Teachers In Maine Taunt Children of National Guard Members
"What we're hearing is that some of the educators are talking about the possible war in Iraq being unethical and that those who would fight it are unethical," Maj. Rogers said.
"Recently it has been brought to our attention that some school personnel ... may have been less than sensitive to children of military families regarding our continued strained relations with Iraq," Mr. Albanese wrote in a letter sent Tuesday to all superintendents and principals in Maine.
"In some cases, parents who are about to be deployed have observed added stress and anxiety among their children who perceive a staff member or their peers as being insensitive to their beliefs and the potential danger to loved ones," Mr. Albanese wrote.
Not that educators have a bias but it seems odd that children would be indoctrinated into anti-government, pro-terrorist dictator thought at such a young age.
How the UK Will Stop Teen Pregnancy: Encouraging Oral Sex
Yeah, you have to be European to understand that one.
The scheme, which has been pioneered by Exeter University and is backed by the Departments of Health and Education, trains teachers to discuss various pre-sex 'stopping points' with under-age teenagers.
It aims to reduce promiscuity by encouraging pupils to discover 'levels of intimacy', including oral sex, instead of full sexual intercourse.
More than 100,000 children are now taking the course at one in every thirty secondary schools. It forms part of efforts to tackle Britain's teenage pregnancy rate, which is the highest in Western Europe.
You've seen British women, right? Without sex, how else are they going to get a man?
Where Muslims Love The US -- Kosovo
Their savage religious brethren in other parts of the world, intent on keeping their repressive homocidal dictatorships intact, may be interested in hurting America ... but Muslims in the last country where the US went in to save Muslims can't get enough of the US.
"When I see scenes on television of people elsewhere burning American flags, I'm deeply hurt," said Dr. Besnik Bardhi, who runs a clinic in the southwestern city of Djakovica, where 1,000 people remain missing after the 1998-99 war. "If there is a God, his missionaries on Earth are Americans," he said.
Bardhi's wife was pregnant with their first child during Slobodan Milosevic's savage crackdown on Muslim ethnic Albanians in the Serbian province. The couple promised each other that if they had a girl they'd name her Madeleine, and Bill if it was a boy.
PETA Claims Pardoned Thanksgiving Turkeys Living In "Sub-standard" Conditions
Officially demonstrating that they are on the marginal fringe of rationality, PETA ( People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) sent a letter Wednesday to President Bush, saying the turkeys he pardoned the past two years as a Thanksgiving tradition are living in "substandard conditions." The group claimed the birds were shivering in a shed without enough food and water at Frying Pan Park, a tourism farm in Herndon, Va.
"One would think that two animals that had been pardoned by the leader of the free world could be given better accommodations," wrote Bruce G. Friedrich, head of PETA's outreach program.
Friedrich asked Bush to seek improvements to the barns and care for the animals.
German Economist Argues No War on Iraq But Stabs American Who Disagrees With Him
Police detained Frank Oesterle after he stabbed American John Flynn with a Swiss knife on Friday, Superintendent Maximo Calimlim, the provincial police chief in Cebu City said.
The 41 year-old American is confined at a Cebu hospital
with multiple stab wounds, but his life is not thought to be in danger.
Calimlim said Flynn and Oesterle, a 37 year-old economist from Munich, met at a bar in the beach resort of Moalboal near here and started arguing their countries' respective positions over UN Security Council resolutions on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.
"When you're on a holiday, you better speak about nice food, beautiful women and white beaches," said the German, who said he would ask the American to forgive him. He would also urge police not to press charges.
Of course he doesn't think charges should be pressed. He is not the person who was stabbed. Just like Germans will say "Well, why did you listen to us?" if Americans are attacked by Iraqi chemical weapons in the hands of terrorists.
