It’s GOT to be hard to come up with fresh ideas in a country where more than a third of the people don’t work. All those people sitting around doing nothing is not a good thing, so the democrats have come up with a solution.
Obama started this. He wants the taxpayers to pay for the first two years of college for everyone…Okay, I’m in.
Then Bernie Sanders, not to be outdone, wants FOUR year of free education: Even better!
The Vermont senator and presidential candidate has introduced legislation to eliminate undergraduate tuition at four-year public universities and colleges. His bill, called The College for All Act, would lower interest rates on federal student loans, give graduates a chance to refinance existing loans at lower rates, and stop the government from making profits on student loans.
But, wait: Hillary is not going to be outdone by those men.
Hillary wants debt-free college for everyone! I’m not sure what that means in Hillary land doublespeak. Does this mean she wants to give all citizens free educations? It has to mean that, because you have to PAY for college, so the only way you can be debt free is to not have to pay at all. Or do you build up that bill and it’s just erased at the graduation? And does she mean to forgive all the debts and student loans so far? She doesn’t say.
No, Hillary wants the state to not only provide free college, but free child care. Right after the mother pops that baby out, some state nurse will enter that little bundle into a Hillary state-run day care center.
Hillary Rodham Clinton says child care needs to become a national priority and is urging Republicans in Congress to provide more federal money to help working families care for their children.
The former secretary of state says Wednesday that Republicans should “get on board or get out of the way.” She says child care could be improved through new tax breaks to parents or grants to states.
Don’t kid yourself. Someday, welfare will no longer be there, so in order to eat, you will have to work, and you will have to work right after you have that baby. And Hillary will be there to make sure all the babies grow up to obey and respect…
Big Brother Hillary.
Yes, it’s got to be hard when a nation has been so destroyed economically that people can’t even afford a day care center let alone college.
And according to the news…next year, we won’t be able to afford chickens.
Hillary needs to get to work on that. I want my debt-free chicken eggs, don’t you?
Nobody Gets Email*******Imagine my surprise when my liberal friend JR, sent this to me with the words: God, I LOVE this guy!**************(Note: I did look this up on Snopes!)Enjoy!(Thanks JR!)**************************We watched high school principal Dennis Prager of Colorado, along with Sara Palin and Tom Brokaw on TV a couple of weeks ago….what a dynamic, down to earth speaker. Even though Palin and Brokaw were also guest speakers they did little but nod and agree with him.***************A Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give.By Dennis Prager.********************To the students and faculty of our high school:**************I am your new principal, and honored to be so.*****************There is no greater calling than to teach young people.****************I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.****************First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity – your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will care about is American.****************This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America , one of its three central values — E pluribus unum, “from many, one.” And this school will be guided by America ‘s values.*****************This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.*****************Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism — an unhealthy preoccupation with the self — while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself.******************So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.*********************Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America ‘s citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here — it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English — but if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your school.*****************Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor , everything in this school will reflect learning’s elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.******************Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school’s property — whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you can’t speak without using the f -word, you can’t speak. By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as “Nigger,” even when used by one black student to address another black, or “bitch,” even when addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.*******************Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way — the way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago — by earning it. One immediate consequence is that there will be one valedictorian, not eight.*********************Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue… There will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself inordinately fortunate — to be alive and to be an American.********************Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of our country.As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.******************Pass this along if you agree. . . . If not delete….and later regret it!OR IS IT ALREADY TOO LATE?NOBODY WONDERS if any principles in the United States were even ALLOWED to give this speech…anyone?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You have to admire 9-year-old Sydney Smoot. She lays out the stupidity of making students study for one test at the end of the year, that nobody is allowed to see. She deserved the standing ovation, and let’s hope this gets seen by some of the parents out there who need to unit and speak up against Common Core. Sydney has shown them how its done.
Good for her.
Congratulations Sydney! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week!
Your future is so bright I gotta wear shades!
Those are the exact same words that were told to my son the first day of his arrival at his Senior Year in high school. They told him to go home. He could not attend because he had no note from his doctor.
What he had was not contagious, and hurt no one.
As you can imagine, at the time, (this was years ago) I could not believe that in America, a school could tell a kid he couldn’t come into the school without a doctor’s note. I had been talking to the school the year before and knew that my son had a sleep disorder….but I never dreamed they would kick him out of school, without a trial, without consulting us, or talking to us, or even working with us.
