School Board Meeting-January 9, 2012

I attended another school board meeting. I’ve got to say, those meetings need to be moved out of that office and to some place a little more friendly and with more room. It’s not a very inviting room to walk into. I’ve heard a few people comment on this before and I’ve got to say I agree. On the plus side there were copies of the agenda available at the door which I don’t think has been there in the past. But anyway, move the meetings, I think it’ll help with attendance.

On to the agenda.

First off let me say this. I wish more questions would be asked of the items. Now granted I’m not sitting there with all of the info in front of me so maybe that’s one reason why there isn’t more. Moving on.

1. Jon Wager = Board Chair, Bruce Lund = Vice Chair, Kendall Stelter = Clerk, Ann Jensen = Treasurer

2. It was decided to amend the last set of minutes (I think it was) to list the super’s salary and his perks and none perks individually for historical and legal reasons. Good idea.

3. So the One Act Play wants to move the lighting for one week for safety and training reasons. Now I don’t know what the set up is, but it doesn’t sound very safe. This was tabled for further discussion. Someone in the room (who shall remain nameless) seemed to cop an attitude about this for some reason. Not sure what that was about or perhaps I was seeing things.

4. The board decided to award the bid for the fire alarm equipment to Protection Systems. This is one area I would have liked to have heard more of a discussion. But again, I didn’t have the bids in front of me.

5. Flexible Learning Year. It was brought up that this issue was discussed at a recent superintendent’s meeting and the consensus was that they were against a 2 week earlier start. I’d like to know some of the reasons. Also a survey was conducted amoungst some of the school staff and it was overwhelming for staying the same. I’d like to know why.

So it sounds like the 2 week early start has been dropped and they are now looking at a 1 week early start. There are 2 meetings planned in January for the Public to ask questions, but apparently these are also game/event nights so I imagine attendance will be low. I sensed they think this may be a good idea. So did I. A MONTH AGO!! Any who. They need to vote on this before Feb. 1st.

6. Side note: During discussion of the week changes and how that’ll affect this or that, there was talk of trying to get the 2nd quarter done before “holiday” time. Hippie.

7. There was some budget talk. Nothing too interesting here. Next year’s attendance will be down due to a smaller Kindergarten class. Hey I did my part, one of those will be mine! No staffing cuts planned, so that’s good. Plans to try and upgrade technology at the school. I heard talk of  the need for a “technology guy”. Technology guy, where have I heard  that before? Oh yeah. Coming out of my mouth over A YEAR AGO!!

Where was I? Oh yeah.

8. There was a discussion on communications at the school. What upgrades need to be made. Training the staff will be taking to improve on their skills along with the kids. I’m not completely sold on iPad’s yet, but I suppose it’s a little too late now.

9. It sounds like there is going to be more of a focus spent on reading, more specifically the kiddos in the Pre-school to 3rd grade range. The high school staff is reading a book called “The Power of ICU”. I’m going to check that out and see what it’s about. The elementary side is reading “The Education of Little Tree”. It’s about diversity. Is there a more abused term than diversity? I think not.

That is pretty much the “highlights” of the meeting. I could have been worse. I could have been home trying to get the kids to bed. (love you Heather)

3. Just think. The U.S. only needs $15.23 trillion to go broke.

4. My response to this is the same as it is for reparations, I’m sorry it happened but, nope.

5. I would highly recommend not walking down any dark alleys. But if you do and you wake up in a tub of ice, stay in the ice and call 911. If you don’t have a cell phone on you, cause realistically you’re not going to still have it one you……crap… never mind. You’re screwed. I just hope you dressed nice to church.

6. How much you wanna bet those protest losers leave this guy alone? After all what would they do without their iPad’s and iPod’s?

6. What frickin’ parent thought this was a good idea?

The 50 Most Obnoxious Quotes of the Year That Was 2011—#10-#1

10) You miserable son of a bitch, Rumsfeld! You miserable, murderous war criminal! sending people to die…sending American soldiers to die with your flip comment, ‘You go to war with the army you have!’ Sending people over there overprotected you slime ball! And you call Krugman’s post repugnant? You should be in the dark, put on trial and if the same laws applied to you as we applied to the German high command your ass would have been hanged months ago! You found Krugman’s column repugnant – the balls you people have – you and Cheney and Bush and all of you! —Mike Malloy

9) We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush’s compound, assassinated him, and dumped his body in the Atlantic. Uncontroversially, his crimes vastly exceed bin Laden’s, and he is not a “suspect” but uncontroversially the “decider” who gave the orders to commit the “supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole” (quoting the Nuremberg Tribunal) for which Nazi criminals were hanged: the hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of refugees, destruction of much of the country, the bitter sectarian conflict that has now spread to the rest of the region.

