    Left Right, Right Wrong; More education please.



    I watched an hour of "All American Presidential Forum" on PBS last night.

    It was from Howard University, all Black, all Democrat. It will be an interesting 8 years for sure.

    Hillary got the only standing ovation when she said...

    "Let me just put this in perspective: If HIV-AIDS were the leading cause of death of white women between the ages of 25 and 34 there would be an outraged, outcry in this country,".

    Well yes, they would stop having sex with strangers I suppose, and test their partner in case HIV snuck in some other way.

    Stopping having sex like barn animals was not an option voiced. Supposing that they were ignorant of HIV's causes was.. and of course, more education is called for. I think a dime pamplet could explain the situation.

    What the Dems want is the money we now spend on war to be spent on education. Get it??? MORE EDUCATION. Apparently no one is getting educated. There was no advice though regarding what will replace the need for war. Just quit it I suppose.

    They are high high high on education. Since studies show that early education improves later results, they have applied their thinking to extrapolate this to education starting at birth. A few thought that 4 year olds gotta get to school. A few others countered that that is not nearly early enough... it must start at birth by educating the parents. Birth to grave, they will be there for us.

    Without exception they didn't like that day's Supreme Court decision regarding forced placement at schools based on race. Having one's race determine which school they attend is still very important to them.

    One mentioned that a Dem in the White House would surely be able to stuff the court with liberals again.

    And who is that guy from Alaska? He wants to abolish Income Tax and legalize marywanna. I happen to agree with him, but with half a percent in the polls, I don't think it's going to happen.

    Oh yes, and all agreed that there are too many Blacks in prison, and mandatory sentences need to be mitigated. I agree too. But I could never vote for these folks.

    A graphic novel which may interest visitors to your blog is available from:

    www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk

    'The Least Among Us' explores the response of the Church to suffering in itself and a preview is available at: http://www.all-creatures.org/fol/ann-theleast.html

    Whilst the book challenges certain attitudes and dogma it remains a Catholic (if underground) comic.

    All best wishes,
