    What a stinking line of garbage.... and what makes it worse is the blatant intellectual fraud that produced it.... and Turtle - you damn well know it.

    Words cannot do justice to the level of pure dishonesty it took to write such a ridiculous statement in a discussion about government regulation.
    Ok, how about fugitive slave laws?

    I am afraid I must call you on your BS Comrade apdst. Fugitive slave laws are not an example of the government regulating slavery.

    It is an example of powerful government being able to decide who is more equal than others.

    "A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have".

    Gerald Ford (14 July 1913 – 26 December 2006) , the 38th President of the United States.

    No it is an example of a racist government making a deal between two groups in order to maintain the unity of the entire state.

    why are you defending the Nazis?
    I am defending intellectual honesty.
    I am defending basic decency.

    Something seriously lacking in your insulting remarks.

Schools that have the IB program produce very strong, well-rounded students. What are they doing that is so successful?....what?
    It's not a mystery. They get the best students. They have an application process. They don't have to teach every kid off the street.

Rather they have masters or doctorates in stuff like English Literature, american History, Biology, Chemistry, etc

    which is why the kids from that school are consistently winning all sorts of state competitions in academic subjects even though the teachers aren't qualified according to the public sector teachers' unions
    The kids from your school have won those awards because they come from wealthy, educated parents who take their parenting responsibilities seriously. The public school I went to has produced legions of Ivy graduates and national merit scholars for the same reason. In my personal experience it had very little to do with the quality of the teachers.

    I'm curious about whether you find anything wrong with such groupings.

    That's right and up til now, his policies and executive orders have only succeeded in discouraging job creation.
    I beg to differ. As would THOUSANDS of newly hired Boeing employees. His deal with India and Boeing helped create thousands of jobs for Boeing, both here in WA State and around the country. In fact, they're STILL hiring. They will avoid lay-off for many, many years thanks to this deal as well.

    Several people I know, who were unemployed for over a year, have a job now. And, we were also granted an additional 13 million(part of money FL gave up) for the high-speed rail network, which also creates jobs.
    So even though our unemployment rate sits at a steady 9% in my state, thousands of people have gone back to work. Like I said "more cars than road" right now.

    I wouldnt be so quick to say his policies and EOs have "only" succeeded in discouraging job creation. Your opinion is not fact, and plenty of 'newly working' people would be happy to help you understand that
