: Krasny,

: Please look up the Boston Globe on the Web, from I believe a few days ago- maybe last weekend. There was a fascinating little examination of the school where Elian is currently being sent in Miami.

: The school teaches young kids to love and worship the American flag. It tecahes tehm that Nixon was unjustly terated and the majority fo Americans now love him. It teaches that abortion and homosexuality are evil. It teaches [the lie] that Cuba is unavble to provide food and housing for its people. It also teaches [the lie] that the US provides these necessities for everyone. It teaches that every action of teh US worldwide has been for teh general good.

: Elian is getting more indoctrination right now than he would ever receive in Cuba, adn of an explicitly fascist variety.

NJ, I'm on your side, you're a smart guy with a good heart and we're both pointed in the same direction.

But PLEASE stop being careless with the term "fascist."
It's been mentioned on these pages several times that what Amerika does has everything to do with capitalism and nothing to do with fascism.
