Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

OEH, I guess you're right. We should spend less, keep the same ol' high school teachers that aren't getting the job done and hold ourselves to an overall lower standard. What would you suggest ol' omniscient one? How are we going to imrpove such things without a little spending?

Are you this difficult all the time. WE SPEND MORE THEN ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EDUCATION BY FAR. Maybe just Maybe we should rethink how we do things.
Planning, restructuring, etc. etc. do not come free of cost. Regardless of whether ten years from now were are spending more than we are now, initially we'll have to, even if it is just in the planning. Also, I agree that we should rethink the way we do things, instead of having every student have a computer and things like that, maybe we should have more highly qualified HS teachers (masters a requirement?) or something like that.

I work with a few guys here that are Indian. Most have advanced degrees from India. We have a program here where you can earn an MBA at WAke on the company dime and all of them have taken advantage of it. The differences they see are number of hours attended in school here vs where they lived formerly. They even had school on Saturdays. That is my experience with my relatives in Spain they had similiar long hours at school. What he told me what was most important was parental involvement in the child, maybe people should invest more times with their kids doing schoolwork and other activities then running out to the mall or doing something else on a whim and expect the school to do all the work.

2) anti-gun: Stricter gun control? Less buying on impulse? Buying fewer guns over shorter time period? Probably yes, yes, yes. Coming to your house and taking your guns away? Get real
You "get real". The fact that you're so smitten with this guy coupled with your youth leads you to make idiotic statements like the ones above. You may have intelligence but little wisdom. Freedoms are never taken away all at once...that causes riot/revolution. Taken away incrementally though rarely results in anything from the ignorant masses other than conformity. You should Thank God that vigilant organizations like the NRA are looking out for YOUR RIGHTS and that most members here are not so gullible as you. Maybe "they" won't come to your house to take guns away during an Obama presidency, but ANY stricter gun controls is just one more step closer to that and once you start moving in that direction it's hard to turn around. Wake up.

3) Pro-socialism: Obama's beliefs are fundamentally democratic. 8 years of bushonomics seem to have made people forget this and throw the socialist label at Obama.
Taking from some to give to others may seem fair in your guilded world but it smacks of socialism. When/If wisdom replaces your immature yet enthusiastic perspective on life, you'll hopefully see the error of your current viewpoints.

Oh by the way, I did find the whole bit about "Joe the plumber" rather amusing last night. I sure wish someone had a sense of humor with the debate coverage and cut away from the debate to show "Joe the plumber" hard at work in Ohio under someones sink with his butt crack flashing the entire nation. Now that would have been the highlight of the debate in my opinion!!

I watched most ofthe debateand was rather bored with both of them. I'm tired of the whole thing.I will still vote for McCain. Where the polls sit right now, I'm not sure McCain can pull this out. I can only hope and vote. No matter which one wins, the sucker better get in there and do something. They both keep preaching change and that things are going to be better with them as president. If it doesn't change, AND get better, QUICK, that president is going to deal with an America that is fed the $%&* up! For all our sakes Dems, and Republicans, lets hope good, real change is near for our great country!!

I heard on talk radio this a.m. that (apparently) "Joe the Plumber" is not even registered and therefore can't vote this time. PRICELESS.

I believe the single most important thing that hurt the Republican party (other than not sticking to it's conservative values) is that there were just so many hats in the ring for POTUS at the start. I truly believe the party was split so badly from the start with so many canidates it could not recover. Also, has ANYONE seen a younger Republican canidate lately ?Irregardless ... Vote McCain /Palin.

AlaskaMagnum, maybe you weren't as right as you thought about McCain's demeanor turning off undecided voters.

A Politico/Insider Advantage debate poll of undecided independents found that McCain won, 50%-41%.
