first, about DWTS. It's getting so you don't care to watch as the audience seems to have more clout that the judges. As I said before, judges should have bigger vote as they are the pros. Bristol Palin is a very cute young lady and seems real nice, but, she can't dance and should have been off two weeks ago.
Last night I saw a newscast about schools failing the minorities. Now I do agree that a lot of schools could do a better job, but when are these people going to take responsibility for themselves and their children. My husband and I worked in schools for over 35 years and when you see kids and parents expecting enititled grades and lighter discipline because they are minorities, you know it's not all the schools fault. All hell breaks loose if they don't get their way. And no, it's not all the minorities who behave this way, but a great deal of them. They come late, homework not done, tired because they haven't a decent bedtime, with a chip on their shoulder and parents who make excuse after excuse for them. Case in point. While cleaning a room across the hall from a conference going on with the principal, teacher and parent I heard this. Mother, "What do you want, his homework done or readable"? Principal, "both, we can't tell if it's correct if we can't read it." Mother, "too bad". Mark it done and leave my kid alone." I don't think I will every forget that conversation. No, I wasn't eavesdropping, it was just she was yelling so loud you couldn't help hearing it. They is no reason if they are sitting in the classroom with students who are doing the work, getting the grades and succeeding, that they shouldn't be doing the same. It's lack of proper parenting and laziness.
Let's see what else to rant. Okay, okay, that's enough for today.
Have a good day all.
