    The Articles of Confederation were too weak to effectively run a government. The South lost the war in part because states (most notably Georgia) refused to let Davis and the government of the Confederacy draw taxes and sustain the war effort. GA even threaten to secede. If you’re going to give a history lesson, please know something about history.

    Explain to me why no one admonishes people that make derogatory references to Jews or other races like Janet did? Is it because to tacitly (or directly) agree? Racial hatred has no place in this kind of discourse. People should be able to disagree without hatred. That burns me up.

    That may be the dumbest comment ever. Prepare students to succeed in the 21st century by teaching them in the 19th. Great idea.

    Common Core is nothing more than standards. It has problems, but it’s designed just like Next Generation standards or State standards. Common Core is put together by multiple states working together. It isn’t content but measurement. And the emphasis on instructional reading will make the study of original documents more likely not less.

    Nationalism was a cause of WW1 not 2.

    The sheer idiocy on this topic is amazing. There are reasons to dislike the Common Core, but no one here actually has mentioned one of them. You of the tinfoil hat brigade see devils everywhere, coming for your rights. But that hasn’t happened. But the fear of it drives an industry designed to keep you in fear. Here’s the truth about the Second Amendment. Gun ownership was also tied to mandatory local and state Militia participation. That was changed in 1902 by the Dick Act, which placed Militias under the control of State governors and unlinked gun ownership from any responsibilities. There was and has been a significant rise in the murder rate in this country since then, leveling off in the last decade, when al crime rates have dropped. But there was never a free for all gun culture. At least not until that happened. And you can see that without great responsibility, the great power of guns in America has produced three kinds of people: those that use them to create fear, those that hoard them out of fear and those that want some rational response to the other two.

    You are an idiot, aren’t you?

    They aren’t breaking a law. They do not serve time. There aren’t here legally, but that is different from being illegal. That is the problem. Someone thought it would be good to use an alliterative word to describe them. Why is it that legal immigration costs so much? Why is it that “illegal” immigration is net zero? Why is taking 12 years to become citizens or volunteering for the Army (ala the Dream Act) is wrong? Is it that this just plays into the neo-isolationist dogma pushed by the far right?

    Um, Truhistory…Taft was a Republican. And he didn’t attack Mexico.

    RANGER SKIPPY- you know what else is not Christian? Most of the posts you leave on this site. please stop identifying yourself as a Christian. It does a disservice to the one who’s name you bear. Or do you think Jesus would call people names? Attack people for their opinions that differ from you? Make racist jokes? Approve of the ridicule of the leader of your country? I’m sure He didn’t. And you? You who sit and call judgement on that you do not know. Your tired arguments and hateful tone is unbefitting of who you call master. Perhaps you will find on that day that not everyone who cries “Lord, Lord!” will be allowed in. “For when I was naked, did you clothe me? When I was in prison, did you visit? When I was hungry did you give me something to eat?”

    Just shut up racist.

    You wanted a strict constructionist, you got one. Roberts followed the Constitution. Period. It’s stupid to think that this is the end of Freedom. You sound ridiculous when you are crying over a SCOTUS decision. The Heritage Foundation wrote this bill!!! It isn’t single-payer. It puts Billions into the hands of corporations and people will benefit. YOU will benefit.
