Aaawww, ain't this cute!
Some students in lefty Boulder, CO are staging a protest by holing up in the school library.
"We want them to reassure us that our fears are misguided and that the government is doing everything in its power to prevent our futures from being destroyed," said senior Brian Martens.
The students said they were not protesting this week's election, but said they were worried about the huge national debt run up during the first four years of the Bush administration, along with military recruitment in schools and other issues.
Where are the adults? Why, right on the side of these kids of course!
Boulder High teacher James Vacca expressed pride in the students for staging the protest.
"In an age where narcissistic college students riot in an inarticulate drunken stupor, you have students here at Boulder High School, principled, thoughtful and yet scared of four more years of pre-emptive war, the Patriot Act and an increase in militarism at school through the No Child Left Behind Act," he said.
Hmm, the kid's rationale sounds suspiciously just like that of teacher James Vacca....must be a coincidence. I assume that by "militarizing" the schools, they are referring to not being able to deny reasonable access to schools by military recruiters, recruiters for the same military that is the only thing standing between these hippie wannabee dope smokers and Islamic terrorists who would like nothing better than to behead them.
On second thought, it isn't cute. Someone needs to tell these kids, the parents and the teachers that the 60's are over. Go back to class, we are in a war to protect idiots like them from being killed by terrorists. The American people voted by a margin of around 4,000,000 to re-elect President Bush and stay the course. This is democracy kiddies, get used to it!
