Centrists, when viewed by conservatives are liberal. Centrists, when viewed by liberals, tend to be conservative. A...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Should teachers get paid extra for teaching at bad schools? - thetempleowl on 3/19/17 at 10:53 am
Why should we be pushing the best teachers to the worst schools? I dislike the whole no kid left behind policy. That isn't life. In life, you screw up, screw around, slack off, and you get left behind. Why is school any different? Why teach a class at the level of the dumbest common denomin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Part of the reason is because it's cheap. When you don't have a lot of money you end up buying cheap food.

re: Don’t Believe the Dishonest Media and Polling Hype, Trump has GOT THIS! - thetempleowl on 10/23/16 at 10:17 am
So when you say dishonest media, you are saying that the media is intentionally lying about Trump being significantly behind? Why would the media do such a thing? That could only hurt Clinton by people thinking well if we are voting her, well we really don't need to, she's going to win anyway....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
