Why would they do that?

Yes, we need an education (college degree) to excell, but anyone can become a parent. Too many parents are doing a terrible job and innocent babies are dying and/or suffering. Makes me wanna puke.

They should make the parents drink soda until they are dead. If you kill someone, you should be made to die the same way.

Pop kills, whether it is pops to the head, pop in the stomach, or abuse by Pop.

If only that were possible. Seems we aren't really teaching what needs to be learned. Now a days that also includes reading and writing or how to count back change $$$.

When we are children, we are forced to do as parents and teachers tell us.
There is a time and a place for your sort of humor.

No that wasn't humorous when a child has died.

YOU = me? Really? You don't think I've a sense of humor?
Instead of going off topic here let us start a new thread and discuss what
humor is and when it's inappropriate. Shall we Sir?
