I like the idea of privatzing schools. I don't like the idea of redistributing personal wealth to corporations which is really just redistributing wealth to shareholders.


You don't like the idea of redistributing itself or redistributing to shareholders?

I personally don't have a problem with the idea of redistribution of wealth, I do have a problem with it via government.

I guess we could make these corporations non-profit but that has it's own set of problems.

Generally don't like redistribution of wealth but realize unfettered capitalism that shuns all redistribution is problematic. We do need a little socialism.

As long as we have laws that require kids go to school, the public is going to pay for schools ether directly or through tax dollars. Let's use some of that money towards private schools but leave it up to the schools to figure out how to make a profit.

I dont know if I would consider "children arent starving" to mean "poverty is solved"

Here is a good look into poverty in america- http://www.bbc.co.uk...gazine-21636723

Agree with this 100%. And while some have trouble admitting it, the arguments between conservatives and liberals regarding economic policy mostly boil down to how much socialism should there be.

That's why the inheritance limit would be so high. Plenty of money to support generations of a family.

So what is the solution?

Put all the money on a pile and divy it up equally.

Raise minimum wage to an actual liveable wage would be a good start.

Are you projecting? Because you certainly arent reading.

But dont worry about it, I'm sure you understand everything there is to know about poverty.

We had welding, cabinetmaking/ carpentry, ceramics/ pottery classes at AHS.

The hippies took full advantage of the pottery classes, and are now in the RiverArts district making the poo out of some vases and bowls, and seem to making a damn good living off of it.

The suburban HS I went to outside of Asheville had the tractor/ Diesel engine repair classes, as well as agri/horticulture classes that helped students go that route if they wanted to. Most did because they were already knowledgable in farming given 80% (estimate) were raised on the farm.

I believe both schools were doing the right thing by giving students the opportunity to further their education in subjects they were already efficient at. Both had their AP Honors classes for the gifted folk. So all in all everyone had the choice of how they wanted to spend their HS years.

I see that Panthro is still pissed that his below average intelligence and marginal work ethic have not garnered him one of those high paying executive jobs.


upon seeing what "below average and intelligence and marginal work ethic" have done for you, i can't say that i blame him
