I know this is not the point of this thread, but I have rather strong views on some subjects, and I've stepped on some toes and made some people mad. I'd like to meet them and try and mend fences, at least until the next time we have a serious disagreement.
1. Stupid Idiot
2. Victim of Stupid Idiot
1. Immoral man
2. Collateral damage from Immoral Man
Why are they going there?
1. Where else can you be welcomed, then they pay you benefits, and live in a place that is so much better than where they came from its hard to put it into words.
2. But they never really accept all the good things about their new home because they refuse to ever change to gain all its benefits.
3. Then in their stupidity and false religion they decide to destroy the culture that gave them the material benefits and replace it with the same dysfunctional culture that destroyed the land they grew up in.
Makes a whole lot of sense doesn't it?
But then the Gang of 8 thinks it makes perfect sense
No snark written or indented. One one level it's not necessary, on another level the subject is too lame to waste humor on it.

Get a real life. I've seen like three posts from you and everything is looked at straight through the lenses of your lifestyle choices, while you expect everyone to bow to them in agreement. Here's a reminder, some people disagree with you and your lifestyle. Like so many others who agree with you, you just want to blow up society and build it in your image, with the power of the Federal Government behind it to enforce your/their beliefs about right/wrong.
I don't think anything written in this thread required this level of snark in response. · 19 hours ago
May God have mercy on our souls. Maybe the only good thing about this is that most practicing Christians will never hear this pile of words and those who aren't Christian won't care and get totally turned off by it.
It might be better than the average sermon from a looney-tune radical Moslem cleric, but not much better.
Texans elect people to uphold state law in state and local elections. Losers like Slate don't like that, they want the feds to run everything since they think they control the levers of power up there. Whether it ruins the country or not doesn't matter to them.
"Treat other people the way you want to be treated."
or, to put it more exactly....
"Love your neighbor as yourself."
If the roles were reversed what would you want them to do?
There's your answer.
not a single thing.
From an old TV show:
Liberal: "all I do is lie"
normal person: "ok"
Liberal person: "I'm lying."
13/13. Hard not to miss those if you have a HS diploma and read the newspaper or the internet.
"What crap. the fact this won;t see the light of day anywhere that matters shows how deep into the abyss we have plunged. This is the Federal version of the Gosnall trial in Philadelphia, and only a few people give a hoot.
Here is the response of the Democratic ranking members of the five committees:
The five ranking Democratic members of the committees who drafted the report sent a letter Tuesday to House Speaker John Boehner urging him to withdraw what they called a “partisan report.” The five lawmakers wrote, “Although staff reports may be appropriate in some circumstances, we do not believe a partisan staff report should be used in this case, which involves the death of a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans and is based on sensitive and classified national security information.”
Then the Administration:
“The report just released by the House Republican Conference on Benghazi appears to raise questions that have already been asked and answered in great detail by the Administration,” she said in a statement to The Daily Beast. ....Administration officials have told Congress and said publicly that one reason the talking points were changed was to protect classified information. The Republican report, however, said there was no evidence to support that charge. “There were no concerns about protecting classified information in the email traffic,” the report said.
The study is a waste or useful paper or bandwidth. The data can be massaged in any number of ways to pull that result out of a hat.
Never fast enough. They ought to get rid of speed limits.
Obviously it's Patrick Henry!
Some of you are nuts. My wife is a 35 year veteran teacher, I've spent time in classrooms as well. There are kids who improve greatly in grades and behavior with proper medication. The blanket statements here so many of you make are just plain wrong and very irritating.
I assume there are over-medicated kids, and there are kids acting out the miserable lives they live in their broken families who may not need medicated. There are many kids whose school experience radically changes for the better with proper mediation. Whet is needed for boys who are discipline problems is a multidisciplinary approach with parents, teachers, a physician or nurse or school psychologist and the child (if old enough) to find ways to deal with the behavior problems that can destroy learning for a child and all their classmates who have to try and learn in spite of the miserable learning environment an out-of-control student causes.
