Teh Squeaky Wheel
Maaaaaaan…if SackO’SugarK sees that traffic unjammer, she’s probably gonna want one. (During one of our very earliest phone conversations, she opined that school zones ought not have speed limits because, “those damned kids are supposed to be in school.” She has a low opinion of many drivers on the road, too.)
Rep Omar: “Some building somewhere caught fire.”
Because I’m a bad gerbil, I hope to read some day that “Something unfortunate happened to some Congressional bint in a hijab.”
Not that this is news, but far too many American Jooos are cowardly fools.
RE Omar and her comments -- it’s too many cowardly Americans unwilling to call out something offensive and just plain stupid for fear of their own mobs.
Powerline is doing a good job reporting on the Justine Damond murder case…or as Rep Omar would likely call it the “some cop did something” case. This post is particularly good: https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/04/if-the-justine-damond-case-feels-different-heres-why.php
Today I turned 60. I’m not happy at all about that, but I guess it beats the alternative.
Happy Birfday 1/VII, Sven!
Sixty…pffffft! I beat ya there more than three years ago.
Thanks for the Powerline link; I doubt there will be any outcome resembling justice in that case.
The Omar business once again demonstrates how venal our Congress has become.
Happy 2nd Monday of the Week, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Happy birthday One of 7, Sven!
I’ll join you in the big six-oh at the end of July.
Thanks for the powerline link, Sven. I’ll try to read it sometime today.
So, I get up this morning and find I have an IM from my boss. My coworker, with whom I team-teach, has “an urgent matter” and won’t be teaching today. BTW, we’re to be observed either today or Thursday. OK, I’ll cover her lessons, I guess. Let’s see what she’s planned. Download the powerpoint for one class. Pre-load two youtube videos for the other class (and figure out what to do with the rest of the time). Have a conversation with my boss about this teacher’s performance and seeming unwillingness to be evaluated. Figure out what we can do if we need to get rid of her -- how to cover her classes, develop the remaining Individualized Education Plans she has for the rest of the year, manage the students on her caseload, etc.
So Paddy is teh youngster on teh wheel. I’ve taken more than one online course in a virtual classroom, but I’d love to see what goes on in yours with a full class of kids.
Thanks for the bday wishes, but this one really has me down in the dumps. Heading out to dinner with Mrs Sven. I best put on a happy face so she doesn’t shoot me.
