I brought up education levels of Blacks, latinos and young people....I think we all agree that these typically aren't the sharpest knives in the bunch.

Opportunity creates criminals for the most part. The black market creates a helluva lot of opportunity.

As opposed to what right now?

There's plenty of highly educated people who fiercely oppose the WOD. Namely, the person this thread is about.

I don't know. I wasn't aware that I had to have a solution to be concerned about a problem.

Actually, if I remember correctly, don't the states largely choose their own curriculums now? If so, I'm a dumb ass.

They do, but most states have recently joined together to form a consortium in order to establish a common curriculum.

ETA: And, ironically, it's not states like Mississippi, which has a relatively rigorous curriculum, you have to be worried about. It's states like Florida.

Can we agree that I'm not as whacky a liberal as you thought?

I can agree with this. You're good people in my book and not a rude hack like DA and Rex. This board could use more democrat, liberal posters like you.

I've never thought of you as an ideological liberal, more opposed to conservatives. People tend to begin to identify themselves with the "opposition" sometimes.

I can see that. That's largely due to the make up of the board. Things I agree with I don't comment on because I'll be one of 235234534523 people saying it. Things I disagree on I get hammered on.

That's some racist shite if I've ever seen it. Skin color has zero effect on intelligence. Education levels have more to do with how much money do you have, and do you have the time to go get educated. Plus an education isn't a guarantee of making more money.


In my opinion being a pot dealer right now may be the most fundamental examples of american patriotism. Let us not forget some of our founding fathers were smugglers. Also Pot has been illegal for like 75 years.... for the rest of human history it was legal. A little more food for thought on pot prohibition as is right now, pot is affordable and readily available on a mass scale so really prohibition hasn't done anything to stop people from using it if they want to.

I've never understood the critique that Ron Paul is too ideological. All the man has ever promoted is that the Constitution be followed.

re: ron paul farewell address to congress
Just watched the whole thing. Great speech. He summed it up perfectly at the end: envy is leading to class warfare and intolerance is leading to the curtailing of our social freedoms. Also enjoyed the polite clapping at the end from all of the politicians that he pretty much just spent 45 minutes calling a bunch of loopy cunts.

The current Americans fear following the constitution. Most Americans are terrified of actual freedom because then they can't impose their beliefs on others.

The foundation of the constitution, freedom and liberty is personal responsibility, which has been purposely bred out of Americans.
