Lara, you say Hispanics/Latinos will lead our country fairly & do a good job.....how are they doing in Mexico? They don't lead fairly & they are not doing a good job. Mexico has 2 classes, rich & poor, their crime is out of control & their corruption is worse. Thank God by the time that happens I will be none the wiser, either I will be dead & gone or I will be in a nursing home living in my ABH oblivion.

No....I'm perplexed too : )
There was some guy in Telferner that supposedly named twin girls Alley Way & Crazy Jingles.......I never laid eyes on them myself but my bff knew them.
$20 an hour up north ain't buying much. Typically their cost of living is higher than ours is down here. I hear the hourly pay at Cat isn't that great but the benefits are. And, if you don't have a job, wouldn't $9/hr beat the nothing you are currently making?
I would rather drive through Houston in rush hour traffic than drive from Victoria to Stockdale, it's safer & less frustrating......last weekend I lost another windshield in Cuero....2 in 1 year.
California is another country, wish it was on another continent.
What offends me about this article is her inability to wear sleeveless because of her judgemental friend Janet. It annoys me that people think just because you are of a certain age you shouldn't dress a certain way. I believe people should dress how they like, what makes them comfortable & feel good. I am a middle aged girl in my 40s, I hate sleeves, I have never liked sleeves, I feel constricted in shirts with sleeves. My arms my not be what they were in my 20s but then again, neither is my face or my legs & yet I'm not covering them up. It is my belief that those people who have such views as Janet, & I know some Janets myself, lack self confidence so they try to drag the rest of us into their rigid, rule infested, no white after labor day world. I will not go into that dark night, not without a fight. South Texas is way too hot to wear sleeves just to please a few judgemental people, who would find something else to disapprove of on my properly sleeved self.
People act like this behavior is something new.....it isn't, it just may be more pervasive with all the new technology, you can now torment others in front of a much wider audience. Its not just a kid problem either, it reaches way into adulthood, some people are just a***oles. You can't cure everyone so all you really can do is learn how to deal with them when you have to be around them. We as parents have to teach or kids how to cope with situations & scenarios such as these. That seems to be something that isn't being taught by parents these days, simple coping skills. As somebody said here, we should all be allowed to be ourselves, does that also apply to the bully? They are obviously being themselves....im not saying they should be that way, they really shouldn't, but the only person who can change them is them, obviously the parent hasn't been able to &/or created them that way..... we can't sit around waiting for someone to fix bullies or make them stop, all we can do is teach our kids not to be bullies & how to best handle them.
Wonder why this didn't make national news?
If coke & meth make one age prematurely, I'd be willing to bet synthetic coke has the same effects.....but I'm just assuming here. Jordan have you conducted a scientific study concerning long term effects of these synthetic drugs? I also enjoy how you are berating concerned parents demanding they be better parents.....I would love to meet yours as I assume, after reading your posts, that you were raised by wolves.
I don't believe I ever said anything about this 1 way or another. I think I wondered what the heck you were saying, as you really made no sense at all & I was trying to tell the other one that drugs do indeed age one prematurely.....that's it. As far as the rest of this goes, I really don't care. If the stuff is illegal then it should be confiscated and the people shouldn't have been selling it in their businesses. Unlike spray paint & glue & whatever else you people have tossed out, those products actually have a use other than to get high, whereas this stuff doesn't. I wouldn't want to bathe in synthetic cocaine, I'm not sure that would even be safe. As far as people being able to get this stuff online or in other cities, knock yourselves out, just as long as it is for your own consumption then I couldn't care less. Just make sure you secure it so no unsuspecting person comes across it & mistakes it for something else. Your indulgences are your business as long as they don't adversly affect someone else & then you must be willing to live with the consequences. That's my opinion.
