No, only in Chicano Studies classes.

Actually, that particular subject would more likely be addressed in Native American Studies.

I completely agree.

When the economy is bad, more minorities will suffer an economic downturn so more of them should need social services. This graph shows that minorities are doing better at not receiving services than the economy would predict.
What?! Let me see if I understand this correctly:

1) If you can't pay for childbirth, have taxpayers foot the bill; or,
2) If you don't want your child, have taxpayers foot the bill
3) But not a single mention of the individual living a personally responsible life, to include not getting pregnant in the first place if he/she can't afford the child?

Do any of you have any idea what it actually means to embrace personal responsibility? Your rote responses don't give me the impression that you even know what it is....much less embrace it!

Are we really in such piiss poor shape as a nation?

Wrong. Taking responsibility for your children doesn't mean you should kill them. In this age of many many forms of birth control, and the availability of sterilization, you don't have to have children you cannot afford but would only abort if you had to pay a dime toward their support.

Unfortunately yes.

As absurd as it may sound, they are actually teaching that the Aztecs once ruled over all of North America. And because of that, 100% of the people of Mexico should simply ignore any law that gets in their way and come on over.

It doesn't matter if you don't like it, if it's broke it's broke. It doesn't matter if you personally don't do it or are responsible with your life.
We need NHS so the reality is cheaper.
Yes, you will pay for it anyway. No, people won't stop having sex, it doesn't matter if they are poor, ill or from Africa spreading AIDS. Yes, we will pay somehow, we usually do. No, we don't have a good public health care system to cut cost and make it more affordable to pay for the poor people humping.Yes, we pay higher prices in our taxes because of this. No, it won't get better, with recession it will just continue to decline. Again, Yes, we need NHS. People like you can get a supplement to make yourselves feel better and still pay more like you do now. No, it won't make you healthier or live longer to pay more, just feel better along the way.

Any other questions?
