Any Reporter Want to Do Your Job? Journalism? What Journalism?

And no, ahem, reporter asked, “Who paid for all those T-shirts”?

Honestly, I didn’t want to report any fallen world nooze on Good Friday. But I just can’t help it.

Here in my own home town, they rounded up a crowd of school kids and assembled them at Borough Hall to demonstrate against the gun ownership rights of law-abiding, peaceful Americans.

All the kids had bright orange T-shirts printed with the legend, “We Stand With Parkland,” the school in Florida that got shot up by a maniac because The Authorities paid no attention to his repeated threats. So there are the pictures spread all over the local newspaper.

And no, ahem, reporter asked, “Who paid for all those T-shirts”?

Am I the only one who thinks there’s something at least faintly revolting about using children as political pawns?

Is it the law-abiding gun owner’s fault that some homicidal nut that everybody was afraid of was allowed to massacre his classmates?

And who is paying for those T-shirts? Why did no one ask?

Well, this is only the latest example of how our incredibly costly “education” establishment turns our children against us. I’d like to ask why we let them do it: only I have asked that question many times already, and still don’t have an answer.
