Chuck Norris takes on the teacher’s unions:
Stalin-Style US Public Education (Patriot Update)
[…] when teachers unions muscle legislators like the Mafia and Democrats abandon their voting posts because they don’t like projected outcomes, haven’t we abandoned the very foundational principles of our republic? Where were the “be civil” mainstream media police last Friday morning, when union demonstrators screamed at legislators on the floor of the Wisconsin Assembly while they voted?
More proof of union dominance and monopoly came out Feb. 22, when Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board released a report that disclosed the top 10 lobbying groups in the state.
[…] The Wisconsin Education Association Council leads the pack of lobbyists, spending two times as much and five times the amount of time as its closest lobbying competitor in order to buy, bribe and bamboozle legislators to do as it wants.
[…] I wrote in the paperback expansion of my New York Times best-seller “Black Belt Patriotism: How To Reawaken America”: “The reason that government … (is) cracking down on private instruction has more to do with suppressing alternative education than assuring educational standards. The rationale is quite simple, though rarely if ever stated: control future generations and you control the future. So rather than letting parents be the primary educators of their children — either directly or by educating their children in the private schools of their choice — (government wants) to deny parental rights, establish an educational monopoly run by the state, and limit private education options. It is so simple any socialist can understand it. As Joseph Stalin once stated, ‘Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.’”
The resolution was authored by Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi has signed on as a co-sponsor, along with Sens. John Boozman, R-Ariz.; James Inhofe, R-Okla.; John Isakson, R-Ga. and Mike Johanns, R-Neb. Burr offered a similar resolution last year.
