Oct 4th 2010 2:07PM I still support this father. The parents of these bullies are to blame, not the bus driver nor the teachers. The parents are responsible for raising their own children. I recall an incident where the children were so bad on a bus until the principal of the school suspended the bus for 3 days. Guess what? The parents jumped on the principal and failed to correct their bad children's bad behaviors. Bullies get their behavior from the bulling parents.
Sep 19th 2010 10:32PM I support this father. The school system is failing him and his child. The bullies should be suspended from the school system. The bullies' parents should be brought into the picture - disciplined,fined, imprisoned, forced to furnish private transportation to school systems outside their present jurisdiction so that they will have to pay tuition. The parents of these bullies can and should stop the bullies. The teachers should be given authority to suspend any bullies. Their job is to teach and not try to train these bullies [idiots] that these bully parents are half-raising. I am a parent with thoughtful, respectful well-raised grown children. As my children were growing up they volunteered at nursing homes, hospitals and centers housing handicapped children. This was done so that they would have contact with all manner of people and show respect. I thank God for my children and the fact that they were and are not bullies but contributing adults to society. Yes, they are African Americans. I am mad about the bullying. It has to stop. I was bullied over 50 years ago and took physical means to stop it at age 11. It worked, but no child should have to go through bullying. Parents of bullies can stop the bullying. It's their responsibility.
Jun 20th 2009 5:18AM I am sorry that people are losing jobs, homes, etc. but I am glad that people are able to purchase houses so cheaply and apply 'sweat equity' to make them into homes. Traditionally, here in the USA we purchase homes for $60,000 with a 30-year fixed mortgage and at the end of the 30 years we have paid out almost $200,000 in house payments. Purchase a $60,000 car with a 6 year note and do not pay nearly as much. I thank God for stopping this rip off of the consumers. Everyone needs somewhere to stay - wish I knew a homeless family that I could give a dollar to so that they could purchase a home.
