You want to physically assault a member of the team you're supposedly a fan of -- because the guy isn't as good as you want him to be? And you think that the rest of us share that pathology?
We have an Uday Hussein wannabe here, apparently. ...

If the kid is good enough that you would offer him if he were older, then it would be dumb not to offer.
If you are "projecting" a kid to grow a lot or improve a lot, then you don't offer -- you wait until those things happen.
There's a small gray area in between....

There aren't any pro-Russian baltic people. Your friend is ethnic Russian. Estonians, Latvians, and Lithuanians love the U.S. I was there in the summer of '92, not long after they had gotten their independence, and they were the most pro-American people in Europe by a mile....

It's definitely indoctrination. It also doesn't really have much to do with Common Core, except that Common Core opponents don't want any strings on teachers. They want them to be able to teach whatever they want.
I hope you don't think that the teacher is telling your daughter those things bec...

That, since the standards have been adopted by over 40 states, they will have the standards "in common."
The "core" part comes from the fact that these are central concepts and skills to be mastered, and states can add up to 15% additional ...

There is absolutely nothing "federal" about Common Core. Zilch. When people like you talk aabout the Race to the Top money, I wonder if you realize that was part of the 2009 stimulus program, and it is all gone. LSU also got research money through the stimulus, so does that make LSU a federal prog...

The problem with painting Common Core as a conspiracy by leftist radicals is that they have every reason to fear Common Core. And Bill Ayers, whose picture graces that article as a supposed conspirator, has actually said that Common Core is "catastrophic."
