Awesome August Holidays

Aug 01, 2014

Besides all the crazy, weird and totally bizarre day-long occasions that happen, August is the official month used to recognize Catfish, Golf, Eye Exams, Water Quality, Romance Awareness, Peaches, Foot Health, American Artists, Home Businesses and Inventors. And then there are the week-long observances in August: Clown Week (first week), Elvis Week (second week), Apple Week (second week), Smile Week (second week), Air Conditioning Appreciation Week (third week) and American Dance Week (third week).

No matter what you celebrate, we at Kidzworld wish you a Happy August!

You can't ignore the reason why people do the things they do when it comes to something like this. When you're born into an aggressive and poor environment it's not surprising that you would turn out to be aggressive and poor yourself. I'm saying that we ought to have a little empathy for those who find themself in that situation and try to help them (which helps society as a whole) rather than torture/kill them, as beneficial as it may be, though more efficient alternatives of testing on mice and rats exist and are currently used.

If I recall correctly the states that do enforce the death penalty have very similar or higher murder rates than states that don't enforce it.

Fair enough. But, the thing is, they wouldn't have to enforce extreme measures such as this if people weren't so unbelievably cruel. If they propose a threat such as, "if you ######## assault or murder someone, etc, you'll get tested on." And I feel like that would significantly lower crime rates. And the non-violent criminals would be spared from it. If you just stole or did any illegal substances, etc, there's no reason to be harmed. Are you saying that if someone grows up in an unstable environment, their malevolent actions are excused?
