It's too easy to play the "LOLCONSERVATIVES" game, but I don't think it's entirely fair to go around crowing that the parents failed because she got knocked up. I don't care what the parents tried to instill in their kids, shit happens. Girls get pregnant whether or not the parents say "don't have sex" or "okay, just be sure to use a condom."

As for the boyfriend, I dunno. I understand that good money can be made in certain trades without a diploma, and it's not that uncommon for kids to do that in some areas and end up just fine. But I still think he should suck it up and finish high school.

Maybe it's pride saying "I want to provide for my new child," but it's not like these crazy kids are going to end up destitute because he finishes high school instead of jumping into the workforce.

I certainly do think it's best to at least take the GED in short order if you're not going to finish, since it's harder to pass later and you'll need that certification should you change your mind and decide to go to college (or into many kinds of jobs). Based on the AP interview all this is coming from, he'll be working as an apprentice electrician in the oil fields; to me the fact that he's going for that, rather than stocking shelves or flipping burgers, suggests that he's serious about acquiring longterm marketable skills now.

Are his political leanings even known? He said in the interview that he hadn't registered to vote, doesn't "know anything" about Obama except "he seems like a good guy, I like him" but that naturally he'd be rooting for his future mother-in-law.

And that's the last I'm going to say about it, because I feel silly reading the tea leaves for someone I really know nothing about.

It is true you can sometimes make it well in the USA without a HS Diploma, but it's not the norm.

GASP!

I never thot about that scenario!!!


Poor Kids -if they get stuck with very homophobic parents- it certainly can ruin lives !!! And suicide among gay teens is higher than for straight teens.


Didn't / was it Alan Keys who throw his lesbian daughter out of the family home a few years back?

So because her daughter is pregnant it means she did something wrong as a parent? Really now? Suddenly we are so judgemental of ones parenting skills that we use a teen pregnancy to determine their ability as a parent?



Excellent.

Your candidate must be winning for you to show up with such statement.s

I truly hope you are all not disappointed. The gloating and bashing of conservatives with such sweeping generalizations makes me wonder what will happen in here if your guy loses.

Not that you're generalizing or anything.
