    academics tend to vote dem because MOST academics are paid with tax dollars. Many lawyers vote dem because dems tend to create an environment that allows attorneys more fees-be it litigation or dealing with dem imposed regulations

    the groups with the lowest performances on IQ tests tend to vote dem
    So what? So do the most educated. Conservatives are in the middle.

    I don't consider people with M Eds all that educated. and when you strip away those sucking in the public teat, it explains the voting patterns

    one thing that is for sure, those who are most ambitious tend to vote GOP

    Here you demonstrate you don't know what you're talking about. Interest rates were raised fight inflation. Once inflation was under control, interest rates dropped. None of that had anything to do with Reagan or his policies.

Poor leadership, poor economic policy, and promotion of class warfare may make you feel good but the results are as expected.
    Again, you have no idea how old I am -- all you do by pretending you do know is to make a fool of yourself.

    I couldn't care less-I am speaking about the majority of those teaching at public schools.They tended to be people at the bottom of the barrel in college and I would be happy to compare my Ivy doctorate and masters with your mother's degrees.

    aheeemmmm:

    The commission is:


    • Co-chaired by former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles and former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY)
    • Comprised of 18 appointed members
      • 12 appointed by Congress (3 each per party per chamber) appointees must be sitting members of Congress
      • 6 appointed by the President (No more than 4 may be from the same party)
    • Expected to release initial recommendations to Congress no later than December 1, 2010
    • 14 of 18 commission members must agree on budget recommendations before they can be submitted

    The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform failed to reach the 14 votes necessary to move its deficit-reduction proposal to Congress, with a final tally of 11 member votes in support and 7 votes against. While the proposal's defeat was anticipated given deep concerns over recommended tax increases and spending cuts, the commission's efforts have highlighted the importance of finding solutions to address the the nation's growing deficits.

    not compared to those who majored in say engineering or have masters in real subjects

    Having a doctorate in law and a masters in labor law and industrial labor relations I find M Eds rather underwhelming

    Its all a question of perspective

    Your position that a M Ed is a tremendous bit of education might well be true from your perspective.

    Well since your posts never reflect education of any advanced level go for it!

    Oh and my dad has a Master's
    my brother has two
    and my other brother has his Phd
    oh and I have a master's too.
