All Your Children Are Belong to us: The Sequel

Last April, I covered Melissa Harris-Perry’s comment that “All your children are belong to us,” and by “us,” I meant the state.  That stupidity, like all liberal stupidity, was repeated recently.  The Trifecta gang covered the state’s claim on our children… Here is the reaction, and quotes I used in the post on Harris-Perry’s claim on children. Now, this whole concept of children belonging to the “community,” read, the state, is not new at all. Here are some historical references… When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us […]

Education Professor, Thomas Pedroni, Claims That “White Men” out to Destroy Public Education: Too Bad Liberals Already Killed it

I had to laugh when I read about this.  As it is so very well known, the regressives in  the Democrat party have taken the best educational system in the world, and turned it into a steaming pile of failure in a few short decades.  It consistently fails to educate, and resisted all attempts to be reformed.  At any rate, here is Thomas Pedroni, a professor of Curriculum Studies…. EAG NEWS – Public school apologists gathered at the state capitol last week to once again complain about education reform and Republican legislators. It’s a broken record, repeated in many states, […]

Taking America Back One Bit At A Time Part 6: The Process of Taking America Back

Earlier posts in this series can be found here: Part 1, Introduction, Part 2, The Founding, Part 3, The Taking, Part 4, The Taking continued, and Part 5, Looking Beyond December 2012. {NOTE: This is the last post in this series and it is long.} The Process of Taking America Back In Part 5, we speculated about the future. We divided the future into three parts: 1.) from December 2012 until the debt time bomb goes off, 2.) the period of chaos after the debt bomb goes off, and 3.) after the chaos. We will want to keep those three parts […]

The Role of Education in OWS


This is an post that I had written some time ago. Observing the activities of the Occupy movement, I thought it needed to be revisited. The quoted article is ten years old, however, it seems to echo what is going on today. From the August 2001 Idaho Observer: Why Our Schools Teach Socialism By Joe Larson Congratulations America: Today there are over 10,000 openly marxist professors and thousands of humanist professors controlling the universities and colleges that produce America’s teachers and other professionals. Varying forms of marxist-humanism are the predominant philosophies of the educational establishment; yet we repeatedly send our […]

Occupy Wall Street: A Staged, Organized Temper Tantrum?


I’m certain that I’m not the only person that has noticed that the liberals tend to act like petulant children when they “don’t get their way.”  One has to look no further than the Occupy Wall Street Crowd to see that point in action.   So what’s going on?  Why has does the left descend into tantrums when reality intervenes and ruins their plans?   Why do they deny others the right to speak by shouting them down?  Why do so many adults abandon reason and self-control when life throws a wrench into their works?  What happened to the work ethic?   […]

From The Culture Wars: Corruption of Minors OK in NYC Public Schools

culture war

In NY City, there apparently isn’t enough premarital sex and teen pregnancy.  So, the liberal masters of the public schools have decided to encourage some more.  RS McCain has the coverage… . . . what would you think about someone who wanted to talk to your 11-year-old about masturbation, anal sex, “doggie style” and how to perform oral sex if you’ve got braces? Welcome to New York City in 2012: New York City 11-year-olds will soon be learning sex education from workbooks that include instruction on “mutual masturbation, French kissing, oral and anal sex, and “intercourse using a condom and an […]

From the Culture Wars: What a gay kiss proves about the public indoctrination system

culture war

We’ve been stating for some time that public education in this county has little to do with education.  Instead, it has everything to do with making sure that “students” exit it having certain beliefs.  Today, we have another example of that point. Apparently, the Hartford Public High School put on a musical called “Zanna, Don’t!”  The musical takes place in a a parallel universe in which homosexuality is the norm, and heterosexuality is abhorrent.  Now, this kind of impossible argument was tried in one of my college classes.  It failed due to it’s impossibility (reproduction being impossible and all).  However, it seems that the masters of […]

Uh-Oh, Nancy Pelosi is on to us!


Nancy Pelosi has apparently stumbled upon the plans of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy… You mean, we want to reduce the Federal Government to it’s Constitutional limits? Do we want to get rid of job killing regulations-that were written purely to do just that?  Do we want to end the unconstitutional involvement of the government in  public education-that has decreased the quality of said education?  Do we want to tear out the statist control mechanisms? Of course, she engages in the typical leftist fear mongering, but what the statists of all stripes really fear is losing power.  So, to FORMER Speaker Pelosi, I […]

Redstate vs. Blue State Public Schools: Guess who Comes out on Top?

Our Liberal friends, and I use that term loosely, have insisted that theirs is the way to true justice and enlightenment.  With labor unions running amok, massive spending, and government controlled everything, surely the blue states do better, say, in education?  Well, if the latest results hold up, the answer would have to be, “not so much.” Walter Russel Mead of The American Interest has the details. Three of the nation’s ten best public high schools are in Texas — the no-income tax, right-to-work state that blue model defenders like to characterize as America at its worst.  Florida, another no-income […]

Czar Wars Update: Jennings Situation Heats Up

I received this comment on the last post. Things we can do to fight this First: Kevin Jennings has shown a disregard for parental rights and for our children’s well being, yet he is the President’s choice to keep our schools safe! Safe for sexual predators it would seem! Please contact your state school board and let them know that this is unacceptable, and they need to let the President know: it is time Kevin Jennings resigns! Second contact all leaders you can: Contact the White House President Obama is committed to creating the most open and accessible administration […]
