“The Republicans only have one tool in their kit - a hammer. If they had been more strategic about their campaign to obstruct the processes of government in order to bring about Obama's demise, most of America would probably be on the fence right now about whether Obama is being sandbagged or just ineffectual. But GOP lawmakers blocked Obama's nominations even before knowing the first thing about them. And behind a veil of secrecy and cowardice. Heh heh...they threatened to block nominations like Chuck Hagel's. We're all tired of the colicky baby that the GOP has become.”

“Yes. Cruelty is upsetting in and of itself, but when someone doesn't even register that she's being cruel, like Ms. Snell here, it really gives you pause.”

“We are all so excited about putting our kids in STEM courses that we have ignored the fact that there is a shortage of qualified teachers for them. Because teachers in these subjects are not very proficient, they structure their courses so that THEY are not challenged in their subjects. As long as kids hand in the homework, they pass the classes. Every school offers Advanced Placement courses for students who really have an aptitude for STEM studies and need them to get into the colleges they want to attend. So schools recognize that there are math classes and then there are math classes. What if instead of being rubber stamped as educated in Algebra II, kids could get a thorough education in Literature or Speech or any other subject for which teacher competency is high? At least until something can be done to cultivate good STEM teachers. It might surprise people to know that there is a Federal requirement that core subjects be taught by "Highly Qualified Teachers" or HQTs. The Federal definition of an HQT is: Holds a bachelors degree and has a teaching certificate. It's what most of us consider the basic requirement. And most public schools in the US can't fully meet the Federal requirement for HQTs at any grade level.”

“Not for nuthin, but in the state where I live, 125,000 reports of child abuse are phoned in to the authorities each year. Of those, 38,000 are investigated (authorities go to the home). Of those, 4,000 children are "rescued," which means they are taken out of the abusive environment and channeled through a bureaucratic one characterized by indifference. Now, I want to see all God's creatures treated well, but I'm thinking a more tenacious response to human abuse may be possible if the authorities make a less tenacious response to puppy abuse. And here's why: Because Snell and Engel could have had a heap of bagged up puppies in their house when the police got there and the result would be exactly the same as had the police simply mailed them a summons: They would pay a fine.”

Andrea J Petro on Nov 24, 2013 at 11:06:06

“Agree on the child abuse part very upsetting. We as a country need to to more to protect the children as they are our future. The police like I said before were sent to check the puppy and most likely the rest of the litter. Many times people like this also have children unfortunatly and they are also being abused in some way. Either way it is all upsetting.”

“I get it. A law of some kind was broken. Police were alerted. They had to respond because that's their job. I just can't help thinking the response could have been MAILED to Snell and Engel.”

“I would think that the police would want to investigate and make sure the home was safe for any other pets. Thats probably why they didnt mail the summons. :)”

“Well...if we just used our computers to absorb information supplied by our computers, would we need computers? They are a great depository of information, but more than that, they tell us what is going on at the moment, what you're thinking wherever you are, and that's inciting me to do this...This is a revolution at my fingertips. That you and I can talk like this is more power than individuals have ever had.”

“This is bad luck or bad timing of epic proportions for the Republicans. What a coup it would have been had they been able to extend the shutdown until the roll-out? The media frenzy would have been intense, the public would have been ready to take to the streets, and in the midst of that, a sloppy roll out could have been shaped by the Republicans into an apocalyptic event that the media would ride like a pony in and Easter parade. But now. Now the government is open. By January the exchanges will be delivering what they promised - cheaper, better, healthcare - and the Republicans will be staring at 11 long months without an issue. They climaxed prematurely here.”

“I don't see anything here that's unusual. We went into two wars with plans laid and outcomes mapped, then realized, oops! We don't even have body armor for our troops or cultural experts who can interpret for us. But we fixed that within 3 to 5 years, and now ceaselessly hum along with our wars. We've had natural disasters that laid waste to whole cities and ecosystems and FEMA , the Coast Guard, and the Corps of Engineers charge in then, oops! Realize they haven't coordinated with localities so don't really know what form of help they're there to deliver, or how to get best value out of the dribbles of money that Congress approves for relief, so they provide traffic management and hazardous temporary housing that only the desperate would move into. Just about the only thing that's been implemented to perfection these past 15 years is voter suppression. No problem implementing that among various states across various municipalities.”
