From the Cradle to the Grave...
The Democrats have discovered why they have been losing voter for the last ten years or so.
It's that long lag between birth and the beginning of kindergarten, when proper Teacher Union indoctrination can begin. Until then, little ones are susceptible to the ideas and values of their retrograde parents. Now, the Democrats can begin to change all that with the new preschool picture book, Why Mommy is a Democrat (web site HERE).
Porcupine has been reading the web site, and is considering writing his own book. Below are the lines from the sample pages on the web site:
Democrats see to it that all toys are shared, just like Mommy does.
Porcupine's Version: Republican Mommy teaches you not to be concerned about the toys that other people have, but do you best, work hard and save up to buy your own toys, that you can be proud of because they are your own. Until a Democrat Mommy comes and takes some away from you to give to her own lazy children.
Democrats make sure we are always safe, just like Mommy does.
Porcupine's Version: Republican Mommy teaches you the best way to take care of yourself, so you will not have to rely on others to protect you - not even Mommy.
Democrats make sure children can go to school, just like Mommy does.
Porcupine's Version: Republican Mommy makes sure that when you get to school, you can speak your own mind and not have to say back to Teachers what they want to hear if you don't want to, and get a grade based on your work and not your ideas.
Porcupine is dismayed that such very young children are being indoctrinated with a Big Government mindset. "A marvelous and child-friendly introduction to the values of Democrats", gushes Air America's Thom Hartmann. Mr. Hartmann left out the part where the liberal radio network steals $875,000 from the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club in Brooklyn in order to keep their failing ideas on the air. Now that's child-friendly journalism!
This takes a 28 page book full of "non-judgmental" language, designed to take "subtle and not so subtle humorous swipes at the Bush Administration and the Republican Party"? Can they not even explain to children what their principles are without denigrating the ideas and beliefs of others (using non-judgmental language, of course)?
Porcupine offers the comic strip below as his own 'humourous swipe' and hopes that in twenty years, we don't have whining squirrels running our government.
