Very well said guys! I just get my ass in a pinch every time someone thinks I am running with fucking gossip. Just because a blogger source page is running and categorizing for easy access videos and opinions does not mean it lacks accuracy.

My experience of being thrown to the wolves (into the system) was nightmarish to say the least. Awareness and education is essential to effect any real changes. There wasn't shit when I was a kid- we were just pushed through the cracks and no one was the wiser.

And you're right Melliferal, there is no federal mandate and nor is it constitutionally appropriate for the government to intervene or become involved in this- yet they are- which raises a truly frightening question: Why are they- what's in it for them?

The only answer is providing children as sexual objects for whatever reason- if not could someone please provide a hypothesis?

I disagree that's the only answer.

It's easy: when local governments manage to screw things up so greviously, local constituents get frustrated. When all their local, county, and state avenues are used up, they'll call their congresspeople. And congresspeople will jump at the chance to propose federal oversight (or at least some federal funding) in the name of helping children, because "He/She cares about our children" will look good on a commercial during the next electoral campaign. That's really all there is to it.

Children cannot consent; they can only comply.
