Part 4 of 5 Stop Common Core; Charter Schools, Private Schools & Home Schoolers ALL Affected

September 19, 2014

What good is it to have a hundred different restaurants if they all have to serve Italian food? This is exactly what Common Core is doing with our schools. If your state has school choice vouchers your schools will be required to adopt Common Core Standards. Catholic schools & private schools will be scooped up too as the creators of Common Core Standards testing have moved on to college AP & SAT testing. Private school students and homeschoolers to gain acceptance into colleges & universities will be forced to throw in the towel and lower their standards to the Common Core State Standards. This is insidious and all-encompassing. You cannot escape it.

I’ll say it again. Get informed! If you have kids or grandkids in school find out what is being taught! Look at their text books. If you have kids or grandkids studying to become teachers make them aware that they might not enjoy their chosen profession as it is taken over by the federal govt and other controlists.  Ask questions and be prepared to be surprised! And then you must join the fight. GET RID OF COMMON CORE!

How Do People Express Their Sexual Feelings? On a Poster Displayed in a 6th Grade Classroom Courtesy of Common Core

September 12, 2014

How would you respond if your 6th grade daughter brought home a photo of a poster from her classroom listing explicit sexual acts that people may partake in while expressing their sexual feelings? You can’t make this up! This happened in January this year in Shawnee, Kansas ( the Bible belt!). This is all part of the National Sexual Education Standards in Common Core.

The menu of expressions included on this poster for 6th graders included:

  • Oral sex
  • Hugging
  • Sexual fantasy
  • Touching each other’s genitals
  • Caressing
  • Kissing
  • Anal Sex
  • Massage
  • Vaginal Intercourse
  • Masturbation
  • Talking
  • Holding hands
  • Saying ‘I like you’
  • Cuddling on the couch
  • Grinding

By the end of 5th grade students in Common Core classrooms are expected to “Defind sexual orientation as the romantic attraction of an individual to someone of the same gender or different gender. Parents are totally unaware of this. Even if sexual education were appropriate in the public schools, this is not sex ed, this is social conditioning and totally outrageous.

Get informed. If you have kids or grandkids in school find out what is being taught! Look at their text books. Ask questions and be prepared to be surprised! And then you must join the fight. GET RID OF COMMON CORE!

Compare & Contrast: Obama Says They’re JV Wanna Bees, Michelle Bachmann Says Join ISIS & Lose Your Passport & Citizenship

September 10, 2014

It’s a shame the libtards have driven Michele Bachmann out of the House and she has declined to run for reelection next term, but she certainly is no lame duck. That’s right while Obama is preparing to give his big speech tonight on prime time (get ready for a long list of what he’s not going to do) and lying about his “JV moment”, Representative Michele Bachmann who sits on the House Intelligence Committee has introduced legislation that says if an American joins up with or affiliates or fights with ISIS or any other terrorist organization they will lose their passports and be denaturalized -lose their citizenship. As it should be! Take a look:

Use this link to contact your House & Senate leaders to urge them to support the Terrorist Denaturalization and Passport Revocation Act, H.R. 5408 . . . . and close our southern border!

Part 2 of 5 on Common Core; Designed to Produce Students to Become Cogs in the Govt Managed Economic Machine

September 8, 2014

Both political parties have tried to control education for years but you need to know this is ILLEGAL. Congress has passed 3 federal statutes prohibiting the US Dept of Education from supervising, directing or controlling curriculum.

  1. The General Educations Provisions Act
  2. The Dept of Education Organization Act
  3. The Elementary & Secondary Act of 1965

By pushing Common Core, the Obama Administration is violating all three of these federal statutes. And by committing to Common Core Standards, the states agree to implement the standards WORD-for-WORD. They may not change anything or delete anything and may add content by 15% of that particular content area. This amounts to negligible control or input by parents & taxpayers yet they still pay the bills.

Common Core is owned & copyrighted and if it’s not working in your local schools there is NO ONE you can call to change it. Common Core proponents claim the standards are rigorous & will make our students “college ready” (remember shovel ready??), but in reality they prepare students for community college level at best. Under the math standards, calculus is not even taught anymore which is a basic requirement for any students aspiring to higher education degrees in math or science. Geometry will be taught by an untested, experimental method taught nowhere else in the world. WTF?

There is an overall de-emphasis on studying classical literature instead favoring nonfiction “informational texts” such as government documents, technical manuals, brochures & menus. Huh? Sounds more like they plan to pump out a steady stream of govt workers and waitresses. The philosophy is not to over-educate students but to have them become cogs in the government managed economic machine.

Common Core is being pushed as the magic bullet to cure all of our education problems but those who promote this rigid national scheme are doing our students and our society no favors.

Pop Quiz: What’s The Most Populous Country in The Western World? Answer: The State of Denial

September 4, 2014

No doubt about it. The most populous state in the Western world is the state of denial.

After days of watching the bouncing ball -

  • “We have no strategy to defeat ISIS”
  • “We’re going to chase ISIS to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice” (gee, like the IRS, the VA monsters, Benghazi murders, etc.?)
  • “ISIS is the biggest threat to the western world we have ever seen”
  • “It’s not an American problem, we must get an international coalition”
  • “We can contain and manage this problem”

So I’m doing what I do for my news -cruising the internet and I see on Drudge a breaking story that an 82 year-old woman has been found beheaded in London.

beheading womenThis attack took place in broad daylight on a residential street and the Detective Chief Inspector John Sandlin of Scotland Yard said:

“Whilst it is too early to speculate on what the motive behind this attack was, I am confident based on the information currently available to me that it is not terrorist-related.”

Are you freaking kidding me??? It’s not related to terrorism? What planet did you just arrive here from? This is why we are where we are today mired in a World War, though nobody will call it that. We’re in a world war of the Islamists vs the rest of us worldwide. And anybody who doesn’t get it has their head up their posterior. Just as David Cameron does when he offered some new tough legislation and ideas to combat this enemy: a forced de-radicalization program to returning jihadis. More imbecilic claptrap from the brainiacks in charge.

You can’t bring these slim-balls to justice. You cannot de-radicalize them. And BTW, they are not criminals who deserve to be mirandized or given a trial. They must be killed! End of story, period.

Get a grip! . . . . . . and don’t give up your guns.

Part 1 of 5 on Common Core. This is Important & Will Impact You, Your Children & Your Pocketbooks and Your Liberty

September 1, 2014

You may or may not be aware of or even heard of it, but it’s time to sit up and pay attention because Common Core is already here.

Common Core (CC) will strip our states of their Constitutional authority over education. It empowers the federal govt to control school curricula. Taxpayers need to know that CC will lead to required national testing that will incur massive costs to school systems and taxpayers. Parents need to know the massive student-tracking system collects personal identifiable data on students and their families.

Common Core has already been adopted by 45 states & the District of Columbia. The last time a federal standardized curriculum was proposed in 1995 (the national history standards) it was rejected by the US Senate 99/1 because it was deemed too politically correct and anti-American (imagine that).

Who are the drivers of these new nationalized standards & why? The why is that there is a great deal of M-O-N-E-Y to be made at the educational trough. Some of the groups are:

  • a non-profit (ha-ha) group called Achieve Inc. which wrote the standards
  • the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has spent over $100 million
  • two Washington DC based trade associations that provided cover for the drafters of the Common Core standards

Once the Common Core content standards are adopted, they CANNOT be changed by the States. This is unconstitutional and completely undermines our 10th Amendment authority of the States over education. You need to understand what is happening in our government (public) schools and get involved. Go to Stop Common Core.
