What is this world coming to? Haven't we got better things to worry about in school, such as, well, education? When was Sugar made a controlled substance? Am I crazy, or has this health craze just gone too far. I can understand obesity is a problem in this country, but there has got to better way to solve this problem, like maybe Educating kids and their parents?

I just heard about that on the news...What happened to self-control?

Wanna hear something even scarier? 1 in every 4 girls has an STD...

I heard that too, but i somehow wasn't surprised. Why do you think they want to make HPV vaccines manditory? They are even pushing it for both genders. People expect the government to take care of them, and don't want to be responsible for their own actions.

I thought HPV was only for girls, but yeah that is the most prevalent disease among girls.

On the topic of self-control, did you hear about the lady in New Jersey? She lost a million dollars gambling and blames it on the casinos for not stopping her. Link (http://www.gainesvillesun.com/article/20080308/NEWS/262806003).

The kid just got unsuspended and his position back, and it was removed from his record. Apparently they realized that they overreacted to the situation.

I mean, when skittles are outlawed, only outlaws will have skittles!

You guys hit the nail on the head - people have to assume responsibility for their own behaviours/actions.

As far as STD's goes, for obvious reasons, there are probably as many guys with these diseases as girls - and many of these diseases are hard to detect for 6-8 months after one is exposed to them and many cant be cured with an injection in the butt of antibiotics. Unfortunately, some folks will not apply common sense and continue risky behaviours such as multiple sex partners, sex outside the boundaries of marriage, etc.

Some how a state a stones throw north of here comes to mind, wonder why?:laughing: some people don't just don't think. Yet, what I don't understand is, Spitzer got the boot, like he should have, but his ho gets Immunity (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2008/03/15/2008-03-15_gov_spitzers_hooker_ gets_immunity.html) and public fame. So you can sell sex, but not skittles? Something is wrong here. All you hear about is how she had such a trouble life and she is such a great singer, and she did it because she had no other option. Move over Spears, you've been replaced.

She's an aspiring singer, and over the last week she made over a million dollars in song sales lol. I wish other politicians in his position had the balls to resign.
