Dick,
I am grateful that you have zero influence over what actually happens with the education system in California. Your ideas are ridiculous. You are a typical righty, all you want to do is cut costs and still get your services. When will you righties ever learn that there is no free lunch. California's budget problems can't be solved by more programs and services being canceled. The California schools are already cut to the bone. There's nowhere left to cut costs. You repubs all want to get a free lunch on the government's dime. You've had enough. Get ready to cough it up.

I could not agree more! Lets not forget the cost of educating people in "multiple" languges,the cost of educating "illegals",and the cost of tenured teachers who may not be proficient in the subjects they are teaching,while at the same time are protected by the CTA. All of these are unessassary burdens to our public education system. What we need is the voucher system,after all it is "our" money,it works in business and it will work in the classroom,people will not pay for what doesnt work given the option.

This guy obviously doesn't have a clue. This states spending per child according to the RAND Corp.(not known for its liberal outlook), in cost-of-liviing weighted dollars, is around 45th in the nation. The number of administrators per teacher ranks amoung the lowest of the 50 states. It is always easy to advocate for cutting jobs-someone else's job. Textbooks are recommended to the Board of Education for adoption by committees, mostly made up of teachers, which doesn't mean the texts aren't lousy. The selection available to the committees is often determined by the legislature meddling in education issues they have no understanding of, sometimes federal grant requirements, and the textbook companies. Textbook companies are relentlessly focused on making more money, not in providing quality textbooks. Federal grants, under Bush's No Child Left Behind, have been so corrupt they were described by Congressman George Miller to be a "criminal conspiracy."Of course, Bush/corruption, I do repeat myself.

I have three kids who are either currently in Paradise schools or who have already completed school. It is no wonder why so many parents are turning to home schooling. It's a little more effort on the parents' part, but well worth the time.

Now the state wants to put restrictions on home schooling based mostly on the fact the most parents don't have teaching credentials. But it all boils down to the mighty buck. Everytime a child leaves a public school for a private school they lose funding.

Why does the Paradise school district have 4 Superintendents and 5 directors? and why are they laying off so many of the lower paying job and giving raises to the Superintendents?

Dick, You ought to know by now that the government knows better how to spend your money than you do.

You did a good job assessing the bureaucratic ineptitudes on the state level. Now you can do another article on the failure of "No Child Left Behind" another passel of idiots that think they know what's best for schools because they went to one forty years ago. The real problems with education are in the family. Without the support of families, schools cannot get a job done.
A classroom of 35 students is strapped by the five students who have absolutely no desire to succeed in school, many of whom only go to class to disrupt. When contacted, parents throw up their hands as if there's nothing they can do. When this state took discipline out of the hands of the school, they took the first steps toward school's demise. There are about 5 percent of parents who despise schools, and refuse to corral their spawn and that percent is ruining the entire system.

Dick,

While I agree with you that the current sad state of affairs with regard to our schools is not TOP NOTCH, neither is the putrid "No child left behind" is doing anything to improve our schools.

That sad, the little putz, who currently occupies the White House, has stated that "No Child Left Behind" is the cornerstone of education.

What a flowering crock of putrid sputum!

He is an idiot and I know you agree with me when the camera is off.

When can people of proffesional degrees pull up the guts to call this wicked man for what he is?

Lacking that talent, I would ask all who dream to enter government to take a good long look into the mirror.

George Bush is evil, Anybody who supports him is evil and Un-American.

God Bless

Nude swimming in schools would save money, as families would not have to purchase bathing costumes.
And rather than paying teachers overtime to supervise detention rooms, schools could permit teachers to give misbehaving students an on-the-spot bare-bottom spanking in front of the class.

Anybody with a brain cell knows this was posted by that immature pathetic apology for a man, Bob in Canada (they are welcome to him).
He thinks he is funny.
Everybody else thinks he is sad.
And a loser.

Hear! Hear!... But he's more than pathetic, Phil: Bob is a pedophile. He molested my son. And, obsessed with my outing of him and the justice for him that my son and I currently pursue, he's an inveterate, pathalogical liar given to change his name to post whatever sick provocative BS he wishes. But he's stupid. He just doesn't know that he is... In other words, he's too stupid to realize that he's not intelligent. So he gives himself away constantly. And he's been at this for many, many years. And posting on these threads dedicated to stories and visions and issues involving nude pubescent boys for at least five years. I join you in your contempt of him, and I invite everyone else to repudiate this very sick and dangerous pedophile.

Well, they're closing in on me. I've sold my house, hired a lawyer, written my will, packed my bags, and cancelled my subscription to Nude Boys Weekly.
I sit here, just waiting for the police, both local and federal, to show up to arrest me. And no doubt MaltaMon and his son* will be tipped off by the cops to come and watch my arrest.

*MaltaMon's "son", of course, will be just some kid that he picked up at a local pin-ball arcade for sex, and is paying him extra to pretend to be his son.

Hey MaltaMon: you wish to repudiate me, why don't you call up Sarah Palin, and she can help you "refudiate" me as well!

Hahahahaha!

You're a NAMBLA member, Bob. A boy lover. You belong in gaol. The thing is, I'm not satisfied with your being prosecuted just for having raped my son. I'm gathering together other victims of yours. That hasn't been easy, of course, since they didn't know my son. The objective is to put you away for life. Conviction for the rape of one boy years ago won't guarantee that. So keep on
"waitin'", Pedo Bob. We're more than half way there.

And if you were not guilty as charged, you wouldn't be obsessed with me. During my three months in Asia, you even created an entire new thread devoted to me, and accused me of actually being Monsignor Linn of Philadelphia, who has been convicted and sentenced, is incarcerated and is clearly unable to access these threads. I wonder why an innocent man would behave like that.

