Thursday’s Tidbits

16 02 2012

LOCAL AND REGIONAL

*  I despise Kansas, but not that much, and certainly not as much as one Mykel Dantae Karlyle.

NATIONAL

The doers are probably graduates of a school so named.

*  What does corrupution in the CPD look like?  Well, you know.

As a result…

Philly eighth grader whacks his teacher.  The President of the PFT blames cutbacks in support staff, i.e. fewer PFT union members.

Funny, when I went to middle and high school, I don’t remember there being way too much in the way of support staff, and not once did I see an on-duty uniformed cop at school.  (There were off duty suit-and-tie cops who came for various assemblies).  For some reason, I don’t remember students whacking teachers.

*  Lesson learned:  The bottom 80% need to start paying their fair share.

D.C. gentrification is not resulting in an enrollment surge in the DCPS.

No shit, sherlock.  The yuppies that aren’t childless send their children to private schools.

Krispy Christie orders flags in NJ to fly at half staff.  I’m guessing someone from New Jersey did something heroic and died in the process or some time later.

We now literally have the food police.

I’m not surprised this happened in NC, and that the food police in question are NC state agents.  Beverly Perdue (Obamabot) is the Governor, so she would poodle along with any Obama fad.

Ironically, the school’s lunch was probably less healthy than the one her parents packed.

Still think I’m kidding when I say that Islam is the official religion of American public education?

INTERNATIONAL

*  “There are lots of drugs in Mexico.  But for some reason, people are still going.”

Need me to spell it out for you, Captain Oblivious?

THE SPORTS PAGE

Athletes and marriage proposals have been in the news lately, so here’s one that suits me a lot better.

She pretty much had to say yes, seeing as her boyfriend was half naked while on bended knee.

Tort litigation over concussions could kill football, so goes this theory.

I doubt it.  Football is one of the lynch pins of Black Run America, and also the opiate of the American white man, especially the southern white man.  TPTB aren’t going to let it die so easily, no sooner than the Emperor would have cancelled the chariot races.

I do think that football should take a season off while we do a collective catharsis of crimes committeed by and against football players, and also our collective ignorance of the same, prostrating ourselves to that cult.

Thanks for sharing, Steven.

We need a better running back.  How about that?

The headline is:  “Behind the locker room doors before and after Lin’s game-winning shot against the Raptors.”

The byline is:  Holly MacKenzie.

Why are we still allowing that?

Then again, in light of recent news, there are a lot of men that shouldn’t be allowed in locker rooms, either.

Don’t be fooled.  It’s easy to take a quick glance at this article and think that the students voluntarily forfeited.  Wrong — It was the school, and the students are protesting.

It’s probably the first time in their lives when some adult in a position of authority over the public schools they attend have transmitted the message that there is a purpose to public education other than team sports.

Mykel Dantae Karlyle ….. is a good kid.

GTA: Obama Way — LOL I thought it was in the game.

The footage of the two cops running from the TV cameras is classic.

The only reason the doors on my high school were locked was to keep us from being able to slip out to smoke.

The bottom 80% need to start paying their fair share. There should be no negative payers. End the EITC.

Krispy Christie orders flags in NJ to fly at half staff. Must not diss crackheads.

We now literally have the food police. Thank you, Ya’Hyness Obaminette.

Tort litigation over concussions could kill football, so goes this theory. Won’t kill it, just severely cripple it. And you and I will end up footing the bill through TIFFs and other tax breaks to the owners.

Holly MacKenzie is a lover of all things basketball, especially rookies and underdogs. I think I want to vomit.

It’s probably the first time in their lives when some adult in a position of authority over the public schools they attend have transmitted the message that there is a purpose to public education other than team sports.

My sister and I were discussing “Friday Night Lights” and she told me that they really do have fulltime football coaches at some public high schools in Texas, which is ridulous. High school sports should not be a business.

Regarding “Friday Night Lights”, at one time I thought Connie Britton was probably the most beautiful woman on TV, then I read this: (from Wiki) In November 2011, she adopted a son, Eyob “Yoby” Britton, from Ethiopia.

I’m sure when GTA: St. Louis comes out, you’ll be able to get extra points for stealing an Escalade on a City street named after a local Reverend.

What gets me about EITC is that the people who get it can run around claiming to be “taxpayers,” but then they actually pay a negative income tax, plus all the benefits they and their children get. Also, one need not be an 18+ with dependent children any longer to get EITC.

Some Texas high schools not only have full time full salary head football coaches, but also some assistants. In fact, the bigger high schools have a full football coaching staff and facilities and budget and stadia and separate practice fields comparable to most small colleges’ football programs.
