wasn't it Ronald Reagan who decided that ketchup could count as a vegetable in school lunch?
and wait, wasn't it the republican congress last year who made usda consider the tomato sauce on square school lunch pizza as a serving of vegetables?
I'm a man, and sometimes out in public I had to take my daughter to the men's room when she was little. I'm sure other men have occasions where they have to do that, too. And I know women take little boys all the time.
Where are Tommie Brown, JoAnne Favors and the NAACP when events like this happen? This is obviously Manny Rico's fault and he should resign from the Council.
I've been puzzling over this statement in the back of my mind all day, and I still don't understand it. Riverman, would you please try to break this down for me and explain what the point is you are trying to make? From the comments posted later, the best I can come up with for the first sentence is that these individuals are black, and since the folks involved in the shooting are probably black, then these individuals should say something about it. But that doesn't make any sense. What are they supposed to say? Why should they be saying anything? And then the part about Manny Rico, that doesn't even fit with this, because I don't think he's black and I don't think that his district was where the shootings were. So I can't figure that part out, either. Riverman, could you please try to break this down and explain what you were trying to communicate? I'm sorry but I can't figure it out.
I"m still waiting on the naacp and all those hordes of ministers that loved the camera when they did that "Stand Up and Be Heard" crap. Well? Where are they? Best I can figure out is that they support the black on black violence. If not then they would be doing something.
Again, why is the NAACP supposed to say something about this shooting? I don't get that point. Please explain it. You were proud enough to write in the first place, please try to communicate it clearly so that your point will be understood, because I honestly can't make sense of it. Thank you so much.
I've read a lot of racist stuff, but is that a call for genocide?
some guy is already saying that about "it's a wonderful life" - truth > fiction=-
"Grundy has a 14 percent unemployment rate, 38 percent of the population is receiving food stamps and 87 percent of Grundy's school children qualify for the federal free-and-reduced-lunch program"
They need to go out and get a job! Pull themselves up by their bootstraps, instead of expecting tax payers to foot their bill. And if 14 percent are unemployed but 3%8 get food stamps, that means 24% are getting food stamps even though they work - talk about ripping off the system! They should put them in jail! Always wanting a hand out.
So instead of voting for someone that can work well with other leaders to do what is best for the country, they want to vote for someone who is "adversarial" - and then the rest of us wonder why government can't get anything done.
Wow. I didn't know that black school board members only represented the "interests of the black community."
somebody is going to end up getting killed this way.
