EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN

November 6, 2019

In the very true and forthright words of Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos: “Every American family needs to open The Nation’s Report Card this year and think about what it means for their child and for our country’s future. The results are, frankly, devastating.” She continued, “This country is in a student achievement crisis, and over the past decade it has continued to worsen, especially for our most vulnerable students,” she added.

The “game changing” Obama legacy initiative known as Common Core that was introduced by former Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, has failed every child subjected to the system. A study by NEAP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) over a 7 year period (2010-2017) showed that Common Core teaching methods produced significant negative effects on 4th graders’ reading achievement and 8th graders’ math achievement. The study also showed that the negative effects tend to increase over time!

While academic scores continue to drop precipitously, the kids in K-12 public schools are learning the benefits of transgenderism, oral and anal sex for pregnancy prevention, gender confusion is one staple on which you can rely, protesting elevates celebrity, victimhood is the road to success and blaming white men for your failure is better than working to improve your station in life. They are not learning math, science, reading, English, world history, geography and civics to an extent that will benefit them in their lives beyond high school.

While some people want to throw more money at our failing public schools to continue the practice of indoctrinating over educating, others are seeking choice for students and caring parents. Granted, charter schools and home schooling take money from the public schools coffer, but they do teach the tools that help our youth become productive members of our society. Students of alternate schools must actually learn, accomplish and verify their knowledge rather than simply attend classes to pass and graduate.

Both traditional public schools and charter schools are funded through state and local tax dollars and enjoy tax exempt donations. The traditional schools also receive funding from the federal government. Home schooling via voucher receives federal money and charitable donations through community service organizations. Charter schools and home schooling are therefore forced to economically provide the educational services. Public schools, as with most government agencies, rely on myriad administrative levels absorbing the funding before the much much needed dollars ever meet the classroom.

The goal of education should be the benefit to the children, not the physical plant from which that education in meted. The cost of education should, and must, be commensurate with the value received by each and every student and the immediate or adjacent economic surroundings must be irrelevant.

As the national debt grows through unchecked deficit spending on unnecessary pork laden special interest projects and election reversal, it shows only that government inefficiency, graft and corruption is destroying our country and the future of its citizens. Education must be restored and enhanced for equitable prosperity and longevity.

THE PROBLEM WITH DOG WHISTLES

January 21, 2019

I will be the very first to admit my hearing is deficient. While I can hear hissing and crickets and birds chirping all day long, there are certain sounds that are beyond my receptive capabilities. It’s called nerve damage and tinnitus. Until recently I was bothered by what are supposed to be ultra-high frequency alarm systems when they were left on during the day in retail stores. Basically, I guess you could say, in the frequency range nearing that of a dog whistle. I could not, for instance, stay in K-mart longer than about 8 seconds before I had a headache. Dog whistles, however…can’t say that I’ve ever heard one.

What does it say about liberals that they are the only ones who can hear “dog whistles”. To them, dog whistles connote racism, xenophobia, sexism, etc. But they, liberals, are the only people on earth who can hear and define the “ism” or “phobia”.

A liberal can apparently hear one of their dog whistles in virtually every scene, sentence or word. In particular, if a liberal says something absolutely foolish regarding a person of color and you correct him or her or Ze, you are racist. If a sane person attempts to reason with a liberal and present facts that do not support a particular wacko theory, they will immediately hear a dog whistle for an ism or phobia. Should you say “sir” to a person with a stubble, Adam’s apple, large biceps and extended breasts your dog whistle connotes trans-phobia.

The perception of liberals is transcendental within their limited world. Even some of their own kind get caught up in the loop of insanity. Today they are picking apart conversations gone and forgotten for the past ten and twenty years to find something that they can call offensive to someone somewhere. Yet, they fail to recognize their own transgressions of the moment. E.g. saying black lives matter is commendable but saying all lives matter somehow diminishes the value of black lives as if they are not part of the whole. These are the very people who claim equality and seek inclusiveness.

