    Next step will be pulling and burning the books from their libraries that use any of those "offensive" words. I'm convinced that these educrats running our public school systems, doing everything they can to rewrite our history and values, are one of the biggest dangers we as a people face.

    And there are people who will still send their children to the "wolves".

    I graduated from public school in 1973, KNEW then that when I had kids, they would never attend one! They never did. It was a finical burden but I and the wife made the sacrifice so it would happen. My kids came out better for it.

    It will be a struggle for them and our grandkid's, but we will help out as much as possible. Its to important to keep the "wolves" at bay!!

    Liberals hate the Constitution, so the First is as bad as the Second one to them.

    They should be made to remove "education" from their label and replace it with "Indoctrinators" LETS be correct in titling departments!!

    The public schools are where the subversion of America started. Certain ethnicities which were enamored with communism constituted the bulk of the "teachers" from the 1940s through today. Their intellectual "get" are the college professors who are poluting our educational environment to this day.

    An example,; Georgetown, once a respected Jesuit university now has a pig named Dyson working as a professor. Also, Sandra Fluke, that sexually active whore is a Georgetown "student" who would have been kicked out back in the 1950s for embarassing the school. Now Georgetown, like so many formerly great universities, is a pigsty which would not be missed if it disappeared.

    Political correctness has banned from many schools one of the earliest books that contained a message against slavery - Huckleberry Finn. This is because politically correct boobs focused on a word and not the message. What irony.

    The country is dividing itself. If you like big government, killing babies and homosexuality, not to mention having every move and thought approved you will be happy to be a Prius driving city living liberal puke.

    If not, stock up on ammo.

    Well with all those words on a ban list that means that 3/4 of the school books will have to be removed. What the hell are the kids suppose to read then? Lib A.H's.
