Have you read the story on Drudge about the 4th grade teacher in Norfolk, VA who set up a mock slave auction in her classroom? The story is copyrighted so I can’t post it here but you can find it at The Virginian-Pilot via Drudge.
This goofy liberal teacher separated her black and mixed race students and offered them for sale to her white students as a classroom lesson in — I’m not sure what. To teach 9 year olds mmmm I can’t really come up with a reason she would do something so stupid, so out of line, so really inappropriate, all in the name of being “well meaning” or “in everyone’s best interest” or “for the good of the children.”
To paraphrase C.S. Lewis, the statist restrict other people’s liberty and peace with a clear conscious because they are doing it for the greater good of those people who just really don’t know what IS good for them. They really see nothing wrong with these behaviors because they are doing what they believe is best for all of us. Never mind that most of us would just like to be left the hell alone.
The Virginian-Pilot goes on to report that last year a guidance counselor resigned her job after giving out 80-100 fetus figurines to elementary students; another left after parents complained that she had anointed a student with “holy oil”; while a third (high school teacher) was reprimanded after it came to light that he/she was teaching from anarchist materials and organizations that were pro-marijuana legalization.
Our tax dollars at work, boys and girls.
Where do you find a fetus figurine? Let alone 100 of them? And more importantly, how is that possibly age approriate for an elementary age child? And whether this counselor was pro-life or pro-abortion, matters not because it simply has no place in elementary school.
I just cannot imagine what these teachers are thinking. I’ll say this, though, they are good promotion for home schooling.

This talk has been out there for a week and it’s now finalized. This is big news on every blog in the ethersphere; ours and the commies, both.
I”m sure that Van Jones and his Color of Change is planning a huge rally now and the spin will be that THEY won and pushed Beck out. Too bad too, because I know this was a business decision that Jones had nothing to do with.
It’ll be interesting to see what new plans Beck has and how Fox will fill in the time slot and the obvious void that will occur without Beck. This is going to cost Fox a lot of viewers, in the short term, at least and during his 5pm slot.
I do think that Beck is becoming too evangelical for a news channel – not that evangelical is a bad thing, it’s not. I”m a pretty religious person (something I keep pretty private) and I’ve noticed that Beck is leaning more and more to the ‘end of days’ evangelism that many people agree with and welcome. He’s given me plenty to think about and plan for. But I’m not sure that a news channel is the appropriate venue for that kind of thing.
I’ve learned a great deal from Beck and I know that he’s not going to be gone. We’ll just have to wait and see where he pops up next and what pops up with him.
