    Do I understand you correctly when you think it is enough now days to just ask a child “is that your dad” and let the child go if he/she says “yes?” If that is your position, then I am afraid you forgot some common sense and if you are being sarcastic then forgive me for what I am going to write.

    My wife is a principal at an elementary public school and you would not believe the stories I hear about parents. There are many divorced parents and some of these parents are forbidden from picking up the children per a court order. The child would say “yes, that is my dad” and the principal would release the child and then dad kidnaps the child. Who is blamed then? The principal, because the child said “yes” to “is he your dad.”

    Or the ever-trusting kindergartner. Many will say “yes” to any question you ask them especially at the end of the day when there is confusion going on around them and if the adult whispers “say I am your dad.”

    Or what about the parent who has charges of being a sexual predator and is not allowed to be around the school yet have his child unsupervised. “Is that your dad?” Answers, “yes it is” and then who is in trouble? Right, the principal/school.

    I am sure you are not involved in public education because if you were, you would know a simple “yes he is my dad” may not be enough today in our public schools. That is NOT the fault of the principal trying to do the right thing and keep the child safe. This dad should have said “Thank you”

    NO THEY MIGHT NOT. Go to a kindergarten class and you will find the most trusting children in the world!! They will go off with almost anyone and this is why my wife, an elementary school principal, worries so much at the end of the day when kids are let out.

    Trying to make sure these children are going on the right bus, with the right parent in the right car is a HUGE responsibility that they do not take lightly.

    I don’t know why the parent was mad. He should be grateful the school principal cared enough to make sure the child was going with the right person!! He should have said “THANK YOU” for making sure his child was safe!! Instead, he gets mad at the person entrusted with the care of his child.

    Was he offended the principal did not recognize him personally out of the perhaps 1,000 parents in the school (500 students x 2 parents each). This same parent would be the first to sue the principal if the child went with someone who was not supposed to pick him up. Along with many on this board, who would condemn the school for letting the child go with a wrong person.

    It is no different than the politicians forcing moronic things on businesses even though the politicians know nothing about business. People do not blame the business owner yet they are quick to condemn the teacher/principal for things they are FORCED to do and that includes COMMON CORE!! Teachers, as a rule, love children and want the best for them and that includes the child’s safety!

    So stop blaming teachers and principals at public schools. At least in my area the teachers and principals love these children and only want to see them suceed AND be safe! The STATE will be the first ones to blame the teachers and principals if they were to release a child to the wrong person and the general public is the first one to blame teachers and principals for being cautious when they do not know the adult there to pick up a child. At this point in time the ONLY thing they can rely on is a picture ID or a piece of paper from the court. Blame the politicians (STATE) for putting everything on the backs of the principals because the one thing you are right about: THE STATE WILL NOT BE ACCOUNTABLE (think ebola and it is not the govt fault or the mystery illness pouring across the border, not Obama’s fault. same with our education departments in federal and state government).

  • [1] October 27, 2014 at 5:27pm

    So what would you have the principal at the school use to identify the parent? His word that he/she is the parent? What if this is a new family to the district and the principal/teacher is not sure who this adult is? Just release the child and then find out later this adult is not a parent or is a parent but does not have rights to the child because of a divorce? My wife is a principal at a public school and there are “parents” who are prohibited by court from picking up the child.

    I get so sick of everyone criticizing the teachers/principals when they are OBLIGATED to follow certain procedures put in effect by politicians!! Why don’t you go to school at 3:30 when all 400-500 children are let out and try to keep your eyes on all of them at once to make sure they are all safe, getting on the right bus, making sure they do not wander away and make sure the right adult is there picking them up.

    I agree the STATE does not want to be accoountable, the STATE puts accountability on the back of the teachers and ultimately the principal of the building. The STATE makes moronic laws and TELLS teachers and principals they MUST follow them and if they don’t the school will lose funding. The STATE mandates ALL students in elementary school pass a math test b y 5th grade NO EXCEPTIONS, then the STATE mandates these same schools MUST teach students who cannot even feed themselves and these students are mandated to pass also or the school looses funding!!

