their growing control of and attempts to gain more control over governments across the world. Entire nations full of human beings suffer unfathomable pain as a result of their political and monetary greed.

Tens of thousands of children die every single day, from war, starvation, and privation, and millions of human beings die each year all over the world, because of the economic and political power we allow these thugs.

America is getting just a first, very mild taste of what many other nations have been viciously aware of for years.

Military spending distorts our entire economy. Our taxes pay for missiles, drones, bombs, invasions of foreign countries, and interest on loans from China to fund those wars, instead of universal health care, low-cost higher education, public transit and intercity rail, scientific research for civilian purposes, affordable housing, student loan debt relief, etc.

100. Absolutely fair

I hate being lumped in with those who use home schooling as indoctrination camp for their kids.

I did it for the exact opposite reasons. At the time, we lived in Utah. The LDS church is so entwined in the school system, it's organic. There are churches across the street from the schools, and students are allowed out of real class to go to religious classes. The majority of teachers are LDS, and the system just assumes you are as well. When you home school in Utah, you fall into one of two groups - people who are too Mormon (sister wives and all that...) or people who are UN-Mormonized and want their kids to grow up that way. We were the later, and it was the best way to ensure our kids had a secular education.

102. We were scandalous Pagans in the heart of Utah

you either melded into the mainstream, or swam against it.

The church is so much a part of everything there, indoctrination is the norm, and home schooling is for those who want their kids to get a secular education, or for those Mormons who were too hard core for society. There is a small subculture in Utah that are almost Amish in their adherence to Mormonism.

can change the way we view things that we once thought were settled questions.

I loved my years in public school. before I had children, I never thought I would home school. When I moved to Utah (for college and employment) I was unprepared for the experiences my kids would go through in class. I did what I did because it was the best choice for my family, and I have no regrets. I am not a home school advocate, nor a public education critic, nor the reverse of either.

116. yeah?

Well now you sound like a classic homeschooling parent who knows more than the science, math, English , and art teachers, until about grade 7, your education level probably. Then they decide to put their kids back in public school, years behind cause they can't learn algebra at the breakfast table. Then the parents have the nerve to criticise a school's test scores after the school had to test their children who became lazy and ignorant and disobedient for the last 10 years. otherwise the poor children feel ashamed at being behind. Also, their parents then blame their own children for not being interested in homework or learning enough fast enough, so they punish their children, only making matters worse than ever. If your pagan in Utah I sort of don't blame you. But don't say you're an "expert" cause you don't get the whole big picture.

121. Well, your opinion is important to me

so I guess I better straighten up and fly right, eh?



Sorry, couldn't resist, you're so sanctimonious.

You're right - I didn't feel my undergrad degree qualified to educate my sons through the high school level. In fact, as soon as I thought they were old enough to be able to form and answer their own questions about religion, I put them back in public school. My eldest boy graduated with honors in Utah. He married early, and has a son of his own. He's a big guy, with a big laugh. Office job by day, plays guitar in a local band at night. He's happy, so I'm happy. My middle son and I moved to Florida, where he attends a magnate school for the Arts. He graduates this year. Some semesters he gets As, some semesters he gets Cs. I think his grade fluctuations have more to do with girls, and sometimes boys, than with his education. He came out as bi-sexual last year.

I find it funny that you think I don't get the big picture, when you can't even get the little details right. My kids aren't geniuses, nor are they falling behind. They are normal kids. Sometimes they do great, sometime they struggle.

You thought it would be cute to make a joke about home schooled children and their parents being the single greatest challenge to our way of life. I can take the joke, but I won't let the myth stand. People are individuals, and don't fit into your tidy little behavioral packages. As much as you preach about the evils of home schooling, your education does not seem to have provided you with that one simple truth. I may not be an expert (and never claimed to be, either), but it doesn't take an expert to see that those with myopia shouldn't give lessons to others on how to see "the whole big picture."

103. Come on - Home schooling is not evil.

See my post above. There are times when it is the most sane thing a person can do, and the absolute best for the kid as well. You have to work hard at it, but the results depend on the parents and what they are able to offer. Sane and rational parents that care about their children can provide a fine education and social experience if they have the right support from the right community. It's not for everyone. Hell...it's not even for many people. It serves a narrow purpose.

Stupid people who push their beliefs on to their children are not the only people who home school, they're just the ones that get all the damn attention.

