    Naw, if this were the 1950's, Dad would belong to a union, and bring home a good union salary so mom COULD stay home with the kids.... That simply won't do, the one percent needs all the slaves they can muster to pay for their fucking dressage horses, yachts and mansions.

    I'm sorry you are such a deluded right winger that you keep bending over for the One Percent because they hate Mexicans and Queers, just like Jesus did.

    I just point out the impracticality of replacing schools with computers... Have you ever met a University of Phoenix Grad? I met this woman who had a Master's Degree and she couldn't structure a simple sentence.

    They don't work.

    I think you mistake why private/parochial schools work well. It wasn't because the crazy lesbians in habits were any more qualified to teach than their public school counterparts....

    It was because when you are paying out of your own pocket to make sure your kid gets an education and indoctrination into your crazy religion, you are following up to make sure they are

    Once you give a disinterested parent a voucher, they aren't going to suddenly become more committed.

    You also have the problem of who gets vouchers. you'll end up subsidizing most of the people who are paying out of pocket now. Do you really want to create another "entitlement".

    Actually, in the 1950's, most Americans weren't members of Big Labor at all, and poverty was sky high compared to today under President Trump's rule. This is why President Johnson Failed War on Poverty struck such a chord and won a majority of the vote even in Honky strongholds out west which already enjoyed the Right to Work.

    A lot more dads had jobs as business agents for Big Labor back in the day, or enjoyed no-show or no-work "jobs" that the unions forced on employers. But it wasn't a period of wealth for the public at all.

    There have been examples of religious schools or magnet schools, taking in poor students and doing quite well with them.

    Your graphs are interesting but don't prove a dam thing. The federal minimum wage isn't very important in 2020, as many major employers like Walmart, Amazon and Target pay far in excess of the minimum. The fact that the federal minimum is $7 doesn't mean much when so few get this amount.

    Back in the day, according to your chart, food is a lot less inexpensive nowadays, and people are spending a lot more on travel and entertainment. The Trump economy is providing a

      How racist is the DNC/Democrat party? They are only allowing Whites in their next debate.

    Your graphs, although interesting, don't prove your point at all.

    The fact that the Federal Minimum wage was higher during the 1950's and 1960's doesn't prove a dam thing. Nowadays, relatively few people receive the minimum wage, it isn't a big factor. Huge signs in front of major employers like Walmart, Target and Amazon promise wages far above the federal minimum.

    I went to private school , and believe me, the nuns and the brothers dealt with problems very efficiently.

    Although some children have been expelled over the years, for the most part, children begin to learn and stay after they have been curb stomped or receive other motivation.
