Me, Too – I Think

8 June 2012

Heads will roll if Atlas shrugs…

I invite everyone who frequents this site to read this article (<– that’s a link, by the way) on patriotpost.us.

I would simply repeat it here, but, unlike Mark Alexander, I have not obtained permission to do so.

The content of this article is something EVERY citizen of this country needs to understand – not just about our educational system, but regarding the tenets upon which our country was founded and how the “progressives” have managed to bastardize it – mostly within this and the last century, and mostly through the government mandated-and-managed public education system. More detail regarding how the US public educational system (The AFT, NEA, and US Department of Education, by name) is actually harming our children is available in this article here – notably, written by an ex New York City public school teacher – and one-time New York City Teacher of the Year. But be warned: it’s a long – but fruitful! – read.

A twisted view

6 June 2012

Yes, yes! Now I understand your perspective…

After the Wisconsin recall election results were reported, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who formerly gloated that the defeat of Walker was imminent, and that it would represent a referendum against conservative fiscal policy,  tweeted: “Despite the disappointing outcome, the effort sent Scott Walker a message that his brand of divisive politics is offensive & wrong.”

Really? REALLY?! The recall effort getting “owned” by Walker sent him a message that what he was doing in the office of Governor was somehow wrong? By winning the election? Huh. I don’t get it. But, too, I never realized Florida was on another planet.

The message the recall sent, as I read it, is that the unions no longer have free reign over the Wisconsin economy. The message, as I read it, was that, even with the traditional widespread liberal cheating at the polls (things like, oh, I don’t know – say, things like the  rumored busloads shipped in from Detroit by the, ahem, “union at the Chrysler plant” to vote for Barrett…), conservatism won the day. The message, as I read it, is that liberalism is not desirable once its destructive nature is realized.

Oddly, I don’t find Walker’s “brand of politics” anywhere near as offensive nor divisive – particularly in terms of race and class –  as I see those of the likes of the mainstream media, Øbama, Reid, Pelosi and, yes: that strange visitor from another planet, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  But, then: I’m a natural-born  citizen. Of earth…

7 June 2012 Update: That other strange visitor from another planet, internet inventor Al Gore, voiced his agreement with Wasserman Schultz’s opinion on his pet network’s Viewpoint “news” show. I guess Tennessee must be in a similar orbit to that of Florida. Well, really: we’ve known that all along, haven’t we?
