    I am so tired of these "the govt should do everything for us" people. Good God, whatever happened to personal responsibility? Why do so damn many people today expect the govt to take care of every-****ing-thing for them? And then we wonder why taxes and the deficit are sky high.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    That's exactly what I'm saying. Numbers tend to dilute stupidity, even if they dilute intelligence as well.

    well **** me...why not just turn over raising kids to the govt completely? who gets to decide which issues are too important to leave to the parents? let's just do away with parenting altogether. we have the technology. all conceptions can be invitro, all "mothers" can be paid surrogates and then the kids can be raised in govt run institutions where a wide range of "experts" can teach them all they ****ing need to know.

    I'm sure we live in a nation where every parent has the time and qualifications to educate children.

    Yep, totally sure.

    Maybe we should entirely privatize education? How about policemen? That way people can use the second amendment and make personal safety their business instead of the taxpayers.

    So interesting that you describe your lean as Very Liberal.

    Then I would suggest that you move to a country that has a more centralized government.

    (see how that works?)

    No, but thanks for your offer. I'll simply continue to advocate central authority in most public matters.

    how much time and qualification does it take to teach a kid about sex and birth control? It's not rocket science for pete's sake.

    Maybe if you said more words to your kid than "mommy be back" they might know something: Chris Rock

    That's why johnny can't read. the school is too busy trying to teach him all the **** his parents are supposed to that there is no time to teach him how to read, write, do basic math, etc.
    Yeah, God forbid we actually let the education system educate our children.

    Should we move away from Abstinence Only? Yes we should, definitely. However, I don't mind Abstinence Plus curriculum.
