I bet they wished they had stayed on the school playground and far away from politicians.

A class of 4th graders from Lincoln Akerman School in Hampton Falls recently went on a field trip to the State House in Concord for a fun civics lesson, according to NH1.

The students and their teacher, James Cutting, were at the State House so they could see in person the process of how a bill becomes law. They even drafted a bill that established the Red Tail Hawk as the New Hampshire State Raptor.

As teacher and students looked on from the balcony, a republican from Rochester, Rep. Warren Groen said, "It grasps them with its talons then uses its razor sharp beak to basically tear it apart limb by limb, and I guess the shame about making this a state bird is it would serve as a much better mascot for Planned Parenthood."

Rep John Burt piled on, saying  "Bottom line, if we keep bringing more of these bills, and bills forward that really I think we shouldn't have in front of us, we'll be picking a state hot dog next."

Nice going fellas. Let's make the up and comers want to take part in the political system. Someone once said words to the effect that there are 2 things people shouldn't see being made, their sausages and their laws.

I could have saved the kids from seeing their bill being disrespected. Schoolhouse Rock had this covered years ago.
