What would I do if a kid brought me that clock when I was teaching?

First if all, if you have a caring bone in your body and are paying attention, you know what kind of kid he is. You already have a clue if he has sketchy behavior in some way. This goes for most if not all of your students.

Secondly, I would be curious about how he made it just out of interest. I'd ask him questions and not because he was Ahmed or John or Susie. I'd ask because I would think it ingenious to take it on himself to do it. I know many people who are tinkerers. They were always taking everything apart and fixing things.

These people are bigoted, scared dolts. All kids want to be noticed and are eager to show what they can do. Many are apprehensive no matter what it is. Just listen to them and talk to them. It can make a great deal of difference and you can learn a lot too.

Do you know who Zach Hammond is? You should.

He is a 19-year-old white teenager from Seneca SC who was shot in the back when the police tried to arrest him on a pot bust. He was eating ice cream with a friend at a fast food establishment. They won't release the dash cam video.

His parents have gotten some support from the community but many have shut them out. They probably view it as a bad kid that deserved it.

The Black Lives Matter group and others from Clemson University have been tweeting and standing with the Hammond family. The All Lives Matter bunch could care less apparently.

Zach Hammond isn't more important than the black men and women that have been killed. He is another piece in the mosaic of victims of police out of control. I have said and I believe that those that command the forces of 'order' serve one thing. They serve themselves and use that 'order' as an excuse. Blacks and other people of color bear the brunt of it. Make no mistake though. The police will come after you too if you are perceived as a threat and/or they run out of other scapegoats.
Stand up now!

This is the religious hooha I heard today from my friend:

Paul's revelations came from Jesus himself - many try to down play his authority but he tells you plainly where it comes from the Christ himself - he is the apostle to the Gentiles which is us.

So you only believe the 4 gospels which are written to the Jews - ok didn't know you were Jewish but that's good to know - Paul only reflects what Jesus says - for Christians Jesus is the one we imitate - Paul writes for us - gospels apply too but Jesus hardly ever addresses Gentiles in the gospels look & see for yourself - that is the mystery spoke of that since the Jews rejected him - we now partake of what they were to do to spread the good news- GOD is for everyone not just the Jews salvation comes thru Christ thru grace & faith.

I have NEVER heard this interpretation in my life. We have to have Paul because Jesus only talked to Jews?
Paul is a revisionist asshole. I asked her what she expected Paul to say? He got his revelations from the Governor of Rome.

Arguing about the baptism of Smurfs makes more sense.

I just went after an old friend of mine.

We have had a detente on Facebook. She keeps posting screeds against welfare people who take ALL her money. She also posts about Jesus and Amen. I finally had enough.

I asked about corporate tax avoidance and the fact that most welfare recipients do work. That was dismissed as nonsense. I then told her the poor were mentioned over 1000 times in the Bible. WWJD? She brought up that old standby Paul. I asked her when did what Paul said ever supercede what Jesus said. Jesus didn't ask for pay stubs or country of origin papers.

I can Bible battle with the best.

Oh well. Easy come. Easy go.
Another one bites the dust.
