Spanish for Kindergarten

For 40 years, people like former Presidents Carter, Reagan, and Bush and former CIA Director Leon Panetta have been advocating for teaching foreign languages beginning in kindergarten. Millions of job seekers are no longer qualified to take jobs that require bilingual skills, yet educators say they are preparing children for future jobs while at the same time refusing to teach foreign languages adequately.

It was Carters decision to give away our strongest aly that is the source of all the trouble. The Shah was relatively progressive towards women and kept religion out of the government

$4.75 for a banana????

I went to a movie theater the other day in Woburn, MA. I saw a banana for sale. I asked about the price they said it was $4.75 for one banana.

My question is, What about the Sherman Anti-Trust Laws?

What about commerce clause?

What about encouraging people to eat healthy?

What about the wasteful food of the entire bananas that could have been consumed a reasonable price?

What about the sign that bans outside food from being brought in and consumed?

Bill Moyer: Nobel Economist Joseph Stiglitz’s Report shows tax system encourages Corporations to invest and create jobs overseas.

We are effectively more of a system of “one vote for one dollar” than we are a democracy where “one person gets one vote”

Universities should run Monetary, Energy and Social policies

I'm aware it sounds a utopia, but imagine ... if all Monetary, Energy and Social policies were created and/or improved by universities staff, the most qualified ones, they would do it for free, for honor, like an ongoing tesis.

Imagine if all the tax money being spent in salaries for politicians (current and old ones still living out of our taxes) , was spent in education intead.

Imagine if lobby, as we saddly know it today, were higly illegal, and higly punishable, how different priorities would be.

Just imagine how different this country could be.

Ferguson? Trayvon? Michael Dunn? Some people just don't get it. Or don't want to get it. I doubt it, but maybe this will help? Share it with those who "don't get it," if you wish...

Cops killing citizens is not about black v. white

Thom, before going too far with the Ferguson cop shooting the kid, check into the police killings in Albuquerque, NM. There were 22 deadly shootings since early 2010; the community finally woke up when cops killed a homeless man who had his back turned while saying "don't shoot", and who was apparently getting his belongings to go with the cops. The killing was filmed on the officer's video lapel camera and was played on TV. It showed how the agressive cops killed this poor man.

Flaring of Natural Gas in the Bakken, Nd.

$100 Million of Natural Gas are being flared (wasted) in North Dakota for the simple economic expediency for recovering the oil, which cannot come up with all of the gas pressure holding it back. Flaring is better than dumping, as CH4 is a strong greenhouse gas and by flaring it you end up with one CO2 and four H2O. That said, the dilemma is this; no adequate pipe lines exist to export the gas and pipelines cost a half million dollars per mile. There are other means though. There are several companies that could consume and export the energy via EHV pow

The GOP war on workers has killed again...

It’s time to stop the conservative's war on working people in America.

Since the birth of our nation, conservatives have always been wary of average working-class Americans having too much political or economic power. John Adams, the second President of the United States and a Federalist (precursor to today’s Republicans), was very wary of the working class, which he referred to as “the rabble.”
