    Anyone who isn't upset over that has bigger issues than some term largely concocted to whitewash poor upbringing and worse manners.

    ...Matthew Wossner, a poli-sci professor at Penn State, had it right to my mind when he said the left is too quick to slather any policy in ideological opposition touching upon sensitive issues of race and gender with charges of sexism and racism, and that the right is too quick to label legitimate criticism as political correctness.

    Both errors have the same outcome, stifling public speech and meaningful debate.

    And education with CS...

    Anyone who thinks an untrained parent can make a child competitively advanced in the ways fundamental education by professionals can doesn't understand either that educational process or the world those children will be entering. Every other first world nation does, and they advance their interests by educating the next wave of our competition.

    So I'm not appealing to an altruistic spirit, much as that spirit is served in principle, but to a fundamental self-interest.

    So, of course...

    Anyone who confuses a highly trained professional with a random stranger is only slightly more confused than the person who confuses the work of a teacher with raising their child.

    A response to another poster had me pondering the sort of bait some use to fish around here...

    Fun facts about that fish:

    Its season used to run with elections, but now you can catch them year round.

    It's frequently found in the less fresh waters around Washington and state capitals.

    The less educated you are the more likely you are to serve and buy it.

    Though frequently relied upon for sustenance by large groups of people, it is almost impossible to swallow individually.

    Goes well with copious amounts of alcohol.

    Smells worse when you think about it more, though in any event it is always more than a little bitter.

    While AB's speculation about a running joke...

    Maybe he had an aneurysm.

    That would explain a few thousand things...

    Does make you wonder how he remembers his password though.

    It's probably misspelled.

    And then there was...

    See, that started off half-way decent, but then you veered into the crazy lane and that's why we all have to pay higher premiums.

    Here's an alternative: a lot of people just fundamentally disagree with you (and everyone at some point) about some fairly important things. They don't have to be lazy thinkers or blind followers, only people who come to different conclusions than you.

    This is the greatest commonality and CORE bond that Liberal Democrats, Catholics, and Muslims unite in and have in common. A total perversion that seXually draws them together in a frenzy of lust, perversity, and depravity.
    aCW is still posting, so I can't say that's the craziest post of the year, but if Chrys comes back and takes a swing that one is easily in the hunt.

    A great comedy duo back in the days of Vaudeville, but they never got to make the film debut that might have launched them because of the rating system.


    Sweet went on to design Valentine's Day cards. Salty was arrested several times on morality charges in and around the Boston area before being elected to Congress.

    It's a hard world out there, anna.
