Talking about taxes. . .

Speech by Dennis Prager of Colorado
We watched high school
principal Dennis Prager of Colorado, along with Sara Palin and Tom
Brokaw on TV a couple of weeks ago....what a dynamic, down to earth
speaker. Even though Palin and Brokaw were also guest speakers, they
did little but nod and agree with him.
This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America , one of its three central values -- e pluribus Unum, "from many, one." And this school will be guided by America 's values. This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.
Your clubs will be
based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other
physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism -- an
unhealthy preoccupation with the self -- while the purpose of
education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have
clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music,
astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more.
If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being
interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity,
that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.
