Texas Textbook Wars

Published  Monday, June 7, 2010

As you may have heard (unless you were living under a rock for the past few months) The Texas Board of Education has been under fire for its recent changes to the textbook standards for our state.

Many have said that the board was trying to "Whitewash" the history books, put organizations like the NRA and the Moral Majority in a positive light, remove Thomas Jefferson from the list of important historical figures, and so on and so on.

So much has the left wing media propelled these lies, that textbooks that meet Texas standards are being boycotted by some. A ridiculous idea if you actually research what the standards are instead of believing everything you hear... like a mindless zombie.

Side thought: Isn't it interesting that conservatives and libertarians are called mindless zombies for FOX News and Talk Radio, and yet it is we who question everything we are told. I for one research anything and everything I am told before I commit to believing it. However, those who repeat the dribble they are fed from MSNBC, The NY Post, The Huffington Post and the like are the informed ones!

Back to the issue at hand. California has passed a law seeking to ban any textbooks that meet the Texas standards. Read more about this latest in California absurdity here.

And if you're interesting in reading the proposed changes on the Texas Board of Education site click here, though it is a little tedious to read through. If you would like to read about the changes that actually made it through, click here.

Hopefully this will help you wade through the liberal slop that's out there.
