"National Red Ribbon Week" is a week-long school propaganda seminar where 
children at all levels, including kindergartners,are made aware of drugs 
through assemblies and classroom discussions. One month into the school 
year and liberals waste no time in filling our innocent children's minds 
with inappropriate discussions that leave children dumbfounded. "We talked 
about drugs today," my 5-year-old informed me as we drive home from "posh" 
Seacliff Elementary School in Huntington Beach. A red ribbon attached to 
her lapel read, "Drug Free." Maybe the school should have pinned another 
ribbon that read: "I practice safe sex."

The irony of this week-long drug orgy is that the adults handing out the 
ribbons should be wearing them instead, for it is through example that 
young minds develop their attitudes and beliefs.

I am happy to say that the red ribbon was tossed in the trash and my 
daughter was kept home from school for the remainder of "Red Ribbon Week."
