and i thought this thread is about opinions on whether the philippines would have been better as an american state!  hey, bro enz, why is this being hijacked by rizal and his kind?

as for the topic at hand, here's my 2-cents' worth:  would have been better at what?  materially, morally, politically, spiritually?  frankly, there's no telling if any country would have been better if it were not independent.  it's like saying that a cat would have been better if it were a dog.

we learn to like what is thrown at us or where we're thrown in, i've learned. 

years ago, i cried so hard when my banana republic told me to stop working.  i got depressed for a year and was so hot-headed, i became terrible to live with.  i was even embarrassed to buy lipstick with money that i believed i didn't earn. 

i learned to live with my new situation and began to appreciate the time on my hands.  now i could not imagine having to work again, outside of the house as an employee, that is.  but you know how it is, like cowboys whose work is never done, housewives' work is just as never-ending.

believe me, you have a lot to be thankful for as a working girl.  (maybe you just need to fall in love?  again?  ahem.  ssshhhh. :-*)

and may your wish be granted, wolfpack.

i'm a stay-at-home housewife, so most of my time is with my family.  i can't think of a better arrangement, and i am glad because i also have enough space and time for myself.

Warm Regards.

and so is there a fine line between truth and self-packaging, between ego and preaching.  be that as it may, since you are in the position to tolerate or not and to judge what is personal and topical in this forum, i hope that you carry enough humility, in keeping with the way and the truth and the light whom you so often mention, to be able to tell the difference and to practice your forum power with magnanimity. 
 
it goes without saying that the real test of character is how a person in power practices that power sparingly.   

you deleted a certain ‘mark’ when you started your online bible study after he asked you a question, and then you went on and on with your bible quotes and interpretations as if, and i take care to say as if, the multitude should be awed and must listen and obey. 

well, there’s a whale of a difference between ‘sanctimonious’ and ‘sanctity’.  as for me, if i needed a homily, i’d go to church.

i believe this forum is also about news and fun and humor.  and ideas, the kind that flows in the currents of the mind when one has the luxury of time away from one’s daily cares, ideas that cross the mind in a flash like lighting that could go in any direction across a dark sky.  this forum catches and records those.  and we are all the better for it.

we already did, in addition to our own children.  we wanted a boy, but the welfare office does not allow baby-shopping.  they matched us with a girl who's now the light of our lives.

simple questions:

did generations past miss out because they had no similar sex education this early?  are we more sexually illiterate, or reproductively less healthy, because we had no such lessons in our pre-adolescent years?  

what if those in favor (the remarkable 63 percent) are parents who'd rather pass on their duties to the school because they're not too comfortable giving their children the lessons themselves?

what is the basis of this program, to begin with?  did curriculum planners arrive at a conclusion through scientific means that today's pre-adolescents are more mature to be formally introduced into the world of reproduction, or are they less responsible now so that they need to be taught sooner?  did these planners ever conclude that high school biology and health lessons aren't enough, so prior lessons are needed?  (i honestly don't know why this plan had come out.)

what if this program, said to be on its testing stage, turns out to be a failure?  will it be cancelled?  i mean, an experiment on some kind of lessons just might need a plan b to rectify a possible failure (i.e., more teenage pregnancies because the kids turned to each other for more experiments).         

our educational system can hardly produce globally competitive learning of science and math for our students, and now we're adding the burden of sex lessons or whatever metaphor it's called.  i am afraid.
