    “Each year the school asked me to keep him home during the MEAPS.”

    What year did this happen and yes it IS illegal!

    Also, “teachers filled in the answers for him”. Report it! This is highly illegal and many schools have been in BIG trouble for this kind of unscrupulous practice. Teachers should not be filling in answers.

    Never mind. The recipe asked for something like 10 different spices. I would have to win your cabin to afford all those. :grin:
    Anyway, I’m going to the store to buy more guacamole. There isn’t enough at home to go with all the upcoming BS (the Pelley interview).

    “Why are the teacher Unions opposed to year round school?
    Please don’t say it has to do with mandated training. In my field, I have to train on new tech and get new certs. every year and I have to do it on my own time.”

    Some schools do follow this kind of schedule but even though it is year round, still students only attend school for abbreviated periods (for example: 4 weeks on and one week off). My best guess is to keep expenses down (everything from labor, heat/air, food to transportation) but that is just a guess.

    Just kidding don’t go crazy lefties. You read my comments on printing money and producers as opposed to takers. No reply? I thought so!

    Obamanommics will sink the country. Deep down you know I am right!

  • Sicilian Papa



    Tony isn’t the only one heading to Vegas. It is the only place we can find a job in Obama’s America!

  • usa8888

    If the right wingers in the House don’t stop obstructing Obama’s job creation, the economy will continue to be held back by the GOP and the only person making money will be Robme who is evading taxes with his money hidden overseas…

  • usa8888

    The GOP’s lack of knowledge of economics in the House is trying to sink the country, but if they quit obstructing, Obama’s progressive policies will get the economy going full steam ahead, just like the Stock Market…..

  • Bobbyv

    Good economy = Dem brilliance

    Bad economy = Rep ignorance

    Got it!

    Back to the game

  • Bobbyv

    Halftime, I have to ask what everyone thinks about LP saying water boarding helped get OBL.

  • usa8888

    Bad economy = Rep obstructionism (debt ceiling downgrade resulting from refusing to pay for already incurred debt; fiscal cliff irresponsibility; drastic spending cuts in bad recession; no economic plan except try to ruin Obama by ruining the US economy)—–Any Questions??????

    I think that anybody with half a brain already knew it and the loons on the left will continue to deny deny deny unless of course the king does another flip flop like closing Gitmo and says it works the the loons will be “see we told ya it works!!! Why did that idiot Bush stop so soon??”

  • Bobbyv


    Power out at SB. You have said after the economy gets going then we should tackle the debt. What has given you the impression the President will do that? Also, he got his tax increase he wanted, it’s his now. He HAS to own this, a leader does not continuously pass the buck. Every administration deals with the other party, this is not a first.

    It is not fair that he only gets the credit but none of the blame. Does that sound fair to you?

  • usa8888

    Fox running bogus headline saying dems stick by claim GOP trying to cut entitlements for seniors–YES, that’s exactly what lian Ryan proposed in his budget. The right wing GOP wants ELIMINATE Social Security, Medicare, and virtually all government programs because the right wing controlled GOP wants none of this…..that’s one reason the GOP LOST the election…and they will lose all future electins if they don’t change their warped views……

    It shows how two faced the loons are!!! THEY say the economy IS getting going (but again anyone with half a brain knows that ISNT the case) so let the tackling begin!!!!

    Cant fix Stupid!

  • Bobbyv


    People can and have debated waterboarding, there are at least arguments on both sides. I think if lives are at stake it should be in the equation. However, people have continued to deny we get accurate info from it and that debate should now be over. LP said we maybe could have gotten OBL without it. I believe him but the fact is we got OBL with it.

  • Ratboy

    Normally after reading the posts by Mr ZERO I would say someone is spending too much time at the punch bowl but those that are here all the time sadly know that he is ALWAYS wacked! :shock: :lol:

  • usa8888

    Now that the tax increase on the rich is done, there need to be tax changes which stop super rich like Robme from paying 0 to 15% on cap gains, etc. Then, there needs to be an infrastructure program rebuilding our decaying infrastructure with eseentially interest money, creating jobs, and using the multiplier effect to creat more jobs–just like Eisenhower did in the 50’s. This will get the economy humming again. Additionally, the right fringe in the House needs to stop their fiscal cliff and debt ceiling games, which adversely affect the economy.
    Any Questions????

    I always ask people “if your child is in danger and the choice to save him/her is waterboarding and enhanced interogation for better odds, whould you still say no??” I think NOT! Well we are the children of the government and it BETTER do ANYTHING to insure our safety!!!!!
