Too young to debate? That's debatable

Original post made on May 7, 2013

This is wonderful. This is ARGUABLY the most exciting news that I've ever read in the Voice. Great work, Mr. Veronin.

That's debatable, Mr. Ideafarm.

But will these children be able to find their place in a dumbed down America? Will they go through life deeply confused by the fact that they like living out of a backpack and can't fathom why everyone else wants to own a house? Will they be able to find mates since they refuse to spend hours ****'ing and instead spend their time reading Wikipedia and science journals and studying mathematics?

On reflection, it appears to me that this teacher is sabotaging these children's futures. Perhaps he is a terrorist. At the very least, this teacher is un-American and probably a Communist.

Oh, wait. Being a Communist is American these days. Now I'm confused. What, oh what, is this teacher really up to?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
