Everyone (Well, 98%) Want Lower Taxes for the Rich♥
When national media quotes polls saying that people want the rich to pay their fair share - what they’re not reporting is that people don’t know what the rich actually pay. When asked what actual rate they think rich people should pay… here’s their answers.

Why an iPad will never replace the newspaper.
Federal School Funding♥
I worry sometimes when I read people’s thoughts regarding public schools. Ron Paul recently talked about getting rid of the Dept. of Education (as many real conservatives often do) and the comments that followed, to me, were mind bending.
Most of them talked about how Ron Paul was against education, how he and other conservatives want our children to fail, teachers to be out of work, etc etc….
I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that people are this dense - as it wasn’t too many years ago I might have thought this was crazy too. I also thought that Social Security was something that I was owed as well.
Until I educated myself.
One thing people OFTEN forget about our constitution, is that there are certain rights assigned to the Federal Government. ALL OTHER RIGHTS not mentioned are exclusively the rights of the states or the people.
No one will find education in the constitution, which leaves it up to states and the people to control. The Department of Education, therefore, is unconstitutional.
This is a very simple to understand situation, but the problem is overcoming a lifetime of beliefs instilled in us by society.
We do NOT have a right to eduction. Education is a privileged - and one that is only allowed (per our constitution) to be provided by the States or the people.
If there are people who want the Federal Gov to be the provider of Education (like it is now), I’m fine with that - but you need to start petitioning for a constitutional amendment. Otherwise, any Federal dollars that flow into our education system are dollars spent unconstitutionally.

From Zack Morris to Steve Jobs: The evolution of the cell phone | Articles♥
Once upon a time, there lived a cell phone, one that made and received calls and nothing more.
That was, of course, before the emergence of touch screens; cameras; SMS texting; multi-billion-dollar mobile buyouts; Bluetooth; hand-held devices smarter than their users; on-the-go Web browsing; and anything that ever slid, flipped, or had its own keyboard.
