Protest in CO

Students at Colo. High School Protest Bush

Here's my favorite snippet...

"We want them to reassure us that our fears are misguided and that the government is doing everything in its power to prevent our futures from being destroyed," said senior Brian Martens, who wore a hand-lettered T-shirt which said he was the "senior executive of the subcommittee on protesting stuff."

Students said they are not protesting the election, but are worried about the national debt, military recruitment in schools and the environment.

Senior executive of the subcommittee on protesting stuff? Sounds like a government job may be in this young man's future. Brian, I'll tell you now, your fears aren't misguided, you are misguided. Misguided by your government teachers who are at odds with the current government. Now just remeber, as I pick apart your worries, you really aren't the one to blame. The teachers who did this to you are.

Worried about the national debt. Yes, I can understand that, but honestly with the economy rebounding like it is I am not in panic mode. Honestly, is this really about the national debt, or are you trying to impress that earth muffin with the hairy legs?

Military recruitment in schools. What's wrong with that? I went to a high school that sends over 90% of graduates on to college and they still recruited and my high school. Why such the deep seated hate for the military Brian? Maybe it would be good for you to see the world and help say, 50 million people from living under an oppresive regime. Yes, 50 million, didn't your government teachers tell you about the torture rooms? Of course protesting the slaughter of people isn't worthy is it, but god forbid if it were a bunch of animals huh?

The environment, I'm sure the earth muffins in your class get their hairy thighs wet over this. Let's face some facts Brian. I've been to Colorado, it's beautiful. And caring about it isn't a bad thing. Sitting on your ass and bitching about it is. When's the last time you picked up trash on the side of the road? Planted a tree?

Now, get off your ass, go to class, and shut your mouth. The adults have business to discuss.
