    Are you referring to the $9 Billion that your Gov. Perry used from the Stimulus to balance his budget, helping to cover some of his right-wing social engineering? You do hate Obama with a passion donchu?

    Are you saying that there are no federal dollars coming to school districts?

    And how about that public funding of charter schools based on fraudulent grades given to the schools under pressure from above? A pay-off to a donor who owns the charter school.

    As usual you bought the leftwing talking points but regardless what exactly would you have the Governor of TX do since the bill was passed, the money was going to be spent, and the taxpayers of TX helped fund that bill?

    That isn't what I said, I said that your teachers aren't funded by Federal Tax dollars and it isn't the taxpayers of TX's responsibility to pay for your school district expenses. The Federal Govt. is required to pay for anything they mandate such as No Child Left Behind.

    You never heard of an unfunded mandate? You just named one.

    I did not say TX's respnsibility. School monies from different sources go into one pot, get muddled and moved around. They overlap. Different states do different things with their funding causing different levels of equality. It will always be that way. I had 33 years + 4 retired but still active.

    Good point. But will only open up a new line of argument and revision at whose fault unfunded mandates are. Like so much in Special Education. Neverending argumentaive.

    Peace Corps is not a social program. Its a public relations community organization. And it has plenty of abuse

    If you say so, Conservative.

    What gets me is that these paranoids will spend literally Trillions on imagined "threats", but they are totally blind to the obvious, the crumbling of the nation all around them. They seem to think building bombs will save them while ignoring the decay of everything from Interstate bridges to the electrical grid, from the inner cities to the middle class, from the health and welfare of our youth to their education. Freaking idiots.
