“"The left", and anyone else with a calendar, knows that the (very expensive and unfunded) wars started under Bush, as was the dramatic increase in the national debt (an 86% increase from what the Clinton administration bequeathed him). These are facts. This, in reply to your comment about "forcing future generations to repay debts they did not incur." One should acknowledge where the debts came from. That is all.”
“I dunno, I read the article we are commenting on and found that it was all explained quite clearly. Quote: "the interviewees know (or should know) what they are getting into when they meet him, but they often forget because they simply aren't self-aware enough to see themselves as the subject of a joke." In other words: people's arrogance when being interviewed makes them suddenly and unexpectedly stupid.”

“I saw some of the interviews with Steve Gleason, who has ALS, on Sunday's football pre-show. Brought tears to my eyes. These guys are good, kind, and smart. Eddie's frustration on the gun issue reflects my feelings exactly. But since he's a musician he has a platform, whereas all I have is arguments with family members. Dang it. Keep on rockin' in the free world, guys!”

“"my FEELINGS exactly"
Personally I prefer facts for important social and political issues. Especially ones that involve people dying.”
“It's not so much "bad" or "lazy" teachers, it's the whole stupid system. Teaching to the test. Politics. Unions. Teachers aren't ALLOWED to teach anymore, there is so much bureaucratic nonsense to deal with, so many obstacles in their way. My youngest is in 6th grade now and my advice to anyone with young kids is "save up for private school". The government has placed public education so low on their list of priorities, I hold no hope anymore.”
