    Im not in denial. Im aware because I observe, living in California weve known about much of the crap the left is pushing federally a decade prior. And this after it failing in the state. Books/articles/new reports/research etc. are helpful as well.

    Beyond that there is substantial evidence of the failures of leftism throughout the world-the map isn't the territory, and yet you guys remain on the same course.

    Sure! Every day, you display how little you know about what "leftists" actually believe.

    Re: Stop reading to your child cuz it's not fair to disadvantaged children... WTF??

    That's the stupidest thing I've heard in a long time.

    It costs nothing to read to your child. You don't even have to buy books. Check them out at the library. Oh, but wait - gosh. Taking your kids to the library probably causes a disadvantage to those kids whose parents are too lazy to do even that.

    Man, do I hate this "everybody gets a trophy" society that we've evolved into.
    Not surprisingly, that is not at all what the people are saying. In fact they say the opposite. Really easy to find these things out just by reading the actual source.

    Re: Bedtime reading could disadvantage other children, academic says

    I think the article has a point. It should all be "equal". I think we should send someone to the houses of the lazy people to read their accidental offspring every night and even maybe bring them a Michelle designed dinner. If a neglected child is hit by a car because his parents weren't watching him we should get a kid that has parents that care and push their kid out in front of a car. Only fair, right? I mean, if we don't care enough to push that kid out in front of a car then who will take care of the neglected child? It is never the parent's fault. We can NEVER blame a parent for not taking responsibility. The question is always, "Who can we blame?"

    Stupid article deserved a stupid answer.

    If you employ another house cleaner on a $20 an hour 40 hour a week wage we would already be on our way to a better world.

    How many cleaning ladies do you employ full time at $20 an hour. If you would do that for a girl, she could go home and read to her children.
