commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: What Should the Duggars Have Done?
As a parent, my first duty is to stop the behavior. That likely means the abuser out of the home and somewhere where either he/she is getting treatment OR at family/friend's house w/o children and the abuser going to treatment.
You don't leave temptation in front of someone who already succumbed.

He touched his sisters and a babysitter? I thought it was other girls. And his parents are okay because they said the girls were asleep and didn't know. Really? And the babysitter didn't know either?
We had "safe-guards?" You mean you put locks on their bedroom doors and yet, he still did it again AFTER that? And a "couple more times?" You enabled a sex abuser.
And all this "over the clothes" until ...it wasn't. The girls - were awake - "didn't understand it." Oh, Mrs. Duggar believe me, they will remember and will grow to hate you for not protecting them.
It's just weird how they go on and on to protect Josh and almost not the girls, saying over and over, the girls didn't know what was happening.
And you sent him to some "counseling" guy you knew?
As parents you aren't "mandatory reporters?" You are to God, buster.
And Josh has a "tender conscience" or is it a guilty conscience?
All this "accredited, professional counseling" came years later?
I do not believe - for a minute - it was ever just his sisters.
Jesus H. Christ, you sanctimonious idiots. You do know we can hear you when you speak.
commented on Guest Editorial: Don't Let Senate Republicans Pass a Budget That Undermines Our System of Justice
This is EXACTLY what public education advocates did NOT want to happen. A Sophie's Choice of cuts.
The Legislature should not be robbing Peter to pay Paul. They should be doing two things:
- either enacting new revenue streams to pay for all these needs
- taking away tax breaks for large corporations
But we are halfway thru this special session and where's a budget? Nowhere.
I hope they enjoy their raises.
