Brig,,you da man..you're finally getting it. This isn't really a Dem, or Repub matter, it's a global issue. If China, Korea, India, Pakistan, and so on can educate their people for less than we do, then they get the next generation jobs. If their people, many that are just trying to get where the average American was 50 years ago, we have the pressure of competing with that too. This is bigger than our "local" politics. We can't bitch our way to a resolution. That's being tried in Greece. We have to understand that we are going to have to reset..I hope we can come together, but am concerned. The Kochs, Murdochs, Trumps, and so on can't compete with the totality of the American public..regards to you,,and hope we hear from Felco.
