Quoting 
Completely agree. This is why I think public education is so dangerous. It has been corrupted just like the Medical, Drug, Banking, Prison, and Military-Industrial Complexes (all areas with heavy government involvement). Now we have the Government-Education Complex.

I think that is exactly backwards. The money that causes the corruption is private money. In a nutshell political apointee government regulators are corrupt because everything they do is with an eye towards landing a plum job in the regulated industry after they leave. The Education complex is a little different than the others and a bit unusual in that the teachers' unions, rather than Corporations, are such big players. But there is plenty of grease from the Banksters (student loans!) and players like for profit colleges. Congress is corrupt because of the campaign contribution shakedown racket. In the exact words of Senator Durbin, "THE BANKS OWN THIS PLACE."

Try telling anyone in Singapore or Finland that their public education is no good and see what kind of a reaction you get. In a country with a fundamentally and deeply corrupted Kleptocratic system, privatized education would be just as bad or worse than what we have now. People from Europe and Asia who move here can't understand how public schools can be so bad. Of course the same can be said for our sick care system, etc etc etc.

Disclosure: My son is enrolling in the Stanford University online HS next year. The public schools here are in freefall.

Did you ever stop and think that the reason nobody would "thank" your post was because nobody agrees with you?

Or perhaps you were setting yourself up for a martyrs persecution complex?.........Thinking that you were being persecuted for "righteousness sake?"

Being a nice guy does not make your beliefs anymore tenable......I think most people were sighing and rolling their eyes and shaking their heads.

No, I figured no one would thank something they found disagreeable. I was wrong. I presume Zondor disagrees but clicked the button more than likely because he at least appreciates an opposing viewpoint or at least had a good laugh. Either way, he clicked.

I'm far to sensible to need a martyrs persecution complex to make me feel worthwhile. And in my religious tradition, there are none that are righteous, only forgiven and persecution is not fun for anyone except maybe the ones doing the persecution.

And I'm ok with people sighing, rolling their eyes and shaking their heads and probably calling me an idiot under their breath. My wife does that at least once a day. I have thick skin.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

The World According to ThatManFromTexas

3. Home Schooling vs Public Schooling vs Private Schooling; The only things that makes a difference in schools are;

(1) The quality of the teacher ... not the facilities not the amount of money thrown at it and not the standardized tests
.
(2) The involvement of the parents. When parents get personally involved in a school, the quality of education improves

Ok... a Judge ruled they could have prayer. The class Valedictorian said she was going to say a prayer before she gave her speech and everyone could do what they felt comfortable doing.

Then she said a prayer, gave her speech and life went on... film on CNN

I don't know what you see in them ... I have met hundreds of Honest women... I know they were because every one of them said , "Honestly... not if you were the last man on earth ...."

You just have to feel something for a woman that; baits her own hook ... fires expert on the gun range ... will go out and kill something and drag it home, clean and cook it for ya...

Besides... a woman that lives in a place where the nights are 6 months long... has had plenty of time to practice at the things that are really important...
