    If nothing else, that will make the parents reconsider letting them drop out.
    kids who drop out can always be conscripted into the infantry. teach them a trade and some discipline. the parent(s) needs to lose tax advantages for spewing out kids they won't take the time to raise

    I still smell something fishy about this whole Rosen thing. I thing this was a salvo from the DNC that backfired and exploded in their face.
    I wouldn't have been surprised if the venom had not spewed from the lips of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

    I also wonder how many points Obama will drop in the polls after that obvious "war on women" statement by a liberal pundit.

    I gotta ask. What is this "better way", IYO?

    Right now with unemployment being so damn high even the well educated can't secure employment - and you're fussing over the dropout rate? If our education system was better than it is we wouldn't have very many dropouts to speak of because it would be designed to graduate students before they were technically considered *adults* and able to drop theirselves from the system.

    You're looking for flaws and issues - and you're looking in the wrong fishinghole.
    short term, current economic issues, you have a point. Long term, before and after current economic issues, it is a major mistake to allow our kids to coast through life.
    Btw, I don't intentionally use absolutes.

    Comparing my parents offspring, and my wife's parents offspring, there is a world of difference. My side, most of my parents 16 grandchildren (and 6 children) are poorly educated and/or unemployed or under employed. Only 3 are college educated (our 2 plus one nephew)
    My wife's side, out of 20 grandkids her parents have, only 1 is poor and/or often unemployed, his choice.
    Most are college educated. Our 2 kids are in both those grandkid counts.....

    The difference has been expectations. My wife's parents had high expectations for their offspring. My parents had none...

    Subsidizing the poor is a way liberals have found, probably unintentionally, for the poor to remain poor, addicted to the welfare dime, and vote democrat.

    No, in case you haven't noticed welfare its a drain on the American tax payer.

    they are no different than pushers and addicts

    the addicts think the pushers are there to help them. They think those of us who tell them to kick the habit are "mean and nasty". The pushers tell them that we want them to hurt

    what a racket

    He's not paying the freight for all that sloth and dependency. If he does I suspect he will change his tune

    You know they threw Rosen under the bus quickly when it all fell apart. I'm starting to think this was supposed "to work", and continue his "war on women" thingy going. Seems the over estimated the Rosen woman's talent because she really sank the ship for them.

    Good analogy.

    If someone else is paying for the minimum you need to exist, I guess there are those that find that acceptable. But I'm just getting tired of paying for folks with this thinking.

    yeah, blowback tends to be messy...it isn't just the words that Rosen spoke, it is also who and what she is. The average woman voter will identify more with a mother who raised her own children than a Lesbian who probably uses daycare.
