This person should be banned from having any more pets. A dog is a member of the family. It should not be left "chained to the back porch" when you go to work. The poor animal is probably better off dead than living with this irresponsible imbecile.

If enough parents opt their children out of these tests, the tests will recede.
Hint: Anytime one reads a quote from an educational expert (?), one can assume that that expert never attended public schools or probably even a public university, and definitely NEVER was a classroom teacher. Tom Ridge, former governor of PA., was a CLASSIC example of a (republican0 politician who steadfastly supported all sorts of 'reforms,' basically aimed at diminishing the political power of Teachers' unions; Mr Ridge had never attended public ed facilities nor taught anything.
Another ALL STAR on this team is former PA (republican) senator Rick Santorum, who was using PA educations funds to home school his kids in Virginia. Of course, Santorum's genius, as previously noted here and elsewhere, extends FAR BEYOND the simple management of public schools to all social ad political subjects; presumptive nominee for (republican0 presidential ticket.

Wildly amusing story about the former speaker who TWICE required house members to vote on the sanctity of marriage act (failed)
It's just pitiful that republicans want the 'moral' high ground and keep having to bail themselves out of situations such as this----------------------------------------------------------------------nest c-est pas?

Missouri- a place for business owners who don't want to be bothered with...PEOPLE! However, if you really don't need money and you're the especially hardy type that will never get sick or need a vacation and thinks retirement is overrated, then this is the place for you!

Yes, then the Browns, then Canada, and finally ysu where his college coach can find him a job, perhaps in charge of inflating/deflating footballs.

Very disturbing-A republican concerned about child safety as opposed to more pressing concerns likeDriving down wages, increasing taxes on working families and steadily increasing college and university tuition till it's basically impossible to pay. The Ohio house majority has done an excellent job on these issues over the past 20 years, nest ce-pas?

The citizens of Struthers will elect exactly the sort of politicians required to meet public expectations. The primary has (only) two candidates; it must be safe to assume that any other citizen was disinterested or satisfied with their choice in the race.
Cynicism, apathy, and a lack of knowledge are part of the political landscape in Struthers and throughout much of the larger community surrounding it.Nest ce-pas?

Petroleum and gas are sold on world markets; that includes oil and gas from underground in the US.
The people who control the 'price' of oil and gas are known, collectively, as Saudi Arabia. When the Saudis determined that interests in the US were drilling on a serious basis, they simply created a free fall by charging less/per barrel, which motivated US oil interests to stop since it would be 'unprofitable' to continue.
Recession? Perhaps locally- on a national basis, unlikely. The dollars not spent on transportation by individuals can be spent in other sectors of the economy, or saved or invested.

Disarray would be the appropriate term.
