“By disqualifying anyone with a modeling or similar past, how will this help us increase the number of people willing to be educators? It's difficult enough attracting them into the profession without resorting to this foolishness. Bottom line is, we all have checkered pasts in one way or another, but modeling shouldn't even be considered in that same realm. Pathetic.”

“For the trivia buffs out there.

The word S. H. I. T. is in fact an acronym once used on 15th and 6th century cargo ships. When manure was transported to British colonies, it was dried and formed into large bales. These bales were never stored in a ships hull. If water comes in contact with dried manure, methane gas is released. Just a scientific fact. Ships used to blow up, when someone went into the hold of a ship with a lantern after methane would build up. Thus dried manure bales were transported "above deck" along with a plaque which said:

S hip
H igh
I n
T ransport”

“So how many of those ships blew up, exactly?

“Hey Bruin Babe. I wonder where all the Habs fans are? I somewhat remember them rubbing it in our faces about the Bruins slow start. I wonder what changed? : )

Boston has a deep enough team to continue winning, but I'm with you, I hope Big Z comes back soon.”

HockeyGirl74 on Dec 15, 2011 at 14:51:36

“PC!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't seen you in forever! How have you been?

And if you are looking for those Habs "fans" to show up when the Bruins are winning, forget it. And now they can't even whine about Campbell. It's nice not to hear them crying for a little while though ;)

And Boston has a deep enough team for sure. As long as Timmy stays strong.and healthy.and.I would like to see Rask get some more wins....he's been looking better and better. Oh how I would LOVE back to back Cups!!!

“Do you really think that is funny? Why the elementary school level of humor? Are you so desperate for attention, you feel the need to repeat things a pre-adolescent would say, just to get a reaction? I do suppose, negative attention is still some sort of attention. What a pathetic life you must have. Now go ahead and tell me how you can beat me up in real life; This should be good.”

“And that's the whole point. This is why we are asking where is the rest of the tape, and who edited it? The segment shown most definitely damns the officer, so is this by design? I will not argue the officer used excessive force by just what we have seen, but wouldn't you like to know the WHOLE story?”

snitramc on Dec 14, 2011 at 19:05:04

“The WHOLE story is, a "grown up" man used excessive force against a 14 year old girl. That is it. I had a 14 year old daughter once. Now she is 23. I never would have been afraid of her, under any circumstance. You can try to obfuscate it as much as you want. This was an attack against a minor by an adult charged with protecting innocent children. As far as I am concerned, he is just as bad as Jerry Sandusky, and Tom Foley (R-family values).”

“I truly wonder if the prelude to this tazing was left out on purpose? No that couldn't be, because then we would actually get the whole story and not a set up for gross overreaction from the viewing public. If it turns out the girl was tazed for no reason, I will apologize. But "skeptical" is indeed the correct feeling.”

“"Closing the "gunshow loophole" would accomplish nothing in such a case as these sellers are already operating illegally."

Bingo! Perfectly stated. Apparently, we should pass a new law making it illegal to do anything illegal. That would definitely solve all our problems. F&F.”

The problem is for so many people, that talking starts out as yelling and goes downhill from there. But I completely agree with your overall synopsis.”
