Remember those "broke" School Districts?

Here is one more expenditure "for the children" that will have no impact upon the 3 Rs. This is just as silly as the perimeter fences erected nationwide around schools, following Columbine. With a fence, if you want to enter the school, you have to go through a door. Without a fence, if you want to ...

Lordy, rcpmac, where are you, "at large"? Are you on the lam? Are the Christian Patriots after you? Repent! Whether it's offense or defense is always open to challenge. But does it matter– really–when troopers are knocking down the back door of Abdul's Hashish Cafe if it's an offensive...

Sorry, Woof, but I don't regard Nader in the unqualified, high esteem that many others do.
I see him purely as an imperious, manipulating, self-aggrandizing charlatan.

Four slots up is my opinion of Nader. Tsk Tsk. Thos Sowell, like I and many, many others, once regarded the fellow differently and without dispute, accepted much of what he said. Sowell's opinion has changed. Sowell agrees that Nader is in this for Nader and that many of us are too dumb to be charge...

By no means is it everything! Ha, I wish it were, SLM. But the military and national defense are about necessity– and responsibility. One has no choice of whether to defend the nation any more than one has a choice of whether to defend his wife and children. There is so, so much in life where...

The long-winded and cynical article posted by rcpmac mentioned draft; aggression in foreign lands, and plans. We pay out gov't to plan for defense and to have a method to defend. If enough troops cannot be found to fulfill our military needs voluntarily, then conscription is the only way I know of. ...

Draft is serious business; so is terrorism. I would be disappointed if Uncle were not always preparing for threats from abroad, having a plan on the shelf and ready to dust-off at a moment's notice. We pay our govt to protect us, just as we pay our local police. As long as people are willing to fly ...

Shifting Jobs abroad: Your Tax $ at work

This article says a bill will be introduced to deny taxpayer-back loans to corp. that want the money to help to establish manufacturing plants abroad. Why does a company such as Motorola, an outfit worth billions, get money from the taxpayers to finance its operations? Why cannot it finance these pr...

Oh, SteveAx, not you, too: another who jumbles-up what I write. Where did I write this?
No where, nowhere, have I expressed such a belief as quoted above.
I am surprised at you.
