    Should Homework Be Banned?

    I'm a teacher. I say NO HOMEWORK! Sometimes a kid can't get help from a parent, sometimes kids have other responsibilities, sometimes the kid's parents may not speak English, or...too often...a kid ALREADY KNOWS how to do it, so the homework is a waste of time! Some exceptions: Foreign...

    Secure Communities deportation program will expand to New York and Mass.,

    Um, a court finds you guilty. Not a police officer. So you can get arrested for something and it can be dropped later.

    Arizona Secretary of State Wants to See Obama's Birth Certificate

    Obama has already released it. More than once. So maybe Hawaii should ask the Arizona Secretary of State for his birth certificate.

    Do you believe in grounding your child/children?

    Sure. He gets his Wii taken away or his computer or some such. I don't know if it "works", but it's my primary method of parenting punishment. I mean, I don't hit him, so I have to have a Nuclear Option somewhere. :) If he does something that's Really Out of Line, he loses all electronics...

    I'm on a quest to get married.

    How am I 'using' anyone if I'm up front and honest about it? There's no deceit here.

    It doesn't mean it's affordable. Plus...it hasn't gone into effect.

    School for the Deaf denies deaf child with Down Syndrome placement

    Probably isn't going to be served well elsewhere, either. If she were at a school for the Deaf, she'd probably qualify to get a para for her to be there at all times. The state pays for that.

    School for the Deaf denies deaf child with Down Syndrome placement

    It's likely that the deaf autistic girl would suffer in a non-deaf setting. :/ I worked with autistic kids in a supposed 'awesome' school. Dude, suckage. One of the kids (not autistic, but MR) was deaf and his mom hated the school so much she fought to have him pulled out.

    I'm on a quest to get married.

    Thank you. I'm not doing it to scam a person. I mean, people get married for green cards, money, religion, whatever. Why not? This is a country that doesn't have health care! WTF! It shouldn't HAVE to be this way. *Sigh* I'm likely to be subbing this year. :( If so, I won't be able to pay the...

    I'm on a quest to get married.

    Taking advantage? I think my DAD takes advantage of women. How about you taking advantage of the government? Maybe if I were deaf enough I could be like you and get $$$ and travel to Europe on the taxpayer's dollar... Thank you. XO. <3 I don't qualify. I have epilepsy. I can't get...

    I'm on a quest to get married.

    I have been, but I don't have any Prada. Do you want to buy my shoes? I give you AD special, ok? My son has a scholarship...as for my dad, it would be NICE if he wanted to give me loads of cash cause I batted my eyelashes, but he doesn't do that. I have to pay for my own stuff around here...

    I tried. :/ *sigh* If I have to. This is why you get married to be nice to a friend...not for love. ;)

    Grammar

    Deafies can be grammarians as well. They look down on people who have 'bad' ASL. The difference is that the written word is a mark of education. Also, sometimes bad grammar helps me out on the internet, eg, when I say something like as it can show my tone and suggest what it sounds like out...

    I'm on a quest to get married.

    Uh...it would be too expensive, plus it doesn't cover me properly. I have epilepsy. Also, I'm not planning on attending full time this year. (Graduate student...)

    I'm on a quest to get married.

    Yeah, but then I'd be living in the streets. I can't afford to move! I don't even have employment right now. :( And I'm rooted here. Stupid Colorado budget cuts. *grumbles* If I don't date poor men, I don't see how wanting to marry one with health insurance is that far off. I'm hoping one of...
