    Fair enough, I am a student, therefore I do not, thankfully, have kids. But I think that equality, compassion and the disdain for elitism is universal.

    Careful, if you keep inviting Californians to move to Texas, you will be overrun with liberals....

    who cares what you said

    what matters is what the electorate said---tsunami tuesday, baby!

    most house pickups since 1938, 6 senators, 10 gubs, 21 state leg's, 695 state reps, most in modern history

    which, of course, explains the president's recent radical reawakening

    the revolution is so passe

    The pic of the "incinerator" is suspect. That looks like a power plant. An incinerator doesn't need a cooling tower...
    never mind, it uses waste to make power, so it is a power plant. Those things stink, I used to take secure burn bags to one, had to watch it enter the fire before I left. Got to carry a .45 while escorting the burn bags...

    elitism is neither good nor bad. My nephew is in the special forces as a captain. They are the elite and that is a good thing. POliticians pretend to be elite and that is a bad thing

    Yes elite according to merit is good, but elite in terms your policy objectives and what constituents you serve as a politician or leader is another.

    weaning people off of handouts tends to make them into adults.

    I think one can be proud of their achievements and recognize their success, but can still stay humble. While treating others who many not be as successful with as much respect as they would treat someone in a better position. So if your nephew isn't egotistical and thinks he deserves more then anyone else I wouldn't call him an elitist.
