    He thinks throwing money at teacher's saleries will cure the problems in our public schools.. When he said that, I put the chips on Hillary for the nomination.:cuckoo:

    Really? Please explain why offering higher salaries to educators might not attract a better crowd?

    Nothing against current teachers -- you couldn't PAY me to do their job the way their hands are tied -- but a lot of good educators take off for greener pastures for more lucrative pay. Teachers currently are paid about what cops and military are.

    This may explain why you are the "working man" and not management material... I an no obama fan... but increasing teacher pay for grammar and high school is probably a good start to bringing in good educators to the pre collegate level...

    I suggest You just keep swinging the sledge. and leave the design work to the engineers...

    The President has no power, authority or ability to increase or decrease teacher pay in any level of the US education system. It is NOT a power the Federal Government has.

    Funny... the Court's pretty much disposed of that issue, too.

    But we all know that you know the Constitution much better than all the Justices since the Marbury court.

    I bow in your general direction...... :rolleyes:

    Better me then you, you keep claiming Federal Authority is not supreme unless a State agrees.

    I never said anything remotely like that. Your comprehension must be on the fritz.

    And I don't play those games... capish? I said what I said. Don't pretend I said anything else.

    Have a good night.

    And you said THIS

    In response to THIS..

    So either you did not READ what I wrote or your simply trying to pretend you did not claim Federal law Supercedes State Law.

    And more of your argument that Federal Law does not supercede State law...

    In response to my statement the Constitution STATES that Federal law is supreme over any and all State law or Constitutions.


    Then we have this....

    Again in response to my QUOTING the relevant portion of the US Constitution that CLEARLY states Federal law when enacted using the powers granted by the Constitution is SUPREME over any and all State laws or Constitutions.

    Here let me quote that for anyone in this thread that did not happen to read the other...
