I was going to say the same thing, one event does not say anything about "our" schools. This would never happen in an upper middle class school on Long Island for example.
Teachers vs students is an old tale

Goodness some of you need to read the paper more often.
American campaign operatives arriving in a foreign country is no big deal.

So let me get this straight.
It is not estimated that it will cost 1.3 trillion over a decade.
That is 130 Billion a year.
For that in exchange we get 24 to 27 million Americans insured who previosly were not.
I'll take that deal, sounds good to me....

Both sides have their analytical and non analytica thinkers in my opinion.
I remember attending a debate at my local library before the last Iraq war.
The liberal had this powerpoint step by step analysis of why it was a bad idea.
The conservatives argument bascially was frick it, we got bo...

"The problem with the left's agenda on this is it is impossible to bring those that are poor, uneducated, etc up to the high standards of everyone else.

| Political Talk|| re: Trump is interested in 2016 run - Eurocat on 1/25/15 at 9:59 am|
The reason that politicians give those pre-canned answers is because that is what the people want to hear. Nothing evil about that and it is not too complicated. The vast majority of the country does not follow politics or understand the issues so it is all about looking good and keeping it simple....

This thread is kinda strange because I don't think anyone carefully read the original post, maybe not even the OP himself (no offense to anyone).
Read it again. It doesn't say that the things that are done with food stamps like bail, lingere, cold hard cash are ALLOWED. They are just done, in vio...

The ISIS picks fights with everyone. They are an "end days, the end is near, end of the world" outfit trying to provoke EVERYONE to war with them thinking that will lead to the apocolypse (and heaven for them).
ISIS was in parenthesis because he probably said something that out of context would n...
