Flawed index fails to account for differences in bone and muscle density among races, perhaps because the subject is "taboo" as we are not allowed to talk about this because all races are equal in every way and it's only waacists who would say otherwise.

Yea you know what, my tax dollar says school is for learning, not a physical appraisal from anyone other than the parents. More Math English and TRUE American history, less indoctrination into dependence on the socialist state to address all your "needs", and I don't need 'em to feed my kid either, or tell them how to put a condom on a cucumber, or tell them marrying someone of the same sex is a healthy viable "choice" for them or society, or that they can use whatever bathroom they want depending on what sex they feel they are when they wake up that day.

Or teach them about ancient religion. They are doing that in the middle schools.
novato 3per January 17, 2014 at 10:38 AM
Right, anything other than Christianity or the accomplishments of Europeans is A-ok!
Julia Angel January 17, 2014 at 10:52 AM
Uh no, Novato 3per, no religion should be taught in public school. That is the law.
novato 3per January 17, 2014 at 12:48 PM
are you the same person that just made these 2 comments? "teach them about ancient religion" and "no religion should be taught in public school" ? You're going to have to have a little conference with yourself on that, however, I believe it is perfectly legal and common practice to teach ABOUT religious beliefs, however in public schools teachers are tasked with not presenting any religion as superior than another. And be careful not to let whether or not something has become a "law" as your test of whether or not it is the right thing to do. There is a tendency among non-religious people open to control and dictatorship to become reverent toward an abundance of man made laws in the absence of any faith-based or personal code of morality. These are the folks you will constantly see calling for new laws everywhere in an attempt to micromanage every part of your life.

Well, it is not OK in my opinion Novato 3per. Separation of church and state stopped that. Religious beliefs should not be taught in the public school setting.

I guess we won't see you two whack jobs sharing a hot tub soon, but you both actually agree(although you'll never admit it). Religion is the opiate of the masses, and just as Julia has found a sunny spot (her cat could have told her that), most of the other people find religion. There have been more people killed in the name of God than for all other reasons combined, so I'm against teaching such a violent thing in school. Better to just find a sunny spot.
Julia Angel January 18, 2014 at 11:02 AM
Allright "Mr. Whack Job" namer, It is a law that our country was based upon-(separation of church and state),. But I appreciate your view of this too. Public schools have taken over way too much of the family role. That just needs to change again, and I feel it is happening..
novato 3per January 18, 2014 at 11:32 AM
Again, schools may teach ABOUT religion, without endorsing one, its all about how it's presented. Julia actually said something I agree with " Public schools have taken over way too much of the family role ".
Julia Angel January 18, 2014 at 12:01 PM
Again, NOVATO 3PER, I know that is what CALIFORNIA says but again, that is not CONSTITUTIONAL...
Bubba six pack January 18, 2014 at 02:57 PM
Get a room, you two. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, how come we outlawed the stuffing of ducks to the point of morbid obesity while it's still OK to do that to our kids? Add to that the suggested ritual of weighing the little porkers in front of their classmates and you'll have the perfect recipe for the next school shootings. Since religion is the excuse for the majority of killings on this planet, teaching about (not for or against) the various religions can help us understand how to avoid offending others (and getting shot for it). Knowing which direction the next bullets are coming from will help me stand on the other side of you two lovebirds.

P.S. @ Julia-I loved your blog on the sunny spot. It helps me calm down after "locknload"3per's rants, but be careful. There's a sunspot flare up this week in the news. Pull your tin foil hat down over your eyes when basking.

3per, is it true that you are adopting Julia's cat?
Julia Angel January 20, 2014 at 11:36 AM
Really this whole thing is again, boring.. Public education here in California is a joke and that is the truth. Hopkin , what are you talking about? I guess there is a lot of boredom in Novato.
Julia Angel January 23, 2014 at 02:50 PM
Bubba, the sun is my friend really. I do not shield myself from it. The sun is very magnetic too and I guess that is why I can bask in it as much as I want to....
Bubba six pack January 23, 2014 at 07:38 PM
Julia, you're an oncologist's dream. See you at the "Paint the Budget Red" party.
Julia Angel January 23, 2014 at 08:05 PM
Actually I am their (medical doctors) worst nightmare, they just do not realize it yet. And I am not going to that boring event. But I do appreciate your humor. You should be careful about the events you attend these days. The negative energy at those affairs will attach to your energy field and it will last an entire year or more... remember I said that.
Hopkin January 24, 2014 at 04:15 AM
Julia, do you know if Obamacare will cover energy field purging?
Julia Angel January 24, 2014 at 09:27 AM
Hopkin, I see Obamacare not really covering much of anything in the future. It is going to be another big joke. But really, energy field purging is something that people can do them selves. You just have to get connected to our geomagnetic field and then it happens naturally.
