Cute response. Your party had to vote on whether or not to included Jesus in their platform, with the Republicans it's an understood, no vote needed!

"Why don't you guys study like the kids from Africa?"
In a moment of exasperation last spring, I asked that question to a virtually all-black class of 12th-graders who had done horribly on a test I had just given. A kid who seldom came to class -- and was constantly distracting other students when he did -- shot back: "It's because they have fathers who kick their butts and make them study."
Another student angrily challenged me: "You ask the class, just ask how many of us have our fathers living with us." When I did, not one hand went up.
I was stunned. These were good kids; I had grown attached to them over the school year. It hit me that these students, at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, understood what I knew too well: The lack of a father in their lives had undermined their education. The young man who spoke up knew that with a father in his house he probably wouldn't be ending 12 years of school in the bottom 10 percent of his class with a D average. His classmate, normally a sweet young woman with a great sense of humor, must have long harbored resentment at her father's absence to speak out as she did. Both had hit upon an essential difference between the kids who make it in school and those who don't: parents.
My students knew intuitively that the reason they were lagging academically had nothing to do with race, which is the too-handy explanation for the achievement gap in Alexandria. And it wasn't because the school system had failed them. They knew that excuses about a lack of resources and access just didn't wash at the new, state-of-the-art,$100 million T.C. Williams, where every student is given a laptop and where there is open enrollment in Advanced Placement and honors courses. Rather, it was because their parents just weren't there for them -- at least not in the same way that parents of kids who were doing well tended to be.
TSF, that's a very nice story; however, I'm at a loss how to respond. Are you saying black children are at a greater risk to fail because there's no father in the home? if so, as I, you'll be labeled a racist. I'm going to post a link that shows the statistics that even this mathematically challenged Republican can understand and again, I'll be labeled a racist for pointing out the unusually high % for whatever reason black children are raised in a single parent family.

http://datacenter.kidscount.org/data/acrossst... #

More importantly to me, it's not about the percentage, but why are so many black children raised in single parent families and why daily are Caucasians, if this forum is a sampling of the difference in opinions, are crucified because of the failure of the black children in school?

Now I know there are plenty of families black and white where mom and dad are working to make ends meet, but surely as we all learned, there has to be time for our children and material things don't always matter, but one on one time does.

Yeah Waco, it was between you and Jesus and He could walk on water and you couldn't so He won by default. The Democrats already have Obama, if you're to believe him, MSM and loyal followers, he can walk on water and we had to level the playing field.:)

Your party voted God in the platform thinking it would reduce the public's perception of your your hostility toward the poor, Hispanics, women and youth. As we see, it was not help.

Next time, Pro, you may want to put 3 or 4 gods on your platform to make sure everyone gets covered.

If they didn't have such a man crush on Obama and didn't truly believe he's God, this could almost be funny. If more people worshiped God as they do Obama, our country would be better off.

I have no reason to explain myself to you, again. Your assertion that civil rights have been violated but not proven in a court of law by a jury of our peers. And your opinions mean precisely dick, blackface.
Katie and I are leaving them nothing. We have paid for and provided all we are ever going to provide. They can earn their wealth and provide for themselves now, since they are adults.
Just like Katie and I did.
What I don't understand about you AZ, is that you know you and I will never agree or see eye to eye on anything, yet you keep trying to generate some sort of response as if you have no other facets in your life that show you some sort of attention? Are you really that pathetic, starved of attention or in dire need of validation that you are relying on Topix to fill that gap?
It was rhetorical question but you answered it already...
I can believe your not leaving your poor little rich kiddos nada. Wouldn't want to subject them to an estate tax. Now would you? Hey Silver, you should have named your kiddos nickel, dime, quarter and fifty cent piece. Then you could have referred to them as "The Chain-ge Gang".

Allen, it's all semantics. You say you drink alchohol, does that make you an alcoholic? I'm by no means saying that someone that commits an act of rape is not a rapist, however, by the example I gave you about drinking, doesn't make you an alcoholic. It's all a play on words and for the president on this occasion, he used a play on words to give him an out because he was clueless about what really happened. As a matter of fact, I read an article yesterday about a football player for the Dallas Cowboys that was pulled over for DUI. His alcohol level was twice the legal limit, yet they were still saying he was held on "suspicion of driving drunk." Twice the legal limit is more than suspicion in my realm of thinking and they didn't refer to him as an alcoholic, only a person they were suspicious of driving while impaired. At the end of the day, he was still drunk as a skunk while driving.
Terror and rape are acts of violence and with intent. An alcoholic yes has the potential of becoming violent but, his only intent is to have another drink. In the case of the football player maybe not an alcoholic, just an occasional display of irresponsibility and an ego the size of Texas. He also by driving drunk could have had an accident that may have killed four or more but not out of intent but impairment of good judgement.

Let me now set the record straight on myself. No I DO NOT do drugs reguardless of what Silver thinks and I have NO criminal background whatsoever. Furthermore, I have NEVER even had a traffic violation in all my years of driving. Every great now and then I will have a beer with my meal or a mixed drink but it is in the privacy of my home. It is because I am responsible that I am a menace to the courts. No crime no dime.

Give me a break.I'm far from a fanatic about politicians, of both parties.One party acts like its the"Party of God", the other party acts as if its leader is the"Second Coming."I'm sorry bacon, the whole thing is sometimes amusing!
