Florida Lawmaker Says Common Core Will Turn Kids Gay

Florida Lawmaker Says Common Core Will Turn Kids Gay

Commented May 19, 2014 at 20:38:58 in Politics

“Have you seen the way that common core goes about trying to teach something as simple as subtraction?”

Still5150 on May 19, 2014 at 21:21:27

“Common Core does not tell anyone how to teach subtraction. Common core sets standards for what children should know and understand at certain grade levels. How to teach those skills, text books, etc., is all up to the local school districts. The problem with many of Common Core's detractors is that they don't really know what Common Core is. Read up and see if any of those wild math problems you have seen on facebook, or elsewhere are actually part of Common Core.

“I think the fact that the term "Middle Class" was clearly defined by both candidates in the last election as people who make between $200,000-250,000 a year led a lot of people to realize that they were not in this 'middle class' that politicians speak of (which is really unsurprising given that the "middle class" starts at 4 times the median household income of the United States).”

“Not at all... what it points out is that the right to bear arms is not some sort of license for massacres to happen... massacres happen regardless... so fighting against the right to bear arms is a pointless exercise.”

donderek on Sep 14, 2013 at 18:54:37

“Rightfully said that the right to bear arms is not a license for massacres. We all believe in that. And nobody is fighting against the right to bear arms. At least not me. But I concur with the study that prevalence of gun ownership raises also the risk of homicides. Doesn't matter whether these be massacres or not.”

“Sure you can. There were also 10 more worst massacres even during the time of Jesus Christ. But then those massacres would render the Second Amendment irrelevant. The pillar of support for right to bear weapons in the US.”

“"gun violence" is a smokescreen... who really cares if you are being mugged by a guy with a gun or a guy with a knife, your wallet is being taken either way.

Look at Britain, they have the strictest gun control laws in Europe and very few guns on the street... and it is true that 'gun violence' is much lower than in the USA. However when Violent Crimes are looked at as a whole (which includes 'gun violence' along with all other forms of violent crime) the results are not even close... you are one and a half to two times more likely to be the victim of a violent crime in Britain as you are in the USA.”

Chief Tunginchic on Sep 14, 2013 at 02:51:38

“I'm thinking given the choice I would pick the knife-wielding mugger. Not that muggers are the only threat, of course. There doesn't seem to be too many cases of drive-by knifings or innocent kids killed by a stray knife coming through a wall.”

donderek on Sep 14, 2013 at 02:23:29

“More likely to be a victim of what violent crime in GB? Mob attack? acid attack? Fist fight? They all pale in comparisons to massacres in the US. 5 of the 10 worst massacres in the world took place right here in the US of A.”

“Hi Dutchman,

Now do Britain (the nation with the most restrictive gun control laws in Europe)... and ignore the red herring that is 'gun crime'. Instead focus on Violent Crimes as a whole (which includes gun crime statistics, plus all other instances of violent crime because lets face it, who the hell really cares whether you are getting shot to death or beaten to death with a club, your still going to be dead either way, the same can be said of whether your mugger had a gun or a knife, your wallet is still gone). Taking population size into account which nation are you more likely to be the victim of a Violent Crime in?”

“He makes it clear he did nothing wrong (a moral term), not that he did nothing illegal. Not all laws are good ones nor should we blindly give up our conscience just because a bad law written too broadly and passed by a naïve congress and implemented by a minimum of two administrations has been passed. Our own national experience proves that.”
