Another Mom Blasts Common Core

From the Federalist Papers: Common Core touts itself as a “set of rigorous, college-ready, international benchmark standards” but one Arkansas mom disagrees. Watch her speech to the school board and the math problem she gives them. In earlier posts we talked about one school that instructed high school girls to wear burkas so they could better understand muslim women. In another class, the assignment was to rewrite the Bill of Rights, because it’s outdated. As if Common Core weren’t already dumbing down our kids, now they’re overcomplicating basic math. Sadly, there are many parents out there completely unaware of what their kids … Continue reading

Public School Indoctrination.

Parents have traditionally been the primary teachers of the young. As the following article suggests, there are those who feel parents are not worthy of being the role models for their own children. The Toronto Sun has the story.

Confrontation

Fellow ‘Noxer Terry put up the following post:  A Rose Is A Rose….Unless It’s A Pansy . The comment thread led to this post by yours truly. During a wait in a check-out line recently, I had a talk with the lady behind me.  In a short time she talked about her niece.  The lady’s niece was graduating from med school (pediatric surgeon is her goal) and the lady lamented that her relative had become judgmental, speaking despairingly about obesity rates, smoking, etc.  Clearly this Aunt was unhappy with the niece’s attitude. I simply said that it seems higher education today tended to foster this type of … Continue reading

Democrats. Self-Proclaimed “Friend Of The Little Guy” Last Part.

In this short series, I have attempted to shine the light of TRUTH on the myth, promulgated by the democrats, and their willing accomplices of the mainstream media, of their “concern” for the “little people”.   THIS sums up the modern-day democrats PERFECTLY. So does THIS.   With friends like THESE, we don’t NEED enemies. In Part One, here, I covered Obamacare, and the ridiculous costs of most forms of energy. In Part Two, here, I covered the democrats asininity on manipulating the housing markets, and the scam of alternative energy, and it’s effect on costs. In Part Three, here, … Continue reading

Truisms: The Case against Liberalism

I hesitate to write this post because it’s going to require that for the sake of argument I accept the premise that liberalism is a well-intentioned, idealistic ideology intent on “making the world a better place.”  Really I would just as soon slam my hand in the car door than accept such a falsehood, but for the future of the nation I will make the sacrifice.  Now to further set the stage, let’s have a word about truisms.  I’m a big fan of true crime shows.  I’m fascinated by the ways crimes are solved and how our justice system works … Continue reading

Asshat Alert – 6 Year Old Boy Gets Suspended For Kissing 6 Year Old Girl

This should also be filed under “are you shitting me?” The suspension of a 6-year-old Colorado boy for kissing a girl at school is raising questions about whether the obvious sign of affection should be considered sexual harassment. The boy’s mother said officials at Lincoln School of Science and Technology in Canon City, a southern Colorado city of 16,000, are over-reacting. Jennifer Saunders said her son was suspended once before for kissing the girl and had other disciplinary problems, and she was surprised to find out that he would be forced out of school again for several days. This is … Continue reading

Harvard Professor Urges White Male Students To Kill Themselves

Marxist Extremist Noel Ignatiev, Urges White Male Suicide to Save the World by Trevor Louden: On the last day of his teaching career, as a parting shot at, Professor Noel Ignatiev, a tenured professor at Massachusetts College, told white  males to do the world a favor by killing themselves. If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! The Professor reported receiving “a standing ovation” from his “largely white and middle class students.” Noel Ignatiev’s … Continue reading

Thanksgiving in 2022

“Winston, come into the dining room, it’s time to eat,” Julia yelled to her husband. “In a minute, honey, it’s a tie score,” he answered.  Actually Winston wasn’t very interested in the traditional holiday football game between Detroit and Washington. Ever since the government passed the Civility in Sports Statute of 2017, outlawing tackle football for its “unseemly violence” and the “bad example it sets for the rest of the world,” Winston was far less of a football fan than he used to be. Two-hand touch wasn’t nearly as exciting. Yet it wasn’t the game that Winston was uninterested in. … Continue reading

High School Student Nails Common Core

From The Daily Caller via Infowars: This young man from Tennessee absolutely gets it. Watch him as he addresses the Knox County School Board. A Tennessee high school student spoke from personal experience when he gave a highly critical speech on Common Core at the Knox County School Board meeting earlier this month. Ethan Young, a senior at Farragut High School, recited the history of Common Core, beginning in 2009 when the National Governor’s Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, partnered with a nonprofit funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He said in his recorded speech that while the initiative “seemed to spring … Continue reading

OH, For A Rational Thought ! !

