'F' Is for Firearm: More Teachers Authorized to Carry Weapons in Classroom
Mon Sep 22, 2014
And people wonder why the homeschool movement is growing. I have very good friends and family members who are teachers, a few of them with CC permits, but I do not want them in the situation where they have a gun in the classroom--way too many chances for things to go very wrong. Kids steal purses f …
DC Navy Yard rampage: 'We have the sole person responsible'
Wed Sep 25, 2013
In reply to: oneStarman #1.7No, people with guns and bullets kill people--that is what a gun is designed to do. A hammer is designed to drive a nail, an axe to chop wood, and a gun to kill. Hammers and axes can be used to kill, but that is not their primary purpose, nor do they kill as many as fast. …
Community will ticket parents of chronic bullies
Mon Jun 3, 2013
Wow, you must teach in a school like my daughter's! I guess you don't supervise hallways, playgrounds or cafeterias either, and just call it "one child's story against another's" instead of bullying if a teacher doesn't see it. I know I have been told that the scrapes from the cinderblock wall …
School shooting drill in Illinois included sound of gunfire
Wed Jan 30, 2013
I am currently living in a very bad school district (as in educational bad--do the worksheet, sit quietly until everyone else finishes, get punished for doing anything else or for asking too many questions) and have been forced into homeschooling. It has been my wish and desire to send my daughter b …

Believenothinguread, are you really that ignorant about American History? How about starting with the Patriots who stood against the conservitives who believed in the Divine Right of Kings, move on to the Abolitionists, follow them up with the labor movement which brought us the 40 hr work week, the …
NRA head: Controversial ad 'wasn't about the president's daughters'
Thu Jan 17, 2013
I recieved NRA gun training as a pre-teen, and used to have a lot of respect for the organization. I don't anymore. The president of the NRA is a liar and, in my untrained opinion, a psychopath who should never have access to a gun because he values the gun over lives. I support the 2nd amendment, b …
Scarborough: NRA is protecting gun manufacturers, not the Second Amendment
Fri Nov 8, 2013
"They didn't die to defend "regulated" freedom of speech, or "regulated" freedom to bear arms." But I guess they fought to regulate a womans womb, who's religious views should be enshrined in law, who can marry, and everything else that is regulated by law in your opinion. (and by the way, free spee …

West Point cadet quits, cites 'criminal' behavior of officers
Tue Dec 4, 2012
There have been a number of incidents of religious worship and events made manditory for soldiers since 9/11. They have been reported on in the Army Times, but few have made it to national news coverage. They tend to be hushed up, unless they involve a lot of money spent on the "entertainment." A pr …

Fri Nov 30, 2012
My 10 yr old daughter confused Santa this year by asking for American Girl doll stuff and robotics and physics kits. High on her list is the Thames & Kosmos Physics Pro kit.
