    I think that they are part of the problem and part of the solution.

    If that is what you think.

    I thought the quote I posted was appropriate to what else had been posted.
    In fact, I think I would trust the "lies & damned lies" more than some of the "statistics" I have seen here.

    But hey, if you feel better condemning the trivia so be it.
    But compared to what really matters in life, isn't this whole line of conversation trivia??

    Maybe so...especially if one is living off of the government, or expects the government to fix all of our problems.....

    Are you certain the dream of communists is the "withering away of the state"? Over my lifetime I've seen the opposite view in communist states. The state control of all things is the ideal condition in the communist view.

    when do you suppose they would get around to it?-Paul

    Attitudes like your's are one of the main reasons I got the heck out of CT in the mid 90's. Do you remember the stupid court decision that said that although Hartford or East Hartford (can't remember which) spent more per student on education than the surrounding areas, they were denied equal education vs the burbs? They talked about bussing between cities as the solution. I left the state because I no longer had the choice to decide where I wanted to live based on the schools my kids would attend. I don't know how it was ever resolved but I got out of dodge.
