Momto2's 11:39 interview with the school student's (Brian Entin) observation of the coward sheriff deputy is a must see. Then read the replies and retweets. Especially, the one by William Newhouse, who thinks there is more to whole sordid tale.

BoE, I thought Trayvon Martin was North Dade county school kid, not Broward.

Momto2's 10:08 reminded me of a book Frederick read over the summer a few years back: "The Dog Who Could Fly". Takes place during WW2 and a Czech or Polish fighter pilot is shot down in France, finds this dog and keeps him, gets rescued and joins the RAF in England. Takes the dog on all his missions. Great book for kids or dog lovers.

Rain, rain, go away, Come back another day. Just a wet cold day here in the Hamptons. Next Saturday, its the NHL Winter Classic from Nav-Marine Corp Stadium at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. Maple Leafs v. Capitals. Wish I was there. I see where CNN has decided to provide moral support to Sheriff Israel and the Sheriff Department. Its all about guns not prevention, protection or process. And the media wonders why we consider them as corrupt as the politicians they protect.

Well, Clark is an asshole first then a grad of HBS and Princeton. BTW, in both institutions they do not teach simple facts of doing business with average Americans, you do not piss off more than half for the other dickheads that are a minority. Now, where is my case study I did?
Young Mr. Hogg should put his money where his mouth is an visit PR now. I am sure there are water deliveries and other things he could do to help out. This fucking jackwagon needs a come down now before he becomes the Left's version of Mother Teresa.
I will bet that Schiff and all the Dems know more Russian operatives than all the Republicans in Congress or the WH. Anyone want to take that bet? I see the NRA has decided to fight back and not only without gloves but against the failing Broward County Sheriff and his cowardly department. Popcorn worthy, I would think. And I agree with Ex. My first responsibility to me and my family is my action not 911's response.
Do you all find it beyond interesting that the left (including Brooksie)have all of sudden decided that their soul mates (teachers and their union) aren't responsible enough to handle a firearm and the consequence of using it? Talk about paradox. BTW, just completed my annual drive to hell and back by doing 511 miles from Roanoke Rapids to Southampton in 3 1/2 more hours than it took me to go 594 miles from Hammock to RR yesterday. The hell started, of course as we left the last exit to Fredericksburg (how appropriate, since he was my shotgun) and continued until we went through the Harbor Tunnel in Bald'more. From there all the way up the NJ turnpike fine but then the first, second and third ring of hell. The Goethels Bridge, Staten Island and then the Belt Parkway. Why I do this, I have no idea. But if you visit hell just hope you don't have to crawl through. Never again. Now I have to figure how to tell Mrs. JiB that:)
Long drive tomorrow. Different from today. Same miles but along the NE corridor. What took 9 hours today, even on a Saturday can take 12 hours tomorrow. So, slaap lekker, tot morgen. Stay safe and be nice. Cheers,
MM, China can't help the red lines but they do help the blue lines. What we control we gouge. What we don't we can't.
My only comment on this is that many a square root calculation has killed a lot of math students. https://pjmedia.com/parenting/student-faces-expulsion-saying-math-symbol-looks-like-gun/
MM, Sounds like the perfect replacement for the Broward County sheriff.
And like Hercules, he won't get any credit when he does it.
henry, Everyone's dance card is full and the invitations to the salon is still coming no matter what. It will requrire a Herculean effort to clean these stables out.
Yeah, but Janet, has kindness, welcoming and speaking to a kid like Cruz, never worked. I am with you and not with you on this. Just wondering how much accepting instead of rejecting may work. There has to be an answer beside shuffling these kids (not fault of their's) off to some mental institution or jail or a grave. I weep deeply for those who died but at the same time I am angry that we don't do enough for the Cruz kids who are out there. And believe me this is not the end at all. More to come. We need a Billy Graham for these crack baby, Fetal alcohol and acid babies. We cannot just reject them and wait for the disaster to ensue.

Tomorrow, Frederick and I leave our little piece of paradise for Long Island with our 3 beagles. I have to say, Mrs. JiB and her renovations are spectular although not fully completed. But being here is troubling since I may want to be here and not in Southampton. The weather was absolutely perfect. If it wasn't for Frederick and all his friends, classmates, team-mates on the football team, I'd be here and not in Southampton. There is nothing like sitting outside reading a book in shorts and a camp shirt after having a February swim in the pool:)

daddy & RalphL, I am also a military brat. 14 schools from 1st to 12th. I matured faster than any of my civvie buddies because I played basketball at the base gym with older airman. That and being around uniformed, disciplined people who had a military bearing. Wearing a gig line, making your bed and yes sir, no sir can work wonders on young men.

One of my associates in London was a West Point grad, helicopter pilot in Korea and all around tough ass gal. She and hubby, also WP, and a top planner, were assigned to the Crossrail project managing one of the tougher tunnel sections. They also adopted two Russian boys but they were babies at the time. I think they ended up having issues also that even being ex-military and pretty competent parenting didn't seem to work. Sooner or later, the forensics on Cruz will come out and as a society we are going to have to answer some tough questions on how we relate to one another because we don't know each other.

Well as I have postulated, he is either a crack baby or an acid one. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome works as well. I think I mentioned that Frederick has a former classmate and one time friend who was adopted (don't know if it was Russia but it was Eastern European), who tried to commit suicide. They pulled him from school and sent him to a troubled youth facility where he can get mental health help during his matriculation. A very moody but smart kid. Was on school crew team this year. Participated in National History Bee one year and won the school speech contest the next year. But there was something "chemical" that was destroying him.

Home schooling is accommodated in Florida via Virtual School. When Frederick was in Mother Seton, his computer teacher left for Virtual School. https://www.flvs.net/ Not specifically designed for home schooling but it can be used that way. Also, sites like Study.com and Khan Academy make it a lot easier for a non-education degreed mom or dad to do the schooling. In Florida, you can be homeschooled and play varsity sports for the high school in your district. Tim Tebow being the most visible example.

I believe Sundance at Conservative Treehouse lives in Coral Springs near Parkland in Broward county. I think that is why he was always one step ahead of everyone in the Trayvon Martin hijinks.

I would take that $300 million Schooooomer wants to protect voting from Russian hackers and earmark it specifically for improving security in our schools. Let's hear the howls on that. BTW, sbw's Congresswoman, Claudia Tenney is in the news for saying "that mass shooters become Democrats":)

daddy, The win was huge. How dare the American's interfere in the Nordic countries monopoly of nordic skiing? May be the best American moment. Wonder if they will visit the WH?

So, Pruitt is under fire for 1st class travel and now Shulkin at VA is on the rubber for his team's Euro travel expenses. Trump is having an unecessary influence on how his team travels. But then Rex and MadDog get special air travel, why not the other cabinet members? https://taskandpurpose.com/veterans-groups-rally-around-va-shulkin/?bsft_eid=be8299e8-a157-4c92-b5ad-b8d12dc9d992&utm_campaign=tp_daily_wednesday_pm&utm_source=blueshift&utm_medium=email&utm_content=tp_daily_pm_ricks&bsft_pid=e0bff0ba-0d19-469a-99aa-fe19ee16c5d0&bsft_clkid=ccf9562d-3074-4140-ad5b-00be55dc75ff&bsft_uid=12224174-715b-4df0-bae5-12d7d89554fd&bsft_mid=e0a9e413-6474-4b09-a1be-c73aea479273&bsft_pp=1