…Same with the name, Operation Geronimo. The imperial mentality is so profound, throughout western society, that no one can perceive that they are glorifying bin Laden by identifying him with courageous resistance against genocidal invaders. It’s like naming our murder weapons after victims of our crimes: Apache, Tomahawk… It’s as if the Luftwaffe were to call its fighter planes “Jew” and “Gypsy.” — Noam Chomsky

8) My last word here out in the hallway just outside of [Lawrence O’Donnell’s] studio is that the police need to join us. In the same way the Egyptian army joined the people in Freedom Square there in Cairo. This is my appeal to the New York Police Department, the police departments all over the country. You are working class people. You’re not paid enough. You have the most dangerous job in the country, and these rich bastards on Wall Street they have ruined your 401(k)s, your pension funds, your future, your children’s future. Money that should be going to having better law enforcement has gone to needless wars in other lands. So, my appeal to the police is you are us and we are you, and join us. It’s fun. We’ll even let you beat on a bongo drum. That’s my last word. Thank you. — Michael Moore

7) You know, if a ballplayer threw a game and they get caught, they go to jail. Well, what are we going to do to the Republicans who are throwing the country?

“They’re throwing our country, and they all should be put in jail for what they’re doing, because they’re destroying our country, because they said at the beginning our one mission is to get rid of President Obama. That was their mission. They don’t care how much they destroy other people. They don’t care whether you go to work. They don’t care about anything.

“All they want to do is destroy the president. And in destroying the president of the United States, you destroy our country. They should be put in jail, each and every one of them, for throwing the country. — Palm Beach County Commissioner, Burt Aaronson

6) I wish they (Republicans) were all f*cking dead! — Dan Savage

5) You know what, man? I am going to literally — if (Palin) gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready — because you know what? It’s for my country. It’s for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it’s for my country. — Christopher Titus

4) I’m prepared to keep an open mind and propose another stunt for climate sceptics – put your strong views to the test by exposing yourselves to high concentrations of either carbon dioxide or some other colourless, odourless gas – say, carbon monoxide. You wouldn’t see or smell anything. Nor would your anti-science nonsense be heard of again. How very refreshing. — Jill Singer

3) (Palin) did a disservice to every woman in America. She knew from the first month of pregnancy that kid was going to be Down’s Syndrome. It’s brain dead. A virtual vegetable. She carries it to all these different political events against abortion, she did it just because she didn’t want to say she’d had an abortion. How long is it going to live? Another 12, 15 years? Doesn’t even know it’s in this world. So what kind of compassionate conservative is she? I don’t think anybody will want her near the White House. — Larry Flynt

2) So when does SEAL Unit 6, or whatever it’s called, drop in on George Bush? Bush was responsible for a lot more death, innocent death, than bin Laden. Wasn’t he, or am I wrong here? — Mike Malloy

1) Glen Rice is a wonderful man. He’s a wonderful guy. You want (Sarah Palin) to be with somebody like [Dennis] Rodman getting up … in there. Pushing her guts up in the back of her head! …Glen Rice is a nice, mellow, docile man, non-threatening guy. You want someone like Rodman — yeah baby! Let’s get that donkey in here now. [laughter] Just imagine Palin with a big old black stallion ripping. Yeehaw! [I]n life in general you know … everybody got to get that out of their system when they get out of college,” he said. “If you’re a black man, every white girl, every uppity middle class … everybody got to get their share of love. She could always get boned out by a black person, a vote to bang her. Other than a vote to run office, the only thing she can do … she’s not a bad person because she likes black people at least in her. Sarah Palin … she met the ‘wombshifter.’ — Mike Tyson on ESPN radio

The 50 Most Obnoxious Quotes of the Year That Was 2011—#20-#11

20) I get out of all of these things that many of these candidates would rather take legislation to build a time machine and go back in time to where we had, you know, no women voting, slavery was cool. I mean, it’s just kind of ridiculous. — Thomas Roberts

19) I will never stand for a national anthem again. I will turn my back and I will raise a fist. — Jesse Ventura

18) The dead in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania were used to sanctify the state’s lust for war….Because few cared to examine our activities in the Muslim world, the attacks became certified as incomprehensible by the state and its lap dogs, the press….Our brutality and triumphalism, the byproducts of nationalism and our infantile pride, revived the jihadist movement. We became the radical Islamist movement’s most effective recruiting tool. We descended to its barbarity. We became terrorists too. The sad legacy of 9/11 is that the assholes, on each side, won. — Chris Hedges

