My goodness, multiple cats? You might as well surrender to Al-Quaeda right now, bub.
The evidence right now is that having a great flagship university correlates with weak support for broad public education. There could be purely external reasons for this, of course, to do with internal politics in the series of states that once committed to internationally great public universities.
I think this is a great topic to explore, but I think it would require some hard evidence. I don't trust my anecdotal feelings on the subject (nor anyone's). I need a research University Department to answer my questions with studies darn it!
Yes, this is snark, but not really that far from suggesting poor people make neighborhoods bad, as opposed to bad neighborhoods are the ones cheap enough for poor people to afford them.
Of course poor people make neighborhoods bad;
It's not a coincidence that if home values start to fall and poor people start to move into a neighborhood, the rich folks pull up stakes and leave.
Poor people presumably don't choose to be poor.
Boorish ambulatory cancers with money, though ... were you born that way, GF, or did it just happen over time?
Wealthy people want housing that they can afford also, commensurate with their wealth.
It is, however, a moral failing on their part.
I think I now loathe rich people more than I already did.
It's why I don't have any problem with creating a safety net to care for them; as a general rule I don't believe people wind up poor because of laziness or character flaws.
And ... uh (looking around a bit nervously) ... what is your line for "Rich"? Are we talking income or wealth?
Syria has destroyed or rendered inoperable all of its declared chemical weapons production and mixing facilities, meeting a major deadline in an ambitious disarmament program, the international chemical weapons watchdog said Thursday.
I am not saying the Obama administration handled the whole thing in an elegant fashion, and lord knows I have been critical of some of their foreign policies, but it sure looks like this Obama Failure is going better than many W administration successes.
Wow the end result of the Syrian mess sure has been a trainwreck, huh?

So Obama came up with a stupid policy, tried hard to enact said stupid policy, failed, and finally had a Russian dictator force him to adopt a non-stupid policy. Smart diplomacy.
and in a tiny apartment on the wrong side of the tracks in Great Neck.
you just do these periodic and moronic hit and runs.
I was barefoot and scrawny, but eventually I grew up to be David Eckstein.
Still light years better than what Dubya would have done- or what the chicken hawks wanted/still want him to do.
You are right, he did something stupid (declaring a line an all that), seemed to be doubling down on that, but when he saw a way out he took it instead of pounding his face against a wall in a misguided effort to save it.
Just because you and all the other Obama supporters around here scurried away like rats under a flashlight during that time doesn't mean that nobody was paying any attention to what was going on.
It's good that Obama got lucky, but hoping for lucky breaks does not a good foreign policy make.
Meanwhile, that civil war is still going on, and nobody has the first clue as to exactly how it's going to end up.
"Luck is the residue of design"
Sure I admit he was wrong, but he was willing to stop and rethink, not keep going like certain presidents full of insecure bravado would have done. And to an extent all is well that ends well.
We would cut a baseball GM no slack for that
It's good that it happened, but let's not pretend it was something more than what it was.
Yes, he meant for congress, the UN, and the rest of the world to shoot down his "Bombs away!" plan, whereupon he would then allow Putin to humiliate him.
I admit I'm biased, but to me "he was wrong, but he was willing to stop and rethink, not keep going" beats "he was wrong, but Dick Cheney wouldn't hear of his doing anything else, so that was that."
Well if you ignore the facts that:
1: Congress hadn't shot his "bombs away" plan down, maybe they would have, but that was by no means certain.
2: In the end he wasn't going to pay the UN any more attention than any POTUS would
3: He was only "humiliated" by Putin the minds of neo-cons and knuckle dragging devolutes like October Natitude.
then yes, yours is a statement I can fully agree with.
knuckle dragging devolutes like October Natitude
Not your best "fact-checking," Johnny.
Dunno, maybe there's an innocent explanation but I can't think of anything remotely similar in Canadian politics. (Plenty of corruption stories over the years in Canadian municipal politics, but this isn't the same kind of thing)
He didn't "stop and rethink"; he was essentially cut off at the knees by Congress and outflanked by Putin. Embarrassments both coming and going.
Uh-oh. This is the sort of thing that makes Baby Szym cry, you know.
I've actually made an effort to be polite to (or ignore) certain posters I haven't always been polite to, but you know, there are limits, I'll ignore JoeyB, but I'll be dammed if I'm ever going to be polite to him.
We all know that Obama and Samantha Power and company wanted to tip the scales of the war in favor of the rebels, but the American people (including many of his own supporters) revolted at the idea
My desire to never interact with gef, Joey B, treder, sam, or kevin until the day that I die definitely outweighs my curiosity about just what would make me cry.
It's nice to get lucky once in a while, but smart people recognize the difference between luck and good decision making.
Wait, have you really ignored me this time, or is this just another one of those fits you throw from time to time where you say you ignore me but don't? It's hard to keep up with your tutu's and drama sequences these days.
he fact that Putin came up with a plan that worked isn't evidence of any kind of wise reconsideration on Obama's part; it just means he was lucky somebody who wasn't an idiot was on hand to take over.
And he was particularly humiliated by Great Britain, who openly told him to go f*ck himself in so many words, something which up until then they had never done to an American president since we became a global superpower.
It's hard to keep up with your tutu's
So this is the sort of thing you care about? I'd rather be poor than have your traits.
The Dittohead Right always gets a little "faggy", for lack of a better term
Instead they've said, we're publishing a special edition (free of charge no less) on the whole Ford situation. 28 pages.
You found Thatcher arousing, Mouse?
I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.
I was speaking of how authoritarians are aroused by power. I am not one, but back in the day many conservatives were quite enamoured with the "Iron Lady" as they are today by Putin. It is power based, not gender specific.
People on the right sure get off on the idea of humiliating Obama. I wonder what that's about.
Rightist nerds swooning over Sarah Palin is a more recent arresting example
She was, to some, prime MILF material.
True, but there's a difference between laughing at Bush for choking on a pretzel
You could even include the "Mission Accomplished" photo op that backfired for years.
