Fundamentally Backwards

Prima facie tax cheat/Education Secretary Arne Duncan (If you are a member of the Obama administration, you are a “prima facie tax cheat”.. With the liberal “I say it, therefore it is” kind of intellectual deliberation, all Obama goons and zombies are guilty until proven innocent, Period..) is now a “man on a mission”. He wants to “hear” what teachers, students and parents have to say about the “No Child Left Behind Act”. “Listening” has proven quite profitable for the leftists ever since the “I feel your pain” days of the last liberal lecher.. “Listening” and “doing” are two altogether different things within the cesspool of socialism and what they end up “doing” seldom has any resemblance to the “promises” that they made..

According to the article entitled, “Obama Preps Overhaul of No Child Left Behind”, it’s time to “renew and reform” the law, according to Arne and Obama has “pledged” to “overhaul” the law.. As has been the case for the entirety of the “Hundred Days War” declared by Obama and his sycophants upon what was once the United States of America, “he has been vague about how far he would go..” Shall we use just a few recent “examples” of the “Obama overhauls” as a template for this “pledge” and possibly “how far he would go?”

How about the “overhaul” of General Motors and Chrysler where the unions were rewarded with a 55% controlling interest of the Chrysler CORPORATION.. (What could go wrong there? Can you say “payoff” for services rendered? I knew you could..) What about the Obama “overhaul” of the banking system where corporations were forced to take TARP monies regardless of the solvency of their companies.. With these two examples alone as your guide to the progressive pattern, morning calisthenics and Little Red Book recitations under a mural of America’s “Dear Leader” aren’t too far behind for the public school saplings..

“I don’t know if ‘scrap’ is the word” according to Arne. If Obama is involved in any way, shape or form, “crap” is the word most befitting his contribution.. “Where things make sense, we’re going to keep them. Where things don’t make sense, we’re going to change them”. There’s that “change” thing again, every time that you hear it, all of your money including your “change” seems to disappear into the hands of the collectivists for redistribution to the recalcitrants..

The Obama administration like all liberal fascist forms of government strongly believes in “No Child Left Behind.” Unfortunately, the “child” in their scenario is invariably a thirty five-year-old, perfectly capable “victim” of the liberal caliphate’s perpetual methodology of “woe-is-me-ism”, a progressive puling that the left insists upon diapering to generation after generation.. The “real” children in the Obama “reformed Act” will take second place to another union bracing for a “Chrysler-esque” payoff, the trolls of the NEA..

Moderate George Bush forwarded the No Child Act which immediately came under fascist fire by the liberals and their wounded NEA members as they claimed that “it would cause the states to lower their official standards..” With the NEA in charge of the Democratic Party and the dystrophic public schools for decades, it seems odd that this argument would be the one that they would use. Then again, who else would know better than the NEA about “lowering official standards” as their trademarked technique in this area has been perfected over the last fifty years. The fastest track to the lowest class is now via the public schools, all with the approval of the enthusiastic enablers of the Democratic Party who control the permanent parasites and the burgeoning bottom feeders..

Even a moderate hoping to impress the liberal left by actually bringing about a “change” in the results produced by the public schools gets a socialist slap down for actually TRYING. Trying to bring about “results” from a public school system invaded by the insipid indoctrination of the fatalism of failure. Surprisingly, the tests were “suspect”, simply because the “results” proved that both the “students” and the NEA were incapable of producing “results” of a positive nature.

The “No Child Act” because of its focus upon a “narrow curriculum” and such painful materials such as reading, writing and mathematics not only caused “childhood obesity” but it supplanted the “arts”, “music” and “foreign languages”.. Judging by what the NEA has produced in the last fifty years, English itself is a “foreign language” within the corridors of the public schools. Even a moderate can’t “Do the right thing” in the eyes of the left who have yet another group of constituents looking for a personal payoff on behalf of “the kids”..

“Furthermore in our country, we can’t sweep the huge disparities with outcomes between white children and Latino children (Speak and teach English in America, problem solved..) and African American children (Speak and teach English, problem solved..) we can’t sweep those under the rug ever again.” Reality check, Arne: the ones holding the brooms are the progressive poltroons and the ones holding the rug up are the weasels of the NEA.

“Critics” said that the law was “too punitive” because “more than a third of schools failed to meet yearly progress goals last year.” The problem just had to be the TESTS.. In this wonderfully refreshing era of “change” can we jettison the jokers of the NEA as well as the pandering progressives and bring about a bit of competition with a voucher system which will definitively benefit the lowest class by allowing them the “freedom” to “choose”? “Choose” to the left, only involves the “choice” of the sensitively applied saline solutions to a fetus or the euthanizing of the infirm and “freedom” hasn’t been a part of the liberal vernacular for the better part of fifty years..

First Arne says that the law pushes schools to improve test scores each year (outrageous!!) and that the law was “absolutely loose on goals” and “they were very tight on how you get there..” Arne said that that was “fundamentally backwards”. Again, no one other than a liberal has a better understanding of what it means to be “fundamentally backwards”.. I suppose the fact that the NEA has stood in the way of the whole “how you get there” part made the “loose on goals” part unobtainable which of course, had to be the fault of the Act..

