Are Government Schools a Form of Child Abuse?

Yes, next question?

As criminally stupid and malicious as these examples are, they don’t answer the question of how things came to be this way.  How did we end up in a nation where reactionary lunatics were in charge of running our “public” schools?

The answer is that our schools were captured by the left, a process that started with the subversion of our teacher’s colleges to leftist dogma, and was completed with the capture of teacher’s unions by adherents of this same malignant ideology.

The only way to free ourselves of this is to home school, and preferably for home-schoolers to network and establish informal schools for groups of students that operate in direct competition to government schools.

The tools to do this already exist: http://homeschool.meetup.com

7th Grader Suspended from Public School for Gun Shaped Key Fob

Coventry Student Suspended for Keychain

A 12-year-old boy was suspended from a Coventry middle school after his parents said he brought a small gun keychain to school.

Joseph Lyssikatos said the keychain was in his backpack at Alan Shawn Feinstein Middle School on Thursday when it fell out. A classmate picked it up and started showing it to other students.

A teacher confiscated it and before Joseph knew it, he was suspended.

I’m just old enough to remember a time when students would drive to school with gun racks on their trucks, often populated.

But that was the 80s.

Today, government schools are places where key fobs in the shape of a gun are grounds for suspension and threats of expulsion.

The older I get, the more convinced I become that my youthful assessment that most school employees are clueless hacks was correct.

The Son of Subprime

cnsnews: HUD’s New ‘Fair Housing’ Rule Establishes Diversity Data for Every Neighborhood in U.S.

To ensure that “every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of,” HUD has published a new fair-housing regulation intended to give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.

The goal is to help communities understand “fair housing barriers” and “establish clear goals” for “improving integrated living patterns and overcoming historic patterns of segregation.”

“This proposed rule represents a 21st century approach to fair housing, a step forward to ensuring that every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of – where they have a fair shot at reaching their full potential in life,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.

Please click on the link above and READ THE WHOLE THING.

What this sinister gobbledygook of anodyne phrases reveals is an ongoing effort to rearrange our communities by people who don’t live in them, according to ideas and notions that range from naive to completely absurd.

Welcome to CRA 2.0, or perhaps it should be called subprime 2.0.

HUD would have us believe that government can somehow magically “give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.”

That isn’t how things work.

What makes a neighborhood better or worse is THE QUALITY OF THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE. The competent and the capable tend to self-select into better communities. The incompetent and dysfunctional likewise self-select into bad communities.

Someone plucked from a bad part of town and dropped into a nicer subdivision is not going to somehow become worthy of living in that better neighborhood. He or she will not suddenly adopt and exhibit the good qualities and behaviors of their new neighbors. Rather, this person will go right on thinking and doing the same bad things that put them in the bad neighborhood they were plucked from, much to the detriment of the community they have been forced into.

HUD seems to be operating on the belief that people can be made better by altering the environment in which they exist. Not really. Not when the environment that exists is of the making and choosing of the people who live in it. Environments don’t create people, people create environments.

Human beings have an uncanny talent for self-selecting into the communities to which they naturally belong.

I live in the best neighborhood I can afford. If I want to live somewhere else, somewhere better, that means I have to learn how to make more money than I currently do. The only thing holding me back are my own talents (or lack thereof) and the willingness to work harder and smarter than someone else.

In other words, if I want to live in a better place, I have to better myself.

Democrats Pushing Jim Crow….Again

Federal Government Now Endorses Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

“Beginning this fall, Alabama public schools will be under a new state-created academic accountability system that sets different goals for students in math and reading based on their race, economic status, ability to speak English and disabilities.” Alabama’s Plan 2020 “sets a different standard for students in each of several subgroups — American Indian, Asian/Pacific islander, black, English language learners, Hispanic, multirace, poverty, special education and white.”

The old South had “separate but equal.”
The new mantra is “together but inferior.”

If the goal is to create and maintain an underclass immediately identifiable by the color of their skin, subjecting the intended victims of this arrangement to an inferior education is a great way to start.

George Wallace must be laughing in his grave right now.

If I was not continually reminded that it is we conservatives who are guilty of it, I might start to suspect that leftists are racists.

Democrats just can’t seem to stop oppressing black Americans. First they enslaved them. Then they fought a civil war to keep them enslaved. Then they spent decades excluding them from the political process. Then they dreamed up ways to crush them through government dependence and the destruction of the family. Now they’ve come up with a scheme to ensure they receive an inferior education…yet again.

Hobbits or Terrorists? 26% of Obama Supporters Describe Tea Party as the Latter

JWF:26% of Obama Supporters View Tea Party as Nation’s Top Terror Threat

Half of all voters consider radical Muslims the bigger terrorist threat facing the nation, but supporters of President Obama consider the Tea Party to be as big a danger. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters consider radical Muslims to be the bigger threat to the United States today. Thirteen percent (13%) view the Tea Party that way, and another 13% consider other political and religious extremists to be the larger danger. Six percent (6%) point to local militia groups. Two percent (2%) see the Occupy Wall Street movement as the bigger terrorist threat.

This is why they’re called “low information voters.”

The problem isn’t what they don’t know, but all the things they do know that just aren’t true.

Ricin mailer turns out to be unhinged Hollywood leftist

‘Pro-Gun’ Ricin mailer turns out to be Hollywood anti-gunner

The letters came in the mail, and they bore a chilling message:

“You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns. Anyone wants to come to my house will get shot in the face. The right to bear arms is my constitutional right and I will excersice [sic] that right til the day I die. whats in the letter is nothing compared to what ive got planned for you.”

The first one was addressed to Michael Bloomberg, the most visible face of the anti-gun movement, but it was intercepted at a postal facility that screens mail for New York celebrities. (No one will ever poison one of them, just an expendable postal worker, the new Ruling Class equivalent of Cleopatra’s food taster). Within a few days an identical letter with an identical date and postmark came to Mark Glaze, the guy who does the day-to-day gruntwork of trying to disarm America for his boss, Michael Bloomberg, at his lobbying firm The Raben Group, 1640 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington DC. Glaze was not covered by postal special treatment at the time, but the envelope was opened, as all mail to Washington lobbyists is, by an expendable intern.

Those few individuals who seriously study criminal communications, like these letters, can often utter an opinion with some degree of confidence about whether the letter is written by an actual idiot, or by an intelligent and educated person impersonating an idiot. These letters do show deliberate misspellings and usage “errors” of the type used in such an impersonation.

Long story short, a crazy woman tried to frame her husband as the next Unabomber. She fooled the Marxist Socialist Media, or should I say they were willing accomplices in her ruse. She wasn’t crafty enough to fool the FBI though, which is still largely staffed by professionals who care about the truth.

Turns out she’s an actress whose most recent role was as a zombie on The Walking Dead. Her next role will be as a woman behind bars, except she won’t be acting.

Jan Brewer gives Chris Christie a run for his money

National Review: Brewer’s Tantrum

Jan Brewer’s eagerness to impose new taxes to help the Obama administration finance its expansion of the welfare state has gone from unwise to unseemly: The Republican governor of Arizona is attempting to force the Republican-led state legislature to expand Medicaid and is threatening to veto all legislation until she is satisfied. She is calling her gambit a “moratorium” on legislation, and she already has vetoed five unrelated bills. This is conduct unbecoming of a chief executive.
