That Entitlement Mentality...

>> January 29, 2010

where does it come from you ask? From the top down it would seem.
A recent article in World Net Daily suggests that Speaker Pelosi is hosting a year round frat party and we're not invited!


"Speaker Pelosi has a history of wasting taxpayer funds with her boorish demands for military travel," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said today. "And these documents suggest the Speaker's congressional delegations are more about partying than anything else."
Pelosi, D-Calif., recently joined President Obama on a Judicial Watch list of Top 10 corrupt politicians because of her "sense of entitlement," the group said.
"Politicians believe laws and rules (even the U.S. Constitution) apply to the rest of us but not to them. Case in point: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her excessive and boorish demands for military travel. Judicial Watch obtained documents from the Pentagon in 2008 that suggest Pelosi has been treating the Air Force like her own personal airline," the evaluation said

Left Wing Propaganda Forced on TX Teachers‏

>> January 27, 2010

In this installment of The Peter Morrison Report:

Public schools in Texas are already steeped in political correctness, but the never-ending assault on our children's minds by way of liberal indoctrination is getting even worse. A recent report from a whistle blower reveals the far left-wing agenda being pushed on our children in the guise of education.

Click here to send a fax to TEA Commissioner Robert Scott to let him know Texans do not want their teachers to be subjected to left-wing propaganda:

Full report:

Recently the conservative website WorldNetDaily featured a shocking report from someone in the process of applying for teaching certification in Texas.  As part of the certification process, he
was required to read several extremely disturbing online articles. He chose to remain anonymous for fear of being punished for speaking out, because there are radicals deeply entrenched in the
Texas educational system who don't want this information to be made public.

Some of the materials that this prospective teacher was forced to read if he wanted to be certified to teach in a public school had absolutely nothing to do with education as most people understand it. Instead, their purpose was instilling in future teachers the idea that their role in kids' lives is to act as agents of "social change" in the classroom, all in the name of "multiculturalism."

Multiculturalism is one of those liberal buzzwords that are so dangerous precisely because they can mean whatever the speaker or writer wants them to mean.  In the past few decades, innocuous sounding terms like "social justice" and "celebrating diversity" have become code words used to sneak a radical left wing agenda past an unsuspecting public.  Extreme liberals now want to use teachers to indoctrinate our children in the name of multiculturalism.

On one of the websites that is required reading for future teachers, there's a discussion of what multiculturalism means. Even this site admits that there's no fixed meaning; but all the
definitions they propose make it clear just what multiculturalism is all about - indoctrinating our kids with a radical left-wing agenda. One of their suggested definitions is "education change as
part of a larger societal transformation in which we more closely explore and criticize the oppressive foundations of society and how education serves to maintain the status quo -- foundations such as white supremacy, capitalism, global socioeconomic situations, and
exploitation."

This ideological jargon makes it perfectly clear what our kids will be learning if we don't put a stop to this.  They'll be taught that white people are a bunch of racists; free enterprise is unjust and socialism means fairness for all; and the main reason third world nations are impoverished is because they've been exploited by greedy, oppressive Western countries.  In other words, instead of being given a real education, our children will be taught the philosophy espoused by Barack Obama and his former pastor Jeremiah Wright, who famously said "white folk's greed runs a world in need."

That's just the beginning.  If there's one trait all left wingers share, it's their unrelenting hatred of traditional family values. The new "certification standards" that liberals want to impose on
Texas teachers are no exception. Future teachers are warned that they must not harbor any feelings of "heterosexism," and that one of their main functions as a teacher will be to eliminate this same "heterosexism" in their students.  This is apparently just as important as teaching reading, writing and arithmetic, if not more so, because schools now serve a higher purpose, which is "the transformation of society" to eliminate all forms of "prejudice" and "oppression."

Heterosexism is the radical new PC term for the belief that homosexual conduct is immoral, or in any way inferior to heterosexual behavior.  It's now established liberal doctrine that homosexuality and heterosexuality are moral equivalents which should be treated exactly alike, and anyone who disagrees is guilty of "hate."  Of course, traditional Americans don't view homosexuality as being on an equal plane with opposite sex attraction, and part of the teacher's job is to eradicate this "privileging" of heterosexuality in the minds of our children.  The ultimate goal is the very "transformation of society", in the words of the radical left wing website future teachers are required to read.

What would a "transformed society" look like to these people? Look no further than a book published in October of last year by Sarah Schulman to see what they have in mind for us.  Schulman is a lesbian activist, as well as a professor at City University of New York, College of Staten Island.  She's also a Fellow at New York University, and is considered one of the leaders in the fight against "homophobia" and "heterosexism" in America.  Here's what one reviewer says of her book, Ties That Bind: Familial Homophobia and Its Consequences: "In her book, Schulman offers a strategy for dealing with homophobic trauma: Homophobia should be identified as a sickness, with families court-ordered into treatment programs." To be clear, Schulman is not talking about people who physically assault homosexuals.  She's talking about people who regard homosexuality as immoral. She says they're "sick" and they should be forced into "treatment" until they're "cured."

