  • Brenda Li

    try to think it from the govs perspective tho, bc if they let that bill pass then many more like that may happen, and then what is the point of a mascot?, and think about how much paperwork and how hard it'll be for the gov. the kids likely shouldn't​ have brought the bill, and the school board should have thought it through (maybe in highschool with a v important bill, perhaps). with a bill the kids should be expected to be treated like adults. the Canadian gov would vote no too if that was the case. Don't just slam the government for that (although they probably should have been much kinder about it); they work their butts off for you guys. haven't you noticed the best way to get older is going into government?
    Politicians are not dicks - actually, they are; many people complaining about them actually can't seem to live without them, and well, figure out the rest.

      Right but the party itself didn't really change too much. Not at first anyway. Only after they realized that they could get the minority vote despite a slew of racist policies that they had passed for decades

    • Cartman C

      Brandon Buchner Год назад +1

      The party has been morphing ever since to try and capture more votes from the disenfranchised. They finally took it too far this election and completely neglected their base. Poor working whites. Cost them the white house.

    • Brandon Buchner
      Brandon Buchner Год назад

      Nope. Check your history bro. 1932 is where minorities began voting democrat in huge numbers despite that party being the party of racism. They were also the party of the poor white worker and promised more benefits and work during the depression. Black people across the country had to decide to abandon their racial principles and identity in favor of the chance of economic stability and have been voting that way every since.

    • Anzac-A1

      Not EVERY election, also, the difference between the US and all other countries, is that the crazy candidate doesn't actually win.
      Second, Hillary, as we now know, only won because the Primary was rigged in her favour, and Trump only won because America is the only nation that uses the electoral college system.
      Point is, you can teach kids about politics in the classroom, like any other subject. After all, you don't take them into space to learn about space, do you. I agree, all young people should learn about how US politics work, especially after the clusterfuck that was 2016. However, there are more effective ways to do so. This instance will likely result in those kids not giving a shit about voting in the future. As such, no visit is better than a potentially bad visit here.

    • LupineShadowOmega
      LupineShadowOmega 4 месяца назад +1

      If the state of the system is irrelevant, then the fact that children can't vote should likewise be so. The competence of children isn't on trial here, that would be the competence of lawmakers instead. And I'm saying that amusing children wasn't the point. It was getting children educated and engaged with the process. Which literally would have been what happened if they'd been doing their jobs instead of trying to grandstand.
      Yeah, yeah. All the time there is someone trying to tell America what its politics look like to the rest of the world, which always seems to come from someone that doesn't know a whole lot about politics in other parts of the world. If this is the silliest thing you've seen in politics then I don't care where you're from, you haven't been paying enough attention. Politicians are just people, and surprise surprise, people can be abject morons. Look up the last elections for the majority of European nations and tell me again how strange and off putting Trump is. He's the same sort of con man you run into every election, they guy that can promise the moon and not even deliver dust from the vacuum. Europe has them. Asia has them. South America, Africa, Australia.
      On top of that, he didn't even win the popular vote and was running against one of the most disliked democratic candidates in recent history and that was after she defeated a rather popular democrat in the primaries. In short, people where pissed off and petty, it gets the better of us all.

    • Anzac-A1
      Anzac-A1 4 месяца назад

      Well, there's a good reason children aren't allowed to vote.
      Also, I'm not saying what the politicians did was right or good. All I'm saying is that at it's heart, politics is about running a country, not amusing children. The actual state of the specific political system in question is irrelevant. It's also things like this story that explain why the rest of the world views American politics as a joke; you guys view politics with such little care that you think having children propose a bill is a sensible idea, and you elected a man like Trump to lead you, despite the fact that I know for a fact that I, a 23 year old would make a better President, because I am actually willing to learn about what the job entails, and also willing to accept advice when it is offered, and ask questions if and when I don';t understand something.

    • LupineShadowOmega

      Anzac-A1 tell it to the guys you see on your screen every time you turn to whatever Cable news outlet. Politicians are a part of and looking for photo opts all the time. Getting noticed by the media allows you to bring public attention to whatever issues you have going on. They aren't cloistered monks and they sure as hell aren't so busy in a day that they couldn't have brushed through things and got on with the day. What they did was obvious grandstanding.
      As for sitting in on a random bill, yeah their teachers sure were assholes for make an empty gesture to get their students involved with and looking into the law making process. Indeed, how dare they try to give their children a stake in what's happening or understanding the processes at work. They should totally have just listened to someone drone on about how good a job they're doing as lawmakers and how they deserve the raises their giving themselves.

