We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Something inane and asinine has got me a little wound up today. In a recent "review" of the delightful children's book H.A. & Margaret Rey, L.A. English teacher Robin Roth provides an incite(this is the choice spelling here) into the animal cruelty, bad parenting and imperialist tendencies demonstrated in a children's book cause one to take pause as socially irresponsible.
Here's the review:
This is just insanely overboard here. I fancy myself liberal and progressive on many issues but the types of topic the reviewer brings up aren't ment for three-year-olds. The other point she makes in the end is one many would disagree with: that wildlife exists for human use and pleasure. I got news for you Roth, many people believe just that. Many of us use animals for work and pleasure. That's what pets are. That's what the mule is for. They call them work animals for a reason. Besides, if you eliminate that notion, then they could arguable be considered competition for space and resources. We don't want that now do we.
This is the most idiotic review I've seen in my life. This is a young children's book. Leave it that way. three-year-olds aren't about being socially responsible.
