Ah! but such policies as described by Schol.S doesn't make rich people filthy rich! [evil]

(More seriously, there are other advantage to education is that educated people also bear more smarter, healthier children, so it actually spills to the next generations. Plus, educated people gets better jobs - more often than not, anyway - and thus can pay more taxes, then making the whole government able to invest either more into social programs - or reduce the tax load.)

Sure, that's what we need, but trying to win the battle with parents and teacher's unions hasn't gotten anyone too far yet. One of the best solutions I've heard is more charter school options and private school vouchers. Kids shouldn't be stuck in a bad school just because it's their district.

News flash: Police in Montana are trying to identify a mutilated body found today. The body is described as white, possibly male, and smelling distinctly of garlic.

Just so you know, GG, if Demos kills me it's going to be your fault for not letting her forget that I did that particular bit of photo manipulation [Razz]

My fault? I never mentioned that it was your handiwork!

But I do find it convenient that Tennessee is way closer to her location than Montana.

Which reminds me, here we have Aussies drooling to become Montanans (again).

Would that the powers that be would think like you ScholasticSpastic. That was brilliantly put. We need to put you in charge of fixing the Middle East crisis. [thumbsup]

5 stars to you sir.

You want to roll around in me? Kinky! Actually, I'm one of the most conservative people in my peer group. They tolerate me because I get all worked up about stuff and it amuses them. Also, we look GOOD together. (me struts, remembering better days... I'd fsck me...)

If I reciprocate and make you my hero, too, does that mean I've lionized the catgoddess?

Ah yes... so many have tried to tame the wild beast known as catgoddess. So many have failed.

Hmm, and most people here just avoid the political threads here because the ensuing discussion is like banging your head into a brick wall, serves no purpose, and feels really good when you stop [Wink]

The mind-numbing sensation brought on by discussing philosophy in the forum is enough to sustain me for a lifetime.

I will heed your warning...

Careful, Demosthenes, if my head gets any bigger I'll be unable to see my computer monitor.
