    I do know this, and you've made my point for me. It's ludicrous to allow politicians to dictate to university administrators how they should allocate their budgets. Who told them that having an opinion qualifies you to make those decisions?

    I believe our elected representatives should be busier fixing Standards for their State or the Union, than micromanaging other organizations.

    Okay, you keep asking silly questions, so I'm going to be polite and assume you're just having some fun.

What one parent might see as expanding their kids mind and horizons another might find doesn't, but instead desire for their child to spend their time learning something else that they find expands their mind and horizons. The point is that it's a difference of opinion on what parents want their kids to learn and what they find is in the best interest of their children.

    she doesn't want someone else handing it to them.

    i don't think you would take to kindly if someone tried to give you kid a graphical novel depicting sex scene's. i know i wouldn't. more so when i am being charged for it.
    hopefully by then i have raised my kids properly so that they know better.
    Of course he isn't reading my posts.

    If I've raised my kids to college-going age and they can't react maturely to people handing them sexually graphic literature then I've done something wrong. One thing that kids of that age definitely need a strong talking to about is those damn credit card booths. Seriously, those things are a menace.
    You have no problem with strangers handing your children porn. Not everyone feels as you do.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If they're, say, 16 and under, then yeah I'd definitely have a problem with it. If they're 18 and over, moved out of the house and in college, then I think they can handle this devastating pressure.

    Not while I'm paying, first of all.

    I read constantly that today's college graduates complain that they can't find jobs. I also see posts on here and elsewhere that it's everyone's fault that kids' educations suck. Given that - why would ANYONE think this is what kids should be receiving from college in lieu of meaningful things, like say, our Constitution, or a history book, or an economics book. Then I read that there are such college courses as "50 Shades of Grey" and a college course about Pornography and a college course about a woman who finds out her father is gay.

    I'm sure the interview for kids who take those kinds of courses would be wonderful. "Well, you got a C- in American History, and a D in American Lit, but I see you aced Pornography. You're exactly the kind of person we want. Welcome to Boeing!".

    If this is the type of **** that kids are focusing on in college, it's no wonder that they can't find jobs, and no wonder that most of them think Spiro Agnew is a mousaka. And I call BS on the administrations who think graphic sex cartoons are more important than knowing what happened on Lexington Green.
