consequence was she was taken out into the hall and paddled with a wood paddle. We could all hear her screaming and crying, the whole school could in fact. Maybe corporate punishment should be reintroduced?

Thanks for calling in. I enjoyed the banter!
Still think I'm right though - but different opinions are what make the world go round!

Nice try, but as I said, where in the EO does it "tell schools not to discipline black students for bad behaviour"?
The answer is that it doesn't.
Do black kids get a fair shake in the progressive-liberal school system?
Do I think it is wrong for the president to address the issue?
Do I agree with his solution?
I agree, my most oft foe. ( )
We need to look at the problem. Obama's "solution" addresses one of the symptoms. NOT the problem.
There is a growing concern with black youths in todays society. I blame government and entitlement mentality for much of it.
A nice Cheerios advertisement whose only discernible difference from other Cheerios commercials is that it depicts an interracial family was forced to disable its YouTube comments section today after it became inundated with virulent racism.
Despite the hate, Camille Gibson, vice president of marketing for Cheerios, told us in a statement, "Consumers have responded positively to our new Cheerios ad. At Cheerios, we know there are many kinds of families and we celebrate them all."
We(collectively) have lost the ability and desire to take care of our own. We have abdicated so much of our individual responsibility to government that when government steps in to correct the issue (no matter how poorly) we complain, but where in the hell were we when the issue initiated?
A solution might be to take back that initial responsibility from the government and return it to families and neighborhoods where it rightly belongs.
FORCE people to take care of their children.
FORCE people to be responsible for their child's education.
FORCE people to be responsible.
-And that, good sir, is about the most honest answer I can and have ever provided.

Speaking of unruly black students, what is being done to those animals that attacked the boy on the the bus? Surely Obama won't speak out on this...edit on 9-8-2013 by ButterCookie because: (no reason given)

Hand up... who here actually read the order?
Yep rather clear right here:
However, substantial obstacles to equal educational opportunity still remain in America's educational system. African Americans lack equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools, and challenging college-preparatory classes, and they disproportionately experience school discipline and referrals to special education.
Clearly says it there.
AA's are 'unfairly' disciplined that is a 'substantial obstacle' for not 'achieving' academic excellence.
This is classic Obama and his party someone always keeping them down always someone else 'fault'.

I wasn't aware I needed to do your reading for you.
Sorry I missed the party. I didn't get home in time to jump in. I wish there was a podcast so I could listen to last nights show but it sounds like you nailed it. Nice job!
I am playing ATS live now...I am going to try to call in...looks like this thread will be the first topic of hour 2.
