Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

They are criticizing Grenell for pointing out how unready many of the NATO countries are defense-wise and that the parties in power are giving legitimacy to alternate views.

They are branding this as "interference in European elections."

Captain Hate,

I should have said that the parties in power are by their actions are giving legitimacy to alternate views.

Captain Hate

Raising children well interferes with being their friend, which so many parents seem to cherish.

I'm not sure where this bit of dysfunctionality arose but I always made it clear to my children that, as their father, I could have fun with them but we weren't peers and never would be. My wife mentions sporadically revolting behavior on Zuckerberg revealing the needy behavior of parents, almost universally single mothers, who don't understand their role related to their children.

Interference in European elections? Where was this concern when Slick and the Bathhouse Rat was openly doing this in Israel, the ME and the Brexit vote?

rse, at our house, it's "being rude."

Any behavior I labelled as that pretty much stopped immediately.
I am not sure how that happened--but it is a good thing!

strange morning already:

Maggie Haberman @maggieNYT

Bill Clinton gets asked if he ever apologized to Lewinsky. He responds by saying Starr investigation was unfair

Video of Slick here:

Wow. Bill Clinton having a meltdown on the Today show when asked if he had apologized to Monica Lewinsky

Glad to hear about Shirley not running again.
Tried the Twitter link and they told me to come back later,

RSE,

Our dil is sweating bullets that her 6yo who just finished Montessori kindergarten is going to be forced to do whole word. Momma was taught that way and has apparently suffered ever since. We reminded her that she has your book presumably buried somewhere from the move, but gave her the link to your site, as well with the nudge to search for phonics. I hope that will give her some ammo.

A-mom,

That same gd (our only one) has a summer job of 1hr of reading, 1hr of math, and 1hr of cleaning her room, etc. Hope that meets your recommendation.

It's probably curtains for the Cavs..

I don't think King LeBron's personality is conducive to team building.

One of the first things that comes out of his mouth is "I left the Whitehouse $16 million in debt".

Unspoken part:

Starr's investigation was unfair, so I am perfectly justified in engaging in shakedowns for the last 2 decades.

henry

Right Buckeye. So many legacies are slowly circling the bowl right now, waiting for that blue wave to flush them away.

MT-I will be happy to tell her who I read (it is in the footnotes) to grasp that the appropriate logic is "sounds have letters" instead of "letters have sounds." With my youngest, euphemistically known here as the diva, she was in a montessori school that just let reading happen.

I systematically taught her like I did the other two and the same harvard press that puts out Wordly Wise also put out phonetically controlled readers that let you systematically introduce the sounds and one-to-one combos and most likely probabilities first. I bought about 80 altogether and then donated them to her school when I was done. Think it cost me about $125 altogether to turn her into a roaringly phonetic, fluent reader as well.

I love the bill peet and 398.2 legends and folk tales with their awesome stories and vocab when gradually introducing the ability to read. It reminds the kids why it is worth it. Each of my kids had a set of books they aspired to read to themselves. With red I remember it was ursula leguin's catwings series. Precious stories.

When they know all the sounds and the probabilities we would read great stories that are non-phonetically controlled one-page each so they practice with multisyllable words they have never seen and learn that moment when they see the visual representation of a word they realize is already a part of their spoken vocabulary.

My kids think teaching reading is something mothers do. I had never intended to do that until the preschool teacher advised "just memorizing the books." To her credit, she later asked me to come in and meet with her to explain how reading could be taught so efficiently.

I will say though that my middle child, red, had a reflex to try to read words as a whole in a way the other two did not. She would have been a prime candidate for dyslexia with a non-systematic technique. There are innate physiological preferences in my experience apart from the ability of phonetic fluent reading to rewire the brain.

Tell her she can reach out anytime. Also find the Patricia Coombs Dorrie the Little Witch books at a library.

James D.

wow, rse. Your 8:53 is simply brilliant.

Buckeye

Not sure how I was taught to read, but never had any problems with speed or comprehension.

I am sure that however I was taught to read, it didn't do squat for learning to spell:)

Man Tran

Thx Robin. Message forwarded.

Whew.

When I read that the last thing on Beast's Father of the Bride list was securing 300 bottles of top shelf champagne, I confess to a moment of Clarice-Induced-Panic.

Old Lurker

4yo Baby Max came home from Montessori the other day and informed his mother that little fish helping clean the backs of sharks is symbiosis.

His alpha 14 month old sister (of YL twin fame) saw how Max could just drop his pants and pee on the bushes when he felt like it, yesterday removed her pants and diaper and peed down the HVAC register on the floor of her room...

August on Nantucket is gonna be "exciting".

Captain Hate

Slick thinks #MeToo means he was a victim. Trying to get that pervert to admit he ever did anything wrong is an occasion for textbook denial.

Old Lurker

Cap'n, that right there is the most annoying thing that all Progs have in common. They are never wrong, and they never quit.

Jane

Ao Krystal is champagne. Clearly I need to live a higher life! (Still like Billie-cart Salmon the best)

Captain Hate

OL, even to his former MFM defenders, like Peter "keep the cameras off my bald spot" Jennings, Slick would explode in Foghorn Leghorn cornpone rage if questioned about anything negative. Part of it was he knew they'd never fire back about shutting his lying yap.

None of you guys can calm me down like JackStraw:

Last time Horowitz gave a date, he say, "May." He kept that date. Word is the scoundrels are scurrying to redact as much of the incriminating evidence as they can and that is the holdup now.

The report is given to every person who is named in it after it has been fact checked to give them both a heads up and a chance to respond before the report is released. The fact that it has been delayed leads me to believe that more that a few of the targets are trying desperately to dispute the facts.

It won't work. Horowitz is looking for payback as much or more than anyone. I expect it to be factual, comprehensive and very bad news for those who tried to coverup the FBI's actions in the email coverup.

Jane, I found it at Costco for Beasts at $200 per bottle. Total Wine & More was only $185.

Beast's 300 bottles might get a discount.

Both of my children were very early readers. My son actually taught himself from watching Sesame Street and The Electric Company, supplemented with me reading the Richard Scarry books to him. He was reading chapter books by the time he was four.

When my daughter came along 10 years later, I read to her, played a game with sounds and words, let her watch the same 2 TV shows, and she was reading at 2nd grade level by the time she entered kindergarten.

They both remain readers to this day. It is one of the few things I feel I did right as a parent.

As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong? In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!

China already charges a tax of 16% on soybeans. Canada has all sorts of trade barriers on our Agricultural products. Not acceptable!

Things returned to normal today when I read The Guardian online where it had an article about a shakeup in the North Korean leadership, probably a murderous one, based upon rumors in its military leadership, based upon a South Korean suspicions. No discussion though about the military guys disagreeing with Kim about still going ahead with claims that the country was going ahead with nuclearization when it was just what the Yanks had made up all along.

More bizarre when Joe Scarborough would only discuss our dictatator playing being a king on tv when his counsel that Giuliani loon indicated that he could have shot the former FBI Director Comey with impunity when it increasingly looks like he did see that poor Seth Rich was done so to help make Trump POTUS..

The appointment of the Special Councel is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Despite that, we play the game because I, unlike the Democrats, have done nothing wrong!

Deliberate misspelling so that more people will RT and reply, thus getting the message out further.
They fall for it every time.
