The Politics of Concrete Operational Thinkers

Illinois Representative John Shimkus (R) may not have received "The Talk." You know, "The Birds and the Bees" lecture.

What happens if we don't? Were you ever taught what happened in the past when we didn't pay for such things?

To see what conditions were like before Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, you only need to see the photos dating from the Great Depression all the way back through Jacob Riis to the Gilded Age.
