Calm down people, it’s a frickin number line! Furthermore, this problem is extremely easy. Subtract from the hundreds place, then the tens, then the ones, seems to be the idea behind using a number line to teach children a method of approaching subtraction. I remember doing something similar to this as a child to understand the basics.
I’m assuming all the hand-written numbers are from the frustrated parent. If so, he has no clue what the hell s/he is doing. The small dashes are clearly meant to represent the ones column, not the tens. Jack forgot to subtract the tens column, hence the reason his answer is off by ten.
Stop freaking out about this people. Just because you don’t understand something, doesn’t mean a 1st grader can’t understand it.
Why use a number line at all? Rote memory is a so much faster way of developing speed in solving math problems. What did the creators of this new math have against kids who have good memories? Maybe it has something to with the fact that memory is not an I.Q. dependent talent. Besides which, many first graders would have had difficulty with the written portion of the problem. For, they are still learning how to read in many cases. Side note literacy rates have fallen since the abandonment of phonics. While the problem is understandable ,abandoning the simple mathmatic way of solving this problem does not make sense.

Also, the story about the solider seeing Washington is not true.

Uh…i live in Memphis, the city where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. He was staying at the Lorraine Motel, not the Holiday Inn. Whatever that letter is, it is not the last letter he wrote on the motel’s stationary.

Don’t worry, Beck has more revealing information….which for some reason he isn’t sharing.
Seriously people, those of you who completely buy into what Mr. Beck is saying, are you not curious – or maybe even a little frustrated – that he is not releasing all his information? Why is he waiting? Beck is implicating the US government of covering up for a terrorist who may be involved in the bombing of Americans. I think we deserve to know all the information he has, instead of him waiting to use it in some sort of ******* contest with the rest of the media.
April 24, 2013 at 6:51pm
Oh ArmedPatriot, I’m sorry…you’re just a loser conspiracy nutcase.
Glad to see the Blaze is drawing in the likes of you people.
April 24, 2013 at 5:30pm
“How about the simple fact that the FBI answers directly to Obama??? Anything he wants them to do, they must execute.”
So then, Obama is out to kill Americans? I mean damn, you’d think he’d blow up Americans in some red state like Texas…but Boston, MA??
April 24, 2013 at 5:27pm
In case anyone is curious…
“Two investigators questioned me about what I saw and where I was and other information that may be of use,” Al-Harbi said. “Then they asked for my permission to search my apartment and I agreed.” Al-Harbi said that the erroneous media reports made him decide to change his apartment because they included his address and even photographs of his place “which is a violation of privacy.” Al-Harbi’s father said his son was just one of more than a hundred people of various nationalities questioned by investigators looking into the blasts that killed three people and injured 175 others.”
But I guess that’s not credible because:
1) Arab news!!! Must be run by radical Islamofascists!
2) It’s just part of the conspiracy by the FBI, Homeland Security, and Obama to, uh, allow a terrorist responsible for blowing up 100+ Americans to roam free…………..
Also, anyone else curious why no one else is talking about this? I mean, if the information really would destroy the Republic, you’d think there’d be some ambitious journalist who’d want to break this huge conspiracy.
And why is this information being given to us piecemeal? This is going to destroy the Republic in Mr. Beck’s words. Why on earth do we have to “tune in tomorrow for more reveals?” If it’s that crucial, shouldn’t we get all the info, like now?!
Are you kidding me? Arab News? In English yet?! But their far more credible, oh yes, for sure. Like Al Jazeera which holds birthday parties for vicious terrorists child murderers and say completely opposite things in English and Arabic.
Yeah, sign me up to Arab News, I sure want their feed each and every day!
And you mention ambitious journalists? Beck is an ambitious journalist. What other ones do you mean? Chris Matthews? Michael Moore? Toure? Brian Williams? Anybody at CBS News where the head of the news division called on Obama to destroy the Republican party? They all had not the slightest interest in Benghazi, why should the care about this?
MMCDONALD -- You parodied the response, and managed to get that exact response. ArmedPatriot could not tell us why the information you presented was incorrect, not could he answer any of the questions you posed in your comment, instead he dismissed it with simple-minded, unthinking Bulverism. But such is his laughable, pathetic style ("You disagree with me!? Well, that means you're a liberal!")
And you do pose very interesting and serious questions. If Beck believes what he is telling us, that there is a conspiracy to protect someone connected to the bombings, if this man is a criminal and a threat to the country, if there are politicians and law enforcement personnel derelict in their duties, and so forth, he should lay it all out, instead of dealing it out piece-meal to draw in an audience for his radio and television programs. If Beck believes what he is saying, his actions demonstrate he has no conscience.
Thank you, it's comforting to know there are SOME sane people on here.
April 22, 2013 at 4:56pm
This is the dumbest thing I’ve read in a long time.
April 22, 2013 at 11:04am
Beck is such a showman…tune in Monday to hear the BIG REVEAL THAT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING! I mean, how many times have we heard this from him?
April 22, 2013 at 10:56am
This is what had to wait until Monday to be revealed…that there’s a lot of stuff we don’t know which may or may not be true.
Quite the showman you’ve become Mr. Beck. Get back to me when you actually have something.
Today, the world has changed... tune in everyday for the next 2 weeks as we further reveal super-duper top secret, "exclusive to The Blaze" information that will alter the course of the universe. And now a word from our sponsors.
February 24, 2013 at 7:51pm
Ironic thought: the majority of stories I see about intrusive government seem to involve state and local governments…yet Beck, Limbaugh etc. continue to tell us how much better life would be if government were more localized!
February 24, 2013 at 7:42pm
Will Juan Williams ever shut up about getting fired? Surprise surprise, saying people of a different faith scare you on national radio may piss a lot of people of…and in turn get you fired (but not before getting stabbed and shot!).
February 24, 2013 at 7:35pm
Nate Silver is not the best…that honor goes to Dick Morris, because whatever he predicts, it’s an absolute guarnetee the opposite will come true.

