Joseph Palermo: With a little luck there will be a point reached when the GOP’s paymasters among the giant corporations and billionaires get nervous about closing down a government which functions as a cash cow for them.

Carl Bloice: Why is it that the richest, most powerful nation on the planet, one that produces more and more billionaires each year and can spend one million dollars each on the soldiers it sends off to war, can’t afford to educate its kids? It remains a mystery to me that an administration that can spend millions of dollars to bribe states into facilitating its quite controversial school “reform” programs can’t come up with the resources to stave off the pending mass layoffs of teachers.
