    In my last paragraph, I assumed the teacher was a she. I should have said he or she.

    So this teacher didn’t expect any backlash when he or she sent the kids home with this assignment? Maybe the next assignment should be comparing Obama to PINOCCHIO

    This is just like the school attempting to turn away the father who was in uniform. You’d think the teacher in this latest incident would have known better and could have predicted some parents would have a problem with the assignment and would contact the school about it. And . . . then comes the apology — after the negative publicity. So only NOW does the teacher admit to poor judgment and short-sightedness?

    I think she knew just who to compare to whom. If she had asked the students to compare Obama to Osama Bin Laden, or the amount of golf Obama has played compared to the amount of golf Bush played, then she might have given the choice of resigning or being fired.

    At least he HAS a fence. Now, if we just had one at the southern border!

    Before I heard that the fence jumper was heading TOWARD the presidential residence, I thought it might be Obama trying to ESCAPE, since we know he doesn’t like the hard parts of the job, just the perks. Thought he might have finally decided the perks weren’t worth the headaches. Actually, I was hoping the one Secret Service agent holding the dog back would have released it and let the dog teach Mr. Fence Jumper a lesson. Or, maybe the Secret Service could have just removed the guy’s shoes and rewarded the dog with a game of fetch. Seriously, this BONEHEAD has pretty lousy timing, jumping the fence on 9/11. Damn lucky he wasn’t shot. Waiting to hear him claim something like God told him to visit the president or that he himself is God. Kooks are always claiming that. Like to hear a little more about this goon in a few days. Maybe he was just looking to get free room and board via jail.

    Maybe instead of a pill, a suppository?

    Oops, goofed on the first “organization”.

    The video says the colonel was stopped by FOUR different people. I could see one person being confused regarding the rules, but four people stopping the colonel? How did four people get the word to stop the officer and tell him he can’t come in in uniform? Some of the kids might be offended? At first, I thought this was an elementary school. Any high school student offended by a person in a military uniform needs to get over feeling offended, if it’s even true. I guess “Support Our Troops” and “Thank You For Your Service” doesn’t apply in this school? Those four people would be getting “retrained” on the policy for visitors. It would make sense if the officer was told to go to the office and sign in or show i.d. so you know he’s legit, but to forbid him on school property because he was in uniform? I’ve said this before, but someone seems to do something stupid like this, and it gets publicity and then the orgainization has to put out a statement saying what happened was a misunderstanding and whatever was said or done is not part of the policy of the organization. This PR nightmare could have been avoided. This doesn’t mean you let anyone on school property unchallenged, but you direct them to the office so the school knows who’s on the property and that they have a good reason for being there.

    Guess if he was, maybe it was a “less offensive” style or color. Good grief.

    I thought that, too, but when the waiter said the group was loud and rude and said “what is this s**t?”, then I thought maybe McCoy might have intended for the tip to be 20 cents. The waiter should have asked McCoy if he’d like to speak with the manager after the “what is this s**t?” comment. Maybe whatever was wrong could have been fixed, and McCoy would have been satisfied with the service.

    Now that you mention it . . . . Hope it’s fixed soon.

    Anyone who claimed to be a relative and took off with the motorcyclist’s property with no regard for his well-being in my book is a thief, plain and simple. Too bad no one got a picture of both of these “relatives”. May neither of them have any good luck, now that they’ve stolen property from the deceased. Thieves AND liars! Maybe they’ll find THEMSELVES the victims of theft of their newly acquired property! Would serve them right.

    Is this some statewide rule? I don’t want to come down too hard on the chief if he’s getting some order from higher up. What about firefighters in New York? Are they subject to this same rule? I know I shouldn’t compare what goes on in one state to another, I just wondered if this was happening in firehouses across the country. It just seems normal for firefighters or police to have an American flag sticker on their locker or helmet if they want. Even the Marine Corps decal seems fine. As long
    as the sticker’s not controversial (nothing political or vulgar), what’s the problem? I think a sticker here or there on the lockers gives the firehouse some “personality” I hate to see this turn into a battle between the chief and his men. It’d be nice if they could discuss it and come to some civil solution.

