Gee Muhammad, calling her her a "White Devil" is a bit extreme isn't it? Why would you wish death upon her? On no wait. I know why. Because your peaceful religion says that alcohol and women are evil. I guess your sharia law could handle this better. Dirka dirka.
John 3347, how could you blame this on the victim? If I sit in my living room and get sloshed, does that make it OK for someone to invade my home and shoot me?
In response to the ridiculous comments made by Echo; it is my sincere desire that you someday experience the pain that is currently felt by the family, friends, and children of the missing boater. However, the missing man would not want you to suffer in any way because he was one of the few genuine people that existed on this planet. The worst thing he may wish for you would be a steaming hot turd on your face. Again, he was a better man than I an obviously a better man than you. The "Ass Hat" title is appropriate for you. You set the prime example of how the first amendment can be abused. Congratulations, I hope you got your jollies from your comment and rot in HELL.
I have had both and have heard many complaints about both. Overall I believe they both are better than Sprint. Sadly, the customer reps in the Verizon stores are on commission and they will lie through their teeth to get you on the hook.
This is great! Especially where dendod said we need some people with progressive ideas. I am in no way defending the current regime, but it is the progressive ideas that have made our schools nothing more than diploma mills. Even universities are lowering their standards to keep the students for tuition reasons.
Many of your kids attend schools that have progressively lowered their standards to make the mark for years. The chickens will come home to roost- bad economy, more need for social programs, higher crime rates, higher taxes (more waste)to fix the social ills.
The very progressive ideas are cloaked in catchy phrases but at the core they are easily exposed. Many schools now allow students to continually submit assignments until they achieve a passing score. For anyone that cares to look into it it is not presented as a bad concept- keep at it until you master it. In the application of it the student decides somewhere near the end of a grading period that it is time to complete several weeks worth of assignments so they can pass, not learn- pass. The teacher that many spend their time criticizing now suddenly hears from the absentee parent that has been unreachable. The administrators email the deplorable teacher for not providing enough opportunities and the teacher one way or another buckles under the pressure.
The student and parent has then been given every incentive to continue the pattern, the administrator is lauded for excellent achievement because of the excellent pass / fail rate or graduation numbers, and society loses because we spend more money to house an inmate for a year than we do to educate a child.
You get what you pay for and you reap what you sew. We will continually lag behind other industrialized nations because we have a warped sense of reality. You can fire Scales, you can vote out the school board, but you cannot undo the idiocy contained within basic principles that violate basic human tendencies. Some kids will seek to excel because of an inherent drive within themselves, others will begrudgingly do what has to be done for fear of consequences, and some will simply lower themselves to every low expectation you give them.
I work every single year on Veterans Day and it is shameful that the state of Georgia does not recognize it. I understand why people are mad about school being conducted on MLK day, but many kids would learn more about MLK at school rather than sleeping in.
I went through MacGregor in 2007 and found it to be a complete cluster. However, I found the poor leadership of 181 to be a far worse issue. MacGregor was a couple of months but the deployment that followed was much longer. The problems at MacGregor were created by idiots outside of the unit. There is no excuse for the harassment that soldiers in the unit faced while deployed.
Most of you are missing the point. If the students involved are punished in any meaningful way, the status of Lafayette High School could be harmed under the federal education guidelines. Each and every student counts for testing purposes and we do not want a little thing like student safety to get in the way of student testing.
