    Setting the 10th grade science teacher on fire beats my blowing up the garage at home with the chemistry set I got for Christmas when I was only 11 years old.

    Most major departments are partially open. Head Start received a 10 million donation for billionaire John Arnold to continue to operate.

    The bill the House offered up last week would have completely opened the FDA but was not accepted by Reid.

    Other programs were targeted that could have been avoided. But never the less while they were shut down the Kennedy Center still remains open. The show must go on!

    Get a life and don't nick-pic at everyone's post when you can't come up with a valid argument to support your views.
    Here's a valid argument then: maybe Cruz should be on Capitol Hill working toward a solution. You know, doing his job....

    My recollection, more than a week.

    Cruz was doing his job, seeing that just not veterans but all Americans have access to our country's memorials.

    Are you going to hold all of those Democrat members of Congress to the same standards last Tuesday who had no problem with the National Mall being closed to Americans but demanded that the National Mall be open to illegal aliens so they could DEMAND, not ask but DEMAND for amnesty, citizenship and free stuff.
    And they went further, instead of being inside the Capitol working towards a solution they rallied alongside with the illegal aliens on the closed National Mall.

    I would hold them to the same standards. It appears that you are using different standards depending on party.

He's as good or better a speaker as anyone the Dems can put forth, he doesn't have the neocon record to go after like 99% of Republicans, and he's more socially liberal than most Republicans. I think he and Senator Rubio are very serious threats to Democrats. Hillary can't hang with either of them in my opinion and we both know that Benghazi will blow up in her face. She's got nothing for that.
    LOL....are you being serious? Wow.....you guys keep trying that Benghazi B.S....it hasn't stuck the first 1459 times....what makes you guys think that 1460 will be the time? Rubio is DOA. There isn't a Republican out there that will pose even the slightest challenge to Hilary with the exception of Christie...but the GOP is so wacko that Christie doesn't stand a chance at getting the nod....unless the GOP wises up at kicks the teabaggers to the curb. Otherwise...this is a cakewalk for us in 2016

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.
    We had a teacher's strike and a downtown flood simultaneously in Minot ND back in 1968. There was no art teacher, so they made an all boys home ec. class for us. You couldn't get less than a C grade, even if you didn't participate.

    I learned how to sew, cook, and design square meals from the five (this was way before the food pyramid) basic food groups. Everything that I learned in that class has benefited me during my life.

    My brownies are to die for.
