In response to: The New Heroin...a non-poker rant!


 This is worse than sad, this is scarring the stuff out of me!

Go by a High school @ lunch or dismissal & you'll see hundreds of kids stand with their cells in their hands texting, if they were smoking, there would be screams from all, but the govts get their cut (in taxes) from this which helps explain why (in Ont) they are considering to allow this in class!
 The school I work at I now see gr 4 & 5 kids with nicer cell phones than mine! I have a young mother who while she waits for her kid can not stop texting while talking to me (usually 4+ in the 10 mins or longer she is standing there).
 Now I'm going to get a little conspiratorial (my tin hat is just tingling atm)...where does this go from here? In 10 yrs does Little Billy gets his first cell on his first day of nursery school? The baby's first word will be Google? Laws requiring everyone to carry a phone @ all times?  In some European countries you can use your phone to buy from vending machines...look how fast we got to this point?

No more pencils, no more books ,no more teachers dirty looks! Well, we got no class and we got no principals we ain't got no intelligence We can't even think of a word that rhymes!

(Alice Cooper's School's Out...I had to download a copy of the lyrics for the principal @the school when I asked if they wanted to play it on the last day, like we did back in the "old days", she was too young to know it! )

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."
