Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, September 23, 2010

Going to try this again as Blogger decided not to post it yesterday and I was in meetings all day and never noticed...


A look at the headlines around the globe...

Fla. dad sorry for storming school bus, threats
His daughter was harassed on the bus and to stop it, dad went onto the bus and screamed at young teeagers. I get the wanting to protect your child, but by becoming a child himself, the father ended up causing himself more trouble.  Contact the school..contact the police...just do not stoop down and play in the mud...especially when you are an adult and the others are kids.

Al-Qaida claims kidnapping of 5 French in Niger
French? Ummm...does anyone really care, I mean they are French!

Republicans block bill to lift military gay ban
They did try to pass a vote to allow gays in the men's rooms where they work though...tap tap tap

Japan officials delay Paris Hilton from entering
But North Korea wants her to visit soon

Girl posts public birthday party invite on Facebook, gets 21,000 replies
I never get invited to nuthin I say nuthin'

Study: Teacher bonuses fail to boost test scores
But the teacher's parking lot is now filled with more luxury cars

Ga. execution delayed after suicide attempt
Wait? You telling me this guy wanted to commit suicide and they stopped him...JUST SO they could give him a lethal injection??? Someone PLEASE tell me what is wrong with this picture

OK, I know...I really stink at this stuff, but I will continue trying until I get it correct...or until the remaining 5 readers get bored and leave with the rest of those who have already...

14 Of Your Sparks

  1. I'm here! I'm here!

    I'll pass on the French comment. I have a BIL who is French. Umm.....yeah.....

    Now, don't be dissing on teachers around me, my friend! You know how I feel about teachers! ;)

    The delayed execution, though, just baffles me. Really? So how many more tax dollars are wasted so that this dipsh*t can be "properly" executed. Pffftt.....Stupidity resides in all places.

  3. I didn't get the invite either. I guess we're just not part of the "in" crowd.

  6. TopChamp Says:
  7. I would genuinely like to know why burning the Qu'ran constitutes racial hatred rather than religious. Do you know the answer? Is there no religious hatred charge?

     
  8. Lisa Says:
  9. ROFL! I loved these. Do more, do more!!!!


    The suicide one takes the cake though. He was probably just trying to save them some money.

     
  10. ...I'm number six!! I'm number six!!...

     
  11. Micky-T Says:
  12. I made it through the whole thing...

    ...did I win something?

  14. SONGBIRD: I love teachers...as long as they TEACH

    JOHN: They will regret leaving us out!

    MIKE: I will check it out..this is something I do occasionally

    TOPCHAMP: Gee, I am not really sure

    LISA: Well thank you ma'am

    VITO: LOL YES you are

    MICKEYT: A hot dog!

     
  15. Jay Says:
  16. Okay, if I get Error 503 again I give up.

    Someday when I buy my own island and name it "Jayistan" I will make a list of people not allowed there. Paris Hilton will probably be on that list. She might be the only one though. haha

    There are a lot of problems with our educational system in this country. Teachers making TOO MUCH is NOT one of them.

     
  17. DrillerAA09 Says:
  18. I don't believe the French were kidnapped. I think they surrenderecd.

    The highest paid teacher in the world is not the answer to boosting test scores. Parents involved in their kids lives will boost test scores. Just sayin'

     
  19. JAY: What is this, Facebook? LOL WOO I get to visit the island! And you are so right about teachers...It was a joke

    DRILLERAA: LOLO TRUE!
    In both cases...true

     
  20. Travis Cody Says:
  21. I'm not entirely certain that boosting test scores is the answer to adequately educating children.

     
  22. Mimi Lenox Says:
  23. Don't get me started.
    Here's the problem. Oops. I started.
    Sometimes teachers are prevented from actually "teaching" because of the ridiculous amounts of hoop-jumping that must be done before any teaching can take place in the classroom. Why?
    Glad you asked.
    They are too tired from "planning" to plan to tell you what they are planning to teach to actually teach.

    P.S. I know there are teachers who are slackers. I know this. But the vast majority have their hands tied behind their backs because of the broken education system in this country. Start from scratch.
    A bulldozer might work.
