Angry Do you believe this bullshit "change Halloween's date" petition

This utter garbage right here

Quote:
It's time for a Safer, Longer, Stress-Free Celebration! Let's move Halloween to the last Saturday of October!
Quote:
65% of parents don’t discuss Halloween safety with their children. Talk with your kids and offer ways to ensure a fun and safe experience
The idea here is that instead of always being October 31, it would be whatever the last Saturday is so kids don't have to stay out late

I went out every year in the dead of night without parents or, fuckin', reflective tape on my costume or anything and I didn't die

But if I deserved to, I would have taken the L because Halloween is fucking awesome

Not that I buy into dumb ideas like “Things were shitty for me as a kid so they should be shitty for everyone else forever.”

Listen

The difference here is that things ruled for me as a kid and I want them to rule for kids forever

I don't expect this petition to take the country by storm; I'm just appalled by the idea that someone would propose Halloween be less dangerous

my father discussed halloween safety when he told me to watch out for razorblades in my candy. it's always been my least favorite holiday tho...such a drag to wear a costume and i can buy my own candy tyvm but i'm not even a candy freak like that

I sort of get it. I wouldn’t want them to change trick or treat to daytime...but a Saturday night would be nice. It’s always on a school night so it’s always sort of rushed for my kids. If it wasn’t a school night we’d provably stay out trick or treating a little bit later, we’d probably let them eat more candy when we get home. Instead it’s like oh we gotta get home and get ready for bed bc you have school the next day and oh don’t eat too much chocolate bc then you won’t be able to sleep!

And it’s hard for working parents -my hub usually has to miss out on doing it which I know he hates.

I want my Halloween on boring-ass Tuesday nights and my children’s guts smeared into the pavement by a Hallmark store assistant manager’s pumpkin-spice-fueled rampage through a neighborhood.

Hmm for us itís like, fuck bedtime sometimes

For example, Halloween and 4th July

At least for the older ones, itís not like a crime if theyíre up a little late, just have to be extra gentle with them the next day as they behave like trollfucks

I went to school with some redneck crackers
Right around the time 3rd Bass dropped the cactus album
But I was readin Malcolm
I changed my name in '89 cleaning parts of my brain
Like a baby nine
I took a history class serious
Front row, every day of the week, 3rd period
Fuckin with the teachers had, callin em racist
I tried to show them crackers some light, they couldn't face it
I got my diploma from a school called Rickers
Full of, teenage mothers, and drug dealin niggas
In the hallways, the popo was always present
Searchin through niggas possessions
Lookin for, dope and weapons, get your lessons
That's why my moms kept stressin
I tried to pay attention but they classes wasn't interestin
They seemed to only glorify the Europeans
Claimin Africans were only three-fifths a human being

They schools can't teach us shit
My people need freedom, we tryin to get all we can get
All my high school teachers can suck my dick
Tellin me white man lies straight bullshit (echoes)
They schools aint teachin us, what we need to know to survive
(Say what, say what)
They schools don't educate, all they teach the people is lies (chorus)

You see dog, you see how quick these motherfuckers be to like
Be tellin niggas get a diploma so you can get a job
Knowwhatimsayin but they don't never tell you how the job
Gonna exploit you every time knowwhatimsayin that's why I be like
Fuck they schools!

School is like a 12 step brainwash camp
They make you think if you drop out you aint got a chance
To advance in life, they try to make you pull your pants up
Students fight the teachers and get took away in handcuffs
And if that wasn't enough, then they expel y'all
Your peoples understand it but to them, you a failure
Observation and participation, my favorite teachers
When they beat us in the head with them books, it don't reach us
Whether you breakdance or rock suede addidas
Or be in the bathroom with your clique, smokin reefer
Then you know they math class aint important 'less you addin up cash
In multiples, unemployment aint rewardin
They may as well teach us extortion
You either get paid or locked up, the pricipal is like a warden
In a four year sentence, mad niggas never finish
But that doesn't mean I couldn't be a doctor or a dentist

[Chorus, 1st part x2]

Cuz for real, a mind is a terrible thing to waste
And all y'all high class niggas with y'all nose up
Cuz we droppin this shit on this joint, fuck y'all
We gon speak for ourselves
Knowhatimsayin? Cuz see the schools aint teachin us nothin
They aint teachin us nothin but how to be slaves and hardworkers
For white people to build up they shit
Make they businesses successful while it's exploitin us
Knowhatimsayin? And they aint teachin us nothin related to
Solvin our own problems, knowhatimsayin?
Aint teachin us how to get crack out the ghetto
They aint teachin us how to stop the police from murdering us
And brutalizing us, they aint teachin us how to get our rent paid
Knowhatimsayin? They aint teachin our families how to interact
Better with each other, knowhatimsayin? They just teachin us
How to build they shit up, knowhatimsayin? That's why my niggas
Got a problem with this shit, that's why niggas be droppin out that
Shit cuz it don't relate, you go to school the fuckin police
Searchin you you walkin in your shit like this a military compound
Knowhatimsayin? So school don't even relate to us
Until we have some shit where we control the fuckin school system
Where we reflect how we gon solve our own problems
Them niggas aint gon relate to school, shit that just how it is
Knowhatimsayin? And I love education, knowhatimsayin?
But if education aint elevatin me, then you knowhatimsayin it aint
Takin me where I need to go on some bullshit, then fuck education
Knowhatimsayin? At least they shit, matter of fact my nigga
this whole school system can suck my dick, BEEYOTCH!!

I like when Halloween falls in the middle of the week because it usually means that there will be parties all week since there's no consensus on when is best to have them.

i want it to remain on the 31st solely because i hate remembering holidays by days of the week and not dates. i need to pay extra attention to not fuck up which week is thanksgiving, mother's day, father's day, and especially arbor day.

i don't agree with this in every situation, but sometimes making things better for kids can be bad

it was shitty having to clean up after myself and lug my heavy schoolbag on my back, walking home....but after seeing maids doing all of that stuff for kids, and the kids being ungrateful and disrespectful, I kinda think those things should be shitty for my kids, too