Pedo Bob, my posts here, which really seem to upset you, have led over the yesrs to the identification of two of your victims. We've been in touch ever since. Moreover, the more I post, the less likely you are to troll for more innocent boys to outsmart into sex. But you always neglect the reality that children grow up and don't forget. That you can outsmart innocent kids into letting your rape them makes you think that you somehow are more intelligent than adults who are on to you. Won't work, Bob. You're going to gaol.

ONCE AGAIN, PEDO BOB POSES AS ME SO THAT HE CAN CREATE AND POST ANOTHER OF HIS PEDOPHILE/CFNM FANTASIES. ONCE AGAIN, BECAUSE OF THE STUPIDITY THAT IS AMONG HIS MOST MANIFEST QUALITIES, HE NEGLECTS TO CHANGE THE LOCATION OF ORIGIN OF THIS POST FROM HIS TO MINE. ONCE AGAIN, HE COMBATS MY CALLING HIM OUT AS A PEDOPHILE WHO MOLESTED MY SON BY PROVING THAT HIS SEXUAL OBSESSION WITH YOUNG BOYS IS INTRACTABLE:

Spanking should be brought back into schools: especially bare bottom spanking for boys, and mandatory nude swimming for boys. Both spanking and swimming should be overseen by a female instructor.

At some point, a reader commented about boys being teased in the locker room for being uncircumcised. Naturally, their post was dismissed by that cretin, cfnmturd as being fake.
But there were boys in my high school class who were uncircumcised and were teased about it.(I was in high school in the early 70s, most of the boys were circumcised)

Which brings me to my point. tnmtndude is such a hillbilly, it reminded me of a joke:

How do you circumcise tnmtndude?

Kick his sister in the jaw.

Hahahaha!!!

My Friends: HERE IS PEDOPHILE BOB OF DORVAL, DISGUISING HIMSELF AS 'PHILLIPE' OF MONTREAL (WHICH IS JUST UP THE ROAD FROM DORVAL, FOR THOSE WHO AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH THE GEOGRAPHY.. MONTREAL'S TRUDEAU AIRPORT IS LOCATED IN DORVAL). HE POSTED THIS AS THE FIRST ENTRY ON THE NEW THREAD HE'S CREATED, "MaltaMon Outed Again!", WHICH SHOULD REMIND YOU ALL OF HIS "MaltaMon Outed!" FROM EARLIER THIS SUMMER. NOW, IN ITS ENTIRETY, IS PEDOPHILE BOB'S LATEST FANTASY, FOLLOWED BY MY RESPONSE ON THE THREAD:

"Phillipe" (Pedo Bob) wrote:
I am a student at UQAM in Montreal. Tuition is expensive, and most of us find ways to augment our tuition fees. Some of the girls do stripping or dancing, and some of the guys turn tricks. If you are really lucky like me, you can find a sugar daddy who will give you lots of money in return for sex.
I met my sugar on line. He lives in Pennsylvania, and visits Montreal whenever he can. Usually he stays in a cheap motel in Dorval, near the airport. He is a Monsignor, originally from Malta, and is about 60 years old or so, and lives in a retirement home.
I am only 22, but look younger, and MaltaMon, as he likes to be called, likes me to dress in clothing that makes me look like a boy.
He likes swimming a lot, and we go swimming at the pool in CEGEP de Vieux Montreal. In summer, he takes me up to the Laurentians, where we can go nude swimming in a lake.
Some of the activities he likes to indulge in:
Gym Class: I dress up in shorts and a t-shirt, with bare feet, and do exercises till I am hot and sweaty, then he watches me shower in his bathroom. He likes to put on a dress and masturbates while watching me.
Communion: he puts on his church robes, and I dress up as an altar boy. I have to kneel in front of him, and he gives me a sip of wine, a host, and then opens his robe so I can perform oral sex on him.
Confession: he puts on a black priest outfit, I dress up in a striped t-shirt, board shorts and skate shoes, and have to kneel next to him and tell him I have done something bad. My penance is to pull down my pants and underwear, and lie over his lap so he can give me a bare-bottom spanking.
I once asked him why he did not find a real boy to have sex with, and he said he once did rape a 14-year old boy, but was expelled from the church. He said it is safer for him to pretend with me. Anyway, he says he is not a pedophile, only other people are, and is always calling other people pedophiles. I think it is just because he is feeling guilt over his own actions.
He is pathetic, but pays me a lot more money than any of my friends get from their jobs at McDonalds, so for now I will keep doing it. But the day he stops paying is the day I stop doing him, because he gives me the creeps.
Well, well, if it isn't Pedophile Bob once again in disguise. You've changed your location from Dorval to up-island Montreal--did you find a place with WiFi downtown, perhaps?--but everyone knows that it's you because you created a thread with the same title, appended with "AGAIN", that you created earlier this summer. And once again, you come after me with more of your sick, perverted sexual fantasies.(I'll bet you masturbated just after you posted this) I can't believe that you keep giving yourself away with this demented stuff. It won't work, Pedo Bob: It doesn't serve to indict anyone but yourself. And you will never stop my crusade. OUR crusade. Because "MaltaMon" is more than just one guy. And, for what it's worth, we're not in Pennsylvania. We're going to see to it that you're locked up and away from children... all of whom are at tremendous risk as long as you cruise the streets. And when you're in prison, like all child rapists you'll be regarded by your fellow prisoners as the lowest of the low, and you will get as good as you've given young boys for the rest of your sad pathetic life.

My friends, will Pedo Bob keep trying? Will he go on creating more of these sick sexual fantasies to post on these threads?

Tune in tomorrow.