    • Anzac-A1
      Anzac-A1 4 месяца назад

      Maybe, but politicians are NOT there for entertainment, they are there to run things. If you wanted to educate children on how bills are proposed, debated and then passed/rejected, you could've just allowed them to sit in during a regular bill hearing.

      +buxxi90 planned parenthood is a group made originally to deal with things such as unwanted pregnancy and stds. They help people understand how to use protection and birth control pills.
      And they do do some abortions but also a lot of non abortion health services for women like mammograms for those who are poor.

      ITs become a issue in american politics because it recieves government funding and provides abortions. So some lawmakers want to defund it since they argue that it is using tax payer money to "kill babies". However none of the government money is used (or even legally allowed to be used) for abortion services. So taking all that money away will only impact the other health services they provide to poor people.

    • Master Markus
      Master Markus Год назад +6

      I'm also an outsider, so I don't have _all_ the information, but to my knowledge they _do_ provide abortion services (which the far right tends to get up in arms about) but they also provide some more general health services to women or concerning sexual health and/or pregnancy.

Some guy - not an American dentist - just killed him. For the heck of it. Because, why not? But this species is all but gone, and - because it is in the Philippines - it gets no help, assistance, media, or respect. THIS raptor is literally bigger than you - and There are fewer than 250 of these magnificent raptors left.

      It's one bill that really, really doesn't matter. If you're going to shoot it down, don't invite the children in the first place. This was a bunch of bureaucrats with too many skeletons in their closets to even run for national office making children cry and pushing unrelated agendas. These guys are dicks.

      +Jeffrey Pierce If it's a public school, those students are likely already familiar with the practice of sprinkling obscenities into one's speech. It's a timeless playground rite of passage, if I recall my school days correctly.

    Planned Parenthood was founded by Eugenics like Margaret Sanger who created American Birth Control League that due to its horrifying policy's had to change name to sound friendly into planned parenthood.

      burazfly I know this comment is two years old, but... what? People who don't want kids support eugenics, etc?? Since when? What paranoid conspiracy theories have you been subscribing to?

      It's not eugenics; no one's being forced to have an abortion.

      Eugenics-is the belief and practice which aims at improving the genetic quality of the human population.
      You do understand that was Hitler goal as well Darwin father who studied genes of genius to eradicate weak class people such as gipsy, jews, blacks and white people who were average working people. And yes most people who don't want to have children support eugenics they hate humanity itself and think of themselves as different human beings almost like aliens or they feel like it on this planet.
      Eugenics is not dead it is starting to get more and more power. What do you think abortion is? Something revolutionary? It is plan to eradicate poor class same as artificial fertilization to create obedient class all by Huxley novel Brave New World.

      +burazfly I'm probably going to regret getting involved, but you are aware that Margaret Sanger is dead? Her ideas on Eugenics were actually rather popular at the time she founded the organization.I never intend to get pregnant, but I'm thankful for Planned Parenthood and birth control. I take it for medical reasons and it's saved me from a lot of excruciating pain.

      What shady history, shady history is for people who don't read history they call it shady. Planned Parenthood is well known for eugenics for anybody that makes any research out of curiosity.
      Soda pop Fanta and Nazis invention don't have anything to do with eugenics but interestingly you have mentioned Nazis because they have something with Planed Parenthood or Birth control league. They acutely took American eugenics textbooks as advise how to create super-humans that is were originally idea come from, families like Huxley wrote book that I personally have Brave New World (1932). How to create Utopia of 5 classes of people who will be incapable to create any rebellions against scientific dictatorship ruling above them that manipulate genes before birth and growing people inside glass containers . Quite a horrible master piece even for today i advise anybody who can to read it.

    and to think ... politicians are always using children as a crutch ... "think of the children" "stop bullying" ... etc and they all just basically said ..." FUCK YOU KIDDIES!!! fuck you until you are old enough to join the army and vote ... then fuck you anyway" i mean .. they could have worded it in a way that was complex and using big words that would go over their heads

    When the guy went off on planned parenthood I basically wanted to know what the fuck was going on? Why the hell did they act like this in front of children? It's not going to hurt anyone! Just let them have their state raptor! The hell crawled up their butts and decided to make them assholes for the day? Christ.

      +ocadioan Well that's a pretty shitty lesson. Basically they made these kids not want to participate in government. The lesson is, you will be treated like shit for wanting to do something by people who are jackasses. How the hell does this inspire children to want take part in their country if the lesson is "Your actions are pointless!" Seriously, American politics just seem full of more and more asshats by the day. No wonder they can't get anything done.

      +FNGLHR I don't know. It seems like it was a better learning opportunity for the kids of how the government really works.
      They are going to take your legislation(regardless of importance), and bash it and hijack it to spread their own hateful agenda until you wish you had never proposed it in the first place.
