This is spooky guys.. When we were house and dog sitting for the youngest we had the G-kids over to use the pool, and as part of a family BBQ.. (no greasy, but came out ok) ..

So the oldest who is 6 and going to school and i are taking a break and watching TV together, as we live so far away its a monthly thing to get together, and i really enjoy seeing her turning into a young lady. What was once a bunch of words that ran together, that i had no chance of understanding is now complete and well structured sentences, and she taps her little knuckles with mine when i say something that makes her laugh...(6 year olds are an easy room) ya know.

Spongebob is now Icarly on nickelodeon.. and I could see the way she was taking it in that she was picking up every word.. So i think ok, lets check this out...its geared for preteen audiences, .. Sure enough they pissed me off... Not 5 min into it.. they make a joke about FOX news.. a bunch of them are sitting around a school cafeteria table (this seems to be a common thread) and someone says something about being fair, and balanced.. so out comes this sarcasm at Fox... with a HUGE laugh track.. sure enough my little one laughs to..

This is geared (yeah i know im repeating myself) at preteens.. and only a way of getting them to think Fox, and the values normally on display at fox are wrong, and to be made fun of..

Pretty sad huh.. I watched the rest of the show, noting how many (near) sexual innuendos, and drug jokes were used.. Later im asking Gloria if we should say something to the daughter, the wife feels that nickelodeon is about as tame as it gets, and they dont have shows tailored for youngsters as we did.. (Mickey mouse, etc) .. I don't know guys, maybe its just geezer time on the MT... but I'm still upset with this...what right does a liberal have influencing a child..

Sorry this isn't up to my normal level of quotable prose.. got to get going, and just wanted to vent.. later to all..

It's not just T.V.,

Liberalism is rampant in the school system as well. You would be hard pressed to find a more conservative state than Utah but from my experience a large number of teachers project a liberal attitude to their students (on a daily basis). What is it about liberals and the teaching profession?

I've raised this question before to various people, including coworkers and social friends, and the most common answer was that teachers are more liberal because they're more educated (and from some people, that teachers are more intelligent).
The people I asked had education levels that ranged from PhD's (some with post Doctoral training) to those who never graduated from high school.
This would seem to indicate that my respondents thought that the more educated and aware one was, and the more intelligent one was, the greater the chances that one would be liberal.
Certainly one can point to people of high intellect who are conservative, but the people with whom I talked viewed these individuals as exceptions.

ecaman, I guess that

makes perfect sense. I had never thought of it that way as both of my parents were highly educated yet very conservative so I had never made a link between the two.

greg az I have a 2 year old and a 5 year old, we attempted to avoid anything that pertains to anything negative against conservative based beliefs. Any yes we are limited. Finding and downloading old cartoons is the best way to go.

it is the job of the parents to help a child mature and form opinions. This is the perfect case to explain how things are not how they always seem to be and how you should never just take in one side.

I have thought about this a lot, as you could tell the little 6 year old first grade mind was in hyper drive trying to emulate the shows character.. Frankly i didn't want to make to much of an issue (remember she's 6) and turn the proverbial 2 into a 10..

Guess in retrospect i could have simply said "thier FUCKING PINKO DICKHEADS sweetheart" .. laughing.. i can just see the daughter if i said that... Thinking "not everyone thinks Fox is silly honey" might be better..

The daughter by the way was a teacher before taking time off to raise the girls, and will go back to teaching in a few years..

Don't know about you guys, but it's been my experiance that academia is a bit out of step with the real world...That might be unfair when you can't even FIND a red pen much less use one, and you don't have the option of holding a child back due to underachievement..

How long do you suppose any of us would last (excluding Schuyler) as a teacher.. Oh, and Mike I'm a recovering ex Dem as well.. been years since i saw the light, but still have the occasional guilt feelings.. Anyway i can see it now if we were "retrained" as teachers..

Boys and Girls im proud to announce that this months teacher of the month award goes to Lyle.. Unfortunately Lyle isn't available to receive the award.. Something about a disturbance following the diversity training, but i understand he will be released to his own recognisance in the near future..

Ya'll stepped on a nerve guys.
I, Being from the buckle of the "bible belt", have seen a marked difference in what came from "educators" that taught me and who teach my children. The 6th grade teachers I had were far and away more conservative and patriotic than the pulpit preachers today. Yep, the liberals have stolen our future with the help of the government machine. Supreme Court being held to a higher standard, I find most guilty of liberal brainwashing!

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
