Bulldog, I don't think Mike can leave an argument without having the last word. He loves to throw stones doesn't he!

Why bull, it's so nice to see you have learned that self respect is reflected in how one addresses others. I hope someone else was responsible for teaching that lesson to your children and grand-children. You are to old to learn anything as basic as manners, too bad. You have a good day bull.

Your posting sure looks like your a person with anger management problems. Blaming everyone but yourself.

Bull, your calling me a liberal is enough to prove to everyone on this thread that your comprehension skills are lacking. Your continued raving about an issue done and over for many years is a sign of a troubled personality. And just a small fyi, you pompous ass, I knew the principal and the parents through those little things you wouldn't have a clue about. Parent teacher conference nights. Now run along and prove your moral superiority somewhere else. I hear that bastion of conservative values, the Catholic Church, needs some help in their PR department. Be a good little neo-con and see what you can do...

If they gave you a check would you have taken it? And if you had that would have been wrong for the numerous reasons listed. If every parent demanded payment for meetings then everyone would be paying because just about every parent has issues with the school. You had no right to ask for payment. And I agree that no school official would allow you to question other students. Your story just doesn't make sense. Your story is filled with "I" and no school official would allow you to ask questions of other students or run a meeting with other students. Sorry but it sure doesn't look like your being truthful.

You can tell if someone is a liberal by the way they justify what they do instead of taking responsibility.

Ok, I guess I'll try this one more time. I did not lie. I gave them a choice, they took the choice I was hoping they would. To stop the bullying. If they had decided to tell their parents they needed a check and why, I would have been happy to talk to those parents to explain why. In no way did I lie, but it seems telling the truth is a concept you and a couple other people here can't quite grasp. Doubting the veracity of my story is any and everyone's right. Calling me a liar and insulting me is not.

One way to stop it is not lie to the students.

There is no stopping it really. You can put a dent in it (maybe) with education and punishment of the offender (the bully not the victim) and make kids and parents responsible for what the kid does. If your child is a victim then teach them how to defend and stand up for their selves. If your the parent of a bully then punish that child in a way that gets through to them. TIME OUTS DO NOT WORK!!! Schools separate the bullies from the rest of the school, get them counseling but keep them of the "legal" (as well as illegal) drugs. Take away video games, cell phones etc. if they continue to be a bully. They will wind up in jail at some point if they don't change.

Before the thread was hijacked by a personality clash, the discussion was how to help end bullying. Maybe we can get back on topic folks? I'd really like to hear some ideas. I'll even take personal solutions used by parents to safeguard their kids.

Mental issues. Is that how you debate Captain? You had a hard enough time grasping the Ripley school issue! Stay out of this one.

Teacher,

Crying? Your the one who seems so emotionally invested in blowing a minor issue into a major event so you can paint Mike as some lying slimball or some such.

As for close minded, I'm looking at both sides and your the only one attacked anyonw who dares disagree with you.

Mike and I, on the otherhand had disagreed on many issues, but we don't turn it into some personal vandetta as you've seemed to.

Darkstar the crying just doesn't cut it. You guys have excuses for everything except those that go against your opinion.

Darkstar, I don't know. I actually feel a little sorry for the guy. What does that say about the rest of it if I'm the most interesting thing in his life? Oops, there go those dreaded I's again.

Mike,

Did you run over teacher's dog or something? They really seem to have an unhealthy fixation on you.

"Do you people really think its alright to mislead others?"

Yes, but as in all things it's situational.

Is it okay for me to shoot someone in the head? No, not if it's a random person walking down the street, but yes it's okay if the person is a threat to the life of my wife and son.

homeboyx, basically the world has been politicized. There is no middle ground to meet and talk, only yell over each other with the bias of whichever side one is on. Mislead? Lies? Give me a politician from either party in the last thirty years that isn't guilty of that. I guarantee there will be five posts with documented proof that politician was caught in at least one.
