About schools and reading between the lines
To the Editor:
Please don't let these words fall on deaf ears or bounce of a heart of stone.
Today's schools have been removed from the original foundation that the men who established this nation had set in place.
The women and men who are trying to place our schools back to the golden age of learning, are being ridiculed, scoffed at or beaten senseless. Schools in this nation have become a place where parents, teachers and the men and women on the school board alike, put blindfolds over their eyes and hide behind a thick wall of lies.
Their lies, in a way, have been forced into our minds. They mingle with our blood and have infiltrated the American heart and soul. "What are these lies?" many people would ask? One is the way we treat the definition of the word tolerance.
The definition of the word "tolerance" is "to respect one's beliefs and ways," though when tolerance is abused in this nation not much is done about it because the abusers have quite a good chokehold on the American people.
If anybody can tell me one time when somebody not from North America came to the United States legally, walked into a business after learning our laws and rules, demanded a job, the manager says, "I'm sorry, but we're not hiring right now." What do you think will happen or what does happen after that same person, who demanded a job, files a lawsuit and takes that company to court for discrimination charges.
It doesn't matter if that person was discriminated or not, the American company has to pay that person the money, he claims he is "owned" by them. The strange thing is, why does our judicial system favor a forgiving voice over an American voice?
Food for thought, another lie are the two words "politically incorrect." This word combination is much like an oxie moron. Their definitions, which can be found in every Webster's dictionary, shows that they don't fit.
The word politics means, "the science and art of government." So read in between the lines here; don't just read the bold print. These two words together mean, "the science and art of government is incorrect."
If you look at these words from this perspective, you will see why I say this. Boil down those fancy words that politicians use to their bare meaning, and then try to decide if what you found they were saying or what they wanted you to hear is the truth.
Just these two lies are some of the biggest bases of the new foundation our government is trying to place our school on. Others include "separation of church and state," teaching evolution over Christianity in schools, because we don't want to offend anyone.
All these lies are hollow and nothing but ash at their core and they're all worth their weight in crap. I will say thank you and good bye in this rendition of the last line of the Declaration of Independence. "For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of devine providence, I mutally pledge my life, my fortunes and my sacred honor."
