Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.

A goon idea. Help convince your congresscritters. State legislators too. The math on government spendingThe goal is to establish cost/benefits for every govenment program.
1 in 4 Girls Has Sex DiseaseRead the article about the study, but this quote sums it up best...Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said the study shows that "the national policy of promoting abstinence-only programs is a $1.5 billion failure, and teenage girls are paying the real price."======================And yes Micki, if you're lurking, it DOES mention Perry and his attempt at prevention of HPV. Still think it's a bad idea?
ruh rohThe study was from 2003-4, so it's probably even worse now.====================='SHOCKING' FIGURES 26% Overall STD prevalence in girls 14-19 18% are infected with human papillomavirus, or HPV 4% with chlamydia 2.5% with trichomoniasis 2% with genital herpes

I still think it's a bad idea, Alan. I lost all and any trust I ever had in the government, or drug makers. *poof* If a parent wants their kid injected, then so be it. And the doctors are free to try to talk them into it, but no mandate.
As a matter of fact I do think it's a bad idea.But, why did you single me out? I should listen to Perry? Get real.
Alan here's the definition of lurking...I never said I wasn't reading this blog. Main Entry: lurkEtymology: Middle English; akin to Middle High German l'uren to lie in wait —more at LOWER Date: 14th century1 a : to lie in wait in a place of concealment especially for an evil purpose b : to move furtively or inconspicuously c : to persist in staying 2 a : to be concealed but capable of being discovered; specifically : to constitute a latent threat b : to lie hidden
But in internet patois, a lurker is one who reads but never posts. Related to definition 2, but without, AFAIK, any hint of being a threat, latent or not.
Well, I suppose I mainly speak standard English and am not fluent in internetese.Wiki sez: In Internet culture, a lurker is a person who reads discussions on a message board, newsgroup, chatroom, file sharing or other interactive system, but rarely participates.The term dates back to the mid-1980s. Because BBSs were often accessed by a single phone line (frequently in someone's home), there was an expectation that all who used a bulletin board would contribute to its content by uploading files and posting comments. Lurkers were viewed negatively, and might be barred from access by the sysop, if they did not contribute anything but kept the phone line tied up for extended periods.By contrast, many modern Internet communities now advise newbies to lurk for some time to get a feel for the specific culture and etiquette of the community, lest they make an inappropriate or redundant comment, ask a Frequently Asked Question, or incite a flame war. This leads to the tongue-in-cheek command to "lurk more". The verb to "de-lurk" means to start contributing actively to a community having been a lurker previously.There are also some who lurk on a forum habitually, and rarely, if ever, contribute. It is generally difficult to guess how many such lurkers are present, due to their silence. In flame-wars, a participant who is losing an argument will sometimes claim to receive email support from lurkers. This inspired Jo Walton to write a filk on the subject entitled "The Lurkers Support Me in Email".
Alan --- It seems I don't have the plug-ins installed to watch videos.Thank goodness, I might be tempted!
Well, "lurking" wasn't meant in a negative way. I just wanted your reaction to these test results because I knew you were against girls getting the shots. Carol says she's against a mandate. When anybody that wants to could opt out, I didn't consider it a mandate. K, the number ONE lesson is they should be taught about protection, birth control and a hella lot more than abstinence. Wow, almost one in five teenage girls, 18%, have HPV... and alot of them could DIE of cancer. That's just a big WOW for me.
It seems I don't have the plug-ins installed to watch videos.Yeah, you use Unix, don't you? No built-in Windows Media Player, huh? haha You could download RealPlayer or WinAmp though. I still like WMP for videos though, and WinAmp for music.
My bad. You gotta have Apple's QuickTime as well. I THINK they all have a version that'll jive with your system.
No, no, no....anyone who wants the shots, go right ahead, have them. But, no coercion from the local, state, or federal governments suggesting that it is necessary. And, no provisions that make it necessary to "opt out" -- if the Perrys of the government want this *protection* for all girls aged 12-19 (or whatever it is), make it available for free, no questions asked, for anyone who "opts in."Education, education, education....
We are wasting precious time not working to defeat McCain. He's sitting around doing nothing, making damn goodwill tours. Geezus.I'm rather swamped right now. And late, just stopping by to register my general disgust at the political milieu.Wow. The Dem party is definitely scorched.
No mandates,I knew this would come up. The shots, I mean.
Sorry to burst everyones bubble but there are lurkers but you guys ain't them.Sitemeter tells all, well almost all.Can tell what the general location of the posters is and therefore is no surprise when we all know where each other lives.Lurking feds? Or a fear tactic to unsettle some? So much info, so few staff.
...make it available for free, no questions asked, for anyone who "opts in."Yeahhhh, that sounds like a winner!
Sorry to bug y'all again about our basketball team, but... they won again tonight for their 20th in a row. That's tied for second longest in a season. Think there might be a longer one over parts of two seasons.
