"The Cafferty File": Ill-timed debate?Should the military be running public high schools?
Sure the military should be in Chicago having their own high schools. What's so bad about getting a little military indoctrination with your reading, writing and arithmetic? Marines certainly would do no worse than the public high school system. -Steve, Ketchikan, Alaska
I can see it now, Jack! Brainwashed kids in every poor neighborhood! Would they dare open one in Beverly Hills? The Hamptons? This is nothing more than the institutionalization of juvenile brain-draft. Horrific! -Mike, Boston, Massachusetts
Mr. Cafferty, you ask if the military should be running our schools. I say "yes" and add: no more political correctness, it is killing us! -Leticia
Jack, As a graduate of a private Naval prep school, I have found the education and self discipline instilled in me to be invaluable. As we look around this country at the gangs and young people’s complete disregard for life and property it is obvious to me that some discipline is in order, no matter the source. -Al, Sequim, WashingtonWhat does it say about the 2008 campaign when 17 Republican lawmakers have already announced they're not running for reelection?
It says what anyone with half a brain already knows: This election is a loser for Republicans. The smart ones are taking their retirement and getting out before they are involuntarily retired. This election is going to be a blow-out. -Jane, Georgetown, Texas
I don't care if they're Republicans or Democrats who are choosing not to run. I just want them OUT! We need people with fresh ideas, who care about the American people in Washington.-Mimi, Atlanta, Georgia
It shows that the Republican Party, or most of it, finally has acknowledged, with actions not words mind you, that President Bush has put a wedge so deep in this country that it not only further separated the parties, but completely destroyed his own party. -Rob, Nanticoke, Pennsylvania
Jack, I'd be happy if 435 representatives opted out of the '08 election. -Valatie, New York
