The Devolution of America, Vol. II
Anyone who thinks the Bush Administration does a poor job of reaching out to the nation’s youth is a fool. Need proof? A recent study found that a third of high school students feel that The First Amendment goes “too far,” while “[o]nly half of the students said newspapers should be allowed to publish freely without government approval of stories.”
It’s clear that the philosophies of the administration are being heard and eagerly accepted by youngsters all over the country. If this keeps up, teens will be champing at the bit to be drafted just in time for the war in Syria.
And just in case you think this is anything but a case of young people being totally fucking retarded, keep in mind that while only 51% are for protecting the press from government approval, 58% are in favor of protecting student newspapers from the scrutiny of the school administration. God forbid the lid doesn’t get blown off that dress-code scandal. The teachers of that 7% really ought to be fired and have their ears boxed, and their parents should have to drink a bucket of my pee.
Of course, it’s not like the press lives up to the responsibility instilled by those rights, so maybe these kids are just more realistic than I.
