Guys, I got tired of having to hide the screen from my kids when I was reading the Forum posts because of the widespread use of the F-word and other profanity. So--it's not personal if I muted you, or your thread.
If there are playing at that level, they are your kids, but they are hardly kids. Jesus, Mujus! You gonna shelter them until you die and only then let them experience the real world? At least one of them is over 18 to play in a college orchestra. Last I checked, real colleges have *very* few child prodiges attending them and you have to attend the school to play in it's orchestra.
"Thats right Sarg, Mujus's 5 year old kids should be frequently exposed to live sex shows, mass executions, frecal freaks and... well, webdip. This will do them a lot of good and thicken their skins SO THICK Mmmmmmm! Hey it worked for Albert Fish!"
Draug. I don't know if you're just stupid, or if you just like making inane and foolish comments. But college orchestra's are typically the sort of thing run by a college for all ages. In fact most colleges with a conservatory, have orchestra's for a vast level of different ages.
I call bullshit on your "typically" comment. You point to *one* orchestra with a children's program. I live near (well 30 minutes from) and went to UC's College-Conservatory of Music and can tell you it only had a summer program for High School students and even that wasn't called a college orchestra. They called it the Summer Music Institute. And you had to be at least a Junior in high school to attend. How do I know? Cause I went to it my Junior and Senior years.
So *some* may have program's for all ages, but you speak out of your ass when you insist that college orchestras are *typically* for all ages and *most* with a conservatory have them.
Finally, considering *most* schools start teaching musical instruments in 5th grade, his kids, would at a minimum *probably* be at least 13 if they are in a community orchestra (I was in Middletown's Civic Chior and their Community Orchestra throughout sophmore, junior, and senior year and they had an age requirement of 15). So again, he is sheltering them at way to old an age for them to be sheltered.
Alright, say some of your friends dated a chick who is, let's say, a whore. Now, you go after her just for that reason; not to date her, but just to get a little somethin somethin. Does that break the "bro code"?
Those in the human race who are lazy, dishonest, unmotivated, drug addicts, drunks and unreliable want government to be strong so government can provide them a life they would never or could never provide for themselves by their own efforts. This thread is dedicated to them, and to keeping Govt. weak
