  • You're certainly assuming a lot about me, and you seem fixated on terms to call people. Hallmarks of a racist, you're always thinking in terms of labels. Look at me, if I wanted to address you, I'd say "@Dr. Magic." See, that's how a non-racist thinks and talks.

    I posted in reply to someone who talked about the disadvantages of voting for Rauner. "Cutting off your nose to spite your face" is an expression used to describe self-destructive behaviour, it doesn't literally mean cut of your nose, etc. And, I replied to a post talking about voting for Rauner in this situation, and I said something about that subject. If you though your posting wasn't about that, then you didn't need to reply. So, why did you reply? Were you just trolling? And what is this nonsense about kleenex? You in high school or sumtin'?

    My son has attended this school since kindergarten and is now in 7th grade. He is doing well and I feel he will be ready for high school. The parking situation for after school pick up could use some help but overall the school is organized and keeps me informed on upcoming events. Most of the events are scheduled too late making it difficult for me to attend. If these events were scheduled for say 1hr after the school day...you may see more parent turnout. Asking someone to come back 3hrs after they just left...well...think about it. It's not going to happen. Overall, I like this school and would recommend it. My daughter is starting kindergarten and I really can't see any schools that measure up.

  • Yep, but one thing they will do is fight to keep their neighborhoods safe if they want to stay. We are going to have to develop an effective plan to take back our streets, along with prayer.
