The Immigration issue is not going away anytime soon. Because it’s very hard one to decide as to who stays! And who goes?
I always have believed in the “Grandfather rule” But! Where can it be applied? You see what a problem we are in? More questions than answers!
I guess you could say that I was looking for a continuation of what I posted earlier.
But! This is just as good because I can relate to it. I was a student in a school(s) where you either a good student! Or you were treated as excrement! I meant what I said! At the time there was no real testing for abilities to see if you were meant to be in regular classes. Or slow learners class.
My mom had a hard time convincing the school principle to put me in slow learners class. The principal said: “We will put him in regular class”. Mistake! If ever. My mom even told me I flunked each & every class! But! They still kept on passing me. When she asked the principal why? The principal said: “Because of his age!”. I was always one to two years older than my other classmates.,
Teachers should not put down a child in front of their classmates because of their problem(s) in class where they think that will help “Wake them up!”. Not true! It does more harm than good.
Granted! Teachers are not child mental health experts. But that is to presented to the parents & the principal for them to decide not the teacher.,
Over the years! I found that the boys were called on more than the girls! Chauvinism! Even in grade school!
And YES! There was some what was called “Class Clowns” in school. We (Yes! even me!) did not really want to be there but! You know how that works.
The inconsistencies! Of teachers how “They” wanted their classroom to be. I still think it’s a matter of bragging rights to the other teachers of: “Look how well my students are!”.
If! There was ever a child that was not behaving! It was either the ruler, yard stick, thick paddle (Many a day! I saw many a yard stick break in half when in contact to the kids caboose!). Board of education to the seat of knowledge! “GOOD ONE!”
It’s not as easy today! To teach kids as it was way back then! Even back then. The teachers thought they had it tough!,
But! Because of the world and the society we live! Teachers are not the only one’s w/o sin! Parent(s) too are to blame as well! Genealogy! Has a lot to do with how our kids are raised as well.
When our parents were raised by their parents and so on. It does get past down to us in turn we pass it down to us as well.
It also affects the child’s behavior in class and their ability to learn as well.,
What our kids need! Is somehow for them to think of how this problem can be worked. Our school system is a combo of one big day care center, a human version of pc programing because that is what the school system really does rather than get kids to learn how to use their minds to the max!
I can remember in the 70’s! We were concerned about the environment of where our kids learned. Now! We are more concerned about the system itself!,
Us as parents want our kids to get a good education so that they can compete for jobs/careers. But! At the same time we do not want to open our pocketbooks to do that because of the (even) politics that come into play!
I remember this movie. When I was 8 yrs. old! When it came out I asked my mom about buying a 45 rpm of the song(s). She said “NO!”
Clearly! she did not care for them. Later she did buy me one 45 but it was that of George Martin and his instrumental versions of that boy & I love her. Then later she did buy me two 45’s. of the songs A Hard day’s night and the “B” side was I should have known better and the other And I love her and The “B” side was If I fell.
It was not until NBC decided to air the movie in primetime! I asked my mom if I could see it? Again! She said “NO”! It was not until cable came along that I did see it!
How many times have we either heard or said it ourselves? Someday I’ll do this/that! Start a business?
Who! Are we/they trying to impress/bs? Paraphrasing an old saying: “There are people who live their lives in the shadows of what they could be!”. Is this how we want our lives to be?
This is life! We only get a one time shot at it!
The most widely said thing I have heard from co-workers is: “Yeah! Man! I’m going to start my own business man!” I’m sure we have all heard that and others! As well as the sayings that go along with it!
Let’s take a look at starting a business. I have nothing against those who want to buy into a franchise! But! If you truly think about it! What are you really doing? You are buying yourself a JOB! The franchisor does not care if you make money! Or not! Because you are under contractual obligations to pay them! If! You don’t make it! Needless to say the other alternative!
Multi level marketing (MLM)! This is where you can run a business w/o the administrative expenses involved. But! You do have to read any & all of the fine print! There are some that concentrate on the recruitment of others than the selling of the product/service. I can tell you the many mlm’s I’ve been in! The “What they say vs. what they mean!” crap.
But! The main thing in starting a business and being successful that can separate you from the rest of the pack is this! “PASSION!” If you have passion! You can learn anything/everything keep in mind! It’s not what you learn! But how you learn! But if you like something! Then you are only going through the motions. If you love something then you are at the starting gate! Now! Push it through with passion!
