    Well that would explain our current situation. Only now the power is more centralized. School boards used to have more autonomy. But the more money-dependent schools became (some due to the redistribution of the property taxes collected) on the state and federal govt. The more power they lost.. I know they call it Public School, but that place is much more secretive than people let on.

    My kid was given a test this year that I was not allowed to even see. She was voted on by a secret panel of people, which I was not able to determine had the qualifications to make such determinations. Upon a disputed determination it was reviewed by another secret panel… You think I am talking about national security, not a 4th grade test… but you would be wrong.

    For all that is less than what we’d like we ought not attribute to some god. Intead it’d be nice we accept the responsibility to do something about that. Fight city hall!

    oh, pooh.

    god didnt make any idiots………idiots are a part of

    the natural order of human affairs.

    in my own opinion, i think each person is born with

    a HUGE capacity for idiocy…….and that only

    learned observation, introspection, and

    and a cultivated reverence for knowledge will

    pull them apart from the generally idiot

    outlook that governs so many, many minds.

    Actually I never see or hear of anyone attributing anything negative to god. Well except that one football player who got mad and blamed god when he dropped a touchdown pass. I dubbed him Bizarro Tebow

    Kittie my dad blames everything that goes wrong on god. Usually goes like this “that filthy f_cking c_ck suckers got nothing better to than _____fill in the blank____ and ruin my god damn day”.

    It was only last month that he told me he doesn’t actually believe in god. I’m 48 and he is 79.

    THAT is funny! My dad used to say DodDammit! instead of Goddamn it – so technically it wasn’t a sin. He was born in 1923. He died thinking Mary Magdalene was a whore. Church of Christ – go figure.
