Re: “Anna Elena Worley

Having appeared before this "Judge" with numerous complaints against the defendant, this judge don't gives a rat's butt about fairness, justice, or equal protection under the law; she does not look out for the best interest of children. She is reluctant or too timid to rule against a mother, even if that mother shows that she is unfit and psychological challenge. She is sexist against men, and racist against black males, and it shows in her rulings. She is not an unbiased and objective judge. She is "Lady Justice" with a torn blindfold ... peeking to see who she will baisley favor or disfavor. I don't believe she has children, therefore, she can not relate to a parent that is trying to protect the best interest of his children. I have had many dealing with this judge attempting the safegard the best interest of my children, and she get's a gentlemanly "D" for a grade from my vintage point.

Oh look, who could have predicted that Peterson was a right-wing stooge?

Re: “What the Recent Backlash Against Kehinde Wiley’s Work at NCMA Gets Wrong About Art’s Past and Present

What would be really shocking is if all this bullshit would just stop. Two wrongs dont make anything alright. Violence is violence- take skin color out of it. Dont try to justify it by saying its somehow justifiable for any race to behead any other race. This authors narrative is ignorant to the path we should be trying to navigate. The punishment of a fathers sins should not be inherited by his son.

Also, stop saying the white man had slaves. That in itself is racist. The majority of white men in America did not own slaves. In fact the majority of white men where against slavery. Only the truly ignorant and greedy believed that the color of ones skin defines them.

Beheading anyone doesnt make you heroic! It makes you violent, and it makes you a terrorist. Depicting it makes you an accomplice. There is no justification.

As mentioned above, this work hung for years without anyone saying anything. He wasnt really mainstream until the president picked him to do his portrait.

As for the painting itself, its not that good in my opinion. I have seen better portraits on Instagram. So I dont feel this artist was picked because of his skill. He was picked because of the message he weaves into the body of work that makes his brand. Part of which is people beheading other people in order to rise above their victim.

Doesnt matter the color of the victim, its wrong.

Stop justifying it.

The GOP no longer has any principles whatsoever. None. The ends (power and money) justify any and all means.

Re: “Breaking: Nancy Errichetti, Head of the Montessori School of Raleigh, Arrested for Allegedly Aiding and Abetting Sexual Abuse

In the Montessori School of Raleigh Defendants' Answer and Affirmative Defenses to the 18 CVS 000702 case in Superior Court of North Carolina in Wake County to the Plaintiff:

a couple of Defenses potentially reveal 'the verifiable evidence, the whole verifiable evidence, and nothing but the verifiable evidence'

by citing an undisputed fact that Plaintiff's were negligent in reporting alleged abuse to Government (vs Corporate MSR) Authorities [CPS, Police, etc.] which places substantial Doubt upon the credibility of Plaintiffs as well as integrity of said Authorities to competently conduct a thorough investigation or hold all violators duly accountable

- which is reminiscent of the history of the 17 CVS 14473 case.

However, when either Litigant request/cites constitutional requirements/or demands a Trial by Jury and Due Process in the United States of America, the Credibility of the American Government is at stake when failing to adhere to the United States Constitution and Amendments V, VI, VII, & XIV ... "in the best interest of the minor children".

Re: “Montessori School of Raleigh Directress Says She Was Fired for Talking to the Cops About Sexual Abuse at the School

Ingrid - the facts are coming out, you're right. But they don't support your assertions, sorry to say. Too many current, former staff, alumni, parents and more say otherwise. This Board is not an all-volunteer Board. A number of them derive specific personal benefit for their children through their board service, and their decision making proves that. They have not acted as a strong or healthy Board should in this situation. The interim Head seems like a nice person, and may be a good interim head. I would say she's not qualified for a permanent Head position, given her time away and her prior head service being limited to a very small class size, age 14-18 girls only school. But she may do fine as interim at MSR, and it's good to see some action on this front - we certainly wish her well. But please don't try to say what happened at MSR didn't happen, or that some mysterious set of facts exonerates Nancy or others in admin or Board who are complicit.

Re: “As Raleigh’s Housing Crisis Worsens, Its Housing Authority Is Having Trouble Convincing Landlords to Participate in Its Section 8 Program

Seems like the red tape and bureaucracy needs to be cut down considerably, both for the landlords and the renters.
And 42,000 a year seems a little high to me for section 8.

At least people are finally starting to open up about their desire for open borders. Although I would argue we already have an open border policy. Or at least an if you can make it in you get to stay policy.

Re: “Javiera Caballero Wants One Durham City Council Meeting to Be in Spanish, So English-Speakers Know What It’s Like

Mr Guy. Thank you for your supreme grammar grading skills. I would note that speaking english(note the lower case e) and having perfect writing skills are different things. And I've always been garbage at grammar(note the and at the beginning of the sentence, I'm sure some kind of sentence structure no no) which is why I have a BS in mechanical engineering. But thanks for helping me re-live middle school english class, it was rejuvenating.

Re: “Javiera Caballero Wants One Durham City Council Meeting to Be in Spanish, So English-Speakers Know What It’s Like

Perhaps I was not direct enough.

Your point was that it was important that new immigrants learn to speak English as you believed it would help them assimilate. You had their best interests at heart and were welcoming of the new community members and wanted the best for them, so you suggested English lessons.

My response to your content was that you spoke English poorly and you could also benefit from the English classes you were proposing for recent immigrants. To support my point that you could improve your English skills, I went through your eight sentence submission and highlighted the many grammatical and spelling errors.

I had hoped you would recognize your own failings as an American to speak English correctly and would extend a degree of understanding to those who also do not speak English well but don't have your years of primary school education we provide in the US.

Mr Guy. Thank you for grading my comment. Although that was a lot of time spent to not address the content.
Oh, excuse me. You did claim that the US was the cause of the problems of central and south america. I believe that also, in fact, the poverty of the entirety of the world is caused by the US.

And Vidvis, Thank you, accusations of racism are always welcome. It shows the overwhelming intellectual veracity of your argument.

Re: “Montessori School of Raleigh Directress Says She Was Fired for Talking to the Cops About Sexual Abuse at the School

I just read this salacious thread for the first time and unfortunately found it to be overflowing with misleading information and a selective versions of events.

I am a long-time parent and supporter of MSR and am looking forward to the 2018-19 school year. I know many other parents who share my enthusiasm and commitment.

Our new interim Head of School sounds like a nice fit for our current needs, and our volunteer Board of Trustees and hard-working administration continue to graciously and patiently shepherd us through this overcast time. They do this in spite of the half-truths, outright lies, and ugliness on display here, as told by opportunistic individuals who claim to love the school and community. These people claim to be MSR loyalists, yet their words seem instead intended to destroy, exploit, discredit and sabotage the institution and its brave foot soldiers (teachers, staff, board) who are actually doing the preserving work - putting in countless, and I'm sure often thankless, hours and hours.

These saboteurs will not succeed! The loud, squeaky people often get the grease, but in this situation the volume of their vitriol is not in proportion to the number of people behind it. I don't believe history will be on their side as this all plays out, and as more FACTS are released about the Nick Smith allegations as they relate to MSR's involvement.

To any new families looking for a special and wonderful education, please still consider MSR! I promise you the school's mission statement of developing agile thinkers, poised communicators and gracious collaborators REALLY DOES EXIST and IS IN PRACTICE. The previous negative comments on this thread are not representative of our community as a whole. Not even close.
