There ought to be a law?
Here's a little article I came across while checking out a pro cop magazine site. What do you think?
There Ought To Be A Law
Reports from survey firms, research foundations, government agencies and schools tell us most young people in the US don’t read literature, work reliably, visit cultural institutions or even vote. They don’t know anything about the foundations of America from a historical perspective or the names their political representatives. In a 2006 survey of high school seniors, when asked to explain a sign reading “Colored Entrance” surveyors were met with blank stares and slack jaws from two-thirds of “America’s greatest assets.” In a 2004 survey one quarter of young adults (18 to 24) had no idea who Dick Cheney was and 28 percent were clueless when it came to the name William Rehnquist.
However they are spectacular when it comes to texting, passing along tunes and gossiping with, at times, particularly unflattering and scandalous photos via “Social Networking” sites. They are consumed and driven with a need for peer attention.
How in the world can you think critically or have an abstract thought about essential rights in the US if you’ve never read the Constitution and have no idea of the significance of the First Amendment— or my favorite — the Second Amendment? For a free people to remain free historical memory is essential.
The biggest problem here is these people have the right to vote unabated for whom ever has a nice smile, cool suit, talks really well, has cute kids or a really rad viral clip on You Tube — that is if they were able to understand a simple ballot.
So, there ought to be a law. We need to amend the 15th Amendment and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. You need to pass a test in order to vote.
We can call the new amendment the You Can’t Polish A Turd By Rubbing It On An Imbecile, Meaningful Voting Rights Protection Act of 2009. If you’re with me on this send a copy to your Representatives. If you are reading this magazine there’s no doubt you know who they are. Here’s are my suggested test questions:
Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me
We are who we choose to be.

It makes one wonder what they are teaching in the schools these days. Or are they teaching anything at all? When I was in school, American Government and Civics were required classes, I believe. Now its push the kids through the system. Heaven forbid if poor Johnny or Mary has to be held back because they failed a grade. "Oh no, we can't do that. It will ruin their social status." Sadly, I believe the far left has a hold of the school system in this country and is using it as a means of controlling the masses.
