The Christian Bible that most Americans read, never specifically references child molestation.
It seems to give a pass on incest and rape, so I think Josh is all good with White Jesus.
Math on the other hand, he took to and excelled at from a very young age, with absolutely no prodding from me at all. Go figure.
This could be an early sign of challenges ahead.
Generally speaking I agree there's a developmental point where it's appropriate to focus on a certain topic.
My son is in 1st grade, we focus on READING. Around age 7 seems about right to me. I did work on reading some with him at about 5-6 and it was quite slow and frustrating, and I took a break.
I started the school year every night where I would read him a short story, of which he would try to read maybe a page. We started at about Go Dog Go! level. In this school year he has gone from reading Dr. Seuss with difficulty to reading Encyclopedia Brown on his own, although he does have to stop and ask for help with odd words. English is full of really terrible spellings and inconsistencies that Ben Franklin should have tried harder to put an end to IMO. It's really quite startling how fast he has picked it up, I feel a bit sad that my days of reading him stories at bedtime are pretty much over.
There is no point in spending hours on memorization and repetition when they aren't mature enough, that the next year they would grasp immediately. Unless you have some sort of prodigy of course.
Is that Cantor....or CARTMAN?
Never ceases to amaze me that people freak out over police actions. You get what you pay for.
Want intelligent policing? Bump up salaries and educational requirements.
Lik getting better schools by raising teacher salaries?
Is this SoftShell or a pod person?
Yeah and I call someone to cut my tree that died from ash bore and I have to pay a 1000 bucks. This is a giant 40 yr old tree and folks I talk to say I got it cheap! I mean wouldn't they be able to sell the wood and make a ton of cash-why do I have to pay for it????? Put the 300 pound welfare freaks to work.
Climbing, special equipment, insurance, yada yada yada. That's what it costs. Takes some work and expertise to bring a big tree down safely. Mostly fed into wood-chipper isn't worth it to send it to a mill. You want to knock it down yourself go ahead.
My Dad decided to bring down a large branch off a tree in his yard. When he got hit by the branch, and knocked down off the ladder by it, and was wheezing through broken ribs (and other bones) I think it finally became obvious his sense of economy MAY have been misplaced. Fortunately my Mom who had advancing Alzheimers was still functional enough to get the neighbors to bring help, and they called 911. Permanent damage to his shoulder and right arm, he'll never be as good of a golfer although physical therapy has restored 90% mobility.
Oh come now, they are quite different.
The Gestapo had snappy uniforms.
Disgruntled college grad venting out their life frustrations in a fast food restaurant, totally novel.
OH yeah, it's about the salmon. NOT the pot. Uh huh.
So, who killed Laura Palmer?
She was poisoned. With lots of unhealthy foods that ballooned her weight.
Then she developed numerous health problems and eventually died of fatty liver disease.
Do bike club members typically vote Republican or Democrat?
This is a tragedy, not murder.
I don't follow you. Tragedy? KID STOOD HIS GROUND!
Don't want a bullet in the brainpan? Don't go wandering around in nice neighborhoods with your hoodie, or tossing pebbles at a window, or stumble onto a porch and start banging on the door. Too many ways to list, that you can acquire new ventilation.
These are just hijinks. No need to call the National Guard out or anything!
Fun fact. You can have remains of a loved one made into a diamond!
Now THAT would be a family heirloom for sure!
Mrs. Vicente always chooses travel vs. shiny rock.
Hope future robotkind is more like them.
Markie Post .......
The War Party sometimes says what it's thinking. Letting the truth slip out, is not a "messaging problem".
I expect at least 3 new fronts being opened by next GOP President, if they work hard maybe an American Uncivil War.
Yet for three months Republicans have supported sex traffickers
Except for that he didn't say anything in that quote the libertarians haven't said before. No bailouts - let em fail, it's healthy for the economy.
No, this is quite different. He did not say "it's healthy for the economy."
It's about dismantling the diabolical Glibertopian edifice so it doesn't do it to us again every decade or two.
What we have right now is UNHEALTHY for the economy, and unstable. As soon as the memory of the last
recession is purged from the system, the next Captains of Finance and Masters of the Universe will take
crazy risks and endanger us all again.
For every hijacker there were dozens of able-bodied men on those flights
The facts of 9/11 clearly demonstrate how a group can be cowed by box cutters and prior conditioning. 3 planes were crashed without apparent revolt. The 4th plane the hijackers waited longer to begin. United Flight 93 the passengers herded to the back, had some while to use personal cellphones to get the news of the hopelessness of their situation before they started organizing a revolt. Had they not multiple communication resources, and 20+ minutes to ponder it was "do or die" I'm certain that they would have submitted like the previous passengers did.
Enterprise has a weekend special -- a Corolla costs ~$200 for four days, including the gas and CDW.
If we had a train network that the BULGARIANS WOULDN'T BE ASHAMED OF, it wouldn't even be a contest.
In a lot of countries, the road networks suck because that's not the hole they decided to throw money down. Frankly, if I'm in Italy I don't WANT to drive, if there's a train I'll go there, if not it had better be an important destination before I'll get in a car for it. Flying to London in Virgin Upper Class in a few weeks with the family, looking forward to trying the Chunnel over to France.
Only 201K? Pffft. Amateur!
The Obama groupies of my acquaintance, who have blamed his ineffectuality on the Republicans, are in complete denial about what the TPP represents.
Just won't look at it or talk about it.
Many Democrats, are really Republican Lite in their economics. They aren't "in denial" as you put it, they have a belief that runs to their core that "free trade" like "free markets" has the word FREE and that's always good. Buy 2 packets of tube socks, get a 3rd one FREE who could be against FREE?
They believe in "free trade" without examining it's core malfunctions and misapplications, and no amount of argument will dissuade them. This is not new, it was present during the Clinton years. THE example is this Sir James Goldsmith interview from 1994:
9/11 could have been prevented simply by locking the cockpit door and not negotiating with hijackers.
A common thought. In this America, that makes them heroes.
However let's envision an Alternate America, one where the pilots kept the doors locked. Logically the hijackers would have started cutting throats, starting with the most vulnerable people, and having the flight attendants report that over the intercom to the pilots. They'd ignore the screams as women and children were executed, and land the plane at some alternate airport. In Alternate America they'd have been villified as heartless cowards. Because Alternate America wouldn't really BELIEVE that the Twin Towers would have been toppled and thousands killed, and all they'd focus on is all the dead passengers while pilots "worried about only their own safety and an expensive airliner."
The history of commercial airliners, has been filled with hijackers intent on something other than suicide by maximum speed crash into population. So the mindset of pre-9/11 conditioned passengers was ingrained to hold off, wait, and the hijackers would eventually get "what's coming to them" by trained professionals. A Dirty Harry "Magnum Force" maneuver, or maybe a stealth plane inserting commandoes like "Executive Decision". The idea of average passengers leading a revolt and going up against multiple crazed hijackers would have been regarded as insane and probably only making things worse.
