- POTUS, SotU 2014
This is so important, but education should fuel innovation and imagination, instead of just testing, as well…
- POTUS, SotU 2014
Have been asking for this since early 2000s. Please let this become a reality, because this is the biggest issue we have with jobs in this country.
Delivered in the House chamber on Tuesday.
Here’s the full speech. Follow along at home, yo.
Obama is going to announce retirement accounts.
It’s shit like this that makes me side-eye him. Doing so will give the GOP a blank check to completely raid a fully funded Social Security system and, in my lifetime, 90% of seniors will again die in poverty because of it.
I don’t care if you say this is in addition to Social Security NOW. It’s what will happen in a few years - once it’s the acceptable norm.
We have “retirement” accounts. It’s called Social Security. Period.
Good God, Democrats do NOT bring POTUS on the campaign trail with you if this is what he’s going to propose.
Is he seriously going to do this during the MIDTERM Election Year?
If so, Christ we’re fucked, because to some extent he’s mitigating the minimum wage issue.
Please tell me someone is trolling CNN. Please.

It’s sad that this makes my heart hurt, that Dru has to do this, but I am so glad that she did!
Democratic Candidate for Governor of Texas
There’s a special place in hell for the Palins. It’s the only thing I can honestly believe in order to function in professional politics.
I REALLY wish that Senator Davis could ignore Bristol because all this is, is a publicity stunt by the younger Palin.
Someone needs to give Bristol a dictionary and possibly a class in human anatomy, maybe even a proper health care class. Bristol Palin is one if the best examples of what comes of not teaching proper sex education in school. Not only because she was a pregnant teenager but because she doesn’t understand the difference between a fetus and a “baby”.
More than that, she’s a perfect symbol of the Tea Party: privileged, clueless, rabid, and unfeeling.
The sad fact remains that according to Republicans, Senator Davis is a slut who got knocked up and dared to finish her education and be independent. Bristol Palin is a God-fearing, righteous mother who is unfairly attacked by “liberals”.
To her, I ask: “Hey, Bristol? How’s that educational thing working out for you?”
