I taught kindergarten in a school with 95% hispanic, 4% black, and 1% white demographic. The hispanic parents, while very supportive of their child's education, were the ones who would approach me and tell me not to pair their child with black students or to put them in a group with blacks. It was pretty shocking.......you know, for a person of white privilege. (fwiw, I grew up in the city of Milwaukee during desegregation/bussing, so I'm not a suburban princess.....not that there's anything wrong with that.)
A humorous example of my student's worldview: On the way to our field trip destination, I was riding on the bus with my students. He was holding my hand and looking very carefully at our hands together. "Teacher? You not black?" "No." "You Mexican." "No." "But you not black?" "No, I'm not black." "Then you Mexican." "No, I'm not Mexican, either." There was a looooooong pause before he, finally, said, "Teacher? You WHITE?" "Yes." "No, you ain't. You Mexican." He just couldn't wrap his mind around the fact that my skin color was outside of his realm of experience. I am the whitest of the white; blonde hair, green eyes, and he couldn't reconcile the category from his world where I fit.
Ever since that day, I, sometimes, self-identify as Mexican.

Actually RJ I drive through this exact area all the time heading form Biloxi to Houston. I was at the McDonalds just on that road not even two weeks ago! There is a place you see in the pictures where many officers stop to buy food/drinks.
2 of the 3 officers have now been confirmed deceased.
Correction, heard earlier that three officers were shot. Have now heard that the number is four.
RJ that number is up to EIGHT
Just reported, one suspect dead, two on the loose.
This has got to stop. Citizens need to step up and protect our officers.

Not coming to my sleepy town, but I plan on staying home none the less.

Technically, I already live in the country. Unfortunately.. some of my neighbors…well I’m hoping they leave early to protest when SHTF and don’t come back.

My husband wants to install a giant cattle guard on the zombie apocalypse vehicle. AKA the passenger van we haul the hoard of children around in. It’s hard to bug out when the takers shut down the ways out of town.
7 kids? My dear, you are amazing! I have 3 that wear me out! Lol.
The women are always FAT.

There is a difference between being afraid of scuffed knees, and preventing accidents which can actually kill. Just because you did something and nothing bad happened, doesn’t mean it’s not a dumb idea, doesn’t mean it can’t cause serious harm. You probably think we are pansies for using car seats too.

Nate1014, I have 7 children and all of my furniture that can fall over IS bolted to the wall. Considering we have to move every few years it’s a huge undertaking and yet it’s still done. Any other dumb remarks?

AH a democrat in it’s natural habitat…. California.

I saw this earlier on another website, and it’s the biggest bunch of crap ever.
The Blaze did not include the interview with one of the mothers, where she boldly displayed her stupidity for the world to see; claiming, that she didn’t think to mount the furniture to the wall (despite the instruction manual claiming you should and including hardware to do so) and that she didn’t think you should have to.
Is all of your furniture that can fall over, bolted to your wall? I don't care if the instructions say to do so or not, do you need a set of instructions to think for you? Your dressers, your end tables, night stands, entertainment centers, everything more than 30 inches tall, bolt to your walls, then you can criticize a parent for their child climbing on something and it falling over.
I can remember when I was six, and my brother was seven, climbing on top of our dresser and opening the top drawer where we put our feet and pretending we were in a fire engine. We were having the time of our life. It could have tipped over, we might have been hurt, or worse.
Please, wrap your children in bubble wrap, and make them wear helmets, knee pads and elbow pads until they are 18.
My sister when she was very young tripped on the carpet and hit her head on the corner of the coffee table. She got four stitches for that one. So, who was at fault? My parents for not bolting the carpet to the floor, or the coffee table maker for not having smooth padded corners.
I'm living in the age of insanity.
We had one dresser in our boys' room that was bolted. Because boys-- especially when toddlers - climb.
We had some bookcases -- admittedly IKEA -like crap -- also BOLTED to the walls.
Accidents happen. No matter how attentive and careful you are.
On the other hand, one of my boys threw a NERF sword at the other and almost cut his eyebrow off. A Nerf sword...ya know??? Supposedly all foam and very safe. They were playing like boys play.
Ya can't wrap em in bubble wrap....
.....but you can make them safer with very little effort-- like bolting high furniture to the wall.

Yes, they think they are better than us. He believes he is the lord and master, and that the rules only apply to the poor serfs. He said deserves, before he caught himself. He thinks he deserves more than his fat paycheck and kickbacks from lobbyists to burn our country to the ground.
Totally off topic but had to say how beautiful your babies are. Pics like that are always good for the soul :-)
Hey, some online news sources and blogs have been seriously comparing this to OWS already.
The Lord has all the power to wipe out all these terrorists. Why hasn't he caused another one of his world-wide floods or sent angels to speak with anybody?
I guess if you truly get down to the bottom of all this terrorism, it is God who is to blame for sitting by and letting this evil fester.

Where are the feminists? Guess they don’t care if this loser is a wife beater so long as he’s on their side.
