    Don't even get me started on that chaplaincy program!!!!!!
    I've read that and love the ideas, 100% agree with them, minus the defunding of private schools!

    Yep, while properly qualified social workers and pychologists fight to have more than half a day a week in each school bc the funding isn't there.

    Yep :/ one of the things I hate most about the liberal party is their flagrant encouragement of negative bias and general nastiness. All of them are smug snide asssholes and encourage the same attitude in the general public to push their unfair policies.
