Hmmm, there are 129,000 fewer millionaires in 2011 than there was in 2010. I know, I know, we do not need rich people. But rich people buy thing and people have to make those things or service those things and that means ..... jobs.
Fewer rich people = fewer jobs. Real easy to understand. Poor people do not hire people, rich people do. And over 80% of all millionaires are self-made unlike Terri Tunna who's Daddy Big Bucks takes care of her.

Our teacher's union have ruined the public school systems. And also tenure at colleges and universities. Private school cost 25% less and the students get a better education.
Colleges and universities should go the same route as medical doctors. Have a private practice, rent out space on campus, and get your own students!!! No tenure!!! If you are a good professor your reputation will get out and the students will line up at your door. Be a jerk, and they won't!
Well, I taught school for a couple of years after I retired, so unlike you, I can speak with the voice of experience.

The teachers have not ruined the public school system. Sure there are poor teachers and there are great teachers just like in every other profession.

What I saw was:
1) lazy students being supported by equally lazy parents
2) various fringe groups demanding this or that
3) politicians making policy yielding to the desires of the fringe groups
4) administrators always trying to white wash any negative aspects of the school
5) way too much bureaucracy and paperwork
6) too much emphasis on 'high tech' teaching
7) the school system trying to be all things to all people
8) adminstrators forcing teachers to pass students
9) parents
'rent out space'? get real

It's obvious that you know nothing about education and teaching

Letter: USS Liberty’s sacrifice all but forgotten this Memorial Day

It was 45 years ago — June 8, 1967 — almost to the day, that the USS Liberty was attacked in international waters off the coast of Egypt by Israeli fighter jets and torpedo boats. Thirty-one Navy seamen, two Marines and one U.S. civilian were killed and 170 Navy seaman were wounded. Capt. William L. McGonagle was wounded and was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions on that day. The award ceremony was not conducted in the White House by President Johnson as not to embarrass Israel. Instead, it was awarded in an office at the Washington Naval Yard by the Secretary of the Navy with no media present.

Sadly, politics and voting blocks have denied the USS Liberty of it’s just due. There was a postal library dedicated in her name in Wisconsin, and not one US Navy official or dignitary was present. The USS Liberty Library naming was denounced by the Milwaukee Jewish Council and Anti-Defamation League as “anti-Semetic” at the time. To this day there is no official U.S. Navy memorial dedicated to her at the Norfolk Naval Base. The USS Cole, on the other hand, had one built one year after her attack with the president, secretary of defense and all the highest ranking military officers of the United States in attendance.

This Memorial Day we honored the supreme sacrifices of our military throughout our nation’s history. Let us not forget to honor the USS Liberty’s heroes.

Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda revealed that the couple had jailhouse phone conversations days before the bond hearing in which they talked about having raised about $135,000 through the website.

“We have the jail calls that the defendant made to his wife and to other people…in which he repeatedly tells her about the money, about moving the money and transferring it from one position to another,” de la Rionda said.“They were even using codes…thinking that the police are going to be really stupid when listening to these calls and wouldn’t know what was going on.”

Trump digs at Obama's birthplace

Shortly after that announcement, Trump - who'd said he was commissioning an investigation into Obama's birthplace - declared that he would not run for president.

Yet he's kept the controversy alive, as he did again Friday - even as he insisted, "I don't really like talking about the place of birth.

"I'm not a believer, so we'll see what happens," Trump said.

Trump, whose real estate holdings include a golf course in Charlotte, spared few in his remarks. He was critical of diplomats, said he has no respect for most political pundits and accused reporters - save a few - of being generally "dishonest."

Twenty years ago there were about 30% of Americans on the public dole and today it is 49%. Wither an exception for a few years after Clinton sign Newt Gingrich's Welfare reform, it has steadily gone up. Hell, why should they work when Obama will give them everything they need.
We should make it so these welfare bums don't take advantage of the system the way they do, have them work if they are able-bodied and supplement their minimum wage if need be, at least they would shoulder some responsibility and the supplement paid them would cost a hell of a lot less. BUT, having said that, what we taxpayers pay for these welfare bums (I include Canada,we are screwed the same way) is a mere fraction I wager compared to what corporate welfare is costing us. And these companies, in spite tax breaks and incentives that the ordinary joe will never see, export their money and their labour to slave labour havens. Get the big boys first, then go after the little guy. Every industrialised country does that, they have nowhere to go.

George Zimmerman had $200,000 support fund, attorney acknowledges
By Richard Fausset
12:16 p.m. EST, April 27, 2012 <<<<---------< NOTICE

O'Mara said that the family members, at the time of their testimony, "didn't believe that [the money] was fully available to them. But it was there."

O'Mara said that Zimmerman had already used roughly $50,000 of the money "for living expenses -- rent or whatever," and that the remaining $150,000 was now in a separate trust account under O'Mara's control.

He added that the website, and all other aspects of Zimmerman's Internet presence, have now been taken offline.

CRAPPING ON OUR ALLIES
Ken Berwitz
What is it about Barack Obama, that makes him so eager to crap on allies of the United States?
We have seen him do it to Israel for years. We have seen him do it to the UK for years. Now it is Poland's turn.
Most people who read news in the blogosphere (as opposed to relying on Barack Obama's Accomplice Media) know that, when presenting a Medal of Freedom to the late Jan Karski, he made reference to "Polish death camps" (as opposed to nazi death camps in occupied Poland). This was so reprehensible that even the usually pro-Obama media called him out on it, and Poland's Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski - correctly - characterized the comment "ignorance and incompetence".
But I wonder how many are aware of Poland's request that Lech Walesa, the world-renowned freedom fighter who was so instrumental in moving the country from communism to its current democratic government, receive the Medal of Freedom on Mr. Karski's behalf -- and that it was rejected by President Obama for being "too political". But, incredibly, during the same ceremony, Mr. Obama had no problem conferring a Medal of Freedom on a self-avowed US socialist.

I've rarely been asked for sources because friend and foe alike know that what I advance is correct. And the few times I've stated something, and source was requested, I complied every time, no exception. Now Rogue, I always make a distinction between "I believe that or it is my opinion that..." and you: "hey look what so and so said or did or the Supremes already decided they would reject Obamacare", I ask for a source, and your answer is "what source did you ask for"? What a phoney. Ask me my sources when I state a fact, any time, response is immediate. Oh yes, I've been wrong twice since coming to Topix, and those two times, immediately admitted I was. I don't mind that at all as I figure no one can always be right, particulalry not me.

I was just reading an article in Business Wire about an expanding innovative company with a revolutionary product used by big pharma, the food industry, and certain other industries. The guy who invented the device was a middle class guy who had a great idea but not much cash. I had to give him a fairly long term payment plan for the patent work. He's, doing great now. If he hadn,t the funds for the patent, he never would have been able to get it off the ground.
