# Richard J. Maybury at Property Rights Research - The Great Thanksgiving Hoax - the official story of Thanksgiving leaves out some important details: there was little to be thankful for in Pilgrim America until they switched from socialism to a free market. Another copy and more in this Sagebrush Saloon post. [sierra]

# Phyllis Schlafly TownHall.com - No child left unmedicated - Illinois has jumped on-board the Bushnev bus to test all children for "mental illness". I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Nobody will medicate my kids without my permission. Anyone who tries will suffer immediate severe consequences. [stanleyscoop]

The partnership requires the Illinois State Board of Education to develop and implement a plan that incorporates social and emotional standards as part of the mandated Illinois Learning Standards, which are due on Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich's desk by Dec. 31. This inevitably opens up screening for politically incorrect attitudes and nonconformity with liberal attitudes of tolerance.

Mental health diagnoses are inherently subjective and social constructions, as even the diagnostic manuals admit. Many thousands, if not millions, of children would receive stigmatizing diagnoses that would follow them for the rest of their lives.

"State-of-the-art treatments" will result in many thousands of children being medicated by expensive, ineffective, and dangerous drugs. The long-term safety and effectiveness of psychiatric medications on children have never been proven.

The side effects of suggested medications in children are severe. They include suicide, violence, psychosis, cardiac toxicity, and growth suppression. Several school shooters, such as Eric Harris (Columbine) and Kip Kinkel (Oregon) had been on antidepressants or stimulants when they committed their crimes.

# Reuters via MSNBC - Calif. teacher prohibited from giving Declaration of Independence - Stevens Creek Elementary School principal, Patricia Vidmar has forbidden a fifth grade teacher, Steven Williams, from using in his classroom historical documents that mention God. Their web site is blocked, but Google's cache provided the following from their contact page:

Stevens Creek Elementary School
10300 Ainsworth Drive, Cupertino, CA 95014
Phone: (408) 245-3312
Fax: (408) 245-7484
Email: block_leann@Cupertino.k12.ca.us (Leann Block, Secretary)
I sent the following message, guessing Ms. Vidmar's email address: [whatreallyhappened]

Ms. Vidmar,

I have read on the internet that you denied use of historical materials mentioning God to fifth grade teacher Steven Williams. In particular, you forbade him to hand out copies of the Declaration of Independence. Shame on you, ma'am. Shame. The Declaration of Independence is the Spirit of America. Without that spirit, we are just another banana republic. If you do not change your ways, I hope that every family with children in your school declares their independence from you. I hope that Mr. Williams wins his lawsuit and you are personally required to pay in damages every penny you own. And that's being nice.


Bill St. Clair

P.S. Ms. Block, if I guessed Ms. Vidmar's email address incorrectly, please give her a copy of this message.

# Eminem - Encore - there's a new version of the mosh video ending with the black-hooded masses entering the chamber of the House of Representatives and the Supreme Court. Time to buy a black hooded sweatshirt, eh?
