    First off, I absolutely despise political correctness in all forms. That being said, at 57 years old, I remember passing out Valentine cards to *all* my classmates back in the day. When my three boys were in elementary school (they are now 30, 28, and 23), they also gave all of their classmates cards. I don’t recall if it was *required* as much as just expected. You didn’t leave people out, anymore than when you brought cupcakes for your birthday, everyone got one (not that cupcakes would permitted in many schools now).

    I would support her plan as soon as she proposes one that bans other “unnecessary personal pleasures” such as adult beverages, sports cars that will easily double the highest legal speed limits, most motorcycles, snowmobiles, all terrain vehicles, junk food….ya get the picture. Any one of these kill a lot more people than so called “assault weapons.”

    No wonder she hasn’t sold the truck yet. A 20 year old Ford Ranger for 3500 bucks? It wasn’t worth much more than than when it was new!

    Yes, isn’t it amazing what can occur with random chance via evolution. (sarcasm intended)

    I think that so much of it has to do with the area of study selected. My son majored in Electronics Engineering. He started a paid internship 2 days after he graduated and was hired as a salaried engineer starting at $52K per year after three months. Six months after that he got a 15% raise. My other son is 1 1/2 years from graduating with a degree in Computer Science with a Computer Engineering minor and he is already working part-time at $15 per hour. The company can hardly wait until he graduates and is available full-time. The jobs are there, kids just have to go into marketable degree programs.
