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.

Competing Liberal Views

leave a comment »

Liberals sometimes never cease to amaze me.  Not in the amazing as in the positive impressiveness, but the amazing as in, just when I think liberals can’t get any more dumb, something like this occurs and…well, I’m amazed.

To wit, the Washington state legislature is considering a bill, introduced by the Democrats, to impose a tax on electric-powered vehicles.  Essentially, by citing things like road wear-and-tear, the Democrats are thinking they need to impose an annual tax on cars that don’t use gasoline.  Of course, gas-powered cars pay for their fair share of the wear-and-tear at the pump, each time they fill up.  But electric-cars, well, not so much, since they get plugged in every night.

On the surface, you would think this is actually an equitable solution because it’s “only fair” and the lib-crats are all about imposing their definition of “fairness” on the population by virtue of big government.  But this one works against the liberal environmentalist mantra of trying to reduce the dependence on petroleum.

Now, while I don’t advocate this, since I don’t want to be accused of giving the lib-crats any ideas, there is a way to achieve the same objective and “have their cake and eat it too”.  What if they imposed that additional tax on all of us evil petroleum users and give their electric cars the advantage of tax-free operation?  After all, the iron rules of economy:

If you want more of something, you subsidize it.

If you want less of something, you tax it.

So, effectively, by the Washington state assembly advocating the taxation of electric vehicles, they are saying to the world that they are willing to have more taxes at the expense of losing their effort to eliminate the need for gas-powered cars. 

One lib-crat ideal in competition with another lib-crat ideal.  Amazing, right?

Yeah, me neither.

Those Pesky Things Called Elections

leave a comment »

I’ve said it before, elections are one of those things that have consequences.  But I’m not the only one who has said that.  Over the course of the last four years, the Lib-crats have pontificated that 2006 has been about the “mandate of the people”.  And with that power, boy howdy did they ever run with it:

Liberals doing their thing. Gotta love Marxine Waters playing her socialist card.

 

So today, Nancy goes in and says, “elections should not matter as much as they do” to a group at Tufts University this week.  She certainly wasn’t thinking that way in November 2006 when she gave that self-congratulatory speech, now was she?

But now, with the Tea Party firmly tearing through the Washington establishment, Nancy is missing those good ol’ days when people didn’t stand on beliefs – they just stood on what special interest would fund them at the time.

Elections are supposed to matter a lot because if people don’t like the direction of their government, they should have the power to change it.  November 2010 demonstrated that, after four years of change promises made by lib-crats, which only made the problem worse by failing to pass a budget – instead, spending every waking hour pushing the socialistic Health Deform bill. 

By the way, Nancy, while you may call Republicans your friends, I scarcely can think of a Republican who would openly call you their friend.  You represent government that no one really wants – at best a necessary evil, at worst an intolerable one.  And you’ve never been the best at anything, except for caricatures.

In closing, I give you this insta-classic video to play over and over until either you get tired of it or Nancy gets actually voted out of the House…or your computer crashes.

AOL’s Newest Folly and Olbermann’s Meaningless Gig

with 3 comments

Well, this week has seen some pretty hair-brained things with respect to how the liberal media is working to continue to position itself to spout more of its nonsense in the world.  When you get a two-fer of these things, you just gotta blog it – because it’s much like watching dirty water go down a drain.

Back in my early days of internet access, I used to use America Online.  But over time, as AOL started instituting stupid rules and it began to be less and less interesting – I got a local dialup ISP and never looked back.  Since that time, AOL has gone to the dogs – that was over fifteen years ago.

Well, now it’s gone to the Ariannas.

Specifically, I’m going on about AO-Hell buying up the Huffington Post (aka the Huff and Puff news) for $315 million.  And from that acquisition, Arianna will lead the Huffington Post Media Group which will be merging HuffPo with AOL’s content.

"I want to stay forever," Huffington told analysts on a conference call. "I want this to be my last act.

Like they ever had any of relevance.  But then, I’m really wondering here – who is really getting gypped here? 

By joining up with AOL, it may very well be your last act, Arianna.  But hey, an ultra-lib faux-news site bonding with a washed up internet company – maybe Arianna will do the next "You’ve Got Mail" in her scratchy Greek voice.  That should get the liberals raving.  More like, "You’ve Got Liberal Hate-Speech!"

One other move that I just thought was choice was Keith Olbermann’s move to the Al Gore channel.  Essentially the former Mr. (p)MSNBC, still whining and grumbling because NBC wouldn’t pay him what he thought he was worth, has gone off to Current TV?

Does anyone here even know who Current TV is?   Does anyone really care? 

Wow.  I wonder if that place where Current TV is and where Huff-AOL-Puff is going is like the esoteric elephant grave yard or something – a place where dumbkopfen liberal ideas go to die.

Oh well – *yawn*.  I’m bored now.