    Maybe the blow to her head gave her amnesia. Could explain why she still married him.

    If you have a gun, I wouldn’t think you’d need to call 911 until after you shoot the bast**d so they can come and pick up the body. Just wait for the creep to make it inside and neutralize him. Don’t waste time the phone, concentrate on which way the jerk is coming in and make him sorry he did! The police cannot defy space and time. Don’t expect them to make it there unless they just happen to already be in your neighborhood. You have every right to defend yourself, and if that means killing the intruder, so be it. This jerk sounded mad that she shot him. “Ow! What did you do?” I shot you, “melon farmer”! What the hell did you expect, that I’d just give in? Wrong! Idiots like you need to learn that there’s a chance your victim might be armed and you could be killed or permanently injured, and you deserve it when you break in someone’s house. I’m glad she injured him badly enough to be hospitalized for a month. As you can tell by my euphemisms here, I would call him more than just a “nasty thing”. He’s SORRY! He’s only sorry she shot him. Had she been defenseless, he wouldn’t have been apologetic at all. It’s really too bad he wasn’t killed. This azzhowl had better go to jail and for a long time.

    That decomposing “6″ had better be biodegradable! We don’t want that “6″ in a landfill somewhere putting toxins into the soil! Seriously, if you can’t do that problem (that she took a minute to explain) in your head, you’re not thinking things through. I guess I’m giving kids more credit than this teacher is. Most kids could start with nine and then count six fingers and figure it out. Why the hell is she making it so complicated by “decomposing” and “anchoring”? Good grief!

    Sounds like a good bumper sticker! Might need to be a little bigger than normal so it can be read from a decent distance at a stoplight.

    That’s another thing these people aren’t thinking about. If the minimum wage WERE raised to $15 an hour, they’re going to be expected to DO MORE for that $15, especially since some of their co-workers will be let go so the employer can afford to pay THEM $15. These people wanting that higher wage don’t realize how tired they’re going to be at the end of the shift when there are five people doing the jobs that maybe eight used to do — that is, if the number of customers doesn’t drop considerably when formerly affordable menu items suddenly become unaffordable. And it doesn’t stop with the restaurant employees, either. Vendors who deliver everything from buns to burgers to disposable cups and napkins will be affected if restaurants serve fewer customers or shut down altogether. I’d like to see a reporter at one of these protests ask these dopes “what if?” questions — like what if fewer customers come to the restaurant and an employee who is not needed is let go, or what if a worker’s duties increase because there are fewer people to do those duties, I’d like to hear their answers or maybe just see that “deer in the headlights” look.

    Just saw an employment opportunity on the local news for a police officer working on a college campus. Pay started between $12 and $16 an hour. And these fast food workers have some fantasy of making $15?? If they believe that can happen without repercussions, doesn’t that prove how undeserving of this raise they really are? And this idiot president is no help, standing behind raising the minimum wage. Well, when his “fans” find themselves unemployed, maybe one of them will have the opportunity to stand in front of the president and ask HIM to explain how it could have backfired.

    They’ll learn that the same automation that can put a combination phone, media player, camera and computer in the palm of their hand can also eliminate their position. Cool when it benefits YOU, not so cool when it benefits your former employer.

    I think they should get the raise . . . THEN get a real taste of the law of unintended consequences: “Whoo hoo! We got that $15 an hour wage! Wait . . . so now I’m working ten hours a week instead of 20? . . . Wow, business sure has slowed down lately. Well, people DO come to the drive up, but they keep driving off without ordering. I wonder if it’s because the Big Mac is now $6.79? And now, the Happy Meal is $5.25 . . . . . That one person who DID order told me I’d BETTER get his order right after I told him his total would be $9.29 for the #7 Combo. Boy, if things keep up like this, they might have to let one of us go . . . . I don’t get it, I thought things were gonna be great once we got this raise.”
