Lebowski replied to Francis Kittredge's discussion Hannah Skandera
"Francis, I was responding to a post from another user, that has since been removed, it was less than friendly. As far as I'm concerned, you and I have had a perfectly respectful discussion so far. I just haven't had time to continue so…"

Lebowski replied to Francis Kittredge's discussion Hannah Skandera
"There are a lot of aspersions in that post. I'm not getting sucked in...I never advocated for Skandera, I never made some right wing speech, nor did I ever insult teachers. We were having a fairly productive discussion and even…"

Lebowski replied to Francis Kittredge's discussion Hannah Skandera
"Merit based pay is not an ideological thing or some hair brained idea from a politician. It's reality in the world, often the public sector is protected from it (yes by unions) and notoriously have nice long careers with early…"

Lebowski replied to Francis Kittredge's discussion Hannah Skandera
"In what ways is a teacher held directly accountable for student achievement or progress today? Have you ever know a teacher to be fired for not being a good teacher? What is the criteria for being a "bad teacher"? I've…"

"I can't help but opine on your comment about Insurance, specifically: "Would any insurance company be successful if they were forced to accept any and all risk without the ability to adjust rates? Obviously, such an insurance company…"

Lebowski replied to Francis Kittredge's discussion Hannah Skandera
"I didn't blame them, I said they've (the union) done more damage than the Gov or Scandera. Then I pointed out the problems we need to fix. You may notice that I mentioned not being a fan of NCLB. As Run mentioned below, we spend more than…"

Lebowski replied to Francis Kittredge's discussion Hannah Skandera
"It's as simple as this...no need to get into splitting hairs. Teachers are currently, 100% unaccountable for the performance of their students. Unions fully intend on keeping it that way. I can't think of any other profession where you…"

Lebowski replied to Francis Kittredge's discussion Hannah Skandera
"I think the truth lies somewhere in between, as always. I also believe that the teachers unions have done far more damage over time than the Gov or Skandera could ever do. That said, thank you for what you do for our kids every day. "

Lebowski replied to SweetCaroline's discussion Jim Villanucci off the air on KKOB Radio
"This is because Jim isn't a party guy...he's actually a Libertarian. "

Lebowski replied to RunLikeADog's discussion New Mexico tops States in Death Spiral says Forbes
"Agreed, except that lower income people, that qualify for said benefits, don't pay a dime in taxes (federal). Making them purely takers by definition. Although they contribute sweat toward a maker making. I guess there is a sliding…"

Lebowski replied to SweetCaroline's discussion Jim Villanucci off the air on KKOB Radio
"Like it or not, they have the highest rated 2 talk shows in the country. Just from a business perspective, they would be nuts to change the lineup. They would actually lose listeners. Progressive radio has not been successful anywhere (other than…"

Lebowski replied to RunLikeADog's discussion New Mexico tops States in Death Spiral says Forbes
"Of course it's not black and white. But money is only produced in the private sector. Government only costs money. This isn't about the value some takers contribute or the value that some government provides. Unless the private sector is…"

Lebowski commented on MarketPlace Media's blog post Morning Fix: Too Good to Be True?
"I have a proposition: Gov Martinez will put up a leftist, teachers union advocate to replace Skandera. However, school choice will also be implemented, to include vouchers (not to be used in non-secular schools). Then let's see what comes out…"

Lebowski replied to RunLikeADog's discussion New Mexico tops States in Death Spiral says Forbes
"It's a fact, not a derogatory statement. There are indeed takers and makers in a capitalist economy. There is a careful balance of the two for continued success and we are upside down. It's econ 101, not some…"