Raw cotton on stems caused hysteria to a liberal Texas woman because 160 years ago slaves were made to pick cotton by hand. She saw racism in the floral display at Hobby Lobby. To secure our southern border and preserve law, order and national independence for our country, President Trump is decried as a xenophobe. The dog whistle is obvious only to his vehement opponents.

One ignorant civil rights attorney, Areva Martin (black liberal) <link>, made a call to the radio talk show of David Webb (a black conservative). Knowing him only as a conservative talk show host, she mistakenly called out his “white privilege”(stereo-typically only white people can be conservative). David courteously corrected her and let her know that his hard work and qualifications gained him his position, not the color of his skin. Did the liberals hear a dog whistle in that conversation? Nope! Their hearing, collectively, was immediately as poor as my own.

And that my friends is the problem with dog whistles. They only occur when convenient to liberals. I guess there are no conservative dogs. If you believe anything different, you are a walking, breathing dog whistle no matter what your sex, gender, chosen gender or ethnic background You are despicable, deplorable and not worthy of taking up space on this earth.

PROMOTING “TDS”

August 1, 2018

Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a real and present mental health problem. TDS is now being treated by health care professionals under the name of Trump Anxiety Disorder because derangement is a negative term. The use of negative terms in today’s society is, in itself, enough to trigger highly emotional reactions that require professional mental health therapy.

It is a product of at least four decades of public indoctrination centers promoting liberalism. Fragilizing (coined term) society is a primary mission for the “institutions of education”. By distorting language terms to soften their effectiveness allows for exploitable ambiguity. For example: Steering youth first, then adults, from using terms such as boy/man and girl/woman to gender neutral terms like person homogenizes the individual. Removing a person’s individuality removes any incentive to excel or even succeed. Highest honor awards are perceived to demean all lesser colleagues and therefore every attendee must receive a trophy or certificate of participation without ranking.

The aggregation of youth held captive and brainwashed for three quarters of each year over a 12+ year time frame are those most affected by the psychological vexation. Social engineering to societal neutrality destroys personal incentive and self worth. Without self worth, adolescents are prone to extreme anger, suicide or sustained drug use to compensate for their lack of uniqueness.

This is contradictory to what our current president presents. His ideals include working hard, accomplishing, achieving and appreciating and respecting the outcomes. To younger generations, this is opposite of what they’ve been fed throughout their school years. They only know that they are equal and they deserve…without effort. They matriculated through their early years by showing up for class, at least by attending fairly regularly. Their testing, if any occurred, was graded not on correct answers or knowledge of the subject at hand, but on the student’s ability to embrace and regurgitate the personal viewpoints on the subject expressed by the teacher.

The aforementioned societal equality is why the X, Y (aka: Millennial) and Z (aka: Centennial) generations are so inclined toward socialism. They are used to having everything handed to them without putting forth any effort to achieve on their own. They believe (because they’ve been programmed to believe) that equality is a right. They cannot understand, because they cannot recognize through abstract thought process, that equality for all is truly subsistence for all. Further yet, there is a reluctance to accept that equality for all is a false and undeniably Utopian ideal.

Every societal structure has an elite governing body. With socialism and communism that elite body distributes and redistributes any wealth available among the recipients. That body of elites, due to human nature, will always take a bit more for themselves, leaving less for redistribution. Socialism is the elimination of any middle class, not all classism. Socialism, at it’s best, is the production of two very discordant classes.

The political bent of the majority of public school teachers and college professors and instructors is constantly projected into the malleable minds of those whom they are charged with educating. Where once the schools promoted “work hard and be all you can”, the new slogan might be “sloth in and be whatever you claim you are”. Additionally, what the kids of today get out of school is low self esteem and the ability to identify as a victim for any reason they deem. True education is a wayward by-product of the liberal mind molding process.

Given the upbringing of the ascendants to adulthood and those of recent adulthood there is little question why they consider President Trump a foreboding and threatening figure. He expects performance and excellence and he therefore threatens everything they have been led to believe about themselves, society and governing. He is extremely individual. No president has ever acted in such a non-presidential way. He is a leader, not a follower. He makes things happen rather than awaiting happenings then blaming others for inadequate outcomes or accepting unexpected consequences as within the realm of normal. He asks that we all participate in our lives and livelihoods. His very existence triggers the social fragility produced by progressives.

