This was probably the dumbest, most narcissistic, post that wimp Cook has written.
Where to start.....
First of all, why does someone we taxpayers PAY deserve special honors over and above anyone else? We "honor" them with Cadillac insurance, a great retirement, job security, and a easy, cushy job already. Not to mention A PAYCHECK.
Teaching is a "calling?" Give me a break...Yea, the calling is that "I don't want a real job, 2 month vacations, one month at Christmas and lifetime job security with almost no chance of being fired no matter how bad I do my job."
Teachers are "our most valuable elders.." What a stupid narcissistic statement. What about people who invent the things that make us live better, what about doctors, what about policemen and firemen and above all, what about businessmen who provide taxes and the jobs which provide other taxes to pay your inflated, benefits and salaries.
You damn liberals just had to have Obamacare but only want if for everyone else. This is the bed you liberals made. If I were a school board member, I would suggest doing away with insurance all together and let some of you superior individuals (teachers) get Obamacare. Then you might find out what the rest of us have to deal with that don't live in your little protected "governmentland" ivory tower.
Teachers...you don't want an idiot like Cook writing this kind of stuff. It makes your job harder and diminishes your stature because he makes you all look like narcissistic, self-aggrandizing, selfish, cry babies.
Believe me..this article made you all look bad. Why don't you guys go out and find you a small business person and thank them for providing the resources that keep you afloat. Yea...I won't hold my breath.
Bennett...I don't make comments on childish things like Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, the Tooth fairy, or...man made climate change. They are all myths.
Bennett you are in idiot.
I agree with the writer. Wamp is a spoiled, selfish, self-absorbed kid. No doubt that his responses proved that point.
This idea that Chuck somehow went overboard in defeating Wamp is ludicrous. Those ads were no more negative than most others in mamy races. Look how negative Dejarlais was treated by the Republican establishment.
No, Wamp got what he deserved for literally making deals with several left wing devils to even get close to Chuck. Without democrat cross-overs, he wouldn't have come close.
You can't spell Wamp with a Whaaaa....
Also, the only disgusting people I know are Pam Sohn, Clint Cooper, and Chris Vaas. Again, they are so unethical they have no credibility to criticize anyone.
The voters have spoken? No, they have been manipulated by an unethical, unfair press.
You damn TFP hypocrites have no right to judge anyone. They are more corrupt than the people they try to belittle.
Cooper....according to you and the TFP, watchdogs are not needed. These people in NY just didn't understand. How dare they look out for innocent people. These prosecutors were just negative, nit-pickers, ect.
Like Rhonda Thurman.......you damn hypocrite. You have no right to even attempt to question anyone else's honesty when your newspaper engages in unfairness and unethical behavior.
conservative - sorry, you were right.
inquiringmind....I guess the apocalypse is around the corner. I agree with you. This town is corrupt to the core. It is democrat and republican. Conservative puts his head in the sand when Republicans are doing bad but it pops right back out when a democrats does something wrong.
I am a conservative but am absolutely ashamed at the recent conduct of the Republican party. They are an embarrassment. Robin Smith is a big part of the shenanigans being played. Her preaching to the rest of us is bizarre. I don't know which is worse, if she is just corrupt or is some kind of political sociopath who doesn't have a clue she is doing wrong.
Honesty first, then we can argue about the rest.
It is absolutely amazing that Bennett and liberals don't get that when you shoot thousands of rockets into a country indiscriminately is bad.
Hamas is a terrorist organization that has called for the destruction of Israel. If Israel wanted to destroy Gaza it would be no more than a greasy spot. They could do the same to every major Muslim city in the Middle East.
Saying that it is Israels fault is bizarre.
Bennett is just plain stupid. It is the Muslims that don't want to coexist. Their religion calls for infidels to either become Muslims or die. ISIS is doing that right now.
Christians over the centuries have been guilty of forcing their religion in that region but the Muslims also went into Europe for the same purpose.
To compare Christians to Muslims is like comparing a Chihuahua to a pit bull. The only similarity is they are both religions.
There is no argument here. Anyone like Bennett who tries this line makes himself look stupid.
Average temperatures in the ocean have gone down .1 degree over the last 18 years. The polar and Antarctic ice are increasing. This is the coolest summer in years. etc. etc.
Sohn and the global warming worshipers are wrong and they know it.