Show Your Papers – Liberal Hypocrisy in Motion

with 2 comments

I don’t like to parrot other people in the blogosphere, nor do I like to reverb stuff I hear on talk radio; I just don’t feel right about it because I think the stuff that gets written on The Rabid Conservative  should be my own thoughts.  Perhaps it’s a pride thing; who knows? 

But today, I tuned into Rush Limbaugh for a brief moment while I was running an errand and I heard a caller, "Tim from San Diego” call in and the comments he made, information to which Rush had forgotten and didn’t correlate, were stunningly brilliant.

Turns out, with all the Arizona hub-bub, all the liberals are losing their minds over the new immigration bill, calling it “racist” and "reminiscent of Nazi Germany”.  I do agree that the bill would be unnecessary if the Federal Government had done its job in protecting the border.  It’s not racist just because much of the 12 million illegal immigrant problem just happens to be Hispanic.  With all the other laws out there that require you to show proof of valid identification, the fact that some 42 states out of 50 require you to carry an ID on your person, the fact that you have to have a background check to get a job most anywhere these days, it seems to me that the issue for the other side has nothing to do about race, but rather, preventing people from coming into the US so they can suck off of the system.

So while all the protests are blowing up because, suddenly, we’re advocating “show your papers” with respect to immigration, the liberals are asking us to forget something – proper ID and showing papers is something that we do all the time. 

  1. Do you remember when the Democrats in Congress were requiring US citizens show their residency papers (even within the district/precinct!) before they were allowed into the town hall meetings?   So the Dems can ask for papers to participate in town hall meetings, but not to be in the country.
  2. Or how about when Joe Wurzelbacher (Joe the Plumber) made objective points towards, then candidate, Barack Obama about “spreading the wealth around”, which caused an official from the State of Ohio to start to illegally dig into Wurzelbacher’s background, looking for dirt.  What ever happened to the Fourth Amendment?  Oh, that doesn’t count when liberals are trying to discredit people who don’t agree with their statements.
  3. Then there is James O’Keefe, the fellow who drove the sharp bladed knife of truth into ACORN that eventually led to their downfall.  Well, when he was busted outside of Rap. Mary Landrieu’s office and arrested for allegedly tampering with her phone line, what was the first thing he had to do?  Show papers and documentation.
  4. And let’s not forget dear old Aunt Zeituni Onyango, Barack Obama’s aunt, who is in the USA illegally.  Turns out she has been denied asylum on a couple of occasions, but is presently living in the projects while her fate is decided.  She’s been told to leave, but presently, is in defiance of that directive.

These examples are noted liberal incursions into the documents of people, without discretion to things like privacy and such.  However, the law in Arizona is being touted as racist (although there is nothing racist in the bill) because it effectively provides a means for Arizona to control the number of illegals in their state. 

Illegal immigration isn’t just about people who come to the US wanting to find work.  It’s about protecting our borders from people who want to sneak in to do horrible crimes.  Or did we forget about Chandra Levy, who was murdered in 2001.  Presently, the chief suspect in this murder is Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who is currently in the Pen for assaulting two other women within the same park where Levy’s remains were found.  Even if Guandique is exonerated for Levy’s murder, the fact that he’s here illegally, committing crimes is representative of the overall risk.   It’s not racist to say that much of the drug and human trafficking, as well as the gang activity at the border is coming from Mexico. 

It’s not racist to be asked to show papers, so if we’re going to say that showing papers is like Nazi Germany, then the next time I am asked, particularly by a liberal, to whip out my ID, I am going to accuse them of being a Nazi loving fascist. 

Can’t have it both ways, people.

Congress Hits A New Low

leave a comment »

Well, it was only inevitable – the so-called 2006 mandate that ushered the Democrats into power and culminated to the 2008 win of Barack Obama has now shown that it was dismally unable to deliver on any of its misguided promises

In 2006, the GOP lost the farm, not because of a rejection of conservative ideas, but because of the liberals and moderates that have infiltrated the Republican party.   The GOP showed itself not much different than the Democratic party, not because of the failure of the parties, but because both have been swayed by stupid progressive values and programs that seek to rob power from the people and give it to the all-powerful state.

Since the GOP lost its distinction as being the “party of Reagan”, the “conservative choice”, and basically reneging on the Contract With America that hoisted the GOP into power in 1994, they have recently showed that they are just as willing to spend ridiculous amounts of money on entitlements and earmark projects and do very little to protect the traditional family.  They have sought to sit in the middle and try to appeal to the more moderate people in the country  (which I defy anyone to show me a true moderate without showing me someone who is conflicted in their beliefs)

Well, today we’ve been informed by Rasumussen that Congress’ approval rating is about ready to fall into the single digits.   More and more Americans, Democrats and Republicans are showing staunch disapproval for the job that Congress is doing.  Perhaps it’s for different reasons, such as the libs railing that they couldn’t get health care passed while the conservatives look at the Congress as a cesspool for progressivism.  Either way, more people are unhappy than happy these days.

