    Have Republicans just "given up"?

    They are cutting:

    Education
    Rebuilding any infra structure
    Investment in innovation or technology
    They want to strip medicare of funding
    Turn over any Health Care to Companies who pay tens of millions to their CEO and BOD
    Turn Social Security over to stock markets now run by robots

    Once they've squeezed the country dry and turned over every single bit of capital to the wealthy and to corporations, "then what"? It's not like they can "leave". US Currency is only as strong as the country.

    What's the "goal"? The "end game"? Does the Republican base really think their leadership will do better than what "Bush" did? I know you want to blame it on Obama, but Obama and the Democrats have had to fight, not only the "filibuster party", but also the mess left by the "filibuster party".

    At least answer, "With education cut, what kinds of jobs will be "available"?" Who wants to hire anyone with no education? And "Bible School" is NOT education. Unless, "No Jobs" is the plan. Doesn't seem like a very smart one. You could make more money with a growing economy. "Cut" is the opposite of "grow".

    Apparently Rdean thinks no one will be educated if the Federal Government gets out of education and leaves it to the states like they are constitutionally mandated to do. So apparently all this spending on education isnt working so well in his case.

    Since it is obvious that education takes more than money, perhaps we should try a different approach than throwing money at it.

    Since the Progressive took over US education, we now have the worst educational system in the civilized world, happily graduating morons like Deany.

    The DOE is DOA

    We did just fine, actually exponentially better, prior to 1980 before the education dept started screwing things up. We could end it and homeland security tomorrow and be better off.

    Cutting education means conservatives see it as just another ‘commodity’ to be acquired by those who can afford it. According to conservative dogma, public education is a ‘disincentive’ to hard work and sacrifice. And for those who fail to succeed, their children will go without an education, seen by the right as an acceptable consequence of poverty.
    Please cite where in the Constitution the states are alone mandated to address the issue of public education.

    You should be able to demonstrate some fundamental knowledge of our system of government to be able to vote.

    We have too many American Palestinians with a right of return voting against us.

    You can be a Democrat and vote but you should not be a complete fucking moron and be allowed to vote

    Little known fact....The original name of the DOE was going to be Department of Public Education.

    For once, we almost got truth in advertising from the bureaucrats.
