If the school boards hadn't been seduced by the lure of federal monies, they would have said no to this program a long time ago. They want to have their cake and eat it, too (an apt comparison) by continuing to get government monies (which immediately goes into the trash can when the student won't eat the food) and serving food that the students will eat. You can't have it both ways. Get off the goverment teat.
No, how are Jews? What a bigoted, racist remark. Are you talking about the 6 million-plus Jews who were murdered by the Nazis during WWII or by those in Israel who are under continued and unceasing attack every day. Or are you talking about Jews in the United States who have a right to the same freedoms that you do. Grow up, little Willie.
A cute ad that gets the point across in a clear, concise and fun way. I don't think it's sexist, but I do think it is age-ist. Just because we are older (I'm a 62-year old Baby Boomer), doesn't mean that we aren't just as informed as the Millenials.
What you are suggesting is an act of war.
If you don't think the server deserves a 20% tip, DON'T GIVE IT TO HIM. It's your money. And please spare me the "do you know how much they make an hour?" cr-p. If they wanted to make more, they should find a job that pays more. TIPS - To Insure Prompt Service. There have been many times I've left no tip at all because the service was so bad.

"For one liberal it's wrong to steal but for another it's OK for whatever the reason." For most liberals, it's OK to steal, as long as you aren't stealing from them. And they do it every day with the taxes we pay -- welfare, housing, Obama phones, food stamps, student loans that won't have to be paid back, etc.

No, Giles is saying that you should learn skills to protect yourself so that you don't have to live in fear of rape and murder. Learn how to protect yourself. Remember the movie Miss Congeniality and Sandra Bullock's demonstration -- head butt, elbow to the solar plexus, fist to the groin, and foot stomp. Simple moves. And if your area allows concealed carry, then get a gun and a permit. Don't tell anyone you are carrying, but empower yourself. His rules are the same as the ones I gave my daughter when she first started dating. (1) Dress modestly. Men are visual creatures and the more skin you show, the more excited they get. (2) Don't get drunk. Don't even get tipsy. If you can't have a good time sober, you probably shouldn't be wherever it is you are. And when you get drunk, you lose control of yourself, and someone else finds it easier to take control of you. (3) Stay with your friends. You came as a group, so leave as a group. And (4) Nothing good happens after midnight. Drunks are roaming the streets behind the wheel of a 1,000 lb. (or more) weapon. If it comes to a confrontation between you and a car/truck, you will always lose. We sat down and listened to Donna Summers' "Last Dance" and I asked her to tell me what she was hearing. Her answer, desperate people who didn't want to be alone and who would hook up with anybody just to have a little companionship.

"ALL of the 'victims' are victims of the same oppressors: White males of European descent!" Are you nuts? White males of European descent do not have a monopoly on being oppressors. If this was the case, there wouldn't be a Mafia, Asian Tongs, Pol Pot, Al Kaida, the Muslim Brotherhood, black-on-black murder in Chicago. Ghenghis Khan would not have conquered the majority of the known world. The Japanese wouldn't have bombed Pearl Harbor and treated their POWs horrendously. The North Koreans and North Vietnamese wouldn't have tortured and maimed POWS. People are people, no matter what their lineage, and human nature is the same whether you are white, brown, black, yellow or red.
I agree with Dr. Carson. Rather than just throwing him out, the NFL should have put him on an indefinite suspension without pay and required him AND his wife to go through counselling. He is guilty of physical abuse, but she is equally guilty of allowing herself to be abused. They both need a major attitude adjustment. Human beings are not punching bags. Once they have completed the counselling and have been cleared by the counselor, the NFL can then review the matter and decide whether he should be reinstated or fired.
I don't mean to seem unfeeling, but one person dies in a 6.0 earthquake and it deserves a Reuters article?. Why not an article about the 200 people who were injured or the $80 million of damage to the crops?. Is her family going to sue the manufacturer of the TV or the company that made or sold the bracket it was mounted on? Aren't there more important things going on in the world that need to have articles printed. Benghazi, the IRS "missing emails", ISIS.
