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.

School Bashing

Question for you Steve: If public schools are so bad, why did you send your children there?

Your statement about grief counseling and building self-esteem being "stupidities" is amazing! Do you not believe that building a child's self-esteem is an important part of education? Since when?!! You obviously have a very different idea of what education should involve.

And you don't seem to understand that private entities could not POSSIBLY fund schools adequately, or for very long. I personally don't want to depend on "donations" to get my child through school. And why in the world do you think church schools or some corporate-sponsored school would not have an agenda? Talk about squashing individuality and creativity!! Wow!!
