    I think that is so great the population is young and people are still having children. I live in Dallas and families are getting smaller and smaller. I just visited Utah and it is indeed a special place. Those are the children that will sustain the future. The people of Italy, for instance, are choosing not to have children. This poses a problem for the future. They will not have a military and those to take care of the older generation. Children are a blessing.

    Teacher, all of those children is the reason why teachers don't get paid as much here as other places. We have a higher state tax rate than many other states. Because there is so much federal land here, Utah doesn't get as much property tax money as other states. Sending all of those children to school is expensive, and Utah does a good job with the resources it has.

    Firstly, I'm sorry that you're short of breath. Secondly, your president bashing is comprised of a non sequitur which involves at least two logical leaps, both of which are erroneous, and another error which is part of the premise of your question. This is quite promising, however, since Democrats used to be solely one step thinkers (See problem, spend taxpayers future!) and now you actually show evidence of abstract thought, albeit irrational thought.

    Utah is indeed a blessed place. I grew up there, but now I live in another state. There are many special things about Utah.

    Utah, please put your money where your children are, into Education!!!! I would love to come and teach in Utah, but it doesn't pay.

    Also, Utah has some of the dearest elderly people anywhere. They are a joy to be around.
