joseph J. Ellis have noted the "distinction between history as experienced and history as remembered." John Adams himself spoke to the propaganda promoted soon after the Revolutionary War that distorted events and created heroes to fit a dramatic formula. The boring, real-life biographies of the founders have been repeatedly embellished over the years with exaggeration and pure fiction to make for a better story, when what most of them went through was what everyone went through on the American side during the war.

In regard to the word racism maybe the definition should be expanded. Why settle for segregatingRead More people into groups based on skin color and then trying to make each group equal to the other group. We don't typically sort people by hair color to test for equality of groups. It would seem to me that the best way to cure "racism" as defined by group sort equality would be to make people color blind and not group at all.

A Liar , you admit " am not seeking knowledge from you, Roy, "----- I have alwaysRead More maintained you don't seek knowledge. That's part of the problem, you need more of it. You are in the company of hoards just like yourself.
Roy Roscoe April 19, 2014 at 02:35 pm
Knowledge is something that should be sought and I'm glad ALiar asked some questions. Now if you'llRead More listen to the answers they are these: hypocrite the dictionary explains the definition but know this an alcoholic who drinks every day is not a hypocrite if he tells another person not to drink because it might destroy a life. He would be a hypocrite if he said don't drink because what he does isn't really drinking. I hope you catch the difference. Re feminism it is hypocritical to say you are the people who defend women's right to choose a political position or candidate when they agree with yours but then not offer the same defense from feminine attack on women who use that choice for causes you reject.

Kerp in mind the Ovama Justice department doesn't go after lefties with the same volition. JusticeRead More is no different that the IRS.
