    I got an email about this today and thought I would easily disprove it. I have friends who send me stuff and ask if it's for real. People this is for real. Here is a disclaimer copied from a book being sold on Amazon:

    "2008 Wilder Publications

    This book is a product of it's time and does not reflect the same values
    as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with
    their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and
    interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before
    allowing them to read this classic work."

    The name of the book?

    The Constitution
    The Declaration of Independence and
    The Articles of Confederation


    Now I understand that yes we have changed the way we think about many things, but this is taught in History classes. Anyone who wants to warn my kids about the Constitution of the United States won't see any dollars from my wallet.

    Oh and here is the page on Amazon:

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1604592680/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=077MYD1W49ZTBZA9J4PH&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846#reader_1604592680]Amazon.com: The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation (9781604592689): Books[/ame]

    Read it for yourself. I still can't believe it.

    I had to read this in grade school, without the warning. I thought it was boring back then, but it didn't send me screaming because it was radical.

    See? what you are missing is the soros blame america first, anti american marxists don't give a shit about the constitution.. it's all about destroying America.. what part of "We are on the verge of fundamentally changing the United States of America" don't you understand.. with all due respect?

    The changes to the Texas schoolbooks is more disturbing than a simple warning on the Constitution.

    Is there a warning from Napolitano that it might inspire domestic terrorism?

    I will be writing to this publisher, and to Amazon; If a cool down enough to compose the letter without going off on them. They never understand it unless everything is PC these days, you have to sound nice, and show them that you understand it isn't their fault and all that horseshit.
