    "Utopianism also attempts to shape and dominate the individual by doing two things at once: it strips the individual of his uniqueness, making him indistinguishable from the multitudes that form what is commonly referred to as 'the masses,' but it simultaneously assigns him a group identity based on race, ethnicity, age, gender, income, etc., to highlight differences within the masses."

    Subject: New school prayer

    BY A 15-year-old SCHOOL KID who got an A+ for this entry (TOTALLY AWESOME)!

    The Lord's Prayer Is not allowed in most US Public schools any more.

    A kid in Minnesota wrote the following…

    NEW School Prayer:
    "Now I sit me down in school
    Where praying is against the rule
    For this great nation under God
    Finds mention of Him very odd.
    If scripture now the class recites,
    It violates the Bill of Rights.
    And anytime my head I bow
    Becomes a Federal matter now.
    Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
    That's no offense; it's a freedom scene…
    The law is specific, the law is precise.
    Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
    For praying in a public hall
    Might offend someone with no faith at all…
    In silence alone we must meditate,
    God's name is prohibited by the State.
    We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
    And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks...
    They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
    To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
    We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
    And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
    It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,
    We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.
    We can get our condoms and birth controls,
    Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles...
    But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
    No word of God must reach this crowd.
    It's scary here I must confess,
    When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
    So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
    Should I be shot; My soul please take!

    Amen"

    Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.'

    Have you ever noticed that people who in the 70s may have been enthustically singing "he can't even run his own life, I'll be damned if he'll run mine" now want to run your life?

    Random: I occasionally blame Burke Breathed, what with the way he wrapped up Bloom County — Bill the Cat, Donald Trump, brain transplants, and Trump Dumps etc — for Donald Trump entering politics. I feel like Scotty should beam me up anytime now...

    How appropriate to be quoting OTIS in the upLIFTing thread.

    John André said, "As I suffer in the defence of my Country, I must consider this hour as the most glorious of my life -Remember that I die as becomes a British Officer, while the manner of my death must reflect disgrace on your Commander."

    I think maybe the hanging was somewhat less than just, as was the hanging of Nathan Hale.
