it is difference of opinion that makes horse races."

If we all thought the same..we would be automotons...Yes we can, yes we can...
 -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    Yes we can, yes we can think differently. Thank goodness for public education with its wide diversity of peoples, faith, backgrounds etcetera as compared to other more disciplined educational styles.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    I like it

    Give it up, Waffler, public education is poor at best and hardly a bastion of free thought.

    Waffler says ~ "Thank goodness for public education with its wide diversity of peoples",...Wide diversity of peoples eh? Hmmm have you seen how well the wide diversity of peoples is working out in the new ghettos and no go zones in Europe? Or how about all that wonderful Multi-Culturalism and the way it worked out in Yugoslavia? Sorry Mr. Twisted Liberal thinker...but the things you say have no basis in functional reality.

    I am talking about my 1950's/1960's education, Carlton. Two of the nicest men I have ever worked with were Jewish and Egyptian Muslim. I have done computer programming sitting next to a Sikh. Now you and I know of ignorant, ugly and mean people everywhere, so what is your point? You wish to impute the traits of the few the the majority. I choose to see the majority of all shades of persuasion that are good and be wary of the few. I acknowledge that there are problems of tolerance in the world but am not willing to go down your road into the abyss of despair.
