Rest easy, Virginia! Some idiot judge or magistrate [I don’t practice criminal law but I know an idiot when I see one] is keeping us safe from those mean old teachers!
UPDATE: Teacher acquitted! Prosecutor admits that not really much to be seen on the video, and other students came forward to support the teacher’s version (that he never improperly conducted himself).
This reminds me of something my adult son told me lately. He complained about a time when he got in trouble at school. Two other boys were pushing and shoving each other, and he was minding his own business and got in trouble for it along with them. He said the other two complained to their parents, who complained to the school, and their punishments were rescinded.
But when my son asked me to intervene, I told him if he wasn’t technically guilty in this particular time, he was guilty in other instances and just never got caught. I supposedly told him to take his [minor] punishment like a man. I don’t actually recall this interaction, it was 6-9 years ago and not that big of a deal to me.
My wife chimed in and said yeah, and how did those other two boys turn out? [She already knew.] My son admitted that one was in jail and the other is a known drug abuser who has been in and out of jail. Sure, this is anecdotal evidence, but I think parents do a great disservice to their kids and the schools by intervening absent the most egregious circumstances when their children are disciplined at school. I always supported the school over my kids. If my kids got in trouble at school, they risked getting in more trouble with me when they got home. It worked in two out of two cases.
After less than two days of deliberation, a Chesapeake jury found Ryan Frederick guilty of voluntary manslaugher in the January 2008 shooting death of Chesapeake Detective Jarrod Shivers during a drug raid on Frederick’s home. He could face 10 years in prison.
You know the Pubs can’t compete againt liberal Democrats! The sky is falling in! The country hates Pubs! Become a Moderate RINO whining sniveling little Democrap enabler! Be afraid! The SKY IS FALLING IN! Become as much like the Democrats as possible or we will all perish!
No, wait. Republican Chris Christie is up 6% in a poll, 42-36%, over incumbent Democratic Governor Jon Corzine. In one of the most freakin liberal states in America! Corzine has an unfavorable rating of 50%! Americans don’t like Dems or liberals, they just wanted change from the Dem-Wannabes in the Republican party who ran this country into the ground, with the help and “leadership” of GWB. Take heart, my Brethren.
Ex VP Cheney via Politico: “When we get people who are more concerned about reading the rights to an Al Qaeda terrorist than they are with protecting the United States against people who are absolutely committed to do anything they can to kill Americans, then I worry,” Cheney said.
“Protecting the country’s security is “a tough, mean, dirty, nasty business,” he said. “These are evil people. And we’re not going to win this fight by turning the other cheek.”
NOW he tells us, when nobody is listening to him any more. Continue reading
Just two of many examples from Fark dot calm. Truly a must see!
The Obama Administration encouraged a “Blue Dog” Democrat to vote against Pelosi’s “Porkulus Plan.” But Obama was too stupid to realize the guy would spill the beans and let Queen Bitch Pelosi find out about it. Why is this huge news? Pelosi fighting against Obama is perhaps the greatest thing that could happen to this country. The Republicans are too spineless and lacking in numbers to provide effective opposition to either Pelosi or Obama. Pelosi will take this for it is: a direct affront to her authority, and the claws will come out. And Obama will employ “the Chicago Way” when she retaliates. Things are gonna get ugly. And that is a beautiful thing for America!
Politico reports that Jim Cooper (D), Tennessee said this:
“Well, I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but I actually got some quiet encouragement from the Obama folks for what I’m doing,” said Cooper, one of about 55 House Democrats to sign a letter criticizing Speaker Nancy Pelosi for suspending normal debate and committee rules on the $819 billion package.
“They know its a messy bill and they wanted a clean bill. Now, I got in terrible trouble with our leadership because they don’t care what’s in the bill, they just want it pass and they want it to be unanimous. They don’t mind the partisan fighting cause that’s what they are used to. In fact, they’re really good at it. And they’re a little bit worried about what a post-partisan future might look like. If members actually had to read the bills and figure out whether they are any good or not. We’re just told how to vote. We’re treated like mushrooms [kept in the dark and fed horseshit] most of the time.”
Oh HAPPY DAY!
