    Societies and civilizations rise and fall. America is no exception.

    Once the Mayans had a great civilization. When it fell their descendants even lost the ability to read Mayan script.

    Have you seen the crumbling infrastructure of California?

    Have you been to Detroit? The Motor City No More.

    At least forty percent of engineering students at UC Berkeley are citizens of the People's Republic of China. Did you know that?

    America is importing not the smartest most accomplished people in the world. It is importing the most impoverished and least skilled.

    Do you deny that virtually all liberal arts grads are doomed to a lower standard of living than their parents?

    Do you deny that the American soldiers in Afghanistan are on a fool's errand?

    Do you deny that Obama lacks legal authority to murder innocent Pakistani civilians with flying robots?

    I could go on. The entire world, except for America, recognizes the truth. Read the foreign press.
    1) Our public school system began going south well before Obama took office.

    2) A problem before Obama took office. Of course Obama is doing nothing to help.

    3) California's problem. Obama had nothing to do with it. For someone who pushes states rights, you conveniently forget about states responsibilities.

    4) Detroit? That has been in the crapper since the 1980's, when the auto companies began pulling out, and relocating offshore. How is that Obama's fault?

    5) Chinese engineering students? But I thought you said that our schools weren't worth a crap. Why is China sending their students here?

    6) America is exporting all it's good jobs, and on top of it, we are making the foreign students the most skilled, so that when they return to their own countries, they can effectively run the businesses that we handed over to their countries.

    7) I don't deny that, but can you also deny that many engineering, science, and technical students are also doomed to a lower standard of living then their parents?

    8) Soldiers don't run fools errands. They make sacrifices so that the rest of us can sleep safely in our beds, and disrespect their missions on political forums.

    9) Bush lacked legal authority too, but I heard no outcry then. Why now? Oh yea, it's a Democrat now.

    10) You could go on, and you probably will, but I will disagree with you, and in the strongest words I can find. The truth is that America is still the best nation in the world to live in. But keep reading foreign press, if you want to. I will stick to homegrown news, even FOX News and World Net Daily, before I accept the propaganda you seem so keen to read and tell us about.

    you mean the extremists who last november effected the greatest house turnover in three quarters of a century, the most state reps and legislatures in history, 10 governors and 6 senators?

    that's an awful lot of few

    that would make him remiss

    California's problem. Obama had nothing to do with it. For someone who pushes states rights, you conveniently forget about states responsibilities.
    infrastructure---stimulus---shovel ready...

    of course obtuse obama confessed to the ny times mag in october that he's only just learned THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A SHOVEL READY JOB

    Detroit? That has been in the crapper since the 1980's, when the auto companies began pulling out, and relocating offshore. How is that Obama's fault?

    Chinese engineering students? But I though you said that our schools weren't worth a crap. Why is China sending their students here?
    you're comparing my alma mater, cal, to some local ps?

    I don't deny that, but can you also deny that many engineering, science, and technical students are also doomed to a lower standard of living then their parents?
    they're still in far higher demand than the poets and ethnic studies majors

    Soldiers don't run fools errands. They make sacrifices so that the rest of us can sleep safely in our beds, and disrespect their missions on political forums.
    what's the exit strategy, again, in afghanistan?

    what's the withdrawal timeline as of this week?

    we all know when he SURGED

    You could go on, and you probably will, but I will disagree with you, and in the strongest words I can find.
    before he even posts?

    more power to you

    But keep reading foreign press, if you want to. I will stick to homegrown news, even FOX News and World Net Daily, before I accept the propaganda you seem keen to read.
    you're disparaging the times of london, der speigel, afp?

    America has always heard from loud defeatists who counted us out before the real fight ever started. Sorry, but I believe in American and its people.

    You are just whistling past the graveyard. I know these facts hurt. Take the pain.

    On education I was talking about K-12. The State of California is cutting funding for the UC system because the state is broke.

    Aren't you a Dungeon Master? Shakes head. Go.

    Sadly, I understand it far too well and recognize those who can only destroy instead of build. They are the cancer in our society and they must be removed or neutralized so that the body can survive in health. Its us or them. Easy choice.

    How are America's public school kids doing in comparison to the children of other industrialized nations, even third world nations?
    Many are doing quite spectacularly thank you. And if we ever got our ridiculous standardized tests to dovetail with a national curriculum like these other nations you are envious of, you would be surprised to see the results narrow considerably. This has all been explained to you in detail before.

    How are Americans going to pay the increasing National Debt, unfunded Social Security liabilities, and unfunded Medicare liabilities?
    Raise taxes on those who ahve the most to pay and pop the cap while freezing benefit levels. This has all been explained in detail to you before.

    Have you seen the crumbling infrastructure of California?
    Repeal Prop 13 and you will be on the road to a better state.

    Have you been to Detroit? The Motor City No More.
    I was just there hours ago. And so was the Motor City.


    At least forty percent of engineering students at UC Berkeley are citizens of the People's Republic of China. Did you know that?
    Lets treat them well and hope they remain here to make a contribution to America.

    America is importing not the smartest most accomplished people in the world. It is importing the most impoverished and least skilled.
    Like those previously mentioned Chinese engineering students? You contradict yourself from one line to the next.

    Do you deny that virtually all liberal arts grads are doomed to a lower standard of living than their parents?
    Time will tell. But right now, you certainly do not know this.

    Do you deny that the American soldiers in Afghanistan are on a fool's errand?
    American soldiers have been on foolish errands around the world for the last six decades. That was a time when you claim things were better. Meet the new boss - same as the old boss.
