Let's see here. I've been to three different cities in Australia. Perth. Tasmania. Sydney. Been to the Middle East, France, Italy, Spain. What else? Panama. Diego Garcia, which is nothing but a sand bar in the Pacific, or was it the Atlantic? Most boring place I've ever been. Pusan, and half a dozen others I can't remember. And Uncle Sam paid for it all. :)
Unfortunately, it doesn't prevent you from stalking me, and giving me a hard time. You had no reason to say what you did, except to try to hurt my feelings and make me look bad. You're nothing but a angry little troll. I pity you.
@Haroush I forgot to reply to you earlier. You asked me whether we need the government to be successful. In theory, No we do not, however due to our society and culture. Schooling is mandatory if anybody wants to become successful. You could argue for homeschooling, but you miss out on the social benefits provided by interacting with people, which is pretty much an everyday thing.
Ya, I do now what that is. I will never support parents in brainwashing their kids into teaching some ridiculous ideology that promotes hate. The last thing we need is terrorists in our country. We had plenty of them back in 2001.
Too much of anything is bad. Giving people too much freedom will lead to Anarchy. I support freedom of speech, but that education should be extra, not be replaced with what the American education system gives.
Well, it goes against my principles in fighting racism. But I agree to some extent. Unfortunately, some races are more likely to do certain thing. Its not because of their skin color, but their culture. We should try to help them come out of that.
Well then yes, I do support it too some extent. But, I think it would be more beneficial if we encourage those certain groups to pursue freedom and success by getting an education, working hard, and being happy. Which, is why we need to improve our public schools. Some poor areas have such horrible schools and school systems, that it is basically impossible for them to get an education. Because of this, they resort to drugs, gangs, robbery. When we can fix that, we can fix a lot of problems in America. Police brutality would dramatically decrease, and its a win-win situation for everyone.
Perhaps, there are poor people out there who could benefit from education.. Though what do you do with those who really screw up bad while they are young and now can't fathom the idea of getting a college degree? When I grew up, I didn't have everything. In fact, there was a lot of bad influences around me. Guess what? I screwed up and made a few mistakes.. But, do you know what really gave me freedom? The freedom I had been looking for came from trade programs. Think of it this way, there is plenty of trade programs out there. If there is trades out there that range from being a computer tech, to being an electrician or plumber.. Why not? These trades pay great. I know of some electricians who started out at 18 an hour. Some of the experienced ones that I know of make 6 digit figures a year. It's something to think about. Remember not everyone is college material. So keep that in mind when you think about education. Remember too, there are other jobs out there on the extreme side. For example, being an Arctic Sea fisherman. It pays great, but it is made for certain people. When I retire you know what I am going to do? I want to be a history teacher. You ought to look up all the different types of careers that exist. You'd be surprised by some of the great paying careers that don't require you to have a college degree.
