    Hurricane Florence has been downgraded from the largest size 4 storm ever recorded, to a measily cat. 2 storm.

    President trump, reknown over the whole planet as one of the greatest hurricane fighters ever explained: “I’ve got the bestest team in the galaxy using the most modern... I can’t tell you what for security’s sake... but believe me, they’re modern, so modern. And I told them ‘You best that storm! I want a small one. So small it fits in my hand.’ Anyway, so using our modernest, made in the US. USA. USA. There is no collusion. Fake news. We won. Best storm fighters ever!”

    Don't you think it takes a very disturbed person to fly a plane full of screaming people into building?

    A newbie posts an innocuous opinion, alone, at night. A lurking viper tears into him, accuses him of being an ignorant, lying, racist, misogynist, troll. When questioned about her motives, she says, "He was there, it was easy to do him."

    So, what's your excuse? Choice or uncontrollable compulsion?

    Does the equivocating, philo-sophistical, smugly urban-doctionary-quoting, dotrinaire meta-troller troller, JS357, realize that by starting a thread which draws troller trollers like perverts to pretty 12-year-old girls' dirty gym socks, he is only encouraging such ambivalent behavior? And that if they were fathers walking their babies in prams, they'd be stroller trollers???

    Fund schools so that bullies and bad behaviour does not set the agenda where kids aught to be learning. That means more teachers, smaller class sizes. Make sure the schools are resourced with current text books and or access to technology and again the ratio of teachers to students that will change the culture of non learning and demoralised attendance. And spend good money on good food in the canteens and make sure that every kid has good nutrients on board an is not full of sugar and salt and make the food available subsidised to the level that the kids can afford. Kids got nothing, subsidize at 100% And none of that soup in a can rubbish.

    And lastly stop trying to run schools like a business where educators have to meet kpi's against standardized testing. Teachers have to be given trust. The teaching profession on the ground must be empowered to find the solutions for their schools. Not some board imposed fud that has nothing to do with anything.

    Because at the end of the day, kids are still that. Kids. And if your school policy says hand in your device at the start of school and here it is for you at the end of the school, the kids will learn. And have a rapid removal squad. Kid wants to disrupt the lesson, because their issues are larger than their ability to self regulate, then have a process of removal and allow the rest of the class to get on with it.

    More of the same of the old solutions will not change anything.

    Now it's your turn Dims. Why should we believe Ford?
    You believe Kavanaugh because it serves your political interests to do so.

    You expect the other side to automatically believe Ford because it would serve their political interests to do so.

    I'd prefer to wait to hear their testimony.

    "I regard Ghost of a Duke as deeply morally reprehensible in many ways."

    Coming from someone who respects the courage of terrorists and cherrypicks which sexual predators to condemn (based on race and nationality), I take that as a compliment. As I say, you are fundamentally broken as a person.

    I guess somebody has to spell it out for you. Your posts routinely reap thumbs down because most of what you post is fatuous, or uninteresting, or misinformed (viz. definition of “snowflake” ), or all three.

    Some people here are easy to troll. That is, they are easily triggered to “come out from under the bridge” and respond in a particular and predictable way. This, apparently unknown to them, detracts from any point they might have to make. Shall I name names, or is this post sufficient?
