  1. That 2012 team Luers team was fun to watch. 3 losses on the field, one to Snider and two to two very good Ohio schools. https://www.hudl.com/video/2/32745/5721a2c390eead5d90871cca 11 state championship coaches video https://www.hudl.com/video/2/32745/5721a5870c5e6812245fb141
  2. I liked the Luers-Tri-West game at the time. https://www.hudl.com/video/2/32745/5721a46a0c5e6812245d0f1e
  3. I just go with the flow. I don't think contraction is needed. Kids want to represent their schools. Let the kids be kids.
  4. You can take some history courses, too. Of course, you might want to take them at a private university. Nobody's work is diminished. He does very good things and doesn't horde his ideas, nor his wealth, so it seems. My parents never told me the world wasn't fair. They told me to do the best I can, visit the world, do what I would like to do, be kind, and to be respectful....among other things. Absolutely, one should choose. But in a capitalistic society, one has to play within the capitalistic rules set up by that government. Some say China is communist, some say socialist, some say fascist, but there is a lot of capitalism happening in their ranks. I think large churches are communist or socialist, but you don't see their members saying that, but when members need help, the churches shut their doors more often than not. Small, local churches help until it hurts. Simple observations. As usual, we're more alike than we're different, we just have different ways of perceiving things and communicating. i'm not deriding as much as stating that they are controlling/monopolistic, the antithesis of capitalism. From living in Latin America, I can tell you that from my experience and perspective, the racism, sexism, classism, and other isms are worse. I'm not sure about Asia, but here that they could be.
  5. I'm thinking more of the generational wealthy and royalty and the large churches of the world. I am by no means putting anyone down who works hard. I know a few-- trust fund babies who work very hard. Simply ignore.
  6. Nope, I've studied it extensively. They often inherited it or were in the right place at the right time. I'm not demanding they share anything with me. I'm telling you that very few families, and even churches, have controlled the world for a long time. It's changing slowly, but surely. As the white population shrinks across the world, things will change tremendously. I'm not asking you to believe me, but you can certainly research it from good, sound institutions, not places with an agenda. I suppose I'm thinking power/wealth together.
  7. Nope, not you! I need to make sure I get my quotes in correctly. The science is fairly clear. You can be what you want to be.
  8. I'm not sold on too much of that. The fault often lies on the fact that a few families accumulate wealth and make it difficult for the rest of us. Evolution isn't as exact as you two are making it out, but you'd have to explore that more. As usual, we're all human and investigate and buy into what pleases us at whatever place in life we happen to be.
  9. The lack of social mobility has a lot to do with it, but you can look at it how you'd like. You can see this, positively and negatively, in societies the world over. Survival of the fittest, more like learning to be the best, or at least better than the next person.
  10. Interesting. What ism do you want? capitalism, socialism, communism, fascism
  11. As a person who has taught in 3 different countries, my perspective is if you remove the government, the poor will suffer even more than they do now. I do think schools should be governed, but as locally as possible.
  12. You don't see many nuns in the Catholic schools anymore. The church has a lot of money, you'd think they'd do better. I know the church has a rich tradition and lots of rules, but I was turned down for a job because of something someone else did. That's crazy!!!! Just opinions.
  13. If you ever would like to see a country that would be severely mismanaged by the haves and woefully unrepresented by the have nots, you'd have this in your case Mr. Muda69.
