School Daze

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.’”

Resolution Would Welcome Home Veterans of Vietnam War

A U.S. Senate resolution would set March 30 this year as Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.

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.

–No Democrats on the list.  Same as ’68.

    This post drives the point home for sure Bob. Chuck Norris is always the way to get things done. The Blogger Flood Gates have opened up on this issue and our voices are being heard. Now more than ever we must continue to expose the lies.

    Welcome Home Vietnam Vets? Seriously?

    I wouldn’t want to rush this and let it happen prematurely or anything…

    From RealClearPolitics: Michael Moore On Wealthy People’s Money: “That’s Not Theirs, That’s A National Resource, It’s Ours”

    “They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own — they’re putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. We all have this — we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it,” Michael Moore told Laura Flanders of GRITtv.

    I agree–I expect a large personal check from this bovine windbag within the week.

    Michael Moore is just another pimple on the world’s ass. (a big ugly one).

    The bigger story today is the Airmen killed in Germany by yet another wacko that has access to our troops who are waiting to be re-deployed.
    Our volunteer troops do not deserve to be blindsided like this.
    It is not what they signed up for.
    I assume more information will be forthcoming on this issue.
    This was in no circumstance a level field.
