    Back during that era, during the 7th and 8th grade all boys were required to take two years of shop classes and girls two years of home economics.

    You know what, she was right, most boys didn't know how to properly cook a hot dog.
    Dropping Home Ecnomics for girls is now hitting home. Since many of today's girls had moms who didn't learn the basics of cooking, sewing, etc, they are unable to teach their daughters. I am a volunteer who teaches bread baking, and home canning, dehydrating, etc, of fruits, vegetables and everything else we eat, and my classess are getting larger all the time. The interest is there because of the fear of what the future may bring, but they don't know what to do. Today's emphasis seems to be on classes that prepare kids for college, which is fine, but we still have to eat! Those women are so grateful to learn that it makes me wonder who ever made the decision to drop Home Economics :

    Greetings, APACHERAT.

    When I was in high school, we had a class called "Bachelor Survival" - basically a P.C. version of Home Ec. for guys. I remember attempting an angel food cake from scratch that turned out tasting like corn bread. The psychological scars remain to this day.

    Obama is suppose to be the Cn'C of our military and I didn't see him yesterday removing the barricades and carrying them over to his crib at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    BTW. Saraha Palin was just not a better Cn'C than Obama, but Palin had higher approval ratings from the troops as Cn'C than Obama ever had.
    Obama could not have been tossing over barricades, fist of all because he would be personally opening a closed section of the federal government, second of all because he has bigger things to do than hang out at the war memorial. Sarah Palin and Obama cannot even be compared, cool, she visited her Guard troops 2007, FROM ALASKA. Obama cannot possibly meet with every individual state's guard. People are always going to have a higher approval rating back home than in Washington. Hooray for Palin, the thrower of barricades and the hero of the Alaskan guard.

    well, nice attempt, but I think that the majority of Democrats are equally pathetic. They just have not warranted that criticism in this thread.

    Did I say somewhere that the politicians should have been involved with Trayvon Martin? Why would you bring that up? It has nothing to do with what is going on.

    When you want corn bread in the future, you'll know how to make it, and it goes great wih chili! See how much fun learning can be?

    Cruz, another chickenhawk conservative, pretending to care about veterans while he plots to take away their benefits.

    It's such perfect teabaggery.
