    The 16 yo slave was telling me about the "Earth Day" one hour assembly he had attended at school yesterday.

    ***Understand that I certainly take whatever 16 yo slaves tell me with a grain of salt.***

    Anyway, through his customary half-incoherent rambling, and mumbling, and poorly contructed sentences, I was able to distill that among the Student Body there was widespread:

    1. Disbelief that "Global Warming" was real.

    2. Hatred for President Obama with many birds flying from the audience when his picture was shown.

    This is particularly significant given that the school is located in one of the most liberally democratic counties in the country.

    I'm adding this to my own gathering data points that do not bode well for liberal democrats in November.

    But what do ya'll think of haveing "Earth Day Assemblies" to promote environmental views of global warming with your tax dollars?

    Why don't we just cut to the Two Minutes Hate and be done with it?

    Earth Day is not (or was not) linked to Global Warming, but rather is meant to promote awareness of the Earth and the environment.

    Earth Day is not political.

    Are you against Earth Day? Are you one of those pro-littering people?

    Personnaly, I like The Earth.

    I also like that Starbucks is doing a promo for Eathday: Bring in your own mug and get free coffee.

    As I said, I'm reluctant to believe anything that 16 yo says since all teenages are insane to a greater or lesser degree, but the Earth Day Assembly seemed very political (included a pic of Barak Hussein).

    Was the pic of Baraq Hussein el-Obama really huge like Dude's picture?

    Or was it just a picture of him planting a tree that was part of a PowerPoint slideshow?

    With Earf Day being taught in gubmint schools, given the current state of affairs with the "education" system, it can't help but be political.

    I'll ask, and get back to you, but I expect the answer will be something like this:

    Me: I want to ask you something about the Eath Day Assembly
    Slave: Um
    Me: Tell me about the picture of President Obama
    Slave: Who?
    Me: PRESIDENT OBAMA, of the USA.
    Slave: yeah, he is
    ME: YES, I KNOW, FOR CHRISTSSAKES.
    Slave: So?
    ME: Tell me about the picture of President Obama
    Slave: What Picture?
    Me: :eek:

    ......well, you see how long this is gonna take, and can imagine the quality of information.

    Don't litter. Plant a tree. Turn off the lights. Take a shorter shower.

    Political?

    What would the opposition say?

    Nag, nag, nag, nag, nag, nag has nothing to do with reading, writing and arithmetic.

    It's basically all political...Your Hegelian model here pretty much proves it.

    So technically you aren't even sure if there was an Earth Day assembly at all. It might have just been a school pride pep rally.
