    Interestingly enough, you seemed to object to the "biased" textbooks used in Texas, but have no problem with the "biased" textbooks used in AZ. Why is that?

    We already know how "scared" this one is with all those dangerous "incitements to violence" he perceives under everything from his bed outwards.

    God forbid americans learn about the exterminations of "native americans," the racism that african americans were forced to endure, etc.

    Let's cleanse our history and not let our kids know that some of the things this country did were not cool at all.

Call it by any name you want, but it is really just plain old Communism, disguised by feigned patriotism, and wrapped in the flag. Founding fathers be damned.
    Thanks Danarhea. I wish Barry Goldwater was alive to see this crap that is going on in our State.

    No really, what are you reading? "you guys?" No, there is no racial tone in this response.

    These laws are meant to quiet minorities.

    So, what do you want taught at public schools? Honest question, should kids learn about the crap that happen in the south or the extermination of native americans or the internment of japenese? Or, it this stuff not for our kids?

    Here is a suggestion, lets teach history like it really happened. Lets give both sides. Hey it's the truth, then no one can gripe.

    No they are not. They are meant to unify a society.

    Okay, I respect the response. So, do you in your opinion mention the crap that has happened in this country? Or, do you support hiding and sanitizing it?
