House to back anti-bullying grants - The Hill's Floor Action

Great.....more waste of our tax payer dollars, especially in a time where we shouldnt start any new spending.
Of course, I guess they almost had to do it, though they shouldve stood their ground. If they didnt, the media and liberals wouldve made it some stupid political issue like "Republicans LOVE bullies!"

We've had bullying since the dawn of time im sure. Yet now we have to get the FED involved and tax payer money??

And that wouldve been another attack by liberals/media.

We dont need more spending on social nonsense. It isnt going to ever end and what exactly does throwing money at bullying do? It wont do a damn thing but spend more money that we dont have.

Many people were and many survived just fine. Getting bullied sucks, of course. You gotta learn to take it, and become stronger because of it. Toughen up no matter how much it sucks.

To throw federal money at it in a time we dont have the money is just idiotic.

After reading the RW posts on theis board I believe most ot the Konservatives on here are heartless bullies that enjoy damaging less agressive people and get very upset when some argue back. I believe the bullying is used to cover the deep seated fear that they would be uncompetitive in a truly egalitarian society.

Social issues ALWAYS take the front stage. Much easier to deal with.

I'm going to have a different take on the who-was-bullied issue. I think, well at least back in my day, that it was the conservatives in school who were the recipients of bullying. When I think back on that time, the more conservative kids were the lamest poor saps in school and they flaunted their morality, religiosity, money, and lame fashion choices that mostly opened them up to ridicule. Moreover, it was the little conservative pukes who controlled student government as if that meant something other than staying after school once a week to attend to all the important business of being figurehead student-body "representatives," and I'm sure they used that time wisely to learn more effective ways of sucking up to the school administration and teachers.

Yet when they were alone, these conservative students generally got beat up. But the tides have turned now and those kids that always ran for whatever b.s. student government position now run for more important positions, like assemblymen/councilmen, legislator, congressmen, senator, el presidente. Today they've turned around and now bully us--the masses--with their hackneyed moral positions belied only by conservative ethos that laud low regulation, unfettered business practice, and market expansion overseas.

At least that's the way I see it.