Unfortunately, the sleep clinic we finally ended up taking him to the summer before his senior year had a psychologist who didn’t see anything wrong with my son. That man was a moron. Later on, after my son was kicked out of school, we took him to the sleep clinic at the very well respected Washington University School of Medicine, who diagnosed him correctly: Yes, his mother was right, he had D.S.P.S.
Delayed Sleep Phrase Syndrome. Basically, you have trouble sleeping. Evidently if the class was boring, he would fall asleep, but have you ever heard a student being kicked out of school because he fell asleep in a classroom?
And by the way, those sleep clinics aren’t cheap.
At the same time, hundreds of black kids from the city were allowed to attend classes at our high school, and even go half days, taking afternoon jobs making solicitor phone calls for high school credit, do their own hours, while my son was treated like this lady: like a criminal.
But…they were black. My son was…white.
Nobody at the high school would help us. At the same time, one of his classmates was found selling dope on the school grounds. Was he kicked out? No. His mother was running for office.
My son had never been in trouble with the police, or in his entire school life. He was not on drugs, and he was at the top of his class in grades. And yet, they kicked him out, simply because they were liberals assholes. It’s as simple as that.
It affected his whole life. He went on and got a GED scholarship, but college was no different….and two years later, the high school sent me a letter saying, “Your son will be allowed to attend now.”
It not only affected my son’s life and his future, I was attacked in ways you could not imagine for trying to get help. I found out, after three years, that corruption goes to the top of the government, and they protect that liberal corrupt system with every fiber of their being. From the media, to the schools, to the government…they all are on the same page. And that page is tyranny.
Okay. As you can see, it still pisses me off. My son was at the top of his class in grades. He wanted to graduate with his class.
You would have THOUGHT they would have given him a hearing of some kind.
Years later, I read The Educating of Henry Adams. It took some of the pain away from that time….but look what I am doing here…I heard that women say those words and immediately the fury from all those years has got me writing this.
As if anybody ever cared. Nobody does. They didn’t then..they don’t now. No the liberal hearts bleed for the ‘unfortunate.’
Poor Lady. She has cancer and she gets kicked off a plane. Good god. What? Did they think she was contagious?
Common sense. Nobody Wins when so few people have it.
In the end, the decision to not let my son in the school was the decision of the very liberal Nazi principal, who was like most of the liberal women you see every day in politics. She didn’t care that she was destroying a young man’s life. …I believe to this day that she got immense pleasure out of destroying mine.
I think, there was much more to it…it was just sheer liberal hatred….of a mother and a son who were…conservative.
I’m combining my two Thursday titles today, because they deal with the same subject: our wacko, liberal, no-brain, liberal teachers who run our schools and universities.
So, let’s start with a man who has won the Nobody’s Fool Award many times before–The VERY American, Wild Bill–gives us some examples of really stupid things done by our schools:
Actually, No. 2 almost happened to me. I went up to my local grade school to gather my son after school one day, and just walked into the school, into the hallway and down to his class. The teachers that were still there ran OUT of their rooms and began to panic An actual parent was IN THE SCHOOL!!
The principal RAN down the hallway (Okay, she was pretty fat, and watching her run was funny) and told me that I HAD to leave immediately.
“Hey, schools out. I’m just here to pick up my son and walk him home.”
“Well, if we let YOU do it, we’d have to let every parent do it!” she exclaimed. “If you don’t leave now I will have to call the police.”
“Well then, call them.” I said. “I pay your salary AND theirs.”
She didn’t call them, but I was told I was not ever allowed in that school again without signing in first.
What is so strange about this is the year was 1984. This was long before Columbine, or 9/11, or anything like that. The little dirty secret is that the liberals have been taking over control of our kids for decades, and making sure the parents had absolutely no say whatsoever in their little brainwashing endeavors. They just kept us OUT of the schools. We were only permitted one night a year. People were so busy working they just accepted it.
And because they did such a bang up job of brainwashing so many kids, we now see this happening:
–when Muslims are allowed their prayers to be BLASTED all over the frigging school! Can Christians BLAST their prayers all over Duke University? I’d start demanding it.
OVER The intercom, just like the Muslims. And then the Jews should get their turn too. Add some Wickens to that.
The National Cathedral now holds Muslim prayers. How nice is that for all the people who lost loved ones on 9/11?
And that’s what happens when you have liberals run your schools…they end up electing a Muslim to run their country, simply because they really are..
That uneducated. (I could have said stupid, but…go ahead. I’ll let you.)
