Socialists, who were very active in the public school movement, began operating in America as early as 1829, before the word socialism was even invented. Now their movement has push to all out communism. Were government schools established because private society and families refused to educate the children, resulting in lifelong ignorance and illiteracy? Were the motives of the reformers pure, selfless and concerned only with the well-being of the children? Surely, after these reforms were in place, school attendance rose, illiteracy disappeared and the quality of education vastly improved. None of those things happened!
No, government schools were not established out of any dire need for them but rather for a variety of crass religious, political and economic motives. They were not immaculately conceived but rather were born out of a toxic stew of religious absolutism, Prussian militarism, utopian socialist leveling and special interest greed and power lust. The main point is that relations among people in government schools are coercive and involuntary. Those with legal power tell those without legal power what to do. Those without power have little choice but to comply. Slavery
Not sure how true your story of public schools creation came to be, but this does not mean it has no good or need. It also does not mean anyone is forced into some sort of slavery.
Now tell us about a country with no public schools and has an educated public please?

There still is no science supporting creation from nothing. You may interchange energy and mass but not have either appear from nothing.

No republican president has visited Israel in their first term. George W. Bush didn't visit until the eighth year of his presidency.
The only two US presidents to make an official state visit to Israel during their first term were Carter and Clinton.
Ronald Reagan and George H. Bush never visited Israel during their terms in office.
I am sure the Fox news-bots will never get wind of this.

Running is when you refuse to debate the issue, as you often do. Keep making excuses.

You can believe as you like. I have no motive to change you or your thoughts. I know what I know and offer no defense of that. The fact that you do not believe is of no concern to me. I am fairly well informed in scientific matters. I see proof of evolution through mutation and natural selection, in recapitulation, in fossels, in genetics etc.. I see no reason why God could not have used mutation and natural selection as his methodology. I do not even imagine the process is finished or that "magic" has been employed at any point in creation. Why would God need "magic"? I do not know where God came from. I don't even know if his name is Jehovah, Oden, Thor, Alah, the Great Spirit etc. His existence has been proven to me and God is as real as anything else. You must be aware that from a stand point of logic, you have no way to prove a negative (that God does not exist). So the question will never be answered for you unless you someday also know.

Their is absolutely zero evidence a god had any hand in evolution. Their is absolutely zero evidence of any god period. This is why the concept of "creationism" and "intelligent design" is not science and is not allowed to be taught as science in the public schools. It is hocus pocus.

You make absolutely no sense as usual because you know nothing. This is why you are waco and I am Mike. Now go find your Boy George doll's penis and play with yourself. This is what you do know, just as I know. These are the facts, nothing more, nothing less, absolute pure energy.

"Obama paid the expected lip service, referring to the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace process, saying "peace must come to the Holy Land". However, it is expected that Obama will not make any grand plans to initiate peace talks."
This from a Palestinian newspaper, I guess the media there is the same here, just a tad more....blunt. My "opinion" as before, stands, the President's comment still follows the "hope and change" line from 5 years ago. Like his budget plan, a "peace plan" not there.

Typical socialist/communist mindset, blame the children and parent for a broke, sick and twitted government system. A government system that is dumbing down America and destroying the future of our children, not unlike Hitlerís youth Nazi schools.

You make no sense as usual. Are you or are you not the very same one who voted for Obama? It figures that you would try and dawg the guy. Come back when you have something of interest to talk about. I think the best way to spend your time is to help waco find his Boy George penis.
