My sister is a teach so I could get smacked for agreeing here but yeah! Other public positions require you get the job done however it evolves, fire, police, public works, etc but I am getting tired of many teachers protesting. My first boss said 'this is your job, if you don't like it you can get another job.' Simple!

Check out this debate - I agree Pittsburgh would be a great spot and help the city but @Ladybug has a point about the benefits of moving to less advantaged areas...

@farsighted do you really think that a massive decline in federal spending is coming purely based on our current debt and that the DC area is that dependent on federal spending. I don't have the answer to the 2nd part but seriously doubt an economy disrupting cut in spending is around the corner, cuts yes but not massive

Agree Kaja! I wouldn't suggest racism is behind us, pray one day it will be. But the term reverse racism has always bothered me b/c racism is racism and exists on all fronts. Recently learned that the Cherokee Indians owned slaves.

just watched the video @FearBuzz thanks for sharing hadn't seen that b4. Here is a snapshot of what he said: Don Lemon asked: Do you think race has anything to do with inequality? “Today?” Freeman answered. “No. … You and I, we’re proof.” “Why would race have anything to do with it?” he added. “Put your mind to what you want to do and go for that. It’s kind of like religion to me—it’s a good excuse for not getting there.” After a few more questions from Lemon, Freeman finished with a final thought. “Making [race] a bigger issue than it needs to be is the problem here.”

"What if there were no national borders" article, will never happen but some interesting data: "Moreover, even today, about 97 percent of the world’s people live in the country where they were born.

That’s hardly an indication of globalization sweeping the world."

Gotta tell ya Chaplain I'm a hardcore libertarian and started off not liking Trump at all and Hillary even less but he's grown on me (aside from the childish tweeting and thin skin) in terms of brashness and ability to play the media like stringed buffoons. The other thing that I wish more folks noticed is the Trump presidency is showing the hypocrisy of all sides: when Obama ran he told Romney the 80's called and want their diplomacy back because Romney said the Russians were a threat, now the Democrats say Russia is a threat. When Obama ran up deficits the Dems said nothing, now Trump runs them up and it's the end of times. Someone else there pointed out that when Obama used facebook data he was praised, now it's evil...
