Those Socialistic Brits

Can you imagine reading this in the United States? Oh for a society where "solidarity" isn't a slur...

Just goes to prove you can be a die-hard social conservative and a socialist all at once.

I loved this piece so much, I emailed it to my Mum and sister (a Special Ed teacher in Florida). Thanks for posting it.

It touches on all the reasons I put my kids in Montessori for their first few years of schooling. Maria Montessori was a genius, and I only wish all schools--especially public schools--would adopt her methods.

I would tend to think that most social conservatives are somewhat "socialist" in the sense you are describing. Most of the social conservatives I know are very enthusiastic about community. Not necessarily the community as a whole, but their part of it. My church has it's share of social conservatives - even among the democrats or indy liberals. Nearly everyone there embraces the community we have with great enthusiasm. When anyone in the church needs a hand moving or working on a project, there is never a problem finding help. When a family is concerned about problems with their child, there are people willing to help, any way they can.

I have my serious problems with social conservatives, but their sense of community is not one of them. Excepting that they are not always as inclusive as I would like, in their definition of their community. One of the reasons I go to the church I do is that they do not fall into that trap.

Grumpy old people expounding on how todays teenagers are all crap is hardly something we don't see here in America. I don't see anything particularly unique or insightful about this article.

Informative details on history of viagra confirm that the anti-impotency drug Viagra was actually developed by researchers with the purpose of curing angina but incidentally during clinical trails, the drug was found effective in treating erectile dysfunction in men. With clinical results demonstrating the powerful effects of Viagra in triggering off erections necessary for sexual intercourse,impotency afflicted worldwide opted for the medication and the viagra phenomenon also offered suitable assistance to them in countering erectile dysfunction. Slowly and gradually Viagra has developed a deepest level of relationship with men which has further led to an indelible association between viagra and sexuality. And right now viagra and erectile dysfunction related tidbits are popular throughout the world and erectile dysfunction afflicted men worldwide are administering Viagra under medical supervision.
