The Unreality of the "Reality" being Taught in Our American Schools

Is Ron Paul Running For President? The Unreality of the "Reality" being Taught in Our American Schools

Today I walked into a classroom where I was substitute teaching. It was a study hall class so the teacher who usually teaches in that classroom was at her desk. I took off my coat, took attendance and the children studied. I looked around and on a board across the room was a chart of the Presidential Candidates separated by party and attached to their picture was a sticky note with the number of delegates they had won. Ron Paul was not on the board. I walked up to the teacher, this teacher of "History and Government", and I said "Excuse me, but there is a Presidential Candidate missing on the Republican side of your board." And she looked at me and said "I have to teach reality to these kids and that's not reality". She dismissed me with her eyes and I must have looked awfully funny at that moment because I'm sure all the blood in my body had risen to my face. I sat down. I zipped my mouth out of respect for the classroom setting and the children in the classroom.; I zipped my mouth for the time being but I'm opening it now.....Reality? Who is this woman to decide the REALITY being taught to our children? Reality is that Ron Paul has 94,906 Meet-Up members running a grassroots campaign in 1,598 meet-ups in 1,185 Cities (http://ronpaul.meetup.com/). You go and tell those 94,906 people, Mrs. History Teacher, that they don't count! Reality is that though Ron Paul came in last place in Florida yesterday, 60,000 people voted for him. You go, Mrs. History Teacher and tell those 60,000 people that they are not important! Reality is that Ron Paul came in 2nd place in Nevada. He came in 2nd place in Louisiana and has acquired 6 delegates, 5 more than Rudy who was ON YOUR BOARD! You go tell all those people who voted for Ron Paul, Mrs. History Teacher, that they don't exist. Reality is that there is voter fraud in this country and if you don't believe me then you go ahead and look at what Bev Harris has uncovered on her website http://www.blackboxvoting.org/ Reality is a hard smack in the face that this is a reality and no one is really doing anything about it. Maybe you can ignore that too Mrs. History Teacher. Reality is that Ron Paul raised over $19 Million dollars in the 4th quarter of 2007 and that his 4th quarter donations came from 130,000 donors with 100,000 being NEW donors ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Paul_presidential_campaign,...)! American People donated this money! Are you, Mrs. History Teacher going to tell those donors how UNREAL they are? How about the fact that Ron Paul is the number one candidate among military contributions? Are those military personnel and soldiers unreal as well??(Truth @ The Spin Factor)....So don't tell me, Mrs.History teacher about the reality you feel you must teach MY CHILD! Reality is not what YOU DECIDE it should be! If you are going to teach MY CHILD in a public school where your salary is paid for by my tax dollars and who's doors open because of taxpayers who pay to keep the heat on and the electricity running.....Well I say that MY CHILD is going to know actual reality! And until Ron Paul steps down he is STILL RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!! How dare you Mrs. History Teacher. But you are not alone.....How dare you New York Times. How dare you Newsday. How dare you Sean Hannity. How dare you Rush Limbaugh. How dare you Bill O'Reilly. How dare you MSNBC. Now dare you Fox News. How dare you CNN. How dare you NBC, ABC, CBS.... How dare you American's who keep taking this and putting blinders on to what is happening! And you wonder why a revolution is erupting in your backyards? Here is a list of American Citizens who have publicly endorsed Ron Paul. I'd like you to tell them that their endorsement doesn't matter and that their mind is not set in reality. How do you think they'll like that Mrs. History Teacher? Shall I let them know how little you think of them? (http://www.ronpaul2008.com/endorsements). Hey Justin Raimondo author for Anti.war.com, you don't follow reality! Hey, John Derbyshire, author NPR; Hey Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr, president of Ludwig Von Mises Institute; Hey Barry Goldwater, Jr, Republican Congressman, California; Hey Peter Schiff president of Euro Pacific Capital Inc. Hey....http://www.ronpaul2008.com/endorsements.... Let it be known that Mrs. History Teacher says YOU DON'T MATTER!!! Don't let this keep happening, parents, soldiers, mothers, fathers, American's. Wake-up before your reality is no longer your own but what someone else tells you it is.

I would have just walked up to the board, and

added Ron Paul with as much information as you knew - to return and make sure it was completed.

And, while I was doing that, I would have been talking the WHOLE TIME, saying, "Gosh, you missed one of the candidates, Ron Paul" while writing his name.

And then, would have said, "I'm sure, teaching history, we would want it to be complete, accurate, and up to date - Ron Paul IS part of what will become history".

Never would I have done nothing!

Or at LEAST opened a dialogue with her that all the students could hear.

I don't think I could have

I don't think I could have zipped my mouth like you did. I sure would love to tell this "history teacher" a thing or two......I am betting this teacher teaches at a public school....sounds like "public school mentality".

No Such Thing

"Welcome to the real world", she said to me
Condescendingly
Take a seat
Take your life
Plot it out in black and white
Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings
And the drama queens
I'd like to think the best of me
Is still hiding
Up my sleeve

They love to tell you
Stay inside the lines
But something's better
On the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the
Top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

So the good boys and girls take the so called right track
Faded white hats
Grabbing credits
Maybe transfers
They read all the books but they can't find the answers
And all of our parents
They're getting older
I wonder if they've wished for anything better
While in their memories
Tiny tragedies

They love to tell you
Stay inside the lines
But something's better
On the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the
Top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you got to rise above

I am invincible
As long as I'm alive

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the
Top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

I just can't wait til my 10 year reunion
I'm gonna bust down the double doors
And when I stand on these tables before you
You will know what all this time was for

The reality they teach

is that you can't beat the system, so just shut up and comply.

But the day is coming, its not today, but a journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.

As a substitute teacher...

You have the right to teach class. Yes, we have a lesson plan to go by, but there's no need to dwell on the plan all class time.

You have the opportunity to inform people that wouldn't otherwise be informed.

Oh...maybe you shouldn't bring up the topic. But, give the kids a reason to ask questions. Put RP's number of delegates on a post-it note, stick it to the board and wait for them to ask who it's for.

one question: whats her

one question: whats her email address. :)
