See Wayne you are mean

Nope, not mean. Honest. My opinion of you is based upon the many crass, angry, ignorant, tasteless, inconsiderate, ruthless and belligerent things you've posted here. So, if honest = mean, then I guess I am mean. After all, there is that old saying, "The truth hurts." (I know this will bring out ol' Pee Wee Herman, so I'll say it for you, "I know you are, but what am I?")

"I wasn't referring to the writer's "jist" of the letter, rather the nasty commentary from the posters with respect to home schooling""

OK, but that isn't what you said. You said:

"Those who understand the jest of this LTR, know what the real argument is about, home schooling."

Notice how you didn't say the gist of the comments.

"The last I checked, it was: Agree - 7; Disagree - 3. This is 70%."

All I can say to that is wow. Did you think Romney was going to win last year because of online polls too?

radioactive,

Thanks for pointing that out to me. The online ABC checker however, doesn't list your "jist."

Hayes,

I wasn't referring to the writer's "jist" of the letter, rather the nasty commentary from the posters with respect to home schooling" that anyone who reads these posts, will concur.

You misrepresent your self Wayne and you have no problem judging me without you ever meeting me.

Nope, never was one to try to guild the lily. I am what I am what I am what I am, nothing more, nothing less. Have you a guilty conscience? I didn't judge you. I made the observation that you're mean, and also not nearly as smart as that for which you credit yourself. It's amazing what you can observe just by watching!

"Those who understand the jest of this LTR, know what the real argument is about, home schooling."

I just went back and reread the letter and I can easily say you are wrong. The letter is ONLY about someone unhappy that their grandkids could not participate in graduation ceremonies at MHS.

You seem to read a lot of fantasy into almost everything you see. Why is that?

How twisted is some people, schools do not raise children they educate them. If you can not sdistinguish the difference you have no business having children.

"From what I'VE seen/read, it's primarily whacked-out/"faith"-based/fundamentalist Jesus-freaks who are resorting to homeschooling...you know...to maintain their child's "purity", as long as the parents can manage. It always seemed abusive, to me, raising a child in such a segregated-"environment"."--MrShaman

To put words in your mouth....."give me another beer; pass the joint, I need another hit; where's my c o n d o m, aw I don't need it now since I can get a morning after pill over the counter for the girl; who needs girls when the boy down the street is around; got any mushrooms; need some money, I know a place that I can steal and sell a smartphone to; let's send some private pictures to some girls I know, etc......."

The world according to Shaman.

Secular humanist hate home schooling because they don't get to educate (propagandize) those students to embrace the religion that believes in no God.

"As far as educating kids, this is a huge country with a LOT of people, and I can imagine VERY few circumstances when one or two parents that may or may not have any post secondary education of any kind, are better equipped and trained to educate children, than dozens of highly trained school teachers."

OK, then it's in the best interests of the children to be removed IMMEDIATELY after birth, especially in instances where the parents had no children prior and no post secondary "education", and placed in the hands of "highly trained" professionals. BS. A child's first, and best, teachers are the child's PARENTS. Who taught you to tie your shoes, blow your nose, count to ten, alphabet, etc.?

Definition of DISCRIMINATE

transitive verb

1a : to mark or perceive the distinguishing or peculiar features of

b : distinguish, differentiate <discriminate hundreds of colors>

2: to distinguish by discerning or exposing differences; especially : to distinguish from another like object

intransitive verb

1a : to make a distinction <discriminate among historical sources>

b : to use good judgment

2: to make a difference in treatment or favor on a basis other than individual merit <discriminate in favor of your friends> <discriminate against a certain nationality>

As can be seen, the single bad connotation of 'discriminate' is as an intransitive verb, definition number 2. I deserved a good grade on the assignment, not a zero. I did a good piece of thinking and research, presented a clear explanation of my point, and deserved better than I got.

"I would say that schools don't "raise" kids, they educate them."

In far too many cases, the public schools do NOT 'educate' the children, they offer a leftist indoctrination, lessons in how hard they must stretch to achieve mediocrity and how to use the worthless PC jargon the leftists use. I offer my experience in 7th grade English. Teacher asked us to write a couple paragraphs about why discrimination is always wrong. I copied the definition from a dictionary and explained that clearly it wasn't ALWAYS wrong to discriminate. She put a big red checkmark at the top of my paper and I got a zero for the assignment. I guess she didn't like what the dictionary said. Definitions of DISCRIMINATE, according to the online Merriam-Webster Dictionary, are in my next post.
