No New Posts Let It Bleed

"Confucius had some fine insights, but also taught that the individual should conform to the norm of accepted moral standards and duties. The only problem with that is that someone has to decide what\'s normal. And there goes your freedom." -- Willie Nelson ~ The Tao Of Willie

No New Posts The Troubled Teen Industry

Compliance is not character. Weakness is not strength. Regression is not growth. Tough love is a hate group. Time for some straight talk about the Troubled Parent Industry. This is a forum where all viewpoints are both welcome and fair game for debate. It\'s a snap-shot of the Teen Help industry, and there\'s nothing inspiring or heart-warming about it. In fact, it can get pretty damned ugly.

No New Posts Public Sector Gulags

Just like any good welfare mama, The Toughlove Hategroup has it\'s friends in government and gets is handouts. Here\'s a place for discussion of public sector gulags like the Florida State run Boot Camp where Martin Lee Anderson was killed. Florida also runs wilderness programs, like Eckerd Camp and the Sheriff\'s Boys and Girls Ranches. And it seems their already bad track record has taken a considerable dive since Brother JEB! took up residence in a public housing unit in Tallahassee.
