So I'm sitting here, eating my salad, getting ready to take my boy to school and I decide out of boredom to look up the profile of a girl with whom I had a bit of a tiff some months ago over me making fun of Glenn Beck.
She took it personally. Even said so.
I know, shock.
So I look her up today because, while we struggle to get along, I don't have all bad feelings for her. She amuses me more these days than not. And, you know, I run into her sometimes. I can't be all mad and whatnot--not worth it.
Anyway, she's a "very conservative" LDS Glenn Beck tea partier. Got that?
Her status the other day:
"Why do schools teach collective obedience rather than individual responsibility?"
I dunno, H. Why does your church teach the same?
"For a long time now school has been a system of indoctrination, not education."
They go on to bitch about government. No surprise. While I agree with my limited knowledge that government is fucking up our education system, it's likely not for the same reason this girl thinks.
I just found the irony amusing.
Especially when you consider that "big government" has a striking, striking similarity to how the LDS church is structured.
End LDS rant.
