    What I've learned from this thread:
    Comic books are no longer funny.

    Most of us stopped reading comic books when we discovered girls, motorcycles, cars, and other more physical pursuits......

    They ain't as cheap as they were forty years ago either! ;)

    Agreed. I pity the children of the near future. They are being indoctinated into avery bad and self-destructive life philosophy. As they reach the age of majority, what will they make of society? Not only will they vote, they will become the leaders of "A Brave New World" but with some totally screwed up values........

    Not my Grandchildren. Their parents watch over their Education rigorously, as in they APPROVE and Monitor, the curriculum, taught to each of their children, and have taken School Boards to Court, to have their children OPTed Out of offensive to them, curriculum. YES, IT IS A PITA, to have to do, but as a Parent, there really is NO more Important Responsibility, in my, and their view. I very much like Tracy's approach to her children's Education, she does it herself. Again, that takes a lot of time, but then you KNOW where your children are getting their information. Way to many sheeple parents, just let the Government, warehouse their kids, for them, while they go off, and have careers and such. There is a BIG difference between Physically being a Parent, and being a Responsible Parent, in my opinion..... YMMV....

    Yes...brainwash them to believe that nothing is their fault...if you get a STD, it wasn't your BEHAVIOR that got you there, it is our free-market health system.

    This PC crap in the schools is totally out of control. What are they teaching the kid in school now? When I was in school they did not try to brainwash us into liking and accepting everyone, we got to decide it for ourselves. I do not like everyone or accept everyone, because I don't have to and I know everyone else does not like me.

    How to do it and not get it by one who did it, got it....

    and can't get rid of it! : O


    There is nothing in the article (web page) that you referred to above, that indicates that
    . Can you please explain how the referenced article above substantiates your rather bizarre claim?


    There are two main thrusts to the article referenced....


    1. Although
    therefore the government's strategy for dealing with this hazard to youth health is to try and
    Now, that would tend to indicate that that there is a cause and effect relationship between decison making about sexual practices and sexual health outcomes n'est-ce pas? i.e. make serial decisions over time that result in having unprotected sex with multiple partners and the probability increases that one may get much than just a nasty little rash! I don't think that young people are even thinking about the "free market health system" when they contemplate having a bonk...what would make a difference would be if young people had better information about the risks of pregnancy and stds, and the means by which those risks may be minimised..


    2. The second main element of the article observes that the methods of getting accurate, relevant information that will be readily understood and adopted by young Americans has, thus far at best only been moderately successful:


    (My emphasis - VC)


    The article referenced by you suggests, indirectly, that HIV/AIDS/STD information should be written/designed/published/disseminated in ways that are more readily accessible, comprehendable, and attractive to the youth of America. This seems, at least to me, to be a sound conclusion on the part of your country's public health authorities...what is so controversial about that???


    In conclusion, if one is to make outrageously bizarre claims in a post (post # 28 for instance), then the poster would do well to provide sound evidence that actually supports the claim, rather than undermines it.

    Hey Chell, This sounds like you are in agreement, that "Madison Avenue" should do a complete PR Campaign, with cute little Bunnies, and Hot looking Chickies, to teach these concepts, in schools, to sheeple children, all at Government Expense. Do I have this, RIGHT? Excuse "Me" if I got that wrong.... but Sonny, that is [BSf] Politically Correct type thinking.... it is a very slippery slope...... My Opinion.... YMMV....

    News Flash.... It is Official.... Bet and Ernie are NOT Gay.

    Bert and Ernie - not gay
    By CHRIS GRYGIEL, SEATTLEPI.COM STAFF
    Updated 06:10 p.m., Thursday, August 11, 2011

    They've lived together for 42 years and share a bedroom, but the people who produce "Sesame Street" made it clear on Thursday: Bert and Ernie are not gay.

    Nor are they heterosexual. They just are.

    "Bert and Ernie are best friends. They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.

    "Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics, they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation," Sesame Workshop said in a statement posted on Facebook.

    The explanation about Bert and Ernie came after increasing online chatter that the producers of the popular, long-running children's show should allow the characters to marry.

    ______ ________ _______ _______ _______ _______ _________ _______

    So, there you have it... an Official Announcement, direct from the Creator...
    and all the Liberal PC Left whining, can't change the FACTS. THEY ARE PUPPETS, PERIOD..... Whew, they (PC Idiots) nearly caused a meltdown....

    Then charge the successor of the old League of Nations, the UN. All the Israelis did was the same the we Americans, you Australians and so many others did.

    Correct me if I am wrong; after the war, the Euros wanted to get rid of the Jewish refugees and did by creating Israel.

    UGRev, do me a favor and go ahead and add me to your ignore list too. If Chelloveck's well thought out, considerate posts annoy you; I'm going to absolutely infuriate you. Might as well avoid the inevitable fireworks.
    Thanks

    Strange... I am so tired of hetrophobia! I had to attend a "professional development" activity where our entire school staff were lectured on the evils of critisizing 'alternate life style choices.' I took as much of that as I could stomich, stood up and told the guest lecturer that I was tired of her 'hetrophobia.' I walked out... and many of the staff followed me.

    I do not condone bullying for ANY reason... and certainly will not allow those choosing an 'alternate' life style to 'bully' me into thinking its ok because they say so.

    I sat through my department's "Equal Rights/Diversity Training" BS years ago - might have got fired otherwise - but I didn't take part in the 'exercises'. The whole thing was nothing but bashing White Males - we were responsible for ALL the world's ills, according to them........

    I don't need that crap to do my job.
