    Correction… review the video of Obama stating he had been to 57 and was going to the 58th.

    Balanced budget means planning to spend more than income and then spending exactly what was planned by borrowing the difference.

    Unbalanced budget means planning to spend more than income and then spending more than was planned by borrowing the difference.

    Eisenhower was the last President to administer a budget that lowered the national debt, spent less than income.

    I have wondered people who make absolute statements like yours would sign a statement like this “And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

    We the People vote for the best of the best from our area to represent us.

    Is this an example of the best of the best from her area?

    Is it reasonable to expect a higher degree of competency from our education system graduates?

    I mentioned this vote to someone who is a Obama supporter. The first comment was about the Republican’s voting against anything Obama does. After repeating the vote count 1-98 it was still neccesary to explain how many people are in the Senate and how many are from either party.

    We definitely need to return our education system to Freedom of Education.

    The ghosts of Wilson and a member of his administration FDR.

    Its easy to make school more affordable, ask the school administration and staff to donate three quarters of their time and teachers to donate half their time.

    Or just give the students the money to be spent in whatever school they choose.

    Of course if we want to improve education double the number of classes per day, isn’t that how we get more money to spend, double the amount in circulation?

    With an education system in decline, once rated number 1 now rated below 20th in the world, is there a chance that the education system is failing the students?

    Is there a chance that the further the elder students go in school the less challenging school becomes?

    If we could only add a few more course, say twice as many, then would we be twice as well educated? Or less than half as well educated?

    Inflation has the same effect every time. Add twice as much money in circulation and buying power goes down. Add twice as many course in school and education goes down. Its 2nd grade math, if the whole is divided into more parts each part is smaller.

    By oath each person elected to government office is responsible for deciding whether something is constitutional or not. Each swears to protect the Constitution. One must know the Constitution first and then protect. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    “The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;
    –to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;
    –to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;
    –to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;
    –to Controversies between two or more States;
    – between a State and Citizens of another State,
    –between Citizens of different States,
    –between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.” ~ US Constitution

    Where are morals taught these days?
    Public education is compulsory and no longer teaches virtues.

    If public education adds a few more courses there will not be enough time to teach anything in schools. Every course added deludes the effectiveness of public education.

    Reflect back on your education and what elements of that education you use in today. Had you started earlier in your specialty would you have needed “advanced” college education? A great many people use very little of their public school education and often even less of their college education.

    When your education is not the result of a political appointees opinion of “good for you” parents will again decided the education of their children and the United States will again return to the number one best educated public in the world. Our current position is below 20th.

    There is a problem with suing. She would sue the government, not the person screwing things up. We’re the government, she would be suing herself and all of us, accomplishing nothing.

    When workers are not longer protected from this kind of behavior suing will get their attention and have the desired effect.

    “The almost unlimited amounts of money spent, I think it’s bad for our democracy and I speak as someone who has raised a lot of money. I’m very good at it,” Obama pointed out.

    Of course most 4th grade students know that the United States is not a democracy because our founders knew that every democracy in world history had failed and they wanted a stable long running government.

    As Ben Franklin said when asked what kind of government? A republic if you can keep it.

    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, Under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

    The people we elect to represent us in Washington DC are the best our voters know to select.

    Our voters are educated by a politically appointed government agency. We the People of the United States have turned the education of our children over to politically appointed strangers. For 50 consecutive years the level of education in the United States has been declining according NAEP and PISA standard testing.

    For over 100 years prior to compulsory education the level of education in the United States was considered #1 in the world. Since 1965 our education level against the rest of the world has dropped to below 20th.

    With that kind of education not only are we training voters but also the politicians being selected to represent the voters.

    How about repeal Fractional Banking laws.

    Defund any agency not supported by the enumerated powers listed in the Constitution.

    Teach the purpose of the Constitution.

    End our politically appointed education system because they are educating future voters. How could a politically appointed education be expected to provided other than propaganda?

    One of the first signs of financial hard times. People love their pets. When push comes to shove, who eats, the pet looses.

    Go to poverty areas in the world and notice the number of stray dogs.

    We are a democratic Republic. Those incompetent fools were elected by We the People.

    We have a politically appointed compulsory education system who taught our parents, us and our children. Those students grow up to be voters, apparently ignorant voters because none of us have a rich understanding our history.

    We can fix our nation by repealing one law in any state that wants to get ahead, the compulsory education law. Without compulsory education schools will need to compete for students. When education means making a living or moving on schools and teachers will take an interest in the community.

    Growing communities pay higher wages than failing communities. In rural America graduation day will no longer be moving day.

    When virtues are not characteristics of esteem, the sky falls.

    Does your picture of a dog give us any clues for the basis of your superior intellect?

    In the land of equal rights we get KeyStone to tell us what our rights are.

    At least learn the history of your alias KeystoneState.

    Hey monkey… is this your look at me, the superior intellect, moment?