When Mitt Romney lost the last election— he was shocked, and why? The ‘polls’ told him he was going to win. Even Dick Morris, a man who thrives on the science of polls, predicted Romney would win the Presidency. (Polls don’t factor in fraud, do they now?)
The polls are telling everyone now, that nobody could beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. But Obama did once before. Hillary is a lousy speaker…next to Obama, she sounded like everyone’s most hated school marm.
Polling people may be all well and good, but unless you know who DID the poll, who was asked, and how the question was framed, it’s hard to believe any of them. More often than not, polls now are pure political propaganda used to further an agenda.
So…Nobody Remembers some words lifted from a speech given by George Gallup, the granddaddy of pollsters, from a speech he gave at the University of Iowa, April 14, 1953.
Mr. Gallop was distressed about the astounding ignorance of the American people.
“One of the real threats to America’s future place in the world is a citizenry which daily elects to be entertained and not informed. From the time the typical citizen arises and looks at his morning newspaper until he turns off his radio or television set before going to bed, he had unwittingly cast his vote a hundred times for entertainment or for education. Without his knowing it, he had helped to determine the very character of our three most important media of communication—The press, radio, and television.
The present lack of interest in the informative type of television show is shocking.
During the last war one of the sadder sights to me was to see grown men, most of them with high school or college training, poring over comic books in railroad and bus stations and apparently wholly unconcerned with the happenings in the world, which would almost certainly affect their destiny.
In a recent study of metropolitan newspapers, it was found that the average amount of time which a reader spends daily on the important news of his country and of the world is less than four minutes. He spends ten times as much time on sports, local gossip, and the service and entertainment features.
Despite the fact that we have the highest level of formal education in the world, fewer people buy and read books in this nation than in any other modern democracy. An Englishman who leaves school at the age of fourteen read about as many books as our college graduate.
The ignorance of these college graduates about the classics was overwhelming. One adult in every four throughout the country could name the two men selected as vice presidential candidates. A good many college students and former students cannot take an outline map of the United States and put their finger on the state of Illinois.
I believe that the great hope of the future must lie in our educational system. I have come reluctantly but inevitably to the conclusion that the enemies of learning at the university level are the textbook, the classroom lecture, and our course system. At Oxford for example the student is left pretty much on his own. He reports at weekly or biweekly intervals to his professor or don who offers his guidance and criticism. In this country, we lean heavily on textbooks which consist for the most part of bits and pieces of knowledge cannibalized from other textbooks. Too often he teacher in his classroom lecture, merely repeats the material covered by the textbooks, And the student, once he has memorized and then regurgitated the textbook material in a true false quiz, can forget the whole business
Obviously the whole school system, from the grades up to college, must be revised if we are to turn out a more mature product.
So in a real sense, the education of every person should begin and not end with graduation.”
But in the end, and up to that point, Gallup still believed in the common American:
‘In the course of polling the American public over a periods of nearly two decades, I have found that our people are wonderfully endowed with what is best described as “horse sense.” The collective judgment of the people, up to this pint in history, has been extraordinarily sound. There is a mountain of evidence to prove that the public is generally right in its opinions and usually far ahead of its representatives in government.”
I wonder what Mr. Gallup would say today, don’t you?
Do the American people still have good “horse sense’ or has the horse kicked the proverbial bucket never to return?
Just because you happened to go to an ivy league school, and came up with a new idea for the computer, doesn’t mean you are bright in any other subject: And that’s the problem with some geniuses–their ego’s make them think that they can conquer any subject: NOT.
For instance, the average conservative knows that it’s the teachers’ unions along with the government that has ruined our educational system. You would THINK a genius like Zuckerface would know that too.
But, he wanted to show the world that that movie made about him, which made him out to be a spoiled egotistical brat, isn’t true. He is a generous and good person. And donating $100 million dollars to Newark, New Jersey to help the kids—well that was praised by all the elites
He gave the money to Obama’s two favorite New Jersey Wise guys—Cory Booker and Chris Christie, with no strings…they could spend the money how they wanted…little oversight.
They gave it a name: Startup: Education. (laugh here)
As usual, nothing happened, and the money is gone.
Between 2010 and 2012, The New Yorker reports that “more than $20 million of Zuckerberg’s gift and matching donations went to consulting firms with various specialties: public relations, human resources, communications, data analysis, [and] teacher evaluation.” Many of the consultants were being paid upwards of $1,000 a day.
“Everybody’s getting paid but Raheem (RAHEEM?) still can’t read,” Vivian Cox Fraser, president of the Urban League of Essex County, was quoted saying.
