    Didn’t there used to be something known as compassionate conservatism?

    No group has misused and perverted the teachings of Christ more than the Christian conservatives and right-wingers.

    It's rare now. The irony is that its the ones who can't separate their religion from their politics who end up betraying their religion WITH their politics.

    Don’t mention that the vast majority of those kids are there trying to get an education in less than perfect circumstances. The possibility that they’re not just waiting to have 6 welfare babies and trying to better themselves might blow R’s mind.

    Then you support school choice. Under school choice that could happen.

    Re: Trump

    There are levels of school choice, some mobility from public to public is one level, in district charters schools is another, out of district charters another and vouchers usable for private schools is another.

    In some districts in Mass, there are provisions to have kids attend in the town where the parent works in the schools.

    For me, it's Mexican food (good, cheap, 24-hrs), and lanesplitting. I used to miss the donuts, when all I could find here was Dunkin, but I found good cider donuts, so I'm good now on that.

    I was horrified that our friends now say I married a racist, homophobic, misogynist, horrible man. My Facebook page is just cancer, people hating on each other. I wont be voting for a party that accuses everybody of being racist. This sounds very similar to what you're doing.

    No, you didn't. You 'backed it up' with an conspiracy theory and I wrote a lengthy reply summarizing why that you seem to have ignored.

    Ok, so if you'll believe all that, will you also accept that the Reagan administration indirectly sold crack cocaine to predominantly poor black Americans to fund an off-the-books regime change, while increasing the sentencing disproportionately compared to the powder cocaine his white peers were using?

    Because that's even more recent than LBJ. And it has factual elements.

    Re: Trump

    I always said happy holidays as a kid cuz in grade school u were off from school and saying happy holidays was a lazy way of covering Christmas and New Years. It’s absurd that it has become what it has. Also how the people who have a hair across their ass on that topic find their preference to be more important than others preferred, because really that’s all it comes down to. Call it being offended by others being offended or whatever.

    The only people that are upset by the words “happy holidays” are those looking to be offended.
