(Updated) Kevin Jennings needs to make a Van Jones exit

Eleven installments and still practically no one outside BigGovernment is even touching this story!

The suggested reading materials that Jennings approved for children is beyond inappropriate and if any one else were providing it to minors, they’d be in jail.

A lot of the information in this stuff was unknown to me until I was nearly 40 years old. These kids are being exposed to information, instructions and illustrations that is blatantly pornographic and way beyond their years. And Kevin Jennings approved all of it! His creepy fingerprints are all over this.

I’ve contacted my senators and congressman, even though they have no jurisdiction over these presidential appointments. I will be contacting Arnie Duncan and TheOne.

Jennings needs to creep out of Washington, under the cover of night like Jones did.

He’s a disgrace.

GrassRoots Nation is circulating a petition to have Jennings removed.

Noteable Quote – Charles Krauthammer

When Editorial Page Editor Meg Greenfield approached me to do a column for The Post, I was somewhat daunted. The norm in those days was to write two or three a week, hence the old joke that being a columnist is like being married to a nymphomaniac — as soon as you’re done, you’ve got to do it again.

2010 – It’s gonna be a good year!

An approval rating I love to see – one in the shitter!

Let’s don’t forget it was this White House that, in a very Rahm-esque move, “allegedly” threatened to close Offut AFB unless Ben Nelson got on board the health care express.

— A White House that was willing to put national security at risk in order to get this monstrous health care debacle passed through the Senate.

Yep. This is going to be a good year!

40 years of Democrats and Unions created THIS Detroit and destroyed its schools

What was once a beautiful and vibrant city with fabulous architecture, has become a ghetto. It’s heartbreaking and sickening to see what was and now is Detroit and all at the hands of 40  years of statism.

Last summer the Detroit school board voted to close 23 schools and laid off 600 teachers. The city is depopulating and with that, student enrollment has shrunk from 140,000 in 1999 to 95,000 today – a 32% drop in 10 years.

A generation and a half of entitlements, union theft and mismanagement has taken its toll on the remaining population. They are a dispirited citizenry and their children’s school performance reflects that. Once again the state wants to step in and fix the problem by forcing parents – who receive state aide – to sign a contract requiring they become more active in their child’s education or be fined for not doing so.

After 40 years of taking personal responsibility away from the people, now they want to make people behave responsibly. Now they want to force parents to actually behave like parents or pay up. A little late in the game for that. These are parents who were raised on entitlements and affirmative action.

[State Rep. George Cushingberry, D-Detroit] wants to do something about the other parents, the ones who are too young, or who don’t read well enough to help their children. He is sensitive to those for whom poverty has been an obstacle.

“Poverty has been an obstacle” to these parents thanks to the do-gooder statists like Cushingberry and other democrats. They have kept Detroiters in poverty for the last 4 decades. As Ben Franklin once said, they have made poverty too comfortable and removed any incentive for these sad people.

This is the scary future that we face from the statist majority in our federal government. This could very well be the fate of all our big cities, our states and our schools.

Steven Crowder has a brand new video about Detroit, worth a watch, here. It’s a real eye opener.
