Story

Aaaaaaand....this is why the current Republican party will not survive. Hate and prejudice all around.

Excerpt:

Under the measure sponsored by Sen. Stacey Campfield of Knoxville, a school counselor, nurse or principal can inform parents if their children's "circumstances present immediate and urgent safety issues involving human sexuality."

Campfield told reporters on Wednesday that he considers the "act of homosexuality" to be dangerous to a child's health and safety.

Republican blueprint: make public schools a horrible place for homosexuals, cite the fact that they are a horrible place as a reason for them to be shut down, brilliant!

I am not a republican. Republicans are statists and they cannot be trusted to act in our best interests. They should not be controlling education in this country. The same applies to democrats.

I think the point still stands that there are people like this senator who are actively making public schools a sh*ttier place for homosexuals, and your response is to blame the public schools.  I mean let's not stop acting like complete f*ckwads towards homosexuals when we're in a public elected office, let's just attack the system itself, that makes total f*cking sense :roll:

You should visit Appalachia someday after you grow up. There's whole areas out here that couldn't collectively afford a screwdriver.

I went through my teens where I thought I had all the answers, too. Then I grew up and realized how stupid teens are.

Good. It is in the people's best interests to know which kids have homosexual tendencies and, most of all, what kind of dangerous super powers homosexuality bestows upon them.

Yeah, because that hasn't ever worked out poorly.  I just love the isntances we have of private funding in education so far, like when businesses have sponsored schools in exchange for being able to push their own agenda-laden textbooks into the classroom.  But oh no, the liberals and their big government are the ones trying to indoctrinate everything with their crazy science and all, can't have children learning that.  Oh yeah, and why aren't our kids scoring higher in math and science?  It must be those damn liberals and their public schools, better pass another bullsh*t law that demands higher standards with less funding like NCLB and keep testing these kids to death.

Out of true curiosity, what's it like to have nothing but air between your ears?  Can you stick a candle in there and light yourself up like a jack-o-latern on Haloween?

Actually, the kids perform quite well on testing. But the parents can't move because moving isn't free, there are few jobs in the area, none pay well, and so on.

Right, so you're not blaming the politicians who are doing that, you're blaming the system.  You're shifting the blame off of the very people who are abusing the system instead of trying to fix the system.  Private enterprise also uses schools as tools to carry out social agendas, the difference with public schools is that the electorate actually has the power to counter-act this in some way.

It is clear that ideas that do not exist within your socialist bubble-reality make you uncomfortable. You don't need a government mandate to teach science and math. If you privatize education then schools will teach what their communities want taught. Communities that value math and science will learn about math and science. NCLB has nothing to do with privatization of schools.

The system that gives politicians control over what is taught is what allows these politicians to corrupt the schools. And the public can only counter-act a political agenda with 51% of support. What about the other 49% They don't matter to democratic socialists like you.

Public education gives politicians direct control over what happens to children at school. These politicians are determined by democratic elections. That means the 51% are choosing who controls education, and the 49% are forced into going along with it no matter how absurd it is. This system is obviously not working, as we see in the op.

I'm just going to say both parties are doomed if the crazies become their faces.

I was on a political thread on Reddit a few weeks ago and some of the more vocal liberals in it were calling meth a "soft drug" and legalizing it would stop all gang violence.

As a Republican myself, I'm embarrased by what some of the people in the party say, but the real logic lies with the moderates.
