    I would like to see a study regarding the unrealistic expectations of women today paired with the deck being stacked against men in court when it comes to divorce, children, etc and how that is affecting men when it comes to marriage. I suspect that is having a lot bigger impact on marriage than porn is.

    I won’t be coming back for a few years so I have not looked into it much yet. I am currently licensed in Indiana though that can be transferred fairly easily to most states. It’s something my wife and I will talk about more the closer we get to returning.

    I currently teach in South Korea but it is going to be comical being in the public school system when I come back to the States. Liberals will just love me. History teacher, conservative, Christian, and a veteran.

    If kids in the U.S. think their lives are too tough, send them over here to S. Korea for a bit. Then they will understand what a “tough life” means. The kids I teach go to school six days a week, all day. The older kids do not get out of school until 9:30pm (some later if going to an illegal school) Then they go home to study and do homework until bedtime around 12am. They wake up and do it all again the next day. This is their childhood but you know what? There aren’t mass killings here by students. There aren’t gangs of students roaming the streets. There are rarely fights in school. Students are also much more respectful to teachers here. (If the teacher has a clue that is) I have not seen a single teenage pregnancy nor heard of one in my time here. I am sure it happens but is very rare. The extent of misbehavior in class is usually a student falling asleep, which is understandable when you realize it is because they were up all night studying, not partying and playing video games.

    When I come back to the States to teach it is going to be very difficult to accept the excuses parents make for their children’s poor behavior.

    I find the angry comments to a story like this hilarious. Some of you seriously need to get out and enjoy life a bit. These students are having fun. Something more of you should try. I don’t care what your political affiliation is.

    When do you start holding parents accountable for their children’s discipline problems and unwillingness to try in school? Teachers are with these kids for a very small amount of time compared to what parents are. For example, if you are a high school teacher, you may only see a student for one class all day. So in say a 40 to 50 minute class period per day what impact is a teacher supposed to really have on that student?Who is really at fault here? The parent who spends hours per day under the same roof with the child, or the teacher who spends 50 minutes with them a day?

    I am not saying there aren’t bad teachers/school systems out there, the recent Atlanta cheating scandal is proof there are. Yet if you want your child to be well educated that starts at home. Amazingly I see very few comments mentioning the fact that parents do not raise their children anymore. They expect someone else to do so at daycare, at school, at church, at boy scouts, or by the TV. Parents need to stop blaming everyone else for their kids shortcomings and start looking in the mirror. Raise your kids to be respectful, hardworking, to make no excuses and to value learning. The results will show in school no matter how bad some of their teachers may be.

    @JackSureShot

    I agree with you. There is no way that kid is a hero. If the teacher had been using a traditional style of teaching the guy would have done the same thing. He would have simply said “You can’t just stand up there and lecture…” and away he would have went. What he was doing is making excuses, nothing more.

    I have a feeling there is a parent behind this kid who let him do whatever he wanted, never checked the kids homework to make sure it was done, and generally expected the school system to raise their kid.

    Heh, so this kid is upset because a teacher is not using the traditional style of “lecture at students” that has failed for well over 40 years now?

    The most remarkable thing to me is that no one offered any help to the guy. At the very least I would have taken a look at the guys laptop to see if there was anything I could do.

    Wow so liberals are even trying to redistribute points now…

    I do not see any of these photo’s on mainstream media sites. All I see there is the aftermath of the Israeli strikes. It would be nice if the media did their job for a change rather than try to pick winners and losers.

    So atheists are always lamenting that Christians try to spread their faith, yet the atheists do the same thing with their faith.

    So if Obama’s re-election means that people want higher taxes, what does the GOP increasing their numbers in the House mean? Democrat logic is always flawed.

    We as conservatives need to stop equating Conservatism with Nativism.

    The biggest argument I hear for being against amnesty is “well these people broke laws.” Okay, you are correct, they did. I am going to go ahead and guess that many of you have broken laws too. Speeding would be the glaring example. Should we strip away your driver’s license? Not many of you would be for that I am sure. So a better explanation is going to be needed if you want to exclude a race of people from the conservative platform due to law breaking.

    The next argument of course will be to point out the violent offenses of Illegal immigrants. Again you are right, those are terrible things. However, for every violent offender you show me who is Hispanic and illegal I could give you a white violent offender that is a citizen. So why are we focusing on this? The fact of the matter is all people of all races commit horrible crimes.

    Another argument that is constantly used is that “well if we allow amnesty the few jobs that remain will be taken by this new group of people.” There are different variations of this argument but what it comes down to is less jobs for current American citizens. What is never factored in is the number of jobs that could be created by this new citizenry if they were given legal status and were embraced by conservatives rather than lead down a path of welfare by democrats.

    Stop handing Hispanics to the liberal welfare state. Embrace them and teach them Conserva

    2016 will be an interesting Republican primary since it will determine the next president. The only positive thing about Obama being re-elected is that it will give him enough time to leave no doubt that liberal policies do not work.

    Could Glenn Beck have been more wrong about this election? A lot of conservative commentators took huge credibility hits after this debacle. I feel like I’ve been lied to for the past 4 years, and for once not by Obama.

    You are correct, this country may start making curtains again since there will be such amazing job growth.

    I voted this morning as soon as the polling place opened in my Ohio town. There was already a line at 6:30am. I talked to a handful of people in the line and they all were voting for Romney.

    Okay I’m going to stop now. The amount of stupid being posted by many here is overwhelming. At no point did I say anyone should pay for my loans. Many here clearly have reading comprehension issues and have completely changed the subject.

    I said the politician was wrong and she is. I know it will shock many of you but republicans can be wrong too.

    @SLR4528

    Ya, I do not get why so many are attacking me for this idea. They think i’m a liberal becuase I say education costs are out of control. Hell, Rush Limbaugh just said the same thing yesterday. Somehow I am a horrible person though for saying what is true.
