I was a huge supporter of Obama because of his health insurance plan. And then we got stuck with "Obamacare" which is anything but affordable if you don't live in one of the big cities. My "insurance" is now three times as much as it was three years ago, and offers less. Four years ago I didn't have health insurance and I think I might go back to that.
So now I get to decide if I want to pay into my retirement plan or pay for insurance. OR, I can just not have health insurance and still pay a $695 fee. FUN TIMES. LOVE IT.
All of these questions about homeschooling are bringing a very dark question into my mind. I wonder after how many generations, the offspring of the fundies we follow will be functionally illiterate? The first generation moms had high school or even college degrees. We look at Jill Rodrigues and her homeschooling as an example of a second generation, which we can get some idea of her schooling ability by the way Nurie writes. Nurie homeschooling a large brood of her own terrifies me.
I worry about the exact same thing with the Rodrigues children. Someone once guessed that Nurie is writing at a 4rth grade level. I find that believable which is 4 years less education than the Amish! There is no way that is a functional adult level of education, not a snowballs chance in hell.
Oh y'all, I just can't with today's "men invented everything" post. This has got to be in the Lori Top Ten of Stupidity, (and she's just got to talk about a man's sex drive again).
Yeah...I just don't get it. What's the point? OK...men have more testosterone. No one is arguing that. Men have invented things. So have women. Maybe men have invented more things, because traditionally MEN limited WOMEN in the things they could do (especially when it come to academics.)
And again, what with the football reference. It seems Lori and Ken and always using football analogies and examples. Once a week (it was twice for Lori this week) one of them talks about football. Ken once said child birth was no big deal and men could handle the pain because "football" so they know pain.
Despite all of Lori's protestation, I don't know anyone who thinks men and women aren't different. Of course they are different. But what Lori is arguing is that makes men BETTER than women. No, Lori. It just means they are different. And it doesn't mean women wish they were men. I'm not jealous of my husband's or any other man's testosterone. And i am really GLAD I wasn't born with a penis between my legs. I can't even imagine how uncomfortable it is and all the adjusting and shifting one has to do as a matter of routine.
Why do cuticles get hard sometimes and hurt?
since time seems to move rapidly when I’m hitting the snooze or running late for work, or on lunch, and slows to a crawl while working it’s all perception. How do I change my perception to reverse that?
I am trying to teach myself to take micro naps with my eyes open ...it’s not working.