The reform ended up looking like this: taking low-performing public schools and closing them, turning them into charter schools and “themed” high schools. But there was no easy way to expand charters without destabilizing traditional public schools.”
There’s the key word: ‘destabilizing.” This means lots of tenured union teachers would lose pay, jobs security, and pensions. But maybe Zuckerberg just wanted a tax write-off.
Nobody gives Zuckerberg at least a little credit: Unlike Oprah, he gave the money to schools in the United Sates.. And I would bet you a $100 million dollars (If I had it) That Zuckerberg would do it again in a heartbeat.
Why he didn’t build schools for his favored class: the illegal aliens, I have NO idea–that’s next.
As usual: the money STAYS at the top–and you have to wonder about Zuckerberg. is he delusional? Or is this all about him?
Obama waved his hand and gave illegal’s amnesty, now he is doing his King act again,by saying that all illegal children have a right to be educated in our schools.
The Obama administration announced Wednesday it would issue new guidance requiring U.S. schools to provide equal education to all children, regardless of their immigration status. Attorney Gen. Eric Holder and Education Secretary Arne Duncan are expected to detail the proposal Thursday morning during a conference call with reporters.
Of course there’s a big catch to this: if you are planning on coming to America to get your free education, remember: we have some of the worst schools in the world. I’d rethink it if I were you. But if you just want you kids to get free meals..while you collect welfare, than I’d say…come on in!
But, this is nothing new, we have been supplying education for the world’s children for quite some time.
According to a report at ANI News, the U.S. Government recently launched a new initiative to teach primary school children in India how to read.
India’s Center for Knowledge Societies will receive 3.2 million U.S. dollars from USAID through the READ (Read-Engage-Achieve-Dream) Alliance.
In light of a seventeen and a half trillion dollar national debt, a few million may not seem like a lot. But the principle still stands: Where in the Constitution is the federal government empowered to spend the American people’s money on literacy programs (or any program) in foreign countries?
They are not! But that doesn’t stop our imperial President for making YOU and I pay for other children’s education, whether they are here, or in Afghanistan, or Kenya, or India…
YOU pay for it.
William Baer was arrested…for daring to speak to his children’s wardens, for DARING to be upset about his child being exposed to porn…
From The Blaze
According to WCVB-TV, the book contains a graphic description of rough sex between two teenagers, which parents were unaware of until the book had already been distributed to their kids.
“I was shocked when I read the passage and not much shocks me anymore,” William Baer told EAG News. “My wife was stunned by the increasingly graphic nature of the sexual content of the scene and the imagery it evoked.”
School district officials said they normally send out notifications to parents before assigning the controversial book, but forgot to do so this time.
More proof that our schools have become prisons, and teachers are state Gestapo. They truly belive that parents have no rights whatsoever with their kids.
So the next time you hear Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama talk about our democracy…remember…you have NO say whatsoever in your children’s education.
And this is what will happen if you even dare to protest.
Sadly, the sheeple around this man—- were cowards.
This week, we have two American schools that are in contention for the Nobody’s Perfect Award: Brandeis University in Boston, VS High Schools in Topeka, Kansas.
It seems the administrators of both these institutions invited two very famous ladies to talk at their universities, but…they ran into some complications they didn’t expect:
Not too long ago, Ayaan Hirsi—a woman who reminds you that all Hillary Clinton has done in life was push the wrong red button— was invited to speak at Brandeis University to receive an award for being such a great advocate for Muslim women’s rights.
After taking heat from some of its own over a decision to grant an honorary degree to an advocate for Muslim women who has made comments critical of Islam, Brandeis University withdrew the honor Tuesday night. More than 85 of the 350 faculty members signed a letter getting her booted off the honorary degree recipient. The university said in a statement that Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali would no longer receive the honorary degree, which it had planned to award her at the May 18 commencement.
She was…Islamaphobic. ( I love it when liberals make up big names don’t you?)
You would be too if you had lived her life:
Ms Ali was raised a strict Muslim, survived a civil war, genital mutilation, beatings and an arranged marriage, and this was BEFORE she met Bill Clinton! (Sorry, I thought you might like to know the joke going on in my other mind))— and then, she renounced her faith and bravely worked with others to get out the message. She had to flee to the United States to save her own life.
And here’s why Brandeis University decided to cancel her: She had once said:
” Once it’s defeated, (Islam) it can mutate into something peaceful. It’s very difficult to even talk about peace now. They’re not interested in peace. I think that we are at war with Islam. And there’s no middle ground in wars.”
