Lovely. Let's dumb down the next generation more than previous generations by providing a third diploma requiring only proof of being able to text using only the idiotic abbreviations that the current generation takes for grammar. Better yet, just give a diploma for participation. The final exams would be to prove competence at World of Warcraft, HALO 1, 2, 3 and all current popular video games, to be able to text at a rate of at least 10 texts per minute, the ability to give a detailed definition of the letters OMG, and to be able to say "Would you want fries with that", and how to ride a skateboard down a totally sick halfpipe. Oh, and the ability to know when and how to use the term ""Whatev". Well, the next generation has computers, autocorrect, and calculators, so who needs education. When I look back on my school life, working for a living, and being responsible for my family, I still think graduating high school was the easiest thing I did. If you can't make a commitment to learn and and succeed at this thing, I would remember a line from a John Wayne movie "Life's Hard. It's Harder if your'e Stupid.
Wow. I think Arlene is off her meds again.
The prosecutors in this town don't seem to have any desire to try these people, and take the easy way out. They may have to actually do some hard work to get a conviction. But they can softball the charges and get an easy conviction. And then after threatening the lives of not only the victims, but potentially the lives of police officers, they recommend the low end of the possible sentence. Epic. Maybe we can get the defense attorneys to prosecute these cases. The results would be the same, and we could save the cost of the prosecuting attorneys.
Again with the buying votes bull. the conservatives unload the "giving gifts" excuse Romney came up with to cover his defeat, and the faithful swallow it with the blind gullibility that Republicans exhibit. Realize that George W. poisoned the well so thoroughly that he gave the White House to the Democrats for two terms. And, for the first time that I can remember, The Repubs distanced themselves from Bush so far they wouldn't even invite its two term president to the convention! Then on top of it all, Bill Clinton campaigned for the President, and helped! This is what President Rove and Vice-President Bush did to screw this country up. Blame the Republicans and their policies that put us where we are today.
Roberta parrots the Romney excuse of the President winning because of his "gifts" to minorities. And on top of it, actually quoting the pillhead moron Rush Limbaugh to add some creedence to her rant. If Romney were to win, it would be the gifts he would give to the very rich in the form of tax cuts. If the people of this country actually believe the Republicans would cut the taxes of the middle class, they are as crazy as the Republicans believe they are.
I certainly would not say he deserved to die. I am not the one to decide this. But he got himself into a situation that ended in it happening. If he hadn't been where did not have the right to be, doing an act he HAD to know was hazardous and a crime,, he put himself in harms way. The lesson is simple. Had he not been committing a felony, he would still be with the family who says they love him. You pays your money and you takes your chance. Learn from other's mistakes. It's too late for Cesar.
