that is hilarious! video gamers! wait till the jack booted thugs kick in the door and kill a kid. iRead More wonder if these types of police are needed in this day and age. the real danger is the police, the video gamers are lost in the digital age and enjoy a good prank. most of you people are afraid to live, these cops are locked and loaded and looking for a shoot out. police procedure needs to be re-examined. bearing false witness......

First, let me say that I fully believe that any human being who molests a woman, a child or anotherRead More man should be punished to the full extent of the law. That aaid, there are many things about this case that do not ring true for me. First, there is the delay between the alleged event and it being reported. Secondlly, these women seem to have similar backgrounds. I would be much nore beiieving if the women reported these alleged offenses and said,"This officer groped me and I'll take a lie detector test to prove it." As I said, I have reasonable doubts!!!
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions.

Personally, I'm tired of the racism in sports, where ONE race gets almost all of the attention. It'sRead More time for REAL change. Until sports reflects the multicultural face of America, nothing else should.

outstanding....no more cutting in line.....finally the Supreme court has some balls

mob mentality. people on this thread dont even understand the ruling. tt, the comparison toRead More sports is absurd. baseball 8% black. hockey? swimming? etc. i dont hear complaints by minority leaders complaing about every facet of life. there is a belief that low test scores , a dearth of black ceo's , etc must be explained by some measure of systemic discrimination. women do it. minorities. heck go to any youth sports program and youll find parents complaing about playing time and favoritism. people complain. sometimes theyre right.
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

"Very few have the ability to use critical thinking skills to analyze information. In fact, itRead More sometimes seems painful for them to think out of the box. Our students should be able to understand the reasoning that needs to be applied to find solutions, especially when it isn't exactly what they've seen before, so they can apply those skill to address the many issues they will encounter in the future. " :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: The Common Core Standards require critical thinking skills. It should be a great improvement over what we had previously.

"IF there were meaningful differences between the CC -"aligned" curricula."Read More Read the Standards, Jennifer. It really doesn't take much to develop curriculum that aligns with the standard. All of the traditional maths that we took as kids can be 'CC aligned' with minor adjustments--adding more 'story' problems to the mix would go a long way toward meeting the Standards.
Jeanne Miller April 23, 2014 at 07:37 am
Another great thing the Common Core will do for our students is to prepare them for theRead More "flipped classroom," where they view lectures (online) as homework, then work problems collaboratively in class, with the help of the teacher. This will prepare them for college, since the flipped class is the new model for teaching. This puts more responsibility on the students to be prepared for class so that they can engage in learning activities...and they really learn! A good analogy is, if someone drives you to a location, you may or may not be able to get there yourself another time. If you drive yourself, you'll remember!

Where are the stories about the rates charged by the Cable cartels-???---Especially Leftist,Read More Democratic Comcast, the premier robber barons, who fill the campaign tills of the Dumocrats.
Paul April 22, 2014 at 06:10 pm
Netflix is hands down the best deal going, and it has been a bargain for YEARS. I guess theRead More nonsensical whiners who complain about a long-delayed, $2 a MONTH increase are worried it will cost them a (partial) SINGLE LATTE. Utterly ridiculous.
Gregg L. DesElms April 23, 2014 at 07:36 am
TO MICHAEL BRENNICK: Leftist, Democra... WHAT? You think Comcast is part of the so-calledRead More "liberal" media (which, by the way, doesn't even exist)? Are you freakin' KIDDIN' me? [shakes head in disbelief] Wow. The FOX NEWS CHANNEL should be held criminally liable for what it has done to your brain.

THIS COUNTRY TOOK A $HIT WHEN THE SUPREME COURT TOOK AWAY THE KICK IN THE A$$ AT HOME AND AT SCHOOLRead More THEY PUT THE KIDS ON DRUGS. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ?YEARS AGO THERE WERE NO ALPABETIZED SINDROMES THIS IS HOW HEAD SHRINKERS PUSH DRUGS FOR DRUG COMPANEYS
Kim Fox April 22, 2014 at 03:42 pm
I don't believe this kid is competent enough to make those decisions. Those kids need to beRead More prosecuted to the fullest and if the does judge does not agree he needs to step down.

Dorie, stowing away on a plane is a crime. And no, the boy himself did not pose a threat. But theRead More fact that he (anyone) can get that close to a plane poses a threat. I have to take off my flippin' shoes and get patted down, but apparently you can just walk up and plant a bomb in the wheel well.
april ann April 22, 2014 at 10:30 am
I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!

It wasn't a miracle that he survived, it was Easter Sunday, and good things always happen.Read More "always look on the bright side of life"......Life of Brian........overlooked miracle worker....... Not a problem to let other kids of similar intelligence do the same thing, it will improve the human gene pool immensely, and the human race will benefit overall as a result.

Surprised that anything was said to her. We went to WDW and had a woman behind us on Small World whoRead More was breastfeeding without covering up. We have no problem with breast feeding your baby - just cover yourself. It should be a private moment with you and your baby. A older man asked her to cover up. She was apologized to and is still whining. 15 minutes are up.

Dee honey, your God can blow me. I am under no obligation to follow the rules of your personalRead More faith nor am I obliged to harken to your personal translations of your holy text. Your beliefs are yours. Personally I think Fundamentalists such as you are a great and evil plague on society.

I don't think were doing starving people any favors by sending them hot dogs that might make themRead More sick.

Just another argument for KOSHER hot dogs..... All of the great taste and NONE OF THE CRAP !

Poland has already outlawed kosher killing as inhumane--it involves voiding the arteries of theRead More animal's tainted blood while it is still alive....The US will soon follow despite its Jewish lobby.

Agranon - I'm a moron because I am tired of everybody and his mother trying to put themselves inRead More every story? Then so be it - I'm a moron. To be honest, I am also really tired of all the people that were compelled to run the Boston Marathon because "I had to finish for all those who couldn't." Get over yourself. It was a tragedy. Those responsible should be ripped apart by dogs. I sincerely hope the families of those affected can move on somehow. But how does Mary Jane Smith running the marathon help ANYBODY but herself? She's not doing it for "those who can't". She's doing it to maybe get on TV and she's probably feeling a little sanctimonious because she ran 26.2 miles and you didn't. It's like, "what did YOU do to help these people?" Same as you - nothing.