17) L. Ron Hubbard himself was and is trying to civilize white people and make them better human beings and take away from them their reactive minds … Mr. Hubbard recognized that his people have to be civilized. — Louis Farrakhan

16) I am sorry, but if you believe the newest death of OBL, you’re stupid. Just think to yourself–they paraded Saddam’s dead sons around to prove they were dead–why do you suppose they hastily buried this version of OBL at sea? This lying, murderous Empire can only exist with your brainwashed consent–just put your flags away and THINK! — Cindy Sheehan

15) And don’t any of you, by the way, any of you guys vote Republican. I’m not supposed to say, this isn’t political. …don’t come to me if you do! You’re on your own, Jack! — Joe Biden

14) Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now with this tea party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree. Some of them right now in Congress are comfortable with where we were 50 and 60 years ago but it’s a new day with a black President and a Congressional Black Caucus. — Andre Carson

13) All of you are white. Go to hell! Go to hell! Go to hell! Go to hell! — Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price

12) This is all about (Chris Christie) being a bully and a punk. I wanted to punch him in his head. — Senate President Stephen Sweeney

11) [Andrew Breitbart]…I want that bastard destroyed. Now.[…] when I say I want him destroyed I am not kidding. I want to see him penniless, homeless, begging on the street for money to buy food[…] he can die on the street so far as I’m concerned[…] let you and your rich ass Brentwood family suffer. — Tim Wise

Jesse Goes Down

The 50 Most Obnoxious Quotes of the Year That Was 2011—#30-#21

30) I just want to tell you a little bit about what it’s like to not have Planned Parenthood. You have to add water to the formula to make it stretch. You have to give your kids Ramen noodles at the end of the month to fill up their little bellies so they won’t cry — Democrat Gwen Moore

29) I am loathe to bring up what is in our head because we don’t like to talk about it so much. But on this particular day, on Martin Luther King Day, I think this needs to be said. That imaginary person that’s going to break into your home and kill you, who does that person look like? You know, it’s not freckle-faced Jimmy down the street, is it really? I mean, that’s not what really, that’s not what really people, we never really want to talk about the racial or the class part of this, in terms of how it’s the poor or it’s people of color that we imagine that we’re afraid of. Why are we afraid? What is that, and it’s been a fear that has existed for a very, very long time. — Michael Moore

28) [I]f you go back to the year 2000, when we had an obvious disaster and – and saw that our voting process needed refinement, and we did that in the America Votes Act and made sure that we could iron out those kinks, now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally – and very transparently – block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic candidates than Republican candidates. And it’s nothing short of that blatant. — Debbie Wasserman Schultz

27) My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. — Lupe Fiasco

26) Herman Cain is probably well-liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party, conservative movement and tea party movement. People like Karl Rove like to keep the racism very covert and so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity so he can say, ‘Look: This is not a racist anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look: We have a black man.’ And look he’s polling well and he won a straw poll. — Janeane Garofalo

25) You have what I call the ‘Get the N-word out of the White House party,’ the Tea Party…. At the end of the day, there’s a big bubble coming out of their heads saying, you know, ‘Can we just lynch him?’ — Sean Penn

24) What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. [The] atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neo-cons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons….The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it. — Paul Krugman

23) President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Missouri, on Sunday, but you know what they’re talking about? Like this right-wing slut, what’s her name, Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she’s a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama’s doing it, they’re working him over. — Ed Schultz

22) Herman Cain’s shtick is a version of race minstrelsy where he performs “authentic negritude” as wish fulfillment for White Conservative fantasies. Like the fountain at Lourdes, Cain in his designated role as black Conservative mascot, absolves the White racial reactionaries at CPAC of their sins. This is a refined performance that Black Conservatives have perfected over many decades and centuries of practice. — Chauncey DeVega

21) The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln. — Barack Obama

39) If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they have been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart. — Rick Perry

38) They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own — they’re putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. We all have this — we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it. — Michael Moore

37) It [the Republican successes in the 2010 elections] happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery. In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society…. — Democratic Congressman Jim Moran

36) Millions are in an uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is available online at http://bit.ly/kcairo – KC. — Kenneth Cole

34) Zionists dominate the government of the United States of America and her banking system. — Louis Farrakhan

33) One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy. I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me. —Karen Finney

32) I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay, you know, the ability to pay back anything over $100 million [of] personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount of that amount then they should, you know, go to the reeducation camps and if that doesn’t help, then being beheaded. —Roseanne Barr, estimated net worth: $80 million

31) Our president is committing war crimes. What does that make him? A war criminal.– Cynthia McKinney
