My child went to Boulder county public school and she and all her friends are smart as can be. They all have great lives now. I took an interest and other parents did also.
And what is this about 'lounge chair boaters'? Jesus you got some kind of attitude. You hate the government you hate the schools and you hate boaters that don't measure up to you standards? Get a life.
(do not respond do not respond do not respond.........NUTS)
I didn't hear him say he hates government or the schools; he has issues, but hate? Nope. Strong opinion? Yep. That's a problem for you?
And just to be clear about government "handouts"; If we're paying taxes, it is not a handout. It. is. not. a. handout.
I agree with you, living in the US is a privilege, including the freedom (and responsibility) to voice an opinion sometimes. Or act, as the situation calls for.
Give credit where due, including rangers, first responders, military and educators. Doesn't mean all of them are sacrificing angels, like Kelly, nor does it mean the agencies we pay for work as designed consistently.
Ease up a bit there; if you want to continue this discussion I'd suggest you take it to the Eddy; no need to clutter up an other wise fine thread.