They need to have their ill gotten gains taxed down to the point that there is enough for us all. They need to have their billions taxed heavily enough that buying Congressmen is out of their reach. They need to be taxed away from writing sweetheart tax law that makes them richer while starving the government we all rely on for infrastructure.

Democracy can tolerate millionaires, even 100 million millionaires. It cannot continue to coexist with billionaires.

26. Right Wing Nuts

Tea Party, Grover Norquist, The NRA, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News -- People who have no principles and no set of compromise.

There used to be Republicans who believed in compromise.
I think they have gone extinct.

I just caught a glimpse of Dianne Sawyer's, Thursday, interview with John Boehner.

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JOHN BOEHNER: Oh, listen. I think this has been the most mis-reported story of my 2 years as tenure. We don’t have a Tea Party Caucus to speak of in the House – all of us who were elected 2010 were supported by the Tea Party. These are ordinary Americans who’ve taken a more active role in our government, they want solutions – but we’ve all come a long way over the last 2 years, and I think we all understand each other a lot better.

35. Yep

Fox is a product offered to people who have not taken the time to educate themselves and find it easier to own an opinion that they can claim is strong because it involves hate and they have been given bite-size, easily digested and regurgitated pieces of misinformation to defend it.

The political equivalent of a diet of Hot Pockets and Kraft Mac and Cheese. The package says "Chicken, Cheese, Lean, Microwavable" but the list of ingredient is a mile long and should come with biohazard warnings but will never be read, much less scrutinized, by someone whose priorities are Fast and Easy.

39. Undertaxation

Reagan didn't slash taxes on the ultrarich to ulate job creation or economic growth, but to eliminate non-military spending. The current GOP wants the same thing.

When we taxed, and maintained a reasonable deficit by spending on needed projects, everyone benefitted. Government debt is historically the safest of all investments and any good investor has 10 percent of her or his portfolio in it.(Because savings bonds are a form of govt debt, even the most modest savings plan can contain govt debt.) I could go on but you get the picture: the only bad debt is debt you can't easily pay. With proper tax levels the U.S. can afford to grow and improve, raising all our living standards. When taxes are too low, we all suffer. Similarly, when they're too high people suffer, but at a 35 percent top rate we have a long way to go to get to that point,

In my very humble opinion Fox is only a tool the 1 Percenters use to screw with the 99er. The real threat is the 1%.

They have bought the government. Even Obama to a smaller extent. We'll see how small in the next 4 years.

42. Define "American way of life"

it's usually used to refer to America's consumer-driven capitalist culture; suburbs, Wal-Marts, cheap gasoline and driving everywhere. See GHW Bush at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 (focused on action on climate change, sustainable development, etc): "The American way of life is not negotiable."

If that's the "American way of life"...it's doomed. In the short term by rising food and energy prices, in the long term by increasing petroleum scarcity and increasing competition for resources among developed and developing countries.

43. Fox News is America's Radio Rwanda

The seeds of violence have been sown. Democrats in some states are already scared to admit to supporting Obama. I, for one, live in a very red county in Texas and will not put out a sign, will not put a sticker on my car, and am trying not to look too happy when I'm out in public. I know people who have had their property vandalized by Obama haters. If you talk to the RWers, you hear the list of lies they learned from Fox or Limbaugh.

I wish Rachel would do a segment on Radio Rwanda (and the TV equivalent). I think it is a real threat. Just yesterday, DU had a story of a 12-year-old who was hit at school for supporting Obama. We recognize the division, we just don't recognize the true threat of the division. Democrats are becoming the "other".

For those of us who have been watching, we have seen Fox News get worse over time. They are bolder, dirtier. People must learn the history of Radio Rwanda before history repeats itself.

We cannot have a democracy when half of the electorate has a different set of "facts". It ends all meaningful discourse.

to ignore. Think Sandy many times over before we really start to pay attention as a nation. As a close second, I am still worried about terrorism (using nuclear or bio weapons) and hope that we can address this problem not just through homeland security measures (which concern and affect everyone) but through a more even-handed foreign policy that respects and is willing to work with the Muslim/Islamic world (President Obama's and SOS Clinton's approach) versus a strong handed and arrogant policy that falsely equates all Muslims as radicals bent on destroying the U.S.

58. Well, I have an answer

But I think your question needs rephrasing first.

