Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.
- Charles Reade, English Novelist and Dramatist (1814-1884)
Some call it A Menu that Will Live in Infamy, because nothing says honoring Pearl Harbor Day like Japanese food for your school lunch.
Right off the bat, it sounds like a slap in the face, so typical of liberal moral relativism – there is no good, there is no bad, just different points of view, there’s nothing special about America, to hell with her history and all those who have died so that they, the moral relativists can have the freedom to spew their bullshit about how there is no good and evil, no black and white and everything is a gooey shade of grey . . . but to be honest, the school’s explanation seems pretty believable: supposedly, the contractor that prepares school lunches randomly assigned an Asian menu to Dec. 7, and the subcontractor that prints the calendars automatically marked Wednesday as Pearl Harbor Day. “It was completely coincidental,” said Ellis Turner, associate head of Sidwell Friends, the elite private school where Sasha and Malia Obama attend.

So most likely, it’s not an intentional snub at all the veterans who died in the greatest attack on American soil pre-9/11, but what this story does remind me of once again is the hypocrisy of politicians who have been bought and paid for by the public teachers unions, hypocrites who send their kids to private schools and then tell the average American family that public school is good enough for their kids.
We, the ruling elite, can afford to pay our share of the taxes for the public school and then pay for our kids’ private school on top of it. For the rest of you schlubs, hell no you can’t use your taxes to send your kids to the school of your choice, hell no can you use a voucher to send your kids somewhere outside your local failing public school. You will pay taxes for that public school whether your children use them or not.
Sure, we could afford to pull our kids out of those public schools, but they’re good enough for the rest of you.
