n his Tuesday show, Fox News Channels The OReilly Factor host Bill OReilly unloaded on his show regular Alan Colmes for being unable and unwilling to name a specific program President Barack Obama would cut, other than the entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
Colmes attempted to make his case, but the harder he tried, the more heated the discussion became:
COLMES: I disagree with what he is being said here. dollar. $2.50 in tax cuts for every dollar in tax increases. OREILLY: Thats not specific. COLMES: Yes, he has. He has offered cuts in Medicare. He has offered cuts to entitlements. OREILLY: Thats not specific. He has to say here are the programs that are going to go down. Here is how we are going to reform Medicare and Social Security. And the man refuses to do it.

Not really. Japanese kids are at least 100% better educated than American kids.
Some time back, there was an international scholastic testing conflab in Europe, they sent the best and brightest from NJ to represent the USA. Now the big joke in Belgium is how stupid Americans are.
Two of our children are stay-at-home mothers, The other two are gainfully employed, one in the U.S. Army as a combat solder (tagline), and the other works in the healthcare field, working towards becoming an RN. While non of my children will ever become famous, they are doing well.
I'd attribute that to your parenting skills, not the worthless, money-grubbing "education" system.
I’ve never understood why people attempt to compare the U.S. system of education, where every child is expected to attend formal schooling from age 6 to age 18, to school systems in other countries, where only those deemed capable of succeeding attend formal education. Apples vs oranges.
We have to import engineers, doctors and scientists because there is very little domestic feedstock.
>>The three-yearly OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) report, which compares the knowledge and skills of 15-year-olds in 70 countries around the world, ranked the United States 14th out of 34 OECD countries for reading skills, 17th for science and a below-average 25th for mathematics.<<
>>The United States has also fallen behind in the percentage of 15-year-olds who are enrolled in school, ranking third from bottom of the OECD countries, above only Mexico and Turkey.
Only eight OECD countries have a lower high school graduation rate than the United States<<
Again, you are comparing two completely different approaches to education. When the education system doesn’t have to water down the education to the lowest denomination, then they are free to allow the best and brightest to excel. In the U.S. we are made to educate ALL Children, regardless of ability; regardless of intellectual or social development; regardless of physical or mental disabilities! If the U.S. stopped providing for compulsory education for all children age 6 to 18, and only focused on those who demonstrate aptitude, you would then be able to compare our system to these other countries. Again, you are comparing apples to oranges.
Their systems are superior...as was ours once upon a time.
You are defending the indefensible.
The union-thug educRATs and their socialist indoctrination centers SUCK!
I’m not defending anything. I’m pointing out that you are trying to turn apples into oranges.
The apples to apples is: Most other countries turn out high quality, educated students...we don’t.
Did you not read that report?
