Show me the poll numbers that Chris Christie could "beat" Obama. "The people of New Jersey love him." Obviously since the people of New Jersey are a perfect cross-section of the rest of America, it makes total sense that he is "popular." "yes, alprova..you smug, liberal elitest....you can stay up to the wee hours
tracking down poll numbers and crossing every t and dotting every i . . ." Research can do amazing things. Unless you actually have empiracal data to back up your outrageous statements (like alprova), then they are useless. Hitler could beat Obama. I don't have any data, but because I said it it must be true. Welcome to the world that Francis inhabits.
You are a real credit to football fans everywhere. You should really be patting yourself on the back right now with comments like the one above.
Why should you be disappointed in him? He runs one of the best, if not the best, high school in Hamilton County, a place typically known for it's poor educational standards. How is he able to control the behavior of students outside of school? If you have a solution to that problem, I would love to hear it. The man said something that he now regrets, I'm sure you've never had a moment like that. If you don't like his school or that way he runs it, you are more than welcome to pull your children out and send them to one of the numerous private schools available in the area.
I really enjoy how you turn a local story into a national issue that has absolutely no connection to the issue at hand. God forbid that Clay Bennett, a cartoonist employed by the CHATTANOOGA Times Free Press, draw a cartoon dealing with a story happening in Chattanooga. Beyond sarcasm, it should be noted that once you develop the requisite amount of artistic talent and reputation needed to become a political cartoonist on the level that Clay Bennett is on (nominated six times for the Pulitzer Prize, won it in 2002, while working for the well-respected Christian Science Monitor), you are more than welcome to criticize others.
It is obvious that you bring quite the air of civility to the conversation. I applaud you for avoiding the reference to Christie O'Donnell. I think I smell red herring in the room . . .
If you actually read closely you would see that he is not referencing any other cartoonist. As for the "Delaware witch party," perhaps the Republicans/Tea Party members should have picked a candidate with thicker skin and who hadn't lost the election before the campaign season even began.
I'm a little bit confused. According to multiple posters, the Tea Party is putting elected officials on notice that if they do not toe the Tea Party line, then they will be voted out. So if the Tea Party is supposed to have such a large base of angry Americans, then why did did only 32% of the 140 Tea Party-backed candidates win? Perhaps Christie O'Donnell wasn't the answer to your problem?
Just to be clear, you support a clearly illegal action taking place in our schools? Do you think it is a good idea to teach students that because Christ commands you to share the Word of God, you should do so even if that act is illegal and there are easy alternatives (e.g., not praying over a loudspeaker) that are legal that allow students to pray? What about those students who are Muslim, Jewish, Agnostics, etc. who attend these football games? As a captive audience (which they are according to the Supreme Court) at a school-sponsored event, should they be subjected to proselytization?
Yes. Understanding those facts, go read Santa Fe v. Doe. The facts of that case and the prayer conducted by students over a loudspeaker in Soddy are nearly identical. The Supreme Court found those actions to be unconstitutional and illegal. So once again, I'll ask the questions:
Do you support the illegal prayer? Do you think it is a good lesson to teach the students of the school district that it is alright to support illegal practices? For that matter, do you believe it is a good idea to teach the students that they should just be quiet if they observe an illegal practice because it has been "tradition" in this area?
