QUOTE


"The more subsidized it is, the less free it is. What is known as "free education" is the least free of all, for it is a state-owned institution; it is socialized education - just like socialized medicine or the socialized post office - and cannot possibly be separated from political control." - Frank Chodorov, "Why Free Schools Are Not Free"

Take Action

by Badlands17


They’re just like other people
But now, they’re the steeple
Of a tower of arbitrary hate
Of “you’re just going to have to wait”
The amount of time you are on this Earth
Does not indicate your intellect and worth
Young man; don’t wait
Fight the fight; set things straight
If you believe in yourself
You can fight the ice shelf
It’s projecting out to you
And saying “this is what you have to do”
Fight back; say “You don’t control my life
The opportunities are rife
Rife without you
I want to be through”
But then you remember
You are simply a stray ember
In the big fire they’re burning you in

I hate it when people use just my age instead of an actual argument, very annoying. Nice poem

I agree. Age doesn't matter that much, so why do adults try to use it against us?

Awsome ideas! I hate when adults try to use age, or some other crap as justification for ordering around kids and teens alike without showing any respect while still demanding it at the same time. Not automatically "obeying" someone doesn't make anybody a rebel, it means that they are just as respectible as anyone else no matter what clique, race, or religion you belong to and you demand the respect you rightfully deserve. Keep up the ideas, don't let anyone call you a "punk", "poser", "non-conformist", or anything 'cause those are names people are called by those who be-little them and someone as original as you, and someone who actually uses their brain as much as you doesn't gotta take crap from anybody. P.S.> My e-mail address is fake 'cause I use it to visit sites anonymously so if you want to respond to this thought you could always call (439-5182) area code is(716). Or you could visit my fake myspace as "Alfred Chesterfield"(Batman's butler).
