Oh I am as I stated in my first post on this particular thread. I just think that we need more reforms than just extending the school year. At least Obama is trying to address these issues.

And completely misrepresented what I actually said in my post. How 'bout you get over it and stop doing that. Good riddance.

LOLs.

What drivel.

Grow up sweetie. This is a grown up board.

You let us grown people discuss these serious issues.

You just go back and be all paranoid about the Bible being taught and Roe v Wade being overturned. You libs are all the same.

Good riddance sweetie-pie.

Indoctrinating kids utilizing robots programmed with Obama ideology to teach the classes? Is that what you are saying?

I wasn't here to fight.

And you have nothing either.

Doesn't matter if Bush wanted creationism taught. He didn't do anything about requiring it be taught. So your point is drivel.

Obama said he wants single payer healthcare. Then he turns around and says he doesn't. But then gets upset when people says he wants it.


I find you boorish. Being all paranoid because the former president liked the idea of teaching creationism. He didn't do it, yet that's all you want to talk about? Yawn.

Bye Bye.

Have you noticed that the right wingers use an inordinate amount of silly grinning faces and head slapping icons? Just an observation.
