If you want to be safer, take responsibility for your own safety. Stop being such a pussy.

the only thing the constitution was made to do is to explicitly establish what the government cannot do. The right to keep and bear arms is a basic human right. Not necessarily isolated to firearms, don't be so closed. You don't understand , you cannot just "give up" a few rights to be safer. how do you suppose you would be safer? in fact if you gave up just one of your first 10 rights, you probably wouldn't be able to post your disillusioned responses without them having to be approved by a resident adviser.

let's not make this about anything in particular. Let's just say, that in America, You DONT give up your rights FOR ANYTHING. EVER. PERIOD.

You must misunderstand me.
I never said it wasnt biased. Im just pointing out that regardless of what the kid had written, someone would be able to called it biased.

Offtopic: It all skews to the right, its the US ^^

"It's biased to not want to give up basic human rights"

The constitution does not discuss many basic human rights. Owning a gun is not a basic human right. Voting is not a basic human right. The right to a trial by jury in civil matters over $20 is not a basic human right.

The constitution discusses very specific legal rights.

I agree that all of those make things better, but only slightly. I'd be willing to give them up for a guarantee of more safety.

Do I want congress to be able to give itself higher wages? No. But are you honestly telling me you wouldn't allow them to if it made you safer somehow?

Essersmith said, "I Wonder what would have happened if the child had written : I will not give up any of my constitutional rights, to be safer or more secure.
Thats just as biased, but probably more along the lines of what the veteran father had went to war over. "

Good God man! It's biased to not want to give up basic human rights guaranteed by a country's constitutional document? I thought the left was all over people's butts for human rights violations (as long as it's not abortion). Now though, because the issue here skews to the right it's a big problem? I'll continue once I dig myself out of the hypocrisy.

This is one of those rare cases where I have to agree with the Conservatives.

I don't want my child to be taught Right Wing propaganda. At the same time, I can't expect them to teach her left wing politics either. The school system needs to be free of all religion and politics. IMO.

@HolyGod

7-Now WHAT the HELL is wrong with option of jury trial in civil cases?
12-Slow down bub, swing states have NOT gone out fashion, yet. In fact I recommend states implement instant runoff voting in this matter.
16-Really? Seems odd coming from you, but for once I actually agree.
18-It's already repealed. Why are you bringing it up?
20-Just curious why this one?
22-I disagree, in fact we could use MORE term limits.
25-I doubt very seriously repealing this will change much. Govt will simply revert to the precedent it was based on.
27-Dude, fu<k no, congress does not need the ability to raise it's salary within a session.

"Now whenever I have someone coming in and trying to pollute my child's mind With biased opinions... there's no education in that."

Yeah because whatever you teach Your child, is not biased on Your experiences AT ALL...

I Wonder what would have happened if the child had written : I will not give up any of my constitutional rights, to be safer or more secure.
Thats just as biased, but probably more along the lines of what the veteran father had went to war over.

It seems the teacher failed at teaching and the father failed at parenting.

The parent:
"Oh no, instead of taking responsibility over my own child I'll be lazy and scream at the school system for not raising my kid the way I want them to."

To anyone else:
It's called a social contract.

I WOULD happily give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer.

Key word being SOME.

I'd give up 7, 12, 16, 18, 19, 20, 22, 25, and 27 if it made me safer.

Just kidding about 19 ladies. ;)

Hey I agree that temp4comment should delete that comment.

IAB shouldn't be posting peoples personal information.

That's only for harassment purposes that regardless of the justification should never be done to anyone.

You f*cking sad Temp with no life. In a week you won't care about this yet she'll still remember being harassed.

This is why you need to re-teach some things at home. I'm talking about fundamentals and topics that are politically sensitive.

@LandOGriffon: That's NOT the "Liberal Way"

"I did NOT have sex with that woman... Miss Lewinski..."

Remember that?
Lie, lie, lie, then lie some MORE! If they cannot PROVE it? It didn't happen!

Notice how he had to spell out WHICH woman he was accused (rightfully) of having sex with? There was a LONG LIST and he denied EVERY one! Except under oath, when he suddenly remembered: "Oh YEAH! I had a mistress for 10 years! Go figure! Hahaha! Must have slipped my mind while NOT under oath..."

HINT: Look up "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" ffs...

This is what is we're being brainwashed to believe even as adults, but it's just not explicitly stated like this. Read between the lines of all the fear-mongering and how the solution always means less freedom in way or another. I guess they're just cutting to the chase with school kids.

Just read the article. I'm disgusted that the teacher is sitting there denying that it was she who had the students write the statement, claiming it was the guest attorney who came to speak that day. Then all the children agree that it was, in fact, the teacher and not the attorney who had them write it. I really hate liars. If you are going to do something, accept the outcome and don't try to blame someone else.

temp4comment: That is completely un-called for, although I totally disagree with the teacher.. However you need to be banned for that type of behavior. What if someone here decided to return the favor? I really hope so. You're an ass.

Example Number 1,345,279 of why the USA's school system (And EVERY other school system in the Western World) has be taken over by leftists...

That children OR adults of any age should be subjected to this heinous propaganda? Is sickening...

But to FORCIBLY INDOCTRINATE CHILDREN is the lowest of the lowest...

Why is it always Florida?
Can't we find a way to chop it off and let Florida just drift away?

That graph is pure propaganda. True freedom is entirely compatible with safety, and very low freedom gives no safety at all. Do you really think that those in the Soviet Union were safe?
