When all else fails....





It is widely known that Democrats are not as good at twisting and perverting the truth as Rethugicans however, John McCain and crew sunk to a new level. Honestly, when you can not compete on the issues you have nothing else to fall back on but negativity. I hope that the American people are better than hate and fear ads. I hope that the American people are ready for a leader that is willing to stick to the issues and leave the Karl Rove game to those that have NO substance.

"It is shameful and downright perverse for the McCain campaign to use a bill that was written to protect young children from sexual predators as a recycled and discredited political attack against a father of two young girls.... John McCain told Time magazine he couldn't define what honor was. Now we know why," said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton."

Each class or course in comprehensive sex education offered in any of grades K through 12 shall include instruction on the prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including the prevention, transmission and spread of HIV.

Looks like sex ed for kindergartners to me.

“No pupil shall be required to take or participate in any class or course in comprehensive sex education if the pupil's his parent or guardian submits written objection”

“and refusal to take or participate in such course or program shall not be reason for suspension or expulsion of such pupil.”


“Course material and instruction shall emphasize that the pupil has the power to control personal behavior. Pupils shall be encouraged to base
their actions on reasoning, self-discipline, sense of responsibility, self-control, and ethical considerations, such as respect for oneself and others.”

“Course material and instruction shall teach pupils to not make unwanted physical and verbal sexual advances and how to say no to unwanted sexual advances”

From the website you provided; sounds like the parents have a choice and no one is being forced. Also sounds like it is comprehensive and teaches kids about their right to say no when children so often feel that they don't. I dunno but sounds like he may be on to something like stopping Chester Molesters

Sure, tell America that you have to teach 5 year olds about condoms to protect them from perverts.

Let me know how that works out for you.

Phelps, if you want to ride down the slippery perverted slope of accusing Obama a father of two young girls or perversion like your nominee of choice so be it. However, Obama has on numerous occasions stated that he wants age appropriated comprehensive sex education.

"Shall" is one of those law-words that doesn't bend. Shall doesn't mean you decide if it is appropriate before you do it -- you just do it.

I don't doubt that Obama didn't intend to vote for that, because I seriously doubt he bothered to read the bill before he voted for it. I think he is incompetent, not malicious.

BTW, I've found the curriculum that went with the bill:

First Phelps it is a Guideline not a Curriculum in the teaching world and in the world of health education the words are not interchangeable which is what the author of your referenced blog is doing. Since you work at a law firm I will let you use the legal term for misrepresentation of information through the use of inaccurate wording.

"Mistake." Mea culpa.

Doesn't change the end result, and it certainly doesn't change his vote.
