    Yeah if you're poor and can't afford medical care we should just let you die. And then since you can't afford burial fees we should just let you rot where you lay. The birds will clean up the mess.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

Let the republicants be the first party to equally fund all comers in their primaries - that may be the ticket to gaining more party memebership and getting rid of the "deadwood" as well.

    Change can come from the bottom up, not only from the top down.
    Agreed. Isn't change imposed from the top down the definition of tyranny? Whereas change coming from the bottom up is called "consent of the governed" - which is the foundation of our Constitution.

    No distraction. They get money on a regular basis and not just once and done. That's a fact.

    Hardly. It'll likely spread beyond the two of you as well. Remember O'Leary's cow?

    That is your opinion but that isn't what your article states nor does it address the day to day operations of the police, fire departments, and teachers. You live in a liberal dream world that really is nothing more than a nightmare that is 17 trillion dollars in debt costing the taxpayers 250 billion a year in debt service.

    Has it? Or does history play any role? They didn't just start one day. There's a clear history that leads us to where we are, and always supported by the majority of the populace. And there is good reason to believe that even the founding fathers, had they lived that history, would have followed the same path. They weren't incapable of thought or of adjusting to problems.

    However, all that is noted here is that it is a fact that the federal government contributes funds to all three.

    Out of ever dollar spent on public education about 7 cents comes from the Federal Govt. Tell us where that 7 cents goes and what it funds?

    Actually it is what it states, and I can link a lot more if you need them.
