Yes, Virginia, It's the Political Season!

 
Oh my Oh my...the wicked web gets weaved every election season.  Let me count the ways:

1) Teachers claim they have no books in the classroom because Thom Tillis wants me to buy a yacht! It's an out and out lie.  If that woman in Hagan's ads were my kids' teacher?  She wouldn't be for long.  Because you know if she'll get on national tv and say it, there's no telling what she is saying in the classroom.  Don't you think the parents would have been yelling by  now if this was true?  I'll take that yacht now, please.

2) Would someone please tell Kay Hagan she isn't running for NC Senate?  Why is that woman suddenly concerned about NC?  Her vote gave us Obamacare.  Obamacare has crippled our economy a heck of a lot more in it's short lifespan  than 4 years of Thom Tillis being NC House Speaker.  Good grief..with his leadership we have become #17 in the nation for business instead of #44 as we were under the Dems!

3) Sometimes the truth comes out...Your NC Senator did this.  Hmm cocktail and fundraisers or terrorists?  Hard choice for Kay...

4) Oh No!  NOT AGAIN...Sign Ninjas strike again in Lee Co.  This time I heard it was someone on the right.  The moral of this story is leave the freaking signs alone.  I don't care which party it is.  And it wouldn't be right to not scold the right just like we do the left.  It hurts but geez ....boys and girls, come on! 
 
On my road alone are several that look as if they were just tossed around.  Some looked stomped on.  And where 7 Republican signs were on the left side of the road like the right, those 7 are now gone.  Up the road one of Brad Salmon's signs looks torn.  Several of Ellmers signs were stolen in the 2012 election season.  Every time I would put one out, it disappeared by morning.  I hated that in 2012.  I hate it now. Wrong is wrong.    So who's going to tattle and tell me who did it? 
 
5) Ahhh those darn fracking opponents...You would literally have to believe Mike Stone wants to kill you if you believe all the hype from the left.  If it's killing people, please explain why North Dakota, Colorado, and Texas are booming like crazy because of it?  Somebody has to work those jobs.  I'm surprised someone hasn't accused him of having ownership in the funeral home. Think about that for awhile.  Someone is probably trying to figure out how to do it as you read this.
 
Virginia...stay out of politics.

Is being raped by a Republican worse than being raped by a Democrat, Unaffiliated, Etc?


It's disturbing to me that anyone feels the need to disclose the political affiliation of their rapist. Is it an attempt to make said political party seem more evil than other political parties?  

A rapist's political affiliation has as much to do with rape as sexual desire does. Rape is an act of violence and an act of control, and people in any political party (or no political party) can use violence as a means of controlling others.

I have friends who have been assaulted, and I'm sure their attackers didn't care what political party their victims did or didn't belong to.

Political affiliation had nothing to do with Lena Dunham's sexual assault either. Giving attention to that takes attention away from the real story - violence on college campuses. 

I warn you, though.  The article is graphic.

And We Wonder Why Our Economy STINKS!

 
Companies are penalized in the US just for being a business.  Companies are penalized when they leave the US. 

Business is in business to make money.  Not provide jobs - that's a benefit.  And definitely not to provide government coffers with money.  No wonder US is falling behind China and others. We use to be the strongest nation in the world. 

Thank you liberals.  Job well done.  But let's give this nasty credit to Republicans as well.  They shouldn't be left off.

And furthermore, it shouldn't cost this pharmaceutical 1/4 of a billion dollars to leave the US.  And they wouldn't be wanting to leave in the first place if Obamacare didn't exist and our tax policies were, and oh here's that word that flies out of the left's mouths...
 
FAIR!

True in 1929, still true now


"It is difficult for men in high office to avoid the malady of self-delusion. They are always surrounded by worshippers. They are constantly, and for the most part sincerely, assured of their greatness."

"They live in an artificial atmosphere of adulation and exaltation which sooner or later impairs their judgement. They are in grave danger of becoming careless and arrogant."  

This accurate assessment of people in high office was written in 1929 by President Calvin Coolidge in his autobiography, The Autobiography of Calvin Coolidge.  Coolidge was a lawyer, and he began his career in public office in 1906. 

 He'd been a politician long enough to know the truth, and he clearly expressed what life is like for D.C. politicians.
What was true in 1929 is still true now.  They needed term limits for U. S. Congressman and Senators then, and we need them now.

Yes, Teaching Math Facts IS Important



This article, Kid's brains reorganize when learning math skills,  has a simple take-home message:

Drilling kids on simple addition and multiplication may pay off.  "Experience really does matter," said Dr. Kathy Mann Koepke of the National Institutes of Heath, which funded the research. 

I see no problem with teaching kids alternative ways to look at how math works, like is done with Common Core curriculum.  But doing so instead of teaching math facts is a big mistake.
