That is NOT NTR, liar.
Why do you right-wing nuts lie so much?
Correct, M'dear- NTR wouldn't use "non" as a word- she is much smarter than that and there isn't as much subtle intelligence in that post, besides. I'm also happy to note that you know the difference between a "right-winger" and a "right-wing nut". I have faith in you.

When I was on the illegal immigration forum, these libs had every excuse they could conger up to support illegals. They actually believe Americans owe the illegal immigrants a living. I see it in our local government too.
We had a local immigration forum about the many things which were happening in our city such as illegal immigrants taking over one subdivision and drugs, prostitution, theft, etc. was happening.
Local citizens started telling what was going on, that our local gov. was giving special treatment to any illegal, the Catholic church who set up Centro Latino to cater to the illegal immigrants which were dropped off every week at our only Walmarts parking lot.
The bus had Americano Hotel on the side of it and the license was from Texas....I am sure you get the picture.
Anyway, the latino community became very upset with the forum and they shut it down. It was under the Sentinel News.
....they shut it down because it was offensive in reporting the truth.
Our local gov. is liberal.
Although, I don't trust either party.
No party should be trusted. And as far as I am concerned and neither should any form of BIG govt.

I insult the president......
I wish this was all that King Obama and Queen Jezebel along with the rest of their corrupted administration were doing to the American patriots.
Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim terrorist.
NTR is a Muslim terrorist supporter.
I have something to offer to help with America's problems.
Take the traitors of both parties to the gallows.
Shut down IRS and initiate a flat tax for everyone including the welfare and unemployment recipients....no tax exemptions except mrtg. and healthcare cost....no "earned income credits" especially for welfare moms.
Have all illegal immigrants in America pay $5000. per person, they must have a job, no welfare or free healthcare. If they go to a hospital and don't pay for it---deport their butts back to where they came from. Deport all illegal immigrant prisoner back to where they came from.
Just think even if you had 50 million welfare recipients pay $2 per family member per month, this would be $100 million per month for one year---just two little dollars.
All the politicians, what is left of them will pay their share with no expense for their partying.
Have each politician on a report card, to be examined every 6 mos. and if they fail, kick their butts out without a cent.
I have lots of ideas.
I am all for equal rights...not the liberal's special rights.
NTR, know how you lost credibility?
1. Too blind and dumb to see what this administration is all about.
2. Tells their intimate life stories for the world to see and then denigrate anyone who comments on it.
This is not intelligence....its the dumbest thing anyone could do.
In all, Reality, that was a good post and you have my attention at least.

If the kids can learn any video game, texting, cell phone use, etc....they can learn to read, write, history and math.
The news in New York city stated 80% of their students are graduating and do not know how to read or write....how did they get a passing grade in order to graduate?
Dumb down the people and then you will have control over them.
There are too much media devices bringing too much drama into the lives of vulnerable minds and it is driven by the liberal entertainment industries with an agenda of the eventual dumbing down by drama to the point of political as well as national obliviousness to the real problems that face AMERICA and what is stands for.
Plain, simple and to the point.
Then our nations opposers will have the people of America in their hands and doing what they want them to do just like a dog on a leash.
America needs to stay in the woods, wild and untamed by anybody, in order to survive as a Nation.

Crazy is what you are.. What do you think if the students are learning the test questions they are in fact learning.. You want to add test questions fine.. You know what would be a big help in schools?? Get rid of all cell phones and calculators and other devices in the class room.. Tell me how do you propose to make a kid learn or do their homework?? I mean you all took paddles out of the schools so what is your answer??
So obamacare is now covering what 5 to 10 million people but lost 30 million+ to boot.. Yea instead of full time work employees has to work 2 or three jobs.. Yea I know everyone needs to try for medicaid and see how it works.. Explain to me how the poor is not still flooding the hospitals even with medicaid.. And just inform me how many doctors accept it as well.. I'm all ears..
Eagle
to the best of my knowledge, cell phones ARE banned in the class rooms... for SURE in MY school system.

do you think the kids have them or not?

if you WANT a parent-kid/teacher-school fiasco, TRY and take them away!

one of my classes is AUTO BODY REPAIR.... the teacher was told LAST year if one of his students couldn't do te MATH to figure an estimate, TEACH HIM.

these are ELECTIVE classes and 10th-12th grade kids. they don't HAVE to be there, so, the standards should be HIGHER.

they have BEEN passed K-9th grades and SOME CAN'T do the MATH required to figure the COST OF HOURS TIMES RATE????

I'd say that's a little late to RE-teach them WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE NEVER GOT OUT OF ELEMENTARY school withour knowing.

posters like sista have NO idea what goes on in the AVERAGE Middle American schools.

think of the WORST 'Black Board Jungle'(1950's movie!) scenes ad transpose them to today's average (sch corps for cities of 30-50K pop) and you would have a START.

now, every county sch corp here has the SAME problems, only on a smaller (but GROWING) scale.... many kids are trasfers FROM the bog corp.... in an attempt to GET AN EDUCATION.

trouble is, the 'entitlement' folks' kids have go there before them!