“You are a conversation, a form of it. We are, too, focus on tens of million lives in the violent cities. Maybe we let a Progressive finish us off. Did you want that, huh? Think before you write.”
I’d take your own advice and think before you write, because I have no idea what you’re trying to say. I do not want a Progressive to finish us off…whatever that means.
“Any libertarians that joined OWS is my enemy because they allied their selves with the left. Yes. They are acting like Nazis and fascists in terns of saying we are not worthy to be libertarians.”
Funny how conservatives are obsessed about the definition of marriage, but when it comes to political ideology, anything goes. It’s not that conservatives aren’t “worthy” of being libertarians….it’s that they’re not libertarians by definition.
“guess who was an ally of OWS too. Anarchists Libertarian Liberals”
What the hell is an anarchist libertarian liberal? Any chance you can show me an article or YouTube video with these guys at the OWS rallies?
And speaking of OWS, what happened to them? Didn’t Beck tell us a while ago that there was going to be an American Spring or something, with a massive push by the left to take control? And I’m still waiting for my hyper-inflation Mr. Beck. I specifically remember Beck saying when he was still on FOX that if inflation wasn’t booming in a year, “stop listening to me.” That was 2010.
“Thank you for making Beck’s poi
February 24, 2013 at 4:18pm
Beck really just doesnt get it…libertarians despise people like him and other conservatives because they use the language of liberty while acting like kooks. Obama is going to take all of your guns…the next logical progressive to run for office is akin to Mao – a mass murderer…we have 18 months to end the party system…too much beer and fireworks on the fourth of July…this is the first time Rush is ashamed of his country…etc. etc.
Meanwhile, libertarians want to focus on the millions of people being imprisoned for non-violent crimes, bombs being dropped on people all over the world, and a banking system that works against the poorest Americans. But no, libertarians shouldn’t care about that; they need to spend their entire time attacking Obama for raising taxes slightly and implementing a health care law nearly identical to the one the 2012 Republican nominee implemented in his home state.
And just a reminder about the “Nazi” Occupy wall street libertarians: I believe they were the ones holding up signs that said “End the Fed” and “End the Wars.” Gosh what a bunch of fascists. Good thing they dont like Newt Gingrich or Bevk would be calling them racist too!
@Donald. You DON'T GET it. You are a conversation, a form of it. We are, too, focus on tens of million lives in the violent cities. Maybe we let a Progressive finish us off. Did you want that, huh? Think before you write.
Any libertarians that joined OWS is my enemy because they allied their selves with the left. Yes. They are acting like Nazis and fascists in terns of saying we are not worthy to be libertarians. Btw, the left includes Nazis and fascist. And, guess who was an ally of OWS too. Anarchists Libertarian Liberals). Thank you for making Beck's point again.
there are libertarian elements in tea party as well as OWS. So libertarians seek to influence both which can only be achieved if you dont fall into the republican/democrat false paradigm.
Even OWS people can be taught about freedom from government - that is something most republicans and many tea partiers dont understand. Here is an article from a so-called libertarian glenn beck who says libertarians are basically a close-minded group....But the evidence is completely to the contrary
@soybomb315_II I thought you hate me to keep making assumptions so you left.
it is funny that in OWS, their idea of "freedom" is big government and few in corners, no government. Wow. Closed minded, huh? We are that, are we. Thank you very much. I am a "close Minded" GOP. AS YOU EASILY CALLED.
"so-called libertarian glenn beck who says libertarians are basically a close-minded group"
Clearly, i am paraphrasing glenn beck who says we dont allow new people into libertarianism - read this blaze article if you need more context. I was clearly not calling you close-minded
Glenn Beck is a fool for believing that all the OWS protesters were the same. That's as naive as the left painting the tea party as a bunch of racists because a couple of protesters had racist signs. Glenn argues that the libertarian party should be open to hearing ideas that might be different, but completely ignores the fact that OWS was a large diverse groups with a lot of ideas that varied widely. Yes, some of them were bad, but a lot of them were good.
To be frank the sentiment behind much of the OWS protesting was justified. It was wrong for the government to bail out the banks, and to pick the winners and losers. The people protesting had a right to be angry. Some of the protesters had solutions that were bad solutions. Some saw increasing government and its control as a means to fix the problem. Their sentiment was just, but their solutions were wrong. As AMERICANJAY1776 noted, there were also a lot of libertarians in attendance who actually wanted things that were right. (i.e. an end to the federal reserve and the unfunded, unconstitutional wars).
So you cannot paint them with such a broad brush. To do this is foolish, and that's what Glenn Beck is. A fool.
Sorry, I meant to quote MMcDonald628, not AMERICANJAY.
"You are a conversation, a form of it. We are, too, focus on tens of million lives in the violent cities. Maybe we let a Progressive finish us off. Did you want that, huh? Think before you write."

