7 thoughts on “Super Bowl Sunday.

  1. So true. I saw somewhere that the NFL had a contract with the US Army to promote/stage those heartwarming reunions between servicemen and their families. So this would be in thew same vain but worse.

  2. What the hell is this? It’s the same crap the right is subjected to when the Hollywood awards shows are politicized. Same crap, but libs don’t like the medicine they are prescribed. Take your meds like a good sore loser!

      • Loved Lady Gaga’s performance! She stayed non political. Just what I and millions of Americans hoped for. Are you sorry to see that there wasn’t any protests that interrupted the game?

      • She was okay. I watched the clip of Lady Gaga later. She’s good, but sort of a Madonna rip-off. I didn’t watch the game. Sounded like a major choke by Atlanta. We rented Captain Fantastic. It was pretty good. Political statements by Hollywood celebrities and football players are fine with me. I was happy that at the same time as the Super Bowl, a large group of protesters were in front of Trumps Florida home.

    As of 5:07 am Feb. 7, 2017 , The Devos ,U S Senate debate, continues. The Devos confirmation might be denied. If so, the next nominee will still seek to carry out the agenda of the President, Congress, and a the Courts. Therefore, the support for public schools will still be a worthy challenge.

    Public schools are vital for all the people. Do all you can to support public school education.

    Yours in Education,

    BETSY DEVOS WILL LIKELY BE THE NEXT SEC. OF EDUCATION. IF SHE FAILS TO GET A SENATE CONFIRMATION, PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL USE A RECESS APPOINTMENT TO GIVE HER THE CABINET POSITION. WITH THIS LIKELIHOOD, SUPPORTERS OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS NEED TO WORK AT THE STATE AND LOCAL LEVELS TO PROTECT, PROMOTE, AND KEEP VIBRANT OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. IN THAT ROLE, WE, THE PEOPLE, MUST USE THE FEDERAL ESSA ACT (PROVIDING IT STAYS AS AN ACT) TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY AND SUCCESS FOR ALL STUDENTS IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THE “AGENDA” OF THE REPUBLICAN LED CONGRESS AND THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH IS THE STATED GOAL OF “STATES RIGHTS” (I. E. THE 10TH AMENDMENT) IN MOST DOMESTIC MATTERS.

    YOURS IN EDUCATION,

    PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE IMPORTANT. PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS REQUIRED.

    SUPPORT MUST BE AT THE LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL LEVELS. PUBLIC SCHOOL SUPPORT IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS IS A CHALLENGE (see attach summary of public remarks, this writer, made to Illinois Governor Rauner at his presentation to teachers in Ottawa , Illinois on June 6, 2016) AS IT IS IN EVERY U. S. STATE.

    EDUCATION IS A GOOD INVESTMENT.

    Yours in education,

    SUMMARY (statement made to Gov. Rauner at his presentation to teachers 06-06-2016)

    NOTE:( upon called on by Gov. Rauner, I addressed the Governor, this summary was compiled by me the next day 06-07-2016)

    I AM DR. CHARLES BIRCH FROM MORRIS , ILLINOIS. I JUST COMPLETED MY 50TH YEAR AS A PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER. ( GOV RAUNER SAYS “CONGRATULATIONS) I AM A STRONG PROPONENT OF FREE PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION. I CALL ON YOU TO BE AN EDUCATION GOVERNOR. AS A GRADUATE OF CATHOLIC GRADE SCHOOL AND CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL , I HAVE NO OBJECTION TO THE EXISTENCE OF PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS. HOWEVER, I AM AGAINST PUBLIC TAX FUNDING OF PRIVATE SCHOOLS (I.E.VOUCHERS). I STAND OPPOSED TO CHARTER SCHOOLS THAT ARE PRIVATELY FUNDED AS WELL AS PUBLIC TAX SUPPORTED. I AM QUITE FAMILIAR WITH A GRAYS LAKE CHARTER SCHOOL THAT DRAWS PUBLIC MONEY AND HAS HAD SEVERAL COURT DECISIONS THAT RULED THAT THE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND HAS BEEN SERIOUSLY QUESTIONED. ONLY BY CONTINUED APPEALS HAS THE SCHOOL REMAINED OPEN.

    IT TAKES TAX DOLLARS TO RUN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. FOUR OF MY GRAND CHILDREN ATTENDED ROUND LAKE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. FOR A TIME , DUE TO THE LACK OF DISTRICT REVENUE, THE STATE OF ILLINOIS TOOK OVER THE DISTRICT. IT TAKES MONEY TO FUND PUBLIC SCHOOLS. IF PAPER MONEY HAD BEEN SENT, ROOF LEAKS IN THE ROUND LAKE SCHOOLS COULD HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED.

    BORN AND RAISED IN WISCONSIN, MY FIRST TWO AND HALF TEACHING YEARS WERE SPENT TEACHING IN THE ONALASKA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. GOV WALKER’S EDUCATION POLICIES HAVE NEGATIVELY IMPACTED PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THE ELIMINATION OF COLLECTIVE BARGAINING FOR WAGES AND LEAVING BARGAINING TO THINGS LIKE CLASS SIZE AND THE COLOR OF TEXTBOOKS IS DETRIMENTAL TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

    YES, IT TAKES TAX DOLLARS TO FUND PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION. THE STATE OF ILLINOIS NEEDS TO HAVE A GRADUATED INCOME TAX TO PROVIDE THE NECESSARY MONETARY FUNDS FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. I CALL ON YOU TO BE AN EDUCATION GOVERNOR. THANK YOU

    GOV RESPONSE: “YOU COVERED SOME VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES. I WILL ADDRESS SOME OF THEM. AS REGARDS YOUR CHARTER SCHOOL OPPOSITION. I COULD RESPOND DIFFERENTLY . . . “

    NOTES RE GOV ADDRESS: GOV BLAMES THE PROBLEMS WITH ILLINOIS PUBLIC SCHOOLS ON THE CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND ALL BLAME DIRECTED AT ILL HOUSER SPEAKER MIKE MADIGAN AND THE “DEMOCRATIC MACHINE”. HE REPEATED HIS KEY FOCUS FROM HIS INITIAL REMARKS, THAT, WHAT HAS TO BE DONE IS TO DEFEAT THE CHICAGO DEMOCRATIC MACHINE AND ELECT REPRESENTATIVES THAT SUPPORT THE TURN AROUND AGENDA.
