I Just Learned That They Don't Teach Cursive Writing In Schools These Days.....

Is that true? I just now was talking with a friend that overheard two mothers talking about this with respect to their children and the schools they pick for them. She heard one of the mothers say - that teachers just don't have time to teach kids how to write.

I'm shocked!!!!!!!

Now - I'm about to retire and I guess I'm old school - but how can anyone get by without knowing how to write? If they don't know how to write - does that mean that they will be unable to read anything that is written in cursive as well? Doesn't our signature mean anything anymore?

Yes - I realize that we're a computer based society and it is important to learn keyboarding - but come on folks - we're talking about the basics here.

I'm putting this out here on DU because I'd like to illicit some responses as to what others feel about this. Perhaps even some teachers here on DU might have an opinion as well. Am I an old fuddy duddy and just not with the times or do I have a point?

I've Been Away From The Computer Today And Just Got Back On & Reading Bernie Going Negative?....

There are a few posts here - mainly in the Hillary Group - that say that Bernie has gone negative. What did he say or do to generate that feedback from the Hillary people?

I Can't Believe That MSNBC Interupts Bernie's Town Hall With Breaking News About Repugs &....

Trump. Whatever motivated them to break in. That was news that was publicized all day. It wasn't breaking. Couldn't they wait unit the break between Bernie's town hall and Hillary's town hall? I bet they won't break into Hillary's town hall.

Bernie was burning it up in this town hall. He was controlling the moderator and was really handling the questions - probably the best I've heard him. I guess MSM can't let that happen.

How Is Saying 'Poor People Don't Vote' Disparaging To Poor People?.....

Joy Reid just say that Bernie's comment is disparaging to poor people and I completely disagree with her.

What is disparaging to poor people is keeping them poor. They've been poor so long that they see no hope of ever climbing out of poverty. They believe that the deck is stacked against them and they've been demotivated to vote - because they believe their vote won't count. They lost confidence in the system. They have been made to lose self-respect.

Couple that with the voter suppression going on in this country and you get a block of Americans that don't vote. They can't afford the ID's required in some states. They can't get to the polls for lack of transportation. Polling places are shut down in their areas.

It is all this that is disparaging to poor people. Not Bernie stating the truth that 'Poor people don't vote'.

That is what Bernie's campaign is all about - lifting those that are poor, elderly, disabled, students, middle class and righting the wrongs with income inequality.

Is It Me Or Does Anybody Else Feel....

extorted in to having to vote for Hillary?

Asked This Question Last Night - Given The Situation I Don't Think People Were In A Mood To Answer..

What percentage of the American People know of the FBI investigation surrounding Hillary?

I'm asking this question because I was talking with a friend yesterday and she knew nothing of this investigation. I was kind of shocked - but - I realize that there are a lot of people out there that just aren't into this election like we may be here at DU.
We've read details here about this.

Has there been any polling of the American People on this?

Just wondering as I don't hear it talked about much on the cable news channels and I'm not sure how the newspapers are covering this either.

It just struck me that if people don't know about this FBI investigation and the potential for Hillary being indicted that they aren't taking that into consideration when they go to vote.

Really - come on now - a presidential candidate under FBI investigation?

What kind of message does that send to our allies and enemies around the world? How do voters feel about a person that has the potential to become president and also has an FBI investigation hanging over her head?

It seems to me if it was any other candidate - that such a thing would be toxic to them and would prevent them from even running or being able to run. One would think their Party would see it as a 'red flag'. Why take a chance on a person that might be indicted by the FBI?

I'm really curious now and want an answer to - "What percentage of the American People know of this FBI investigation of Hillary?"

Bernie hasn't gone there. He hasn't mentioned it or brought it up in his campaigning against Hillary. He has strictly stayed with the issues. In a way I think he's let her off the hook on that. Remember what he said about 'those damned e-mails' way back when.

You can bet your boots that whomever the Repug nominee is - they will not hold back on that. Unfortunately - it would be after Hillary would have secured the nomination and the Repugs bringing that up could cost her and the Dems the White House.

I'm curious as to what others here think about this?

Time To Break Out The Checkbook & Make Another Donation To Bernie.....

There are still states out there that haven't voted yet. I want to give those Americans the opportunity to experience Bernie firsthand and hear of a future to believe in. I want to give those Americans the opportunity to vote for Bernie. Anything can happen yet folks. Too many issues are surrounding Hillary and I don't think a person under investigation by the FBI should become president. What kind of message does that send around the world. Her unfavorability rises by the week. The Repugs will make mincemeat of her in the GE. We can't throw in the towel now there is too much at stake. Let's make April even be a bigger month for Bernie.

Crack out the credit cards folks. Donate today and let's show the gloaters that we're not giving up.

Go Bernie!!!

Feel the Bern!!!!

Was There A News Drop Last Night (Friday) Re: FBI Investigation & Hillary.....

I was just getting started in my car about midnight or so. I was going to be driving home after visiting with a friend. I turned the car on and then turned my radio on to Sirius FM and caught just the last bit of a news story - I thought it had something to do with Hillary and the FBI. I was kind of half listening - so I really didn't catch the gist of the story. It bugged me all night as I was thinking that it might not be good news for Hillary - in that it was coming on a Friday night going into a weekend where they usually bury bad news stories.

Does anyone here know if there were any developments with respect to this?

"You Couldn't Get A Job At McD's, Or A Job Anywhere In The Country, Telling Your Employer That You..

have an upcoming interview with the FBI."

This is a quote from an article I came across tonight re: Hillary's FBI Investigation. This article is chock full of interesting tidbits about Hillary's FBI problems.