Who here wants "The American Way of Life"? From what I can tell, being a "good american" involves following approved authority's version of reality and getting in trouble if you don't. I like living in a bigger world than the one they want to box us into.

If we can assume you meant "The Greatest Threat to Sane People," I'm going to have to go with Gov't Secrecy. The fact that you can't go to "your Gov't" and get a straight answer is possibly the root cause of all the other symptoms.

There's no transparency, no oversight, and no repercussions for breaking the "law"...because according to them, it never happened, or if it did, there was a good reason for it that they can't tell us.

Daylight would kill this vampire...assuming anyone cared that they were getting their blood sucked out.

66. Any lack of Democratic leadership backbone in fighting "The Economic Royalists"

Dems need to remember who we are and stand up to monied interests. Then start rolling back legislation put into place, beginning with the "Reagan Revolution" which gave the Oligarchs more control over media, made elections more big-money driven, etc.

The Democratic Party needs to reach back to its New Deal roots that prevailed for 45 years. FDR's "I welcome their hatred" speech needs to be familiar not just to Obama, but to national and local legislators, all the way down to citizens. We need to have the backs of Dem leaders on this. And that leaderships needs to call out the opposition any time they distort the truth or gin up any campaign of verbal bullying that originated in the 1990's from Newt and Frank Luntz.

The Democratic Party should never again allow itself to ape the Republican Party in catering to the corporate mentality. This happened partly because Republican legislation made elections more dependent BIG MONEY donations and because the party allowed itself to be defined by GOP bullying. This time around in the presidential election, thank God the difference between the two parties was plenty clear to voters - but mainly because much of America saw the ugly greed and extremism of the GOP. We must also continue to be clear about the ideals and goals of our party being the best for America and its citizens - even best for business, etc.

We must also find a way, as it was happening after the 1960's and into the 1970's, to give Americans a vision of what's important in life. Conspicuous Consumption that was promoted in the 1980's helped pave the way for average citizens to practically worship the rich and to actually believe they are the "job creators." There ultimately needs to be "a true revolution of values" like the one that King spoke of:

“A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. ... A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say, 'This is not just.' It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of South America and say, 'This is not just.' The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just.”

(By the way, the "true revolution of values" must also address what we do about Climate Change.)

Right now Democrats have emerged as the nation's leaders. We have the opportunity to lead this country into a different course than was set in the 1980's. Time to provide the nation with a vision for The Greater Good that rivals and succeeds anything "spiritual" that seemed to be offered by Right Wing Christianity or the Right Wing version of The American Dream ("I'm getting mine and to hell with anyone else").

The ingredient most needed is ignoring bogus ideas from Republicans and maintaining the RESOLVE to LEAD.

(Sorry this is too long, but I couldn't stop once I got going. Our Biggest Threat did not develop overnight.)

I would agree that Fox isn't converting progressives at all. I would say that Fox is taking an inherently influential, conservative, substantial portion of our population and breeding extremism on a scale we have not seen.

How old are you? Do you recall American politics before Fox? I certainly do. Indeed, I would say that the birth of Fox coincides quite nicely with some of the more extreme, "grass roots" movements within the GOP. Yes, there were movements within the GOP before Fox, but not on this scale. Fox is the "times ten" amplifier. In my mind, the Tea Party is actually the "Fox News Party". Fox coopted its viewers and those viewers coopted the GOP. In other words, Fox dictates our political discussion.

The election outcome proves that a candidate can blatantly lie on an unprecedented scale (for modern Presidential Politics) and come within 2.5 percent of victory. A strong candidate that is only slightly more appealing could easily win.

I also recall ignorance and racism existed in our nation wayyyy before 24/7 news and the internets. Ignorance and racism existed wayyyy before Rush Limpbaugh.

The notion FAUX News made millions of people racist that were already racist is nonsense; it's putting the cart before the horse. FAUX and other right wing tee vee/radio are preaching to a choir that was already in place and their advertisers target this demographic; it's not that complicated.

as far as your conclusion FAUX "dictates our political discussion", please speak for yourself. while you're wasting your time giving credence to the nonsense on FAUX (and I assume other right wing channels), the business of our nation goes on. Our nation's business is impacted/affected by numerous things day to day. there's just no proof one single thing is having an enormous impact, and is overriding all other things which matter.

YOU are giving power to FAUX by paying attention to them.
