Since Obama took office, Speaker of the House, John Boehner has been searching for "common ground." Through crisis after crisis, the same phrase has emerged from his lips. Meanwhile the President has single-handedly pulled the economy out of its swamp.
No wonder his approval ratings are climbing and Congress remains at all time lows.

By Bobby Harrison Daily Journal Jackson Bureau JACKSON – Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves says 1 million Mississippians will benefit from his tax-cut proposal, which would be phased-in over a 10-year period, save income taxpayers at least $150 a year and cost the state general fund about $380 million. Reeves, during a news conference Tuesday at …
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Is this a 250 million free gift to the rich? Each tax payer will get a 150 buck annual rebate on the deal after 5 years......ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) and others are alive and well off in Mississippi! They "exchange"  officials money for campaigns in various ways and "our?" officials once elected, vote in what ever ALEC and other large donors want it appears.

New tech adviser for Jeb Bush's potential campaign resignsm, | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
A newly hired top tech adviser to potential 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush resigned under pressure Tuesday night.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I'm sorry Jeb maybe you should have been "held" (otherwise considered "flunked or "failed" by any child) in the 3rd grade till you could learn to pick more loyal friends like other perfect people do. This seems like a greater character flaw than not reading on grade level by the age of 8 or so. Seems Jeb failed at this so where do we hold him back? May I suggest the 3rd grade with other much smaller youngsters he declared to tag "failed" rather than deploy progressive ideas from 50 years ago like summer schools or 25 years ago like reading specialist and tutoring in grades k-12 or both or try the approach of no grades levels  in the lower level which was an even newer trend.  The treading water approach to education proved a failed plan years ago and it seems Jeb just didn't get it, cut that class or really doesn't give a hoot if it doesn't involve his kid. His tech adviser must not have been retained in Florida 3rd grade classes and those doing the pressuring must have been in the top of their class. Dear Jeb go back to the third grade and stay till we let you out. It will be good for you. Smart guys should run for president and you failed to read some of your assignments or you can't read for comprehension. Maybe the next tech guy can translate this for you...http://educationbythenumbers.org/content/new-research-failing-students_2034/

'By demanding Greece pay back their debts in full, German chancellor Angela Merkel wants the rest of the world to forget her country's recent history. Given the state of Germany as both a failed economy and a pariah state in the wake of World War II, Merkel's current insistence on Greek bailout repayment is the kind of ballsy hypocrisy that deserves to be put on full display.'
