I don't think I want to know a six-year-old who isn't a dreamer, or a sillyheart. And I sure don't want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don't have a college degree. I don't even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they're ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they're no good. You so much as scowl at my niece, or any other kid in this school, and I hear about it, and I'm coming looking for you! Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam.

You bundled a bunch of stuff together and I just asked about ADD.  I picked it because it is one of the top learning problems in schools.  ADD (Attention Deficit) ADHD (ADD with hyperactivity) and dyslexia.  Based on my observations and readings and discussions with other parents, these seem to be the dominant biology-based learning problems. 

(There are home environment issues creating learning problems, also.  These are not child biology but may have a root in parent biology)

Untreated, these problems cause the child to become frustrated and eventually they decide they are stupid.  Once they are convinced they are stupid, they see endless failure into the future.  They are more inclined to drugs, violence and suicide.

If a pill can help a kid through a biology barrier and give them a chance for a better life, I think they deserve it.  It would be grossly unfair (perhaps even unethical) to withhold treatment.  Similar to denying glasses to the nearsighted or denying a insulin to a diabetic.

Your stated opinion is popular at this time.  I think some radio hosts have used it to spark controversy and gather audiences.  I have held that opinion on many topics, also.  “We didn’t have _____ back then and we turned got by fine.”  My grandmother still has that opinion about computers and the internet.  In the past, you are right, people found their way.  They didn’t have to learn from schools and could learn on the job as a farmer or miner or rancher or laborer.  In older times, a man could live on the frontier and have no need for reading and math.  I guess there are still places to hide from society – like NEVADA.  Today is different.  There is more to learn in life now.  Not just school work.  How life and society operate is much more complex than it used to be.  And the world is smaller.  Global mixing of ideas and agreements are evolving into the new standard operating procedure.

For such a young man, you sure seem to cling to old man ideas.

You seee the problem today in our society is that people are so quick toblame everyhting on a disorder and then prescribe a drug to somehow subdue they so called disorder.  THey have pills for everything now, anger, over happiness, sadness, anything you need, buy it in a bottle of 60.  Instead of trying to work out the problem and face it themselves they pop a pill.  Years ago many people most likely had similar problems yet the somehow managed to work through them without the aid of a pill or diagnosis that says they are wrong in the head.  Yes im sure many other people had these so called disorders and couldnt work through them and had trouble throughout life.  So to answer you question if i have been evaluated for ADD, no i havent.  Will i ever go, no i wont.  I have no need to, i can workout all my problems without the aid of a pill, unlike so many other people in our pathetic society.

In response to:
have you ever considered evaluation for ADD?

In response to:
On a very surreal level this is perhaps your best statement EVER (although I didn't real the chicken journal which got good reviews).  The message comes through even though you make the reader work at understanding what the hell you are talking about.

I got it.  It was good. 

( I haven't seen Matrix3 yet but guaranteed I will)

In response to:
Thats what im eating and drinkoing now.  (still trying my best to elminate sugary badness from my diet...and the green beans are cause they rock almost as hard as brussel sprouts!

Anyways just got back from The Matrix Revolutions.......its worth seeing for the Zion fights alone...and atleast it didnt such as much ass as that second piece of crap.

Today...i realized how retarded i was....ya ya i know your saying...but arsehole...you still are retarded....but i was a lot worse.  In the theate a few high school guys were behind me and Sue talking as high school boys do...   and they were talking about "smoking a bowl"  now, i know many of you know i had my stupid time of my life when i lived in beaumont texas, i did a lot of drugs.  but thats another story.....anyways the phrase smoke a bowl....say it out loud...  you cant say it and NOT sound retarded.  Man    maybe its just age catching up with me...who knows...but people in high school  (not all of them mind you  just some) are really really dumb.   listening to them they act like they know everyhting and can control the world.  arg  im on a tangent.......ok   i just realized how stupid i sounded always talking about smoking and bowl or what not   i realiuze now   i was a dumbass....i wish i could go back in time and show myself how stupid it was to say smoke a bowl........no  i wouldnt have told myself to not do drugs....just not to sound like a moron while doing it.

I was retarded for talking liek a drug user while using drugs.......go figure
