Peter, no offense, but shouldn't you be on a park bench somewhere, feeding the pigeons?

He claims to have never been on meds before.
He sure as hell needs to be taking mega-doses of anti-psychotics such as Haldol for a start.

Back on topic, here http://www.humanevents.com/2011/06/...own-of-america/ is an interesting read.

Also, from the Communist Manifesto by Karl the Kook is this gem:

"10. Free education for all children in public schools."

The problem with the first article, and it's a serious one, is that the conclusion drawn at the end isn't supported by the information provided above it. The only obvious conclusion is that we need to do something about the history curriculum, one that is constantly being held hostage to both left and right agendas and is heavily influenced by the textbook wars.

The right claims the field is dominated by the left and tries to change things through political means including threats. The left is hampered by having to defend special studies programs. Then there are the total kooks who want certain events eliminated from teaching all the way to the lost cause nut cases who keep trying to rewrite the history of slavery, the Civil War and reconstruction.

This will only be corrected when the current paroxysm of periodic right wing rhetoric burns itself out as it has always done in the country's history.
