    Fear is a major ingredience in learning, this why drill sargeant act the way they do with young recruites, they've got to to find a way to humble them. American politics have taken away the discipline factor out of our students along with humbleness. Look at the countries that are passing us by, their one advantage is their dicioline. I recommend every class room in America has a security camera, to monitor students and teacher activities. Unly students will be sent home, along With a copy of the video tape to show their parents what they were doing bad, so that the parents
    can correct them, their parent will also receive a copy of class work they will miss so the keep up with the other
    students. Teachers performing poorly on camera, will be written up by their superors. This is the best way to compete again in a global education society. This will take pressure off our individual teachers to go it alone, and incorporate the school and parents to have a direct roll in educating the next generation.

    What is Obama doing? He has done what the Republican want, by making the rich more profittable in any time in history, yet they still are.not hiring. Why isn't Obama pushing infrastructure modernization to the correct. We need to rebuild old America and let the obstructionist repubs stop it when the election is just around the corner.

    The wrong question people are asked is: Are you better off now than you were three and half years ago: It is totally a misleading question. The right question should be: Are you feeling that you are heading to the right way, after the economic mess of 2008?. Everyone knows that the economy was crashed into pieces in 2008. Someone came along and rescued it, and that was Pres. Obama. Majority feel we are heading to the right path than we felt in in 2008.

    Who cares what kind of garbage the Sunday propaganda shows are airing? There's little to no truth there, probably because the GOBP cult liars outnumber the rest by about 2 or 3-1.
