We are not asking for food stamps like most republicans would think. We are asking for solutions. Why is our request so much different from the rest of the country.
    My apologies shewolf. I misread your post.

    Yeah, if Obama's education is a joke and Bush is so stupid, and TD doesn't understand a 1040, then I guess ivy league is overrated. It's just away for minorities and rich kids to get a piece of paper that makes them feel smart and special, and gives them a obvious ego boost and false sense of self importance in some cases. I never realized that self confidence can be so costly for some people.

    The more AA type programs, quotes, diversity ****, the more people assume that whoever the minority is that has been hired, picked up for college what have the more they believe that person is only there because of their skin color. Right or wrong that's human nature. Abolish that ****, MERIT is the only method for judging success.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I wouldn't know-I went to Yale as an undergraduate. I certainly know what a tax refund is. Maybe you should work on being less of a statist and stop making such inane comments towards me

    Obama went to a great law school and did very well. It is how he got in there that is troubling. You seem rather envious now of both the rich and those with Ivy degrees.

    He passed his courses and actually did better than either man he ran against. Gore had a bunch of Ds at harvard and failed to make it through divinity or law school. Kerry, despite being an ambitious nerd had slightly lower grades than Party-Frat boy Bush

    And in a magical world where people were actually judged on merit, maybe this would work!

    It's too easy to bait you TD, and I am not envious... and FTR, you didn't understand how tax refunds work (maybe no you do, IDK) and there is a thread here that proves it
