To the editor:

I now pull from the KIDDIE SECTION of the HOMER R. DODSON RESIDENTIAL LIBRARY a book titled IF YOU LIVED AT THE TIME OF SQUANTO by Anne Kamma.

Page 10: The Europeans were dirty. The Europeans had beards. The Europeans thought bathing was bad for you. Indians were very clean.

Page 15: Indian houses were warm and dry and better than houses in England.

Page 20: “Children were loved and watched over by everyone in their village. Parents never hit or yelled at their children.”

At this stage, I gotta stop and bust out laughing. Time out. I really think the author was serious. Some will stop at nothing to make their liberal agenda sound great especially to little children.

Page 21: It is implied that the Indians had superior medicine.

Page 39: The worship of nature is given a favorable pass.

Here’s a lesson for America that I bet the author doesn’t want the kids or you to get. That’s where you need me and here’s the lesson:

Like the New England Indians, your country’s people can be cleaner and your towns and cities prettier but you will still lose your country if your leaders won’t or can’t protect your borders.

You can have better health and medicine but still lose your country if your leaders won’t or can’t protect your borders.

You can enjoy better housing and be more comfortable and still lose your country if your leaders won’t or can’t protect your borders.

You can have the best child care in the world but still lose your country if your leaders won’t or can’t protect your borders.

You can have the best belief system and still lose your country if your leaders don’t protect your borders.

Perhaps one will say, “Don’t knock immigrants. We all came from immigrants. Immigrants are important.” True. The difference is that we used to take immigrants and still control our borders.

A nation that won’t or can’t control its borders will lose its country.
