Sabyen91: farkin_Gary: Corporate Self: gaslight: So....who will be doing the teaching ..."

For-Profit corporations! Q: Quick, what is the atomic weight of Bolognium? A: Delicious!

who will be doing the law enforcement and who will be putting out the fires?

The corporation formally known as Backwater.

See if we outsource everything then almighty and all-knowing entity known as "The Market" it will make everything high quality and for a cheap cost!

Corporations: Their first priority is providing quality service!

You're quite pooping in the path of your contingent.

Oh, shut up Gary. Nobody likes you. Go back to your bunker.


Just put me on your "list." That's what all the hard core lefties do.

Is there anyone in here who thinks that a generation of Americans with less knowledge and education than the previous is a good idea?

If so... how would that be a good thing? In what way does it make us a better country?

Benjamin Franklin's formal schooling ended at the age of ten. What's your problem, sparky?


It is sad that he was so much more intelligent than you.

skepticultist: eurotrader: There is an excessive amount of police officers in the US. The number of sworn peace officers has more than tripled in the past twenty years to over 1.2 million while the population has only grown by about 24%. Police are needed but with the hiring binge the number of people that are officers that have no business carrying a gun and badge has exploded. I do not think that was what Romney was getting at but it should be explored.

The crime rate decline of the 90's could just as easily be explained by the legalization of abortion. That is if you believe the theories espoused in Freakonomics. He actually covers most of the prevailing theories, and the increase in number of police officers is far from the most compelling reason.

This will only stay in the pundit conversation until Obama has his weekly slip of the tongue on Wednesday, followed by Romney saying something else dumb the following Monday. And so on, for the next five months. Enjoy.

Abortion was legalized in the 1960s. How in the world would something from nearly 30 years prior have that drastic of an impact on the crime rates of the 90s. If you credited for a drop in crime in the 80s, you might have a point, but not for the 90s.

Of course increased knowledge is a good thing. I don't advocate a dilution of learning opportunities. Yet, the greatness upon which today's society is built was largely accomplished by a generation of good folks who had no more than high school diplomas and vocational certifications.

Abortion rates didn't become prevalent until the 70's. Those non-existent kids would be crime committing adults in the 90's.

I used to get mad when people said that, but now that the recall is over, and the people here were dumb enough to support him after all that has happened... yeah, fark WI. We deserve every last bit of what happens next. I just shake my head when I hear people saying "at least we took back the Senate, so now he can't do any more damage." Yeah, control of the Senate is out of his hands until the next Senate class is sworn in next January. This November there are 16 Senate seats up for reelection; 10 Dem, 6 Repub. There's a good chance the Senate will be controlled by the GOP again real soon, and this mess is going to happen all over again, but this time he knows he can get away with just about anything, and he's already been talking about how this was a sign that the people of WI want him to do more of what he's doing. Shiat ain't getting any nicer here for quite some time, and the divisiveness that we've been through already is just the beginning.

I know you're just trolling but I'll bite.

"We have 145,000 more government workers under this president. Let's send them home and put you back to work." -Mitt Romney

"(Obama) says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It's time for us to cut back on government and help the American people." -Mitt Romney

What do you think he's advocating here? Paid vacation? The man is quite literally saying that he wants to create jobs by firing over a hundred thousand public workers.

It's almost mind boggling. Firing tens upon tens upon tens of thousands of workers will certainly perk the economy right up! The beatings will continue until morale improves!
