Rant and Rave for 12/18/12

— — — —  

An expense

“Adding bathrooms to the walking trail? Do you realize that this is an expense and our nation is in a severe economic state? Maybe you should walk closer to your house."

Security issue

“After the terrible events of Friday, December 14th, all anyone is talking about from the media is gun control. Do we really believe that crazies and criminals will abide by the law?  I mean this monster killed 26 innocent people!  I think we need to look at better security measures at our area schools.

I know this won't prevent all the shootings, but we have an obligation to protect our children!  Please relook at security.  I know of three schools which front doors are never locked. My son attends one of them.  May God Bless the families and the whole community of Newtown CT."

Ride a bus

“In response: The drivers I have spoken to have stated they stopped driving, not because of the pay but because of the spoiled, selfish, rotten, perfect children they have to carry. Most drive mainly for the health insurance. Kids today have no respect. Don’t agree? Ride a bus for a week."

Choices

“How did the ‘bad’ students become demotivated? Have you ever seen a demotivated 2 -year-old? All 2-year- olds are passionate about learning!

At some point, somebody turned that off. Maybe it was a parent or a teacher whose heavy discipline told the child that exploring would get them hurt.

It takes different styles for different people, and that's why we need choices."

Walking Trail

“Heart disease kills more people than thugs jumping out of bathrooms. The walking trail should be a comfortable place to get out and move around."

Can't lock the door

“I teach at one of our elementary schools. I cannot lock my classroom from the inside. We have never had keys. Most of our doors that open to the playground are always unlocked.

Anyone that wanted to, can enter this school. Dr. DePaul...please look into this, before something like the Connecticut tragedy happens here."

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
