    You are one amazing person Conservative. Most people at least stop digging. Not you. You send out for a backhoe.

    One of your fellow conservative posters, American, said this about it



    You even shocked him.
    Thank God the constitution guarantees no such thing

    the leftwing lawyers would have a field day if so

    So equal rights doesn't mean equal opportunity? Interesting. Any American who isn't given equal opportunity doesn't really need it as they will win a big, big settlement in court. I find it absolutely amazing that a civics teacher doesn't really understand what our Constitution does and does not provide for. In my world equal rights means equal opportunity. In yours, no one really knows.

    I have to disagree with you on this one

    That is ok, it is fine to disagree. I would have love to have been discriminated against and not given equal opportunity. I could have retired a lot sooner.

    that would be a title VII violation. how does the constitution guarantee equal opportunity? I took con law in law school, took an advanced seminar on it and have written a couple articles about the BOR and I cannot recall the equality of opportunity part

    You are probably right although the 14th Amendment provides equal protection under the law and there are many laws promoting equal opportunity. The EEOC is in place to assure equal opportunity so that is what I have based my opinion on. Equal rights and equal protection to me means equal opportunity.

    I don't agree with that but I can see how some one could claim EP=EO so we will leave it at that

    But when the Government teacher tried to correct you, all you could do was disparage his lack of knowledge.

    Smart move, he trusts an attorney skilled in this area of law over a NEA member

    Truth is truth. It is a sad day when one True Believer will only take the word of a fellow True Believer prostrating himself before the same altar and worshipping the same god. But that shows you the rampant gang mentality that exists here among some.


    Was never a member of the NEA. The are the more conservative.

    And Conservative, I see you issued your thanks ..... and nothing else.

    No matter.
