Thats just rhetoric.  Bush is radical blah blah blah.  The original point was credible.  The military voted for Bush and they are the main consituency taking the fallout from this war and bearing its burden. If it passes their muster, then who are you to say that Bush's war is radical and Bush is radical.  Apparently a larger percentage of the American people found Monseniur Kerry to be the more radical candidate because a few million more voters said no to his agenda.

What agenda? He never had any plan but to be against anything the Pres was for.  I'm no fan of Reps or Dems for that matter, but for Christ's sake, give me a choice of candidates to vote for. If you think I should vote for you, tell me what you can  do for me and our country. Don't just tell me that the other guy  is wrong.  Give me an alternative of how things could be under you.  That's all I ask.

Swordfish, you have not added a single word of intelligence to this conversation.  Once again, it is you who assumes that one is a "righty" because they don't agree with your ignorant rantings.  If you have some shred of intellect to add to this conversation, please do.  Until then, go back to thinking of all the ways that you can sound stupid next.

I defame people.  I have yet to try to anything positive or intelligent to anything.  That's not the reason God put me on here.
You must live a sad life then.

I make people cry, because it makes me feel better about myself.

Ok, here's a question for allayas.  Since I seem to hurt people's feelings, I'm willing to become politically correct and compliment everybody.  Is this what you want?  Or can I continue to defame the world, as God has instructed me to?

perversely, maybe we in fact agree, you mention wanting a public school education to offer more of what a private school education does.  i take it you would support vouchers then.  great, i do.  you know funding really isnt an issue. catholic schools in NYC spend 1/3 of what the average public school does and get 30000 times the testing results.  and these arent lily white catholic schools they are some of the most heavily minority populated schools in NY.

no, no freakin' vouchers!  fix the freakin problem!  don't put a bandaide on it and say, "hey, we tried"!!!! because you know what's going to happen???? not everyone will take advantage of it.  not everyone will know how.  not everyone will be able to entirely.

yeah, i'm a communist.  my name is mrs. castro.

call me anything, just don't call me a republican!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

no, seriously, i think the 'no child left behind' law or laws that have been brewing because of this initiative have been wonderful...however, if a law says it's going to do something, it should do it.

to imply 'no child left behind'...i would think they mean ALL CHILDREN will have a chance.

currently, ALL CHILDREN don't have a chance.

we're just looking at another form of what's going on in asia and in europe.  do we want or need a classist society that begs to treat people differently, depending on the side of the tracks where a person has been raised.  aren't we better than that?

i would hope so.  with the needless war, our fleeting manufacturing base, and a number of countless issues this country faces today, do you really think we can afford to be this selective.

let's face it:  rich people aren't having the babies in this country.

Yep, you can curse my momma and call me what you want just don't call me a republican

The law was called leave no child behind not Invent a Miracle.  NCLB has the goal that all kids can learn, but in reality unless you can think of a plan that will eliminate drug abusing parents and the cycle of poverty in general you are never going to make certain that all kids will have a shot.  the world sucks. NCLB in my view makes it a little better by giving kids stuck in bad schools the option to go to a public school that is not failing or to get some tutoring help. it's not going to solve everything, but if you are waiting for a government program to do that you will be waiting a long time indeed.  when you say not everyone will take advantage of it- i say so what!  if some do then we have saved some, which is better than none.  i would rather have a policy that saved those ppl whose only limitation is not having the money to afford a private school than be concerned about fixing every social ill and getting mad about some crack head parents not opening their mailbox to fill out the paperwork to take advantage of a voucher.

The military and others voted for Bush because they figured that voting for someone else wouold make it look like the terrorists won.  It had little to do with their actually believing in his policies.

BTW, Bush was SUNK until 911 happened!  Giulani was an embarrasment as well until 911.
