Schools indoctrinate kids, celebrate anti-business Socialist

    Today is Pajama Day at schools around the nation in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday.

    I, the Once-ler, felt sad
    as I watched them all go.
    BUT ...
    business is business!
    And business must grow
    regardless of crummies in tummies, you know.

    Mine just had to bring a Dr. Seuss book to school today. He wore his "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" shirt. We read the book together this morning, including the Penn State football locker room reenactment scene on pages 40-41.

    Isn't the Lorax movie also being released today?

    As much as I'd love it to be good, I'm not optimistic.

    Pajama Day in many schools may have began with the Pledge of Allegiance which was written by a socialist, Francis Bellamy.

    It doesn't look too good to me. Hoping to skip it, but if the kids specifically request, I'll probably go. I'm just not going to tell them it's here.

    I've hated all the Seuss movies. The books have a sweetness that a 3-D blockbuster noise assault manages to entirely strip away.

    The fact that they added a ton of new characters and "fluffed" up the story makes me hate it.

    Also, my left-winged friends thought it was the greatest thing ever since it's about the environment...and said if it was a movie about God, they would have hate it since it's so indoctrinating.

    so yeah...I would hate it.
