If any other ’cause’ said “if they can honor military, then WE want to honor….(fill in the blank)…” my response would be ‘NO, that is OUR AMERICAN MILITARY, OUR FALLEN HEROES…..YOU GO DO YOUR OWN HONORING…BUT NOT HERE.'”

    Sure, “let’s destroy our history then we don’t have to honor anybody…after all, who the heck ARE they and why do they deserve anything special” right?
    bocopro, we’re a sicker country than I thought.

    Imagine denying kids the FIRST HUNDRED YEARS? THOSE FORMATIVE, IMPORTANT, ‘HOW WE MANAGED TO START THIS GREAT COUNTRY’ information not being taught?


  2. geeez2014 says:

    bocopro, what the heck are those two last paragraphs? It reads like the lefty profs do NOT want the first 100 years cut out and FreeRepublic (which I’m surprised you read, by the way!) is blaming the Republicans for having done so???


  3. bocopro says:

    Freepers are actually not on my reading list or my “favorites” stack, but quite often when I get wind of something like this and Google it, I wind up there. Heck, sometimes even HuffPo and CNN get it right and post a link or an article without beating the reader to death with editorializing.

    Sometimes, tho, many sites get in such a hurry to get something out that they don’t write it up very clearly.

    The one I’ve lost all faith in is WND, or as some call it “WingNutDaily.” They blow stuff out of proportion and don’t seem to corroborate adequately and often come across as conspiracy nuts. If I can’t find more than a couple of unrelated sites reporting the same incident in basically the same terms, I tend to discount the item entirely.

    I don’t know why this would be approved. It would not be ‘fair’ to let someone honor some who gave their lives for our country and then have to say no to a lot of others who don’t honor our country or might honor some other country. It certainly wouldn’t be ‘fair’ to make the school administrators make a decision that might be ‘unfair’ to someone.
    You see, by saying no to this they are really being ‘fair’ and that is most important to teach our youngsters.
    Makes you kind of proud what we are doing in our schools now doesn’t it?
    Or, like me, it makes me sick!


  5. geeez2014 says:

    bocopro, I think I heard Medved yesterday call it Word NUT DAily!! That’s a bad one…its’ owner, Joseph Farrah, once popped up here and let me have it about something I’d written! I showed he was wrong and he disappeared again 🙂

    Geezer….I’m afraid I’m with YOU: IT MAKES ME SICK!! Thanks for coming by.


  6. Time for a recall of the school board.
    Sounds like motivation to me.
    I’d kick in a couple bucks.


  7. geeez2014 says:

    so bocopro, did I misread the link? See my second comment down…??


  8. geeez2014 says:

    Ed, me, too…you’re so right.


  9. John M. Berger says:

    It’s getting to the point that I’m no longer proud to say that I live in Colorado! There was a time that this nonsense would only be found in Boulder. Liberalism is metastasizing here, big time!


  10. bocopro says:

    Well, Jones does a lot of talking about resetting standards and objectives, which always goes on in acadaemia for some reason related to adding additional coats of lacquer to rice bowls, and eventually winds up saying that he’s in favor of more emphasis on investigation and analysis, critical thinking, and communications.

    Then he tells the work group to remove his name from the project report recommendations because he doesn’t want to be associated with kids who aren’t trained in high school to use research sources, analyze data, detect bias, and make sound decisions. Even the common-core supporters don’t like some of the proposed new standards.

    All I can say is that we’re clearly not getting the whole story here somehow. That bit about reading the minds of the “Republican-dominated state gubmint” is almost a non-sequitur, cryptic and perplexing at best, like a football bat carried by the tennis cops at Augusta National in January or somethin.

    As a fellow Coloradoan, I must share John M. Berger’s lament.

    Welcome to Obama’s America.


  12. Kid says:

    This is eaxactly why schools need to be extremely locally controlled. Sure, in some places the parents still would not participate but I think that would be the exception and the minority by a wide margin.

    Bottom line – Parents have Jack Nothing influence on public schools. They are treated with zero respect. It’s time the school administrators feared the parents. Same with the government – it’s time the government feared the population. Both cases are at their lowest points in regard to the advantage of we the people. Makes me sick.

    Jimmy Carter and the Democrats are responsible for the schools.


  13. geeez2014 says:

    John and SF……just try being a CALIFORNIAN and a Conservative blogger. You will notice I have NEVER done a post on California….the piling on is FAR WORSE on me than anything I’ve seen about Colorado, TRUST ME 🙂

    bocopro…that’s what confused ME…. as if a “Republican-dominated state gubmint” would write off 100 years of American history?: NO WAY
    A friend asked me to Google American history books because he knew I was TRULY BUGGED by the history books at our school and I could find NOTHING that was totally UNBIASED.