  • October 27, 2014 at 5:10pm

    Speaking of moronic…Our state politicians have decreed how fire alarms will occur, when they will occur and they must send a report to the state. If cancelled then the state needs to be notified AND a letter written to justify it. since when do politicians have time to discuss and over see fire alarms? What if it is raining or there is a snow storm? They don’t allow the principals to use common sense!! OR they have decreed all students will pass a math test no exceptions. My wife has students that can’t feed themselves let alone do math.
    I say we should make those same politicians vote 100% of the time on every bill and if they don’t then they are docked pay. OR they have to keep EVERY PROMISE they make on campaign trail or they are immediately kicked out of office. They are so good at micro managing everything to death eyt they cannot do their own jobs.
    So rufus, the next time you want to call all of our public school teachers and principals “moronic” or “stupid,” remember it is the politicians forcing them to do many of these moronic things and that includes common core!! Believe me when I say these teachers would do a much better job without politicians telling them how and what to teach. Just like our businesses could grow faster and bigger without them telling business people how to run a business.
    The MORON and STUPID ones are the politicians NOT the teachers (in 99% of the cases anyway).

    My wife is a principle of one of our elementary public schools. The staff there is neither “moronic” nor “stupid.” When these schools have over 400 children being let out at the same time every day it is very hard to keep an eye on every child although believe me, they do try. There are cases where parents are divorced and one of the parents does NOT have the right to pick up the child and if they show up the school is obligated to get the police involved. Otherwise, some “moronic” politician or parent will blame the principal for letting the child go with the parent that is not allowed to have the child!

    I don’t know why the police were involved in this case but believe me, any principal in my wife’s school system would never call the police unless absolutely necessary. Many of you want to condemn all ppublic schools but you foregt there are many like my wife who truly love these children and only want the best for them. The problem lies with politicians who make stupid laws that make the teachers ans principals look stupid for having to enforce them.

    Do you think the next time I am stiffed by a customer and I get a CIVIL judgment against them the police will use their SWAT to help me get paid?? Of course not, that ONLY applies when the government wants theirs “right now.” You and I will simply have to wait in line if we sue and win a civil judgment.

    HEY? Maybe if I take all of my family along, dress them in fatigues and arm them all do you think the local police will tell me good job when I force a debtor to pay me on my civil judgment?

    Mr. Stohlhandske said “Even if you disagree with gay RELIGIOUS marriage, please see that Jesus did not ask His followers to take his words, convert them into laws, and then force everyone to abide by them; that is the opposite of the way in which He asked us to share His message of hope and salvation.”

    How far does he take this idea of his? In the Bible it is written that marriage is between a man and a woman. Mr. Stolhandske thinks we should not have laws based on this. Well, it also says in the Bible that murder is a sin, stealing is a sin, but yet we have laws against those things. Would he advocate those laws be done away with because they are Biblical? Or does he like to pick and choose which things in the Bible we should ignore because it does not fit his agenda?

    The people in this story displaying the love of Jesus are the Kleins. “Our culture has accepted 2 huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them,” she wrote. “Second is that to love someone means that you must agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense.” Klein concluded, “You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”

    Seems the Kleins understand the Bible a bit better than someone who believes the Bible condones gay “marriage” and ignore the part that says it is between a man and a woman. Call it a union or call it “gayage” but marriage it is not!!

    I don’t understand why any conservative would go on this show to debate Stewart. If you notice, anytime Stewart is backed into a corner he just resorts to jokes and stupidity.

    Stewart is nothing more than a comedian who tries to act intelligent and once his “logic” is shown to be completely illogical he resorts to his comedy routine. The leftists think Stewart is some kind of sage but he is nothing more than a comedian.

    It really makes sense the left thinks of Stewart as their voice of reason: he is a comedian and every logical thinking, common sense person knows the left is nothing but a bunch of court jesters!!

    The picture shows one of the staff in a suit that is meant to protect the wearer from air borne threats; positive pressure and ventilator. Why? The CDC has assured everyone it is not possible to catch ebola through the air and MUST come from contact of bodily fluids. I am thinking the person in all of that gear is probably from the CDC!!

    Just like the rest of this regime, the CDC lies and does not have a clue. They give the dumbest answer why flights from Africa should not be stopped yet they stop USA citizens from flying in this country??!! The answer: LEFTIST LOGIC!!

  • [1] October 16, 2014 at 11:43pm

    I think you hit the nail on the head!! We can’t stand for someone actually succeeding!!

  • [1] October 16, 2014 at 11:41pm

    Jrook, are you using that leftist “logic” again?? NO ONE SAW HER CHEAT OR CAUGHT HER CHEATING and you say they gave her the benefit of the doubt??!!

    Is it such a stretch for a good leftist to think that a “dream student” who received great grades her entire school career gets a great grade yet again on another test (in a class she was already receiving an “A” in up to the very end of the year)? THAT is grounds to say she was cheating when no one saw her or caught her?

