I'm not a right winger.

And now you feign innocence and claim to not have wanted a fight?

Riiiiiiiiiiight.

You misrepresented me when you said I was a right winger. ASSuming, I guess.

Then you insert topics (teaching the Bible) in posts before I did.

Then you talk about how Roe v Wade is going to be overturned.

Yeah, I would say you post drivel.

The falling back on namecalling and frantic attempts to divert, because you´ve got nothing, is SOP rightie ¨argument¨ style.
That's great. What's yout point? I'm not a rightie.

We were talking about creationism being taught in the classroom. Not about a prayer being said at graduation.

Oh, perhaps the same number of subjects that were cut so kids from schools in the Gulf Coast could learn the "Bush song" they sang to Laura a couple years ago.

At the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, children from the stricken Gulf Coast region serenaded First Lady Laura Bush with a song praising the beleaguered Federal Emergency Management Agency.

To the tune of Hey Look Me Over, about 100 young children from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama sang:

Our country’s stood beside us
People have sent us aid.
Katrina could not stop us, our hopes will never fade.
Congress, Bush and FEMA
People across our land
Together have come to rebuild us and we join them hand-in-hand!

. . .

Where were you whining about whether this was good stewardship of the childrens' time by the educational system back then, huh?

Bush isn't president.

You all finally got what you wanted. Bush and Cheney out of office.

Yet, you still keep talking about them.

You're obsessed.

Seems like the common denominator in this equation is stupidity from the educational system in how they spend their time. I guess you just saw the word Obama, so of course that must immediately be followed by a Bush link. I just saw a waste of the students' time no matter which President they were singing about.

And I would suggest that you try posting on the subject matter of the thread topic and stop making posts that are 100% filled with nonsense about me. You have a problem with me personally, report my posts to a moderator.

[quote=Chatteress;10944098] While we are at it, let's get rid of the top heavily, overpaid management and pour more of the funding inside the classroom where teachers do not have to pay for the supplies out of pocket (which is ridiculus!).[/quote]

This is the same with higher education. While the UC system was trying to decide how much to raise tuition and cut our pay (staff and faculty) they gave over 6 million dollars in raises, perks, and the creation of new executive positions. These are the top 1.5% of the workforce within the UC system and they have NO student contact.

The money given to the school systems rarely make it to the classroom and to the rank and file that run the school on a day to day basis. It goes to the exec's.

I'm sorry but you are beginning to look ridiculous. She isn't talking about Roe vs Wade nor is she calling you a right winger. It just sounds as if you are picking a fight with Jill. Can we get back on subject instead of having this thread highjacked by this useless arguments. Thank you.