Now Arne says that the Obama derelicts will be “tight” on the goals, insisting “on more rigorous standards that are uniform across the states..” Here the socialist semantics gets intertwined within itself. If the problem was “loose goals” before, how will “tight goals” make a difference? Wasn’t “meet yearly progress goals” “tight” enough? The idea of being “uniform” has to excite that fifth columnists and the idea of being “very tight, very prescriptive on how you get there” may satisfy the liberal urge towards jack boot conformity, but how does that eliminate the possibility of “teaching to the test” if “results” are suddenly important to a group that has fought for decades to eliminate “outcome based” education? As always, words have no meaning, but the left “cares about the children”..

“What Duncan means by “tight” and “loose”, the administration has offered few clues..” There hasn’t been an article about the filthy fascists in the last hundred days that HASN’T mentioned their lack of specifics.. Everyone always gets the gory details when it is too late.

It is always “reported” that “No Child” has made “modest gains” due to “unprecedented attention”. (and unprecedented amounts of tax dollars) Regardless of the excuses generated by the degenerates of the left and the NEA, the element missing from the Obama take over of the schools will be “application”. Those who chose to apply themselves can overcome the carcinogenic touch of both the NEA and the disgusting liberals. The only thing that the left “teaches” its slackers and loafers is that they will indefinitely underwrite you as long as you agree to permanently wear the shackles of liberalism.

Talk about being “fundamentally backwards”..

    Family,

    This is what I meant when I said that the left needs to be watched at all times.

    A little story slips under the radar screen as the left bellows about the “pandemic” of Swine Flu (ten deaths WORLDWIDE)

    Each of them have assignments to divert and to subvert, not just Obama..

    Be vigilant.

    Never give up, never give in and never again.

  2. The only way the UAW got controlling interest is because Sultan Obama moved them to the front of the bankruptcy line – ahead of the hedge fund companies that house our 401k money.
    Union saps voted for Obama.
    401k folks did not.

    The schools will never be “right” until they produce prodigies that all vote “correctly”.

  3. Larry,

    Great article……as aways.

    The public school system went amuck when the unions took over. The statistics proove it. While not totally successful, “no child” brought some improvement.

    Public schools are i n the hands of left-wingd progressives who are bent on destroying traditionl values and leading young minds towads the acceptance of fascism and deviant behavior.

  4. It was only a matter of time before the Self-Anointed One’s administration focused on what used to be the school system. It appears that left now has complete control of the nation’s Indoctrination centers!
    Is it any wonder that the government wants to put an end to home-schooling?

  5. noleftturnz

    Hey Stitch,

    Wasn’t the “offer” (demand) 20 cents on the dollar for people like you and I so that the union could get this sweetheart deal?

    Those who “invested” in Chrysler were portrayed as the bad guys and the unions who may not have been driving the get away car, but they sure as Hell were in the back seat, are the heroes?

    They are heroes to the Obama caliphate due to their status as “voting booth lemmings”..

    Thus their reward or “payoff”..

    NEVER buy Chrysler again. Stocks or cars..

    Louise,

    Fear not..

    Though the third graders (eighth graders for that matter..) may not be able to read, they will know how to apply condoms to cucumbers..

    If they do know how to read at all it will be because the only book available is “Heather has two mommies”.

    The destruction of the foundation that was the public schools underscores the liberal agenda to destroy America as a “world power”.

    Thus the “need” for a “world economy”.

    Any turd world imbecile who refuses to speak English but somehow understands the welfare system (and the anchor baby system) is welcomed by the left regardless of their legality (“No one is illegal” “No woman is illegal” Rodham.) is welcomed as a hero by the liberals. Another step in the destruction of America as a “super power”.

    They are “transparent”. They have been so for fifty years.

    Get active.

    Todd,

    Home schooling, like the voucher system, represents a threat to the liberal monopoly in the public schools.

    Remember when Reagan told the air traffic controllers who were striking ILLEGALLY to get back to work? He fired each and every one of them. As difficult as the job appears to be, no one died, no crashes, just a new work force who wouldn’t ILLEGALLY STRIKE.

    Who will step up and fire these useless NEA leeches? Standardized tests, study, results. All of these “tenured” lousy NEA “teachers” might make good real estate agents or trash men (sorry, trash persons..) or fire men..

    Competition is good. Microsoft was a “monopoly” that WORKED and the government stepped in to bust it up (ATT as well.) This MONOPOLY DOESN’T work and the government seeks to reinforce it every day.

    As I said, “Do the world a favor, plant a liberal”

  8. actually, they were offered 29 cents on the dollar.
    Going into bankruptcy, they were first in line for dispursement of what was left of Chrysler (because the loaned ALMOST ALL of the money to them). So they could have held out for 100 cents on the dollar (ie, ALL the money owed them), but the fund managers counteroffered 50 cents on the dollar.
    Obama wouldn’t take it because the UAW would NOT have been in control of the company.
    So, Obama simply violated the law.
    He FORCED the bankruptcy judge to put the UAW pension plan at the head of the line.
    The pension plan now owns 55% of Chrysler, and the unions manage the pension plan.
    Therefore, my dear Watson, the unions control 55% of Chrysler.

    NEVER buy Chrysler products.

    But, they DO NOT CARE!
    This is NOT about saving Chrysler.
    This is about forcing it to die, but making sure the pensioners get their money, and the hell with the rest of us 401k investors.
    Chrysler’s days are numbered, and they know it.
    This is there way of taking care of the pensioners, which I am not opposed to, but its LIES that bother me.
    Our “loans” to Chrysler were nothing more than a means to and end – restock the union pensions with fresh cash, then let Chrysler DIE.

