Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

RE: RE: High Property Taxes

If the federal government would get out of the education business and leave that to the states (where it belongs), then there would be no need for the "No Child Left Behind" act. Maybe now liberals like yourself and conservatives can join together and lobby Congress to get rid of the Department of Education and return educational issues back to the states.

With regard to you wanting your property taxes to go up to pay for a higher teacher supplement, why don't you & others who feel the same way just cut the Stokes County Tax Department a check. ... They will take voluntary contributions. In Collinstown, the vast majority of land owners are elderly, and any increase in property taxes hurts them in the wallet.

I'm leaning toward the flat tax myself, but I can go with a consumption tax.
