When I was a senior in high school (Texas) we were required to take "Government". I wonder if it's still required learning, and, if it is, what the syllabus looks like now.

Yes and I bet that these same teachers would belive this.

The schools in my city teach the kids that the Second Amendment is no longer relevant in today's society and should be ignored.

My 'civics' teacher was a Hungarian, survivor of the 1950 revolt against the Russians. If you refused to learn the Constitution, he would almost literally beat it into your head.

We had "Civics" class when I was in school, but it pretty much skimmed over the Constitution. What I'm suggesting is a class that specifically focuses on the Constitution. As little as 15 minutes a day would be enough to cover the entire document in a school year. If taught properly, it could actually be a fun class for the students.

I just had a thought. That was a required course in my SENIOR year. A lot of these obamabots never made it to their senior year, so they never had the course. Maybe they should teach it in the 4th grade. Of course that would make the 4th grade an even more miserable 3 years for most of these folks.
CLARK COUNTY, Nev. -- Official Washington has the collective attention span of a fruit fly. This condition is exacerbated by the Obama administration's proclivity for declaring selective events and issues to be crises that require immediate action. The problem is aggravated because the loyal opposition is in nearly total disarray, and few in the so-called mainstream media have any idea what they are talking about.

That's the summary assessment of many attending the annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show here in Harry Reid's Nevada. Note to editors and broadcast producers: The SHOT Show isn't a gun show. Nobody here can buy or...
