Febby News Links

Jacksonville starts off February with typical stupidity, by removing the spokesman of public schools for calling her own husband a "redneck". More accurately - because a black employee complained about calling someone a redneck being insensitive towards minorities.

Also Chunk Hagel apparently is still a good choice for leading our military even though refused to give "yes or no" answers to question, such as his policy on Iraq. How is this change from the people Bush appointed>? Why do we let people off not answering the question? Seriously if the answer is so bad we really ought to know about it. Do we want someone who cant openly speak of his own actions as a leader?

Also in the news Washington state is looking to require schools to actually fail kids who fail. Read that again. Why are we letting kids graduate who dont know the material? I say schools who let kids progress who dont know the material are robbing those kids of their right to an education.

At a certain stage the realization strikes through that one must either live outside of society's bonds or die of absolute boredom. There is no future or freedom in the circumscribed life and the only other life is complete rejection of the rules. There is no longer room for the soldier of fortune or the gentleman adventurer who can live both within and outside of society. Today it is all or nothing. To save my own sanity I chose the nothing.
