JJJS: Happiness trumps reality.

THANK YOU Carl, for bringing awareness to this very important issue. Westboro Baptist is not aRead More danger to anyone, truly. The mentality of Rick Warren and Saddleback Church, however, IS a danger. He puts a "pretty face" on the infliction of harm on people created in God's image. The sad thing is that many good people of Orange County and even around the world have put their faith in this man who inflicts so much harm on the LGBTQ community. Just ask the LGBTQ people in Uganda and Russia. A brother to Franklin Graham; a shame to Billy Graham.

After reading all that I could see someone who doesn't go from point A to point B without takingRead More sidetrips to point C, D, and Y a few times. Don't take that wrong- its more interesting that way.

Unfortunately Parent skills are not taugt in the high schools of this land. Unrealistically weRead More expect humans to have a sixth sense as to how best to raise their offspring. That does not happen. Too many parents use corporal punishment in the belief that they are helping their children. Some abuse terribly there kids both verbally and physically. But we leave them to their own devices and expect them to instinctively know. In L.A. the Latino's are now in the majority with many having no English language skills, which is needed when you are going to be of help in your childrens education. So stop the self serving baloney in which you easily pass off the responsibility to those who cannot fight back- that is to say the uneducated themselves parents. If you sincerely want parental help, and I see no evidence of that, then lobby and shout for Parenting classes and adult education, for the children's sake.

Parent Skill Number 1: Don't send your kids to poor performing schools (because poor performingRead More peers/students) like what are in most of the LAUSD.

The layout of the grammer school makes a difference in what the child is exposed to and learns.Read More That sounds inconceivable but whan they made the decision to put the children is separate bungalows with just one teacher all day it meant that they would not be exposed to specialist teachers such as literature, art, and music appreciation until they get to Jr. High School. I grew up during the great depression. Most assuredly there was no excess money for education, yet we had a gym teacher, we received instructions in drawing and painting, and we listened to classical records in our one day a week music class - because we walked to the specialist teachers classroom. Getting instruction in the humanities costs no more than sitting all day with the same teacher. It is the number of classroom hours spent per week that counts. The Superintendant does not have to hire more teachers, he hires specialists who excite and stimulate the kids in the subject that they themselves love so much. When the child gets a singlr teacheer who teaches math, English, history, etc. that teacher is bound to not be too good at some of the myriad subjects. If we could expose kids tothe very best at the hight of the depression we can do better by them than to have them sit on their behinds all day with someone who is a master of some and a bore at all.

Thanks Mimi...actually I'm usually told I'm as unprofessional as can be. But have your people callRead More my people, and their people call their people and pretty soon the word people just sounds weird.... And Lisa, get your head out of the toilet, please. But yeah...it's "E"

I also noticed that you didn't say how you would have voted for HR 3824. Would you have voted to help out the long term unemployed?

I wouldn't live in any other country, but it is incredibly immature and ignorant to not realize thatRead More we have a laundry list of things to improve. Blind faith and devotion with that "we are #1" attitude without rational thought might be what all governments (and religions) would like to have, but as far as being a citizen and member of humanity goes it is your duty to use your brain....
Just Tim April 19, 2014 at 11:11 am
Jeffe", the reason I pointed out that we are leading in most categories is simple. We actuallyRead More put our dirty laundry right out in the open. No other country is willing or in some cases allowed to do that. In some places, they aren't even allowed to think about doing that. I do agree with most of your laundry list, but compared to any other place, it ain't all bad. That my friend is using our brains. Which also means at times using our brawn to protect us from those who use their brain for less good.

Thanks Carl. Great article. Since it hasn't been mentioned here, i thought i'd muddy the waters aRead More bit by mentioning how prohibition empowers organized crime ….. cheers!

great review. Glad you enjoyed it so much. I'm watching it at the moment on DVD, and while it isRead More quite amusing, i don't think I'm going to like it as much as 'Hay Fever' or 'private Lives'.
Victoria Ordin April 13, 2014 at 08:34 am
I must see Hay Fever. Private Lives great! Curious to see the film version now :)
