I think everyone on this forum is familiar with the Phelps family.
It surprises me that a member of a different "sect" with access to a Kalashnikov hasn't taken them out (yet)

Oh yeah, we've heard of them all right! For me, it's not so much the prejudice (I've got a few myself!) - it's that shiny, happy, smiley face (as evidenced in the pic) that I really want to punch!

Poisoning the minds of children is, to me, a form of abuse.

Sometimes I think there aught to be some kind of minimum criterea parents have to meet, before they are allowed to procreate.

Does that make me a fachist?

I have to say, I do find those photographs disturbing.

I don't think you are fascist getreal. Or indeed a fachist.

Not at all. You have to have a kriminal rekords check to work with children now - but you're free to create one and bring it up with no licence at all.

Apparently, being a "parent" means you're automatically trustworthy! (At least as far as your own flesh and blood is concerned.)

So, remind me - where does most child abuse occur?

I googled it and it's a really good idea. This is on the Boston Craigslist:
Wanna go to a bar thats not near a T stop? Driving to your friends birthday party. Now there is a way for you to drink and enjoy yourself without the risk of drinking and driving afterwards. Call Boston's Designated Driver, we will send a team of driver to drive YOU AND YOUR CAR. We are not a taxi. We are a professional designated driving service committed to getting Bostonians home safely with their cars. Save the number 617-652-0233 in your phone so next time your drinking you know who to call for a safe ride. Check us out at www.BostonsDD.com or call us at 617-652-0233. Our rates are $30 for up to 5 miles, $40 for up to 10, and $50 for up to 20. However, you always get $5 off when picked up at a partnering location and we always give you a free bottle opener key chain that gets you a dollar off. You drink. We drive.
Carpe diem. Savour every moment.

Thanks Lewist!

A designated driver can also be someone that the people in the group decide on ahead of time who will drive everyone home. That way you don't have to pay for a service. Either way, brilliant idea. :D
