  • Issue: California School Bans Non-Vaccinated Students

    CityWatch

    Date: Jan 30, 2015

    A California high school barred dozens of non-vaccinated students from school on Wednesday over concern that a classmate may have contracted measles in a rare outbreak of the highly contagious disease that began at a Disneyland resort last month.

    The order, which affects 66 students at Palm Desert High School near the resort community of Palm Springs, marks at least the second time a California school has prohibited non-vaccinated students from classes since the outbreak began.

    "We are simply responding, being very careful and making sure we're taking the best care of students and staff," said Mary Perry, a spokeswoman for the Desert Sands Unified School District, which overseas Palm Desert High. She said the non-vaccinated students have been ordered to stay home until Feb. 9.

'A SHOT OF WHISKEY'

In the old west a .45 cartridge for a six-gun cost 12 cents, so did a glass of whiskey. If a cowhand was low on cash he would often give the bartender a cartridge in exchange for a drink. This became known as a "shot" of whiskey.


 

Advice to Occupiers: Shave, Bathe and Get a Clear Message

VOICES - I read the Tina Dupuy story in CityWatch about Wall Street demonstrators wanting some form of Justice and not being adequately heard.  For a message to have impact it must be clear and the messengers must be credible. That means send home the freeloaders, anyone being paid to work the protest, co-opters and hijackers, socialist children of Hollywood celebrities and union bosses.
For purposes of TV coverage, bathing and shaving helps. Too many are comporting themselves in a why bother mode, so they are unlikely to be taken seriously.  

A poll in CityWatch states that Wall Street Occupiers are more popular than the Tea Party. No Doubt!! Food is free. Sleeping bags are free! Drug dealers are on site, so says the press and until the stench became overwhelming, occupiers were not harassed or arrested anywhere, even for crap and copulation in the streets. Woo Hoo, it’s a Rave, baby.

The Tea Party is eminently more bashable.  They ask citizens to be responsible for themselves and to their country and government to operate within the confines of the US Constitution. Not the stuff of a 21st century popularity contest.  They don't think much of legalizing millions of illegals holding jobs that could provide pay checks for Americans, but they definitely agree that financial injustice is being perpetrated on America, as well as its future generations, by government.

Wall Streeters and the Tea Party both want to know where one trillion American taxpayer dollars went and both want America working again.  I believe the Tea Party generation should go to “Wall Street” and help the young protesters get out their message.  Together they could frighten Congress straight --- and argue about the details later.

When the American majority enjoyed a national ethic that included personal responsibility, common sense and respect, America was an impenetrably strong nation and no one screwed with us. Today they not only screw with us, they laugh at us and then kill us when the mood strikes and some of those doing the damage are our own.