Yep, that’s what got her in trouble. Obama has declared, “We are not at war with Islam and never will be.”
Over 3800 online signatures tried to get her reinstated, but Hey…it’s Boston.
And then we come to Topeka, Kansas. Michelle Obama decided, at the last-minute, that she would come to Topeka’s graduation class and give a big historical shout out to the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court, Brown vs. Board of Education,, brought against Topeka by some African-American parents.
You think Michelle would let THAT historical race market by without a big photo-op and propaganda message?
(Will she bring Oprah?)
Much to her surprise, over 2,000 people have signed a petition telling her to stay away.
Here’s what the petition said:
“We are honored to have the First Lady speak at commencement and the student body was literally crying and jumping for joy when the news was announced and we are in no way shape or form ungrateful for what the Board has done for us.
There are problems that come with the combining of the commencements. First of all, for most families in 501, money is short and we have spent hundreds of dollars buying graduation announcements that are now incorrect. The district has stated they will not refund this. Topeka High School’s graduation on its own takes approximately two and a half hours. The combining of five high schools will increase that to about six hours. With increased security the total time will be brought up to eight hours. Secondly, families have many people coming from states away taking sick leave to see the graduation. They will come to Topeka, only to find that they cannot be involved. Those with divorced families have to choose which side of the family they want to invite, this doesn’t even include siblings.”
Not to mention, everybody’s plans, and parties will be ruined because of the hordes of FBI and secret service that will be in town…streets will be shut down, hotel rooms already rented will be canceled. The ceremony will be 8 hours long and good luck finding a bathroom. Parents wait their whole lifetime for this event, but do you think that is going to stop the African Queen? Do you think she cares if people suffer by her decision?
The faculty of Topeka, Kansas who did not say, “Well, we love to have you dear, but it would be much better if we just set up a big screen and have you deliver your message from the White House.” OR —the faculty of Brandeis University who did not want to offend their Muslim men donors?
You know what? I’m picking a winner: Topeka Kansas.
It’s one thing to ruin a hero’s life Ayaan Hirsi Ali..that’s just one life, and I’ve heard her speak. Her light only grew stronger from the snub. From what she has gone through…getting ditched by a bunch of elites is a laugh.
And Michelle, If I may say so myself: It’s immensely rude, and egotistical to ruin the lives of thousands of people’s one day of jubilation, just because you want to make a political speech to help your image.
Obama’s star is fading, and that’s why we are seeing Michelle everywhere.
So, congratulations Topeka! You win! Have fun!
How do you not watch this and go…huh? He wants LESS white kids in his university or he’s a failure? Well, Mr. “I’m so ashamed I’m white and making $312,000 to keep you other white kids from getting what I got that I am going to stand up and condemn you all! because I can make a lot of money doing it!”
Excuse my language… but: Bastard.
That’s about the most racist statement I have ever heard, and coming no less, from a white idiot who is…well, read some of the other Nobody comments from YOUTUBE…
Shouldn’t white liberals kill themselves to end recism? —Shami
I dare any liberal to name a diversity other than food music and dance.—- Jimmy
In my opinion, the guy is a totally insane asshole. —- Rowwdy
I’m still waiting to hear Moorehouse or Howard U say that if they are as black in 20 years as they are now, that they have failed as universities. —Far from equilibrium
I guess he can start by quitting his position and setting the example. —-Jurri
No country in the world is going to win, when it keeps smart people out of university, just because they are white.
Rowwdy, I’m with you.
When I was about eight, my grandfather bought the entire Britannica Encyclopedia and gave it to our family at Easter. Of course, it was for me, because the whole family knew my brother didn’t pick up anything to read unless it was the latest Superman comic. And tonight, I pulled a volume out of that same set, to see what it had to say about the history of education in America. Just what I always thought. The nation started off with the “Little School house on the Prairie ” and then some time later, they decided every child needed to be educated, so they made everyone pay taxes and we were all pushed into school at five.
BUT…Mental Floss Magazine added some stuff, I had never heard..like…did you know that the Klu Klux Klan was one of the main reasons we got mandatory school?
“Grandpa— that wasn’t in the Encyclopedia.”
According to the mental at Mental Floss, before the 1820s, HALF the laborers in American cotton mills were children under the age of 15. And the real reason adults wanted the kids out of the labor force was because of the competition. Children were cheaper, and had more energy. Mary Kenny O’Sullivan, vice president of the National Women’s Trade Union League, said,
“Whenever child labor prevails there is a corresponding decrease in employment for adults.”
