and now with the zero tolerance environments and school controlling more and more of students lives ... it's only getting worse.
bitching that a school might have the audacity to teach patriotism as a "positive" makes me laugh, though..
people would throw an absolute ****fit if they were availed to the evil ways we were taught in my day... when patriotism and civic duty were the top priorities in school( citizenship was part of our grades)..... lefties would start cutting themselves if they had to live though that sort of heinous ****.
People have just created jobs where decision making is a requirement of the job so they work their asses off to create policies that take their job responsibilities away. So they can just show up just to collect a paycheck.
The whole teaching patriotism bit does make my skin crawl though. Because it's extremely subjective. One guys' patriotism is rebellion while another is absolute obedience to authority.
LOL .... another over-reaction from someone who didn't actually bother to investigate.
They do not 'teach' patriotism ... they teach truths that 'promote' patriotism. Read the report ... it actually enhances students' access to historical facts.
Now, your skin won't crawl ...
We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.