    Lesson learned: you people OUTSIDE the unions, with all your 401k retirement funds, well look at them now.
    All it takes is a crooked president (sultan) willing to violate the law, threaten companies, attorneys, and judges, and your entire life’s savings are wiped out.
    BUT, the union folks get special protection.

    I will look for the union label on every product.
    Not only will I NOT buy it, but I will damage that product so NO ONE will buy it.

    BOYCOTT ALL UNION GOODS!

    And the funny thing about all this; those UAW idiots actually think they’re going to have a job next year…..HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
    They better go buy a decent pair of work gloves.
    Come next summer, they’ll be raking leaves in inner-city vacant lots “earning” some Obama Chump-CHANGE!.

  11. Completely agree, Larry. Great read once again. And, let’s not forget about HR1388 – The Give Act (please). Yep, mandatory community service is just around the corner.

    Graywolf,

    PRECISELY!!

    The liberals have devalued the idea of a high school diploma to the point that it has become “mandatory” for everyone to get a “college degree”. The OLD high school diploma is the eqivalent to at least a two year degree, however..

    While at “college” the complete marination in the liberal mythology can be completed.

    Watch each and every single liberal.

    Larry

  14. Maybe the NEA could teach our fantastically intelligent, superbly educated, unbeieveablely competent POUS the difference between have and got.He is the worste public speaker in the Kremlin on the Patomic. I notice no college is bragging that he graduated from their hallowed halls. His speech prof. should have been fired. Very fitting article Larry.

  15. noleftturnz

    Graywolf,

    His actual “transcripts” are a matter of conjecture as are a number of other elements of the Obama past.

    THAT is what has been swept under the rug..

    More silence from the duplicitous media.

    Thanks for the kind words,

    Larry

    j9,

    Even the perverted progressive Clinton tried to get this whole “Peace Corps redux” thing going.

    You and I know that the spoiled brats of the liberal left will not sully themselves with menial labor.

    It’s another symbolic liberal pipe dream that ends up as another waste of copy paper..

    I’ll admit that the bill is a typical hilariuos liberal reader..

    It even includes kids who “run away from home” and those “medically underserved”..

    I’ll say it again: “Do the world a favor: plant a liberal”.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  17. GrayWolf, I took this test two years ago that I found on the Internet. I have an accounting degree from collage, and I failed also!

    I emailed people, along with the test, the exact same statement you made about “just an eighth-grade test”!

    (And I made mostly straight “A”s in high school! Both my parents were teachers, and I was able to read and write, and could do my multiplication tables, before I even entered the first grade!)

  18. Oops! I goofed! I meant “eighth-grade education” instead! I had “test” ingrained in my brain at that moment.

  19. I have taken the liberty of copying Joe’s post of yesterday on the “Splitting Hairs” Thought of the Day, and correcting and inserting the rest of the Obama URL that he mistakenly left off. I think it is that important for everybody in the NLTZ community to read it. Here is his post, with the URL corrections.

    “There is an early accounting of Obama’s rising. Yea, though it not be a spiritual lifting in Obama, Thy kindom come, Thy will be done as the liberal locksteps would have us believe.

    This report by, Todd Spivak, a young writer who knew Obama before Obama became a senator in Illinois, gives an insight to the man we have as president today. A lengthy read but worth the time.

    http://www.houstonpress.com/2008-02-28/news/barack-obama-screamed-at-me/.”

    (It took me about 7 minutes to read it. Absolutely stunning reading, and worth every word!)

  20. Larry & Gang:
    Age – 73
    Household income: approx. 18,000 in a good year
    Never had a welfare payment, food stamp, etc.
    Never an unemployment check
    Best single year earnings – $12,000
    (and that was for one year only, in the seventies)
    Self-built one log home in the nineties, lost it and all possessions to a fire (uninsured)..
    Built a second (self & spouse) mostly complete save for some ‘inside’ work like final flooring.

    above just a bit of ‘background’…

    Obama’s S.S. administration has notified me that I am going to be sent this month a cheque for $250. of YOUR money, because things are so tough, and he wants me to help stimulate the economy..

    My problem (I need the family’s advice on this), is whether to send the funds to some worthwhile place like The Heritage Foundation, (where it will likely be spent on further teaching of Conservative values)
    or:
    Purchase one of those $500/pr. French made ‘sneakers’ (there’s a good word) that Michelle wears…

    Quandary:
    Do I get one for the Left foot, to indicate my “feel your pain” support of the ‘poor’?

    Or do I get one for the Right foot, to indicate my support of the ‘world economy’?

    Need help here, gang!

  21. Larry, you’ve done it again!

    Stirling, you have me laughing so hard, it feels good.

    I have felt there has been a conspiracy to “uneducate” students since the 70’s.

    The only ones who have a chance possess an intrinsic value of knowledge, and they will learn inspite of anyone or anything, and will hopefully be given exposure to appropriate books, etc. until they can learn these skills themselves.

    In NC governor perdue recently announced a .5% paycut for teachers and a forced 10-day furlough without pay that can only be taken on days students are not in school. Makes me a little smug when a teacher’s union craps on its own and doesn’t provide any opposition.

    In my experience, many eachers/administrators don’t belong around children. And it will only get worse.

