Barack Obama, our next President

The federal surveillance programs revealed in media reports are just "the tip of the iceberg," a House Democrat said Wednesday.

Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) said lawmakers learned "significantly more" about the spy programs at the National Security Agency (NSA) during a briefing on Tuesday with counterterrorism officials.

"What we learned in there," Sanchez said, "is significantly more than what is out in the media today."

Lawmakers are barred from revealing the classified information they receive in intelligence briefings, and Sanchez was careful not to specify what members might have learned about the NSA's work.

"I can't speak to what we learned in there, and I don't know if there are other leaks, if there's more information somewhere, if somebody else is going to step up, but I will tell you that I believe it's the tip of the iceberg," she said.

Sanchez's remarks on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" came a day after House lawmakers were briefed by national security officials on clandestine data collection programs.

The briefing was meant to convince lawmakers that the surveillance programs are legal and necessary in fighting counterterrorism — an argument President Obama and other administration officials have made.

Lawmakers demanded the briefings after revelations last week about the NSA's collection of phone records and Internet data, and Sanchez said lawmakers were "astounded" by what they heard.

"I think it's just broader than most people even realize, and I think that's, in one way, what astounded most of us, too," Sanchez said of the briefing.

WHEN OBAMA LEAVES OFFICE WILL HIS SUPPORTERS RETURN TO WE SHALL OVER COME NO JUSTICE NO PEACE but who cares no one will be listening this time around so go ahead its almost over and it aint been good for you funny before obama BLACKS HAD THEIR HANDS OUT TO EVERY OTHER PRESIDENT FUNNY this one they want nothing from

A high schooler who can't be removed from the classroom is much more difficult to deal with when teaching a classroom of high schoolers - which my sister had to deal with - than an effective discipline system in an elementary classroom - which is much easier to do.
So what would you do with a high schooler disrupting your classroom who thought they were beyond being disciplined and you had no support system whatsoever?
This should be interesting anyway.
The theory is that suspending a student for insubordination/bad behavior is a reward for bad behavior.

Alternately, Realtime would have the US prohibit all imports from Bangladesh, starving the people instead.

ABC News: Girl gang violence at Philadelphia school.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/video/girl-gang-viol...

And there's plenty more where that came from.

In a series of annual publications produced jointly by the National Center for Education Statistics, Institute of Education Sciences in the U.S. Department of Education, and the Bureau of Justice Statistics in the U.S. Department of Justice, data show that there were 33 school-associated violent deaths from July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010. In 2010, among students ages 12-18, there were about 828,000 nonfatal victimizations at school which include 470,000 victims of theft and 359,000 victims of violence (simple assault and serious violence). In 2009-10, about 74 percent of public schools recorded one or more violent incidents of crime, 16 percent recorded one or more serious violent incidents, and 44 percent recorded one or more thefts.

It's gotten worse since 2009-2010.

The median wealth of white households is 20 times that of black households. Researchers found that the exact same resume for the exact same job application will get twice as many call-backs for interviews if the name on the resume is “Greg” instead of “Jamal”. School districts spend more on predominantly white schools than predominantly black schools. The fact that black workers earn, on average, 35% less than white workers in the same jobs isn’t erased by the election of an African American president, one who, by the way, openly praises the role of affirmative action in his life and accomplishments.
As for Abigail Fisher, there is ample evidence that she just wasn’t qualified to get into the University of Texas. After all, her grades weren’t that great and the year she applied for UT, admissions there were actually more competitive than Harvard. In its court filings, the University has pointed out that even if Fisher received a point for race, she still wouldn’t have met the threshold for admissions. Yes, it is true that the same year, UT made exceptions and admitted some students with lower grades and test scores than Fisher. Five of those students were black or Latino. Forty-two were white.
AND THEY COME ON TOPIX PRETENDING LIKE THEY ARE EDUMACATED THEY DONT EVEN QUALIFY FOR Affirmative Action

I understad it's tough being a dumbass Tea Party member but Egypt has not declared war on theUnited States.
The black flag was also adopted by some groups fighting for Libyan rebels not associated with Al Qaeda.
You're an idiot.
President Mohammed Morsi gathered a group of politicians last week who thought they were speaking privately at a parliamentary meeting. They didn't realize they were speaking in the proximity of a hot mike. Magdi Ahmad Hussein, chairman of the Islamic Labor Party, suggested that all present vow not to leak any information to the media, then said this:
"I’m very fond of battles. With the enemies, of course – with America and Israel...."
The president of Egypt is in the room and part of the conversation, you idiot.

You reached way up your ass for this:
"The black flag was also adopted by some groups fighting for Libyan rebels not associated with Al Qaeda."
Bullshit. That black flag is the standard for the Wahhabist war against anything opposed to Wahhabism.
Al Qaeda is merely just one terrorist organization that is part of the Wahhabist network of terrorist organizations... now pay attention here... coordinated by the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood is at war with the United States.
The Muslim Brotherhood has a permenant presence in the White House.
The Muslim Brotherhood controls the government of Egypt.
The Muslim Brotherhood openly discusses their war with the United States when they think they aren't being heard.

So, please tell us why you joined the terrorists in their war against the United States, and are doing the same thing here Obama did when he lied for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States.
Why are you a terrorist?

Let me see-

IRS IG report states that the IRS were targeting groups for having 'Tea Party' or 'Patriot' in their names.

All news media reports the IRS was targeting conservative groups.

Your sister was just too dumb to handle a child.
Teachers and students just cuss each other out nowadays.

There once was a time when unruly students were sent to the office, taken care off in an expedient manner, and came back to the classroom a bit more humbled and ready to learn. Parents once used to support teachers and educators who cared enough to teach their child what was and was not acceptable behaviors so they would be socially functional in the real world.

But you prefer students and teachers cussing out each other, I know.

<quoted text>You're dismissing the point . Bush authorized data mining and collection of Americans phone records and internet traffic WITHOUT Congressional approval, oversight ,or any judicial review of the Intelligence-gathering process. Get it now? Or;are you going to argue now that Bush never did those illegal things?
You're dismissing the point. Let's go over this again, for the very, very stupid people in the class. You may need to write this down.

BUSH ISN'T THE PRESIDENT TODAY. BUSH HASN'T BEEN THE PRESIDENT FOR MORE THAN FOUR GODDAM YEARS. OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT TODAY. OBAMA HAS BEEN PRESIDENT FOR MORE THAN FOUR GODDAM YEARS.

So, why is it you're talking about Bush?
RISM didn't exist when Bush was president. And, the Patriot Act which all you Democrats pretended to hate until you could use it, would not allow the unconstitutional spying this excuse for an administration is doing.

So, since it's very obvious this administration is preparing for a large-scale war with the American population, and ignoring the muslim terrorists here while importing nobody knows how many more from Saudi Arabia, and excluding muslims (thus muslimi terrorists) from being spied upon, and is spying wholesale on the non-muslim population....
Tell us who will be the enemy in the war Obama and the administration is preparing for in the United States.

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.

The theory used to be behavioral problems became the parents' problem if they didn't want their child to have a warm fanny.

If parents had to leave work and take care of their own undisciplined children or figure out what to do with their child after they were suspended for a few days, there'd be a heckuva decrease in disciplinary problems in the public schools.

I guarantee it.

Sending kids to "detention" to get out of the classroom IS a reward.
