    left wingers setting critera
    the be taught be left wingers

    Right now in Kentucky our governor told them how it is, the state lied the pension system is totally underfunded and there is no way it can cover the promises that were made
    the governor has been talking about this for over a year and in office for less than 2, because the governor is a Rep, they all want to blame him and have him removed from office

    hey people it took longer than 2 years to get to this point it took decades
    and these are the people educating the children

    When I was in my teens I had a job where I encountered a lot of older construction workers. I couldn't understand it but more than once I was told that they'd trade anything for my youth. Now as I am older I understand it...they lived in the best times for our country and the world and they would love to experience it again. Like kantgetryte I am thankful that I am not just beginning my trip down the road of life and I pity those who are. The quality of life in America has been on the downslide for 40 years, maybe more. Now...if I was in China I might feel differently, they're in our mid 20th century lifestyle.

    capitolism, communism, socialism are just system outlines.
    It's how you tune them to fit that makes them good or bad.
    But any mention of a other -ism cause's sphincter's to tighten up.

    I really don't think I'd describe communism as a "system outline".
    How many 10's of millions of people did that outline kill.

    How is the future looking to you?
    To me I don't see a good one for a lot of people unless they happen to fall into the right career in college.
    I always remind myself that the lowering of our standard of living has been going on since the middle 1970's one slice at a time.
    It was only the last crash and the loss of the home owners ATM vault that made us aware of the true situation.

    I hope Trump does more for you then feel good.
    Feel good and $5 will get you a StarBucks coffee.


    It seems to me the best career choice these days is handling other peoples money. Investment brokers, hedge fund mangers and the like. They are the people pulling down the big bucks.
    They don't make any thing or employ anyone to speak of though.

    That's because our middle class jobs have been driven overseas by a number of factors. Industrial regulations being a large one.
    In case you can't see it Trump is trying to change that.

    There will be a lot of money to be made in the trades (plumbing, electrical, etc...)
    people aren't going into those fields, the work is below them and getting your hands dirty (unless you are an organic soybean farmer) is horrible.
    America would be fine if we can shake of the 60's radical leftists that run the govt
    and lose the mentality that everyone needs to go to college (considering a majority are wasting their time there)

    Even if all of the automotive jobs moved back to American plants would there be enough people who would take them? I have my doubts.

    Not unless they were forced to by new welfare regulations. As long as life is sufficient on welfare, welfare is where they'll stay. End food stamps, bring back bread lines and place water tankers for them to come and get their water if they don't like the city water and things would change.

    There is a need for skilled workers all across this country. The problem has at least two causes. 1. Millions of potential workers have been slaughtered in the womb. 2. Many who are able to work don't because they draw a government check for doing nothing.

    Hats off to the young man for debating and challenging his far off teacher and standing up for his beliefs.

    As for the teacher what a shame.
