Is our children learning?

(HT Dadahead)
U.S. citizens must understand the United States' history of empiricism in order to speak out against and stop the war in Iraq, said historian, author and political activist Howard Zinn Friday....

He went on to say the United States has had a long history of civilizing people, or at least claiming to.

"The United States is behaving like all the empirical powers have in the past," Zinn said.
As Gene quipped, "we live in a country where most of the population believe that the world was created in six days. Empiricism is the least of our problems."
