    “I am my brother’s keeper”

    Really? What about that half brother George living in poverty?

    thanks, grandma. Always appreciate your powerful prayers.

    Chocolate is a vegetable. A bean. And I make sure I get at least one serving a day…

    For some reason I can see no comments.

    I know parents worry their kid will feel left out, and I guess if the parents didn’t know ahead of time the kids could have felt that way, but really, what is so important about food treats in school? We Americans (don’t know about other places) are so hung up on food treats I swear they equate it with a necessity to feel safe and loved. Maslo’s all out of whack.

    My youngest son never got treats at school. They are full of artificial crap and he wasn’t eating that swill. He was fine because I’d make sure what he got for a treat at home was 100 times better than the stuff they have at school.

    I hope a lawyer or somebody comes along to help this kid. When bullying is allowed in school a kid has no hope of it ever changing. And it is obviously allowed in this school.

    I know a kid bullied like this in middle school and he tried to kill himself.

    Raydoc and others. This is not a PC issue. This is a woman saying this teen could be sent to a gas chamber. It’s no different than saying a black kid should be lynched. If someone said something like this to your kid you’d be all over that school. It’s not a mistake or a PC police thing. It’s wrong.

    No, but the child did one small tiny wrong thing. It could have been easily corrected – being told to move to the back of the line – and that’s that.

    No ne needs to concentrate on the small thing this teen did. It was small. She was cutting in line, not punching anyone or smoking crack.

    I agree with jnfomo. This is not merely an uncouth statement. Imagine being in the US, and a black kid butt in line and the teacher said the kid was going to be sent back to the plantation to be whipped or hobbled or hung by the neck on a tree? Same thing.

    Caleejr. You are missing the point. Kids do things wrong and school all the time. They are still learning how to behave in public. I don’t think a punishment is always necessary everytime a kid does a stupid little thing. Just being told stop is sometimes enough.

    But what the teacher said is horrible and needs the attention. Not the kid moving a rope.

    So do I. I don’t know what that means?

    Why does everyone have to go through a training? Why can’t they just fire the one jerk and leave it at that? Typical way of handling one person’s screw up. Make everyone have to suffer through some stupid training.

    These stats do not clearly indicate that women aren’t paid the same as men for the same job. The stats merely indicate that women make less money than men. Maybe they work more part time.

    No one has been able to prove that a woman makes less money than a man does at the same job.

  • April 9, 2014 at 12:57pm

    He is supposed to be the smartest pres, yet he doesn’t know that the stats are reporting overall differences in pay, just a total. Which could be because women work more part time than men. The stats do not indicate a woman makes less pay for equal work. How can he not understand that and stop using those stupid stats that tell us nothing.

    Everyone. I am a born again Christian. I celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. However, I don’t think anyone has addressed the fact that this is a gov’t school handing out invites to an event at a Christian church. You think it’s fine because the USA was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it is still mainly Christian.

    I don’t agree. TEACHERS should not be handing out invites to anything held by a religious organization. For those who said voting is held at churches – yes, that is OK because it is just someone using the facility. But an invitation from the church people to go to an event held at the church that is related to a religious celebration is crossing the line of acceptable.

    If a church sponsors an event related to a religous holiday it should not be promoted by TEACHERS. Even though the current Easter is more pagan than religous, there is still a tenous tie to religion.

    I see nothing wrong with students or parents handing out these fliers at school, it’s just that the teachers did it. If we allow this for Christian holidays, do we want to start having teachers promote other religious holidays? I for one do not. For instance, I don’t want my son invited at school to a Samhain celebration! I’m just saying we have to watch the slippery slope here.

    I must say I do HATE that Easter has become all about eggs and bunnies. I don’t like that my church has an Easter egg hunt and I don’t help them do it. They say it’s a chance for us to reach out to the community. We are doing that with our food closet and clothing closet and doing what Jesus said to do at the same time. But about this Easter bunny crap, I say why are we participating in pagan stuff? Jesus has nothing to do with eggs and bunnies. Jesus death and resurrection is what it is all about for me. I am fed up with it.

    I don’t think these flyers should have been handed out by a teacher. Even though bunnies and eggs have nothing to do with the religious holiday called Easter, the even was at a church. I find it difficult to believe that the event is purely secular when held at a church.

    I know how some of you feel about Muslims, and yes I think we are in danger of Sharia law becoming THE law in some states and all over if we aren’t careful, but this has nothing to do with him being Muslim.

    If you,as a Christian, saw your kid come home from school with a flyer his teacher gave him inviting everyone to a fun event at a Muslim church, would you not question why that was handed out at school?

    She is disgusting but there must be a market out there for this awful stuff so I guess a whole lot more people who didn’t get caught are disgusting also.

    Good comment. So true. These kids are damaged and often dangerous. I know someone who thoght adopting a 10 yr old kid from Russia would be nice and he was terrorizing the entire family.If you are going to adopt a child this is something you have to think about. If the kid is young enough, attachment parenting may work. They don’t always have to go into a home.

    Where’sRally – I can’t view that video at the PC I’m at so forgive me if the vidoe points out what sort of people you avoid? Are you saying you can’t deal with blind peopel or people with autism or what? Just so you know, not everyone with autism is like Rain Man. I bet you work or go to school or church with people with autism and don’t even know it.
