This actually happened in my county. I was appalled to hear about this going home with 8 year olds and very shocked it would have gone home. At our school in the same county each grade has the same coarse work. If third grade is leaning multiplication they were all doing the same worksheets and tests. This teacher did not follow proper protocol. This is in appropriate on every level. There was no social or moral context to these questions. This teacher or any one else that approved this assignment to go home should be fired.
This has made the local, state, and now national media. I saw it mentioned on Fox News, Parents magazine and now the Talk, a new celebrity talk show. It is just absolutely appalling and I really do hope that this teacher will be fired. The slave question was bad enough but there was a question about how many beatings Fredrick Douglas received and that is outrageous. I hope this national attention will put pressure on the school and county to fire all involved.
I have always liked Sarah Palin. Two things that disturbed me though. She says she is pro life but while she was Governor she appointed a judge who was known to be pro choice. The second is her endorsement of Karen Handel for Georgia’s Governors race. Not only did Karen Handel give 1.2 million dollars over three years to Planned Parenthood but she was also a member of the Log Cabin Republicans (it is a group organized by the gay members of the GOP). This is a post from the Atlanta Journal Constitution discussing her membership. Georgia Voice has an a post out in which records show Karen Handel was a member of this group and she continued to work closely with Yeagar even in recent years, who was a leader in LCG. Here is another blog post on her endorsement of the gay agenda.
She is a liberal in conservative clothing. It is appalling. Karen Handel was the only candidate in the Repulican slew that was not endorsed by the Georgia Right To Life. How can Sarah Palin knowingly support someone who claims one thing but cannot get a prolife endorsement. I could not stand her before I heard this but the fact that Sarah Palin criticizes Obama on abortion issues and on the homosexual agenda is just hypocritical. How can you consciously endorse someone who is the very opposite of what you portray?
Karen Hadel also accused her opponets of ethics violations when she herself has been accused and is being investigated for her own ethics violations. I am so sick of politicians. I want fresh, real people in here who truly care about the issues and not just fame and power.
If she wins the nomination, I may for the first time in my life vote democrat. She is not qualified, she lies, she has not finished one job that she has started and she is the exact opposite of what she portrays.
I have lost all respect for Sarah Palin. She has been such a disappointment and I really thought she was different.
Folks you need to do your research. Do not vote for someone based on celebrity endorsement, vote based on your convictions. Knowing your vote is going to change our world!
If you have a Face book account and you sign up as a fan for Einstein Brother’s Bagels. You can print a coupon for a free bagel and cream cheese. I do not know where their locations are but we have a few here in Georgia. I love their bagels. My favorite is the cinnamon raisin bagel with honey butter or plain cream cheese. Yummy!
For two weeks it rained, and rained and rained. The sunshine was no where to be found. This did not mean to much until Sunday night when the bottom fell out but not just for a few minutes it was hours it rained and the lightening was so bad none of us could sleep. So we were all up all night long praying and hoping it would pass. Finally, at 5 AM it did and I fell fast asleep. I found out at 8:30 that schools were delayed then cancelled due to the flooding conditions in our area. My 7 year old slept until 9:30. It was unreal. I have lived here all my life and I have never seen anything like this. It rained all day Monday and stormed then our power finally went out. I realized when my 3 year old was cranky that she had a 103 temp. I started to panic because the roads around here were closed and our power was out and it was pouring rain. I cried out to God. I gave her tylenol and motrin and finally the fever started to come down. Our power came back on and I watched her through the night. The next day I made my way over to our pediatricians office through many round about ways and after waiting a long time found out my baby had an ear infection. This is our story but so many people lost their homes or cars or their life. It was very sad and eye opening at the same time. My heart and prayers go out to all those who lost something whether it was their home or their life. The Flood of 2009 in Georgia will not be forgotten.
This is the craziest thing I have ever heard. An 11 year old girl is being deported back to Poland because her parents attorney at the time made a mistake in the her paperwork. This is terrible. They let terrorist run around here and do nothing but this little girl that has done nothing wrong is about to be sent back to a country she knows nothing about. My prayers are with this family. Here is her story.
