Patriotism and the 4th

   Political opportunists have since 9/11 questioned the patriotism of anyone that does not agree with them. To suggest that any American is not patriotic because they do not share the opinions of those who would enlarge our boards is in it’s self un-American. Far too many have been duped by these fear mongers because their own knowledge of our roots is weak. When the Declaration of Independence was put into today’s language and shown to the public many thought it to be the writing of Karl Marx. In this video animated characters recite the Declaration of Independence. See if you recognize it and pass it on to family and friends, asking them if it sounds familiar to them.

    The fact that so many people can't recognize the Declaration of Independence is a tribute to what Conservative policies have done to the public school system.

    It's more like all the PC garbage that the schools have to teach instead of the basics. It's all those liberal policies that have destroyed the public school system. Maybe if you removed all of those policies and allowed God back in, the schools would improve.

    Blondie, you got that all wrong. It started back when Reagan cut a lot of the funding when made schools drop classes in things like Civics. Then came Bush 2 with his “Leave no Child behind” and all the schools had to start teaching for a test. Kids weren't taught history or civics, all they were taught were the answers to be able to pass the test. Personally I don't see why you would object to a respectful atmosphere, I think it's a good thing to teach our kids not to hate.

    Sorry, but short term pain is necessary to save the body from death. Keynesianism is a denial of necessary economic cycles (whether made worse by political action or not) in favor of short term political gain. So I would work on the serious structural deficiencies of Western economics (America's is clearly not sustainable at all) rather than vainly trying to paper over the symptoms. Put money into rebuilding a decaying American infrastructure for one (over half of our bridges here are marginal). All else is pandering to voters, buying their votes (if populist rather than corporate) in the most crass way.JN0-531 exam | SY0-201 exam | CISSP exam
