And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

Hey – Let’s dupe little kids and get them to advance our political agenda!

Student Demonstration More Than Kids’ Stuff

The only other place I would expect this is right here in sunny CA, but NY gets awarded the whacky hat today for bussing school kids on the tax payers’ dime to “save the rainforest.” Environmentalists are always in such a loud tizzy over exploitation of the little guy by the big corporate fat cat, but it seems they have no problem with rousting up a few 7 and 8 year olds to protest logging and petrol drilling.

I can still remember what it was like to go to 1st and second grade as a little guy, and the excitement I had over getting to take a big giant bus to some obscure field trip event. I can also guarantee you that if you were to ask the average second grade class if they’d like to take a bus ride to go get mace sprayed in their eyes, they’d jump on it in a heartbeat.

What is unbelievable is that this scheme was even hatched in the first place – what’s even more unbelievable is that they actually went through with it. Imagine what would happen if McCulloch chainsaw company and Shell Oil bussed a few youngun’s to the state capitol to rally around Timber clearing initiatives and arctic drilling! Yeeee-haw!
