Considering The Possibilities
"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."

I read an article the other day that made me smile, and I thought I'd share it. Its title is: "How Dana Perino Saved My Daughter," and relates a conversation between a national columnist and speaker - Ms. Sonnie Johnson - and her daughter involving the daughter supposedly "schooling her teacher." (For those who might not know Dana Perino, she is a political commentator on FNC who was White House Press Secretary for President Bush from September 2007 to January 2009.):

"How Dana Perino Saved My Daughter

My daughter gets off the bus. "Mom, guess what? I schooled my teacher today."
Me: "What did you do?"

"We were talking about Ancient Mali and I told her they made money from salt, gold, and slavery."

Me: "Okay."

When the teacher questioned (my daughter) about "the slave trade" (my daughter) said, "yeah, Africans were selling slaves to Arabs long before the white man."


An hour later, "Mom, you really don't believe in the First Amendment."

Me: "Of course I do."

"You make all these rules about what I can and can't say and when and where I can say it. That doesn't sound like Freedom of Speech."

Me: (Stupid Look)

"I'm just sayin."

Me: "When you get out of my house you can have all the Free Speech you want. But even then, you are a representation of your upbringing so you better act like you got some damn sense.

(Schooled) I think.

I'm watching The Five and wondering if I need to nip this 'know it all' attitude in the bud when Dana Perino comments about her tendency as a child to always talk back, always speak up, and question everything. She said it was good practice and preparation.

I looked at my daughter and smiled.

Her: "Why you smiling at me?"

"The possiblities.""
