Another bill that punishes young Americans cheated by a corrupt education system and a likewise politician to enact such a ridiculous bill. How about a bill that means NO child will be allowed to drop out of school period. All children Will get the same education if(public. I bet Ford don't mind the illegals having a drivers license.

Illegals cannot get a driver's license. Education is offered equally to all, the outcome depends on the individual. What's your solution? This way they at least have some incentive to stay in school and not ride around all day smoking dope and stealing, getting pregnant or otherwise ruining their lives before they have a chance to live a good one.

Illegals do get license's. Education is not offered equal. My solution is in my statement above. The smoking dope and stealing means they already have a ruined life, and I'm 99.9 % sure, they live in poverty. Just the tax money on Cigarettes and alcohol alone would put every kid in America in a fine school, with real teachers. AS of now, that money feeds some fat cats and their cronies. The system sucks and judging by your statement; your Idea is, everything is fine, we just need more power to control peoples daily lives. P.S. Anything else you feel a need to say, please direct it toward someone who has less knowledge of the system than I; your first sentence relieved you of any credibility..just my opinion..

Opinions are like armpits, we all have them, some of them stink like yours. This is another step called ACCOUNTABILITY. While you raise some good points money has zip to do with it. Some of the biggest failures and slackers I know are sons/daughters of the middle to upper middle class. They drop out because dad's money will take care of them. With no DL he will HAVE TO. It isn't like it was years ago. I announced over dinner one night I would be dropping out after my Junior year. Next thing I knew I was seated in the same chair only looking at the ceiling from my back, legs in the air. Dad was forced to drop out during the depression, he said NO child of his was quitting anything. And illegals do NOT GET LICENSES LEGALLY! I have seen some of those "licenses", they are forgeries. The state requires proof of live birth in the US to get one.

Of course they don't get them legally! That's the part about being illegal;and doing illegal things, like trespassing and taking up jobs, space and demanding rights they don't have. You had a father that forced you to stay in school; that's the stay in school rule "period" No bill was needed to keep you there! just firm tough love. The nanny state has taken that away. Your well meaning daddy would go to jail now. I'd like for you to take a look around, the father head is in prison. To many fathers are caught up in this damn war on poverty and THE WAR ON DRUGS. The countries health issue has been made a MONEY making deal for the countries Justice system, by growing it into the bottomless hole we throw money into to prosecute victimless crime, while starving the education system. I wont comment on the stinkin arm pit; I do kinda have an odor after that jog. Anytime you think money has nothing to do with nothing; you've never been broke.

Never been broke? LOL, I've been below broke at times in my youth. If it cost a nickle to crap I'd have to throw up. Marijuana is not a victimless crime. I grew into adulthood in the 60's and lived in Southern California then. marijuana has wrecked MILLIONS of lives. Ever see guys stay home with their parents until the parents or they DIE! I had three friends who did. Any substance in the wrong hands can be addictive and make you stupid, even food. You make some excellent points but legalizing dope is not one of them. My opinion.

What about the other things that are addictive and make you stupid, obese, or otherwise not of your liking, shouldn't they be illegal. My wife, she spends extra money on healthy food, then tops it off with a snickers bar about a foot long. I think candy should be illegal, but I'm smart enough to know it would cause blood to run in the streets because of candy cartels. The drug has wrecked a few lives, but not like the law has, this law is the failure of the people to hold Government responsible for good sound leadership and judgement. Not having this for all of my 61 years has led to the almost total destruction of two generations of Americans and the middle class once held by them. When I say broke, I don't mean missing a few paydays. I'm talking a run of four or five years of lower than whale poo wages or no wages; when all you own will fit in one black garbage bag? Now that we have laws that makes people felons and eliminates them from the job market for smoking a gawd damn weed, please...I hate a drunk worse than anything, well a gambler is way up there with a drunk, but, I put up with them, I know there out there and I avoid them, but I sure would not step on that right they have to partake of it being as I left my blood on a battlefield trying to help gaurantee that right.

Nuff said. You're a very rational guy. Thanks for your service. I've had more than casual dealings with dope. I'm a retired cop and yes, everything I woned fit it a canvas laundry bag for two years.

Thank you, I too, was a cop, after the military for a while. The problem was; I was a "COP" (citizen on patrol)in a FOP organization, and of course we clashed. The whole of the FOP is a flawed corrupt ideology that I will not discuss; as I have no respect for them, or what they trying to achieve. I had to move on and up into the Hazardous Materials Management field, of which I now am retired from...

I'm no fan of most FOP Lodges. Some are very good for the men/women.
