Don’t censor Mark Twain!!

Ugh….more proof that the two-party political system of extremes is gonna ruin this country.

The shootings in AZ totally break my heart. While I am a firm believer in the rights ensured us by the First amendment{ surprise, surprise} I do NOT think that violence is the answer to dealing with those with differing opinions. This shooting just proves how far-gone BOTH sides of the current political spectrum are now. I pray for & fear for our great nation & its citizens.

Yes, we have the right to bear arms. But murder & attempted murder is both morally & also legally wrong.

Another thing that sickens me is the historical revisionism that is taking place in this nation. Don’t get me wrong, I hate the ” N-Word” passionately. But classics of American literature should NOT be revised in order to sugar-coat the reality of America’s history of slavery & racial segregation. The N word is offensive: It is VERY offensive. yet at the same time, it was { and sadly still is} in use at the time that _ Huck Finn_ was written.

“…it is troubling to think the state of reading comprehension in this country has become this wretched, that we have tweeted, PlayStationed and Fox Newsed so much of our intellectual capacity away that not only can our children not divine the nuances of a masterpiece, but that we will now protect them from having to even try”
