    Every moment that goes by everything is changing. I don’t see that anyone is keeping their views to themselves. Considering what has happened in the US over the years I think this is a good thing. I am voting for the person with the most consistent behavior. The one who is a civilized person. The label democrat or republican means nothing to me. Anyone who wants war is absolutely out.

      Just remember that generally the guys who get us into lengthy wars are the ones who are indecisive about addressing foreign aggressiveness when it is easy to address.

    This blog just confirms that we are more divided than ever and refuse to respect other points of view or look for common ground. The political parties, politicians and entrenched government employees are the only winners. They have us exactly where they want us. Our own biases are causing us to support people who care only about personal power, their government salaries and pensions, and what they can squeeze out of special interests like the NRA and the healthcare, banking, and defense industries. Putin is laughing his ass off. If WWIII happens anytime soon, we’re f***** because we our manufacturing capabilities and workforce have been decimated and we have insulted and abandoned our allies. We will get what we deserve.

    HERE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE RESULTS OR ACCOUNTABILITY OF THE EPISD’S “ACTIVE LEARNING” MODEL
    IT LOOKS LIKE THEY SUBSTITUTED RECESS FOR SOCIAL STUDIES. I GUESS THAT IS WHAT THE “ACTIVE” MIGHT
    REPRESENT.

    Maybe students aren’t learning because teachers aren’t teaching?

    I fail to see any justification for teachers constantly whining about being underpaid. They should be fired for consistently producing poor results.
