Okie dokie...

Communism is an economic policy and has nothing to do with the voting process.  Democracy and communism are capable of existing in the same form of government.

Our educational system has failed when there are teachers who do no realize that very basic fact.

show heifer's comment stands.  communism doesn't use voting except as a charade.  there is little difference in the tyranny of democracy and communism.

what are you, a communist or a populist?

The definition of communism has absolutely nothing to do with the voting structures that are popular amongst communist nations.  You are mistaking communism with the actions of various communist nations.  Communism can exist in all forms of government whether that be pure democracy, representative republics, dictatorships, theocracies, etc.

I'm a capitalist that called a teacher out for not knowing the difference between communism and the boogie man.

Ok, by reading her posts she does know the difference. Thats a pretty rude statement, and when you result to insults is a sign that you're running out of facts for your part of the arguement.

what good fortune for government that the people don't think.

the people who cast the votes don't decide an  election, the people who count the votes do.

communism is management of every transaction, even voting, so by definition, there is no decoupling.  one can spout all they want about the "idealism" of communism, but, it's premise is faulty.

I first tell my students they have to be smart enough to USE "google" or they shouldn't use it. (I will translate that for you carl). That means, if all you do is put something in and then puke up what it tells you without knowing what it means, then you are not smart enough to use google.
Second, my comment stands. It was also a reference to another post of mine regarding the health care bill. Sorry that went over your head.
Third, you wouldn't last 3 days in my class.

Knabe: Your are 100% correct in that only the government benefits from people not thinking.  Many people now days just fumble along, happy with what they do have, hoping the gov't will give them what they do not have and want.  I just returned from a trip to our state capitol. I knew what went on, but sheesh, some was so obvious it made ME blush!!
Another thing Knabe, working with high school students has also taught me few know what RESPECT is. I certainly do not expect any from certain folks on here.  Rudeness is just there defense mechanism for when they run out of reasoning.

As I understand it Nebraska is the next"peoples Republic of Boulder" They will welcome you with open arms...if you are pro life...democrat....socialist....and like high property taxes.....and it doesn't hurt to have the iq of a grapefruit. Last I knew Nelson has a brand new stadium in the works for the Cornhusker kick back deal. I assume that Nebraska will soon lead the nation in welfare recepients.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

Just received notice that Michigan's' governor has proclaimed March 20 as Michigan Meat Out day.  Here are a couple of phone numbers to call and complain. 
517.335.7858 or 517373.3400. Please take a few minutes to call and help support our state's second leading industry. Thank you.


Michigan Meatout Day
Whereas, A wholesome diet of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains promotes good health and reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases, which take the lives of approximately 1.3 million Americans each year; and,

Whereas, The number of those who choose to live the lifestyle of a vegan or vegetarian has increased and so has the availability and selection of meat and dairy alternatives in mainstream grocery stores, restaurants, and catering operations; and,

Whereas, Reducing the consumption of meat or not eating meat at all can significantly decrease the exposure to infectious pathogens such as salmonella, E. coli, and campylobacter, which take the lives of several thousand Americans and sicken millions more each year; and,

Whereas, The benefits of a plant-based diet can consist of increased energy levels, lower food budget costs, and simplified food preparation and cleanup; and,

Whereas, It is encouraged that the residents of this state get into the habit of healthy living ,

 

Gov. Granholm is talking about meat, all meat, not pinpointing beef or beef farmers.  Please do not take her statement out of context.  She is not telling people to become vegetarians.  She is speaking concerning our HEALTH, not "health care".

I am sitting here, unable to go to the barn, and check my own cows, since I just had heart cauterisation() surgery performed on Wednesday.  I raise cattle.  I love red meat and eat as much or more beef than anyone I know.  However, I now have a whole new out look on eating healthy.

I also just got "The Lecture" from my Cardiologist about a healthy diet, weight,  and exercise.  A healthy diet and exercise is the only solution to a long life, especially anyone who has an existing health problem.  i.e.  High blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart issues, obesity, and on and on.  Too much in excess in anyones diet , whether it be meat, fat, calores, or liquor is  not considered healthy.  It will "in general" shorten your life.  Fact based on many studies, not fiction.

Please remember one other thing also, when Gov. Granholm recommends eating vegetables, it is one of our fellow farmers who raises those foods, also.

Signed,

A Proud Michigander

This is also what the gov said - Michigan's gov has proclaimed that "reducing the consumption of meat, or not eating meat at all, can significantly decrease exposure to infectious pathogens , such as salmonella, E coli, and campylobacter, which take the lives of several thousand of Americans and sicken millions more each year..."


She is uninformed  and her comments border on stupid. She apparently knows little about food safety and gets pi** poor medical and nutritional advice. She is apparently unaware of the effect of cooking and the fact that other food can present a problem with infection - spinach, peanut butter, sprouts etc? maybe we need a no peanut butter day, no spinach day, no lettuce day, no salsa day....

SEA I am sorry for your health issues but I don't think you can blame beef or meat alone- - the primary issue for most Americans is they are too fat ---> if you are overweight, hypertensive, have insulin resistance, atherosclerosis, increased lipids --- these are all related and multifactorial
