But purple hair is ok. This is a very telling statement . . . Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lords Prayer are not allowed in most public schools anymore because the word God is mentioned. . . a kid in Arizona wrote the attached NEW School prayer. I like it . . .
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple,orange or green,
Thats no offense; its a freedom scene.
The law is specific,the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In Silence alone we must meditate,
Gods name is prohibited by the state.
Were allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
Theyve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
and the unwed Daddy, our Senior King.
Its inappropriate to teach right from wrong,
Were taught that such judgements do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
Its scary here I must confess, When chaos reigns
the schools a mess.Should I be shot;
My soul please take! Amen
. . . . .
God Bless Our America
I will try not to complain today, Dear Lord, but I will listen to others with patience and understanding. Amen
. . . . .
You cant get much done by starting tomorrow.

A man asked his doctor for help with his snoring problem. As soon as I fall asleep, I start snoring, the man said. What can I do to cure myself? Does it bother your wife? the doctor asked, Oh, it not only bothers her, the man replied, it disturbs the whole congregation!
. . . . .
Daffy: What lovely flowers!
Dizzy: I owe it all to you!
Daffy: What did I have to do with it?
Dizzy: You said if I visit my neighbor in the hospital, I should take her flowers, so I took them, here they are.

The Old Country Schoolhouse

With faded paint peeling,it stands all alone.
The door is ajar,all the windowpanes gone,
all about, only silence,save the wind in the trees.
Whispering softl .....
