Today is Take Your Child to a Protest Day

Today being Columbus Day and many school children around the country have the day off from school, the "organizers" of Occupy Wall Street have decided that today this is a good time for a "Kids Speak Out Day". 

"Even as banks got bailed out, American children have witnessed their parents get tossed out of their homes and lose their jobs. Public school kids have lost arts, music and physical education, now our kids can see activists take these issues to the streets in a democratic forum at Occupy Wall Street."

Lovely.  Will anyone be taking a poop on police car while they are there? 

“Most of the kids are trust-fund babies. They don’t need to be here,” said Andre, 40, an activist. “I’ve seen some making out, having sex. It doesn’t look good.”
Are they going to be doing something about that before the school kids come?  Or what about this:

Many of the newcomers to the tent city are attracted by the donated freebies: pizza, sandwiches, fruit, as well as bins of sweaters, pants, boots, even underwear. There are also handout comforters for anyone who wants 40 winks.

And with complimentary condoms on hand, a 1960s-style free love has begun to blossom. More than 400 participants spent the night Friday huddling and cuddling in Zuccotti Park.
So, the organizers of this "leaderless" protest believes that bringing young children down to witness these things are a good idea?  This is democracy in action according to them. 

Yet another reason to homeschool.

Oh, it'll be an education all right. Question is, is this really the kind of behavior we want our kids to be emulating?
