  • Putin hits a nerve with jibe at U.S. belief in its special status

    Just goes to show- Putin understands what is meant by American exceptionalism about as well as Obama does.

    Know who understood it very well? The passengers on Flight 93 who, as soon as they realized that they were on a suicide flight, did what true Americans do. THAT was exceptionalism.

    Don’t expect the incompetent in the WH to understand that anytime soon.

  • Feds: Teachers embroiled in test-taking fraud

    I apologize for taking so long to answer- too much schoolwork!

    I appreciate your points. Locally-controlled public schools are, largely, paid for by local taxpayers. While I cannot rule out state-level oversight, it would seem to be necessary, as I do not believe that all local control would be productive (i.e. Atlanta). Some areas are just, simply, too corrupt. But local school districts, answerable to the voters, is a far better idea than ANY federal control- which is an abject failure.
    I heard an interesting idea recently, but cannot remember who said it. His suggestion was to the Christian and religious communities, that they take a greater interest in the schooling of children. After all, they do a lot of missionary work and the establishing of free schools in foreign countries, so why not turn some of that inward, HERE, and actually compete with the public schools by offering free education?....I wish....

    It isn’t hard to make the decision that one feels the public school system is an utter and complete failure. It’s intention, from the START and based on Dewey’s teachings, was the destruction of our system of government and to use our children to do it. Well, now it has come to fruition and most of us are scratching our heads and wondering “How did this happen?”

    It’s not too late to change it, but the people must do it. If the government won’t abolish the Dept. of Ed and forbid federal interference, then it is incumbent on the states to exercise their 10th amendment rights and REFUSE any input from them, AND the damn money. State universities should be made to do away with degrees in “education” and all control of the schools should be local. Kick out all interference by the unions; make ALL elementary schools “neighborhood” schools; make the intelligent assumption that not ALL kids should go to college and re-vamp the technical and vocational schools. Re-introduce the basics and do away with “multi-cultural” garbage.

    We know what needs to be done. Who has the courage to do it?

  • GOP Doomed if Establishment Prevails

    The GOP shares a lot of unfortunate traits with the demonRAT party. Establishment republicans want nothing so much as to maintain power and will flop around however they must to maintain it. They have as much respect for First Principles as the ‘RATs do.

    I have every intention of changing my registration this year, and will do my utmost to see our two incumbent, establishment, republicans kicked out of office. But no one should make the mistake of imagining that I would EVER vote demonRAT, even with a loaded gun to my head.

    I am a proud supporter of Tea Party principles and if the “main stream” GOP doesn’t like that, I invite them to go pound sand.

    We fled Massachusetts some time ago because we just couldn’t take the politics, the economy, or the weather anymore. THIS is the state that consistently elects the kennedys, the barney franks, and assorted OTHER dimwits, crooks and idiots. Tells you much about the people who choose to live there.

    We settled in Georgia...never looked back.

    I’m feeling your pain.

    In spite of the damage done by this evil socialist, so many Americans still voted for him. I am losing my faith in the American people. My husband (and a few others) have said that the American people have become too stupid, too lazy and too greedy to want a president that would expect them to ACT like Americans. I can see that I must- finally- agree with him. Bill OReilly said that “the folks” want “stuff”. I have always felt that most Americans KNEW that gub’mint “stuff” came with a hefty price. I can no longer believe that they know this, at all.

    The last 4 years are NOTHING compared to the damage he will do in the next 4. We will never come back.

    I hope that everyone who comes in here will take the few minutes required to read this entire article. It is well worth the time.

    It tells WHAT is happening- I am only sorry it is not telling us WHY. And “why” comes right down to the public education system. Over a hundred years ago, John Dewey decided that you couldn’t make good socialists out of individuals, and so, began a pogrom against the education system that was embraced by other, wealthier and more well-placed, socialists. This agenda has been carried by universities and government agencies since. I cannot remember who said it, Marx or Lenin, but the belief that all that was needed was one generation of schoolchildren has been carried forward, now, into several generations. It has always been the purpose of the public school system to drive a wedge between children and their parents. Parents have values and beliefs that the system doesn’t like.

