    I had bad parents, I blame them for much of the misery my siblings went through. I and one other "escaped" but considerable damage was done to the other 4.
    My advice to kids with bad parents, finish high school and then move far, far away....

    You're really hot with the liberal talking points today. Let the government subsidize self destructive behavior. So much for personal responsibility.

    What's next, why American tax payers should subsidize free public school education for illegal aliens?

    I like to compare some of my siblings who make excuses for being broke or poor to the younger sister of a friend. This gal has Down's Syndrome, and was employed most of her life.
    Enough with excuses....get up off the couch and go find something useful to do...

    I've posted this before, but I have a family member on gov's assisance. Has been for 3 years. I've tried to help him thru with, what he calls "contributions", but I've stopped and told him to get a job.

    Is he happy? He must be or he'd get up and do something constructive.

    But I'm sure the gov't teet is going to be stopped and he has wasted 3 years of life doing nothing but feeling sorry for himself and living off the backs of other taxpayers.

    By help in school do you mean a minimum grade that will make them happy. Sort of like your minimum threshold for comfort for those out of school?

    As for the kids who just have an attitude problem, our schools certainly could do a better job convincing them that their attitude is self defeating and detrimental to their future.
    I totally agree, I don't think that they even address this issue in most schools, well not in the ones who need it. I bet if you walk into a white suburbia school you will find that the lot of them want to go to college, but if you go to a inner city school you will find that they are all filled with kids with no hopes or dreams.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    No, I mean that we need to find out if they have bad parents and try to make up for their ****ty background.

    It is unfortunate that the systems we have in place don't impact the children the way they should. I'm glad you got out .

    Oh, so you see the correlation then you just don't put two and two together? BTW, I truly feel sorry for you TurtleDude if that is what you think of other people.

    lol, so for you then subsidizing the poor is a way of teaching the poor to stay in their place by a means of reward? If you think wellfare is a reward, guess again.
