    Hey, Dvorak, I LOVE you man…Happy Birthday!

    I can’t afford to produce your show…but, you can have my kids…home school them well, please…

  3. Baseskizl says:

    Um, why the hell do I have to pay for your bad decisions? If you choose to make a child it should be your responsibility not mine. My property taxes are all ready high enough thanks to your little crumb crunchers, who don’t do dick in school but give teachers PTSD and then we wonder why these shity teachers always want a raise.Why we can’t have more kids like the ones in India or china.

      In the long run, society pays the price for your bad parenting.

      • dusanmal says:

        No. All those “secondary effects” on the society from INDIVIDUAL decisions that Left likes so much to imagine (so that they can craft rules and control) are plain and total BS in a culture/society based truly on USA Constitutional principles. Now, if society decides to be a Nanny State,than there is indeed a feedback but only and only because of decision to meddle in people’s lives at the state cost. No state meddling and no state control – no net effect. Just positive/negative feedback to the very person who made decision and their immediate family.

      My brother in Austin, TX called to complain about his property taxes. $1,900 on his 1,600 sq/ft house. I live in upstate NY. I said my property taxes were $1,400 on an 1,100 sq ft house, so that did not seem out of line. But what really kills me are the school taxes of $3,500.

      Long silence….

      My brother said “My property taxes include school taxes.”

      “You bastard!”

      Every year the non-property owners vote to increase the school budget over the State cap. Single parents in rental properties vote it up. Rental property is assessed much lower than residential (got to support Business!) so I get hammered every year.

      • deowll says:

        One of the reasons I wish the fed gov was out of education is that the more layers of government you have, in most cases, the less the people at the top making the calls knows about how to do the jobs they are telling other people how do in great detail when they simply don’t have a clue and in many cases simply don’t care. Whatever goes wrong it’s going to be somebody elses fault and they were simply following directions anyway.

        Knock it back to the states and give the parents vouchers and get the bleep out of the way. The states that succeed will act as role models the failing states will try to emulate because their voters will insist on it sooner or later. The public schools will try to do their best because they will be in competition with the private sector.

  7. whipjacka says:

    I think the overall notion is (although she didn’t get it across well) that ‘it takes a village’. We can argue whether the solution is more money or a change in attitude or people making better decisions, but the theme, that the community is a hugely influential force, isn’t a bad one.

    • pedro says:

      I’m pretty sure that’s what happened to fidel castro when he tried to explain the same thing. He’s such a misunderstood character

      • whipjacka says:

        Yeah, comparing somebody advocating for people to be invested, in some form, in their community and a socialist dictator is apt.

        Continue using hyperbole to prove your points and find out how many problems you solve.

        • pedro says:

            your growing self-loathing and self-contempt. It’s causing you to wildly lash out at anyone.

      You are absolutely right with a reasoned reading.

      The REPUKs are again trying to manufacture indignation to whip up their sorry masses.

      It’s more of the GWB REPUK brainwash meme “you’re either with us, or against us” they can’t break from.

      So heaven forbid, anyone should unintentionally challenge their self-designed “religion”.

    • Mr Diesel says:

  8. bobbo, we think with words, and flower with ideas says:

    I think what she said carefully parsed is that the kiddies are not “exclusively” the responsibility of parents to raise. Society has an interest and roll as well–an unavoidable one that we in society suffer the results of whatever we are doing or not doing.

    No one can deny that–with supporting argument. Hmmm—let me rephrase to avoid the Puke Dogma:

    No one can effectively argue against that.

    Ha, ha. Thats more better. I love it when everyone is forced to read my advise. All you all should imply my council.

    Like so many issues covered at DU==the issue is orphaned when one side or the other claims its all one thing. Legitimately==the issue is finding where the line is between the competing interests. In its most arduous form, this is called “thinking.”

    Yea, verily.

  9. Uncle Patso says:

    Oooh! She says All Our Kids Are Belong To THE STATE!!!

    There’s a big difference between “THE STATE” and “community.”

    I grew up in a small town. If some kid was seen doing something wrong, chances were the person witnessing it knew the kid, knew his/her parents and would not only call the kid by name and reprimand him/her, but would make sure the parents heard about it. It was definitely hard to get away with mischief.

    When she says “community,” that’s what I think that’s the kind of thing she’s referring to, rather than the monolithic “THE STATE.”

    • pedro says:

      You are referring to a notion that she says has never existed before in the US because you think your kid is yours and you’re wrong

    • RIF says:

      Yes, but aren’t we all just part of the collective, the “World Community”. Hmmm?

  10. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    That’s why we need the 2nd Amendment, so when she shows up with a government official, we can defend our children.

