Re: OT-for all of the REPUBLICANS on the board
Are you referring to the "School Vouchers" that have been mentioned? If so, I think they're a great idea. It's about time the public school system started measuring up to the private sector, and it's also high time WE had a choice in the matter, since it's OUR money.
Eventually the world will run out. I think we should be using our own oil, at least partially, so we aren't completely at the whim of OPEC. Look what's happened in the last 2 years, the price of gasoline has risen 80%! Why? Because OPEC owners weren't making enough money, so they decided to do something about it. Meanwhile old folks up here are freezing to death and others have to choose between heat and food. Yes, I know people that have been adversely affected, they (as a couple) make $12,000 a year (I did their taxes), and this region of Maine is so impoverished $6.50 an hour is considered a "good" wage. Yes, there are "credits", "programs", and "help", but they get it out of you one way or another, it isn't free.
