Hell, I could have told you that!

Asking kids to sit still for an hour at a time is un-natural, unhealthy, and unproductive.

Fidgeting is a real problem. It is a strong indicator that children are not getting enough movement throughout the day. We need to fix the underlying issue. Recess times need to be extended and kids should be playing outside as soon as they get home from school. Twenty minutes of movement a day is not enough! They need hours of play outdoors in order to establish a healthy sensory system and to support higher-level attention and learning in the classroom.

I think that most kids, boys especially would learn better with less time in the classroom and more time outside.  What good is an hour in the classroom if half of it is wasted by a kid who cannot pay attention because we're forcing them to stunt their growth and their instincts?

Gah....

Sorry, I'm busy.  Have a post that I stole from here:

She gets WHAT?

Can someone please explain to me just how and why Chelsea Clinton gets $75,000 PER SPEECH?

Are you fucking kidding me?

Just what the hell has Chelsea Clinton done to deserve $75k to open her over-priviledged yap? Can anyone point to one thing she's done?

ANYTHING?

The only thing that makes Chelsea special is that Bill managed to get high enough on cocaine to lay the pipe to Hillary at least once, and they spawned.  That's it.  That's Chelsea's big achievement, and she really wasn't even involved in it.  Other than that, this is just more proof that the Left is so infatuated with their Marxist gods and goddesses that even being related to a ProgNazi deity is enough to get you paid.

Does George Bush's daughters get paid $75k to give a speech?  Hell, do they even go around giving speeches?

Oh by the way, that $75k per speech is more than I make in ONE YEAR.  I don't EVER want to hear the Left cry about the 1% when they give the Clintons a tongue bath at every opportunity.  Fucking hypocrites.

Another busy day today


So here's another NSFW throw-away post.

It's always worse

Every time you learn more about how badly Obama has fucked things up, it always gets worse.

While the policy process in Washington was frozen, U.S. intelligence analysts still filed their warnings about major weaknesses in Iraq’s military. Both the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency have issued reported analysis for nearly a year warning that Iraq’s military would not be able to stand up against a sustained campaign from ISIS.

So this weak, gutless, pathetic piece of shit in the Oval Office has been warned over and over for years about ISIS, and did nothing.  NOTHING!

Obama has thrown away every sacrifice made in Iraq.  And he did it because he's too pathetic to do anything else.

The Evil of Obamacare

I won't go into how the National Organization for (Liberal) Women put the Little Sisters of the Poor on their "Dirty 100" list.

I will simply state that any law which refuses to recognize Catholic Nuns as a "religious employer" because they employ and minister to non-Catholics isn't just stupid, it is evil, and it is designed to be so.

Inexcusable

There is absolutely no reason why I should be up this early.

New pair of Docs

I have horrible feet when it comes to buying shoes.  A high instep, high arch, tall feet, the only normal thing about my feet is that I'm a 10 ½ regular.  But couple a normal size with all the other characteristics, and I can't find decent shoes to save my life.  I'll shop for days just to get a pair of running shoes, because if they don't fit just right I'll be hobbled after I use them.

Anyways, I had a pair of Dr. Marten's sandals that the Ragin' Mrs. and gotten for me back when we were stationed in Puerto Rico.  So we're talking seven or eight years ago.  And these poor sandals are just beat to hell by now; stitching coming out, leather peeling from the foot-bed, sole worn smooth and flat, just plain worn out.

I've been shopping for a new pair of sandals for about two weeks, trying to find a pair that didn't pinch my feet at the wrong spot, and give me enough arch support, and so on and so forth.  We finally just went to the Dr. Marten's store in Santa Monica so I could try on another pair.  And I found the perfect pair, after two weeks of searching!  They fit, they feel good, they don't do weird things to my gait, and I bought 'em and walked out of the store with them on my feet.  And the crowd sang Hallelujah!

Now, we had a seminarian with us that day; he's going through training with our church, and the Bishop wanted him to get out and about, so he came with us.  He's wearing his cassock, and his collar, and we're walking around Santa Monica together after I got my sandals.  We pass buy a group of people who are evangelizing in the middle of the Third Street Promenade, and all of the sudden my  red alert siren goes off in my head.  I look closer, and all those folks handing out pamphlets asking if you know your creator?  Muslims.  They're talking about the Koran, and Allah this and Allah that, and they are all staring at this young man in his collar and cassock with contempt and hatred in their eyes.

I looked at this young man, who was also recognizing just what was going on and said "Abbé, I think we may want to pick it up a step."

I never expected Muslims to be out there like Jehovah's Witnesses, but there they were.  And they were NOT happy to see a traditional Catholic walking around.  Hell, we didn't even get that much of a stink-eye from the flaming homosexual guy at the Dr. Marten's store.

But anyway, there we go.  How's your weekend going?