@ mmcdonald628 a Libertarian Liberal is simply a person that wants anarchy or want a government so limited which would fit the framework of Articles Of Confederation. Got it now? I was trying to say was any libertarian would join any violent leftist movement is not a small government guy. Got it now?
@No_More_War_Please No worries. I wish this site had a better reply system.
Anyway, Neck isn't a fool. He recognizes that the government and the Mega banks are the problem. You're right on the banks picking winners and losers. I agree with you that it is wrong. Those banks should collapse from their own weight. Let businesses fail from their mistakes. Government should not interfere. Do I sound like a fool?
Americanjay1776.... if you or Beck support another loser like Christie then you are clearly not anywhere near being Libertarians or conservatives.. We cannot afford another establishment progressive like Romney. When Beck says he would support Christie then I have quit listening to him because it is clear he is a fraud. I have long spoken out against the pig from Newark and I have been right in every one of my assumptions. Including that he would run on his knees to Obama if he felt threatened.
@Crazyotto When did I say I would support Christie, huh? That RHINO is not my cup of tea. If you were listening to Beck, he'd support Rand Paul. However, if it was between a Marxist and a capitalist RHINO and no one else was running, he would PICK the RHINO. Just Amazing, you attacked me with no basis on the facts. I never said that I support Christie nor I say I would support him in the future . Heck, I barely stand the social conservative, Bill O'Reily. Think before you write.
It is impossible to have a discussion with this guy. I saw that statement you made - "another loser LIKE Christie". If we consider a "loser" as someone who does not have a history of supporting freedom and free market principles - everyone in the republican primary was a loser except Ron Paul. And in the general election, Romney and Obama were losers. There were more people running for president than Romney and Obama, however
@soybomb315_II Awww Shaddup. I don't need your lip. Crazyotto attacked me and my conservatism. By the way, you are the first mocked me every turn. You ASSUME hat I don't know jack about the political spectrum and you ASSUME I was being judgmental because of people names. For someone that "hates" assumptions and treated to leave, you love ho honk your horn here on a LOT. You have no honor. A man who threats to leave, he leaves. Why do you even bother with a guy like Glenn Beck or me? You think you're so special because you are a libertarian.. Guess what. You're not. I know that you said you're not but your words betrayed you.
The reason that any discussion between us is impossible is you don't want to hear or consider what I say. I had a Jeffersonian Liberal friend from the Tea Party to look the comments here. He thought you are NOT very informed and behaving as butts. He deals with REAL libertarians daily in the Tea Party. You say he is wrong? Then, you're a fool and a moron. I had enough with so-called liberty lovers being biog jerks.
My advice to you is leave The Blaze because Beck is not for you apparently. On second thought, stay. I care less. Don't bother in responding. I won't see it. Unlike you, I am a man of my word. I'll move on and knowing the truth about some immature and not very knowledgeable libertarians.
September 17, 2012 at 6:08pm
I see the judgmental, heartless crazy-cons are at it again…
“was she selfish, she took the life of her baby with her. IIIIIIIIII MEMEMEMEMEME!!!!!!!!!!! I”M soooooo bored. Famous last words. Young and dumb, very sad for all who loved her.”
“Tragic, selfish, stupid and sad………..”
“One less stupid person in the world! I feel sorry for the baby!”
“You have to realize that she is probably one of Libs that does‘nt believe the child is a child until it takes its first breath on it’s own.
I‘m also betting that being a lib she doesn’t believe in God but here last words were to Him.”
etc. etc. etc.

