    Not so nifty: Taxpayers chip in on gift for first lady, who turns 50
    No humility or modesty whatsoever

    They have turned Jack Kennedy’s “Ask Not ” phrase into “Ask not what you country can do for you; ask what you can do for the Obama’s”. Not even directed for the country. These self-serving leeches have been living large since day one. They could never get what they’ve taken on their own. Worst president and first lady ever..

    Education Secretary Arne Duncan said that, “we need to
    keep students in class where they can learn.”

    Translation: “We need to keep problem students in class where they can keep other students from learning.”

    If you think NY is bad for corruption, try Chicago!

    I remember in the 70’s the Time Magazine covers about Global Freezing. Weatherweenies are bleating “coldest in 20 years!!”
    Sunspot activity is a 21-year cycle.
    Coinkydink?
    You decide.

    Disability is another lawyer/judge racket. Open your Yellow Pages to find Lawyers-social security. Know that the “administrative law judge” in SS is just another lawyer. Be aware that for those Yellow-Page-Ad Lawyers to be successful locally, they must be “well acquainted” with the local administrative judges. The dumb sheeple are too stupid to see the reality. Not just some or many of the beneficiaries are frauds, but the enabling lawyer/administrative judge racket is also highly profitable.

    Back in the 40’s and 50’s, the principal had a huge paddle next to the desk.

    Judas McCain chooses evil, whereas idiots stumble into it.

    Gates apology is too late. His enabling was a dishonorable.

      “Back in the 40’s and 50’s, the principal had a huge paddle next to the desk.”

      In 1970, I had a male junior high school teacher who displayed and used a wooden boat paddle to enforce discipline. The best thing about it was that if the misbehavior had been directed against another student, he allowed the victim to be the one to administer the whack to the perpetrator in front of the whole class.

      Ah, better living through public shaming!

      • GoodMojo1

        Around the same years, teachers had names for their paddles like “Killer”, and “Mr. Too Bad”.

    Things were never that bad when teachers could spank and parents told them where.

    I’m old enough to remember when getting punished by your teacher was bad enough and that getting sent to the Principal’s office was even more terrifying. Concern for the welfare of children is a good idea but they went too far ages ago.

      It seems that now the teachers and principals (in big cities anyway) are scared of the trouble makers. Kids seem way more aggressive now than say 20 years ago.

      • Igor

        Of course they are, bad behavior is not checked (hard!) when it occurs. It’s called discipline, and while harsh discipline is totally uncalled for, their behavior needs to be curtailed until they learn manners. Which is no longer being taught by family and society.
        We are reaping what we have sown.

        • RightSide

          I’m not willing to take societal blame for the unruly behavior of poorly parented children. There are no parental repercussions let alone student discipline. Instead of fooling around with idiocy like pop-tarts bitten into the imaginary shape of a gun the administrators should be dealing with belligerent kids AND their parents. Warn, Punish, Expel, Deal with it forthrightly.

          • Tallyman

            Perhaps, the parent needs the punishment.

      And then I came home and either Mom or Dad disciplined me AGAIN. I wasn’t beat too terribly often…

      • NRPax

        Kids are smarter than a lot of adults give them credit for. Talk to them normally, explain what is expected and show how quickly they will be corrected for stepping out of line and most of the problems are dealt with.

          Worked for *my* kids. Use the carrot, hide the stick.

        I grew up a the town where both my grandparents were retired schoolteachers. Trouble in school beat me home, and upon my arrival “beatings” would ensue.

        One day, I got five! Two in school, and three at home!
        Disruptive behavior: Checked.
