this may look familiar
« on: September 23, 2009, 09:54:05 PM »
but not in this country?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Burlington, NJ is in this country - what am I missing?  That is hasn't been seen here?  Somehow I saw it.  Chilling isn't the word.

i meant that it's the kind of thing that you see in other countries, not this one.  it's usually preceded by something like "Heil".

My first grader was taught this song in school last year.
Its in another thread, I can't talk about it right now because it makes me upset.
This stuff scares me to my core.
