    in Politics

    The rollout of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new book, “Hard Choices,” as a prelude to a possible 2016 run for the White House, has had all the subtlety of a military operation ramping up to full speed: the leak of the Benghazi chapter to Politico late last month , the cover story in the latest issue of People magazine, the wall-to-wall lineup of television interviews this week, a grueling cross-country book tour.New York Times Book Review

    Peter Zucker @ the Chalk Face

    in Politics

    8.10.14: You may know Mr. Zucker better from his blog South Bronx School. He has a pretty compelling tale up on his website about the necessity of tenure for professional educators. Notwithstanding our various ideological debates on education reform, who's right, who's wrong, and who's potentially racist or sexist, there are people out there in a lot of pain because they tried to do what's right. We need to emphasize and find ways to support our fellow educators. Remember, no activist, wonk, or pundit would have anything without the tireless efforts of the classroom teachers.

    Jo Comerford-National Priorities Project--The Sequestration Debacle-There's Plenty Of Money Availabl

    in Finance

    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents

    Today was a first on FSN, our guest ended the interview early. Perhaps I was a bit too aggressive, but when someone tells me that we're not spending enough money on education or health or a myriad of other federal programs, I guess I go into overdrive. Ms. Comerford is a very sincere policy wonk. She believes that government programs like home heating assistance are beneficial and help people. She also believes that we're not spending enough on programs like Head Start and other well intentioned intiatives and she feels that there's plenty of moneyavailable for them. I challenged her on these points and she beat a hasty retreat. You decide who has the better argument.
