How do we know they were not treated as humans. Is it because the government expects us to blindly immunize our children like they are cattle? The parents did a lot wrong here, but can the government actually do it better. The same, only different...

That's exactly how the early settlers lived in this country when it was being developed.

What's wrong with a little diversity?

Why should everyone be programmed by government schools?

Where's the tolerance for people with different life styles?

Different life styles? Okay, let someone lock you up for 10 years and make sure you get no health care when you are sick,no socialization, and see how you feel about accepting "different life styles" as you call it.

Well pal, I`ve got news for ya. Those kids will be getting government health care now through social services of some sort. Guess what? Those kids are going to need it too.

Government administered health care was not responcable for those kids being hid and out of sight. If you read the story, you know even the neighbors that lived their next to them for years didn`t know a thing about those kids.

And you attach health care to the issue, and use it to advance a political agenda?

You have a right to your thoughts on public health care, but to use it that way makes you an idiot.

Ya, you are an idiot!

Diversity?! You've GOT to be kidding... They so-called parents have caused life-long mental issues for these innocent children. Solitary confinement does not equal loving parenting...
