The GOP tried to sink Obama. Instead, the party imploded
Exactly right......great article! Finally someone cuts to the chase about why the Republican Party destroyed itself. And at the heart of it is racism, the same racism this creepy conservative generation of Baby Boomers adopted from their parents years ago.

Its sad that this generation has imploded so, even destroying America for their own selfish greed and bigotry. Because if the GOP had decided in 2008 they could have worked with President Obama to create a better America, they might have gotten the balanced budgets and tax breaks they wanted. Obama was not a radical leftist. He was and is very much a centrist President. But the ignorant and uneducated Baby Boomer generation and their radical conservative hatred of minorities and government  itself is what doomed them to the dust bins of history, finally.

After Trump loses in November they will have to now radically alter their whole view of race relations, budgets, taxes, and public policy from a sane and balanced and inclusive point of view or the Millennial Generation will never vote another Republican President into office even again. Good bye Tea Party!

9 Out Of 10 Parents Think Their Kids Are On Grade Level. It's interesting, because Americans assume all our kids are "normal" and there is a normal, when half of white kids, according to the article aren't even performing at grade level in both math and reading.

Special needs kids are by design farther behind. So how can anyone assume there is a "normal" for them when most of these kids aren't even performing.

This is why the understanding and expectations of American kids and their education is warped, especially when we know now that good grades and degrees are not barometers for success in capitalistic societies. I.e. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs didn't finish college and were top innovators.

What we need is to measure kids against their own abilities and talents not nationalized testing scores. We then can build measures of performance against the child's expectations. Special needs kids by default are given this set of goals in IEP's, but so-called neurotypical kids, most which aren't performing typically anyway according to this article, are not and should be. Add to that the fact companies are now hiring more on experience and talent than grades and degrees and we have a flip flopped broken society.

It's why the old educational standards and expectations are really bogus.

At Austin event, Mark Cuban calls Ted Cruz ‘worst politician in Texas’ -- Thank you Mark! We agree, but worst politician in the world is more appropriate.

If US Corporations and the rich paid the taxes they were supposed to we would have more than enough money to pay off the debt and afford minimum income for everyone.

"Hatch also had this to say of Cruz: 'It's always helpful when you admit you're wrong.'" lol. Let's see if Ted is man enough to also admit that it was a mistake and un-American for him to almost cause the United States to default......I doubt it.

Senator Ted Cruz has done NOTHING for the 1 in 4 children living in dire poverty in his home state of Texas. He is completely owned by super PACS in Washington, stands by the bigoted wealthy Texas Tea Party, and hated by all his fellow Congressman in both House and Senate. Now we find out he is bought by Investment Banks and even his fellow libertarians are worried about that fact...

Sanders smokes Trump in a general election +6 points. Clinton beats him about +3 points. The GOP keeps shooting themselves in the foot with their bipolar view that they can keep poor republican voters happy with policies that only support the rich and the radically religious. Trump is a symbol of that internal conflict.....
