Ironic supporters of anyone on Atlas are annoying, but I am neutral on Trump supporters because I am weighing whether I want to vote for him or not. We need a guy to get tough on the illegals. But we don't need a complete douche in a toupee. Tough decision.

Weren't you upset because Rand Paul wasn't 100% with Ron Paul, enough so that you were thinking about John Kasich? Do you realize how ridiculous you sound?
I was not angry at Rand Paul for not being Ron Paul. I was angry at Rand Paul for not even being Rand Paul anymore. So I am currently backing Kasich, but I do admire Trump's stance on halting further illegal immigration. Plus Trump's flip flopping makes it more likely that he will govern according to some of my more populist stances, such as support for single payer.

The 2008 recession already accomplished this. In fact, the numbers of illegals present in this country dropped by like 800,000, IIRC.

Can't the country have a common core of standards without running children and teachers through the hoops of continuous exams and standardized tests? I support regulating the content and quality of curricica objectives across the countryit makes sense that all Americans should receive the same standard of education and have a similar basic skill set coming out of school. But why the tests after tests?

In the Ontario public school system we had the following standardized tests:

EQAO Grade 3: Math, Language Arts (no link with final grades)
CCAT Grade 4: Cognitive Abilities (?) (basically to identify gifted students) (no link with final grades)
EQAO Grade 6: Math, Language Arts (no link with final grades)
EQAO Grade 9: Math (score was partly tied with final math mark)
EQAO Grade 10: Literacy (required for graduation)

Teachers even argue that these tests are excessive. I certainly see no reason why any school system would want to have kids do more.

CNN should either modify the criteria have a debate with 11 people. It makes no sense not to invite her.

This is something that could drag the Vienna-VP below the joke-level of 10% in the state election:

Stenzel defects to FP for Vienna election

Quote
Long time VP politician and district chairwoman for Vienna's first district Ursula Stenzel will stand in the upcoming Vienna elections as an independent candidate with the right-wing party FP party, she announced this morning.

At a joint press conference with FP chairman Heinz-Christian Strache, Stenzel said she was standing on the FP candidates list because she wanted to break the red-green dominance, referring to the Social Democratic Party (SP) and Green Party (Die Grnen).

I do this because I would like to break the red-green dominance in Vienna and because I would like to break and I would like to prevent the red-greens in the Innere Stadt, the first district, the centre of Vienna, she said.

Stenzel, a former TV presenter with the ORF, had not been nominated by the VP to stand in the October city elections, with the party choosing politician Markus Figl in July instead.

Stenzel is still district chairwoman for Vienna's first district and she stressed at the press conference that if elected she would stay as district chairwoman.

Now aligning herself with the FP, Stenzel said that she is a signal for the people of Vienna that the FP is selectable and must be.

Since Stenzel was not nominated by the VP for the election, there had been speculation about whether she would run on her own list.

Q7 Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion
of John Kasich?
Favorable 29% ........................................................
Unfavorable 34% ....................................................
Not sure 37% ..................................................

Ouch. RINO syndrome? I really don't understand how Ted Cruz is at 53% favorable and 26% unfavorable while someone like Kasich, who did a great job governing Ohio is getting these numbers.

He had kind words for gays and blacks in his debate. A death kneel.

CNN Interview with Fmr. Governor Gary Locke


1. Recently, a Gallup poll indicated that only 45% of Americans approve of President Obama's job performance, while 49% disapprove. As President, how would a Locke Administration be different than our current one?

2. Recently, a number of terrorist organizations including the ISIL, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, and the Taliban have been active across the Middle East, killing thousands of innocent civilians and terrorizing the region. Do you prefer to identify these terrorist organizations as 'Islamic', or do you wish not to use that term?

3. As President, what actions will you take to fight these groups? Do you believe that putting the lives of American citizens in danger is necessary to stop this threat?

4. If you could have any one new law of your choice come into effect today, what would it be?

5. What is your view on the Iran Deal currently being negotiated by the Obama Administration, and if elected, what would you do to support or oppose it?

6. What do you think the biggest issue currently facing our nation is and as President, what will you do to fix it?

7. Do you support reintroducing Glass-Steagall? Why or why not?

8. Do you support statehood for Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.? Why or why not?

9. What is your view on net neutrality? If elected, what will you do in regard to it?

10. Which of your fellow Democratic primary opponents do you feel agrees with you on the most issues? The least?
_______

NOTE: This is an interview that jojoju1998 asked me to create for his candidate, Gary Locke. If you would like me to do something similar for your candidate, feel free to ask! Smiley
1. I believe that the Frustration is directed at Washington itself. Look, I have been part of Washington. It can work together. But when we have Politicians getting checks from Special Interest Groups, it screws up the process. When I am President, I will get Washington working again, by removing the temptation of Special Interest Groups.

2. There is a difference between these Terrorists, and Hard Working, Tax Paying, and Patriotic Muslim Americans. So by calling these Terorrists ' Islamic ', you are painting with a very broad brush.

3. My Plan which is online will destroy ISIS in 10 years, by having targeted Air Strikes, Removing ISIS's funding, and use small number of troops....... it is a good plan.

4. For a new law..... I think that Replacing The No Child Left Behind Act with a Alternative is a good idea. My Alternative will allow states to take control of our children's education. My Plan has been released online.

5. The Iran Deal is a good deal. The Problem has to do with implementation. And As President, I will implement the deal......  clearly. And If Iran cheats, then Military Action is possible.

6. The Biggest Issue facing our country, is how do we reduce Income Inequality.... So I will work together with Congress to reform Our Tax Code so that it is more fair to our taxpayers. That will reduce Inequality alot.

7. We now live in a 21st Century Economy. It is not 1933 anymore. I do support regulations on big banks..... but it has to fit this new economy we live in.

8. It is the people's choice, I can not say wheter or not they should join the Union, it is their choice.

9. The Internet must be free and fair..... So Yes I support Net Neutrality.

10. All of my colleagues are true Progressives. But I have the knowledge to put progressive ideas into Action....
