How we got here.

Joe channels the history of the nanny-state and the Federal 'protection racket.'

It's the CONTEXT, not the CONTENT we take issue with.

Before you jump all over my case about my opposition to the President's address to the school kids because I've been calling for someone to finally stand up and admit that it's not the schools' fault our achievement is down, it's the student's responsibility to learn, and that's exactly what the President said. Look carefully into the mirror and honestly answer the following question: If George W. Bush asked kids across the United States to stop their lessons, watch him give them a private address and the write letters about; "how can I help the President" and; "why it's important that we listen to the President and our elected leaders," what would you have said? It's not his place, right. So we agree. Now you may listen....

President McCheese's "Lesson Plan"

Like the McDonald's marketing model ("Get the kids and they'll bring the adults.") the President of the United States will be bring his message of socialized medicine (and unicorns?) to the school children of the United States on Tuesday, September 8th, at noon. We've found the list of some extremely frightening lesson planning suggestions (e.g; Why is it important that we listen to the President and other elected officials?) and go throught it 'step-by-goose-step.'

Go here to view the actual list of 'suggested lessons' and find links to Central Virginia School districts.

Nothing ventured...

As we watch the government vilify business owners, when have THEY ever been out on the "suicceed-or-starve" ledge? Adds a whole new meaning to having 'skin-in-the-game.'
