ewww. The thought. I detest that behavior. What does God say? "A man that doesn't work, doesn't eat". That also means WOman. That's why so many people from other countries come here and prosper really well. Because where they're from, they don't have "help". If you are born with 1 leg and blind as a bat, you will sit your behind on the side of the road, selling or doing SOMETHING to feed your family. And that struggle will make ANY child thirsty enough to go get an education and do 10 times as much with a healthy mind and body. And then they in turn, take care of their parents. My grandparents were share croppers. And I would go to the field with them as a child to pick whatever. Know what that taught me? Stay my butt in school, be respectful to people, work for what you need and want. I was so tired by the end of the summer, I ended up earning a scholarship at 17. I knew then that I had to create choices for myself, or I would be tired for the rest of my life.

Gambling on land is against the law. So, unless there is something built on a body of water near Albany, they won't do it.

Wow Cartman. Soooo, Sylvester Stallone was a thief and a thug, and Madonna, my white and black 10-year old students coming from dance class, my 80-year old neighbor walking with her husband on a Saturday morning, my German shepard and me going for a 2-miler? We're thugs? I don't steal. I work for everything that I have. I did it in the military-(54Bravo-Chemical Corps....HUUUUURRAAAAAHHH), and now I'm doing it the classroom. I work my butt off, and I should able to wear what I want (very decently, I might add) without anyone assuming that I am here to rip them off or I am living off the system! Oh my God! We're taxpayers as well! I personally think food stamps should only be used for the elderly, for real. But that's just me. But all of us are not CRIMINALS, THUGS, or WHORES!!!! We are taxpayers, vacationers, professionals, nurses, business owners, church goers, doctors, homeowners, and soldiers. And by the way, the REAL criminals don't look like criminals. ENRON!

No they don't. Not at all. There are some honest, hardworking teachers and leaders in DCSS...White, Black, Spanish, and Asian. One doesn't represent all. That's why God judges us individually. And everything will come out in the wash. (Minorities...wow)

When I was in high school, I had 2 choices. They were college or military. And we couldn't afford cash tuition. So I applied for scholarships. Whatever it was! We called the schools, asked about their scholarships and criteria, and met them academically. When one scholarship was about to run out, I applied for another...while in school. So between working, small grants, and partial scholarships, you can do it. There is money out there for education. It just has to be important enough to that young person to find it and work for it. I thank God I had that opportunity; because MY education is MY responsibility.

Full or whole simply means same mom and dad. But the squawker is saying, any baby SHE gave birth to is regarded as whole siblings. And that is to be respected. I technically have 'step-children'...but I don't call them that. They are my children as well. So when they visit, they are treated and loved like my own.
