Raburn and Inge still suck....So do liberal state taxes.....NY, California, Illinois, The big three.....Where all the media comes from....NYC, LA and Chicago.....Tie in where media comes from and the state they come from then you have the libearl party......All three states are a huge train wreck when it comes to fiscal respobsiblities....Why does the media live there?Raburn and Inge do indeed still suck.
Everytime you elect a lawyer as a president your in trouble......How many lawyers have done you guys right? Obama was nothing but a lawyer hence policy in Illinois and now the U.S. are chaging horribly.
Community oraganizer my butt....He graduated from Harvard as a Lawyer, He had one thing in mind. Be the the biggest Lawyer on earth. He got that and anyone that voted for him, have fun when your 60......Cracks me up, I'll live in Canada or Mexico when I'm 60 before living in this country. I served and protected this country for over a decade. It's a shame that one man could have ruined it so fast.
That's past tense fellas, the country is wrecked. There's no coming back. He still has 4 more years to turn us into Greece and Western Europe. If you think taxes are bad now, you got a rude awakening.......Eurpoean countries spend 2/3 of their paycheck on taxes.....For some reason they like it....Maybe it's because they don't have to fund a military anymore now that we pay and take care of it, much like Canada......That's right Canada....I'm saying it.....Life is good because you put a dime a year in your military.....Must be nice then laugh at our health care......
Fun is over America is broke and it can't be fixed without complete bankruptcy....Much like the USSR in the late 80s. That country still isnt back and it's been over 20 years. Welcome to your future young bucks. Might want to find some Russian friends online to talk to and find out how they did it living in that world....Because that is your world America.
I will just take my old butt to the grave and let the next generation realize you have a long road ahead of you, I gave it my best, but your generation just thought free stuff was more important.
Some of it is 100 percent true and factual not opinion. I will indeed live in Mexico or Canada when I'm 60 and I did serve our military for over 10 years. I'll leave the rest to opinion, that's what the boards are for.
Beyond that opening statement, none of this post is remotely true..
Let me amend that to both parties and apathetic voters are responsible.
Today we have gov't officials roaming our school testing random students and taking notes on teachers as they peek in from the hallway. Sounds good in theory, right? Unfortunately these people responsible for "grading" the teachers have ZERO experience in the field of education. They are all clerks and assistants who took a 3 DAY course on grading teachers for effectivenessTP,
IMO there should be a weighted system for evaluating a teacher's effectiveness in the classroom. Based partially on the following criteria:
- having a tiered management /mentorship program to assist in the development and evaluation of the teacher.
- provide tools and technology standards to increase the skills of the educator, and evaluate the individual's ability to utilize these tools in a proper way
- define expectations for classroom activity from the start to finish of the school year. This should already be in place, but there should be some mechanism to quantify the expectations
- the average student improvment in daily pupil assignments and test scores (should be already in place)
- a defined and weighted evaluation coming parents and students, parental evaluation weighted by parental involvement in the education and development of their child.This is what we really need, but it won't ever happen because it interferes with basic civil rights. Parents badly need to be evaluated, but that isn't feasable without invading their homes.
The conservative politicians (sorry for singleing out a party, but it's the truth in this cas) want you to believe that the teachers are failing students so that they can cut gov't funding to schools, privatize them, and turn a profit. These guys making the laws all send their kids to private schools (which are 1000 times better than public schools), so they don't care what happens in the public ones. They see money to be saved, and money to be made.I disagree with your accessment of this totally. It is so easy for others to paint with a broad brush and accuse those of Conservative principles of nothing more than prying for profits. I think within your own comments there is proof otherwise.
