Comment Time to Stop with Political Correctness (Score 4, Funny) 243

Okay, folks, it is time to get rid of the political correctness and call a spade a spade.

There is one group of Americans who cause the vast majority of violent crimes in the United States. They commit a disproportionately large amount of homicides and make up a vastly disproportionate amount of the people in prisons across the country.

They are responsible for being a majority of drug offenders. They cause most fights in schools and make up the vast, vast majority of high school drop outs.

They are also responsible for a vastly disproportionate amount of DUIs.

But political correctness will not allow us to talk about this problem. If we simply locked up this part of society, we'd all be better off.

And I think we all know what group this is.


Males. Lock 'em all up and throw away the key.

I decided to log in for this one.

OP asked a question. You obviously do not know the answer because you just made a stupid, insulting reply. Perhaps if you don't know the answer, don't reply. I don't know the answer either, but would be interested in knowing the answer as well and would have asked the question had the AC not already asked. But instead of an answer you just shit all over it and are apparently offended that it got asked. Get over yourself and realize that some people aren't afraid to ask questions when they are ignorant... you might want to try it.

why don't we reserved all the residential usage and some quota for criticalinfrastructure. Agriculture and mining users can bid to use the surface and underground water - after general public has their fair share of water usage.

Free market at its best. Let them pay for the water they reap profit from.

Sorry, your argument still does not convince me that learning foreign is not a good thing. Learning languages are suppose to be difficult and the two years in HS only get someone an intro more than anything else. But honestly, with very little curriculum we are now providing students to learn what else can provide an positive learning experience besides keeping foreign language. It is not like students today will be picking up more rigorous science classes in-liu of the foreign language requirements.

If we drop two years of foreign language I expect ALL students to complete physics, biology, chemistry, and one advanced science course, plus a requirement to complete Calculus before graduating HS.

Sounds impossible or unrealistic? Yeah I think so too. Better keep the foreign language requirement then.

If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.
