Can’t compete then just stop supporting the school with your property taxes!

Why would any self respecting teacher want to deal with any of this – it is no wonder the inner city schools are failing so badly. I can’t imagine that the quality teachers would want to stick around for this!

From the mouths of babes…why is it that they get it? They are probably tired of being in class with belligerent students that could care less about their education and simply want to infringe on the education of others.

I think she is more familiar with the phrase “victim while black”. Apparently cops cannot talk to her without her becoming a victim. The mere thought of a verbal conversation instantly transforms her – its pretty amazing.
I’m sure Obama will say the “police acted stupidly”, I mean this woman went to Harvard you know!

I have nothing against Cruz and I think he’d be a great President, but the sad irony of the Wednesday night’s “debate” was that those who “scored” did so by calling out crappy moderators. There was little to no substance and no points were won on the issues that matter. This is not Cruz’s fault, but rather his point when he launched the now infamous Curz Missile. It’s just sad that polls can be swayed by such trivial things.

Last night is the one night I wish Trump was his old self. The opening question about his being a comic book presidency should have set Trump off. He should have responded by saying that the question being asked by a comic book moderator does not justify an answer!

Assuming that you are correct (which you are not) – how would you propose that we prevent people who want to commit suicide from getting a gun?

So let me see if I got this straight:
If she didn’t admit to doing it, what she didn’t do was bad enough to remove her from the classroom.
However, because she said she did do it, then what she did do is not bad enough to remove her from the classroom.
Sounds perfectly reasonable to me!

In staying with the pattern of questioning set during the democratic national debate, do black lives matter or do blue lives matter?
 October 28, 2015 at 9:58am
I have a few questions I’d like to put on this test:
Obama is a Christian
Obama is a Muslim
Obama cares about police officers
All lives matter
Blue lives matter
Benghazi was the result of a video
Hillary has cooperated with her email investigation
Planned Parenthood never did anything illegal
There was not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS
I’m sure you creative people may be able to help us out here…

In a world in which everyone can claim to be offended and thus a new politically correct rule is written, I have to admit that this is pretty offensive, just ask the two women that were survivors of botched abortions who testified in front of congress.

I’m thinking this must be the cause of Global Climate Change, we have drunken comets spewing! Time to start selling comet credits.

What evidence would convince you that you are not just a complete accident?
October 26, 2015 at 12:10pm
Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.
The scientists’ religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection.

Why could an ‘all powerful’ God that is capable of creating something from nothing not create that in 6 days? Why would you put that restriction on an ‘all powerful’ God?

There is an estimated 11+ million conceal carry permits in the US…if vigilantism was their objective, statistics would reveal a much higher percentage of killings. So if the people who choose to commit suicide didn’t have a conceal carry license – they’d still be alive today?
If the people who chose to commit suicide didn't have easy access to a gun, yes, some of them would still be alive today. Some would have found other means, many would not. The reason for this is that guns make killing yourself ridiculously easy, fast, and permanent.
Take a bunch of pills? You can throw them up.
Try to choke on your car's exhaust? You can turn the car off.
Pull the trigger on the gun aimed at your head? There's no changing your mind on that one.

Would he be under such scrutiny if he had refused to make a cake with a confederate flag on top for a bunch of white supremacists?

Ben always has thoughtful and thought provoking answers to which there never seems to be any additional discussion. The only thing that will come out of this interview is that Ben Carson wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and that even in the case of rape & incest the woman would be forced to have that baby. Just like they did to him when they asked him if gays are born that way and he answered, ‘have you seen the statistics of people who go into prison straight and come out gay?’ and immediately he was a homophobe…let’s not discuss the issues, but rather slander the individual.

This does not sound like a guy with “very little management skills”: Dr. Carson became the youngest physician to ever head a major division at Johns Hopkins. He is currently the director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, a position he has held since 1984, and a professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery, and pediatric medicine.
