Ann Coulter says Goodbye to Dan Rather

Ann bids Dan Rather farewell. Ann intros classic clips of RatherBiased. We shall in an odd way miss him.
Sometime soon.

Its a treat to hear Ann make a speech and even though this gem is dated it's certainly worth worth passing along. This is after all what I missed at UCONN thanks to a hoard of First Amendment-trashing, potentially violent liberal thugs who could not debate themselves out of a wet paper bag.

Oh course I need a visual aid and even though Ann herself hates this picture I LOVE IT. I want to frame it and put it up right on the wall next to my computer.

She looks like Alice in Wonderland to me. That would certainly fit our shared view that we live in a world still very much controlled by liberals who think it’s a good idea for schools to give ten year olds condoms and birth control pills.

Those of us who step forward and point out the insanity of such policies are told we are the crazy ones.

-- Which never fails to remind me of the chapter in Lewis Carroll's classic which Alice finds herself on trial with the insane Queen of Hearts as her judge.

Abstinence-only sex education is ignorant. Read the statistics - 50% or more of teens have sex before graduating from high school. If condoms or birth control aren't made available to these teens, imagine the staggering number of teen pregnancies we'd have in this country. You're only fooling yourself if you think such a method of instruction is effective.

Dude, mispelled the name of your "hero" in your own headline.

And you're going to become a journalist?

Good thing then that I am switching over to Political Science than huh?

I fixed it. Thanks.

No. You are wrong and let me tell you why.

We are talking about little little kids. I said 10 years old, not 17 years olds.

As Tammy Bruce says in her book “The Death of Right and Wrong” children do not have sexual needs.

Lets repeat that. Children do not have sexual needs.

They have plenty of other needs but they do not need condoms and birth control pills. Those are for grown-ups.

Kids need floors, ceilings and walls rules and ethics and boundaries. They need us to teach them right from wrong and sex at that tender age is not a “fact of life”.

Sex at that age is child abuse.

What you are doing by making contraception available to little kids is you are telling them it’s normal for them to have sex. No matter what else you say, that is the message you are sending and that is the message they will receive. You are for all practical purposes giving them permission.

This is a policy that is more likly to make good kids into bad kids than the reverse. You are throwing them all out the window based on the misconception that just because we can't stop 100 percent of the kids from having sex that we should give up on all of them.

It’s not normal and its just plain defeatist to think that such a policy has any hope of working. It won't. These kids are going to be more confused than ever.

It’s just sick. If I was so blessed with children I don't think I would ever let him leave the house with the world we live in.

Home schooling is sounding better and better all the time.

Sex education does not promote sexual activity. It informs. The first object of sex ed when I was growing up was to teach students about their bodies. It didn't promote us having sex, but it did go into specifics on contraceptives and the like. Believe it or not, children at the ages of 11 and 12 are having sex. These children NEED to know that there are ways to prevent pregnancy. Many of them don't know they can (and will) get pregnant and contract diseases from such activity. Contraceptives and birth control greatly reduces the number of teen/adolescant pregnancy and instances of STDs.

Home schooling CAN be a good option if you really feel so strongly about children not being allowed into the world, but at some point they need to be allowed to leave the bubble. I say let them out ARMED as opposed to completely naiive to their surroundings.

Required reading:

The Death of Right and Wrong by Tammy Bruce.

Go to the libary and read the two chapters at least about the sexulatization of children.

As far as the buble goes again I am talking about 10 year olds sweetie.

I hope you don't have any little ones. Its not normal for 10 year olds to have sex -- period.

Case closed.
