    syphilis has been around a lot longer - venereal disease has always existed of course, but it has become a lot more complicated in recent decades.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    By accident.

    Do you honestly any teacher will not want to put their slant on it pro or con in addition to the factual material?

    I think it is human nature to try to sway people to your point of view so it will be a crap shoot weather you get somebody onthe side you beleive in to teach your child.

    You are older than some of us. Did AIDs exist when you were plowing the field?

    I didn't pull it out of the air. A lot of states are obligated to investigate incidents of bullying

    Acutally I didnt plow..Im a big city boy born and raised and im not older than some of you..im older than most of you.
    I first became aware of aids in 1968 ...we arrested a kid in his 20s for robbery, he was sick very sick. We brought him to the hospital. We kept 24 hour watch on him..his organs were failing and the poor kid was a mess and finally died.
