One of the things that really annoyed the progressives during President
Obama’s early days as the president was that he seemed to believe if he gave in to the republicans on a few issues, they would pay him back by supporting proposals of his.
The Republicans in the House of Representatives have attempted 37 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Before President Obama had even signed it into law, Republicans had vowed to repeal it. Polls showed that the basic elements of the Act were popular, and its becoming more popular as people found out that the plan would not trample on their liberties as the GOP had claimed, seemed threatening to the GOP agenda.
Barnstable and PJP2 Still In It To Win It...
The Boston Bruins are not the only locals who came to kick butt and chew bubble gum, only to remember that they were all out of bubble gum.
Massachusetts is a big state, and- even with regional schools- there are a lot of high schools in it. That's why this Cape Cod sports editor loves sitting down at the keyboard and telling you that Cape Cod does indeed still have teams from their high schools involved in the deeper parts of several state tournaments.
Since yesterdays blog has created such a stir I got to thinking that this is probably not the only time a teacher has wasted valuable school instruction time and it probably happens at others schools.

Cape Cod's Atlantic Hurricane Season Starts Early This Year...
Seems like so much is going on these days that one does not have a moment's peace.
Graduations, weddings and the constant influx of newcomers to the Cape make these days sort of like some sensory overload as compared to the quietude of the winter season.
Taking a walk on the railroad tracks proved unwise due to the introduction of the train from Boston coming thru, its whistle emphatic. I hopped off the tracks to a side embankment just in time to catch the back legs of a red fox heading towards a ravine.
Finally the end of the school year is approaching so I shall opine on what I have learned. These are my opinions about local schools, and teachers. It's an honest assessment, nothing more or less.
Now I have to admit, this one came out of nowhere for me.
Senior Salvation Army officials went on record saying that GLBT parents should be put to death because the bible says so. Their language might have been couched, but it is clear to anyone with even a rudimentary grasp of language and intent.
