    Here Is What Your Children Are Being Taught In School

    Wake Up America.



    Imagine an America
    Where strip mines are fun and free
    Where gays can be fixed
    And sick people just die
    And oil fills the sea

    We don’t have to pay for freeways!
    Our schools are good enough
    Give us endless wars
    On foreign shores
    And lots of Chinese stuff

    We’re the children of the future
    American through and through
    But something happened to our country
    And we’re kinda blaming you

    We haven’t killed all the polar bears
    But it’s not for lack of trying
    The Earth is cracked
    Big Bird is sacked
    And the atmosphere is frying

    Congress went home early
    They did their best we know
    You can’t cut spending
    With elections pending
    Unless it’s welfare dough

    We’re the children of the future
    American through and through
    But something happened to our country
    And we’re kinda blaming you

    Find a park that is still open
    And take a breath of poison air
    They foreclosed your place
    To build a weapon in space
    But you can write off your au pair

    It’s a little awkward to tell you
    But you left us holding the bag
    When we look around
    The place is all dumbed down
    And the long term’s kind of a drag

    We’re the children of the future
    American through and through
    But something happened to our country
    And yeah, we’re blaming you

    You did your best
    You failed the test

    Mom and Dad
    We’re blaming you!

    I have always had a problem with Government schools using children to promote their agenda. Even before the electronic media age when schools would send kids home with pamphlets notifying parents on how they should vote on upcoming funding elections.

    What school was that shown in? I would like to send them a letter!
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    It's The Future Children Project they do political ads for the donkey party.

    This would be their their latest ad. Which is modestly disgusting and highly manipulative of young impressionable children.
    But, party politics is not my reason for posting it.

    My reason for posting it is the fact that public schools with a specific agenda are turning kids against their parents.

    They are slowly and incrementally attempting to strip parental authority away from the parents and to usurp that for themselves in order to control their thought processes to fit their agenda.

    If you get them when they are young enough you can shape and mold them into anything that you want them to be as they get older.

    I'm pretty sure this doesn't have much in common with what our children are being taught in school. A bit about who is behind this:
    Jeff Goodby | Strange Bedfellows — Politics News - seattlepi.com
    For some reason, this reminds of the time I switched political parties so I could vote for Hillary in the 2008 primary.

    I will agree with that somewhat. I will tell you a story I heard at college the other night that will tick you off (and most every other intelligent person).
    The class was full of teachers and students getting their education degree. I will make this short.
    We were talking about how far teachers should go in elementary school about the elections. I said the only thing the teachers should do is teach the Constitution, the elctoral process, and basic bio information about the candidates (B-day, college, jobs, family, ect...)
    One lady said that was their job becasue the PARENTS do not do it at home and the teachers were better at telling the students which candidate is better than the other. At this point my blood boiled.
    Another lady said at her school they have a mock election but the ballots are not secret. The teacher will look at them and then advise the child why they chose the wrong candidate. Ove 80 percent in the room thought that was a great idea.

    Thought you would appreciate that
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    I would much prefer horse whipping the anti-Americans who came up with such an idea.

    Stupid people. I am all for free thinking people, but do not get me started on educator responsibility. I find it inappropriate that educators would seek to influence children in any way that does not stay middle of the road and promote an agenda rather than teach information and how to be a good citizen. Anything more is just a pathetic attempt to influence children. Raising kids is a parents job, whether they do it or not is not up to us educators to fix the problem or influence it either. If a student wants my opinion I will give it to them, however I do not feel the classroom is the place for it.

    The example that suntzu gave unfortunately happens in many, many classrooms and schools in some form or fashion and it is sickening.
