A certain Anonymous comment demands a clarification! Anonymous pointed out that there is a flawed assumption that volunteering in the community means volunteering with the poor…and there is also the assumption that only poor household go to shit….and she or he seems to think European public schools have their shit together.
First, a bitch needs to clarify that mentoring is needed in all manner of households. One need only look at the recent rash of suburban homeless beatings, random incidents of baseball bat based heathen behavior in Olivette and huge drug problems (come on, why the hell else are y’all testing all those prepped out boys?) at certain St. Louis area private schools to know that drama does not discriminate on the basis of income.
Mayhap Big Brothers Big Sisters should open up a special West County branch?
Second, on the issue of folks not having enough time to volunteer…well, that is bullshit. Sorry! Relief work and community volunteering are not the same thing. Some people are confusing not having time with having fucked up priorities and generally not giving a shit until the problem manifests itself in their living room in the form of Mitzi or Hunter’s massive and expensive meltdown at 15 or 16.
Amazing how that schedule gets clear as a motherfucker when shit hits home, huh?
And in my previous post a bitch was speaking specifically about those conservative bullshit mongers who pontificate about chil’ren, society and family-values then turn around and flee to the well guarded bastions of white flight, quietly schedule their daughter’s abortion over Spring break because it's a 'mistake' when it happens to Mitzi and vocally vote for anti-family, working people hating and small dog kicking politicians while riding a wave of sanctified marriage based bullshit that barely hides the tax cut for the rich that is the only true motivation for getting their greedy, money hungry, hypocritical asses to the polls.
Just follow the W’04 stickers home for a good hard sniff if you’re unfamiliar with the pungent odor.
As to European schools…well, a bitch can’t speak to them. This bitch attended public school right here in the great state of Missouri! Yes, a bitch did flee…but that was more a family issue and not a problem with my education. We used to handle our shit better and we were not mirroring the European system back in the day…though a bitch is rather fond of those cute little uniforms with the shorts and the school boy hats (wink).
But fuck it…a bitch is willing to look at anything to get education back on track, my ass just thinks a strong analysis of past American successes should be lumped in with those adoring gazes being thrown across the pond.
Okay...clarification done...toodles until tomorrow!
