Eric, you can add one very frustrated grandfather and one very frustrated grandmother to the list. We have custody of our 3rd grade granddaughter. I was taught arithmetic by the rote method - that's memorization for those of you "educated" in California. We "carried" and "borrowed". We didn't "chunk" or "count-up". My granddaughter filled half a sheet of notebook paper doing one simple subtraction problem that I did in one small corner. It's like my son said several years ago about his college chemistry class, they take something simple and make it complicated.
OK, Adams, how many more years are you going to be in court???
I'd love for Georgia to join you, along with the three states in between us. Then add Virginia, Tennessee, the Carolina's and Arkansas and the SOUTH SHALL RISE AGAIN! Better yet, instead of seceding, why not kick out the "blue" states and let them form the USSA (United Soviet States of America) BTW, when I was in grade school and coloring presidential election maps, blue was used for Republican states and red for Democrat states. Hmm, maybe red was too true a color for them and they somehow forced the switch so the wouldn't look communist.

We have a poor choice - once again - here in Georgia. We have Nunn, a lying Obamacrat and Perdue, cousin to our ex-governor. Frankly, I'd rather vote for the stray mutt walking down the street.

Truett Cathy's Faith Flavored Chick-fil-A

While I am not a religious man and didn't share the same religious beliefs as Mr. Truett (Mr. Truett is the proper way we address our elders here in the South), I admired him for his firm stand on his beliefs - even in a world that seems opposed to a business being closed on Sunday because that is the way the owner of the business believes. Chick-fil-A is THEE standard bearer in the fast food industry; indeed even the entire restaurant industry. My condolences to his family and friends.
Of course the Constitution is “conspicuously silent on the topic of education”. When the Constitution was written, compulsory school attendance was not mandated by any state in the union. (Massachusetts was the first state to mandate compulsory school attendance in 1852.) Also, the writers knew, correctly, that education is the responsibility of the parents, not the state. US history shows that socialism grew in popularity on-wards from the late 19th Century. By the 1920’s our first openly socialist president, Woodrow Wilson (1913 to 1921), had promoted socialism to the extent that socialist legislators in both houses did not have a problem imposing on the states’ sovereign rights and handing out money for “education”. And, as we all know, the money comes with all the strings attached.
I know this is a rhetorical question, but I'll answer for the low IQ's that are attempting to read this. The answer is: NOTHING!
Yes I do; as in completely free of all unnecessary government interference. Thanks for clearing that up. Sometimes the way something is written does not fully explain one's position on a given subject. I know, I've had that happen to me.
Quick question, Tin. You say that YouTube is a private company and therefore, "as such should be able to post or prohibit any content they want" - i.e., serve or not serve anyone they want. What about all those private companies that wish to serve or not serve anyone they want and do not want to serve homosexuals from their businesses? Tit-for-tat???
And he UN shouldn't matter to the US either. It's past time for us, the US, to pull out and kick the UN out of the US.
Basically what I said, T.
