*From the Press-Telegram [via AP] in Paramount CA: “The assistant principal at a California high school has been placed on leave after a campus talent show where male students pranced seductively in underwear and Speedos…” Was this ‘show and tell’? And these teachers are the ones who expect high pay and obtuse benefits for this?
*Fox News.com: “In final edits leading up to the vote, conservatives rejected language to modernize the classification of historic periods to B.C.E. and C.E. from the traditional B.C. and A.D. They also required that public school students in Texas evaluate efforts by global organizations such as the United Nations to undermine U.S. sovereignty. During the months’ long process of creating the guidelines, conservatives successfully strengthened the requirements on teaching the Judeo-Christian influences of the nation’s Founding Fathers and attempted to water down rationale for the separation of church and state…The standards will refer to the U.S. government as a “constitutional republic,” rather than “democratic,” and students will be required to study the decline in the value of the U.S. dollar, including the abandonment of the gold standard.”
[Me: The trouble with leaving the history writing to historians is that many are Liberal and they freely allow their Liberal ideology to drip into their writing. Besides, these are only guidelines, they aren’t the actual writing. The Liberal bias in schoolbooks has for years brought about the so-called ‘education’ of a bunch of Liberal non-thinkers. The worst of the lot show themselves here with their hatred and mis-educated thoughts. They aren’t evil, they’re just ignorant of truth and even-ness in society—like slavery. Most comments [on this article] I’ve seen are wrong. Slavery was wrong but it was accepted in society for a number of years. That doesn’t make it right. These people were educated into such a mindset, just like the Liberals of today were taught intolerance and incorrect history based on the leftist view.]
*Townhall.com [via AP by Christina Hoag]: “Next month’s opening [September 2010] of the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools will be auspicious for a reason other than its both storied and infamous history as the former Ambassador Hotel, where the Democratic presidential contender was assassinated in 1968…With an eye-popping price tag of $578 million, it will mark the inauguration of the nation’s most expensive public school ever…” And we wonder why education eats up so much money and produces so little in result. This type of spending is obscene, and it should never be repeated—even by a small percentage.
*Townhall.com [via Chuck Norris]: “The Arabic studies program — funded by a five-year, $1.3 million Foreign Language Assistance Program federal grant — was to begin this semester at Cross Timbers Intermediate School [TX] and then spread to neighboring schools in the Mansfield Independent School District. Thank God for the parental passions and patriot fires of the almost 200 parents who showed up at a meeting last week to question the wisdom of school officials. They are fighting in their own personal education Alamo and presently have the upper hand. For the moment, the school district has backed off plans for its Arabic studies program. With 14 percent of American adults (32 million) incapable of reading a newspaper or instructions on a prescription bottle, don’t you think federal monies could be put to better use by helping Americans learn to read and write English?..” Per Barbara Bush: ” ‘I’m against English as a second language. My great-grandmother came here as a German. She didn’t have someone give her English as a second language. She learned it in three months. It’s survival.’ ” — Common sense does sometimes prevail over the Third Worlder Liberals.
*sntp.com [Say No to Psychiatry]: “Modern education, especially as it exists in the government controlled public schools, has deteriorated continually over the past 100 years. There are no “education specialists” who aren’t now actually behavioral psychologists or psychiatrists. The field of psychology has very much taken over the public school system, and is doing its best to take over private schools. Through covert tactics, extensive lobbying efforts, and setting government mandated “educational standards”, even home-schooling may have to conform to the dictates of psychologists…”
[Me: Sadly, this rings the bell of truth.]
*Michelle Obama continues to speak out about fat and obesity, especially in children. Nevertheless, while in Aspen over Presidents Day Weekend she enjoyed a braised pork short-rib dinner, boasting of [meat only] 1575 calories, 142 grams of fat, and 287 grams cholesterol. I guess it’s still the old Liberal mantra: do as I say, not as I do.
*Obama claims to be a home brewer, but does he actually do the brewing? Probably not. His chefs are the ones doing it. Doesn’t that remove the process from the term ‘home brewing?’ If he or Michelle isn’t actually doing the work, then the 1978 law doesn’t apply. So. Does he have a liquor license like the micro-brewers must have? Does he pay all the federal and state taxes on the production? I doubt very much he does. Aren’t the chefs public employees? Isn’t he using them for personal aggrandizement? Shouldn’t he be prosecuted for breaking the law?
*All 3rd World Countries and the UN want the US to give money and aid all over the World for their benefits—whether disaster strikes or not. The UN wants to redistribute US money to other Countries who waste what they have. They assume the US is inexhaustibly rich. They assume wrong. Besides, why aren’t the Chinese handing out money left and right? Isn’t their economy booming? We’re headed towards an equalized World—everyone and every Country will be poor except China. Way to go oh Liberal thinking!
* There is a story on National Geographic Channel about a killer whale fighting and killing a great white shark in the ocean. The whale ate the shark’s liver and moved on. Where is the wrath of the Liberals? Compare that to a human hunting and killing a large animal, say a predatory lion or tiger, eating just the liver and leaving the body for the scavengers [who have to eat to live as well.]
In the latter case, the Liberal’s and media would be tripping over themselves to destroy the hunter, blaming it on the NRA, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and George Bush. It shows the lack of understanding of people and animals on this planet. In the Bible, God gives man dominion over all the animal life on Earth. Should we hunt down and destroy that killer whale for destroying another animal?
Should a man be excoriated for doing the same thing? Does having a choice condemn the man? Who knows the reasoning behind the whale’s attack? Of course man—us—should exercise caution and restraint in handling animals. But does that correlate with a man-eating predator? It’s not like there was a mass extinction—which by the way is the natural order. I believe something like 90% of all animal life ever on earth has become extinct. We may be responsible for some, but certainly so tiny a percentage of the total as to be miniscule. Our Liberal friends and animal lovers must get a grip and face reality. Human rights are not endowed upon other animals.
