    I highly doubt Bill Ayers will have a spot in Obama's cabinet or be anywhere near the White House.

    Your opinion is valued, why would he not reward all the people who got him where he is?

    OK, so you're a one-trick pony and it's the economy. What's to know?

    Joe the Plumber pulled the curtain back on Barry the Communist.

    If you're OK with the government unequally taking shit from people and giving it to other people, vote Barry.

    If not, vote McCain.

    Joe the Plumber didn’t do shit and sincerely wishes all the MSM attention would just go the Hell away.

    John McCain used Joe the Plumber in the last debate over twenty times and has now come to regret it.

    First quarter million taxed as before.

    Anything over a quarter million taxed at the Clinton administration level.

    If Joe the Plumber makes $270k he only gets the higher rate applied against the $20k difference, which equates to $600 extra tax.

    Do you honestly believe that less that $2.00 a day extra tax is going to drive Joe the Plumber out of business or keep him from hiring an employee. Honestly? Come the Hell on and get serious.


    The use of this individual in McCain’s campaign may be as big a mistake as Bush41’s "Read my lips: No New Taxes."

    If any of that is true, I *will* pull my kids out of school to homeschool them. Of course, the Obama Administration would probably make all homeschooling illegal.

    Wanna bet? He may not get a cabinet position, but he could certainly be an advisor. Barring that, he'd probably get to sleep in (and then bomb) the Lincoln bedroom.

    Yep. All that has everything to do with the Obamessiah's socialistic statement about spreading the wealth around.

    This is why parents' attendance at school board meetings is so important. My dad attended them regularly, and questioned their spending-in the case of my district, they would short academic funding for athletic funding on a regular basis.

    In 1981, our American History textbooks ended with the assassinations of MLK and RFK, and the election of Nixon. My dad went to a meeting where the teachers asked for new textbooks and were denied, but the athletic director wanted $25,000 for new stands at the football field and got his money. Dad started an academic boosters group with some other parents and one of the guidance counselors after that, and the district went and bought new textbooks for all the classes that needed them.

    But whether it's this, or inappropriate sexual education, or whatever issue, if the parents attend the school board meetings, they know what's going on and what to address. There are always crazy people, liberals and conservatives, who propose crazy shit to school boards. We had the head of the Michigan Moral Majority's church right across the street from our school-he had some pretty stupid ideas about public education, too, especially considering his kids were enrolled in private school. He was always trying to get the high school to remove books from the library-his usual target was The Catcher In The Rye, but he had some others, too. The school didn't use that novel in any curriculum, but it was in the library.

    I don't think Obama would allow Ayer's plans to make it to the average public district. Schools are a local and state responsibility, for the most part, not something that the federal government oversees. I also think that The Autobiography of Malcolm X is appropriate high school reading, for either a history or a psych class (I had to read it for a social work class in college, and write a paper applying Erikson's theory of psychological development to Malcolm's life-it was a useful assignment).
