    . . .and that's just Iraq. Not Afghanistan, not the uber-wealthy tax breaks, not the subsidies for major corporations, and definitely not the Wall Street bailout. Why people cry and moan about the (relative) pennies spent on 'welfare', and aren't protesting in the streets about the (relative) dollars wasted on this other mess, is beyond me.

  • CICS Wrightwood reviewed by a parent

    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.
