Hello, everyone! I,m here to explore blogs and forum about the wonderful and most safe cure for (Zika Virus).
I was positive to the deadly virus called Zika and i lost hope because i was out casted and rejected even by my closet friends.

i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will hel me with the natural herbs from God!
after 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via DHL and it got to me after 3 days!

Re: “Are Vouchers Bad For Students Who Use Them?

We don't support school choice necessarily for the choices that are available now, we support if for the choices that will be available 20 years from now.

District schools are a dead end for children of color and poverty. An absolute dead end.

The percentage of parents rating their child's school an "A" plunged to a 47 year low and PhiDeltaKappa freaked out so bad they fired Gallup and quit asking the question in 2016. The percentage of teachers rating themselves "Very Satisfied" with the school they were teaching at fell to a 30 year low and MetLife quit dong the survey.

The productivity of US schools fell 15% to at least a 15 year low and perhaps a 40 year low in 2015.

We need infinite innovation to find out how to achieve the potential of these children.

School choice has been nothing but good for Arizona. We led the nation in combined reading and math scores from 2011 to 2015 and murders by juveniles have dropped from 70 in 1992 to 7 in the most recent FBI report (2012) - despite a tripling of the at-risk population.

Those school districts doing rigorous surveys of parents hit all-time high ratings in 2016.

Past time to open it up wide open.

Re: “Have Some Fun and Help Planned Parenthood Fight for Your Rights

Planned Parenthood detected cervical cancer in a young friend of mine who lacked insurance. So, sorta helped her family stay intact. Only 3% of their money goes toward providing abortion services.

Re: “Are Vouchers Bad For Students Who Use Them?

"A wave of new research has emerged suggesting that private school vouchers may harm students who receive them."

You don't say! Just as a new policy agenda is about to be implemented, there's a "wave" of research suggesting it should be blocked. What a complete surprise.

It would seem, David, that valid policy research should acknowledge that there are better and worse ways to frame a voucher program, and significant differences in the way these programs have been structured in the various states where they've been tried. Valid policy research might want to distinguish between systems where the private schools where vouchers can be applied require credentialing of the educators who staff their classrooms, for example, and systems where no such credentialing is required. Or it might want to note whether the state level departments of education in various states' voucher programs provide any kind of oversight or enforce any standards.

It turns out making valid education policy recommendations actually requires mastery of the details and the conditions on the ground in the educational systems in question. The condition of public school systems in Southern Arizona may not be the same as the condition of public schools in surrounding Portland, Oregon, or Minneapolis, Minnesota. Diocese of Tucson schools may not be the same as other diocesan systems throughout the nation. "Catch all" categories like "students using vouchers," which obliterate meaningful and significant differences between the characteristics of the systems the students in question are leaving when they "use a voucher" and the systems they are entering, are utterly useless as a basis for formulating policy.

So it comes down once again to what your real motive may be in writing this, as a die-hard Democratic party machine propagandist. Your motive, as you have shown many times in your various writings on vouchers, on charters, and on our largest local DISASTER of a public school district, is to keep the $$$$$ in the public district system that is interwoven with the Democratic party both locally and nationally.

So why not just say so?

Oh yeah, because "Adopt policies that benefit my party!!!" doesn't generally go over well with the masses you are trying to sheep-herd into your policy corral. Nevertheless, that is precisely what you are saying, over and over again in this sad little blog.

A fundraiser for Planned Parenthood that is being promoted as "Family Friendly?"

That takes a whole lot of chutzpah! Because as we all know not everybody winds up with a family.

Re: “Are Vouchers Bad For Students Who Use Them?

So you are saying that failing public schools are failing because of low income students? And then to top it off the public schools are fixing grades?

Re: “Sex Language

The logic of this article escapes me. It seems to be comparing contemporary slang English with "traditional Chinese". First, "traditional Chinese" is undefined: "Chinese" is not a language, but a family of languages. The article never states which Chinese language was used for translations. It seems unlikely that all Chinese languages use the same terms to refer to sex. If "traditional Chinese" means "classical Chinese", which is indeed used to refer to a single language, then it seems preposterous to compare words used in classical literary Chinese with contemporary English slang.

Moreover, it is surprising these days to find an article that is unaware, or ignores, the obvious fact that perception of vulgarity is subjective: based on social and personal tastes. The terms the author finds poetic might be offensive to others, while terms like "cock" and "pussy" - which are simply animal metaphors, based on physical appearance - do not bring to my mind the violent negative connotations mentioned here.

Try this experiment: learn a few slang Cantonese sex terms, then ask a Cantonese-speaking journalist if those words are vulgar or melodic - you may be surprised.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

How about the fact the the home ownership rate was low because Bush's buddies threw millions out of their homes when they couldn't find jobs... seriously, economic recovery was better under W? That's when he and his pals took the entire world economy down. And Gahdaffi was a mistake? What about the longest running war ever that Obama inherited from Cheney and the gang? And that other little war that was actually justified... in Afghanistan... and who took out Georde Sr's buddy, Bin Laden? with actual police work instead of invading two more countries that were not connected... your hatred of Obama is irrational, based on the facts...

That's according to the U.S. Dept. of the Treasury, but what do they know? Whether or not it was more than all U.S. presidents combined is a moot point. He did what he did. At least you had the cojones to challenge me,

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

He didnt add more to the debt than all the past presidents combined if you adjust the debt increases by every president for inflation. You cant logically compare spending in the single thousands of dollars spent 200 years ago to today.
