Another example of a school district suffering from the state's socialist effort.

Should be interesting.  Seems like as a country is getting more and more dependent on the government to provide for them.  Self-reliance and capitalism is what made this country great, now it is all about "what is the government going to give me?".  They talk about "equal opportunity", but what they really mean is that they want everyone's path to desired outcome to be equally difficult/easy, that's just not going to happen. 

If you want to live in a better school district, do what it takes to live there. The opportunity is there, it may not be easy, and you may have to work 10 times harder than the next guy to get there, but it is there.

I agree.  It kind of reminds me of those folks that move outside the city limits ("because the taxes are lower"), but then they gripe (I'm really being nice here) every time it rains and their streets flood, because the "city" doesn't do something about the drainage....Duh!  Here's your sign!

As ALWAYS...you get what you pay for.
Sometimes I think the governments are hellbent to create a socialistic society.  If that happens, I'M going to move out of the city.....WAY out!
Go Indians!!!

Better be prepared to move out of the country then.  Our state and federal governments are hard at work on some social engineering of never before seen proportions.  Better pray that neither Dem is elected because our world will, to use the much abused campaign buzzword, 'change'. 

Sadly I don't know that there is a better place to move to.  Other than possibly Australia, I draw a blank.

And now, looking back on the election all these months later, I have to say that the next four years are gonna suck. Alot. A whole lot.
The thing about being an Indian is that you're an Indian, no matter what. It doesn't matter if you play soccer or a tuba, it doesn't matter if you're on the football team or the drill team, it doesn't matter if you lead the cheers or the jeers. You're still part of that "Honor, Pride, & Tradition."

Please!! Obama has done more in his first 100 days that either Bush did in 8 years.  Today's news--the recession is ending (the shortest recession I've ever seen).  Only 21% of Americans admit to being Republican.  Why do you think that is? It's not because the Republicans did such a fine job.  Let's not talk politics on this site--I feel that however you vote is your business and I don't go around cutting down Republicans, but I am sick of your rhetoric about this topic.  Truce, OK, and lets not talk religion or politics.  No one wins when you do.

The honest truth is that Republicans got into this mess by getting away from conservative principles.  Had they stuck to fiscal and social conservative principles they would have done fine.  Like sports teams, sometimes you need to real buttkicking to give yourself a reality check and right the ship.