'big, bad, ghetto' sch problems are present in EVERY sch system in every State and every county and every city/town/village... EXCEPT PRIVATE SCHOOLS.

here's how the virus is spread: as little as 5-10 years ago, conserned parents/care-givers in MY sch corp started LYING about where the kids lived to register them in county schools.

the county schools KNEW but relished the EXTRA HEAD COUNT, for additional funds, OF COURSE.

about 3-5 years ago, the QUALITY of these transfers started affecting the county schools' STANDARDIZED MANDATED PERFORMANCE test scoes, so they statrted setting ACADEMIC and BEHAVIOUR standards.

LAST YEAR (or the year before?), the State made it LEGAL for any, ANY student in Indiana to go to ANY SCHOOL, NO STANDARDS NEED APPLY, no residency requirements.

seems the 'problem' kids were being turned away and the OUTCOME needed to be MANAGED in the name of FAIRNESS.

what about the kids/parents/TAX PAYERS that ORIGINALLY picked THEIR locations precisely (maybe PRIMARILY?) because of the QUALITY of the Local schools?

FAIRNESS equals F&%k'em, don't it?

yeah, but F&%K WHO????

Dumb down the people and then you will have control over them.
to my knowledge, Indiana has NEVER oulawed corporal punishment (paddling)... the schools just don't do IT any more because of the community (Progressive) mores and the legal/personal hassles.

kids, AND their parents/care-givers, can 'show out' all they want. but, let a teacher, etc. get 'physical'????

extreme self-defense is STILL permissable... SO FAR.

as a janitor (non-certified staff), just 2/3 months ago I had to SIGN a 'hands-off' pledge. personally, I don't even TALK to these kids unless I have to! I do NOT need some girl or boy bringing up MY name for anything, get me?lol

we have had ON DUTY local cops assigned to our HS and my school for YEARS! the HS now has THREE (3)! total student count at HS? maybe 1200.... probably less now.

in one class there is posted on the wall a quote from A. Lincoln about WHAT the kids are taught, so goes the diection of the Nation.

our direction has been going DOWN for decades....

so goes our schools''societies, so goes Society as a whole.

is it ANY wonder that the Progressives went from politics, AFTER FDR, into EDUCATION?:)

our fellow citizens had better WAKE UP.... SOON.

So again with slams against women here being women. What, in your opinion, is the great sin of being a grandmother?

Women should not fear aging, it's better than dying, or being a conservative. LOL

Even those who have low or non skill levels should be taught the basics such as reading, writing, math, science and civics enough to pass standardized high school diploma testing. Even the teabaggers have that capability, although I'd say their limited minds and what they can obtain can be described more as rote learning rather than actually an understanding of the world around them. Through repetition they acquire information as has been evidenced through their brainwashing by certain malevolent billionaires (think Koch brothers) through teabagger websites and literature. If they can be taught to oppose their own best interests, then surely they can be trained to pass a few basic high school tests. After that, then they can do menial work, such as Higgins. They too, can make a contribution to our society, however small it may be.
lady(?), you have issues and opinions beyond Topix.

you are another 'lost' citizen...

you should really enjoy the next few coming years.

have a nice life in your Progressive Utopian fantasy world, okay?

I'll finish with this thought: the average TPer, being over the age of 50, has FORGOT more 'knowledge' than the average college grad ever learned today.

the FACT that the basis for the entire Movement is FISCAL responsiblitiy and LIMITED FG proves my statement.

You draw being a woman like a gun. No offence. But you seem to use your gender as some sort of weapon.

That may be true, but, when the grandmother in question is thirty years old, it kinda hoses down the whole theory.

So, what you have told me in the above post is that you are uneducated, older, and a teabagger, and you want to blame the federal government for the failures in your life. Sounds to me that you are the one who failed yourself, it was not the government. This nation provided you, especially if you are over 50, with every opportunity to succeed, yet you didn't take advantage of it and now want to blame something outside of yourself.

You seriously didn't want to offend or are you feigning "friendly" while trying to figure me out? If my gender is a weapon, it's a mighty powerful one and I wouldn't stand in my sights, if I were you. Don't you feel the power? I had the impression from and earlier post of yours, that you enjoy being a woman, as much as I do. I could be wrong.

Illegal border crossings rise in South Texas as Congress debates immigration reform

In Texas, just the debate itself is drawing new immigrants over the border.

Juan Mercado lives on border property his family has owned since the 1850s. Immigrants often sneak across there. But since January, the number has tripled.

"I'm being invaded by people who have no permission to be on my property," Mercado said. "By smugglers, by illegals."

This surveillance video recorded last month near McAllen, Texas, shows some 40 men, women and children crossing into the United States.

Border patrol agents in the Rio Grande sector tell CBS News apprehensions have risen from 2,800 in January to 7,500 in March.