Because he was born before the liberal mania took firm hold, President Trump is considered a deviation from what has become the norm. He wants and expects adherence to laws that keep us safe and maintain social order. He treats others (individuals and countries) equally and fairly…perhaps heavy handed at times, but equally and he expects others to reciprocate. Going along to get along is not the way of a Commander in Chief who produces positive outcomes.

Because he is a leader, because he deviates from political protocol, he is upsetting a component of society that only knows a soft and gentle life. He is triggering a segment of society that cannot handle any adversity. There are members (almost a cult) within our culture so used to taking a pill or seeking professional coddling to allay their self induced fears and frustrations that they cannot even stand to hear the name Trump without physically assaulting someone, breaking something or setting something aflame that does not belong to them. And, they expect to do so without repercussion for they’ve been taught throughout their formative years that violent civil disobedience is acceptable when they feel they’ve been wronged or believe something negative might be in their future.

This is truly a derangement, but it is not President Trump’s fault. The progressives who have fragilized our children and grandchildren under authority of the public education system are to blame. They are the ones responsible for the suicides and violence and dissociative behavior of the current and past three generations. It is the ideologues in charge of teaching our children who are causing them to become deranged.

Yes, there is a Trump Derangement Syndrome. It is real. It is promoted by our education system and the media that seeks only negative and announces every nuanced or perceived pessimistic action performed or word spoken by an adversary. It is not just Trump, TDS or anxiety disorder, is now excited by any deviation from a progressive mindset.

MEDICATIONS AND MASS MURDERS

February 19, 2018

Nikolas Cruz, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass murderer, was on medication to deal with “emotional fragility”.

Those who have read my previous writings on this subject are well aware of my take on synthetic pharmaceuticals. I am not a doctor or a pharmacist. I am a civilian citizen who is concerned about the number and types of things we are seduced into ingesting in the name of health.

I’ve been called out by medical model professionals of various disciplines who say that the benefits of FDA approved drugs far outweigh the negatives. To which I ask, “Yeah, what about all the violence and suicides committed by those on medications?” “Would those violent acts still have occurred without the mind altering introductions?” (Hypothetical because we’ll never know.)

Though the concentration today is on medications to overcome the symptoms of anxiety and depression, they are not my only concern. I have friends and relatives on as many as 19 drugs taken regularly…most commonly every day. Some of the drugs are to counter the side effects of the drugs taken to allay the side effects caused by other medications that are taken to mask the symptoms of a root problem.

In my view, synthetic pharmaceuticals are too often prescribed to move a patient out the door so that the doctor can record another patient visit. Most synthetic pharmaceuticals do nothing more than hide the symptoms of illnesses rather than treat or remedy the underlying problem. Some, if not all, have a list of “potential” negative side effects which are far worse than the problem displaying the symptoms they are meant to overcome. All too often, there is little in-depth monitoring of the patient’s reactions to the prescribed panacea.

Stephen Paddock, now of Las Vegas fame, was on Diazepam. According to the FDA, diazepam can produce “confusion, withdrawal symptoms, euphoria, increased anxiety, panic, irritability, delirium, aggressiveness/aggression, numbed emotions, instability, restlessness, agitation, inappropriate behavior, delusions, rage, hallucinations, nightmares, confusional or paranoid psychosis/psychoses” in up to 10 percent of users (and that estimate might be generously low).

Drugs.com offers some answers to the horror of today’s society. Click on “A to Z drug list”, pick a letter, a drug, then scroll down to side effects and scare the hell out of yourself.

Almost every one of the mass killers and teen suicides of the past two decades have been using prescribed synthetic pharmaceuticals with horrendous potential side effects. A few well-known names associated with mass atrocities that you may recall are: Prozac, Ritalin, Effexor, Celexa, Paxil, Zoloft, Welbutrin. Those are the names of the real killers.

