Education would get better with good parenting.

Yeh, and how is that working out so far? I bet all the trumpkof supporters had 'good parents'.

Yes, how is that public education working out for most students? How is it working for the Nazi elite Hillary supporters? It probably works pretty good for them because the rich democratic Nazi elites send their children to private schools for grades K-12.

Are the rest of the children in this country getting smarter and prepared for the rest of the 21st century?

And I bet you had good parents too m'fcker white nationalist. May I suggest you start building schools and hospitals rather than prisons.

Yes I did have good parents. Sorry if you didn't. This just proves my point from the other thread. Don't have children until you are ready for a lifelong committment. Thanks for bringing that out and confirming.

And how is building more schools going to solve your problems?

My problem?

Seems to me building more schools AND then attending one of those schools would solve YOUR problem.

You are the one saying build more schools. Why? What problem will be solved by having more buildings called schools? Please tell us...

rs allen 1 year 33 weeks ago

Us?

Who's this us? Don't try to inclued me into your reptilian branch of the human race.

If you can't figure out why schools are more important than prisons, then go back to school.

I ain't yo momma. And I ain't no nurse maid. So go to school child.

Well.....that went downhill fast.

Politicians blame either Teacher Unions or lack of spending when the big problem is lack of parenting. It's not easy to get elected by telling voters it's their fault their kid is screwed up.

Yeh, and it started the slide at post #1.

So let's get this parent thing straight shall we? It takes at least two people of the opposite sex to make another people. Correct? So providing I have my facts straight any random couple of the opposite sex can become PARENTS. OMG! Who would've thunk it?

But the village always raises the human being. Duh.

You do not think that the home life is the biggest single factor in a childs life?

50/50 odds at best and if I were making book on it I'd never offer those kinds of odds because I'd lose at every turn then be looking for food stamps just so I could eat.

And RS still has not informed anyone why building more schools will improve education.

Over the last 30-40 years, the dissolution of the nuclear family life is the biggest reason why a lot of children are struggling today. Its common sense, unless you're a progressive/liberal/elitist.

What has happened to the democratic party in this country?

Anyone? Anyone means just you doesn't it. Grow up and

Go to school child.

Coalage3 1 year 32 weeks ago

Already been there and done that.

Now tell everyone how building more schools will improve education.

rs allen 1 year 32 weeks ago

You haven't shown any sign of growing up in all years I've been here. You've always remained what you are at heart a Kloustered Koal Kountry 4th grader.

As usual, another nonsensical answer. Maybe you should build one of those schools in your back yard. Might help your writing and comprehension skills. Take your own advice.

Gumbie, getting back to your question.

The best odds I can offer you on your parents prop is 3:1 even though I think 4:1 is closer to the reality.

From the village is borne the human being.

Stupid, uneducated children become stupid, uneducated parents who beget stupid, uneducated children who become...

Break the chain. Forget those damned social networks, pablum for the aging child. Read a good book.

No, not the NY Times list of best sellers. For fine, stimulating, wake up reading, this is my favorite list:

But these books, too, get the gray matter jiggling:

That's like saying ignorance good.
Primitive Lifestyles are not horrendous.
Not taking shower is beautiful.
Raw meat is the best.

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
