I feel like Rip Van Winkle. Grandkids in pre-school and grade school tell me they don't have Christmas party's, plays or even decorations in school any more They are having a holiday season party. They don't have Halloween party's or decorations either. Guess it's been this way for awhile.

Although it has been around for several years, this kind of crud has really gained steam lately. Happens to be in this morning's Washington Times (I've posted the link below.) Rules like "you can't say the word Christmas in class, but you can put up pictures of the Star of David or a Menorah" just frost me...or the 4th grade Mom helping out who was stopped from reading a Christmas story to the class. Not sure what happened to the first's been hijacked by the PC terrorists.

Thank ye, TP...Merry Christmas to you!

Afraid I'm usually "just over the line," must be why I was always so popular with my government bosses! :-)

I'm proud to say my daughter's school still celebrates Christmas and all the other holidays. They pray, say blessing before meals and say "One Nation Under God" also.

Someone on another board posted a link to an article about a school in NY that was forced to take down their decorations because it offended a few. I voted what I thought on that site and the votes at that time were 98.01% in favor of the decorations, 1.99% against.

Proud to say it's the same way up here too Nathan, how'd that 1.99% get what they wanted over the rest? It's just ridiculous the shape our governments have got in.

I was stunned this year when my Daughter started Kindergarten in the same grade school I wen to...lots of changes...BUT...They still said 'Under God', had a Halloween Parade in full costume, and are all decorated for Christmas...I had assumed that in this liberal, Civil Union, PC, town that all of that had been done away with...Not yet it seems...

My kids lost out on Halloween at school about 5 yrs ago they had a fall festival instead. They still do Christmas tho. I did get in a terrific discussion with one of their teachers after the youngest one (I think that she was 12 at the time) came home and told me what a plundering murdurous bustard Columbus was. While I did admit that he was all of those things but this PC liberal could'nt even bring herself to admit that he was nothing more than a man of his times and anything he did was considered normal and laudable be the standards of that era. Save us from the PC Police

DeadCarp - dang bogus claims    Posted 12-19-2002 at 19:59:08       [Reply]  [No Email]
What peeves me is those exaggerations they like to print: I read in one rag that "The average pencil will make a line 35 miles long" Well, me being the curious type, yesterday i managed to gather 3 pencils from around the place, sharpened them up and got a piece of paper. Wasn't sure about the details, so i put everything on the table on the front porch, to kinda give them a head start, you know? Sat there with my jacket on, watched them til i got bored and nuthin had happened yet. Stoked the stove and they still hadn't made a move. This morning on the way back from the cafe i noticed there were only 2 pencils and the paper left. Now i looked around pretty good, didn't seem like the wind blew it down, no lines across the yard or anything, couldn't verify a dang thing! (My best guess is that somebody borrowed the pencil - pretty clever ay?)
Even if it IS making its line, there's not much point in searching further - the thing could be halfway to Browerville by now. So i have a new headline of my own - either i have 2 VERY unusual pencils, or "The average pencil can't get halfway across a piece of paper without help!"