    So now, as Dewey and his fellow-travelers desired, we have generations of children who are less educated than their peers in other countries, have no critical thinking skills and are fully indoctrinated. Those children who are not the children of the elite are prepped for dependency and a drone-like existence. Oh, and btw...Dewey was an unchallenged eugenicist, just like all well placed socialists of his time.

    I have personally seen concerned parents intimidated by school officials; I have personally seen teachers put aside class time so that young girls can have “baby showers” for each other; I have personally witnessed children being taught that their parents’ values should not be theirs. The purpose of the public education system, beginning with the teaching programs in universities and colleges, is to make absolutely sure that YOUR child believes that dependency on government is a GOOD thing, that your child is properly sexualized (leading to that dependence), and that any propensity for your child to be proud of the American heritage, to be patriotic, or to be a critical thinker is smashed.

    There are things we can do now to bring America back to its past glory, and we should do them. But ONE THING we MUST do is to take the current public education system apart, brick by brick.

    * Abolish the Dept of Education and make sure, by amendment if necessary, that the federal government is forbidden to ever involve itself in education ever again.

    * Return all control of education to the states

    * Abolish all degrees in “education”. They are useless- I know, I HAVE one. All teachers should have degrees in their discipline. This is rarely the case. “Education programs” in colleges are the dumping areas for those who are at the bottom of the education ladder.

    *Cut the funding for education “administrators”. Some districts have as much as a one-to-one ratio, teachers to administrators. Just how many “guidance counselors” does ANY district need?

    * No changes to ANY curriculum that doesn’t have the full cooperation of the parents and the teachers.

    * Make every state a right-to-work state. Boot the teachers unions. The damage they have done to education is inestimable.

    This is just a start. According to the NCES website, American students, despite being the best funded in the WORLD, have now fallen to nos. 24 and 26 behind the Slovak Republic, and this is unacceptable. Our kids need to compete on a global scale and the public schools have seen to it that they canNOT.

    THIS is the danger of not knowing history. This is the track ALL leftism takes, but there are so many that think it “couldn’t happen here” or that WE can MAKE socialism work in THIS country.

    Make no mistake- the leaders on the left always- ALWAYS- knew what they were doing and just WHO would make the best “useful idiots”. And you can thank John Dewey and the Dept of Ed and the teachers’ unions for the rest of the damage.

    This election HAS to be about more than just kicking an incompetent administration out of its can. It HAS to be a complete and total repudiation of leftism. We deny this at our utmost peril.

    So few truly understand the danger that the left poses to this country, or the damage it has already done. Fewer still understand the shared DNA of the democrat party, unions, and organized crime. All have used each other to infest our (formerly) strong national institutions, and building their own along the way. They took over education, the media, and in some cases, the upper reaches of our military. They have destroyed everything they touched and imposed their will through “back door” means. This didn’t start in 1968- it started LONG before that and continues now. It will continue no matter who we elect in November.

    It’s in the schools and colleges, it’s in the media, and it’s in the agencies formed to “protect” us. It’s anywhere where the culture is “softest”. We no longer comprehend the terms “treason” or “traitor”, and we have lost ALL our skills at enemy identification.

    These women are ridiculous and don’t even have the class to know they are embarrassing themselves. From Code Pink to Planned Parenthood, they are becoming a national joke. They “speak” for us? I don’t think so.

    What women- WITH brains- care about is the fact that it costs twice as much to fill their tanks so they can make it to work; they CARE that their groceries are, likewise, twice as expensive, with milk scheduled to go to 6 bucks a gallon; they CARE that their electric bill is three times what it was when Obama took office; they CARE that the current culture encourages their young daughters to become sexually active, even as THEY try to teach their girls to respect themselves; they care that their kids are numbers 24 and 26 in science and math skills behind the Slovak Republic, yet their taxes are climbing every year. She KNOWS she will never get a voucher, so her kids are going to have to stay in failed, abominable public “schools”. Between her and her husband, they make about 60k per year, but the smart woman knows that when Obama talks about “the rich”, he is REALLY talking about HER. She is dreading this years tax season and is just hoping she won’t have to end up paying MORE.

    The smart woman KNOWS the “women’s movement” was NEVER about “women”.
