Stupid School Censorship Nonsense

leave a comment »

I am really tired of the US public education system these days.  What was once a great institution for educating our youth has been systematically poisoned by liberals and teacher unions.  And like their incessant need to drag businesses down to the point where they cannot actually do business, based on their entitlement groanings, they have already ruined the public school system with their nonsense.

I am so glad we can home school our kids.

So today, I read a stirring article of how an 8th grader’s choice in attire has made him, literally, a criminal.  Jared Marcum got sent to the office at Logan Middle School, Logan, WV by the old bat lunch lady:

over wearing this shirt:

Now young Jared refused, so they brought in:

Who then put Jared in these:

Put him in front of this guy:

Where he might have to pay:

And or spend a year:\

While the rest of us in the country say:

This matter isn’t about a t-shirt.  It’s about a few bruised egos of a school official, a police officer, and a judge who will not allow some young punk to stand up to the system.   Beginning with a grossly bitter (and probably liberal) cafeteria worker’s dislike for the NRA,  He decides to make a statement in a way that isn’t vulgar, offensive, or anything, but yet, because the lunch lady can’t handle it and the cop can’t handle his defiance, the kid is now a criminal.

Now it’s funny because back in April 2012, the ACLU strangely argued a case for a kid wearing this:

The way I see it, I bet this kid would get student of the year if he wore this:

Seriously?

Schooldaze: Suspending Kids for Being Kids

leave a comment »

Every time I look at an article like this, all I can say is that I am so glad and blessed that our family home schools our kids.  With all the delirium going on after the whole Sandy Hook shooting, it seems that a new tragedy is forming – out-of-control paranoia and liberal over-sensitivity.

So, in another stellar example of how stupid people can be, a school in Hyannis, MA threatened to suspend a five-year old kid because he made a gun out of LEGO’s and started chasing his classmates with it. 

Sheesh. 

“We’re trying to create an atmosphere of respect,” says Barnstable School Superintendent Mary Czajkowski.  The principal noted, “it’s a threat to other children and other children could have been scared.’”

Respect is one thing, but this is so far over the top that it would be laughable if it wasn’t true.  Listen up, Mary, you’re not teaching respect, you’re teaching kids to be incapable of handling even the slightest problems.

ImageAnd then there are several schools in Maryland where students are being suspended for playing “war” and making finger guns.  

It’s funny; these kids could whip their teacher the middle finger and they get suspended or just a stern talking to by the principal, but if they make a finger-gun, “bang” they’re suspended from school.  Can these sissies get any more lame and stupid?  

The thing is, this wimpification of our society today driven by over-emotional liberalism, political correctness, and a severe inability to be tolerant is the real problem.  I’ve mentioned before that the shootings in schools are indeed tragic and I don’t mean to downplay them.  But now is not the time to throw our gumption and courage out of the window for fear of being offended.  

This is nothing new.  Liberals and socialists (sounds like redundancy to me), have, for years, reached into the schools to perform what Robert Small wrote in the Washington Times as “moral disarmament”.  Erode the principles of liberty and freedom and replace it with collectivism, socialism, social justice, and other wuss nonsense and the Democrats are filled with fresh drones to pull the lever for the next Barack Obama.

Now I am not an advocate for child abuse or anything, but today, our society seriously lacks coping skills.  We have reached a point where every little life problem is solved through medication.  We teach our kids to be unable to handle the harshness of life in a way that makes them as delicate as a Dresden doll.  Instead of teaching kids how to put on their “big boy/big girl pants”, we are doing diaper changes well past their toddler years.

So when these kids reach early adulthood, they don’t know how to handle life – except through violent media and gangsta rap, which teaches people that if they don’t like the police, they can shoot them.  And we call that crap art, er, First Amendment.

Even though these same idiots who believe in preserving the First Amendment are all about trashing the Second Amendment.

And these schools are the cesspools where liberalism festers and grows like a fungus on our children.  How sad.

Kids and Politics – Why Can’t We Just Leave Them Alone

leave a comment »

One thing about me – I love kids.  I always have.  They come at life with the wonder and without the bias that makes them so special.  Their minds are pure, free, and represent the things that we adults lose, sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly, in our society today.

Now my wife will tell y’all that I don’t do babies that well.  She’s right.  Babies and toddlers aren’t my thing, personally, but they are still very precious.  Even when they fill up a diaper.

For years and years now, political propagandists from all strains of the politic have depicted a certain kind of personality when being with kids.

I understand this first picture is just a painting.  But one would seriously wonder if the little girl being held truly knew the horrors that Joseph Stalin – the millions of people, including children, that died as the result of Stalin’s repression, famines, and corrupt collectivism.  But yet, how’s this for an enduring portrait of one of the pillars of the Soviet era.

The second photo is another one of history’s monsters – Adolf Hitler, who’s regime is responsible for the death of 50 million people, including the extermination of six million Jews.  And yet, this picture is supposed to tug at our heart-strings that the Fuhrer isn’t really that bad a guy, right?