    I advocated for kids in adacemic risk in an indifferent system for 14 years – armed with the Dept of Educations EDGAR regulations, NCDPI regulations, local board policy and school policy. Another person and I teamed up, attended school meetings with parents, requested complete student records, compared them to what “should be there”, advocated for the kids, and when that failed, wrote complaints, held workshops, appeared before an Administrative Law judge once.

    Many parents are afraid to stand up, in my experience. The kids fall into learned avoidance.

    It sickens me to think of further deterioration of education, not to mention the brainwashing that will go on.

    It seems all the public schools do is count breathing bodies 8 times a day to collect funding based on ADM – average daily membership.

    Guess we need to storm the house and senate with emails again… and the government funding all student loans and requiring national service to attend college.

    This insanity has to stop. The good ole USA needs to stand up firmly and loudly.

  22. I am neither a Republican (Rep) nor Democrat (Dem), so I get to criticize both. The Dems want big government (the more the merrier) and believe that government, at whatever level, is the answer to all of what ails us. The Reps, at least, used to believe in small government. The government, under Bush, grew more than almost any other time. Unfortunately it does not matter who is in power, they are both corrupt, incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial (I always wanted to say incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial). So far as I can tell, there has not been a program or law, ever conceived by government that has worked, i.e., done what it was supposed to do, at or under budget. Most of the time, the Dems just throw more money at a failing(ed) program (probably it was their idea in the first place and just cannot bring themselves to admit that they were wrong). From the Rep point of view, I am not sure why they do not try to cancel programs that have failed. Maybe they are too busy trying to make the rich richer. I do not know for sure.

    It is like a temporary tax [no such thing]. It becomes permanent. Recent bailouts that haven’t worked and some are wanting even more money or the recent and on-going war in Iraq. Moslem extremists are the all over the world. What was Bush thinking, if he thought at all, attack the whole world—literally WWIII. No country can stop their extremists.

    No Child left behind was a Bush Cabinet idea (Secretary Margaret Spelling). She did this in Texas when she worked for then Governor Bush, first and then she forced it on all of the states when she became Sec of Education. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science, not education.

    Some have said since the unions took over (blaming the teachers’ unions apparently). I say that since the Federal Government took over in the 60s or 70s, American education has gone into the toilet. I question the need for a Sec of Education. I think it was Bush I and the then Governors of the respective states that set a goal of being number 1 in Math and 1 in Science, in the world, by 2000, back in 1989. As of a couple of years ago (2006) we were 17th in Science and 24th in Mathematics, out of 30 countries. I just heard on the news that we are still 24th in Mathematics but have dropped to 21st in Science. This is after 8+ years of No Child Left Behind (that being 9 years after the goal date of 2000 and almost 20 years after setting the goal, 1 out of 6 or 8 depending on when you check). We used to be number 1 in these, I think, many years ago. This is what Obama is pushing, saying education is important for our future. Well, Obama you’ve got a long way to go. Another glowing program/Act of Congress from our government. Yeah, right. It is ironic that when we did not worry about world rankings we did Ok and did better.

    Clearly, No Child Left Behind has not helped in achieving 1st in Mathematics and Science. If scores have improved it is likely that they are teaching to the test and little else.

    Pesonally I am against teaching to the test.

  23. Stirling,

    Use the money to make a sign that says 2 things:
    First, that this sign was paid for with that money.
    Second, how much you disapprove of wasteful spending.

    Stirling,

    Heritage would be a good place for an “investment”.

    Anywhere where the goals are the polar opposite of what the liberal Obama minions are producing..

    I would steer clear of any “purchase” where the inevitable “sales taxes” might end up in the hands of the liberal demons.

    I am sure that they will expect you to claim this “windfall profit” on your taxes next year.

    A “chariable” donation to a conservative cause allows you to write the amount off on your taxes, unless there was some loophole where the money which was “given” to you by the benevolent Bolsheviks still HAS to be claimed as income regardless of what you do with it.

    I believe one of our family prepares taxes, what says the expert on this topic?

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  25. Stirling, you can get one (right of course!) and hit the Obamas upside their liberal heads with it. Michelle Obama is a communist cow who should just go away.

    Larry,
    This is only one of the myriad reasons I send my kids to private school. Yes, it costs money, yes, we have to do without many material things, but its worth it in the end. All the public schools here in the Socialist State of NY celebrated “Cinco de Mayo” yesterday, yet they weren’t allowed to celebrate Christmas this past December for fear of “offending” someone. So they made it “Generic Holiday” month. It’s detestable.

  26. Arlan Sphincter (T-Pa).
    Go ahead, ask me what the “T” stands for.
    He was always a …. JACKASS.

    C’mon folks, the demonrats will never let the ghettos turn into ghost towns.
    The public school system is DESIGNED to make sure they can’t leave.
    This is the CORE voting base (and I do mean BASE).

    Nope, just ‘ax’ Rufus, what you get when you add one and one.

  27. I just found out that I am NOT getting the stimulus check since I don’t live in the states. Funny thing about that, (not really funny…), if the government had not taken 3 years to figure out that I really am handicapped, I would still own my home…, it was move here where my husband had an apartment, or be homeless… I am just thankful that I was married!
    Anyway, sounds like my surgery will be in a couple weeks! Say a little prayer if you don’t mind.
    Thanks!

  28. Stirling,

    Welcome to No Left TurnZ!

    My Mother, being a decade older than you, also received the gracious gratuity from The Burnt One. She thought she’d save it to help offset the rise in cost of her electricty once Obama’s cap and trade bill is pushed through.

