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.

I wrote last year about Ray LaHoods desire to “coerce Americans out of” their cars. His plan is to make driving as uncomfortable, inconvenient and expensive as possible.
So now he wants to prevent the use of cell phones in cars due to the “distraction” factor. He says the technology is out there to disable phones in cars. I keep asking myself, is this what the progressive left really want? Do all those college students who support the Obama agenda really want to give up their phones?
And where do distractions in cars end? How many parents will be leaving their kids at home because the “Mom! he’s looking at me again!” screeches from the backseat are a distraction? How about a bottle of water while you’re driving, not to mention a burger and fries? Or God forbid – a cigarette!!!I don’t want my family out on the highway without a cell phone. Hell, I don’t want to be out on the highway without mine.
Where does it end? At $10/gallon gas? Not only will that “coerce” us out of our cars but out of the grocery store and malls, too. Which in turn, means job loss to millions more.
A year ago LaHood was talking about chips in cars that would monitor gas consumption which would then be taxed as part of the carbon footprints BS, which in turn would be part of crap-n-tax that the EPA will be trying to enforce on us, all the while walking around congress.
Oh, what a tangled web they weave . . .Non-elected officials writing laws that will dramatically and fundamentally change our lives and our nation.
It’s all about protecting us right out of our jobs, our healthcare, all our civil liberties in what has become an obscene desire to control every aspect of our lives, by the ruling class. They know better than the rest of us how to spend our money and what’s best for our health and welfare. How many rights will be enough? When do we finally say enough?
2 years of this has been scary. Another term with this regime will mark the end of America as we’ve known and loved it.

You need a reason to vote? Read this by Victor Davis Hanson.
If Hanson’s post today doesn’t “fire you up – ready to go” vote, nothing will!
This regime has to be neutralized and the only way to do it is to vote in overwhelming numbers. I don’t care if nothing gets done in the next two years, in fact, I’m hoping nothing does get done! The less this government can do, the better for all of us. And that includes defunding NPR, NEA, PBS, and the most horrible of all – HEALTH CARE! If they are defunded, nothing will be done at those entities that can offend or rob any of us.
This man and his agenda HAS TO BE STOPPED before we lose everything we’ve taken for granted. It’s time to stop taking for granted and start standing up and being counted.
Get out and vote and when you do, do so carefully!

Failure is not the product of [the Statists] beliefs but merely want of power and resources. Thus are born endless rationalizations for seizing ever more governmental authority. Mark Levin/Liberty and Tyranny
And “thus are born more rationalizations” for enslaving the citizens by over taxation. If the school systems aren’t working – Let’s throw more money at it. If the war on drugs isn’t working – Let’s throw more money at it.
Statists will never admit that a system or a program just isn’t working. That would be admission of failure and they DO NOT FAIL.
