“Exactly and if it is then the administration lets it happen. The elementary teacher really has to work their butt off if they want to do their job and I am talking from preschool to 4th grade. Now I have seen teachers who did nothing and got a paycheck. The computer teacher let the kids just play games or hung out in the teachers room next door. The PE teacher let them play outside when weather permitted and in the gym let them run or have free time. So these are just an example. Now I learn that since they started on block schedules the high school teachers have two and three hours of doing nothing. I know this because of a friend who subs and she sat and read because she was so bored, but preferred that to having students. Then the elementary teacher was lucky to get 30 min a day to try to get things done in the classroom and this was often taken away for one thing or another. The thirty min was when the students were in music, library, p.e., or computer. I once bought a reading workbook that was never used, not once. So I am sure that any one in education has seen some of the same thing. If not then their eyes were closed. For the most part, everyone was doing there job.”

“There are a lot of teachers not "cut" out for the job. It requires a lot of patience working with children with behavior problems in the regular classroom setting alone.I think it is required that you have an assistant for a certain number of students in each of these classrooms to help with behavior. I have a friend who is a special needs teacher who does a great job though sometimes I can see she wants to just go home.But she also has several aides in the classroom with her.Now these students are required to be in the regular classroom for an hour and up during the day with an aide. This is a tremendous help. No child should be mistreated. Unless there are cameras in the room or the child is able to vocalize what is happening then you never can tell.”

“I love Indiana Jones movies, but I was disappointed in the last one too. Shia was absolutely not right for the part. He does do good movies when they are suited for him. That was only one thing and the premise the other. Trying to have another IJ movie and even think of having Harrison Ford in it is not a good idea. He was perfect when he was young and so were the movies. So let them go out with some dignity. Only thing I could think of to ever having another IJ movie is to have a young boy IJones. Other than that, R.I.P Indiana JOnes.”

“and if all of that is not enough changes, when we do not have a hard freeze during the winter, where I live, the the insects in the summer are horrible. We seem to be having less of these types of winters. If you live in the south, you may find that even with application of stuff you put on your pets still doesn't emliminate the fleas completely, but lots better than without it. If you have ever walked through grasses you just may find that besides ticks, you have picked up something worse. Chiggers. They will make you itch insanely.There are a lot of insects that are very troublesome and then those that are helpful. It seems like our weather is changing, whether by global warming or some more things Hotter and drier in some places and wet in other areas. Either way, it is alarming to me.”

“Now we can see how an individual can become an ultra millionaire which leads to a billionaire. How can a company justify this when they think giving a quarter raise or time and a half is going to break them. I do not see where these people are working for their money. If you hire someone for a day with that salary and then let them go the next day, then what happens to the person who hired them in the first place? Something does not seem kosher to me. And I do not need to see the blah, blah, blah, of people who say people got their fortune by hard work. Those who have I applaud them. But not all earn their money as with this Best Buy story and it is only one.”

“I recently discovered pinterest. Now if I understand this right, most of the people find something they like on another site and pin it to the board (which I do not know how to do even if I decided to) and it does not have to be something original. It can even be a site which sells something. The more things a person pins then ???? I gues they just do this for fun. Or do they scan something and put it on? I do like looking at it. I notice when you scroll back up, it takes you to another section. Guess I will copy down some of the pinterests listed. doubt if I will get through all 72. I also noticed when my computer said some of the pins could be malicious sites.”

“I love salt and always have. It makes things taste better. I have cut way back by not adding it to things I previously did and don't miss it. I think my parents, who put salt on everything, is the reason I did. Now I know better and try to do better. I notice since I cut back, it has made salt more noticeable in food products. Same thing with sugar. I am no longer addicted to it. I also failed the above test. If you watch the Chew, have you ever noticed how much salt they put in everything? Alas one more thing to pay attention to when I buy something.”

