Re: “The Daily Links: Israeli Intelligence and The Greatest Story Never Told

Never be ashamed of deriding the conservative lie. I hate some of the demagogs here, but I don't hate all republiconned people. They're decent enough people, just been duped. Who's got time to sort fact from fiction when you struggle the way low income people have to. Mortgages, utilities, healthcare, insurance. And their schtick is designed to appeal to their lowest common denominator. Greed, fear, selfishness, xenophobia, misogyny, distrust of academics and science. Knee-jerk topics.

Re: “The Skinny on MNPS' TCAP Scores

While Eng III is still horrible, the major reason it drops so much after English II is that by 11th grade the better students have moved into AP & IB classes and no longer take state tests. The top 40% of student achievers aren't tested in English III.

Re: “The Daily Links: Jon Bon Jovi, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Gambler's Fallacy

This bullshit "suit" only fires up our base. Might make a razor's difference in a close midterm. The republiCONS surely wouldn't make a habit of shooting themselves in the foot would they? It's a jihad on a sitting president and there's no turning back. The tea-hadists are right behind them goading them with sharp sticks, threatening their incumbency. haha.

Re: “The Skinny on MNPS' TCAP Scores

JC, I think you are running scared.

So just tough if you happen to be a poor kid who wants/can learn. I would not admit to that. Too bad, return to your chaotic school staffed by poorly educated union protected teachers, you are not getting a charter from us, And, God forbid a voucher.

You have gotten your money, your small classes, good teacher salaries, a little music,maybe some art.... maybe a multicultural dance group, all you wanted and the scores are miserable. Proficient? Skilled, competent, that's what it means. And few meet that standard, very few.

Allow me an aside. I even hear a third new math is on the way (NYT). The Times says, without cracking a smile, problem is the teachers do not understand it.

Re: “The Daily Links: Israeli Intelligence and The Greatest Story Never Told

Prag,

If I did murmur a prayer at bedtime, it would be for the souls on this board who really hate the hard working, God fearing man, the conservative. Some on this board should be ashamed of themselves.

As for my adequacy, I do the best I can, God knows I try.

Re: “The Daily Links: Israeli Intelligence and The Greatest Story Never Told

No.

john, your delusions of adequacy have been getting worse lately.

When you pray in the morning, do you say, "Hi, God. It's john. Do you have any questions you need me to answer for you?"

Re: “"Duck Dynasty" the Albatross Around Franklin Company's Neck?

Phil compared homosexuality to bestiality and termed it an abomination. THAT was what got GLAAD upset.

Re: “The Skinny on MNPS' TCAP Scores

Only three school districts in the area improved more than MNPS, and most of them regressed. You can sing the blues all you wish for public funding of private schools and school choice, but the fact still remains that the mission of public schools is to educate ALL the students to the best of their ability.

My people are those conservatives and libertarians, good people, not of the left/liberal or- "your" people. What is your point.?

Heh, heh. Do you think PITW posted the recent transgender link because of my timely posts?

Can't agree that Victoria Jackson is the heart of WilCo. We prefer to think of her as a gangrenous appendix or swollen bunion. Something that needs to be removed.
