“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Oreo's, now on the banned list


The conservative side of the blogosphere has its collective panties in a bunch this afternoon because some sixth grade teacher in Pennsylvania sent a permission slip home because she wanted to give each student one Oreo cookie to demonstrate plate-tectonics.....I'm guessing by sliding the two cookies, representing tectonic plates, around on the "stuff" which represents the magma upon which tectonic plates ride. Perhaps the public school policy didn't allow the consumption of any food that didn't meet Michelle Obama's approval, without parents' permission.

Sure, it's ridiculous to go through the trouble of a permission slip for one stupid cookie, but what alarms me more is the necessity to demonstrate to apparently imbecilic 6th graders(12-13 year old's) the relatively simple concept of tectonic plate movement with a cookie.

No wonder every modern, industrialized nation is burying our students academically. We treat our delicate, snowflake students like they're learning disabled with kindergarten demonstrations of science phenomena using desert snacks.
