Have you ever done an expose on who is one the Cultural Commission, what they are paid and what they have spent?
"The bombers also win if, in our anger and fear, we start profiling classes of immigrant Americans."
We Americans lose if we fail to learn any lessons from this.
"..some politicians, debating immigration reform in Washington, are bringing the Boston Marathon bombings into the discussion."
Like discussing the Newtown tragedy in the discussion about gun control.
And shouldn't we talk, at last, about the relationship between our culture of violence and the violence that takes place in this country?
How about the culture of violence in Chechnya that the bombers brought with them?
"..narrative Warren's campaign is using is that of someone who will represent people who feel disenfranchised: like they don't have a voice in city government."
Like city residents who are Republicans
A fact missing from this account is that Rochester has more schools of education per capita than any other city in the country in an area with steady K-12 enrollment decline. And despite what Dr. Hursch thinks, many are diploma mills and have taken no responsibility for the lack of quality of their graduates' teaching. Another fact missing is that none of the private ed schools in Rochester were willing to submit data on their admissions in a national study on the quality of teacher prep programs. http://www.nctq.org/transparency.do?stateId=33. Easy to claim you are selective and fabulous in the dark. These college kids are taking on a lot of debt--they deserve to know about the quality of their teacher prep program.
Little more than a boy? He's a 19 year old man, accountable for his deplorable actions in the 1st degree. Why it was done has already been established; he's a muslim terrorist, like ALL anti-Western Muslim terrorists. Their mass hatred for all Jews and Gentiles has been in exsistance for thousands of years. Why do you wish to make out this criminal as "a poor boy who can be rehabilitated with a dose of Western Liberalism? He's am enemy of the state and as such, should be treated and executed as one!
Thanks for your comment. If you go to the New York State Education Department website, there is a reference to requirements for "provisional" and "permanent certification." The point I was trying to make: becoming a teacher doesn't end with a 4-year degree; it's an ongoing, time-intensive, and costly process.
Google Deliberately Dumbing Down and see what Charlotte Iserbyte oberved in the Education Dept. in the 80's. She was fired for being outspoked. This was No child Left Behind and ELA and Math testing (teaching for the test).
The $1.1 million would be far better spent rounding up the fathers of the little darlings and compelling these louts to man up, so that the children's mothers can stay home to care for them.
This is fantastic news! Many of the young women served by the YWCA have been hard pressed to continue work and school without this support! A great thank you to our state elected officials for giving low income families a chance to participate in the workforce and add their talents to making NYS a great place to live and work!
Of course Morelle defends his colleagues. His boss, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, signed off on a $103,000 taxpayer-funded settlement with two former staffers of Brooklyn Assemblyman Vito Lopez who accused him of sexual harassment. Nothing to see here.
Scouting was never about sex or sexuality, heterosexuality, homosexuality or other. Radical homosexual activists with an agenda tried to force the BSA, a private organization, to accept their views. It started with attacks on the BSA in San Francisco and spread from there. It got so bad the Boy Scouts were even booed at the Democratic National Convention in August 2000. Even when the Supreme Court ruled that the BSA, as a private organization, could exclude anyone they wanted to, the activists persisted. (You know how persistant these types are; they are same people who disrupted mass at St. Patrick's in New York, throwing condoms and even desecrating a communion host.)
It's sad that there seems to be a need to expose children to adult topics at earlier ages these days. Does sex need to be part of teaching boys about camping, hiking, and swimming? Should the BSA be required to develop a policy and discuss abortion rights? Let's have one place where kids can still be kids.
If there was ever a place for 'don't ask, don't tell' its in scouting. If you are truly interested in helping the scouting program, why do you need to make your sexual preference known? What purpose does it serve other than to push an agenda where it has no place. If you don't like the BSA rules, don't join.
Wishful thinking on the part of some city officials. It's even outside of Artwalk.
So your hard-earned tax dollars will be going to provide handouts to people making $65k (presumably on top of their food stamps, disability checks and housing subsidies) — and oh by the way, laundered through the AFL-CIO! You can't make up this stuff.
