Socialism in your face!

Right out of an Ayn Rand book. She, of course, more than likely has no chi'dren of her own. Inner cities could use her philosophy, maybe she should take it there in person.

Yep - been seeing quite a few articles on this subject lately ...

Especially after the idiotic comments made by .... the MSNBC host (surprise surprise! :roll: ) and that idiotic "Lean Forward" video they made: http://www.theblaze.com/blog/2013/04/05 ... ice-versa/

What crazy times we live in. Can you even believe this is happening in America??? :no1:

I guess it depends on what the whole clip or meaning behind it is, when I was growing up everyone (it seemed even outside my immediate area) knew who I was or more directly who I was the child of. My neighbors had no problem grabbing me & reading me the riot act if I was doing something wrong & my biggest fear was that they would call my parents & I'd get it twice but even worse for embarrassing them. Heck back then a teacher could lay a hand or paddle on you for that matter, we were taught respect for others & their property, somewhere along the line (maybe too many lawyers) those that we no longer trusted to discipline our children we now what to carry guns :shock: . I kind of believe that everyone should consider themselves as part of the community & become involved to some degree instead of just sitting by & utilizing what may be the good & complaining about we consider the bad, to some degree we are all a product of our environment. :? Not trying to get too involved in this but as always with a short clip it all depends on what meaning you want to get out of it.

I would agree with what you said . I think to assume that the meaning of the article was "WE know better than YOU how to raise your kids" rather than we are responsible as a community or society to be an extra set of eyes and ears for our neighbors in helping to keep our kids on the "right" track or maybe the "left" :P.
I think the message is "It takes a village" and I have to agree. ;)

I clearly see what side of the fence she is on.

It takes an intact family to raise a child. If we get that right, the "it takes a village" thing falls right into line ;)

If leftists are so concerned with community responsibility why do they actively do things to destroy communities like school bussing and charter schools?

Communities, just like markets or individuals must remain free to compete and develop on their own for maximal progress.

Franco, how long has those things you mention been going on & if they were only left then why hasn't the right ever fixed the issues? Like I always say it's so easy to just sit back & critique.

Because it's not about "communities". When she says "children belong to the community", she means "children belong to the state".

Because there is NO left or right in this country. It's Big Government, and everyone else.

I do think there are a few genuine conservatives and a lot who give it lip service. Conservatives of both parties have never had enough political power to right the obvious wrongs of the left.The more government gives away the harder it is to stop them.

To do good is noble and it is even more noble to tell others how to do good; never mind that the road to hell is still paved with good intentions.

The stock market is propped up by the Fed with phony money while the bulk of the population increasingly has to rely on food stamps and unemployment benefits. When the joy ride ends it will be a long way down. The wicked corporations will get the blame.

Round two, with MHP at the helm ... :sick:

Wow has that channel gone off the deep end! If we make it through these times as a nation, the media should all be tried for treason.
