There is a distinct lack of any news or news article in your OP.Well then, are all news related topics going to be from now on classified as philosophy...?
... or wait maybe everything is philosophy?
The fact that my posts pushed your buttons... implies you're ideologically a leftist; they can't resist adding their dumb opinions to the mix; even when by your own admission its an uninformed one; with a self admitted inability to establish correlation; but that's most likely as a result of the former impediment.No, you never forced me to engage, but reading your posts is kind of like slowing down to look at a car crash so it’s hard not to respond.
So yeah, I felt it necessary to say that we have a completely different scenario and political landscape in South Africa and you calling me a leftist and a Democrat supporter when I have no idea or desire to know exactly what a Democrat is, is kind of stupid? I don’t give a flying fuck about the yanks, they all seem to be as stupid as you in thinking the US is the world. I do miss Trump though, that was a good laugh watching him in action. And of course it was seriously funny when South Africans started crying when he was ousted like it actually mattered. You seem to be one of these people so it’s good to have you around to keep the laughs going.

If you think SA is any better off... then maybe the idiot you're were looking for... could be found reflected in your nearest mirror.What opinion have I ever given about the USA other than laughing at their higher than average quota of idiots? When you are rattling on about left and right everywhere, the political situation in the USA is the furthest thing from my mind. Why on earth would it be? No dude, I've got plenty of opinions and some might even surprise you. But unlike yours of course, mine are based on real life experiences.
Relevancy for SA (for the morons that apparently missed the correlation):
The reality is that lefties the world over tend to repeat the same stupid ideas over and over again... because according to them...
...doing the same thing over and over again... will magically produce different outcomes... ...and government is the answer to everything...
In SA, not only have we entertained to a more limited degree the notion that everything is somehow racist including mathematics (on a similar premise as CRT), but we also have strong teacher unions that are protected by the ANC...
...with similar crap outcomes for scholars i.e. they're locked into failing public schools with no parental option to move them our of those crap schools to better ones.
In SA the situation is IMO far worse... the corrupt government has no financial means to level the playing field with school choice on par with the rich; hence kids are stuck in these crap schools with crap teachers where e.g. in one case a maths teacher hardly ever shows up, but is still employed and receiving a salary -- this was prior to COVID -- today it's much worse.
I've met a few kids during the COVID period that can't do simple arithmetic like addition and subtraction... yet they've been passed along all the way to e.g. grade 8 with glowing reports of their maths prowess including the fake scores to match. How is this not setting these kids up to be the next generation of victims, no different to the Democrats and their support of similarly crap schools and crap teachers.
Is this a serious question?Does everything leftists disagree with smell like philosophy?
-- does reality smell like philosophy?
I'm trying to be generous and agree with some of what you said... so here goes:Relevant? Dude this is the failure of a government to deliver promises to the people who voted it in. If South Africa had made it a priority and invested heavily in state funded education for all in 1994 then we wouldn't be in the mess we are in now. How the fuck can you draw parallels with the USA when it is a completely different situation we are faced with here and is not down to politics but corruption and the failure of the ANC to lift the country in all areas as promised?
Comme ci comme ça, la même merde avec un placage différent.Is this a serious question?
Do you prefer the mybb approach of mods, infractions, bans, post deletions and thread locking. I don't.
So if I move a thread there is no need to be upset. It is still available but it fits the site structure better imo.
Whew... maybe you need to review who has tried to pass this legislation vs. who has always opposed it.
It quite clearly is a Republican vs. Democrat issue.
Democrats care more about keeping teacher's unions happy, hence they will not permit any legislation that would strip crap teachers of their jobs -- it's a win / win for democrats if blacks fail to succeed in bad public schools, and by supporting the teacher's unions, they for example: get access to government money funnelled from government to unions, who then donate to Democrats, etc.
School vouchers in the US is generally a State issue. While "purple" or "red" states are more likely to have policies for parental choice the main state proponents of legislation to implement voucher programmes tend to be Democrat because while the GOP loves to bitch about the teacher unions love the ability to bitch even more than actually doing anything.Ohio for one does.
To be fair only 18 states have voucher programs so really this is not a democrat vs republican issue, Like you trying to paint it.
[)roi(] has left the building. He pm'ed me last night to say he can't take the "leftists" anymore and he's leaving and that I can delete his account. Told him to hang around but he declined. I then tried to solicit a donation but didn't get a reply.
Think I'll follow the FB approach of account deletion and give him a few weeks to log in again.
