Re: “Pinned Down

I was also at Cleo Wallace ..back in the 80's. I was a runaway child, I ran away from an abusive counselor at the time talked me into choosing this place ( I had a choice between this place and a workforce type place..I had chosen the workforce place, but was told I would like this place better) in the end I was at Cleo Wallace. I was already a shy child, I had problems communicating with people, upon arrival they put me on something called social isolation (because of my history of running away) I had no problem with being isolated as I was very shy anyway..but a part of the social isolation was that I had to sit in a hard chair facing a wall 8 hours out of my day insure I was not talking to anyone.. I could leave the chair to eat, and to join group where I could speak to others. If anyone walked by and talked to me while I was in this chair, this was seen as an aggressive act in my treatment, my chair would be taken from me, and I would have to sit on the floor.. if I tried to talk to the staff to tell them I didnt try to talk..I was thrown to the several adults climbing on top of me. The first time I fought back, as I felt I couldnt breath. The next two times I went limp right away so they would stop. There was a male staff member who would press himself into me..I could tell he was erect..he would also come into my room at night when he worked. I finally ran away from there during a medical appointment. I was one fo the lucky ones to get away. They did keep all of my personal items.. but it was worth the trade off..

Re: “This is not a test

"You can't judge a dentist on how many of his patients have cavities."

This is a nonsense statement. Assessments are judging what happens AFTER the "dental treatment" is given. Would you go to a dentist whose patients repeatedly get worse after spending $10,000 and 9 months getting treatment? No way! You judge a dentist by the results he/she achieves for patients.

It blows my mind that so many people don't want to factor in teacher effectiveness. It makes sense why the teacher unions fight it but no one in our society should be against measuring the effectiveness of teachers if the end goal is to improve student achievement and society itself. If you've got a better way to accurately measure it then propose it but, right now, these tests are the best measuring stick there is.

This is religion trying to adapt. It's better but can't wait for people to grow beyond these fairy tails.

Re: “The face of revenge porn

Haha, oh my God. This doofus is clearly a deluded clown with some sort of personality disorder. The fact that he claims to be proud of the exposure he's received and believes it's going to lead to some sort of future gain/ notoriety is a pretty good indication that he's stunted. Chances are pretty good that he's well aware of how screwed he is and is just trying to overcompensate at this point...

Buddy, the only think that's gonna remain is your name being synonymous with the words 'douchebag', 'pathetic', and 'loser'. No one is gonna remember you as anything other than a cretin. Congrats. Your parents must be so proud.

Think she's bothered by that passage in Leviticus explicitly forbidding tattoos?

Appreciate Nadia's desire to be orthodox in faith and loving to all people. May The Holy Spirit really direct her next week and use her to shape Christians around the cross of Christ.

Re: “Runaway

ArcheAge is an MMORPG developed by Korean developer Jake Song (former developer of Lineage) and his development company, XL Games. The game was released in Korea on January 15, 2013, Europe and North America on September 16, 2014, and has also had a closed beta in China. ArcheAge is described as a "sandpark" MMORPG, which the developers say is a hybrid of the open content style of a "sandbox" game and the more structured play experience of a "themepark" game.

Finally! I've heard rumors about what was happening at America the Beautiful, and I am so glad that our city has decided to support its feline-loving citizens. This is almost better than City for Champions!

Re: “Eye in the sky?

Here something to STRONGLY consider. Small drones with electric motors, with landing pads placed in various locations within the city, they could be anywhere within a couple minutes if they were strategically placed. Also, with the military using them, get them involved to train and evolve their troops. Electric motors have zero maintenance compared to gas powered vehicles, and could be made very quiet. To me there is NO comparison. I ran vehicle repair shops for almost two decades, maintenance and the insurance and upkeep will kill ya.

"Brittain clearly enjoys the attention. And the way he sees things going, he'll always be able to get it."

Clearly he doesn't. Brittain has applied to have HIS pictures removed from the internet. Baby can dish it but not take it.

Re: “Welcome to Kolorado, Klan Kountry

My grandfather, Gerome Torribio, was a first generation Italian immigrant living in Trinidad during the 1920s. One day the Klan marched downtown where he worked in a hardware store. He spotted the mayor in the parade, and called out, "Hey, Mayor, why are you hiding in that bedsheet? I know you from your worn-out brown shoes!" That night, the Klan burned a cross on the top of Simpson's Rest behind his house. That's a family story we are proud of--thanks for this article.

Re: “Welcome to Kolorado, Klan Kountry

Perhaps, Mr. BobCo, the two articles would not have seemed so similar if you bothered to read past the first paragraph. Apparently, you missed this paragraph from the article above: "In the spring of 1924, Klan members packed the precinct caucuses of both the Democratic and Republican parties..."

Re: “Welcome to Kolorado, Klan Kountry

This story is basically a copy of another story I read about the Klan in Colorado. Major exception is that this author left out some key facts that would have been embarrassing to his political agenda. The very first paragraph is almost a complete copy from the original story except that this author decided to omit the fact that the Klan took over both the Democrat and Republican parties.
It was probably very easy to take over the Democrats since it was the democratic party that started this disgusting organization. The Republicans took a little more time and pressure.
I'm so glad the Indy has never wavered in reporting fake news and stories. At least I can always count on you guys to lie in everything you say.
