We sat around all day Sunday watching the snow fall and thinking it was going to add up to something. It didn’t. I’m not complaining. I have friends in Washington D-C who are wondering when the lights and heat are coming back on. I can’s imagine how helpless they must feel. The worst part about is that Washington D-C is expecting another five inches of snow from this storm we’re dealing with today.
We’re expecting a steady snow for about the next day and a half. We’ll follow that up with some wind that will produce near white-out conditions in places. I feel terrible. My Father-in-law came into town to see the boys this weekend and needs to get back on the road to Illinois this morning. He’s got a good car and will take his time, but I wouldn’t want to be out on I-80 unless I had to be.
He says the reason he wanted to take protections away from Gay Lesbian and Transgender students was that it was one of the ways the “Iowa we all used to know and love” is slipping away.
So just to make sure I have this straight…no pun intended; we want to make it easier for a kid…no matter who he or she is…to get picked on and bullied at school so you can forward your political agenda? I have trouble giving the green light for kids to beat up another kid for any reason…I don’t care if you believe it or not. They’re kids.
Seems like a great set of values from the party that claims it wants to foster respect and pillars of character in the community. What would it say to kids if we repealed this part of the anti-bullying law? It would give tacit approval of adults to pick on, ostracize and alienate a small number of students.
Character…apparently doesn’t count for anything. If it did, the people who run that program would denounce the idea. Every child should have a chance to go to school without fear of intimidation or physical violence.
Super Bowl Ads
I admit, I’m one of the people who really likes to watch the ads for the Superbowl. I agree with Adwatch from USA Today, the Snickers ad with Betty White and Abe Vegoda was one of the best. My favorite was the Casual Friday gone to far ad from Career Builder.
Brooke liked the Energy Police Ad.
Jeriann said she liked the Dodge Charger ad. Man’s Last Stand.