    I told her that I would rather see her, as you suggested, investing the money in a pair of shoes. However, unlike you, not in ‘sneakers’, as I had suggested steel toe boots. Just in case the opportunity ever arose where she came close enough she could plant a boot where the Libidinous Liberal would require the services of an ice pack and talk in higher voice than Michelle for weeks after.

  29. noleftturnz

    Michele,

    I did the same. The investment was well worth it.

    I just consider them the public “stools”..

    Thanks as always,

    EVERY time the Republicans try to kill a stupid program, the Demos go out and find the fattest, blackest, woman they can with the most chillen and put her on their propoganda networks (NBC, CBS, MSNBC) wailing about how she’s going to “die” if they do this.
    That “rich get richer” crap can no longer apply to the Republicans.
    Seems that F&F CEOs walked away with $100 MILLION between them, BOTH big contributors to the Demo party. And, both working directly under (ewww) Barney FFFFrank (Demo).
    $420 MILLION (and counting!!) to the AIG execs, most of them kicking money back to the Demos.
    Nancy “porcelain puss” Pelosi is worth $100 MILLION – – – AND COUNTING.
    Al “sky is falling” Gore is worth $100 MILLION – – – AND COUNTING.
    BOTH of them, and MOST of the Demos, own TONS of stock in all those backwater alternative energy companies.
    The same companies that are about to get BILLIONS in federal funding.
    NOTHING will come out of these companies, but their stocks will sure as hell go up and up and up.
    And who is standing there with their arms open wide to cash in their stocks?
    Pelosi, Dodd, Reid, Obama (Michele), Schumer, Frank, etc, etc)
    Remember the tech stock crash from the 90’s?
    Get ready for the “green” crash.
    But by then, these profiteers will be retired, sitting on a beach, earning 20%.

    The war on terrorism is/was global. Much much more than we realize.
    Financial institutions around the world changed the way they do business so we can track the money.
    Money is what keeps the terrorists in business.
    All our friends and allies around the world (yes! including France), collected and shared information on the movement and whereabouts of terrorists within their borders).

    When it comes to ranking our kids against the rest of the world, consider this:
    If you took the largest city in each of the 50 states out of the equation, all the rest of the school districts are second to none in the world in math, science, and reading.
    Question: who is in those largest cities and who is controlling them?

    The teachers union is DIRECTLY to blame for the downward spiral of the inner-city schools.
    Asking a student what are some of the possible answers to 2 + 2, is far different than teaching them what 2 + 2 actually IS.
    With liberals its all about “feelings”, not FACTS.

    The ONLY ones who ‘teach to the tests’ are the ones who want to get that silly crap out of the way, so they can get back to brainwashing the kids about their utopian one-world government under the benevolent god, Sultan Obama.

    STITCH!

    Family,

    Stitch and I have attended local “conservative” or “Republican” meetings from a site called “Meetup”.

    I thought thast by the sound of the title, it was a singles kind of thing.

    Stitch sqaured me away on that.

    Find local conservative meetings and try to get the conservative ball rolling in your area.

    In the end, the meetings here in the St. Louis area may not pan out as far as what the conservative “in your damn face” kind of strategy should be and Stitch may start a group himself.

    Guess who will be front and center? Me.

    One sensible person at a time. One day at a time.

    It took awhile for them to destroy things, it will take a while for us to put things back together.

    Lets get to work.

    Larry

  34. Choppie,

    My prayers are with you.

    I encourage all family members to pray on this day for it is National Prayer Day. Pray together won’t you? Pray for our continued blessings from God for our strength in fighting the evil that is now upon us. And in giving thanks for Larry, the NLTZ site, and all here who communicate with a peaceful and spiritual trust towards one another. Please…

  35. Hey Stitch…Bingo…I find it interesting that black athletes do not require affirmative action/quotas etc, yet those in the inner city schools can’t even be bothered to show up let alone learn anything. If the average black inner city kid spent as much time reading a book or studying math as say the average ghetto kid spends on a basketball court, we wouldn’t even be having this discussion. But of course in the inner city going to school means acting “white” and is therefore shunned, while being a basketball star means you can flaunt the world and act any way you want and get paid millions to be a anti social thug. Until this fundamental world view is changed, you can expect that the test scores/educational results/employment abilities, will continue to be pathetic. Of course the left will base this all on “racism” and “cultural” differences, and force schools to pass them,give them worthless diplomas, and force companies to hire them. And those of us who actually pull our weight will have to pay their way, and have our and our families successes taken away and given to the incompetent, in the name of “fairness” and “diversity”. Just wait till socialized medicine takes off and all the doctors are picked in order to have a correct “racial mix” instead of the ability to practice medicine and heal.

  36. Hey Larry…can’t wait to see what kind of cars the UAW will design! Of course a committee will be in charge and it will have everything except what people actually want cars for. Unless the government subsidizes Chrysler, I can’t see them even getting out of bankruptcy. Did you notice that Ford wants no part of the “bailout” help? No wonder.

  37. Citizensailor

    Larry, very good article. I have read and followed your writing for a while now and respect your truth.

    Let’s support and encourage the passage of HR 450, the Enumerated Powers Act, sponsored by Rep. John Shadegg. This would be a start toward holding our electeds to a standard of laws (passage).

  38. triviaman,

    Thank you for reposting that site on the reporter Todd Spivak. I had intended to repost it again when I thought the time was right.

