+10I don't like the word "lit" Everyone's now like "Thats LIT!!" but when I was in high school lit just meant you were really high. More
There's a boy named Carol. He's made fun of throughout high school because of his weird name, and so he's become very shy. But he has a crush on a girl and works up the courage to ask her out. She says yes, and he's so happy. After years of dating, he works up the courage to ask her to marry him. She says yes, and he's so happy. When their first child is born, a girl, he lets the wife name her, because he still feels so lucky and fortunate just to be with her. The wife names the baby "Love". Love grows up and now she starts to be made fun of because of her weird name. She comes home from school one day screaming at her dad, asking why he gave her such a stupid name. He takes blame, wanting to protect his wife, and apologizes. Love says he ruined her life. She shoots him and runs away. Finally the wife comes home, sees Carol lying on the ground, screams and runs to him. "Carol! What happened?!" He beckons her to come closer, and with his dying breath he whispers in her ear: "Shot through the heart. And you're to blame. Darling you gave Love a bad name."
Have you ever noticed that people rarely ask questions or express opinions outside their fan base? Seriously, is this still the school cafeteria? So here’s the question; do members ask questions to hear an echo or do you think they want a variety of answers that may be different from what they are comfortable with? Be honest. I avoid certain posts and people too, but I can admit it.
+23Who else is disgusted at the “news”? We don’t get news anymore. The news, has been replaced by 99% political commentary. There is so much going on out there in the world that we don’t hear anything about. We may get a 10 second blurb now and then, and then, nothing. More

+16When I was a child we had duck-and-cover drills in school because there was a weapon that had proliferated out of control and threatened the American way of life. Today's kids have Active-Shooter drills.
Is it right for teachers, schools and the media to use children who are supposed to be in class, to promote their political agendas? More
+25It doesn’t matter if you are liberal or conservative. One thing we all hate, are telemarketers and phone scams. More
+5Students who participate in the National School Walkout Day should be subject to the discipline the school currently uses for 'skipped' classes. Nothing less, and nothing more. To encourage participation by not punishing these kids or to discourage participation by applying harsher penalties only exposes the school to risk of litigation. Do not politicize our schools.

Misbehaving at School ? Summer vacation was over and Little Johnny returned back to school. Only two days later his teacher phoned his mother to tell her that he was misbehaving. "Wait just a minute," she said. "I had Johnny with me for three months and I never called you once when he misbehaved! Couldn't you show me the same courtesy?"