Children really have no idea of the ramifications or the magnitude of the people that use them in these depictions.  So when I see this very recent photo of President Obama, surrounding himself with kids to talk up his wild-eyed liberal and socialist agenda, specifically with respect to his push for gun control, I find it manipulative and offensive.

By the way, when it came to gun control with kids. the people of the Founders day taught them along the same lines as what Clint Eastwood says:

I have a very strict gun control policy: if there’s a gun around, I want to be in control of it.Clint Eastwood

Perhaps I’m being unfair to That One for comparing his use of kids in his propaganda shoots, but then, it’s supposed to tug at all of us at the right (i.e. do it for the kids!) who are uncompromising in the Second Amendment.

But in my book, as much as I love kids, this is a new low for the President and his socialism.

Mr. President, I don’t care how low you go, who you try to put in front of me to make your points, the Second Amendment is not up for negotiation, ever.  Not even a little bit.

Random Thoughts About the Gun Control Discussion Craze

leave a comment »

Over the course of this entire so-called gun control, outside of the ramblings of the dopes in Washington and all the talking heads trying to manipulate the situation for their own aims, these are things that have come to my mind over the last week – questions to answer.  Actually, I know the answer to them, but I think within these questions are the line that makes this national conversation go nowhere.

  1. Liberals are always up in arms about the so-called “Living Constitution”. They yammer on about how the Constitution’s interpretation has to adapt to the changing times. This is especially true with respect to the First Amendment. However, they go and say “the Second Amendment was written when they were using muskets. If they knew that we would have semi-autos today – they would have written differently”. So we’re supposed to consider Original Intent for the Second Amendment, but not for the First, right?
  2. On the musket subject, if we recall, the weapons kept by the people were, in fact, military-grade weapons of that day. If it wasn’t for the ownership of military-grade weapons, which is what King George wanted to confiscate, the revolutionary militias would have never had the firepower to repel the British Redcoats. If it wasn’t for the militias, the US would have never gained independence.
  3. When idiots like Piers Morgan ask the question about whether people have a need for semi-autos like the AR-15, he doesn’t understand, it’s not about needs – it’s about rights. The minute a particular type of weapon is banned, that is an erosion of a right that was not to be infringed. Who in the heck is Piers Morgan to say that I need or don’t need a particular firearm – it’s none of his business. I’m with Alex Jones on this one – throw this dissenting foreigner out on his ear.
  4. When 16th century pirates would board a ship, they would have several pistols fully loaded so they would not be hindered by reloading. Using the same principle, someone wanting to shoot up a school could use several pistols fully loaded and get around that entire 10-round thing. It’s completely plausible to enter a crowded place and kill 20+ people with four fully-loaded 9mm Berettas. They could all be holstered and switched out as one went empty. The high-capacity magazine argument is nothing more than strawman. By the way, the Berettas would be easier to hide.
  5. Rahm Emanuel’s “use a crisis” doctrine is the key reason why we are having this nationwide discussion today – because the “morally superior and enlightened” liberals know that the salt-of-the-earth Americans won’t stand for their weapons to be taken away. They can’t create that culture of government dependency and statist fear without eliminating the one way for citizens to…well…shoot back. Remember, John Jay once said that, at best, government is a necessary evil and, at worst, an intolerable one. Independence is always won with firearms. Dependence comes when those firearms are taken away.
  6. Why is it that liberals gush happily groups like the ACLU that maintain a wide interpretation of the First Amendment when conservative groups ask for restricting content in video games and pornography, but they fault groups like the NRA when they maintain a wide interpretation regarding owning guns?

Stupid Chi-Coms Demand American Disarmament – Liberals Agree

leave a comment »

ImageI am really glad I live in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, unlike the Chinese who are part of the Land of the Oppressed.  And even though the Second Amendment is very much still a part of American law, it’s surprising that we even acknowledge how the Chinese want us to disarm. But more so, how our own liberal counterparts don’t care about what the Constitution says.  So here, I post the Second Amendment in its entirety.

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

So-called Liberals don’t believe in liberty because they are, this week, on the warpath about getting rid of people’s rights to own weapons.

But does it not surprise us that the greatest number of the shootings in the last couple of decades involving the deaths of more than three people occur in so-called gun-free zones?  The movie theater in Aurora, CO, Sandy Creek elementary school last week,  Columbine in Colorado…see what I mean?  They go to where they won’t get shot at.  In other words, do we know of any mass shootings going on in police stations?

We had one on a military base, but all of the soldiers’ weapons were in the arms room.

Heck…I’ve posted a long list of incidents at the end of this post.

ImageThing is, gun control laws don’t solve the problem.  In most every situation, the person doing the shooting was crazed and was carrying a gun where they weren’t allowed anyway.  The problem is not the laws, but the people doing the killing.  No gun control law can prevent a person from snapping and going on a killing spree.

These crazies attack and kill because of the real problem – lack of morality, standards, and this belief that the world owes them something.  When someone starts slaughtering people, it’s not because he had access to firearms – the problem began long before the dude picked up a gun.

So, liberals, leave my guns alone.  Just because you can’t read the Constitution doesn’t mean I won’t exercise my Second Amendment rights to protect myself from your tyranny.

It’s all about Freedom.  Live Free or Die.
