@BigFish For every scientist that says there is climate change, there is a scientist that says there is no climate change. Just because Al Gore said he created the internet...doesn't really mean he did.
For as many loop holes there are in the income tax...you would think all of these entitlement folk would love just doing a straight sales tax on everything...oh..wait, then they would have to pay. ouch...reality sucks.
Our Federal, State, Local, School, etc. do NOT have a money problem, they have a spending problem. Income taxes take money away that could have been used to BUY a widget in return, creating a demand for products and creating jobs.
@BigFish What's the difference between someone bringing in a bomb and blowing up 50 innocent people and the US dropping bombs and killing 50 innocent people? Torture is wrong no matter how many lives it may or may not save.
@BigFish How does penalizing the job creators with increased wage burden help? The #1 liability for any business are wages. They only have X amount for wages. If minimum wage increases, they will have to lay people off or simply not higher additional help and automate procedures.
@RiverTam Why would you be for something that is proven to NOT deter drug use and costs thousands upon thousands of dollars to run when our school cannot afford enough books for the students? Should we test students for STD's to?? Since those are more prevalent than drugs?
@RiverTam School drug testing has been statistically proven not to deter drug use within it's population. Testing is an expensive invasion of privacy no matter how you look at it with minimal to no results. Why not look into alternatives that actually work.
Anyone who is FOR common core has obviously not read into the curriculum or how schools are graded. They are not graded on pure test scores, they are graded on a curve based on the percentage of students in economic hardship. According to the govt. Poor kids are dumber.
