Children Left Behind

I ‘m mad at Bush, again.  Granted, I am one of those right wing nuts, who doesn’t like anything moderate to liberal.  But this time he has gone too far. First, I am not a fan of the “No Child Left Behind” education program that Bush has set in place.  It’s intentions are good, as are most liberal/moderate government programs, but its roots are evil.

A very scary combination when on the road.  Not as scary as snow and wind, but scary none the less.  What makes it even scarier are the sound barriers that they are building around here lately.  As I was driving to work today, the wind was blowing something fierce.  I had my steering wheel turned 1/8th a turn just to try and counter the wind.  The roads were wet, and it was
