Parents are pulling their children from Dallas, TX schools in wake of Ebola … Wouldn’t you?
In the wake of the first diagnosed case of Ebola in the United States and their children’s possible contact with individuals who may have come in contact with the infected patient, some parents are being cautious and pulling their children from schools.
Some Dallas parents pulled their children out of school Wednesday after health officials said five area children had come into contact with an Ebola patient over the weekend.
The five children were kept at home Wednesday, but that did not stop families from picking up their kids out of fears they might be vulnerable to illness, according to local news reports.
Parents at Sam Tasby Middle School and LL Hotchkiss Elementary were seen picking up their children following Wednesday’s press conference.
Dallas health officials had insisted that no other children were at risk of developing Ebola and urged families to keep their kids in school.
The Ebola patient was identified in news reports as Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who had shared a residence with an Ebola-stricken woman prior to his travel to the United States.
Could Liberals just stay the hell out of our lives?
Now bake sales for school fundraiser are public enemy number one for liberals. Thanks to the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by first lady Michelle Obama, school kids will no longer be able to have cupcake bake sales to raise money. Thanks Michelle, because apples, celery and carrot sticks are not quite the money makers as brownies, cookies and cupcakes. So what does Michelle Obama have against school children raising money for school trips or band and athletic equipment?
Good grief, what ever happened to the America I grew up in where kids could have a bake sale to raise money for their class trip right after playing a game of dodge-ball?
Maybe Michelle should start with you own husband first?
But the sales won’t be so sweet starting this fall. Campus bake sales—a mainstay of school fundraisers—are going on a diet. A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars.
Jeff Ellsworth, principal of the kindergarten through eighth-grade school in Chapman, Neb., isn’t quite sure how to break the news to the kids. “The chocolate bars are a big seller,” said Mr. Ellsworth.
The restrictions that took effect in July stem from the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by first lady Michelle Obama and her “Let’s Move!” campaign. The law overhauled nutrition standards affecting more than 30 million children. Among the changes: fatty french fries were out, while baked sweet potato fries were deemed to be fine.
The law also required the U.S. Department of Agriculture to set standards for all food and beverages sold during the school day, which includes vending machines, snack carts and daytime fundraisers. It allowed for “infrequent” fundraisers, and states were allowed to decide how many bake sales they would have that didn’t meet nutrition standards.

42 year old Felicia Smith, a middle school teacher at Stovall Middle School in Texas, has admitted to giving a male student a full contact birthday lap dance in her third period class in front of the entire class. The student was placed in a chair at the front of the room where Smith gave him a full contact lap dance, complete with rotating and rubbing her butt against him, rubbing her hands all over his body and the teacher getting on her knees in front of him and placed her head between his legs. Felicia Smith has been charged with improper relationship with a student.
So why did she admit to such an act, this is the age of social media and smart phones, there was a video made of the incident of course.
Felicia Smith, 42, was charged with improper relationship with student.
It all happened at Stovall Middle School on February 26, according to Aldine ISD police.
According to a male student, “Ms. Smith” grabbed his journal and stopped him from talking to his friends as he walked into his third-period class. He said he sat at his desk, and after the tardy bell rang, she placed a chair in front of the room. Music started playing and the entire class of middle school students began yelling and telling him to sit down. It was his birthday.
The student said he sat down and Ms. Smith gave him a full contact lap dance, rotating her buttocks against him and rubbing her hands all over his body. Ms. Smith also got on her knees in front of him and placed her head between his legs. The student admitted that he slapped Ms. Smith on the buttocks a few times.
At the end of the dance, Ms. Smith wrapped her arms around the student and he gave her bottom another squeeze. She hugged him and said “I love you, baby. Happy birthday,” according to documents.
The War on CHRISTmas: Parents Livid as Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night as Too Offensive
THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS CONTINUES WITH POLITICAL CORRECTNESS NONSENSE …
At Kings Point Intermediate School on Long Island, NY it was ok for the liberal school edumacators thought it was perfectly okay to offend Christians by sanitizing the Christmas song ‘Silent Night’ of all references to God so they did not offend others. Yup, because the birth of Jesus, the son of God is just of darn offensive. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! What kind of IDIOTS do we have running schools these days? Turns out they did offend many people, the parents that were wondering what song they were listening to their kids butcher.
There is anger at a Long Island school because they changed the words to the song “Silent Night.”
The district says it was to avoid offending people but it seems like it did the opposite.
Parents are so confused that 5th graders at RJO Intermediate School in Kings Park recently performed the song “Silent Night” with all religious words like Christ, God and Jesus taken out.
Dan Gallo, a parent of one of the students was completely offended by it.
“There is so many Christmas songs. Why would you change the lyrics to something that is very near and dear to so many people?” said Gallo.
Another parent, Tina Byrne, doesn’t have a problem with what the school did.
The school district says the school principal and the choral director decided to teach the students the altered version.
Watch the VIDEO below and try to figure out just what song these kids are singing.
Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
‘Round yon virgin , mother and child
Holy infant so, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glory streams from heaven afar
Heavenly, hosts sings Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.
Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.
I sense a pendulum swing back the other direction of people are getting real sick and tired of this PC nonsense.
What a Message from Portland, Oregan … City Shuts Down 11 Year Old Madison Root Selling Mistletoe to Fund Braces, But OK to Beg for Money
WELCOME TO A LACK OF COMMON SENSE FROM PORTLAND, OR …
All 11 yer old Madison Root wanted to do was help her dad pay for her braces that were going to cost $4800 by selling mistletoe. It’s Christmas time, what better gift to sell than freshly picked mistletoe in a cute package with a red bow? Well, one would think. That was until she decided to see her mistletoe next to the Skidmore Fountain in Downtown Portland, Oregon and a private security guard asked Madison to stop selling because city ordinance bans commerce like that without proper approval. UNREAL … papers, where are your papers!!!
I am sure this was the intent of the ordinance and it was meant for 11 year old’s. More so, I am sure this is what Our Founding Fathers had intended when forming this great nation. But in this day and age government interference and regulation have increased so much that they would squash a little girl’s efforts and entrepreneurial spirit to help her dad pay for her braces. Especially, in this day and age when we hear stories of so many young kids that just expect things, Madison wanted to help. Oh yea, did we tell you that Madison Root was not allowed to sell her mistletoe without approval, but it would have been OK for her to beg. There is a message to teach the young.
She’s hoping to raise money to chip in for her braces. The dentist says they’ll cost $4,800.
“I felt like I could help my dad with the money,” she said.
Madison and her dad bagged up the mistletoe and started selling them next to the Skidmore Fountain in Downtown Portland on Saturday morning.
That’s also where the Portland Saturday Market holds its weekly venue.
A private security guard asked Madison to stop selling because city ordinance bans commerce like that without proper approval.
“I wouldn’t think I’d have any problems because people are asking for money, people are selling stuff, this is a public place,” said Madison.
And she’s right — to a point.
In fact, we saw people protesting, hold signs, playing music, and begging all over the area on Sunday morning as well.
The Saturday Market is incredibly diverse.
You can buy whistles, order crepes and sign a marijuana petition all without walking more than ten steps.
But you can’t open a business without going through the market’s formal application process. The market sets rules for vendors which Madison agrees make sense.
Begging is different.
