Arizona state senator Al Melvin, R-Tucson and gubernatorial candidate, has sponsored legislation to bar the state of Arizona from implementing the Common Core educational standards. When pressed for details about what in the material he objected to, Melvin replied:

Pressed by Bradley for specifics, Melvin said he understands “some of the reading material is borderline pornographic.” And he said the program uses “fuzzy math,” substituting letters for numbers in some examples.

Notice above that I wrote "Pretty much the same thing"...

Just a matter of degree but basically the same...

JEFFERSON CITY – The House Appropriations – Education Committee cut deeply today into Gov. Jay Nixon’s proposals for public schools and higher education, slashing his planned increases by more than $200 million.

But committee Chairman Mike Lair, R-Chillicothe, found $8 to address a pressing problem. The money is to be used “for two rolls of high density aluminum to create headgear designed to deflect drone and/or black helicopter mind reading and control technology.”

On the summary sheet handed out to lawmakers, the money is slated for “tin foil hats” and was tied to an amendment removing language barring the state from accepting federal grants to implement Common Core standards for public schools.

Critics on the right have focused the adoption of the standards by President Barack Obama’s administration and sought to portray it as an attempt to indoctrinate children. A recent posting on the Eagle Forum website was titled “Controversy and Porn Pervade Common Core Curriculum.”

“Basically, when you deal with conspiracy theorists, you do logic first,” Lair told the committee, noting that he has filed bills to limit how student data is shared and blocking the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education from mandating curriculum or textbooks to local schools.

This is awesome.

pyro! In reply to your question/comment that Obama increased gas prices and cost you money. I show your comments in bold.

Since Obama got elected: the last years have been the best income-producing years of my life.


Are you Republicans bitching, while snickering, about all the money Obama has made you?

Or should you be voting for Democrats?

what about the increase of gas? along with the new tax that the dems are proposing?

Are you Republicans bitching, while snickering, about all the money Obama has made you?
he has cost me more money?!?

I will mention that most pundits don't blame the price of gas, the weather, or the state of their social life on the current president.

Average Gas prices in CA from 1996 to present peaked under esteemed ex-president Bush in 2007 & 2008 and peaked again under esteemed president Obama, but are now well under previous highs.

yes

the average Republican base voter strongly believes that President Obama was constitutionally given much great Federal powers than other Presidents when he took office back in January of 2009

for example, instead of understanding as high school kids do that the prices of crude oil and refined gasoline as set by free markets in world wide competitive bidding, Republicans instead believe that President Obama has the authority to sign lower gas prices only here in the US into law with a stoke of his pen

they also believe he has the awesome power to force private companies to hire people who are unemployed, again with his pen

proof of these powers is the all time highs in the stock market, clearly caused because President Obama ordered traders to buy more than sell, yes Repubs believe this too

in fact when you think about it, Republicans are very impressed with President Obama, so much so that they think he walks on water compared to previous US Presidents's powers

The disagreement comes on one issue only — should a Christian provide goods and services to an INTERRACIAL wedding. That’s it. We’re not talking about serving a meal at a restaurant. We’re not talking about baking a cake for a birthday party. We’re talking about a wedding, which millions of Christians view as a sacrament of the faith and other, mostly Protestant Christians, view as a relationship ordained by God to reflect a holy relationship.

Fook you bookworm. You hate gay people. All the other drivel is mental masturbation.

Well, yes----I suppose you have a point there.

Why would a conservative Republican want to vote for a (liberal-democrat) woman who tried to destroy the life of a woman who allegedly sucked her husband's dick?

Of course you would also be livid with rage, if Hillary had asked Monica to work with her as an intern------thus likely pointing to a lesbian relationship between the two.

Is it possible that you don't like Hillary Clinton, her life, and/or her politics?

You might think Jesus would bake a cake for a gay wedding. I think you are wrong because I don’t Christ would collaborate in sin.

Thanks for the response Coz
I just had to ask so we could get a better read on you,
after you sided with Chef, I was a little worried since he staked his claim on being an anti-science blow hard and turned the Climate Change thread into a total sh#t fest.

I get the finest of innuendo, believe me.
But I still don't get what your total message is, that Obama is being run by a higher force??


Please elaborate, are they a secret society, or just a couple of rich folks? Or are the Jews?
What?

I agree that Obama is pulled by forces of big money (conservatives) and all Presidents will give in to bad stuff, but it doesn't really go any farther than that.
But you get rid of the majority of conservatives in Congress, and the pressure will be changed for the better.

You know I don't give a f*#k what you believe, but I can tell one thing, Bluering and bookworm base their whole lives on believing the exact opposite of the truth when it comes to gays, climate change, evolution and how our Gov. should be run.

That is where the trouble lies.

Don't like food stamps? Then raise minimum wage

Tina Dupuy:
Feb. 21, 2014


Say you’re philosophically opposed to food stamps. Let’s say you feel better about yourself by calling those who’ve hit hard times freeloading parasites. Suppose the very idea someone somewhere may be cheating the system is enough for you to support snatching all subsidized sandwiches out of the hands of your fellow Americans. Imagine that right in the middle of the Great Recession you think feeding the hungry is actually hurting the poor and discouraging them from working. Let’s pretend — hypothetically — the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is one of the government programs you’d most like to see cut or dissolved altogether. Let’s suppose you’re the kind of person who’s disgusted by the whole thing. “Get a job!” you mutter at the TV when the food stamp issue is broadcast into your home.

Then you should be for raising the minimum wage!

There are 46.2 million impoverished citizens in this country. That’s more than the populations of Tunisia, Greece, Portugal, Switzerland and Ireland combined. Of these 46.2 million, about 10.4 million are the working poor. The others are largely elderly, disabled or children.

The most recent data tells us 10.4 million Americans work and yet can’t feed themselves or their families. Why? Because working doesn’t work. Working isn’t the solution to hunger because work doesn’t pay enough to buy food and shelter. Raising the minimum wage to the proposed $10.10 an hour would mean a person with a full time job and one dependent child would no longer meet the requirements for food stamp eligibility. Working could effectively get people out of poverty: A novel concept.

Currently the ideologically pure right wing thinks food stamps are a disincentive to work and a minimum wage raise will kill jobs. Their hope is to keep wages so low you can’t live on them while also cutting food stamps. It’s where philosophy shatters on the frayed edge of facts on the ground. It’s not realistic — it’s just Republican.

The right wing has shed its once storied pragmatism for a new outraged ostrich-with-its-head-in-the-ground approach to public policy. They’re against abortion and family planning; against the national debt and for tax cuts; against Obamacare and against socialized medicine (google it). So, when you ask a Republican lawmaker what their ideas are to fix pressing issues Americans face every day they just squawk, “Benghazi!” “Lawless!” and hide their head back in their proverbial burrow.
