While America horses around with corporate ideas thanks to Bill Gates and the rapidly turning into a republican Obama, Finland has a different approach.



The brainy questions on Finland’s only high-stakes standardized test

Why Are Finland's Schools Successful? | Innovation | Smithsonian
This explains why so many Fins dominate the fields of science, medicine, technology, business, art and oh, wait, they don't! But at least their overpaid and unionized teachers are proud of their accomplishments, whatever they are.

Moving along now back to Reality . . .

It actually sounds quite refreshing. But keep in mind it's not that WE want to do that, Wally actually said it was self induced;

You are forgetting the Democrat smear machine and their media enablers are perfectly comfortable with lies like "Romney killed my wife" and "it is Bristol's baby" but an obvious jest is trumpeted as an example of the Wright's hate.

I cant get over some vitriol spilled my way as if I am a child molester because I vote a different way than some people. As stated the outrage from modern-republican individuals at times seems as the righteous outrage one displays toward a despot or national enemy. It rocks me sometimes. And I believe it is very dangerous.

Besides, Larry said Republican, not conservative. Conservatives tell me there is a difference sometimes.
With this group we have in DC right now, I sometimes am ashamed to admit I'm a Republican. But as bad as I have it, you guys have Pelosi and Reid to put up with.

Takes a bit of self-determination to become a conservative, and sharp rocks. Also forwarding every monorinc right-wing chain letter and Facebook post ever is a good supplemental.

Pardon me, but the boys and girls were talking about a liberal bashing HIS OWN brains out on a rock. Now THAT is funny.
