No such things as zombies????? Have you seen any recent photos of Keith Richards, or Mick Jagger? Also ask yourself "how else could they have survived this long, considering their wild past?"

I enjoy watching the reactions people have when I'm polite or complementary to them. I'm a 60 year old white man, and I enjoy the smile and "thank you" I get when I hold the door open for a younger black woman. I also enjoy the reaction I get when I say "You too. Have a great day" to a cashier who has wished me a good day. I also enjoy the smile and laugh I get when someone asks me how I am and I say "Not bad for an old man with an '84 Chevy." Try it, not only will you give someone else a lift, but you will feel better too.
When Germany took over Denmark, Hitler ordered all Jews to wear a star of David. They complied, but the king also wore one, along with most of the people of Denmark. I like that! If some sort of registration was ordered in a country, could you imagine the chaos if everyone in the country registered as a Jew? The system would overload!

Wrestling Chaos in America's Classrooms

I taught at a high school where the teachers could not sent the students to the office on a first offence. We had to call the parents and talk with them about it. I had 2 boys come close to blows, I sent them to the office, and they were sent right back to class. All the admin. was worried about was retirement. Another time, I was teaching at an adult ed school. A student threatened another with a big knife. The dean told the teacher that he should give the student another chance... Next time, the student was drunk and had a 38 pistol. The dean tried the same speech, and the teacher said that he would dismiss the class for the safety of everyone if that student showed up again. No support!
One thing was overlooked. In the Garden of Gesthemity, the Lord, Jesus Christ, took upon himself the sins of the world. It was such a horrible experience that he asked to have the "bitter cup" removed from him and he bled from every pore. He then said "not my will, but Thy will be done" to submit to the will of the Father. By taking upon himself the sins of the world, and then being offered as a perfect sacrifice, he made it possible for everyone to live with Him and the Father, if we will accept His sacrifice, and live according to His will. He arose from the dead, and made it possible for all of us to do the same, and this is what Easter is about, the Resurrection.

Overtaxed and Underpaid

My daughter, 22, earned just over $8000 last year and attended college. She paid $206 in federal income tax, and $45 in California state tax. Why? Because I claim her as a dependent. It's crazy!

Equality in Discipline

There needs to be a few more administrators like Joe Clark in the movie "Lean On Me". One problem however, was that he got on the teachers for not disciplining the students. I have taught at a high school where the administration would not back up the teachers. The students act up, and nothing happens to them. I had 2 students start to fight, I sent them to the office, and they were immediately sent back to class. I was chewed out because the policy was that students could be sent to the office only after the teacher contacted the parents for a first offence of any infraction, then if it happened again, the students could be sent to the office. It was little wonder that after a while, teachers gave up because they had no support.

A boy pushed an outhouse into a river. Later, his father asked him if he did it. The boy had just heard the story of George Washington and the cherry tree said: "I can not tell a lie. I pushed it in." The father gave the boy a sound thrashing. The boy asked his father: "Have you heard the story of George Washington, the cherry tree, and how his father would not punish him because he told the truth". The father answered: "Yes, I have heard this story, but I'd bet that George Washington's father was not in the cherry tree when he chopped it down." I hope the voters in Nevada remember this.

College Isn't For Everyone

Voc. Ed. programs in community colleges have been cut back. There is not a semester welding course in all of San Diego County. The only thing I found was a 600 hour program for ship construction. Carpentry is gone. The same is true for machine shop. Sure, many people use CNC machining, but small custom shops use manual machines, many being decades old, but they do the job. Some courses of study need to come out of the college with all of the general ed. requirements, and be replaced with a certificate of satisfactory completion of a program.
There is more good information on KUSI's web site. Click on Weather, then click on Coleman's Corner. John Coleman has some good brief videos and essays about the fraudulent schemes surrounding climate change.
