“Of course Bib Coal does not care about workers: should workers die, they will be replaced by younger, stronger, cheaper workers--all the better for business. That is what Capitalism has come to. It doesn't have to happen, but we allowed it. Welcome to America. The land of the disabled.”

“We need to motivate students? What motivation is there to have a job? Money? Education is its own motivation: other countries' children know that--and they are already surpassing us. I suppose we just must learn the hard way; on the other hand, learning from others' experience has never been the American way.”

Bradlinsky on May 9, 2014 at 10:40:54

“Yes, that's right. Do you think kids are just born with things like motivation, dedication, and all that stuff in addition to the importance of an education? Not hardly. We must teach them, and part of that teaching is what I've said, above, and the other part is finding out WHAT motivates them.

“We--at least most women--know the answer to this one: because most men pride themselves on remaining children for as long as possible, when women cannot perform the "Mommy" role, many men go on to find someone who will.”

“Obviously, the governor--and anyone would vote for him in the future--cares more about their children's conformity to their backward beliefs than the fact that thsoe children will be laughed at, derided, and denied substantial employment all their lives because of their outdated beliefs. Perhaps, these people have accepted that America will--for the foreseeable future--fall further and further behind in education and progress. Perhaps all the evidence we need is that the Cern Collider is located in Switzerland, because it was rejected by its first choice of locations--the US.

As an educator, I have not accepted perpetual backwardness in education, yet. I will probably never come to terms with it, so I will keep fighting the governor and all his allies.”

“No matter how you slice it, no can dispute that war would be impossible without the assent of masses of people to kill on command. Justification? You can try, I suppose.”

“Don't want to serve people you think are evil? How about adulterers or the rich? Remember, the rich are the group most commonly vilified by Jesus--or have you forgotten that it is "easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter heaven? "”

“Mr. Thiel is right: low minimum wage assures that people depend on government programs. What he doesn't understand is that Republicans want it that way. That way, Republicans can rip away these programs, causing mass starvation and death--resulting in fewer votes for Democrats. Premature deaths of the poor only accelerates the disappearance of the middle class: Republican voter majority protected. Problem solved.”

“I have been saying this all along, but people want to believe in the supernatural, in God, in ESP, in UFOs, in fairies, monsters, and ghosts. They will never stop. Let them believe whatever their fevered imagination dictates; it makes them happy, like an invisible friend.”

“Good luck to you young people. My advice? Learn to cook; it is easy, rewarding, comforting--and much less gross.

But until you get there, youth still has a every active immune system which will usually successfully filter pathogens. Watch out, though, when you get older and your warranty is not as new. Disease happens, and, especially when you are older, your clean-up systems are not as meticulous as they once were.”

“Ayn Rand, heroine of the right, wrote a book named "The Virtue of Selfishness." Of course, they are selfish; they idealize and (by their own words) practice selfishness.”

mspender on Nov 10, 2013 at 03:37:40

“Except Ayn Rand was, very openly, an atheist and strongly anti-religion. So, unlike the far right so-called Christians, she was not a total hypocrite...not in the religious beliefs area, at least.”
