She can always fire one of her own staff (on whatever pretext she deems necessary) to give that boy the position.

Their concern typically ends at the moment of birth. Pre-birth, it's a precious life that needs saving. Post-birth, it's just another person to get denied universal health care, denied a decent living wage, and eventually to be sent off to die in a war for no good reason.

He may be making a calculation that it's better for him and his family--or simply morally preferable to him--to drop out now and perhaps get a GED later if need be, so that he's able to help support his wife and child from the get-go. My guess is it's actually pretty common in Alaska for young men to leave high school early and take jobs in the oil fields, which pay fairly well and don't require a highschool degree. It's none of our business really.

Nice try...but no cigar. What I am doing however is seeing the ugly side of the so called "left" in your country and calling it out. Of coarse I want to see Obama become President and I've stated that numerous times. However, seeing the seething, ugly side of the so called "left" in America and the media hypocrisy has left me with a certain unease. Mind you, it's a lot less of an unease than if McCain/Palin actually won but it still bugs me. Regarding a "crush" I supposedly have on Palin...nope, sorry, o.k. she's hot and alot nicer to look at than most women in politics that have come before her i.e. Hillary, Madeline Albright, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Geraldine Ferraro etc. etc. and I love the fact that she really gets these people's "goats" so to speak- but in the end it's her policies and strange beliefs that scare me. If she were not so right-wing I would have a bit of a "crush" on her but alas, her positions make it impossible. What I like about her is how she strikes fear in the factions of the left that have always bothered me i.e. certain media, certain "feminists" and the like - that is why it may seem like sometimes I am defending her. The same people that scream bloody murder about her view (and apparently it is quite extreme) of abortion refuse to take a second look at the partial abortion vote that Obama voted against (which apparently is quite extreme the other way) or the the glee in which most of the media began thrashing her about her family moments after she was chosen as McCain's running mate. There is a certain disdain that some of the so called "left" have of her and people like her that I am deeply concerned that one day in the future it will backfire and backfire bigtime. Lucky for us it seems like it won't be this election but mark my words that if America keeps being this divided and vicious (on both sides) then one day Palin, or someone like her, will occupy the Whitehouse.

You realize the crush thing was a joke, right?

I just think you should be a little more even handed when it comes to criticism. Call out the criticisms that you think are unfair and explain why, but stop attacking everyone who has legitimate criticisms. It does no good.

Come on now, its just plain old dumb to drop out now with only a few months to go to get a diploma that will last you a life time. If your a HR person would you pick the guy who has the GED or the diploma? Maybe he won't like working the oil fields, then what? He's totally limiting his choices for a life time and besides the child isn't even here yet. Is no one on either side of the families willing to help these kids out? Thats what it looks like. If he was my son there is no way in heck I would ever let him do that and even my 15 year old son saw how stupid this is. Really how can you even argue that its a good choice, its maybe noble but not smart. You're right that its not our business but when I have seen how some conservatives feel they are somehow morally higher than the other side I feel the need to point out the short comings from theirs...I'm leveling the playing field.
