Such a sad commentary on the way our society and culture treats people.

Instead of luggage why not give them mandated government-issued love? That'll work.

Or better yet, grant their guardians the right to abort them prior to their 18th birthday?

This is what happens when young men and women don't know about "the birds and the bees" and their own personal relation to their actions and the byproducts of their nature and other things...

Oppression, loneliness, isolation, no love and, maybe if you are lucky, a donated grip to move your crap around....

The progressive idea of family life writ large.

So sad.

Forward.

I'm so happy this fellow has survived the 14 years in Gov care. He will be a shinning example to those who would have wished him aborted. I applaud him for trying as an individual to help others. I'm sure he helps others a lot. He may even help you Mr-Butcher if you needed it.

There have been moments Mr. Butcher when I have thought about actually taking you seriously as a human being and commenter on issues.

My mistake.

While in the outward appearence this seems to be a nice idea, to a child it could be quite upsetting. Whats the one thing a child prays for growing up? Stability. Keeping your own luggage around would be a costant reminder of how tenuous their lifestyle might be. You have to look at throw a the eys of a child. Gee thanks dude, so where am I off to now?

You're right.

I think I was way off base with that post. I was trying to express a broader point but failed miserably.

I shouldn't have said it. If I had it do over I would have refrained.

I apologize to everyone it offended and to Mr. Kirkpatrick in particular.

I am sorry.

I've written comments here that were not read as intended. It happens. This post (yours not mine) shows some class. I hope others give credit where it's due.

I can go along with that, although leaving people in the dark on the real intent is somewhat puzzling. I think I know what it was. And I think its about 180 degress from a sensible interpretation.

But wouldn't it be great to be able to toss (or burn) the luggage when stability is reached? Sometimes reminders are good to have around, lest we forget (like the doofuses (sic)in washington have). What was your childhood like that you prayed for stability? If it was that bad, and others experienced the same, I feel for you. I think it makes the case for a degradation of our society that MORE children are growing up with this need for "stability", than 50 years ago. Looking for your response, Dude.

Fifty years ago, in some states, we were just about to allow Black Americans to drink from the same drinking fountains as the White Americans... Ahhhh the good old days, where whites were whites, and you were... watching Leave it to Beaver thinking that is what real life was. Truth is Ward was banging his secretary, smacking around June for not having the dinner on the table and Eddie, Wally, and the Beav were throwing rocks at the neighborhood Jew for killing Jesus and the blacks knew where they belonged. Oh yes, the good old moral days.

My background was typical stuff, just as Dude has described, but more like Father Knows Best. My older brother and sister could of played the parts perfect. We did move around alot which in some areas I'm greatful for but in others it sucked. Dear old dad was an engineer in high demand as a result of the Manhattan Project. My stance on stability comes from studying human behavior, not something we dwell on a lot in this country ergo racial divides in all sectors. Like Islamists we spend to much time in the GOOD book, not enough time learning about ourselves.

What makes my world sad? You're the one that thinks the world is going to poop, you're the one that sounds pretty sad and miserable. My world is making progress. 54 years ago the lovings were forced to leave the state of Virginia, their crime? Being in love and getting married. That is the 50 years ago that you want to return to.

No it's not. But returning to the Roman Empire model is not the way to go either. The world has done all this before (progressivism) and it didn't work.
