No, and the high school has 6 brand new plasma TV's in the cafeteria!

Not gonna sit and ***** either. Our bus driver started a petition and all the parents affected will be at the next board meeting, in force. We have something here called count day. For every student in school on count day the school gets X amount of money. No kids, no cash. Perhaps a little John Deere flu epidemic will help them see the light, at least until the next election!

I have 2-

#1-Strangers that interject themselves into your conversation with another person. I won't go there but I will say, the person that does it is a male and always from this "group of people". Hands done, always butting in like they know every damn thing.

I'm not talking to you. Mind your own bee's-wax.

#2- People that just say silly s**t to you out of the blue.

How about a voodoo doll? Arts and crafts are therapeutic.

I'd go with the voodoo doll. No ballistics to be traced.

Fans that break and poorly made junk. Don't look at them wrong, if they happen to fall over, they are history, or just up and quit when practically new. I wonder exactly how much it costs them to make one of these Chinese pieces of junk, how much they pay the workers, and what the mark up is on the crappy product. I remember as a kid, things use to last. My parents had a Refrig that last lasted over 30yrs. Fan were metal and were made to last, as were a/c's and other products. Window a/c's are the same way, just junk. Oh, but they gotta a remote, so pple don't have to get up. I had a cheap can opener actually fall apart in my hands the first time i tried to use it. My Vet is still using his old can opener from 1975, and think how many cans of food he opened with it in all these years. Some might say cheap products, but not when you factor in how long they last. And they count on people pitching their receipts for those small items. They win the consumer loses... but hey let's give big business another tax break or bail out. They sit and ponder about the debt, and on the other hand have spent how much on Bushy's war in all these years.

I'd be afraid of ones made in China. Anything could happen. Insist on some made in Haiti. If you are going to do a job do it right. Someone is sure to import them. Maybe Google has instructions on how to make your own.

Sure, gotta get the genuine product to do the job right. Though, the Siquijor island in the Philippines has a substantial black magic past as well. Or do it yourself and save, a handy arts and crafts product to ease the troubled mind.
