BTW, Is A Free Public Education Free?

I have spent over a thousand dollars so far this year for school costs for my niece who now lives with us.

Why are we paying for subjects and 'costs' that cause us to pay for programs that used to be part of the basic curriculum?

History used to be history. Now it is a class on what is wrong with our history. Sports used to be part of going to school, now it is an expense.

That sucks. And it is now expensive.

Spineless Biden Throws His Son Under The Bus To Please Obama For Defeat In Iraq

Joe Biden used to support the troops. Now Joe Biden should be supporting his son.

He isn't. He is supporting Barrack Obama who does not support our troops. Snatching victory from the jaws of victory is thirsty and dirty work. To participate, one must desire victory in a political race more, and be willing to disgrace the blood of those who have died completing their mission, than a victory for one's country.

That is Obama. Joe Biden, for all his back stabbing faults, supported our troops. For political gain, Biden is willing to knife our countrymen in the back. He is willing to stab his own son in the back.

Joe Biden Supported Funding the Troops Before He --joined Obama and-- Didn't Support the Troops
Joe Biden: "And, look, Tim, if you tell me I've got to take away this protection for these kids in order to win the election, some things aren't worth it. Some things are worth losing over. That would be worth losing over. Hundreds of lives are being saved and will be saved by us sending these vehicles over which we are funding with this supplemental legislation. And I want to ask any of my other colleagues, would they, in fact, vote to cut off the money for those troops to protect them? That's the right question. This isn't cutting off the war. This is cutting off support that will save the lives of thousands of American troops."

Biden is a known liar by his colleagues in Congress. He is known for not keeping his word. He is known for his willingness to renege on his word for political expediency.

He is not worthy of the term of candidate, let alone Vice President.

PO'd About The Wall Street Mess?

Follow it back to Fannie & Freddie and follow that back to the Democrats in Congress and look at Schumer, Dodd and others, but especially look at Barney Frank. Frank is still the classroom smartass who is bright, but totally unreliable to make correct decisions and he doesn't get that this isn't a game of, 'ha ha, look at what I did!'

Frank has hurt millions of people and reliably, he will deny it and will smirk and dare anybody to go up against him.

Lawmaker Accused of Fannie Mae Conflict of Interest
Critics say such programs led to the mortgage meltdown that prompted last month’s government takeover of Fannie Mae and its financial cousin, Freddie Mac. The giant firms are blamed for spreading bad mortgages throughout the private financial sector.

Although Frank now blames Republicans for the failure of Fannie and Freddie, he spent years blocking GOP lawmakers from imposing tougher regulations on the mortgage giants. In 1991, the year Moses was hired by Fannie, the Boston Globe reported that Frank pushed the agency to loosen regulations on mortgages for two- and three-family homes, even though they were defaulting at twice and five times the rate of single homes, respectively.

Three years later, President Clinton’s Department of Housing and Urban Development tried to impose a new regulation on Fannie, but was thwarted by Frank. Clinton now blames such Democrats for planting the seeds of today’s economic crisis.

"I think the responsibility that the Democrats have may rest more in resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was president, to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac," Clinton said recently.

Personally, I think that the Democrats, both actively involved and those who sat back and just reaped the financial rewards, should stand next to the corporate executives and answer to justice. If found guilty, they should have to spend every penny they have to pay us back.
