retired history teacher & medical "something"
Two words – government paperwork. Actually, the paperwork is caused by entitled parents who insist that their child never does anything wrong, and threaten to sue. But it’s the paperwork that’ll kill ya.
Did you follow the links super posted, particularly the last one? I actually had a child say pretty much this exact thing to me in a history class. I responded by giving him the name of a famous Black person and asked for a report by the next morning. One of the other students snickered, and I ended up giving every single one of them a different person to research. Not a “gimme” in the list and I spouted them all off by memory. From Absalom Jones to Henry Flipper to Claudette Colvin.
Just don’t tell me you can’t do something because of your race.
OK – natural disasters include volcano eruptions, tsunamis, earthquakes, and the like. By definition, they cannot be controlled by humans. Some of these things – hurricanes, etc. – might well be caused by human activity, but does climate change actually affect volcanos?
I thought the guy in the red shirt was Chris Christie.
If I patted some little child on the head and said, “You don’t have to do this because you’re black, born stupid, and will never get better” I’d not only get fired, but I’d be drawn and quartered. And yet, Blacks say this and we all kowtow to them. What is wrong with people?!
When I was working full time things got really bad around her. I told Hubby I needed “professional help”, so we had somebody come in and clean the downstairs once a week.
Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
This country was never richer or more prosperous than during the late 50s and early 60s. Businesses were booming, and jobs were plentiful, and paid well. You could actually survive on minimum wage; no wild parties or vacations in Hawaii, but you could find an apartment and put groceries on the table, but most companies offered more than the minimum.
Is there a difference?
I don’t understand the philosophy of laying off a half dozen worker bees, (emphasis on “worker”) rather than one over-paid exec. Reminds me of a cartoon of a galley with six or seven men in suits on the top deck, watching a lone, scrawny oarsman below. “We’ve offered him all sorts of incentives – a new oar, a fresh uniform – but he refuses to work any harder. Show we fire him, too?”
