Re: Letter on Education

The classroom is a reflection of the society. As long as the world is fucked up, so will the classroom be. The kids don't need to be beaten; the adults who wrecked the schools need to be fired before all the schools are utterly trashed. The same things are being applied to the suburban and rural sc...

Re: Letter on Education

Whatever makes you comfortable. This isn't about comfortable. It's nonsense about a "subconscious" and not being in control of our actions that led to the belief people aren't responsible for their actions or the outcomes of those actions. The only thing we hold leaders responsible for is what they...

Re: Letter on Education

Alternatively we are heading to a very bleak future where our every action will be dictated by others and dissent is untolerated. You've missed that deadline by 15 years. But if you think beating up on poor people is the way to improve the world, you're right on schedule. Who wants to beat up on po...

Re: Letter on Education

These people are far from being the "best and brightest". They usually have no more qualifications than rich parents who purchadse a Harvard degree for them. The best and brightest wouldn't be destroying products, companies, and brands. They wouldn't need special favors from Washington. The people ...

Re: Letter on Education

Spending money means nothing - especially when everything the government is supposed to be responsible for is bought from, made by or contracted out to private corporations. If other prices are anything to go by, plain old inflation accounts for a ten-fold increase since 1960. If the retailers and ...

Re: Letter on Education

Which? Those are opposites. No they aren't. One is education and the other is indoctrination. The former requires effort the latter only that you don't think. You haven't researched the subject all that thoroughly. You're right of course. I haven't so much researched it as lived it. It sounds like ...

Re: Letter on Education

Give the teachers the money and demand results and the problem will go away in six weeks. After draconian cuts, what money is given to the which teachers? What specific results are being demanded of these teachers? I suspect it's the teachers who would be gone in six weeks, not the problem. It take...

Re: Letter on Education

FUX network punditry. Poor people are given too much. By whom? And what would be the 'correct' amount to invest in the future of half the country's youth? But, hey, prisons are a whole lot more profitable than schools. It's the status quo that that supports the quisling media and prisons for profit...

Re: Letter on Education

Too easy. Parents have time, money, jobs, marriages, culture. All these resources are not evenly spread between parents and black parents (when they are together) tend to have less of all of these things. I would also not discount the inherent racism (even unintentional) amongst teachers, who are l...

Re: Letter on Education

Black people are bad parents because they work three part time jobs, from which they'd be fired if they took time to attend PTA meeting and maybe don't have don't have absolute blind faith in the white educational system that strips their neighbourhood schools of funds and doesn't pay their teacher...

Re: Letter on Education

It's not the parents. It's the entire educational system that is afraid to hurt anyone's feelings. The problem is there are no consequences for poor results. It's starts at thew top in Washington where the faiuled educational establishment got thre biggest funding increase in history a few years bac...

Re: What will become inevitable if man finds immortality?

...that it's the ultimate bore.

Re: Perhaps he saw something undesirable about himself & his job

Maybe they've found that the pigs have to be severely dehydrated when they're killed or the meat won't suck up as much water and sodium tripolyphosphate in processing. Maybe a .2% reduction in slaughter rate is a 1% increase in how much the tray of water and meat holds. It's not only good samaritans...

Re: What will become inevitable if man finds immortality?

Overpopulation? Actually if we could redevelop the fountain of youth today I believe the population could be stabilized at about 30 billion within 500 years. This assumes that "immortality" means 700 to 1000 year lifespans and that it must begin before old age sets in. This population could easily b...

Re: How responsible is news reporting on breakthroughs?

All science reported by the quisling press is junk science now day; pop science. It is to misdirect and feelgood while being politically correct. Even "real science" now days is turning into junk science. This is going to bite us on the ass one of these days. I just saw one guy defending the adulter...
