there HAVE been a few tradeoffs. But it’s worth it, right?
important lesson to learn: ALWAYS record. Always. Of course, in accordance with your local laws.
If this incident were not recorded, we really wouldn’t have known what exactly happened. It would have devolved into a he-said, she-said issue, the school hiding behind the usual “We don’t comment on student matters” policy.
we were more like Sweden. Don’t you?
“It seems likely that Sweden did much better than other countries in terms of the economy, education, mental health, and domestic abuse, and still came away from the pandemic with fewer excess deaths than in almost any other European country, and less than half that of the United States.”
… Swedish students suffered no learning loss during the pandemic, whereas half of U.S. students did. The country’s economic growth outperformed the eurozone and the United States. It avoided other countries’ increased suicide rates and deteriorated mental health.
the Left, NEVER bend the knee! Sure, you can apologize, but they will just beat you over the head with it and castrate you! Just don’t do it.
Say what is right and true, and then never walk it back an inch! Just stand tall for the right. Remember, they are out to destroy you and will do so without hesitation or remorse. You being “polite” and “amiable” is just an opening for them to destroy you!
cut Hunter loose for PR purposes. He needs to stop with the smarmy, crap-eating Hunter defenses. Because the “stink” is getting on him. And it is opening him up to more scrutiny.
But he probably won’t. He has already committed to a course of action, and if he changed now it would very naturally provoke the question, “Why are you doing a 180-degree about-face?” To change is to admit that there was a need to change. It is a de facto sort of mealy-mouthed confession.
So Joe will white-knuckle this thing out. He charaterologically is simply unable to do otherwise.
It’s like Bud Light. If right at first they had said, “We were wrong, and we have fired the person responsible. We apologize for offending our customers and we have taken measures that such a travesty will never happen again. Please, accept our apologies.”
See, if Bud Light had done that right at first, they never would have lost tens of billions of dollars. But by refusing to apologize, they have become a punchline. And lost their market dominance.
Joe Biden is similarly in danger of becoming a sick punchline, a walking example of corruption and dishonesty. Will he continue to make the same mistake? Almost for sure, yes.
And even if Joe were to apologize tomorrow, it would be rightfully seen as mere political exigency, not a heartfelt mea culpa. So I guess we are a little late for a Joe Biden apology. That ship has sailed…
some people live in a fantasy land and just never learn. Fortunately, most people learn once they have left college. That’s why older and wiser people tend to be conservative.
I have argued for years that much of the bureaucracy should be based in communities around the country, and NOT in the DC area. You would get a far different employee, for starters! And a far smaller bureaucracy.
I really hope it happens! It would be good for the country.
THIS is the way to solve things. Leftists are just not willing to protect kids. They would rather hew to their hackism/religion than pay attention to the evidence and logic and protect kids!
what the 2nd amendment is all about. Leftists have gone FAR astray thinking it is about guns. But it isn’t. Lefties tend to live in a fantasy world where the prosperity and ease that is all we know are the norms of humanity and will always be our lot in life.
Well, that is NOT the case. So understand that the 2nd amendment is about the ability to resist a despotic government. Just like the Minute-Men were called upon to defend their country and freedom and the pursuit of happiness, so WE, the modern regular citizens, need to be ready at a moment’s notice to do the same thing.
Look, a standing army is necessary to the survival of this country. An army prevents others from coming in and taking control. So we truly need that defense.
Unfortunately, a despot would, if he can (and very often does), turn that standing army against its own citizens. You know, just like Britain did to us!
THEREFORE, because a standing army is necessary to keep the country from being conquered, THE PEOPLE must balance that out (the founders were big on checks and balances) and have the “unalienable” right to keep and bear arms–that right “shall not be infringed. The people must be able to defend themselves against a tyrannical government–just like what happened in the Revolutionary war!
SO, the FIRST amendment was set to ensure free speech and such. But the SECOND was to makes sure that the people could defend themselves against a despotic leader. At a moment’s notice.
a little sensible about such things. And Sweden is catching on!
The nation’s parliament has just given the green light to push forward with plans to build a new nuclear plant after voting 40 years ago to phase out atomic power.
I sure wish WE were more like Sweden. Don’t you?
The move may also indicate the climate cult dominoes are beginning to fall, as European investment firms have also been backing away from ESG (Environmental-Social-Governance) policies.