Right you are, Mary.
Yes, those dirty rotten kids were taking jobs away from women. Can you imagine? In fact, getting rid of the kids was one of the big factors in uniting the American labor movements.
So— because they didn’t want to throw the little burgers out in the street, the labor leaders thought up a whole new industry: mandatory school, lead by unionized teachers, where they could also get those pesky women out of the factories too! It was a perfect plan.
Massachusetts was the first state to pass a compulsory education law. By 1886, 16 states followed.
Business owners enamored with their short low-cost labor poll, denounced the statues as “communist” and “un-American.”
This was such a great idea that the labor leaders called for compulsory education everywhere, and that’s when the Klu Klux Kan decided it was a good way to FORCE immigrants to conform to white Protestant culture.
(A horrible culture that included math, science, reading, writing…all those terrible things.)
But…kids could still work on weekends and after hours, and so the Klan decided to stop it, and they rallied for a national ban on child labor. It was the Northern Klansmen against the Southern industrialist.
(So…..when blacks couldn’t pick cotton anymore, they got kids. Is that what you get out of this?)
The Klan won the constant lobbying. In 1938 the Fair Labor Standard Act officially ended child labor, but the black kids could STILL work. White children across the south were guaranteed an education, the black kids, well…they could still pick cotton, but this time, they got paid. They didn’t have to go to school.
It was still the racist Klan. But hey, Robert Byrd used to be a member, proving that what? Did the Northern Klansmen move to the South? Did they leave the North?
Mental Floss didn’t say.
So what do we learn from this mental floss history lesson?
According to history, everybody’s wages would go up by 150 percent.
And young black men, who simply cannot get a decent education out of the American mandatory public school system, could finally make a decent wage.
Thanks to Mental Floss, it’s all very clear. We should all call our Congressmen and remind them that we got rid of the kids in our factories, let’s get rid of the illegals.
An Ohio high school student is now considering a lawsuit after school officials searched his car without his consent and found a pocket knife, leading to his arrest.
Jordan Wiser, an EMT trainee who attends Ashtabula County Technical School in Jefferson, spent 13 days in jail for the three-inch knife officials found and reported to police.
He was charged with “illegal conveyance of a weapon onto a school ground” despite the fact that the knife was found in Wiser’s first responder vest and used for slicing an accident victim’s seatbelt.
“I declined to allow them to search myself or my car and that I wanted to talk to my lawyer or my father,” Wiser told Fox News. “They told me it wasn’t an option.”
The school officials claimed that they had “probable cause” to search Wiser’s car based on a message Wiser supposedly wrote on-line and that possession of the pocket knife was a violation of the school’s “zero tolerance” policy.
First off: Whatever he posted online is free speech. That should not give any school a right to go search his car without a search warrant. When a student is not in school, it’s none of the school’s business what he says anywhere. Now, the internet is becoming a part of the whole government complex. Today your kids will be punished. Tomorrow, it will be you.
THAT’s why they want complete surveillance. The government schools (or any school for that matter) has no right whatsoever to punish a student for what he does out of school, and yet, this is happening all over the country. The 1st amendment is eroding right before our eyes.
Second: It was in the CAR. How dare they go searching through that car.
Third: Every day, some child is expelled from some school for the most idiotic, and ridiculous things imaginable: like kissing, pointing their finger like a gun in play, or the latest: a little girl brought a sandwich to school in her pocket. She got three days suspension. How in the world can we survive?—-
With such MORONS running the schools!!! (sorry, but shouting is at this point, the only option.)
Our schools have become prisons. They are even built like prisons. Parents are not allowed inside, and they are NOT allowed to criticize any teachers least that teacher take it out on their kids. The principles of some of these schools are basically wardens. They will never, ever, ever side against any teacher in their district. They are all government drones.
I fought the school system all my adult life. The school is connected to the Feds now and it’s damn near a military chain of command. At least the schools in my neighborhood. It goes right up to the governor. If it’s a democratic city, ruled by democrats, your kids are basically training in a prison. Unless of course, you are black, and in that case Eric Holder has your back.
But you’ll end up in prison anyway, because you were taught by…morons!
This Nazi like run educational system is killing our kids.
I hope this guys sues…but then again, like me, once upon a time when I had good reason to sue, I didn’t have the money. And I found out the vast corruption now pretending to be an educational system, but in reality, is anything but
And so it…goes on, and gets worse.