. Those of us who are bloggers and anyone who can comprehend a complete sentence will resonate with this College Professor. Canada Free Press has the story. America’s Achilles Heel   By Jimmy Reed (Bio and Archives) Monday, October 14, 2013 Recently, a civic organization asked me to be the guest speaker during their weekly luncheon. My ego being what it is, I accepted, even though final examinations were in progress at the small college where I teach. The man who introduced me is a bank president, and was one of my students at a community college many years ago. … Continue reading

Common Core Strikes Again

By Justin King at the Digital Journal Worksheet asks children to remove parts of the Bill of Rights A student in Bryant School District in Arkansas brought home a worksheet that presented her with a scenario that referred to the Bill of Rights as “outdated” and that as part of a special committee she would need to throw out two of the Amendments. The worksheet was handed out to Sixth grade students in a history class. According to the girl’s mother, Lela Spears, she has not received any government or civics classes and this was the first assignment dealing with the Constitution or … Continue reading

Jeb Bush: Common Core is the Least We Can Do

  From Human Events: State-driven Common Core is least we can do to accelerate student learning This piece was written exclusively for Human Events by Governor Jeb Bush.  I recently finished a fascinating new book by journalist Amanda Ripley called The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way. The comparisons in the book between American schools and those in higher performing countries were jarring, but not a wake-up call. We’ve had those for years, going back to Sputnik and then A Nation at Risk and now to continued poor performance on international tests – the most … Continue reading

Feds to Fund School Security Officers

From Fox News: Obama administration to allocate $45M for cops in schools The Obama administration plans to spend millions of dollars to place armed police officers in schools throughout the country in a move advocated by the National Rifle Association in the wake of last December’s shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn. The Department of Justice announced Friday it’s giving nearly $45 million to fund 356 new school resource officer positions. Funding will be provided by grants from the department’s Community Oriented Policing Services, or COPS, office. “Just over nine months after the senseless mass shooting at Sandy Hook, we remain … Continue reading

What the Hell’s the Matter with Maryland?

  The Daily Caller says: There’s really no question by now that entirely too many school administrators across America are crazy, drooling morons. However, school administrators in Maryland — and some teachers, and a few students — possess a special, possibly bionic blend of stupidity and lunacy. Let’s review the indisputable facts. Amazingly, all of these ridiculous incidents occurred in Maryland in the last several months alone. Just last week, Ellicott City parent Robert Small was violently arrested and charged with two crimes for expressing his frustrations about the implementation of the Common Core at a public forum Thursday night in … Continue reading

Lt. Gen. W.G. Boykin Warns of Engineered Economic Collapse, Martial Law, Dictatorship

In this video entitled “Marxism in America” General Jerry Boykin discusses his background and training in understanding Marxist insurgencies and how current government actions parallel Marxist tactics. (hat-tip new subscriber: Tom Schuckman) Boykin’s words are spot on but it would be nice if our asshat elected officials actually listened to us.  The blizzards of emails, telephone calls, letters, and faxes result in little if anything. Now after the latest mass shooting at the Navy yard in DC, Zero has pledged more Executive Orders regarding gun control. At the same time he has pledged more support for the Syrian rebels (Al-Qaeda) … Continue reading

California School to Monitor Students’ Social Media

From Drudge and CNN: Los Angeles (CNN) — A suburban Los Angeles school district is now looking at the public postings on social media by middle and high school students, searching for possible violence, drug use, bullying, truancy and suicidal threats. The district in Glendale, California, is paying $40,500 to a firm to monitor and report on 14,000 middle and high school students’ posts on Twitter, Facebook and other social media for one year.           Though critics liken the monitoring to government stalking, school officials and their contractor say the purpose is student safety. As classes … Continue reading
