Money, in general, shouldn't be allowed to buy yourself out of trouble, but if it can ease a mind from work-a-day worries, that's wonderful for them.
    I am not talking about work a day worries only. I am talking about our disappearing working class. In the long run it will hurt this country badly. Nothing wrong with being rich at all. The problem is the trickle down theory is not working and never did.

    Some are, most aren't. Protecting the environment, and our workers etc seems like common sense. To bad corporations and other "entity's" were given "personhood." is just one more weight dragging down the middle-class. Eventually it will be nothing but rich and poor. And since the poor make up the majority of the military and police etc, what do you think it will eventually lead to? But why should you care? You have a Lexus, lol.

    Buy the way Guy, I drive a Mustang convertible. It was between that the Audi TT and at the time new Camero. The Audi just cost to much for having no convertible option. and the Camero was not convertible (at the time) and the interior was cramped. Mustangs rule, lol.

    I don't have a Lexus. I was using it as a statement (just like I'm not rich).

    I'm just middle class. Got a Jeep not long ago though. It's fun.

    I'm not disappearing, and the rich don't really affect me that much.

    Jeep's are good. They hold value well.

    You may not be, but it is happening. The divide is growing wider between rich and poor every year, and not by a little. I would not expect it to affect you or I, maybe not even in my daughters lifetime. My granddaughter however will have to deal with it.

    It is his education and regardless of secondary benefits to the rest of us the fact remains the education is for HIM.

    I'm saying that government schools will still be open and accepting students, just as they are in Indiana, where there are vouchers. I'm also saying that private schools aren't going to walk away from free money, and will open up to accept students at the government rate, again, just as we have seen elsewhere.

    Republican Govs wont even cover their citizens that dont have health insurance
    that is because we already have a program that does that. It is called "Medicaid".

    "Are Teachers Overpaid and Underworked?"

    No, a teacher's compensation and work-load are definitely not the problem_

    They're overprotected and unaccountable which destroys the incentive to perform their job productively_

    This is due to a politically connected union which makes it impossible to weed out the bad teachers_

    There are good teachers but unfortunately when you mix dirty water with clean water you get dirty water_

    All Public Sector Unions should be outlawed and educators compensated by private sector standards_

    Merit based pay is not necessary because without a union, meritless teachers would no longer be tolerated_

    And all educators, whether they teach in The Hamptons or Harlem, should be held to the same standards_

    Of course without parental support there will always be those students who will continue to fail as always_

    Look everyone, I just solved the education problem in the United States, and it was easy__Common Sense_
