Spy Kids

From Grumpy Opinions comes another reason why Barack O, in 2012, has to go:

The Government Has Your Kids Spying On You

Back when I went to school we were taught that in terrible places like Russia and the other communist controlled dictatorships behind the Iron Curtain, the government made school kids spy on their parents. The kids were supposed to let their teachers know what they listened to on the radio or if their parents talked about the government… of course the kids were told this was so the government would know what they could do to help the students family help the student learn better.

We were told that only happened in communist or fascist dictatorships.. We were told that was one of the things that made us better than them. Fast forward 50 some years, the modern computer’s been invented, Barack Obama’s in the White House and we start to find out it not only can, it is happening here– under the guise of Obama’s Race to the Top Program Education Reform…

[…] As you saw in yesterdays blog, Bill Gates developed a program the makes extensive data collection on student possible, it shouldn’t come as any great surprise to find out Gates and Pearson have partnered, putting them both in a position to profit nicely from Education Reform. They stand to profit nicely enough Bill Gates has seen fit to spend several billion dollars lobbying for it’s passage.. One of the key aspect of the program is that with enough date you can do longitudinal studies.. Of course like Hitler, Stalin. Mao and Richard Nixon you can also compile lists of people you consider potential enemies..

The data sets from the National Data Education Model are set and ready to be used on your student. These are some of the things the government  wants to know about you, your relationships and the people you and yours associate with.

  • Base salary or wage
  • Blood type
  • Height and Weight
  • Dwelling Arrangement
  • Health Care History
  • Health Care Plan
  • Identification Results
  • Immunization Status
  • Insurance Coverage
  • Overall Health Status
  • Residence Block Number
  • Social Security Number
  • Voting Status and political beliefs
  • Sexual Preference
  • Religion
  • The number of teeth the kids’ parents have
  • Name it, odds are it’s there

I know this may sound a little extreme.. and a little hard to believe, but here it is again, all nicely laid out in the two tables on the page you will see when you open this document, National Data Education Model  Yes I know I posted that link a second ago, but it’s important you as an American Citizen are aware of the mind boggling amount of information the Federal Government wants on you as well as your children..

Is it legal… only if you ignore the US Constitution and the Privacy Act, But this Congress and especially the current batch of US Senators seems content let this President, and his Cabinet, Legislate by Regulation and ignore the Constitution.

The Department of Education (DOE) has proposed regulatory changes that would gut the primary federal student-privacy statute, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA imposes strict limits on how the government may use so-called Personally Identifiable Information (PII) collected on students by schools or government education agencies. Under the proposed changes to the regulations issued under FERPA, DOE would enable a system of massive data collection on students – potentially including such things as family income range, hair color, blood type, and health-care history – that could then be shared with other government agencies (both federal and in other states) for unspecified purposes.

This disclosure of PII could be accomplished without parents’ consent, and in most cases without even their knowledge.  And because the data-collection and sharing would begin when the student is in preschool and follow him even through his entry into the workforce, the possibilities of breach of privacy and unwarranted use of data are almost limitless.

    And people wonder why I home school….

  2. Well, they may as well remove the word “privacy” from the dictionaries because it no longer has a meaning. This is scary but I have no idea on how it can be controlled in this age of computers. Almost everything we do gets recorded and stored in a computer today. Now they want to put smart meters on your house and chips on your trash bins. BIG BROTHER is alive and well and growing at an exponential rate.

    Bob, I dropped by to thank you a little while a ago– I didn’t recognize Bluebird Bob, so I took a look at her site, one chuckle led to another..

    More than chips on garbage this is an attempt to categorized every person in the country by race, blood type, religion, birth weight and political views, even the number of days the kids mother carried the child

    The Department of labor already wants to get their paws on the data.

    Yep and like a cancer it needs to be stopped. The best way to do that is to make an example of the person doing it. One of the charges against Nixon was illegal data collection to create special lists.. That was the reason for the privacy act to begin with, this administration doesn’t need to create the lists to be in violation of the Constitution and the law..

    Just think my mother was worried when she had to prove I had my vaccinations. If I had a child in school they would get my name and contact number nothing more.

      FISHY, if I was still a young’un, I think my folks would be sending me to military school. All those schools ask for is name, rank, & serial number, right? Thanks for dropping by.
