Yes, assembly attendance is mandatory. Yes, any child who cares to, is free to remain silent during the recitation, according to school rules. Playground rules may differ, depending on the number of children in attendance, whose parents are fundamentalist Christians.
(Roughly half of any given Public School in my 'RED' state.)
Those 'Christian Schools' are NOT free tuition, unless one can prove need. Most have 3 open scholarship spots, for church members, per year.
You do the math.
OK. I got the part about your experiences.

But what the hell is this about fundamental Christians, Playgrounds, free tuition, scholarship spots and my doing the math?

Is this lily on another drunk? Hello?

All Americans have responsibility for the National Debt. Whether any particular 'class' accepts that responsibility or not, is apparently in question in Congress.
Are you willing to reduce the debt, or not?
Are you willing to get a job, give up your 6 free cellphones and banging every swinging d*ck for Food Stamps, free rent and not knowing who your kids fathers are(rhetorically speaking, of course)?

You don't state why you think this. Are you just making a rhetorical statement like you might when complaining about the weather, a stomach ache, flatulence or adult acne?

Did GOPidiots - The World's Greatest Teacher - make that diagnosis for you, urban boy?

Whenever I hit the nail on the head, you little munchkins scurry about through your sawdust-bedding dens looking for poop to throw back. It's completely nonsensical, irrelevant and has no power to elucidate, clarify or blunt my post regarding the topic at hand but you through it nonetheless like palestinian punks throwing stones at Israeli soldiers. Cute. But stupid.

No.

You accused Carol of lying. She doesn't lie, per se, she's just prone to parrot 'conservative' rhetoric.

She happens to believe it. Therefore, she's not lying, she's convinced.

He also blew it big time during the 2010 Republican response speech where he performed at eighth grade level. And the US is not ready for another brown guy with a funny name.
BTW, Mother Jones just put up a list of the dumbest things DeMint said.
I'm working on the dumbest things and the biggest lies Obamarama has said but i'm really stretching my bandwidth to get it done.

I have news. Bush was President until Jan of 2009.
We lost one out of every three manufacturing jobs under Bush.
We doubled the debt under Bush
Bush started with a balanced budget & his last budget was over a trillion in deficit.
As you brag about the gains right up until the house of cards collapsed, you ignore the false gains hidden in the housing bubble.
You act like the kid who climbs to the top fa tree yelling "look at me Look at me" right before he fell.
Any democrats vote for "Bush's" budgets? Huh, smart guy? You do know that NORMALLY the congress controls spending don't you?

I say NORMALLY because of the devious, underhanded, crooked "continuing resolutions" the dems have been using for 4 years.
Not one republican vote for any of Obimbola's trillion dollar plus deficits.

For the umpteenth time, little guy, who were the 2 smirking idiots lurking over Bush's shoulder at the TARP signing? Waiting to sign it themselves?

Do you need a hint? One is an avaricious , traitorous, old skeleton, the other can't smile without cracking her face.
