Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

A while back I wrote Balkanization, a piece about the Tucson Unified School District's "Raza Studies" program, part of its broader Ethnic Studies program. It was fairly obvious from the coverage that the "Raza Studies" program was another example of Critical Pedagogy in the public school system, and its intent is to radicalize the students involved.

Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne decided to do something about it. The program, in his view, encourages students to resent a particular race.
It's just like the old South, and it's long past time that we prohibited it.
If you read up on Paolo Friere and Critical Pedagogy as he envisioned it, that's exactly what it does, regardless of how it's presented as promoting "critical thinking."

So Horne lobbied for a bill in the state legislature, and it was recently passed and more recently signed by Governor Jan Brewer.

Of course, this is just more evidence of how racist Arizonans are.

The Tucson Unified School District says that they will have no problem complying with the new law though, while continuing their various Ethnic Studies programs.

I'll bet.
