[quote][b]concerned citizen in athens[/b] - "Officers noticed that the woman sported fresh injuries and charged Pumadera with two counts of battery, police said."
Somehow this style of reporting lends an attitude of insensitivity to the plight of the victim.
I hope that bad writing was just on the part of the paper and not in the police report.

Okay, so here's the filing:
and can I just say that this guy is completely coocoocachoo and his attorney should be sued for taking advantage of him by giving him any idea that he has anything resembling a winnable case. Also, someone is a money-grubber.

Let me take this another way.
Medicaid income limits need to be raised. The expansion is correct.
Tying it to the rest of that pile of garbage legislation was the first blackmail of the American public committed by this president.
That part should have stood alone and should not have been contingent on ANYTHING. It's 100% a no brainer.
Instead, the choice you were given was all of this crap plus this one good idea or NOTHING.posted @ Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 06:19

[quote][b]avenger[/b] - @melmarino: theold33 said: Obama's sign language interpreter called a fake at Mandela's Memorial. According to sign language experts, Obama's sign language interpreter was just waving his arms around and signing gibberish. Well, what else is new. Everything that comes out of this administration is gibberish.
I was just affirming if he and Digdug knew that the interpreter was not associated with Obama. He was an interpreter assigned by the South African authorities.
Ah, mel, you continue to ride the pony backwards. [/quote]

Rhetorical questions usually convey a position or make a point, as in, "You knew that, right?" which indicates that if you did not know that that you are somehow intellectually deficient or at least not qualified on the topic. Kind of like some people and any issue with words meaning things.

@nowheregirl: Well, now here is what is messed up. I know this man was calling to scam me talkin' with that accent I know so well from someplace that isn't home. Telling me on the voicemail that he wants to talk to me about credentialing then asking me what I know about his missing daughter. The police know he was trying to scam me, but, and here is what makes me crazy, I didn't fall for it so the man didn't commit a crime. Police just doing their thing trying to listen to me and still be nice when they just want to go home and not be bothered with one more person. No gripe about them from me. No way. Just stinks that I know later today this man will get someone who will fall for it.posted @ Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 14:44
Remember too that Clinton also left the ANC on the terrorist organization list as well where it remained until 2008.
In addition, the Comprehensive Anti=Apartheid Act was a truly wonderful example of bipartisanship when congressmen and senators joined forces to override the presidential veto.
There is nothing to lionize in Reagan's veto, but a lot to lionize in the bipartisan override.posted @ Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 10:57

[quote][b]davidxto[/b] - Our entrenched liberal beliefs about the equality and fairness of educational opportunities would balk over the idea that some students should be directed toward technical educations at a young age and separated from their classmates who continue a more liberal arts open ended education.

That's fine when that's what the kid wants, but you well know that the German system is not voluntary. Tell a kid at 10 yrs. old what s/he'll be! Hogwash!
However, I agree with career academies as CCSD has them now. They have to be voluntary, though.posted @ Sunday, December 8, 2013 - 13:55
Common Core is very similar to the system in Germany. First, you need to realize that such a system will, by necessity, segregate children by academic aptitude very early - around age 10. Common Core forces teachers to teach the test. That's what will happen. This will lower the ability of teachers to be creative in their classrooms; to allow their students to exceed standards when possible; to guide materials and delivery based on VAK (and @Myra Blackmon: , you should be well aware as an educator of this weakness of Common Core) in order to teach the way the children learn and not force the children to learn in the way the teacher teaches.
Common Core is an embarrassment and an insult to creative teachers who believe in the intelligence of their students. We will end up with the problem of a workforce that cannot create but merely replicate.

No, this is what you said. The rest was just qualifiers. These kids are not on overstayed visas.
[quote]I said they aren't criminals if they overstayed visas. None of the code you cited applies to the plaintiffs in this case, and, not in every case obviously, but more often than not, the codes you cited do not apply to undocumented immigrants generally because most overstayed visas but did not enter illegally.[/quote]
