We had an event here a few nights ago that I thought would be interesting. The event was titled Shelton Innovators Spring Picnic. This was put on by a local high school and I thought as an inventor, I would like to meet some of these kids and see just what innovative things they were up to.
Well color me surprised when I got there and found out that innovation had absolutely nothing to do with the group or the event. The event was a fund raiser for the group. The group, funded mostly by us suckers…err…I mean tax payers, needs more money. You see the group exist, (some might say), to pay the government rent on a building they built at our expense and to provide a safe place for kids to go after school to hang out, play games and be fed a meal. (I seem to remember that as being called home for my kids), but I digress.
The purpose of my visit was to find some innovative yutes. So I wander into the back room where a few of teenagers were gathered and begin to talk to them. Actually I was impressed at first with these kids, but then I overheard a small group bashing England and all of Western Civilization, so I listened for a bit. When I could take no more, I said: Do you guys understand all of these things you are bashing England for were the norm in all the world, and if it were not for England would most likely still be around today? That the only reason you are free today to say such stupid things is because of what England did for the world?
So I began to tell them just a brief glimpse of how England, and by extension America, are unique in the world, we actually fight to make others free. We are the ones who stopped things like slavery, burning witches, and having rulers above the law (well for a while anyway). We brought the idea of real equality to the world, not this crap you are being fed in schools today.
Well, I looked around and you would have thought I was handing out candy. These kids were hearing that America is not rotten to the core for the first time in their lives, and they were lapping it up. But it was short-lived; one of the bureaucrats who was in charge of these kids must have heard the conversation and decided he needed to break this up, so he came in and sent the kids away to go mingle with the crowd, bus tables, or do anything, just run away from this lunatic who is filling your head with these terrible radical thoughts.
It was fun while it lasted. But I just wanted to pass along what I thought was good news, that there are some yutes who are still open to the truth, that they can have hope, that the country that they live in is not as bad as what they hear about from their teachers, the news media, and the left (sorry that was redundant). They just need to hear it from someone or somewhere.
So speak up, stand up, and do not be afraid to correct these yutes or our country will be having another Lexington Green moment, but this time the yutes will not be holding the line; this time it will happen without the shot, and it will not be heard around the world, but will die, without a sound or voice.