    • noname says:

      Nancy Lanza’s mistake was not unintentionally enabling her son Adam gun access, but not intentionally giving fully loaded automatic guns to every child in her class.

      Imagine how many lives the children of Newton could have saved if every lunch box had a gun!

      Pakistan and Afghanistan gives guns to all their children and how many school shootings did they have in the last 10 years, ZERO!

      Now that is a model of 2nd Amendment in action!

      • Silverthorn says:

        While we’re at it, let’s make sure that we ban all swimming pools — they are responsible for more child deaths than guns! And car wrecks kill millions of children too — let’s go back to the horse and buggy.

        It’s sickening that a madman killed children. It’s terrifying to me as a parent to think that something like that could happen at my son’s school. But surrender a right that our country was founded on because of a handful of over-hyped incidents? Not on your life.

  11. Pocono Charlie says:

    Melissa Harris-Perry’s idea is the extension of Hillary Clinton’s ‘It Takes a Village’, and I for one think MHP is the prime candidate for idiot.

  12. Dallas says:

    All I’m say’n is I’m tired being taxed $8K/year to train and corral dumb ass sheeple spawn as their ‘parents’ brainwash them to be bigoted little fuckers years later.

    This communist method of collective raising of baby sheeple needs to stop. Want to spawn? Pay up!

    • pedro says:

      If only you knew you’re the best example as to why people shouldn’t be taxed to pay for subpar public ed, sheeple!

    • Mr Diesel says:

      That’s almost what we pay a year for two houses and 18 acres and I am also tired as paying to raise little banger wannabes. I go to get fuel yesterday and I can’t stand a dumbass walking around with his pants around his knees.

      Hot chick maybe, dumbass wannabe, no.

  13. bobbo, we think with words, and flower with ideas says:

    “This communist method of collective raising of baby sheeple needs to stop. Want to spawn? Pay up!” /// I agree that seems the more fair, the more rational. But the fact that parents get a reduction in taxes while non-spawners are called upon to pay taxes one way or another for schools is the fact that “we all” are raising the blessed little kiddies.

    One way is as you say: what the school curriculum is. Through representational democracy and the occasional lawsuit, we are all involved in that.

    What “real” differences does it make to a generation where one plays dodge ball and is given grades while another is purely motivational marking areas of needing help and dodge ball is replaced with…cross country map reading?

    Kiddies–the stoopid hoomans of the future.

  15. Jake says:

    Having grown up in the public school system and recently graduating high school. I can say from personal experience that the notion of the responsibility of raising our “kiddies” should not be exclusively left to the government. It should be left for the individual to decide how he/she raises their offspring in my opinion.

    I always thought being home-schooled was a pretty sweet deal. Public education is whatever you make of it but in my experience it was not all that fun or worthwhile. Other’s opinion may differ.

    Also, whenever the kid “comes of age” it is ultimately up to them how they decide which dogma to follow.

  16. Hmeyers says:

    I believe the actual correct interpreted meaning is that if you are stupid you are accountable to someone who is looking after the rights of your children as human being who deserve to have maximum potential in this world.

    I see no problem with this.

    You are exempt from this if you are taking proper care of your children, but no you will not be the judge of that.

    Quite fair. Children are important and deserve parents that are looking out for their best interests.

    But “the State” will never be a substitute for caring parents.

  17. The Monster's Lawyer says:

    WTF? The lady was emphasizing the need for community when raising kids. She didn’t say that the kid’s were the sole responsibility of the community only that the community shares in the upbringing of everyone in it. Now if you are some doomsday-everyone-for-himselfer, then i can see taking exception to what she says. If so, go hide in a cave and let civilization commence without you.

  18. Irving of Berlin says:

    The monster’s lawyer has it right. Just this woman is too “eddicated and uppity” for some folks to deal with.

    No surprise there, either.

    Yes, this make perfect sense as we can see it in practice. The foster care system shows what happens when the community takes the place of the family. Abuse, neglect, and other social ills virtually disappear overnight for children under state control. – Wait, this is opposite day, right?

  23. Ding-A-Ling says:

    Funny how a black woman (“African American” or whatever the P.C. term is) talks about children as though they belong to someone – like SLAVES!

    Funny how these “enlightened” individuals tend to promote the most oppressive agendas that would make people like Adolf Hitler blush. The funny part is how they don’t seem to realize it.

    And if you think a libtard moron does understand their hypocritical “beliefs” then watch the video again because this one idiot clearly does NOT!

    Kids are NOT slaves, chattel or anything else that “belong” to anyone except PARENTS! The problem with idiots like that libtard is that they tend to ignore the fact that a child’s parent(s) is RESPONSIBLE for TEACHING their kids how to be good productive people. But then, “responsibility” seems to be a 4-letter word in the libtard Obama world.
