    I certainly don't think private schools should be illegal, my kids, and I, went to catholic schools. Great education.

    yes. that's a problem for me... the entire federal dept of education is a problem for me.

    good to hear that private school should remain private,etc
    I'm pretty big on education.. i'm not, however, big on tossing money at something in hopes it will get better...especially when a good portion of that money goes to administration ( which coincidentally, also has never educated a single child)

    fire 2 administrators from each school district around the country, and I can feed every single child a meal for lunch... a federal dept is wholly unnecessary to meet that goal.

In fact, they should not be controlling OUR oil. They should not be making money betting AGAINST us.

    It's unbelievable to me that given the stark differences between the parties, one could ever land on the republican side. Do people really understand what our country was founded upon? It was founded upon opportunity, which republicans want to deny to everyone who hasn't yet made it. Do you really think a ghetto kid has the same opportunity as a rich kid?

    That makes it rather easy to give tons of money to the middle class without doing any wealth redistribution. Jack tax rates up on income over $1 million in order to eliminate FICA tax. It's a tax cut. We've cut FICA. Certainly this isn't wealth redistribution? Yeah we're taking a lot more from the rich now. The taxes are funding benefits for other taxpayers. You wouldn't consider this wealth redistribution, right?

    Well yeah, progressive taxation is by definition a redistribution of wealth. [/end thread]
