I'm getting so sick and tired of this "intellectual secular idiocy" in our school systems.
My neighbors, the two lesbians next door that I have spoken about often, asked me what I would like for Christmas.
I was quite surprised, when they gave me a Timex! It was very nice of them, but I'm pretty sure that they misunderstood me, when I said:
"I wanna watch !"
Gotta thank my old HS buddy John Keating fer that one.
Janet Napolitano (DHS) requested that we all be observant for Suspicious activity at Walmart!
**SIGH**. Y'all simply ALL must go over to Blowing Sanitary #1 and read what happened to 10 high school students who came to school wearing Christmas sweaters and were singing (heaven forbid), Christmas Carols while handing out Candy Canes. Believe me, this story is a great example of secularism and PC to extremes. I had t'take an extra blood pressure pill after reading about the way these fine young students were treated by their school.
I have maintained for many years that after the college students of the 60's and early 70's got done throwing their juvenile temper tantrums with riots, sit-ins, and protests of every sort, because someone said NO to them for one of the first times in their lives, they continued on with their educations and eventually, like Bill Ayers ( a personal friend of Obozo and a 60's radical that bombed police station killing a sergeant), became college professors and subtly and quietly began teaching their poison secularism, and that America was a bad country to our college youth. While we were struggling to make a living and raise our families, God was, and has been taken taken out of our schools and government sectors, producing people like Bill Maher and his atheist, irreverent ilk.
We are seeing the results of this today in both our present college professors and those present day elementary, middle school and high school teachers, who profess and promote their secular, anti-American and liberal agenda's to today's youth. Upon talking with my grand children on several occasions regarding American history, I found they had NOT been taught a great many things about the Revolutionary War, WWII or any of our battles for the freedoms we have enjoyed for years. What they DID know about was all the BAD things about America, slavery, the horrible Indian campaigns and the unjust things done to Native Americans. They knew all about the travesties of the Civil Rights movements of the 50's & 60's, and the murders committed by racist Ku Klux Klan members on both white and black people alike. They knew all about Watergate and a corrupt President Nixon. The list goes on. They had not been taught about the generosity of the American people helping other countries in need at times of crisis and how our brave men and women died making other nations free. The lessons about America were totally unbalanced, in favor of the negative.
Our children have now been taught for at least two generations of all the undeniably bad things and mistakes this country has made throughout or history. There is almost NO sense of national pride or patriotism in many of our youth of today. We, the folks reading this article at this moment must also take a goodly share of this blame for not having taught, talked about and informed our children while at home of the good in America and instilling some sense of patriotism and loyalty to our great nation.
I suspect that one would probably find that a large percentage of those fine young men and women who are presently serving in the Military in Afghanistan and Iraq probably had a parent or grandparent who was past military and would talk with them at home about the nobility of this nation and how we got and maintained our freedoms for over 250 years.
As parents and grand-parents, it's time to step up. Time for grandparents like myself to begin telling our grandchildren and great grandchildren the things they are not hearing or learning about in school, but, like I always say, I could be wrong.
Feel free to leave comments as to what you think can be done, and must be done to reverse this trend.
OK, that's Cookie's rant fer the week.
