    So by your reasoning Punx, we shouldn’t trust Atheist’s. After all, they will clearly be trying to support their own bias.

    Why are we even involved with these people? Both sides are crazy. Lets just reinforce Israel and let the rest sort themselves out.

    It was 1997-2001 when I was there. Cell phones were not very popular then. Pagers were more widely used.

    When I was in the Army, Sprint used to do everything it could to rip soldiers off at Fort Hood. They had this “barracks phone,” plan that was a worse plan than offered to civilians but it was the only thing barracks soldiers could get. On top of that, they were always screwing up bills and charging way more than was owed. Then, even after admitting their mistakes, they would still try to charge late fee’s when a soldier refused to pay the erroneous bill. I avoid Sprint at all cost because of how they treated us back then. Of every phone company I have ever used, Sprint was hands down the worst.

    When will we get the apology for the global warming hysteria?

    You didn’t need to write all this to convince us you aren’t fit to be a father. You could have saved a lot of time by just saying “I’m a liberal.”

    “.. it follows an extremist version of Islam…”

    Is that true? Or does ISIS simply follow Islam to its logical conclusion?

    Being in Korea and seeing things from an outside perspective, it appears my country is becoming France.

    If it’s like when I was still in, it won’t matter anyway. Every time we got a pay raise of any type, AAFES simply raised all of their prices. So every raise we got in my eight years was nothing but a cost of living raise really.

    I would like to see a study regarding the unrealistic expectations of women today paired with the deck being stacked against men in court when it comes to divorce, children, etc and how that is affecting men when it comes to marriage. I suspect that is having a lot bigger impact on marriage than porn is.

    I won’t be coming back for a few years so I have not looked into it much yet. I am currently licensed in Indiana though that can be transferred fairly easily to most states. It’s something my wife and I will talk about more the closer we get to returning.

    I currently teach in South Korea but it is going to be comical being in the public school system when I come back to the States. Liberals will just love me. History teacher, conservative, Christian, and a veteran.

    If kids in the U.S. think their lives are too tough, send them over here to S. Korea for a bit. Then they will understand what a “tough life” means. The kids I teach go to school six days a week, all day. The older kids do not get out of school until 9:30pm (some later if going to an illegal school) Then they go home to study and do homework until bedtime around 12am. They wake up and do it all again the next day. This is their childhood but you know what? There aren’t mass killings here by students. There aren’t gangs of students roaming the streets. There are rarely fights in school. Students are also much more respectful to teachers here. (If the teacher has a clue that is) I have not seen a single teenage pregnancy nor heard of one in my time here. I am sure it happens but is very rare. The extent of misbehavior in class is usually a student falling asleep, which is understandable when you realize it is because they were up all night studying, not partying and playing video games.

    When I come back to the States to teach it is going to be very difficult to accept the excuses parents make for their children’s poor behavior.

    I find the angry comments to a story like this hilarious. Some of you seriously need to get out and enjoy life a bit. These students are having fun. Something more of you should try. I don’t care what your political affiliation is.

    When do you start holding parents accountable for their children’s discipline problems and unwillingness to try in school? Teachers are with these kids for a very small amount of time compared to what parents are. For example, if you are a high school teacher, you may only see a student for one class all day. So in say a 40 to 50 minute class period per day what impact is a teacher supposed to really have on that student?Who is really at fault here? The parent who spends hours per day under the same roof with the child, or the teacher who spends 50 minutes with them a day?

    I am not saying there aren’t bad teachers/school systems out there, the recent Atlanta cheating scandal is proof there are. Yet if you want your child to be well educated that starts at home. Amazingly I see very few comments mentioning the fact that parents do not raise their children anymore. They expect someone else to do so at daycare, at school, at church, at boy scouts, or by the TV. Parents need to stop blaming everyone else for their kids shortcomings and start looking in the mirror. Raise your kids to be respectful, hardworking, to make no excuses and to value learning. The results will show in school no matter how bad some of their teachers may be.

    @JackSureShot

    I agree with you. There is no way that kid is a hero. If the teacher had been using a traditional style of teaching the guy would have done the same thing. He would have simply said “You can’t just stand up there and lecture…” and away he would have went. What he was doing is making excuses, nothing more.

    I have a feeling there is a parent behind this kid who let him do whatever he wanted, never checked the kids homework to make sure it was done, and generally expected the school system to raise their kid.

  • May 11, 2013 at 10:09am

    Heh, so this kid is upset because a teacher is not using the traditional style of “lecture at students” that has failed for well over 40 years now?

    The most remarkable thing to me is that no one offered any help to the guy. At the very least I would have taken a look at the guys laptop to see if there was anything I could do.

    Wow so liberals are even trying to redistribute points now…

  • November 15, 2012 at 8:52am

    I do not see any of these photo’s on mainstream media sites. All I see there is the aftermath of the Israeli strikes. It would be nice if the media did their job for a change rather than try to pick winners and losers.
