How utterly stupid. You actually BELIEVE the garbage put out by the Democrats in lieu of a single plan for saving the economy and putting people back to work.

I don't think so. I have a child who, in the 4th Grade brought home a part of her "social studies" text that taught her class that the first Thanksgiving was held to thank the Native Americans for their help in the preceding year! Utter nonsense, of course. We're teaching our children how to put a condom on a banana--but not whether or not to engage in activities that would ordinarily require a condom in the first place. We are telling our children that they must not only tolerate homosexuality, but celebrate, or even embrace it. We're teaching our kids that the path to greatness for this country is "diversity," but are demanding conformity of thought to achieve academic approval. It's in THAT sense that we're teaching them WHAT to think instead of HOW. I graduated from HS in 1960. I'm not so old that I don't remember that my best teachers were those that challenged me to think for myself and gave me the tools with which to do so.

True and I don't think this has anything to do with "evolution." I think it's more a function of the wholly-idiotic idea that "all children can learn if you can just find the right combination." We "mainstream" the mentally disabled thinking that makes them "feel good" about themselves. Unfortunately, the teacher finds herself or himself devoting the majority of his/her time to those kids instead of teaching the class...wasting the classes time, for the most part.

Except that education does NOT "teach facts." Our system teaches political correctness, "feeling" whether something is right or wrong instead of how to reason, or, at best, teaches WHAT to think instead of HOW.

Must say I have to agree. Look at how many people voted for Obama because they thought (wrongly) that they were going to get "free stuff." Look at how many high school graduates we have who can't read their own diplomas or write a coherent sentence but are "graduated" so the school's "graduation rate" will look good on paper. Look at how many people we have "achieving" BA degrees in such silly "disciplines" as "Minority studies," "Sociology" or Phys Ed. and then are hired to TEACH because they can't find a decent job elsewhere...certainly not in their chosen field.

My wife never TOOK "the pill" idiot. We WANTED children, but she couldn't have them, so we ADOPTED a few. Kiss my bo-heinie.

...not in a million years. One thing that practically DEFINES those on the left is GREED.

Ah. Were you THERE watching, Tony? It was alleged that he did so. In lots of States--Georgia being one--the easiest grounds for divorce, one that doesn't require much "proof," is infidelity so is usually claimed by anyone wanting a divorce. Big deal.

Try not to be quite so stupid. The church isn't a building. It's the congregation and THEY all pay taxes of all kinds--including priests and nuns, for that matter.

NO it wasn't, Tony. She was talking about getting "free" CONTRACEPTION for herself and her fellow women law students. One can only wonder whatever happened to all those women with "menstrual disorders" BEFORE the pill came along in the early 60's. The fact is, the pill has CAUSED more such "disorders" than it has "helped," not to even mention blood clots, strokes, nephritis, heart attacks, etc. The only, reliable method of birth control is NOT having sex...period. Even condoms have about a 30% failure rate. Wake up and smell the coffee.
