    You have a child?

    Poor kid, what did you teach him first, how to hate Jews or how to despise them?

    i teach them to love everyone. not agreeing with israeli foreign policies does not = hating jews. go troll somewhere else with your typical shill tactics. :rolleyes:

    I think there is also one of those for physical fitness. If they didn't get that as well they need to work harder. :p

    I was going to write something else because your response invited it, but while i disagree with you strongly i probably shouldn't take this away from you.

    Good on your kid, hope he grows up without the brainwashing and becomes a much better person than you are.

    Being the brilliant individual I am, I too once received the president's award of academic excellence. Unfortunately George Bush cheapened it by signing it with a stamp rather than his signature. :(

    I got one back when clinton was in. I can't remember if they give it multiple times or not, but I remember I got it in 6th grade.

    my daughter was pissed she didn't get it. when they did the test she had a broken foot and couldn't run.

    she did get the President's Award for Educational Excellence though. She did slip in the State wide testing. Last year she was in the 95% and slipped to 89%. she was upset on that too heh.

    Ah... not until you finish college do you realize how pointless all those rewards are.

    But meh, live in the moment and celebrate!

    They arent pointless, if you actually give a flying fucknut about your career.
    All that shit adds up and it can be meaningful.

    no they are pointless when you get older. But for a 10yr old kid? they are great.