    He’s creating now a course not based on a textbook but on information he writes and presents, with videos on wars, etc., which are unbiased. HALLELUJAH for him!! he’s a great teacher.

    Bocopro…check this out; I was thumbing thru a history book at the school I’m associated with and was reading about the WPA and CCC, etc., when out of the blue, TOTALLY gratuitously, is something like this “the WPA camps, which were segregated, had beds and bathrooms but little else.” I remember that “SEGREGATED” jumped out at me because it was absolutely not what was in that chapter…no racism, NOTHING. See what I mean? This STINKS. and it’s STUPID.

    What we all have to realize is they don’t have time for American History when they’ve got to squish in classes on THE ENVIRONMENT and SEXuALITY and AMERICAN IMPERIALISM….just no time left, ya know?!


  14. John M. Berger says:


    I just discovered that in the basement of the town house adjacent to mine there is a marijuana farm that is perfectly legal here. Apparently local law enforcement has given it their blessing. Just don’t get caught smoking a regular cigarette in a neighborhood bar* anywhere in Colorado or you will be in deep $#!t !!! Yes, I know smoking is bad unless, of course, it’s pot.

    * It doesn’t even matter if 100% of the patrons and employees want to smoke inside all must go outside, even if it’s 10 degrees below zero.


  15. Kid says:

    @JMB, Maryjane is being legalized because the cops/legal system spend way more money on it than they get out of it. It’s all about the money. Same thing happens with Coke someday?, Coke will become legalized. Most other drugs too.

    I do believe drugs were and are brought in by the feds. $$$


  16. Mustang says:
    School districts are government entities and therefore run by lawyers and idiots (although there may be very little distinction between the two). I fully understand Russell’s position here, but we somehow have to get away from every little thing being a crisis that demands national attention and fifteen minutes on Faux News. My question would be, if the school district cannot spend Title One funds on jerseys, then why not go to the boosters and have flags made with the embroidered names of fallen military personnel from that school district? First, problem solved and we honor our fallen heroes. Second, we avoid causing bedwetting bureaucrats to throw themselves out of four story windows.


  17. geeez2014 says:

    Mustang! “School districts are government entities and therefore run by lawyers and idiots” Brilliant…well said. I think way too much time IS spent on ridiculous stuff like this, but I also think we need to stop the constant drip, drip, drip of America losing its grip….particularly in honoring heroes.

    Silverfiddle…we have so many kids walking around who talk like stoners…..hats backwards on their heads, pants around their knees………’hey, maaaan..’ “Gee, I wonder if HE smokes!”
    What a hideous situation.. I seriously don’t get what you’re saying about pot and $$$…I don’t get how the government would benefit from it..HOW?

    JMB…insane, totally INSANE. Great point about regular cigarettes suddenly being worse than POT. ridiculous


  18. baysider says:

    I like Mustang’s solution. When I saw the ‘rule’ they cited, I did not react as strongly as thou. I can see a good reason to identify the player clearly. But I can easily see a workaround in smaller letters, different color. THIS is really the problem: “it would open the door to similar requests from other causes.” And my answer to that is “so what?” Where did you put your backbone?


  19. geeez2014 says:

    exactly, Baysider…that was half my post…. as I said: ‘NO, that is OUR AMERICAN MILITARY, OUR FALLEN HEROES…..YOU GO DO YOUR OWN HONORING…BUT NOT HERE.’”
    That’s the rub..and that would have shown “backbone”, right?…..we don’t care about other causes, this is an America hero.


  20. John M. Berger says:

    I didn’t mean to veer off-topic but just to site an example of how the irrational Liberal mentality (oxymoron) has infected our state to the point of defying Federal Law and the Constitution. You can expect more of the nonsense, exposed in the subject of this post, as the “Centennial State” continues to suffer from epidemic Liberalitis!


  21. geeez2014 says:

    JMB….I welcome Off Topics when they tie in even a little OR are interesting in and of themselves!…..I thought you made some good points on this post. Thanks!


  22. jerrydablade says:

    Wow. Schools at every level have been taken over by the whackkos. I imagine the principal with a goatee and wearing a Che Guevara TShirt.


  23. cube says:

    Few go against the monolithic progressive/liberal juggernaut, not only because they lack a backbone, but because they don’t have the money to stand up to organizations like the ACLU. What we need is an anti-ACLU… a bizarro ACLU, so to speak, that is equally funded and will stand toe-to-toe against the progs. Maybe then you’ll see some backbone.

    I understand both sides, so how do you feel about wrist bands?
