Jun 3rd 2011 8:26AM If someone has an opinion they can place it in a newspaper, write a letter, stand on a corner and shout it. The yearbook was a keepsake, a memory for all the students and families. The list as it was written was very offensive to many people. It had no place in the yearbook. Considering the age of the students, one has to wonder too. I doubt their families, and the children themselves once fully grown down the road would appreciate something like that stigmatizing their yearbook.
Was it the personal opinion of the parents of the child that put it in the year book, or was it indoctrination in some class by a nutjob teacher? No matter, it has no place in a yearbook. What if instead what was written was something negative towards a race, ethnic group, nationality or religion? Yes, there is freedom of speech, but there is also a time, place and line and that entry crossed that line.
Jun 3rd 2011 3:56AM Obviously not all students and parents feel that way or there wouldn't be an uproar. Such misconceptions too, on the part of the person who made up that list says a lot about the propaganda fed the students. As a parent, when my children were 'indoctrinated' by certain teachers I called the school to protest. I sent them for an education, not an indoctrination in to the Teachers personal worldview, which to me seemed very twisted and misinformed.
May 7th 2011 6:29AM When I was growing up we got a portable dishwasher. The thing danced across the room and leaked water. Was more work than it was worth. Couldn't wash the old dirty pots in it. So, it was good only for the actual dishes. After a short while we stopped using it and went back to handwashing our dishes.
I do a whole lot of cooking from scratch. Did so when the kids were growing up, and now that its just husband and I I still do which means a whole lot of dishes/bowls, pots, etc. I don't have a dishwasher and never missed having one...probably because my only experience was with a bad one. I do do a whole lot of washing. My kids, on their own now, working, using a lot of disposible dishes and take out, can't live without a dishwasher....go figure. They didn't grow up having one, but then, neather ever did the dishes at home. That was my job. Soooooo....I could live without a dishwasher, but, never without a microwave, regular stove and oven, toaster.....oversized fridge, and freezer, attached and stand alone versions. And a walk in oversized pantry for all those pots, gadgets and food supplies is a must.
Mar 4th 2011 6:17AM That was my first thought...for a global warming theorist, what a place to take up residence. Or maybe he doesn't think it will happen, the rise in water tables/level, in his lifetime? He gets funnier and funnier with every move he makes.
Mar 4th 2011 6:14AM You have rich and poor among both Republicans and Democrats. The difference is that the rich republicans are all about showing folks how to get ahead, while the Democrats think their voters are too dumb to think for themselves, so the 'elete' among them do their thinking for them.. That doesn't just go for 'knowing whats best' for the masses, but also, an elitist idea that they, the leaders, who, yes, are usually rich, are above the little people and due to their great work on behalf of the people, they deserve it more than those idiot rich republicans that want to teach the people to work and think for themselves, get ahead, and out from under the yolk of their 'betters'. Two different mindsets. The dems thinking a lot like Bread and Circus of the ancient Roman era when
the 'dumb masses' were kept happy although dirt poor, with bread and entertainment, and in return kept their masters in power supporting and voting for them.
Mar 4th 2011 6:06AM Important bigger than life people, that matter, require more energy resources... LOL He makes up for it all by teaching others to conserve. Think of all the folks he has inspired and how much energy they have saved the planet.
Mar 4th 2011 6:03AM It was quite the joke back during the Bush presidency when they did a story on the homes of Bush, verses Gore, and it turned out Gores was a big energy user and Bushes was the opposite. Embarrassed Gore into cutting back on the power. Well, at least that's what his publicity folks
told the media. I wonder how much energy it takes to upkeep his home, if this is the home/site
that had used up all that energy, or another/new one. He never practiced what he preached.
Feb 26th 2011 7:58AM Really....you go verbally asualting Jews every time? And that is OK?
Feb 26th 2011 4:13AM It runs in my family that the women don't go grey til way into old age. I am there...old, but am only now starting to get some grey strands, mainly around the front of the ears. Being a fall, grey and white shades don't look good on me so I know, as I grey more it will look awful. Still, I have neve dyed my hair and don't intend to. All that work to upkeep, and then there is the smell. Guess I will just have to live with it and be glad it didn't start to kick in til now.
Feb 26th 2011 3:54AM That is exactly what I was thinking. I know that if I smile, while feeling even just nutral, suddenly I feel more positive than nutral.. same goes for if I am sad, etc. Its healthy rather than not. I think the issue with their study and those bus drivers is that while they smiled they resented having to smile, and really wanted to cus, so they felt frustrated. I can't word it better but What I am trying to say is there is a difference between feeling sad or not feeling like smiling and still smiling, thus feeling better...and feeling angry and wanting to show that anger, or resentment, and having to smile on the job as is the case of the bus drivers.