A political ad showing a black man beating innocent white women. Now that WOULD be racist, but Allen West is a Republican, so don’t expect Al Sharpton, Morgan Freeman, and James Earl Jones to make any mention of it.
A black man is accused of sexual harassment by a couple of white women with a history of making these accusations. That too would’ve been racist, but Herman Cain is a Republican, so the media says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
A large group of Americans, who tend dress up in colonial attire, protest a black President’s economic policies…now THAT’S RACIST!

I don’t voluntarily give the owners of chick fil a my money, I’m going to be forced to by the government!
August 3, 2012 at 5:01pm
First off, greetings fellow Memphian! I’ve never met a Blaze visitor in Memphis, unfortunately.
I look at boycotts similar to you – a waste of time and energy. Besides, we actually boycott millions of products and services everyday! Every time you go into a gas station and don’t buy a pack of cigarettes, you’re boycotting that product for whatever reason – you think it’s unhealthy, it smells bad, or it’s simply not appealing.
The problem is POLITICAL boycotts – that is, refusing to buy a product because the owner of that product supports controversial political issues. People think “if I buy x from company y, my money is going to support political position z.” but that’s not necessarily true; it’s just one way of looking at how your money is going to be spent.
I spent about $6 on chick fil a Wednesday. Now, I can assume several things about how my money is spent. I can assume all of my $6 went to support organizations that support traditional marriage, I can assume part of my $6 went to those organizations, or I can assume none of it went there. Why should I think my $6 is supporting anti-gay groups, when it could be an employee’s wage?
Suppose we all got on board with boycotting chick fil a, BUT, the owner never compromises his beliefs. What would happen to him? Well, he’d be dirt poor because no one would buy from him, and he’d instead have to live off welfare, Medicare, andother social welfare programs. So it looks to me like if

@chalkdust, superman, etc.
Your condescending remarks aside, I am not wrong about this. 4 stars go in a straight line. They would’ve had to rearrange them to add the fifth one. Furthermore, because I actually did 5 minutes of research, I know what that the four star helmet was given away after Eisenhower received his 5th star.
So unless Glenn bought this helmet, made it look newer, added a star and rearranged them, and the only person to see a star of David during this whole process was the prop guy, then I suppose Glenn was completely accurate.
I never said Patti Davis did not do drugs; but she was clean by 1991. She claims to have been a drug addict in her teens through her late twenties. She was in her late thirties in 1991. I see no evidence that she sold that letter for drugs. This is not meant to excuse her behavior; why did Glenn need to say that part about drugs?
