Indoctrination - It's okay when we do it

From an editorial in my local paper this morning:
The Arlington Independent School District was one of many in Texas that chose not to show Obama's live address to schoolchildren last week. But on Sept. 21 the district will bus 500 kids to an event at Cowboys Stadium that features George W. and Laura Bush.
George W. Bush and others will, one day, be convicted of war crimes. It will happen, probably not during this administration, but eventually. It took Cambodia 30 years to convict Pol Pot. Let's hope it doesn't take that long for the wheels of justice to turn on the Bush cabal, but know that it will happen. And when it does, there are going to be a lot of Americans who will have a very difficult time coming to terms with the truth of what they cheered on and supported for so many years.

This kind of action shows the schoolkids what their neighborhood is like, which is why the good ones move.

This is really beyond the pail. Cowboys Stadium? What if some of these young and impressionable minds leave there believing that it's OK to be a Cowboys fan?

They're also likely to pick up bad grammar from listening to the ex-president. Please ask TexasFred what responsible parents should do in this situation.
