How is Florida even a STATE anymore?

Seriously, no offense to our members there, but we need to eject Florida from the Union before they drag the rest of us down...

Well, I'm reserving judgement until I hear whether or not he floats or is made of wood.

No offense taken...Florida is becoming ridiculous.

It'* teachers like this guy that made going to school tolerable for me, and it sickens me that this happened...though it doesn't surprise me at all. Alyssa'* principals are total a$$holes at her school....we stopped by McDs on the way to school (lunch for her since she was allowed to miss the morning part), picked up lunch, and she took into school with her. Principal sees this, tells her she CANNOT eat the food she brought in, and when she tells him that she had no money to get school food, he said "tough". Believe me, both of us went in for a little pow-wow with him. He hasn't said a word to her since.

I can't stand the school systems of today. All these schools know how to do around here is how to teach kids how to pass the year-end test...that'* it. No exploration of the imagination, no sitting down with the kids to explain hidden meanings in some of lifes simple things....I actually feel sorry for the kids that go to school nowadays. And it'* THESE kids that will be leading us, fighting wars, and developing new technologies 20 years from now.

For those of us 25 and older...those years are going to be hell on earth compared to what today is like.

I read it, but I'm not sure what'* happening. My concern would rather be some kid getting pricked with a toothpick when trying to repeat the mentioned trick.