While the direct weapon most commonly used is a firearm, the list of multiple killings and suicides range among ropes, cars, trucks, knives, ice picks, baseball bats, 2x4s, hammers, screw drivers, machetes, explosives and on and on. Whatever is available when the medication kicks in becomes an instrument of choice.

THE PROGRESSIVE HEAD FAKE

January 18, 2018

They did it to President Johnson in 1965. They did it to President Reagan in 1986 with approximately 3 million illegal aliens and they apparently just did it again with President Trump. “Give me what I want, and I promise to think about what you have suggested you would like to have happen”. Then, as soon as the left gets what they want, in whole and in all parts, they seemingly forget the second portion of the agreement. Worse yet, they want and expect even more concessions before complying with the remaining portions of the original request.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!

Over the years, “comprehensive immigration reform” has been bandied about as a negotiating point, political tool or a weapon but that is as far as it has been carried by either party. Now progressives want DACA certified as a stand alone program. After the occurrence of such, they claim willingness to “work on” comprehensive immigration reform. To progressives, however, comprehensive means vague language that allows entitlement, nurturing and amnesty for foreigners illegally in the country and the extended family members they choose to include in the future. Progressives do it again and again and our semi-conservative legislators, blindly believing the best in people, dupe themselves.

This time around the subject is about 800,000 young people (some now upwards of 30 years old) who have taken advantage of multiple entitlement programs including free K-12 education that they barely understand. Fewer than half are proficient in English and have little intention or desire to assimilate into the American culture. They carry flags from the countries to which they still owe allegiance and prefer conversing in foreign languages. Though they have chosen to separate themselves from their family members in order to receive American entitlements, they expect us to welcome not just their offspring but extended clan and teach, train and provide for them as well.

This is the DACA program. By mindfully granting 800,000 young and innocent foreigners the opportunity to take advantage of taxpayers, President Obama set the course for an unquenchable thirst of millions. It is the Cloward and Piven plan to overwhelm the welfare and economic systems carried to the Nth degree.  The current president and congress are now left to deal with this exasperating and untenable situation.

If you agree with those who want legalization for 800,000 DACA grantees or if you are on the fence regarding the issue, please click on the link below and read the article written in 2010. Though it was written during the dictatorial and over-lording reign of President Obama, the last 2/3 of it is as applicable today as it was then.

In 1965, the Immigration and Nationality Act (aka the Hart-Cellar Act), changed our immigration system to allow a more diverse population to legally enter the United States. It was gracious and humanitarian but did not adequately address the influx of illegal entrants to our nation. That was over 50 years ago.

More recently (only 32 years ago) President Ronald Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. There was a promise to effectively control the illegal traffic at our borders and shorelines after granting amnesty to some 3 million people, but again that pledge was never to come about.

Over the past 118 years since 1900, there have been over 30 major structural changes to the way immigration is handled in the United States. None of them addresses illegal entry with punishment harsh enough to prevent it or even curtail it. Our “leaders” keep allowing the problem to grow and fester then say it is too massive to be handled all at once. Thus, we need “comprehensive reform” that can be forgotten at time of funding and long thereafter.

This is a can so dented from kicking that it can no longer be identified as a once valued container. “Comprehensive” is overwhelming and that is exactly why it stalemates every attempted conversation. There must be a starting point and logical order to address the problem. That starting point is: border walls with limited and safeguarded entry points, along with cyber, aerial, radar and infrared detection at all points of possible entry, air, land and sea.

Our boat is sinking and this is no time to test the potability of the water flooding in. We must plug the holes and bail the excess before we all drown. We can no longer massage and modify our immigration laws to comply with the wishes of people from around the globe  wanting to remake our nation in the image of the countries they dislike enough to leave behind.

This is not about racism as the left wants to inject into every conversation.  This is about protecting our infrastructure; our economy, our industry, our educational institutions and our democratic republic as a whole.

Only after securing our borders and shorelines to protect the nation from further invasion of insurgents willing to overtake and transform our democratic republic and deporting the intruders with alternative allegiance, can we undertake measures to simplify our legal immigration system. And, we can no longer allow progressives to undermine our sovereignty.
