"mystuy" -- Please don't play your stupid Race Card on us. Your precious Saint Trayvon gotRead More ultra-sympathetic media coverage NATIONWIDE for OVER A YEAR -- far more than these white criminals.

Does anyone know the outcome of this trial as of today - 4/24/14. I am anti-gun, anti-violence butRead More even if this gentleman was waiting in his basement just wishing to do harm to anyone who might break in, the fact remains that if no one broke in, our shooter would just become a very bored person. But for those Trayvon Martin haters out there, my thought was that if Zimmerman hadn't stalked him, he'd be alive today. He was in the wrong, period. And to tie this together, everyone would have been better off if Zimmerman just sat down and patrolled his own basement. Guns and stupidity are a more deadly mix than gasoline and matches. JMHO.

I was in the car with a friend, once; he was driving. Upon seeing a large SUV with its driverRead More holding a phone to their ear, my friend pointed at the driver and started telling me about how dangerous "distracted drivers" are. Well, while pointing and ranting, my friend had swerved over the line and dangerously close to hitting the large SUV, which was on a steady course in the middle of its lane. The moral of this story is that "distracted drivers" are not always who you'd expect.

The only positive effect I have seen is that a review of the phone of a driver who was involved in aRead More fatal accident showed that he was texting at the time and it added to the "he was stupid and careless" evidence. Personally, I would love to see a law against "driving like an idiot" which would cover texting, phone, putting on makeup, reading a book held on your steering wheel, changing clothes, etc... all of which I have seen on 422

You cannot offer education to any person who has not had the foundation of paternal guidanceRead More beginning at birth. The maturation of the human entity revolves around initial care as an infant which means communication both oral and by tactile sensation. NURSING an infant is one of the MOST importatnt things that may be offered as a beginning point. Any amount of the process is good, but continuing for the better part of a year is best. TALKING to the infant is also paramount in awakening the receptiveness of the brain as the eyes develop and begin to truly see. Show and demonstrate any and all things. And continue through the pre-teen years. When ANY child is prepared in these ways he or she will be READY to begin secondary schooling and on into the college level and become a resposible, productive AMERICAN. Do as I did. Finish high school. Go to college & get a degree (I paid for myself). Be RESPONSIBLE for yourself. AND Be a GOOD PARENT.. PEPARE your child. THAT is YOUR JOB!!! And THANKS to my parents!!!

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

From the WEAC (Wisconsin teachers union) website:Read More :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: "Common myths, such as “No teachers were involved in writing the CCSS” and “Common core reduces the reading of fiction and literature” are simply incorrect. More than a dozen teachers were on the writing team for the Common Core State Standards, coordinated by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. In Wisconsin, standards leadership teams, made up entirely of Wisconsin educators and content experts in mathematics and English-language arts, provided feedback to multiple drafts of the Common Core State Standards before they were released." :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: http://www.weac.org/news_and_publications/13-10-23/DPI_provides_fact_check_on_Common_Core.aspx

From the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website:Read More ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: "Myth: No teachers were involved in writing the CCSS. Fact: The standards drafting process relied on teachers and standards experts from across the country. Wisconsin teachers played an important role in the reviewing and release of the standards." :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: http://commoncore.dpi.wi.gov/common-core-myths-and-facts

" Tamara April 23, 2014 at 09:24 PM People that are pro-Common Core like to say the same thingsRead More over and over like, anti-Common Core people did not read the standards. They have no proof of that but they like to say it as if it validates Common Core.." ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: We say stuff like that because anti-CC people are making wildly inaccurate claims about "Common Core Math" and CC 'requiring students to not use traditional methods for multiplication and division', and the like. If one has actually read the CC Standards, they would realize that statements like that are absolutely false.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!