    It is definitely worth every family member’s read!! An entirely different light on the Lecherous One.

    The hypocrisy in the liberal’s concern for education could not be more glaringly advertised than if it were on a billboard when Congress shut down scholarships of qualifying poor to middle classed children to aid them in the finance of private schooling in the D.C. area.

    Although government funded, the cost factor proved to be less than that of a student attending public schools (also government funded) for the same amount of time. These same students are also ahead of their public school peers by 2 – 3 years in their education.

    Yet, while in the public eye, these placatory liberals are acting distressed and at the same time defending the downward trend of public education all the while stealing it from children who appreciated it.

  39. My two 16 and 18 grandsons have been home-schooled for 7 years. The 18 y.o. graduates this year. They are bright, testing high on the SAT. He is going to Patrick Henry College where hopefully the conservative faculty is not outnumbered. The home schooling network is very strong in our partof Missouri. It can work,but takes much of the parents time. The end result is usually outstanding. Just think, they actually can start their day with prayer
    and the Pledge of Allegiance. Imagine that!

  40. noleftturnz

    Joe,

    Another outstanding point that I overlooked.

    I am ashamed..

    This is the National Prayer Day, a day that Obama “no-showed” and signed a mere proclamation.

    Obama’s act was intentional, mine was accidental.

    Thanks as always for your help,

    Larry

  41. My son just sent me this, an email he received from a friend, a USAF Sgt:

    Sometimes you are encouraged about our country’s future when you seesomething like this.

    Specifically, there is an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of acontemporary term. This year’s term was: Political Correctness.

    The winner wrote: “Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional,illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstreammedia, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possibleto pick up a turd by the clean end.”

  42. Choppie, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

  43. noleftturnz

    tsnamm,

    Greta point.

    Chrysler will build the cars demanded by Daddy Dearest, “fuel efficient, eco-green environmentally friendly death traps” that no one will want to own..

    Until they are FORCED to by the Obama caliphate.

    That’s right, Obama’s next step when the sensible giggle at the roller skates built by the seventy dollar an hour “wind fall profiteers” at Chrysler will be to DEMAND that Americans purchase these pop cans on wheels.

    That will involve a little “preotectionism” but that will be done with a smile by the progressive pied piper..

    I’ll ride a damn bike before I buy one of those “extortion mobiles”..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  44. noleftturnz

    Citizensailor,

    Thanks for your kind words and welcome aboard.

    Shadegg is an excellent man and from what I know about HR450, it is well worth noting and thanks for doing so.

    Hope to hear from you again soon. Every comment makes this site better.

    Larry

  45. noleftturnz

    Louise,

    THAT is the competition that the left cannot abide.

    Next step: home schooling will be illegal.

    Its all part of the monopoly that the left has to inflict on everyone because competition of any kind displays the overwhelming flaws of their “programs” or pogroms, which ever you prefer..

    Outstanding work. Its family members like you that have sculpted those kids into the citizens that they are.

    Be proud of them for they will be tomorrow’s leaders.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  46. Choppie,

    Our government at it’s best. I’m still going through my own hell so I hear ya. I will pray that your surgery goes well and that you will have a quick recovery. Please know my thoughts and prays are with you and I’m sending out positive vibes for you and especially your surgeon.

  47. Larry and all,

    I could probably write a book on this subject. The Unions and education go hand and hand into the abyss. Don’t get me wrong I love teachers, the ones who are there to teach instead of preach. There is now a blurred line between both. You are hired to teach, so go out and do what you were hired to do, you weren’t hired to spread the liberal agenda, you were hired to teach. If you don’t want to do that then find I’ll accept your resignation and tell you don’t let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.

    I’ve had wonderful teachers especially when I lived on Long Island; they loved their jobs and created a curiosity from the students they taught. I still remember most of what they taught me and I have a number of family members who went into teaching. My aunt taught for 35 years when she and my uncle didn’t need the money, they were already wealthy. She did it because she loved looking into those little faces full of curiosity, hope, the three million questions she heard over the years, what she called all the whys. Their enthusiasm about learning created a great hope for the future of this Country. When we no long asked why, then she knew we would be in trouble.

    Put on the brakes and rotate the tires because the idiot are at the helm and the scary thing is they actually believe what they are doing is something noble. I’m not sure they know what that words means. Noble for me means “arising from or overcoming the superiority of someone’s character that possesses an ideals, values or morals.” Someone only interested in doing what is right. Yet the liberals in this Country have devalued the meaning of that word to where it is no longer recognizable. It seems like an entitlement, dominance or condescension to those whom they view as unworthy of that title a noble man.

    The liberals seem to enjoy demeaning their competition or mocking their ideas or beliefs as being so ridiculous and stupid and look at you as if you had three eyes. Our educational system in this Country is actually quite pathetic. It’s no longer about teaching and learning it’s more about money, unions, and the spreading of the liberal ideology. This has turned our children into pretty dumb students.

    Our children cannot do math, they rely on calculators to think for them (is that what the new math was about?). I cannot remember a time where a cashier could calculate my change in their head and get it right. Even with the calculator they still make mistakes. They no longer know how to spell because everything is done for them. I had to uses a typewriter to hand in my papers so I needed to know how to spell and never needed the typewriter to fix my mistakes (but thank God for that erase button).

