Envy will get you nowhere. She was in the Air Force, not the Army, and they don't exist to get you freebies. Punishing success must seem easier than doing something yourselves. Try Cuba.

Re: “Got a Bachelor's Degree? There May Be a Public School Teaching Job Waiting For You.

Fantastic. Nothing against our many wonderful teachers, but lots of professionals I know could teach better than many of the teachers I've met. I'm not sure what they teach in all those teaching classes, but most of it seems to have little or no practical application. I think it's just to get a fancy degree so everyone can feel good about themselves.
Mostly what's required is intelligence, patience, a willingness to learn, and a love of children - all attributes that education students typically possess. Oh, and it helps to know the subject you're teaching, something most education graduates don't.
Professionals could also bring some real world experience into the classroom which would be interesting to students.

Re: “AP: McSally Urges Colleagues To Vote for This 'Fucking Thing,' aka Zombie Trumpcare

Let's get a few things straight. This was not a HEALTH BILL. This was purely a tax cut for the bloodsuckers of this Country who are already filthy rich and never seem to be satisfied with what they have. A $350 Billion tax cut that leaves the most vulnerable people in this society at risk of no or inadequate health care. What kind of "CHRISTIAN" or "JEW" that has any moral compass whatsoever is o.k. with taking away health care from children, from the elderly, from the sickest people in this Country in order to buy more shit that they donl;t need. I hope, that if there is a God that they somehow choke on their greed. As for McSally; she's nothing but a whore for the Koch Brothers who have financed each of her campaigns. Here's my question for you Martha. You claim to have been a pilot and officer in the air force. Tell me something. What is it that you think the purpose of an Army is for our Country? Is it something that exists in order to fuck over the very people you are supposed to "PROTECT"? If its possible to have any emotion at all for you and your ilk in the Republican Party...this morning you ought to feel SHAME above all other feelings.

Oh no, they're taking our Subsidies, aka free stuff.
Everyone wants them some of that free stuff. You know who can afford healthcare? Doctors, nurses, radiologists, etc. You know who can't? People with no skills, ambition, or work ethic.

Re: “Got a Bachelor's Degree? There May Be a Public School Teaching Job Waiting For You.

Studies of long term substitutes show academic gains identical to regular teachers.

Stunningly, the coefficient on a master's degree in education is negative, meaning that the students of teachers with masters degrees have lower academic gains than teachers with just a bachelor's degree.

Subject knowledge is the factor most strongly correlated with academic gains of students.

Six months into the job, only 25% of teachers rate the quality of their bachelor's degree preparation excellent.

A culture of continuous improvement is completely absent from our colleges of education.

We can come back 20 years from now and that number might even be lower.

You and your culture had its chance David.

McSally, voted correctly.

Their are No Congressmen-Congresswomen who have Obama Care that have publicly announced it.. If your so uppity on how good Obama Care is, ARE YOU ON IT? ARE your State and Federal Congress Representatives have Obama Care? If not WHY?

Deaths perpetrated by the state, wrapped in the guise of the law, designed to enrich the rich and eliminate the weak and poor, declared a mandate from the people by the politicians pretending to act upon the will of the people is still murder.

Scumbag. She flew an airforce airplane, big wow - the bus drivers in Tucson face more hostility than she ever did. Silver spoon scumbag. Happy to kill poor people after making sure they suffer long, while she brown-noses her wealthy overlords.

Oh goody, goody, I am resting so much easier knowing states get to legislate what constitutes a pre-existing condition! I'm sure they will be conditions and diseases that affect mostly men. Way to go McWorthless, you've put many women in danger.

Re: “AP: McSally Urges Colleagues To Vote for This 'Fucking Thing,' aka Zombie Trumpcare

AZM- Nancy Pelosi does not want Single Payer in the democratic platform as she believes it will not work. But once the dust settles ask yourself this...

If we reformed health care to lower costs, what did the doctors and the hospitals and the pharmaceuticals give up?

The answer is nothing. If they were allowed to access single payer they would surely bankrupt our country.

She got to sponsor the bill to eliminate the special treatment for Congresspersons and their staffs. It passed unanimously. The leadership assigned that privilege to the most vulnerable Republican so she could show how tough she is. They let McSally sponsor the amendment.

I am not sure what you guys want. The insurance companies have all but pulled out because of their losses. The new plan allows for a 9B$ fund to help low income pay the premium, along with tax credits, and tax credits for those earning under $75K. States will be able to legislate pre existing coverage.

My health insurance rates tripled under Obama. I am hopeful that this puts them back where they were.
