But... but... I like the taste of alcohol.

This fails because until you know a lot, and have been humbled a lot, you tend to think you know everything. You can advance in an evolutionary way, but without instruction you're gonna miss all of the revolutionary advances.

Not everyone thinks up calculus like Issac Newton did. And don't give me BS such as "calculus doesn't matter." In the context of this discussion, we need a hell of a lot of people to know calculus.

We need like 1500 people to know calculus. We certainly don't need to subsidize it.

EDIT - There are nerds who will learn calculus regardless of whether it's taught in schools or not anyway. I.e. Jrmouse.

Hmm. I fear you have a very poor understanding of large swaths of our economy.

Yeah, like all those website designers who made healthcare.gov. They really had their heads on straight.

Fuck that shit.

Unless you keep a kid in a basement with no stimulus he/she will learn shit. And frankly, I question the value of teaching people shit that in probably less than 10 years we're going to have brain implants that update the information to us immediately Matrix style.

I had sexual relations with a teacher once, sir. I am bona fide.

All I can think of is the Ron White joke "The principal is on the intercom... today there are fish sticks for lunch and by the way, BJs don't count."

This is a complete non sequitur regarding what I said. Some might say its orthogonal.*

*jk.

Education helps people do better. These people sucked. That these people sucked does not diminish that education helps people do better.

No, it's directly applicable. You are suggesting communist idiots who can't build a website are somehow capable of educating children. They simply aren't.

Also, so uh....Bruce Jenner is a woman now. Is this why we need feminism?

I missed Brucies "interview" and I'm not up on these things.

Does Brucie whack his Johnson off now?

Or does he just continue with the hormones?

And in this age of cis-gender-neutrality couldn't he just call himself a woman?

Then he could go back to being a man if he wants. And maybe compete in senior Olympics.

These questions call out for Falcon Insight.

I know you're enjoying your rant thing here (and I'm a small government kind of guy), but you've made another argumentative error. Maybe its an intentional lawyer thing to just pretend things like this. But my statement did not address the competence of public school teachers (some of which are good and some of which aren't). It addressed the need for teaching.
