re: Texas debates real school choice!! We need this here NOW! - Big12fan
Who does this bill propose to help? The average cost of private schools in Texas is $9000 per year. With the State of Texas providing only $5200 per year, which group is going to be left behind because they cannot afford the extra 4 grand per year per child? Public schools will degrade even m...

re: Obama's Iran Policy "Willful Ignorance" - Big12fan
[quote]So the Saudi government is responsible for 9/11? I'm not blind to the faults of the Saudis. But they are terrified of Iran, and with good reason. Iran is run by maniacs. Saudi Arabia by an oppressive theocracy, that treats women like 2nd class citizens. But I'll take the Saudis ...

re: Obama's Iran Policy "Willful Ignorance" - Big12fan
I don't have a problem with disengagement in the Middle East. Some call it a catastrophe, but what we are seeing is more self-reliance in several areas. The Iraqi govt was always going to be an Iranian proxy after the fall of Sadaam. Now the Saudi's are actually getting off their fat rich arse to a...

re: Indiana passes controversial anti homosexual "religious freedom" bill - Big12fan
Would would be wrong with a "Live & Let Live Law", which basically states if it ain't hurting you, go along with it. I thought that religious folks were all about forgiveness and such. "Letting go" is the key to happiness. Focusing on our diffences is simply an internal choice of the individual n...

re: Those above, below or crushed by the law - Big12fan
Gap insurance is the answer. Insured for the amount of the loan as opposed to the market value of the car. Doesn't cost that much more, but hindsight is 20/20. Did the driver with no insurance go to jail?...

re: Those above, below or crushed by the law - Big12fan
Try again. This is not clear. So a poor man with bad insurance gets rear-ended by a bunch of Mexicans who have no insurance. So we should either fall apart or start a revolution? I think Ted Cruz would tell Driver A "tough shit, you should have purchased better insurance". ...

re: Oh Rand, Why? What happened to you? - Big12fan
Its real simple. No Republican will be nominated if he is weak on defense. So we have to look at it in terms of "degrees" of being a defense hawk. He is still a far cry from being a born-again neocon. Check out Jeb Bush's foreign policy team and see if you find any familiar names. [img]https:...
