    Well, I would hope that mookie would know that I was kidding, especially given that someone should know better than to be serious like that when talking to him and the pictures he's put up of him and his family in the expose yourself threads.

      If a teaching degree is so important, why allow the exception for a master's in the specific field (economics, in my friend's case)? Do they really think that someone with a master's in economics has that much better of a grasp of the concepts in a high school economics textbook than someone with an MBA?

And while you're at it, why not quantify "many" in reference to those states and let us know which states they are and give some comparative data to show they're doing a worse job than, say, Chicago Public Schools.
        You mean like you've linked to econometric studies showing that inner-city school performance is driven primarily by ethnicity, controlling for income, single parents, teacher quality, and everything else?

        You know what you can do with your snarky suggestions of racism, right?
        Back off and let your words speak for themselves? Be more explicit? Acknowledge that it's a generational thing that will only pass with time? What?

        Why don't you figure out whichever would most effectively make you feel like a victim, and then just pretend that I did it and post your response. I don't have the patience to play slappyfest with you.

          Nor I. If you *******s weren't able to impute racism to anyone who disagrees with you about anything, you'd be rendered mute.

            And if you fascist right wing pigs could stop being racists, us *******s would come up with something new. But why change when it's fact

            You should probably head outside for a while and make sure your local cops are stopping all the dark skinned people and asking for papers.

                Why wait for the cops? Just shoot the darkies and say you were "standing your ground."

                  I suppose one by one all the ladies in the chorale are going to jump in here, to show the rest of us how "thoughtful" they are.

                      Donald Trump for Romney:

                      Conservatives are starting to question the Romney campaign’s association with Donald Trump, the reality TV star who in recent days has ramped up his claims that President Obama was born in Kenya. Mitt Romney is holding a fundraiser with Trump next month, and his advisers have defended the event by insisting that “a candidate can’t be responsible for everything that their supporters say.” They insist that the former Massachusetts governor “accepts the fact that [Obama] was born in Hawaii.”

                      But the campaign’s wink and nod to the birther crowd is unmistakable and this morning, during an appearance on ABC’s This Week, columnist George Will slammed Romney for sharing a stage with the self-promoting businessman. Describing Trump as a ”bloviating ignoramus,” Will said, “I do not understand the cost benefit here. The costs are clear. The benefit — what voter is gonna vote for him [Romney] because he is seen with Donald Trump? The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious it seems to me”:

                      WILL: Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics. Again, I don’t understand the benefit. What is Romney seeking?

                          Will is right. Trump is a clown. But didn't His Oneness fob himself off as having been born in Kenya? Maybe he's only 1/32 Kenyan.

                          Are the first two graphs of your post a quote from somewhere? Because if they are they're unattributed, as is customary with you. You really ought to cut that sh*t out.
