GNH (Gross National Happiness)

fact: "Bhutan was the last nation in the world to introduce television in 1999. Recently they banned a number of channels including international wrestling and MTV, which they felt did little to promote happiness."

Cuz the Bush’s Love the Children[?]


So, let’s start from the beginning. Some of you may have heard of an educational program in this country called ‘No Child Left Behind‘, instituted during Bush’s first term [this isn’t commentary for or against that program, which remains controversial as it supposedly encourages ‘teaching to the test’].

Neil Bush is our president’s younger brother, who seems to have been a little bit of a failure until recently. What changed you ask? Well, I’ll tell you. Neil is now experiencing measured success distributing a new teaching aid, ‘curriculum on wheels‘ [or COWs], that basically uses various multimedia methods of covering information that will most likely be seen on the state testing material in place due to ‘No Child Left Behind’. It projects videos, plays music and lectures…basically, its a teahcer in a box with all the answers to the test. Backed by some Saudi investors, Neil has sold 1,700 of the units since 2005, mainly in Texas, where Houston’s school system has recently authorized 200,000 dollars for COW purchases.

Now, I don’t want to throw around assumptions here, but let’s all think for a moment. President’s [loser] brother, getting rich off of a questionable education reform system, instituting pseudo teacher-replacing technology, in Texas, with financial backing from Saudi investors. Only things missing are some hanging chads in Florida.

I mean, a machine that ‘teaches’ children government controlled information through sing-song memorization? I guess Orwell and Huxley are off the reading list.

Blind Ninjas Use Swords Too

If you’re blind, you can still thrash with a blade, and if you have no cabinet you can still be presidential. Then there’s that blind ninja in the Boondocks who gets killed by granddad… on second thought, just click either picture to be amazed and surprised.

My Ninja, Please! 10/10/06: No Spanish Witches in this town

We here at MNP like to encourage reading [as you may have noticed, we’ve even got you reading right now]. Especially important though are the younger ninjas, what with TV and videogames sucking up all their attention. So, while maybe not really the illest of books [I’m a Tolkien fan myself], the Harry Potter series seems like a good thing. Kids put down the remote control and pick up a book, stretch the imagination a little…no harm done. That is, unless you’re from Georgia [aparently], where a mother from the suburbs of Atlanta is trying to get the books banned from the library/schools, as they encourage Wicca and evil, blah blah blah.

Luckily, the schoolboard feels this is extreme, and would force them to ban other books containing witches and magic, so its a no go.

But theres more. Earlier this year residents of the same town convinced the library board to do away with the $3,000 set aside for Spanish language books. Why, you ask? Well they felt that reading material shouldn’t be provided to people who might be illegal immigrants [because, if you didn’t know, all Spanish speakers are fence jumpers].

While this decision was reversed, I think it stands as proof that yokels shouldn’t be involved in politics, democracy or not.
