About Me

But there must be the consensus. I tend to think that if one person is strongly opposed to a lock, and is making that stand based on some principle they are able to articulate, then that position should be respected and consensus does not exist. But if some people are just-kinda-meh-not-sure opposed to a lock, then you can assume that consensus exists. But I think the bigger picture is that if everyone is doing the job in good faith and being polite to each other, then it should not be very hard to determine if consensus exists and act accordingly. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12595617 [/div] ~~~~~~ Hi Jerry!!! :thumbsup:[font color=blue][b][link:http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1269|Visit the new DU \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Progressive Media Resources Group\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"][/font size][/font color][/b]:thumbsup: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/assets/121223012937-11-obama-face-1223-horizontal-gallery.jpg :thumbsup:[font color = blue][b][link:http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1269|Visit the new DU \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Progressive Media Resources Group\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"][/font size][/font color][/b]:thumbsup: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/assets/121223012937-11-obama-face-1223-horizontal-gallery.jpg

Can I use a Tapir? With a Tapir, I could take out hundred Biebers, easy.

Fuck that shit, starry messenger. I mean it, fuck. that. shit. Posting to my Journal.

Are we having to put quotes around phases to make clear one thing or the other?

Honestly, I think there may be some willful misunderstanding going on if I can't be accepted as being on the right side of issues.

Without using quotes, FFS. Is there a progressive style guide I should consult???

Catch Phrases and Word Salad from a K-6 LAUSD school.



Witness these crushingly strained compositions that only a state educational grant writer could love, or comprehend, proudly flying on a banner.

The banner is above the steps of a Los Angeles Unified Elementary School, where the students are predominantly from non-English speaking homes.

56% English Language learners, 100% Free/reduced Federal Lunch Program, I wonder who is supposed to read these words at this K-6 school.





Do I really have to ask the question, "What the Fuck is Wrong with Schools??"

Oh, also, this is the school that was shut down temporarily following the discovery that a teacher was serving cookies topped with his own semen, and taking pictures of the kids eating them, and other stuff.

Here's the teacher, Mark Berndt:

Fuck Ann Romney or the horse she rode in on?

Inspired by, but not a copycat of, Trumad's awesome post: http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002916873

So, your choice:

An All Expenses Paid Evening of ROMANCE (food, or feed, and drink included, and a nice penthouse apartment/stable for the evening).

What's your choice:

Ann "I feel like all Obama's doing is saying, 'Let's kill this guy.' " Romney?



or

A vibrant and articulate equine, a fine specimen, and almost certainly brighter?



Your call:




Thank you, Sheriff Taylor, the dad I never had.

I probably owe more to Andy Griffith and the skills he portrayed as a father on the Andy Griffith show for my upbringing than to any other male figure ever alive.


I came up on a defunct due to death asparagus ranch, raised by grandmother in a home with mom and sister, four years older, and attended a two-teacher eight-grade school.

Like Mayberry, I was raised in a rural setting, without even running drinking water (we had to go to a well to refill what fed a single kitchen spigot).

We had a Black and White TV that my mom bought my grandfather with her first paycheck.

Three years and 14 days younger than Ron Howard, Opie was the boy I longed to be.

And Andy was the dad that I never had, but for lack of any other came to teach me values, and morals, and kindness and goodness, and how to be happy with just the way things are, and without preaching about it.

Thanks, Sheriff. Thanks, Pop.

Rest In Peace.



PS: Fact is, my DU user name is inspired by Barney, who was once heard to say, "Andy, I think we got us an SKP!" (escapee)