I get the feeling the hammer is about to fall on Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats that remain in Congress after November 2010.  Harry Reid is doomed, three others (Dodd, Bayh, and Dorgan) are jumping ship, and the Dems are looking worse and worse everyday for their respective elections.

The tide is about to change…

To a Far-Left Liberal, Almost Anyone Else Is a Rabid Conservative

with 2 comments

Since Congress, as a norm, ignores its constituents, except during the campaign – and then candidates just tell the people what they want to hear in order to get elected, the townhall meeting becomes the last direct forum which everyday citizens can take part in their government.

Over the last few days, we have sat back and watched left wing, Democrat congressional types go home to their districts to face the music for their tomfoolery in Congress as of late.  This particular incident has been a firebrand of the liberal blogosphere over the last week:

 

First off, Sebelius is a hack.  She gets up and gripes how she is not a member of Congress, never has been, as if it is some sort of excuse for not being attentive to what the House produced as a potential bill.  She even responded with the statement about how Sen. Specter could not read legislation for a bill that has not even been written yet (an obvious red herring saying that Specter should not at least be up on the House bill, just because he’s a Senator).  Sebelius was, however, unaware that the House bill would require her to develop “measurements of gender”, but she didn’t even know what that meant.

And then, to listen to Specter drone on about how he has a staff that pieces out the bill and reads it is not the same as taking a few hours and reading the legislation, at least in brief.

Enough of the Mob

 

But the larger issue here is with respect to the crowds of meeting goers that are quite upset about his bill.  Since Congress, as a norm, ignores its constituents, except during the campaign – and then candidates just tell them what they want to hear in order to get elected, the townhall meeting becomes the last forum which everyday citizens can take part in their government.  So the masses come out, armed with a battery of direct, no BS questions, written with a good amount of irritation.  They come out in droves to let their leaders know just how much they disapprove of their actions.  (the left wingers aren’t going to come out so much, since they like the idea of Marxist healthcare).  Instead of coming out, though, the left wing begins to run attack ads against the people, like this one:

So, rather than the left wing try to answer the questions of the right (since all of this stimulus/government takeover garbage is supposed to be a good idea), the right wing gets demonized as the “angry mob”.

Well, we are angry!  And I guess if we get together in a large group, then yes, we’re an angry mob.  And you know what?  The liberals can’t stand it when we get together and protest in the same way that they do.  They can get together and protest a war outside the gates of a military installation, throwing out how much they hate George Bush and how much he needed to be impeached and what not and it’s okay.  But when we get together, we’re the vitriolic angry mob, filled with rage and hate against The One.

So, liberals, before you get to hating yourselves, perhaps in a faint possibility of hope, try to listen to why we are angry.

  1. We are sick of the government.  We have watched time and time again as government programs are introduced that provide a handout to people while eroding our personal liberties and freedoms.
  2. We are sick of our country being directed by big-game tort lawyers and union bosses rather than “We the People”. 
  3. We don’t want to pay our hard earned dollars for abortions for women who can’t control their sexual appetites. 
  4. We don’t want to classify two men or two women in a homosexual union the same as traditional marriage. 
  5. We don’t want to cede control of our parental rights and education of our children to the federal government, just because the UN thinks we can’t raise our kids right. 
  6. We don’t want rationed health care or socialistic medicine when all we need to do is just open health care to the free market and knock off the tort insanity.
  7. We don’t want the government spending our hard earned tax dollars helping Blue State Obama supporters as you call it ‘economic recovery’ while we see it as “pay-offs”.
  8. We’re sick of you touting Global Warming and Climate Change as a religious means of wresting more money from us to give to your Green Movement allies.
  9. We’re angry about your attempts at Social Justice, meanwhile the ethnic group having to make all the reparations and fixes are Caucasian males.  (see my post on racism)
  10. We’re sick of progressive liberalism, pushing our country, bit by bit, towards socialism.  We think Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Patrick Henry, John Jay, and Ben Franklin were far more intelligent than Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin and wish you would understand that too.

Do you get it now?  You won the majority of voters that voted, but not the majority of Americans.  You call the last eight a dismal failure of domestic and foreign policy as a means of blame shifting.  You play partisan games and engage in class warfare, rather than adopting the rhetoric that Obama touted during the election of getting past partisan politics.  And you can’t stand it when we don’t agree with you – so you cry foul and call us rabid.  Well, I guess to you, anyone is a rabid conservative.

But while we are angry with you, we don’t hate you.  We love you with God’s love, as well as fellow Americans.  It’s too bad you can’t accord us the same thing, but then, liberalism teaches to hate in order to get.

So, we’ll continue to be angry and you continue to hate.  And we’ll just see you in 2010, because I’ll tell you this…you will see change – as you see us get angrier and angrier and the Congress begin to shift back to the center-right, where it should be.  By the way, without American anger, you wouldn’t be an American liberal today.  Think about that.
