Is it just my blog?
I have the hardest time trying to keeping people on subject. I know a lot of it has got to do with the subject matter I choose to write about. I also know that VicCad offers a lot more in variety ,when it comes to posters because I don't seem to have a problem with this personal blog.
I was really interested in how people felt about getting corporal punishment removed from our schools but the subject immediately went to parental corporal punishment. No one mentioned the 220,000 children that were admitted to the hospital because of corporal punishment in schools. I saw where maryann said we had over 40 school districts that were still using corporal punishment.She said we had a long way to go. I wanted to respond and ask her to look at my blog where I mentioned that we don't have to take it district by district because we could do it in one clean swoop by writing our legislators,telling them to repeal the act. I didn't get a chance to because people were engaged in parental corporal punishment.
I'm still confused about the reason for our engagement in Libya but so far only arlewill has made a comment that had nothing to do with common sound bites like “tar baby, and policemen of the world” but I guess that's my fault because I titled the blog “ Mission Creep?” If I choose economics,it usually goes to left,right,liberal,conservative argument and I’d be a fool to think politics would be any different. I’m always amazed when someone excepts me to write a balanced view. If I saw a balanced view, then I would write it that way, but I don’t have an obligation to do that, if I don't really believe it. Sometimes, events, don't have two sides to it. One side may be blatantly wrong, of course that's never my side…:-)
Rebecca unknowingly gave me a great idea the other day on how to stay on one of my Lenten promises of remaining civil at VicAd and still have the ability to vent. I will continue to use this personal blog to express my true feelings,so if you think I let someone off the hook or I was being too passive,come over here and I will tell you what I really think…I feel so much better now and I’m ready to be a much kinder and gentler poster when I ‘m responding to posters on ViCad. It’s going to be a long 20 plus days.
It's kinda hard picking sides between those that want the $24,000 to go to the booster club and those that agree with the school's decision. On one hand it reeks of commercialism but on the other hand schools have to find new scources of income. I wouldn't mind if it beneifited all the students like a new classroom,computers,or teaching enhancements but a booster club!....The new computers or classroom could bear the company's name but no student involement or the commercial use of school property....I don't think it has to be equally divided because each school could solicit their own sponser or do I really believe that?...I'm stuck,someone help me out.
