THANK YOU Carl, for bringing awareness to this very important issue. Westboro Baptist is not aRead More danger to anyone, truly. The mentality of Rick Warren and Saddleback Church, however, IS a danger. He puts a "pretty face" on the infliction of harm on people created in God's image. The sad thing is that many good people of Orange County and even around the world have put their faith in this man who inflicts so much harm on the LGBTQ community. Just ask the LGBTQ people in Uganda and Russia. A brother to Franklin Graham; a shame to Billy Graham.
Marianne Williamson has already accepted more than 1 million in campaign contributions, well ahead of all other candidates, yet she claims she wants campaign financ reform.  Interesting?

At first, I was put off by Marianne's entry into this arena- partly due to the self- help industry/Read More religious connotations- but also due to her lack of real political experience- then I thought about those doing it- what a joke- welcome Marianne- I like what you say and I for one- am tired of "entitled" relatives who think it's their right to have this career- keep standing up- time for new blood- Lei lost me- as has Shriver-

Thank, Snow...I think. I guess that's why my pizza is always cold before I get it home....

Hey Snow - I think you are giving us a snow job. Don't take that wrong- it's more interestingRead More that way.
Snow April 20, 2014 at 09:13 pm
Hey mimi- not a snow job at all- I'm trying to figure out the squirrels on the neighbors roof sideRead More trip is all. It caught my attention- on a nationwide site where not much catches my attention anymore. A good thing. I like someone who just doesn't write the same old stuff I've heard a million times. I like when someone is quirky and leads down paths that some readers breeze past, but I say--- hey- what was that about? I just don't read and give platitudes. I read and ask questions if I find it interesting, for I want to know more. And--I found this interesting. Thanks Brian.

Seriously????!! It's just now becoming a question to ponder? Of course it produces better results!Read More It's a matter of respecting education and the educators. Cutting their pay tells them that they aren't as important as the issues at hand and so money needs to go elsewhere. Our problem is a lack of respect for education in this Nation. We need to look beyond our states. Other countries view school much differently, with better results. I went to school in Costa Rica for the beginning of Grammar school. Teachers are valued liked doctors and lawyers are here. They also had to do comparable schooling to become teachers, as well. 98% literally rate there. Can we say the same? NO. When the teachers love their job, are thanked and valued for it, it shows in our students as well. Then children enjoy learning. Easy.

I am so for this approach! Pay more and get rid if tenure! No one should be guaranteed their jobRead More forever and it makes for failing schools!

I'm on that bandwagon, too.
