To us Virginians who are also parents, may Bob Mcdonnell fall off a bridge : http://www.wavy.com/dpp/news/virginia/public-schools-face-%24731-mi...

Cause we aren't behind other countries enough in education, lets cut millions of dollars in the single most important factor that helps countries thrive and progress.

I love you guys but I have to leave this group. I have moved from Virginia and I have too many groups anyway. Maybe I'll join back again in the future. Virginians are very nice people.

Voices of Reason - Lauri Lebo: Denying Darwin: A Discussion of Faith, Science and Deception in America
Sunday, July 12th 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

As a local reporter, who witnessed what played out in her community from the front lines, Lebo discusses much of the behind-the-scenes elements of the first constitutional test of intelligent design in the historic First Amendment case of Kitzmiller v. Dover. She explores both the history and future of religiously motivated attacks on evolution and science education. She also relates how this issue has become so divisive, not only to the town of Dover, but to our whole nation. And, within her own family.

Along the way, Lebo also reveals the dishonesty of the anti-evolution movement and the people who were Lying for Jesus.

RSVP to mhensley@centerforinquiry.net or 202-546-2332.

Public: $6; Free to the Friends of the Center.

But then we'd live in a democracy, and nobody wants that...

Why have parties at all, is what I am saying, everyone should be able to vote for whomever they see as best to fit that position, regardless of what arbitrary title or faction they are in.
Comment by Aiden on June 9, 2009 at 7:42pm
The point of registering with one party is to be able to select who represents your party in opposition to the other party. However, I refuse to play this 2-party b.s. and choose to be registered as an Independent. However, I have given some thought to registering as a republican just so I can do my part to muck up their primaries.

I now understand that, and dislike politics even more...I do not recall checking a box saying I am a libertarian, and did not know you could only vote for 1 side or the other...far cry from democracy...

How is the majority suppose to elect the leaders, when they do not have someone to elect?
