National Create More Lies Day

Today, across this country, in various courtrooms, many children were stripped of their identity. Their identities legally changed, birth certificates amended to show them born to people to whom they are no biologically related.

Feel good stories about new families being made abound. But no one wants to talk about the families that are destroyed to make adoption possible. How do we, as a nation, celebrate the trauma of these children?

Then I remember that Columbus has a national holiday. It all makes a little more sense.

If only people would be as interested in protecting the rights of these children, maybe we could have something to celebrate. Perhaps we could all donate to the Adoptee Rights Demonstration in honor of National Adoption Day.

In fact, that's what I think I'm going to do...

This isn't much of a post. But I hate this day. A lot. And I can't think of anything else to say.

Ya, if Columbus could burn people alive and have a holiday named after him, our brain-washed American culture will beieve ANYTHING.

The lie that adoption is BEAUTIFUL has been drilled so much into the American psyche that most people are now adoption rainbow-farters. They are everywhere spewing cr*p like: "My cousins, 1/2 nephew is adopted and he's very happy!"
