Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2015-454: It’s Never Too Late

We had a tardy sweep this week.  It was about as successful as you would expect, considering the leadership philosophy.

First they interrupted the preceding class to announce the tardy sweep.  Then the security people walked around during the break yelling that there would be a tardy sweep.  Then, in the ultimate example of due process, an administrator walked through the halls with a bullhorn yelling there would be a tardy sweep.  I still had five people locked out of my room.

It gets better.  For ten minutes they stood outside my door pounding and acting like the big bad wolf demanding to be let in.  Only when I called the office did someone remember to come up stairs and collect them.

Of the five that were late the lowest number of tardies at that point was 26.  That is clearly stated in the computer and is available to the people who called the tardy sweep.  My question is, “What is the point of a tardy sweep?”  If they can print a report of tardies in seconds, why are they spending hours of people time having tardy sweeps?  Then they don’t seem to do anything about it.

I can only assume that since these people believe that the purpose of school is improving self esteem, they don’t really want to catch anyone.  The self esteem the leadership is really worried about is their own.

Welcome to the results of progressive control of education.  And remember that teachers voted around 85 percent for Barak Obama and a straight Progressive slate.

  1. As a society, we're idiots. We tolerate random traffic stops, even though they are a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment. THEN, they warn people days in advance where and when those stops will be made. One is illegal, the other - just plain stupid.

    1. It is not polite to call people stupid. It may be correct but it is not polite. Having said that, yes it is stupid.

      Grace and peace.

  2. I don't know how you do it. My blood pressure would be through the roof dealing with the ridiculous wastes of time they impose on you.

    1. I have a janitor who keeps reminding me that I am here for a purpose and I need to hang in there. Of course, he can say that. He only has to clean up after them. He doesn't need to try to force them to learn.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
