    I disagree, fundamentally. Socialization is probably the most important thing kids learn in school.

My point is that we were taught what was necessary.
    My daughter now has to graduate...TWENTY YEAR OLDS that cant write a paragraph that makes sense and doesnt have 50 spelling errors...so someone needs to explain why our kids are being indoctrinated instead of educated.
    In Mexico, if the kid does not do the work they don't pass that year. No worries about their feelings. The kid has to do the work.

    I am not saying the educational system in Mexico is strong, but that part I like.

    It makes the kid do his work with no out.

    Depends on whether it's socialization, or socialization, if you get my drift.
    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.

    I just read his follow up post to his comment... and I agree with his delineation. Haven't read the rest of the thread, yet... and the site is about to go down for 45 minutes for re-indexing, so I will follow up, later.

    Impossible, in the beginning they did have a clue as to how it was transmitted.

    I disagree kids go to school to learn to read, write and obtain skills that will enable them to make their own choices..go to college, be a plumber etc. Socialization happens naturally by interacting in school, in the playground and in the park.

    How do you know a kid with gay parents is bullied?

    It sounds like it is on the rules that a kid like that has to be bullied.

    Why the assumption?

    Im not going to argue the point because I dont know...they didnt say specifically it was aids...I believe to this day it was, they had teams of doctors on this young guy..it wasnt a normal hospital stay..and they told us that they had no specific reason why his organs were failing etc.
    There could find no reason this kid was dieing or why his organs were failing