    But when I see some of the nonsense our children have to deal with, I shake my head in the wonderment of the stupidity that they are subjected to each day. When it looked as if Obama was going to be the Democrats candidate I wanted to find out about him and the things he believed in other then the liberal talking points and I felt (and still do) I needed to do my own research on him because the press refused to do it. I looked at what educational philosophy he stood behind.

    It’s quite distressing that parent’s now have to weigh through so much liberal garbage in order to remove the unwanted material that the liberals are trying to push on children, as young as four. Some of our public schools are more concerned about spreading their liberal agenda, then actually teaching your children how to read and write. Where building self-esteem is more important then giving them knowledge they’ll need to move forward in life, teach them the tools they’ll need to get through the rough patches. When teachers can no longer criticize a student when the student incorrectly answering a question. This seems to be the agenda lately.

    Let’s see where we are at in the education system in the United States:

    We have the liberal School Superintendents and liberal teachers that have a clear agenda, where the conservative lifestyle is considered bad, where God and religion will never be discussed or allowed. Now, this could be confusing for young children, while children attend church with their parents on Sunday, their teachers Monday through Friday, are telling them that it’s wrong to go to church. Instead, the liberal crowd feels they would prefer to teach children 8 or 9 years old about sex, by providing them with a questionnaire about how many times do they “touch themselves down there”, alternative lifestyles, i.e., two mommy’s or two daddy’s, and teaching children about masturbation. (So when do they start to learn about the A, B, and C’s?) They want to start with pre-school children and work there way up. So, Miss Liberal would rather have 3 or 4 years olds watch “The Virgina Monologues” then Barney is bad and who ever thought a dinosaur could be purple, forget about Mr. Rogers, he’s a conservative Nazi to some of these people. It doesn’t matter that these young children have no idea what they are talking about. Doesn’t matter, just so long as their message is spoken nor the fact that the child’s parents would object to this liberal message, by telling children, don’t tell Mommy or Daddy. Shh, this is a secret between me and you.
    A liberal teacher and children’s author, Ann Pelo, co-wrote a preschool book for teachers call, “It’s Not Fair! A Teachers Guide to Activism with Young Children. It’s okay, you can say it. It’s ludicrous and I would agree with you. But creating three or four year old activist, pre-schoolers. It’s so important for parents to question your children’s teachers and principal’s. I suggest parent’s request a syllabus or preview school curriculum on your children’s studies. If they are using Ms. Pelo’s book as a teaching tool, get the hell out of there. I cringe at the thought of what “show and tell” would be like in her classroom. It’s already pretty scary sending your children to school these days, with teachers getting turned on by 11 or 12-year old boys. With the arrest and incarceration of Mary Kay Letourneau (there are a number of these teachers here and Florida) and the floodgates of disturbed teachers has opened up, where every school year more of these teachers (male and female) are being revealed as some new type of pedophile.
    I would venture to guess we can thank the liberals for this new phenomenon. Should parents request a police background check to see if there child’s teach has an arrest record or any proclivity or deviant behavior or trait. Can a parent request a fingerprint analyst of their child’s teacher of teacher aides? I’m sure they will claim it’s none of the parents business digging into their teacher’s background.

    There is a California State Senator, John Vasconcellos, who believes in this “no criticizing theory” because it’s bad for a child’s self-esteem. He has authored numerous books on this theory, A Liberating Vision: Politics for Growing Humans, and Welcome This Next American Revolution: Towards a 21st Century Politics of Trust, Healing and Hope. The theory of self-esteem overpowers self-knowledge.

    If all states agreed with this teaching method, we would have a bunch of self-absorbed, self-centered, selfish, egotistic idiots to hand our Country over too. Think about a Supervisor of an Engineering Company, where one of their employees miscalculated engineering specs, which causes a building to collapse. Would or should the employee get fired? Does he have to bring a note from his mother that says… “Please don’t yell at Bobby, it would destroy is self-esteem and he needs his job to pay for all his psychological issues he has. So please don’t be mean to him.” The more I think about it, the more it sounds like Paris Hilton. Do we really need to have thousands of little brain-dead Paris Hiltons running around? Makes me want to have my legs sewn together to stop any chance of giving birth or raising a child like that and send him or her out into the World!

  48. Come on think about it folks,,if Obama allows parents to Home School,,how in the world can he BRAIN WASH them to be Obamaobots???,,I mean if their HOME SCHOOLED they would get the ‘REAL’ history as it actually happened and not the so called POLITICAL CORRECTNESS that leaves out the REAL HISTORY!

  49. SOOO….how come if UAW now owns 55% of Chrysler they have decided to move out of the Kenosha, Wisconsin factory and into Mexico???

  50. noleftturnz

    Leatha,

    Welcome aboard!

    Absolutely correct. Avoiding the indoctrination is the first step towards thwarting the liberal total immersion program where they only learn “important” things like condom application, political correctness and how to properly silence those who disagree.

    Went to your site, good stuff. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks as always,

  51. noleftturnz

    Pego,

    My guess would be because the unions are just like the liberals, they gain adherents by “promising to help the little guy”.

    Their main concern as class seperatists is to “take care of themselves”.

    This “move” when done by “evil capitalists” is called anything from “outsourcing” to “Un-American”.

    When done by the empathetic liberals/unions, it is considered “watching the bottom line” or something evasive like that.

    Under all liberal “enterprises”, the “insiders” are rewarded and the “masses” are thrown crumbs.

