If the debate in Texas were over the divine origins of American exceptionalism, that is whether the Founding Fathers were divinely inspired to embark on this American experiment or not, it would make more sense to me. But I find it depressing that we're arguing over whether we should teach our children that the origins of our country were special, that unlike other countries around the world the US is not based on ethnicity or culture but on a unique idea that anyone can ascribe to.
The US is exceptional in that regard. And no, Pres Obama, not in the same way that Greeks are.

CVG sent me a link about the banning of raw milk. Personally, I've never even given raw milk a thought, but I do care deeply about the Constitution. And the umbrella of "interstate commerce" is really out of hand these days.
I love how all these little issues are cropping up to test the 10th Amendment lately, and they range from rightwing nutjob issues like the made-in-Montana guns to flaming lefty causes like medicinal marijuana or raw milk.
We're all being encroached on by the federal government, left and right. Let the hippies drink their raw milk, for pete's sake.
