    McLeroy overthrown




    Don McLeroy , who worked to provide Texas and the nation with unbiased school books has been overthrown in a left-wing coup d'้tat .


    McLeroy and the conservative half of the Board questioned certain questionable "facts" that were being placed in school books.(as is their job)

    Since Texas is the largest purchaser of school books, nation-wide book writers tailor school books to the Texas requirments.


    McLeroy questioned American school books referring to America as "Imperialist" which they replaced with "Expansionist"
    The books referred to America's early involvment in WW1 as "Propaganda".
    McLeroy and the Board also removed descriptions of America as being "Capitalist"

    The biggest controversy was questioning some teachings about Evolution and adding suggestions of Creationism.



    In a disturbing statement by one of McLeroy's organized opponents, she said that
    "Those are the facts that kids are going to need if they are going to be successful in college"

    McLeroy served on the board for 12 years.
    He served in the military.
    He is a dentist.
    He volunteers with Boyscouts of America, Gideons International, and he is a Sunday school teacher.

    In a phony election he lost to Thomas Ratliff, who is a lobbyist.
    Ratliff says he is a Christian who doesn't mind children being taught Evolution.

    The phony election results were he received 57,528 votes (49.6 percent) to Ratliff's 58,388 (50.4 percent).

    Man! you just missed it!
    ...so close.
    ( the closer the election results, the more credible they seem)

    they say there won't be any new changes for another 10 years

    Well you know the old saying "**** floats to the top". Apparently it happened again in that "close" election. Thank you very much

    yeah , that's why the country is going down the drain, because of a heavy resurgence in religion.




    everywhere you go, people be religious

    Here are some other changes this dentist who also believes the Earth is 6000 years old wants.
    Thomas Jefferson deserves to be erased from a list of "great Americans", but Ronald Reagan doesn't. And we should re-evaluate Senator Joe McCarthy: he was almost certainly a national hero lol.
    The school board's decrees range from the surreal to the faintly sinister. One dictates that the Republican former House speaker Newt Gingrich should be studied. Another says that the speeches of Jefferson Davis, the slave-owning president of the Confederacy, should be taught alongside those of Abraham Lincoln.
    Jefferson's importance to the nation's founding fathers will in future be played down. That change to the curriculum was supported by evangelical Christians, who dislike Jefferson's support for the separation of church and state. A dentist called Roy McElroy, failed by a whisker last year to get the board to force the teaching of Creationism alongside evolution in science lessons.
    This year he supported a successful move to have the term "capitalism" replaced with "free market enterprise" in classes.

    I knew I shouldn't have included that lol. I guess your pickup truck is important too. I am taking this as you agree with the rest of my statement.
    Even if Hip Hop is negative it is as important as country and western music.

    Actually, I am in to Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, and Green Day. My post was a tad cynical.

    I see nothing wrong with studying Jeff Davis or Newt as long as it is in context. Davis had his place in history, be it good or bad. I loved history classes. I think an entire class devoted to the presidency would be cool.

    Have seen U2 four times. The last time, my wife and I manned the info and signup table for Amnesty International. Also like Green Day and Chili Peppers are ok too.

    most people in America think "separation of church and state" is in our Constitution, which it is not.

    the left-wing have been over-playing Jefferson's words for years because they want a wall to keep religion out.

    ironically, they don't care about Jefferson's views on liberty