    However, they tell you that they are “fighting” for you..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

    This is somewhat off-subject, but I couldn’t help but smile when I saw George McGovern’s article on today’s Real Clear Politics Web site. He’s talking about government intervention in labor/management relations. George ain’t the liberal that he used to be. Here’s an example:

    “My perspective on the so-called Employee Free Choice Act is informed by life experience. After leaving the Senate in 1981, I spent some time running a hotel [it was an inn in Maine]. It was an eye-opening introduction to something [with which] most business operators are all too familiar— the difficulty of controlling costs and setting prices in a weak economy. Despite my trust in government, I would have been alarmed by an outsider taking control of basic management decisions that determine success or failure in a business where I had invested my life savings.” His business failed, and he’s never gotten over it.

    He once said that he would never have voted for some of the acts that allowed government intervention in private business if he had known what he knows now. By my calculation, George, born in 1922, was 59 when he left the Senate and is nearly 87 now. His support of Obama is mere lip service. He knows that Obama is a disaster, and if his “life experience” is any measure, we have a long time to wait for Obama to wise up!

  53. It is beyond my reasoning powers as to why blacks remain true to the liberals. It is impossible for me to except that a race of people can be, or remain to be, that ignorant, that insipid of self advancement, that they remain dependent on a political party who continually does nothing for them.

    In my last post I mentioned the highly successful voucher scholarship program for children of low-income families to be able to go to private schools and Congress now ready to kill that program. D.C is a city where 90% of the student population is black.

    The voucher program was set up by President Bush but the democrats have had it in their sights to get rid of it as soon as possible because, in part, of what and who they’re made of. The teacher’s union, NEA and AFT detest voucher programs.

    As I had said, there are 1700 students given vouchers with 7,000 applying each year and these vouchers students are 2-3 years ahead in their education than their public school contemporaries. The private schools cost less than public while the public turns out lower test scores.

    And still they follow singing OooBaaaMaa.
    It’s beyond me…

  54. noleftturnz

    Joe,

    Sick minds think alike..

    Look for “Better Luck With False Hope”..

    I’m working on it right now and there is a section relative to the “DC Opportunity Scholarship Program”.

    Hope to have the article done by about noon CST..

    Thanks as always,

    Chrysler is dying, you know it, I know it, and THEY know it.
    The ONLY thing this bailout is about is re-funding the UAW pension funds.
    Unfortunately, the hedge funds (OUR 401k) provided the cash.
    NO ONE is going to buy Chrysler products now.
    This is Sultan Obama’s way of paying back the unions for voting for him (most 401k people did NOT vote for him).

    Next: GM.

    Also, Next: the airlines.

    That is part of their edumacashun.
    They are actually TAUGHT to be STUPID.

    The ENTIRE learning curriculum in the cities is to teach poor people HOW to be poor.
    How to live off duh gubment.
    How to apply for mo’ money.
    How to join ACORN.
    How to protest, and where and when.
    How to vote- over and over.
    Most of them cannot name a single Founding Father.
    Most of them cannot name their own father.
    Obama is teaching them that the “so-called” Founding Fathers were rich, white, slave-owning, racists and their words (our Constitution) isn’t worth the paper it was written on. So HE is going to re-write it, in Ebonics.

    it’s been awhile, my bad! I thoroughly enjoyed this rant . I am just finishing Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism” and it gives me a whole new perspective on which to judge current events, etc. Maybe to fix the educational system, all curriculae above grade 8, should include study of this fine book? Add Ann Coulter’s “Guilty” as well. that would be a great start anyway. ciao for now, and our best wishes to you all down south there in your efforts to stem the socialist/fascist tide – we’re trying to do the same here in Canada – we have some good weapons in Ezra Levant, Kathy Shaidle, BlazingCatFur, Free Domininon bloggers, and Kate from Small Dead Animals blog. So let’s all keep soldiering on!

    Both are excellent tomes. I am wounded that NLTZ didn’t make your list..

    Thanks as always and don’t be a stranger.

    thanks for the kind comments! Yes they are excellent tomes, and I would add Green Hell by Steve Milloy, Tyranny of Nice by Kathy Shaidle &Shakedown by Ezra Levant to that compilation. The last two will give you an idea of what you will be in for if you don’t try to stop it now. I want to read Steyn’s latest (Twilight of the West?) as well.
    Between working tho, and trying to keep up the blog, twitter, and facebook , I tend to get busy ….LOL

  61. hey Larry did ya read about that kid in NC arrested on false pretences by the FBI (Friggin Big Idiots)?
    it seems to be a big mess …. check out http://freedominourtime.blogspot.com/

  62. I’m probably thick as a brick on this one, but just what does the Fed want with a controlling interest in Chrysler? Do they want to force production of a modern day version of the Trabant? The first politically, environmentally correct car? If so, this will be unbelievably entertaining to watch. Fedmobile. Hmmm.

  63. Kruschev was right. They ARE burying us. Took a while, but it’s finally happening.

  64. It is readily apparent to even a cursory read of the comments, that many are angry, others in pain, and some both. My prayers are with all of you in your efforts to stem the “progressivist” aka socialist tide in your country, and your efforts to regain freedoms that are being trampled now.
    Does anyone know if it’s true that the soldier who shot with “friendly” fire in Baghdad the other day was Muslim? I read an article on it at Gates of Vienna (http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/) but I noticed today it has been removed with no explanation
