Enough about me. Let's talk about you for a change.

Caring enough about children to teach them socially acceptable behaviors as well as academia.

You know, when children used to grow up and become responsible adults? It was before your time apparently.

Putin is a real president who has to go on stage with an obvious fraud putting on a clown act holding up a sign that says "We're sorry" in one hand and holding out a tin cup in the other hand.
I'm thinking he's not too excited about that.
He sees the news too. The majority of Americans feel the same way he looks.

Wrong liar, all groups both conservative and liberal were subject to the same scrutiny and only progressive groups were denied tax exempt status.
You're an idiot DB!
Oh. So the IRS holding up the approval for conservative groups and rushing through approval for Obama groups was, how did you put it, "subject to the same scrutiny and only progressive groups were denied tax exempt status."
I'm betting you got that information from Rachel Maddow or Chris Matthews... really credible sources you have....

I'm curious. Where the hell did you get the description you posted here?

The easiest way for any government agency to deny an application is through endless delay, not immediate rejection. Once denied, then the applicant can take the government to court.

Since Obama is running our death care the doctors will all be retiring leaving only assistants so Obama will just rename them "Doctor".

The NSA programs of acquiring broad amounts of telephone and Internet data have drawn support from both Republicans and Democrats, including the leading members of both parties on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein and Saxby Chambliss. While some in the GOP, such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are standing by their principles, others such as Sen. Chambliss (R-Ga.) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appear to trust Obama only when it suits their agenda.
In a statement, Chambliss says that these "lawful intelligence activities must continue, with the careful oversight of the executive …" This is surprising coming from the same man who believes that President Obama was misleading the American people: "What Susan Rice said was exactly what President Obama told her to say … They were about ready to throw her under the bus." He later added, "I do think that there were some politics involved in the message that the White House wanted to send."
Sen. Graham has even gone as far as to attack Rand Paul for criticizing the White House: "I see the threat to the average American, radical Islam coming to our backyard trying to destroy our way of life. He sees the threat (from) the government that's trying to stop the attack. I'm more threatened by the radical Islamists than I am the government agencies who are trying to protect us."
So is Paul or Chambliss right? Let's look at the rough numbers:

US civilian deaths by al Qaeda:~3000

US military deaths by Bush/Obama:~7000

Hmmm, one of those entities is more than twice as dangerous to Americans as the other.

Wrong you vomitous cretin! Wal-Mart keeps their prices low because they buy their goods from countries that pay slave wages and subject their workers to unsafe working conditions and pay their own workers such crap wages that most of them are eligible for food stamps.
Costco also sells goods for low prices and their workers are unionized. This country's economy was at its best when union was more of the norm than the exception before Ronald Reagan cut the legs out from under them and the middle class.
You're an idiot!
after I get my shopping done at wal-mart tonight,I think I'll stop by chic fil a for a meal.

No really, that’s a serious question. For throughout the whole OKC bombing saga the mainstream media has ignored some serious inconsistencies.

Speaking at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin, Ireland, at a performance by of "Riverdance" by Irish youth, First Lady Michelle Obama thanked the crowd and said, "It is good to be home."

We could only wish the O'bama's were home in Ireland. They don't deserve to call America their home--and evidentally Moochie O'bama calls Ireland her home. Nut case. Of course she's never been proud of her country.

Charter schools do.
They throw bad kids into the street and initiate their downward spiral into crime and drugs. Helps them pretend they are doing better than union schools.
Charter schools are the biggest scam on earth. Public money paid to private sector over lords.
You get angry when trash is filtered out. Make me happy as Hell, Dood. Ambitious, disciplined youth do much better when unhindered by urban trash in the classroom environment.

Did YOU get filtered out, Dood?(snicker, snicker)

Stay in the street. They'll pick you up for prison soon. Free room & Board coming right your way!

But Carol, didn't you just blame the administrators for problems in the schools? Last time I looked they weren't union. In the system that my wife works at the city government is Republican and they've allowed the school superintendent to rack up expenses by hiring more administrators and cutting back on teachers.
The poster formerly known as Carol, so the story goes, taught in a red county within a red state and had a wide latitude regarding how her own beliefs might have affected/infected the grade school youngsters that she taught.

That poster has proven to be a liar about every subject of interest here and IMO is likely lying about family and career as well.

BTW, I'm hoping your retirement is as interesting as your early morning posts have been over the past four years. Good on you and good on sonic for your dedication.
