The Romans, Germany, Russia and God knows how long a political decision was made the same before thoughout history.
Political decisions were never ba
People don't know much about history. People even forget about things that happened 20 yrs ago in politics.
For some it is. lol
the dumbing down of America. Special interests do rewrite history with their own interpretations and the Ignorant American public simply doesn't know any better. We hear answers like "its the public school system, let's quit putting money into it. It's broken." There have literally been hundreds of studies and the bottom line is that its the home environment not the school that has the greatest influence on the success of the child's education.
We have to take a test to drive a car but any damn fool can have a child. That's why putting more money into public schooling has had limited success. However, taking money away from public schools will only exacerbate the problem. Which I think we can already see occurring as the class divide continues to magnify.
Racial bigotry and political bipartisanship are reaching historical levels. The more people in our society that are driven to the fringes the greater civil unrest will become. We need to invest in our citizenry or they will tear down all that we have built. Anyone who has studied history and human behavior should realize this.
I have to agree about Quantitative easing. What a load of ****. China and all the other countries buying up our dept have got to see this dodge for exactly what it is. We're printing money with no backing. It's just printing money. It devalues the dollar bill and I don't understand enough about economics to understand how that's going to help. I voted for this president and I've been less than happy with the results of the last 4 years. I suspect for quite the opposite reasons most people are unhappy with Barack Obama. I think he's done far too little and have not been pleased at all with what was done. I realize he has a powerful opposition but in my opinion he has simply wimped out on us time and time again.
I couldn't agree more.
Because we never learn from mistakes, someone always has to ruin it, its gone that way for centuries. Until we learn to put our own biased ideas (even mine) out of the way and at least try for the sake of all common people to come together its not going to get better but stay the same. I hate to put it like that but its true :/
Provided that special interests are involved, we will ALWAYS have this problem
