May 12th 2010 4:05PM Yes she is human, but sometimes people do stupid things bevause they are just stupid, or maybe selfish. Take a look at this doosy.
Fifty-year-old Connecticut girl scout leader Theresa Tracy was arrested on Tuesday May 11 for drunk driving. Ms. Tracy who's blood alcohol level was reported at almost four times the legal limit was traveling with four girl scouts...
May 7th 2010 2:56AM Christians did not attack Elton John, he insulted them. Even stars should know when to keep their mouths shut...
May 3rd 2010 9:57PM Ramona, It is one thing to be proud of one’s child, gifted or otherwise, and quite another to write paragraphs on a comment page detailing all of the child’s achievements. One commenter actually pointed out that her young child had corrected her grammar. It what universe is this acceptable? Being gifted does not mean being special, or being treated any differently. It simply is what it is!
One parent even suggests that these “gifts from God” are deserving of special treatment due to their higher level of intellect… Have you ever heard of Joseph James? No? He is your garbage man. What are you going to do when he stops showing up? You see, this man is necessary. My point is that it is about application and usability of one’s knowledge that counts. Many brilliant minds have been wasted as the result of elitist thinking. Perhaps you need to step outside of your comfort zone.
As far as using an anonymous title, the internet can be a dangerous place. Perhaps my name is one that would be recognized… This is my prerogative as well as everyone else’s.
May 3rd 2010 4:01PM Wow the lack of manners, evidenced by the bragging on this comment page is actually embarrassing! Labels are great…on pickle jars. Some here actually believe that they have “raised four gifted children”… C’mon, do people know what gifted is? Sorry, but it does not work this way! All ya’ll need now is the book on etiquette!
May 3rd 2010 1:54PM The cognitive growth of children on the autistic spectrum is generally normal to above average. In fact many of these young individuals are quite gifted. Look up Dr Temple Grandin. The woman is a true genius! (and autistic)
May 3rd 2010 1:38PM What an obnoxious display of pretentious garbage. Yes, my child is gifted as well, but who wants to hear me brag about this? Not even me! Great your child is bright, now teach them to be good.
Children correcting an adults grammar, etc, not at all pleasant! If your child does not realize that they are a child, you are doing something wrong, not to mention you are doing them a disservice. It’s like George Carlin says, “My child did not lose, he was the last winner”. C’mon, grow up!
May 2nd 2010 11:25PM I recently watched an animated movie with my children. This particular line stuck with me, and I believe that it applies here. It is better to be a good nobody, than an evil somebody (I paraphrase).
Seriously, we all need money. It is a required tool in this current world. But it is sad that some folks will sell their beliefs in order to obtain more, and on the backs of others... Let's all start rewarding integrity and morals!
May 1st 2010 6:46PM Thay can ask me! I have nothing to hide! I do not feel offended. In fact, I will go so far as to say that I feel it to be my civic duty. Ask me to prove my citizenship, and I shall. Do these politicians believe that we do not know what it is like when visiting other countries? They will an do ask for your information as they please...
May 1st 2010 5:52PM Anyone who has immigrated to this country should be concerned about the protesters. Presumably those who have moved here from their homeland, have left their country of origin for a better life. If people are allowed to immigrate illegally, we may as well live in Mexico (or worse)! There has got to be a precedent. Make no mistake, The politicians, including Barak Obama, know this. For them, this about the November elections. Seemingly, they do not give a rat’s @ss about our quality of life. Enforce this law throughout the land! It is already the law!
This is not about racial profiling, but rather checking the legal rights of a person who is in the process of committing a crime. This is always done. Are you aware that people may be asked for their ID at any time by law officials? Vagrancy is not legal, heard of loitering? How do you suppose that this is determined? Protesters of this law either A) have a dog in the fight, or B) are not paying attention.
Everyone crossing the border illegally is not Mexican. Any country that does not secure it’s borders is doomed. All elected officials know this. So do all thinking human beings. Leaving the border open to illegal immigrants is leaving ourselves and our loved ones open to terrorist attacks! The time is NOW to put a stop to this, before it is too big.
May 1st 2010 3:28PM It is unbelievably ridiculous that anyone has a problem with this new law. This should already be being enforced. Mexicans are not the only ones who are crossing the boarders illegally... Remember 9/11? A repeat of that would leave the Hollywoods writing, producing, and singing a new "We are the world" song. It irritates the Sh*t out of me that people go about their lives half asleep...