    It becomes clearer all the time about leftist logic. We CATCH Obama and his regime “cheating”(breaking the law and constitution) all the time yet the left says he is doing nothing wrong. When the left THINKS someone is cheating (unless it is another leftist) then they find them guilty. Gosh, makes no sense why Obama has screwed up the world in 6 short years does it you leftist sheeple!!

  • [1] October 16, 2014 at 11:31pm

    A real stretch to think a ‘dream student” with great grades her entire school career gets a great grade on a test??!! Sounds like the “logic” of the left at play again!

  • [5] October 16, 2014 at 11:28pm

    She is probably a (gasp!!)…Christian too!! OR maybe a …conservative!! PROOF of being a cheater right there, right leftists? Sounds like the typical “logic” of the left.

  • [1] October 16, 2014 at 11:26pm

    Probably a Christian too!!

  • [7] October 16, 2014 at 11:25pm

    The “good” leftists are at it again!! A good student with good grades and she is probably a Christian to boot!! They accuse her of cheating BUT THEY DID NOT SEE HER CHEAT OR CATCH HER CHEATING!! THAT is leftist “logic!”

    Let’s look at the “logic” of the left. We KNOW the IRS “cheated” by going after Conservative groups but the left defends them to the end. We KNOW that Obama and his regime lied about the murders in Benghazi but the left defends them as noble leaders. We KNOW Obama lied about Obamacare and keeping your doctor, your insurance etc etc and the left says we misunderstood him. We KNOW Obama is breaking the law by refusing to enforce the laws of immigration yet the left says it is great Obama is allowing these criminals in. I could go on and on with all of the things we KNOW the left has done illegally but the leftists support it.

    NOW, we have student that NO one SAW cheating, NO ONE CAUGHT her cheating yet the “logic” of the left says she is guilty because a good student got a good grade on a test!! WOW!! THAT is a stretch right leftists? A “dream student” getting good grades MUST mean she is cheating!! Once again the “logic” displayed by the left is stunning!!(but not in a good way for you leftists out there)

    As an attorney I LOVE the way he put his actions ““My intent was to stop him, not kill him.” EVERYONE PAY ATTENTION TO THESE 9 WORDS!!

    I assist an NRA instructor in his CPL classes and teach the legal aspects of concealed carry. I ALWAYS tell the students, you NEVER say to the police/prosecutor “I shot to kill.” You ALWAYS say “I shot to stop the threat” or “I shot to stop him from beating/hurting me or my girlfriend or my family etc etc” An over zealous, leftist prosecutor will have a hay day if you say “I shot to kill.” Unfortunately many prosecutors do not care if you were protecting yourself (think Zimmerman) and ONLY want to “win” a case.

    MY BEST ADVICE FOR ANYONE WHO CARRIES, IS HAVE THE NAME AND TELEPHONE NUMBER OF AN ATTORNEY now before YOU NEED HIM/HER! Find an attorney in your area that specializes in defending gun owners. Hopefully you will never need him/her but if you do you will be happy to have the number in your wallet. Remember, you DO NOT have to say ANYTHING to the police!! WAIT UNTIL YOU ATTORNEY ARRIVES!! Say NOTHING until your attorney arrives is best.

    So many prosecutors no longer care about justice only winning. So many attorneys in general only care about winning and forget all about justice. That is why the profession has gotten such a bad name. So unfortunately we have to play these word games to protect ourselves from the leftists out there that will gladly prosecute you for protecting yourself. DON’T MAKE IT EASIER FOR THEM!

    Listen to Dr. Michael Savage’s radio program and you will hear truth!! he tells it like it is and it is very scary what these children in Washington DC are doing!! Read his new book “Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth” and read he has been right on about Obama since day one!!

    And the leftists at the CDC said it could never happen in the USA!! Well THAT WAS true before the leftist regime took over. Every other president at least cared about protecting the citizens from such things and were never foolish enough to bring a disease to this country ON PURPOSE!!

    The ONLY people that DESERVE to be infected by ebola or the “mystery illness,” that we all know comes from the illegal “children,”is the politicians who have refused to protect US citizens from these hideous diseases.

    Obama and his court jesters ALLOWED these disease here, THEY should be the ones donning suits and disposing of diapers and fumigating apartments. But NO, typical politicians, they are far too important to do anything “menial.” All they know how to do is ignore laws, ignore citizens and spread their socialist hate.

    VOTE THESE SOCIALIST CHILDREN OUT OF OFFICE; IT IS TIME ADULTS ARE PUT BACK IN CONTROL!!

    This will be his only “milestone” that does not have negative consequences. All of his other milestones are for breaking the law and the constitution!
