The ethics of Huntsville City Schools (HCS) smell to high heaven.
Airing now just hours before the August 23 election is the ad at the link below, disguised as a public service announcement. It’s an electioneering communication paid for with taxpayer money, approved by the Board of Education of which McCaulley is president and a candidate for re-election, an ad in which she is featured prominently.
The ads have been out for a while, it’s not illegal… It’s stupid.
The real question is “Why is Huntsville running ads in the school system? Are the parents able to leave?”
Are the cops going to be arresting kids for being jerks to each other?
Over the weekend, a flurry of posts about students at his school prompted his own post on Facebook.
“I told parents, if you get wind of these or you see these, you’re probably going to want to press charges,” Casteel explained.
This is not the role of law enforcement.
The principal said his school, as well as other schools in the Colbert County system, are actively patrolling social media. They want to be more proactive in the fight against cyber-bullying.
“If the kids aren’t safe, then they are not going to learn,” Casteel stated. “So we thought, hey, we want to make sure we can ensure the safety of the children and that’s the reason why we said we are going to get out ahead of this before anything gets out of hand.”
Casteel said there are positive ways to use social media and points to the schools own Facebook page. But degrading and talking about others in a school environment is over, and abusers will face the consequences.
Casteel said no charges have been filed against students as of yet. Violators of cyber-bullying could face suspension or expulsion as well as criminal charges.
I have no problem with the school monitoring the kids’ public Facebook pages but we will never see people pressing charges for “bullying”.
This principle is an idiot.
Is Donald Trump lurching towards amnesty?
One of the reasons that so many people underestimated the possibility of Donald Trump’s rise in the Republican Party is that we zeroed in on his policy proposals and actually took them seriously. If you remember, during the primary debates there was a lot of ink spilled on the nuanced differences between Rubio, Cruz and Trump on illegal immigrants. None of that ever mattered. What Trump was communicating to his supporters didn’t have anything to do with all of that. His message has always been emotional – not thoughtful or logical.
That’s what makes the comments by Rep. Chris Collins – the first member of Congress to endorse Trump – so fascinating.
The first member of Congress to endorse Donald Trump for president doesn’t envision one of Trump’s main campaign promises – a wall at the Mexican border – ever becoming a reality that stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico.
“I have called it a virtual wall,” Rep. Chris Collins said in an interview with The Buffalo News.
“Maybe we will be building a wall over some aspects of it; I don’t know,” the Clarence Republican said of Trump’s proposed barrier to keep illegal immigrants and drugs from crossing the southern border.
Collins, who has become one of the presumptive GOP nominee’s main media surrogates, also cast doubts on another central Trump campaign promise: the candidate’s vow to deport the nation’s 12 million undocumented immigrants.
“I call it a rhetorical deportation of 12 million people,” Collins said.
He then gestured toward a door in his Capitol Hill office.
“They go out that door, they go in that room, they get their work papers, Social Security number, then they come in that door, and they’ve got legal work status but are not citizens of the United States,” Collins said. “So there was a virtual deportation as they left that door for processing and came in this door.”
Collins added: “We’re not going to put them on a bus, and we’re not going to drive them across the border.”
Collins went on to say that Trump wouldn’t necessarily agree with this interpretation of his proposals. In other words, they are Collins’ way of adapting what Trump actually said in a way that allows him to support the candidate. I wonder if anyone finds that as interesting as I do. I suspect that it is pretty common in campaigns that are fueled primarily by emotions rather than workable policies. In other words, it is rampant in the world of post-policy Republicans.
The media loves to paint Trump as a racist…
- Why do you think either of these candidates gives a damn about you?
- Was Trump ever called racist before he became the GOP nominee?
Surprise 15,000 more e-mails founds…
More surprise, donors sought and received special favors…
The worst defense of Hillary Clinton I could find…
POLLING. BLOOD. BATH.
CNN on Friday updated their election forecast, moving three states previously classified as toss-ups into the leaning-Democrat column: New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
All three of those states went into Barack Obama’s column in both the 2008 and 2012 elections.
Under the news network’s projections, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton needs only to sweep all the states CNN presently considers leaning or solidly Democratic to win the presidency with 273 electoral votes, three more than the majority of 270.
Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio and North Carolina are the five remaining “battlegrounds,” the first four of which Mr. Obama won in 2012. North Carolina narrowly went for Republican businessman and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with 50.6 percent of the vote.
CNN’s projection comes on the heels of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s resignation and one day after the Trump campaign announced its first TV ad buy of the general election, a $4.8 million ad buy for the rest of August targeting Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
Lottery is up today…
Some senators ARE NOT happy…
It’s a terror attack…
Gawker is not a victim…
