To stop any bullying or fights, for one thing.


If nothing else, Jerry Sandusky proved that "straight" people perhaps no one can be trusted around children, in said situations.
If I were a parent, I would not allow my children to be in any situation, where they were undressing in front of adults....if that means they go to study hall, instead of gym, so be it.

I don't think the answer to that problem is to not trust any adult in a locker room.

Do yinz think that maybe the political organization of the U.S. is out-of-date? Should we instead just be one big country, as opposed to a collection of states?

Or not? The argument that government is better when it governs closer to the people holds water. So why not extend that a bit? Why not break the sub-federal government down into smaller bits? Say, regional collections of counties with like-minded interests? Fifty states? Why not five hundred states? Why is one better than another?

It seems kind of silly to be using these political divisions that were decided (in many cases) rather arbitrarily a century or more ago.

Why not let PA break up into East, Central, and West? Why not let western Kansas have its wish to separate from the East? Why not chuck Florida altogether? (That last one's a joke, but I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to the idea.)

The British didn't own Florida. We bought it from the Spanish.

We also purchased most of the land west of the Mississippi from France. We annexed Texas and "won" California, AZ, and NM. Alaska was bought from the Russians.

True enough. But it's all good in the end, yes?

I mean, you wouldn't be partaking of the multiple delights of the internets had we not stolen this land and made it what it is.

What would be less silly to you? Things evolved to how we are today. Yeah, we could change it, but how hard is that going to be? Who makes the decisions? What about people that don't like those decisions? What would be the point of it all? What would be the benefits? Really, the local and state powers have been severely dwarfed by the Feds for a while now and I'd guess that most people think of us as one country under one rule than a collection of individual states. *shrug*
