    Oh marvelous. Why stop there? Why don't we just rewrite the whole damn thing. Get George Lucas, or Stephen Spielberg to ghost-write it, add some robots, some space battles, what the ****, right? This is asinine.

    I doubt seriously that the majority of those in the Tea Party endorse this idea.

    History is what it is. and it was corrected in the Civil War, much like the New Testament corrected some things in the Old Testament.

    Our founding Fathers were working from a pretty much blank slate. and things were as they were at the time, and slavery was not just a practice here at the time.

    Slavery was once widespread around the world and keep in mind that the Slavers in Africa were often black.

    So tell it like it was, and explain what happened.

    Never fear History or the truth.


    To hide it or attempt to rewrite is where you can go very wrong.

    I say we tell them we're changing the books, and their reward their patriotism with some lovely bed blankets and pillowcases.

    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    And what is here wrong?
