School House Rock rocks. :)

We would kill (figuratively) to have that size debt now.

I'm looking at some of their videos. I must say a lot of their videos are quite to the relative right compared to other children videos. Capitalism is portrayed in a positive light. It teaches about the value of money and that there are real expenses in the real world.

Most of them are from decades ago, I have to think that stuff was more accepted then.

I will say I doubt teachers are encouraged to show the political ones in school anymore.

Yeah, I've noticed too. Although, one particular video seems to buck that trend. This one (Tax Man Max) IS realistic in that you have to pay taxes/what taxes in theory pay for/things cost money. However, there is a part in there where they criticize those who want taxes to be lower.

It sends kind of mixed messages. In one sense, the tax man max isn't exactly shown in the most positive light and it uses a lot of loaded words on what taxes are. "Taking your hard earned money". Hell, tax man max is pretty loaded.

For the most part, only a minute few of the population believe that taxes shouldnt't exist at all (aka. anarcho-capitalisms).

Money Rock had a conservative bias.

Earth Rock had a liberal bias.

But the topics kind of lend themselves to that anyways.
