A good quote

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be lighted." --

Keep that quote in mind when reviewing what the school system is doing to the children or the entrenched media is also doing to the children.

It is far better for the world to have inquisitive minds fueled with the excitement of discovery than bored minds who can barely remember who George Washington was while watching MTV.

I'm afraid that with the modern children, the mind is a bowl to be filled with mush. There are no absolutes these days, our history is being re-written, even our language has no meaning..."depends on what your definition of 'is' is".Even the sciences are being polluted.....as can be seen in the dreaded "GLOBAL WARMING". The hippy mentality of the 60's and the 70's has taken over and our children are the result. "Let's just sit on our asses and play video games and listen to our iPODS and let someone else do it". It's time for the great meteor or possibly the avian flu pandemic to wipe out civilization and start over with the roaches. How could it be worse?

Are you about to suggest this is something akin to the Twilight of Humanity? That the Fenris wolf has been released as Yggrsil topples?

Only if we give up will it happen. Lets not give up shall we? Did Leonidas give up? Or General McCaulif at Bastonge? Nope.

Anna, I didn't say anything about giving up, wouldn't give the bastards the satisfaction. What I am saying is that from my old age perspective, I see the world going totally insane. There is no right or wrong anymore, just what "feels good". The old moral standards no longer count. There is no more respect for others. We seem to be going back to the law of the jungle attitude.

We have 9 year olds stabbing their friends over a rubber ball; the family does not exist in many of our cities, just watch the Maury Povich (Jerry Springer clone) some times when they have women on there naming 16, 17, 18 or more men who MIGHT be the father of their child or children and then breaking down when the DNA says no to the latest perspective "father". Good Lord Almighty, what do these women do, fornicate 24 hours a day with uncounted sperm donors?

Education is no longer a goal to be achieved and taught, rather it has become a baby sitting operation and a propaganda outlet for the uber liberals.

My father used to tell us that he hoped that he was dead before my generation took over ruling the country. Dad, you died too soon, you should see what the generation coming up looks like, God help us!!