That's just one aspect of the "transformation of society" agenda Texas teachers are now expected to take part in.  These social engineers want Texas schools to teach this moral insanity to our
innocent children, in order to lead the next generation into their brave new world, where free enterprise is oppression, Mom and Dad are racists, America and the rest of the Western World are the cause of third world poverty, and Christianity and traditional moral values are labeled as hate.

It's imperative that we raise our voices against our schools being used to perpetrate this outrageous radical agenda.  This sort of stuff is the last thing our future teachers should be  reading, but some of them are being forced to if they want to become teachers. When WorldNetDaily contacted the Texas Education Agency about this, their spokesperson downplayed it, saying these new "standards" aren't statewide; Texas schools are divided into 20 Education Service Center regions, and so it's only a regional issue, as if that settled the matter.

That's not good enough.  None of the Education Service Centers should be requiring prospective teacher to read through this radical left wing propaganda in order to become certified to teach.
They shouldn't even be recommending this sort of material in the first place.  Our children are our most precious heritage; they're not pawns to be programmed and used by liberals to  accomplish their radical goals of "transforming society." 

Contact Texas Education Commissioner Robert Scott and demand that he put a stop to this practice of forcing prospective teachers to read these materials, no matter where in Texas it's  happening:

Marine Steps on IED Without Scratch

Awesome!
My Grandma sent me this, it's about young Marine who grew up in her church.

 On a Marine foot patrol here through the predawn chill of Friday morning, he stepped on a pressure-plate rigged to roughly 25 pounds of explosives. The device, enough to destroy a pickup truck or tear apart several men, was buried beneath him in the dusty soil.
It did not explode.
Lance Corporal Mathison’s weight triggered the detonation of one of the booby trap’s two blasting caps. But upon giving an audible pop and tossing small stones into the air, the device failed to ignite its fuller charge — a powerful mix of Eastern Bloc mortar rounds and homemade explosives spiked with motorcycle parts, rusty spark plugs and jagged chunks of steel.

God Blesses Our Troops.

Glad to see the NYT can publish some good news every now and again.

Obummer Reads to Sixth Graders

>> January 25, 2010

He has finally found his target audience.
This has been circulating lately. Word is that this image is NOT photoshopped. Take a look.

Now, I wouldn't bother commenting on this normally but - ahem - as a person who works with sound systems quite often I notice that there are three Three THREE! speakers, or as we in the trade call them, monitors, Monitors MONITORS! in front of Obummer. This is a wee bit of overkill. Basically those are used in the music biz to hear one's self over the music a fully amplified band is going to throw at you as a singer, or as a speaker in front of a large audience with a Public Address system. Obummer looks like he's in a classroom not much bigger than my studio's playroom. I certainly don't need even one One ONE! monitor in there just to hear myself talk to a room full of sixth graders. Mr. Prez. is really and truly in love with his voice to use any Any ANY! monitors at all in this situation.

We are really in trouble if he sees himself in the light this portrays. I mean really. He's also got the freakin Presidential Seal Prayer Rug, a Presidential Podium plus two Two TWO! teleprompters and the Secret Service agent to keep him warm and cozy. Most people I know would have walked in, pulled up a little kiddie chair and talked to those little people like they were well, little people, young men and women, not serfs or peons to be impressed or spoken down to, which is just what he did.

What our Prez wants is...
More Cowbell.

Update: It seems the Robot made a wee mistake pointing out the three Three THREE! monitors on the floor in front of Obummer. After closer review and searching, I've found out that two of those were the teleprompter bases and the man standing behind is in fact Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Sorry about that Arne. Although I must say, you're looking in pretty fit there. I thought you were Secret Service. Ooops! I still would contend that the center box IS a monitor speaker which, with the teleprompters is overkill  for a speech to 30 students.

Ok, there it is. My first correction. Now, If we could get some in Congress to recognize some of their mistakes, we'd get along just fine.
Cheers!

Obama Bans No-Bid Contracts!

... ummm, not so much. From Fox News

A synopsis of the contract published on the USAID Web site says Checchi & Company will "train the next generation of legal professionals" throughout the Afghan provinces and thereby "develop the capacity of Afghanistan's justice system to be accessible, reliable, and fair."
The legality of the arrangement as a "sole source," or no-bid, contract was made possible by virtue of a waiver signed by the USAID administrator. "They cancelled the open bid on this when they came to power earlier this year," a source familiar with the federal contracting process told Fox News.
That's nice. Friends of the Obama's and the DNC teaching the Afghani's how to be just and fair? Where did they get that knowledge?

Funny how the left will bitch and moan all over the place when the right does something questionable, but when the shoe is on the other foot, well, let's just say that I'll bet the hue and cry will be far removed from the front pages of the NY Times or any MSM sources.

I wonder how "fair" I could be with 24 million.

Astroturf - alicious

I love it when the projectors get caught projecting...

The Ellie Light story is blowing up the blogosphere. In case you haven't read about it, there seems to be a few letters showing up verbatim published in newspapers across the country claiming to be written by individuals in that region but are obvious plagiarisms of the same talking points memo. One could call it propaganda from the left. Certainly seems that way.

There are a couple of bloggers already in the lead on this, so I'll hand it off to them....

Patterico's Pontifications has an ongoing expose'.

NiceDeb also has some interesting points.