“We could have gun control, but who is going to control it when it comes to gangs, drug dealers and such.They can always get guns and plenty of them. They are well armed. It would be harder to buy one from someone off the streets, so to speak, but it could be done unfortunately. Then there are people who own a gun and in a fit of anger kills someone else. There are all kinds of scenarios. But I shouldn't have my gun taken because of these people. It is my only form of protection if someone tries to break in my home. Then there are people who hunt too. Someone could do a lot of damage with a can of gas and a match or a virus which can be gotten too. There are less of them that are going to use these things as not. If the perpetrator lives, then we spend lots of money while they have a trial knowing they are guilty and then they end up in a mental ward.If I remember correctly, it was not too long ago where a man who was in the military shot some people.He was issued a gun. I wish there weren't people out there like this so I always felt safe”

“As all professions, there are always some bad apples. Trying to weed them out because of test scores is difficult because there is not fairness when putting children in classrooms. Some teachers end up with the cream of the crop while others get slower kids, kids with a bad homelife, those who constantly move from one state to another, etc. The teacher should not give the tests or at least be monitored as they give it. When they have kids that work at a slower pace or you have to be sure that they just mark an answer without reading or working a problem, then they should be place with someone who can have them read out loud to them before they answer a question. Just because these kids do not do well on a test does not mean they have not learned what they should have.”

“She should be suspended until the matter is cleared up. Most systems suspend without pay and the person involved is subject to losing their job when they recieve a DUI even before the case has gone to court. When allowed to go back they are told they will be keeping their eye on them. It amazes me that they have not done the same to this teacher.”

“if they can indeed sustain the allegations, yes she should. just remember kids of that age lie like there is no tomorrow. we run 2 daycare centers and have cameras in every room. i can't tell you how many times kids 3-12 yrs old come and say "johnny hit me" or bit me for no reason, or whatever the case is, or the teacher did something. we go back and look at the film of the event and find out they got hit cause they first hit the other child, or bit them etc. i'm not saying it happens all the time, but these kids lie regularly and sometimes you have to dig a bit for the truth. a teachers aid seeing it is one thing, but again if that aid doesn't like the teacher......THAT is the reason we put cameras in EVERY classroom. those that are doing their job have nothing to fear, those that don't go somewhere else. It took the "he said, she said" out of the equation along with parents endlessly blaming the center or a teacher for the "ghost" bump on their leg or arm. We also cleared our entire staff and many parents when one complained their purse was robbed on the property. If she indeed treated that special needs child in that manner, i have no sympathy for her and she should be banned from ever working with children again, once she gets out of prison.”

“No matter who wins, I do not see this happening until new laws are made and enforced. To hell with the freedom of speech when it comes to this. Pornography with adults is one business. When it pertains to children, it is another one. This and any other assault to children should be a top priority now and federal. Peopel got satellite tv and all of a sudden it is in the home where anyone can see it if not monitored. It is in the stores so any one can see it not monitored. Use to be that you had adult theatres where you had to go to see them. This is the way it should be. I don't care what anyone else thinks, but this is what I do. We have been told where we can and can not smoke, how old we have to be to drink, how much soda we are allowed to buy at one time, and so on. I am not saying take porn away because it is what some adults want to do for a living and some people want to see. When it can be brought into the home, then the door is open for children to see it. This is where the problem lies.”

“Agreed, and that's where parental responsibility kicks in. Every cable and dish provider provides system code-key lockouts to give parents control over what their child sees. The internet does not come with such controls so you need to be more diligent there.

Parents, it is YOUR responsibility ultimately to keep your kids safe in every environment.”

Ingenuity.”

“Yeah-after they've had sex. I can not believe that people are actually buying into this. Although-most middle aged clientelle (like she said were her customers) would because they are expecting more. And is it not funny how (from studies I have read) that postitution clientelle are in the same age bracket and they are usually all married men. Wonder what these mens wives would think? Does she send them home to their wives? Doubtfull! At least not without her business transaction first.
The issue here now is her safety I think. I mean, one of these days she will come across a client that will not take no for an answer (assuming that she sais no and doesnt go further like she is trying to convince us). She may want to put camera's into the room where she "cuddles" just in case, with an alarm button plugged into an area only she knows about. There are many dangerous pervs out there willing to do anything to girls such as her. There are just as many people not willing to help either based on the knowledge of her business alone that she should take into account. Just saying that there are severe risks involved in this type of "business" especailly seeing as its in a bed.”
