    Good Grief!!!! What makes anyone think that Mexican/American history should be taught in public schools, when they can’t accuratly teach AMERICAN HISTORY properly?

    D_Loki, Didn’t you know that we all have to be politically correct these days. Real American History might offend the sheeple.

    Mexican/American??? Gez Like Loki says they can’t teach American Hx right. Istead how about Czech Republic/American Hx? Or Swedish American HX – The Scandanavian people had a huge impact on the geographically top 1/3 of our country and no one gets excited about that!!!

    How many Mexican Americans are in Illinios anyway?

    Well ponymama, living in the land of Lutefisk (If you don’t know what Lutefisk is, be glad), I get plenty of Scandinavia up here. So I hear ya. I will never fault you for being a descendant of the Emerald Isle, I myself am son of an Irish immigrant, so I know the fiery temper (tie that in with being an Aries, and I shorten the fuse by a factor of 10 lol). As for how many Mexicans are in Illinois. Step into ever restaurant kitchen in Chicago and grab the census. I’m sure the population must be close to 20% down there, now the percent of those legal is another question.

    Slaw-Political correctness is the number one form of idiocy destroying this country and has been since the Great Communicator left office.

    When I see the “History” being taught in schools now I cringe. They say the victors write the history and liberal crackpots have “won” the educational system through the unions and by populating universities. I think the lib’s stayed to be professors because they had no drive to work for a living and were afraid to enter the real world. God is banned from schools, the truth of this country’s founding is adulterated, political correctness and sensitivity training are numbing the minds to homogenize students into thinking that to excel is to be hateful. The Marxist/socialist agenda had been indoctrinating our schools for the last 20 years just to have another generation under the thumb, willing to accept the crapola that’s coming out of the “Toilet on the Potomac”

    The latest idiocy from obamaland. Our wonderful gov, Doyle (WI), just passed a law requiring schools to teach the history of unions. Never mind Milwaukee is 2nd only to Detroit in education.

    They have a LAW about not wearing bowling shoes outside? Is the whole state of ILlinois nuts? Never mind…they almost overwhelmingly voted for Nobama…

    Kind of off topic, but have y’all noticed how close “Obama nation” sounds like “ABOMINATION”?

    I’m afraid its only going to get worse. Illinois is dominated by Chicago politics. You know Chicago, right? I hear they gave a fellow named Bill Ayers their “Citizen Of The Year Award” in 1997. And, I’ve heard rumors Mr. Ayers blew up police departments and the Pentagon in the 1960s …

    A little known fact is that in 1861, Southern Illinois tried to seceed from Northern Illinois. Even back then, upstate politics dominated downstate counties, and many of the residents supported joining the Confederacy. The resolution was soon repealed, however. Union General Benjamin Prentiss left a company of men near Marion for defense as he passed by on his way to a garrison in Cairo. Despite some southern sympathizers, most young men in the region joined the Union Army.

    There’s a lot of conservatives south of I-70, IceFire, and if a vote were held today on Southern Illinois breaking away from the north, there’s a pretty fair chance it would pass. Most of the counties in the South, including my own, went for McCain. St. Clair County, adjacent to St. Louis, Missouri, is a Lib Dem bastion (probably owing to East St. Louis). And Carbondale is a lefty place … anywhere you have a university, you have Lib Dems in control.

    Despite conservatives in the South, Senator Dick Durbin, one of the principals involved in ramming Obamacare through, gets elected and re-elected without breaking a sweat. Illinois can be a very schizophrenic state. A lot of the problem is, even the Republicans here tend to play crooked Chicago political games. If you were to look at voting records only, it’d be hard to tell Republicans and Democrats apart.

    Like I say, its only going to get worse. By 2012, look for bans on reloading, punitive taxes on arms and ammunition, and a lot of other silly matters criminalized as Illinois – $15 Billion in the hole and counting – tries to balance the budget through fines and other taxes.

    LOL Jinnig, yer too darn cold up there! Been bad enough way down here this past week anyway.

    cdj is right, this state is psycho. The idiotic crap they do to the citizens of Illinois would roll your eyes right out of your head. We are by far, the most anal state in the union with the highest per person taxes along with a huge illegal mexican population we dote on. I left the Chicago area almost 20 years ago and even then they were trying to force us(white folks) to allow our children to be taught spanish so THEY could mainstream in public school. Now you know why my kids were homeschooled. Oh, I got a whole rant I could get into on it, coupled with some very colorful vocabulary.
