Surprise, surprise...Union belonging Democrats (who depend on government funds) endorsing a Union-dependent Democrat who knows no limit on spending, despite the fact that it will render generations into massive debt.

I am astonished. (not)

If you do some research you will find that it is the Republican administrations that are responsible for deficits:

I guess if you say something over and over some folks believe it becomes true.

Ok let's try this over and over (close your eyes): the deficit is imaginary. Now keep doing this until it disappears.

Fiscal Conservatives for Obama (a responsible administration).

Say this over and over-----tax and spend, tax and spend. It won't work to get us out of the Obama recession---try again. Creating more govt jobs and handing out welfare payments does nothing to repair the engine of the economy--private enterprise.
VerminEveryone--you have no solutions---blaming R's, Bush or the boogeyman won't fix what the D's have set out to destroy. You won't be happy until we achieve 3rd world status, like Kenya.

Republicans don't spend, they just close their eyes and dream that it isn't happening (while spending). Bush and Reagan weren't Republican obviously (and I have even heard this).

Actually SteveP must have voted for GW and I would just wish they were courageous and upright citizens who would stand up and pay for their mistakes rather than shifting the blame.

These are not the courageous men and women who fought in two world wars. These are men who can only make money by cheating others and want zero regulations to be able to do it over and over and over (it's called libertarianism).
Yes you are making America like a third world country. Where lying is an acceptable form of public discourse. You shouldn't do things just because it's possible (liking pushing your way to the front of the line). Sometimes ethics and morals should control behavior. I guess you just didn't listen to parents, who were great Americans (and now we are stuck with these brats). Shame on you!

I guess I shouldn't be so surprised given McNerney voted for the $26B bailout so that teachers could maintain their entitlements and not need to adjust to the new economic reality like the rest of us.

Had Enough...Actually there is no NEW economic reality. Reality changes and in a year things will be better and reality will have changed. However decreasing opportunities for our children by decreasing the quality of their education whenever we have a downturn only impacts their future opportunity (and America's opportunity to compete).

Can we make our educational system more efficient? Of course we can but not by spending our complaining. Get involved with your schools!

Our teachers have Masters and PhD degrees and could easily be making more money in the private sector. They do not do it for the money. They do it for our future, which is America's future.

We can continue to bring thousands of foreign students into our universities or we can educate our own children to compete head to head with the best anywhere.

Again, and Again the political 'hors who call themselves educators...arent'. It's always politica first...rub your back...give me money. I hold them all in contempt for putting politics first.... In the old days NO 'educator' would even hint to their personal politics. THAT"S back in the days when INTEGRITY, character & honesty meant something..,.,NOT to the hypocrites of today who only mouth those words like theatre. They make me sick... so willing to 'sell themselves'' to the highest bidders.

I would not allow my children in the classrooms of such political scum. Can you imagine what kind of BIASED classrooms they run. Demand to have youR children in the rooms of 'educators' NOT politicians. A 5th grader should have NO idea of their teacher's politics ! That is very INTIMIDATING to a child. And this political scum BRAINWASHING our children to 'carry' messages home to parents if so low...messing with their heads...NOT educatings. NO doubt why schools are not what they use to me.

sick of hypocrites--

My goodness, a little touchy, aren't we?
Why don't you move your kids to a Texas school district? I'm sure their style would fit right in with your ideology...

Sick of Hypocrites, you kid comes to my classroom and tells everyone else's kids the things you have to say about politics. Funny how you're the one influencing the kids in my classroom! Your kids are repeating everything you all are saying at home. Wow, I see where the respect issues home, learned from parents like you. Believe me, I hear it all!
