    What’s funny is-I have never-not one time-heard a school administrator, or a parent, say a kid was “too poor” to run a 40 yard dash. Or “too poor” to shoot free throws, or get to practice or games. I have said this for years (and one reason I no longer teach), if we treated the students in the classroom the same way we treat them on the basketball court or football field, their performance would go up. Instead, we make excuses for continued ignorance-most of it voluntary.

    Good point. As usual,there are always two sides to each story-the media always seems to forget that.

    These guys must have advisers on Obamacare-that is the ULTIMATE in magical thinking.

    So, he’s for it….before he’s against it? Or Vice versa? Why does that sound familiar?

    2nd degree murder? If he went back to the house-armed-sounds like it was premeditated.

    It’s Philly-care to guess?

    Bingo. Just another dumazz Dem trying to show his low IQ electorate that he actually does something. Pathetic

    I wonder how many of these tech CEO’s support Hillary and her income redistribution mantra?

    The GOP doesn’t have a platform to NOT care for the poor. Quite the opposite-the GOP-the vast majority of us-don’t want us perpetually KEEPING people poor. We also think it’s mindless to pay someone more to stay poor, than to assist them in getting out of it. Prime example-child care is available to those going to school. Yet those funds disappear when that person gets a job-any job. It would make much more sense to gradually eliminate the benefit as their income increases, yet the way the system is set up, it would cost the parent MORE to get a job than to simply stay in school. THAT’S what is ridiculous. We help them get educated to get a job, then penalize them for actually getting it. Liberalism at its finest.

    What’s surprising-and perhaps a bit telling about the collective IQ of the American public-is that those who demean and criticize Christians, will at the same time embrace Muslims. Last time I looked, Christians pose no threat-overt or otherwise-to anyone. To openly chastise a tolerant religion to coddle one known for violent intolerance is the height of stupidity.

    Hmm, in criticizing the possibility of electing an openly Christian president, is Joy indicating that our current POTUS is not Christian? Despite his many protestations to the contrary? Interesting.

    Not sure where you live, buy my experience has been the exact opposite. I’ve lived in KY, AL, TN and FL, and for the most part, the “rednecks” I know are exactly as Larry described. Are there some who are indeed racist? Sure. But for the most part, it seems the left likes to group everyone who lives in rural America as their definition of “redneck”. I’ve also lived in Cincinnati and Cleveland, and run into far more racism in those cities. Odd how that works.

    Funny thing-we already have a federal law banning automatic weapons. We also have a federal law banning heroin and cocaine (yet I’m sure Whoopi knows dozens of people who readily have both available). We also have a federal law banning illegal immigration. These federal laws have been soooo successful-and yet they feel another one on guns will magically solve all our problems. Delusional-just like every other lib I’ve ever met.

    Some good points there, but we seem to do a poor job these days of teaching our kids appropriate behavior? This kid happens to be from Somalia (I really don’t care), but ANY kid in that environment needs to learn appropriate responses. How many stories do we see ( or hear from our kids) of students treating teachers like garbage, and fighting in the classroom, with each other AND the teacher. I’ll be the first to admit that the requirements for being a teacher are suspect (and ingrained in our system through the union), but they are supposed to be the authority figure in the classroom, and should be treated as such. Quite frankly, I’m all for a teacher who is assaulted to respond with beating the crap out of the offender, but that’s just me.

    While this story is tragic, it does reinforce one basic element of human beings, as well as human nature-people do stupid things. Some are stupid on paramount levels. When that happens-as it obviously did here-the current narrative is to blame it on something, or someone else. People need to take ownership of their own stupid actions.On a planet with a few billion people, millions make various degrees of stupid decisions on a daily basis-and pay the price for them. Obviously she did as well.

    There is a lynchmob mentality among people, a bloodthirsty, barbaric trait that we can’t seem to eradicate, even with all our political correctness and blind devotion to “peace”. The sooner we can admit that-and address how to deal with it-the better off we’ll be.

    It is a threat. Let’s face it-historically, Muslims as a rule do not “assimilate”. They do not “blend”, nor do they accept a role as simply a part of a society. In this case, they are using the laws and politically correct sensitivities of the US against us, and it’s working. I’m not anti-Muslim, but the simple fact is, at this particular point in time, they pose the biggest threat to any western nation. I recall commercials for stockbrokers that were required to use the language, “past performance is not indicative of future results.”, but in this case, past-as well as present-performance of the Muslim world is ENTIRELY indicative of future results. A bit of prevention and caution is nothing if not common sense.

    Or Rednecks? Any sideways glance at my pickup should be grounds for a lawsuit.

  • [2] December 29, 2015 at 4:24pm

    Could not agree more.
