Boxing Up Our Children and Delivering Them to McDonald’s and Burger King.

When the public education system goes out of its way to indoctrinate our young children, promoting McDonald’s and Burger King in songs and ditties to Kindergartners, when junk food laden with sugar, produced by Beatrice under all its various labels is proliferated as healthy in school classrooms, hallways and cafeterias, promoted as good eating by teachers, one really must wonder. Where have I witnessed this from firsthand experience?  A mom whose child was enrolled at Washington School, Sandpoint, Idaho, that child since removed from said school and placed into the Idaho Virtual Academy instead, which is proving itself first-rate as a good, solid education, and not promoting corporate interests and the dumbing down of our children that is now rampant throughout the public school system in the US.

Totally Disheartening

One of the best printing, matting, framing, and drop shippers of art on the Internet, a start-up called ImageKind is leading its artists down the merry road by the nose.  They keep promising fixes, and the fixes aren’t happening…not even six months after they are promised.  I’m so tired of the “we’re working on it,” and other empty air.  It’s totally disillusioning.  I’ve typed my last over on their forum.  They get it fixed, or I’ll pulll all my ads in their favor.
