The Peter Morrison Report
 
Summary of this week's report:
 
The conservatives on the Texas Board of Education deserve our
thanks for working to make school textbooks accurate and unbiased. 
It was a long, tough fight, but our side prevailed in one of the
major battles for the minds of the school children of Texas.  Left
wing ideologues were outraged that conservatives stood up and
blocked them from imposing even more liberalism on state textbooks,
and so were their friends in the mainstream media, but in the end,
the conservative bloc was able to keep a lot of liberal bias out of
our kids' social studies textbooks.
 
Full report:
 
Over the course of the past several months the national media has
been discussing the school textbook wars in Texas.  Typically,
almost every article or report was actually liberal sermonizing
disguised as journalism.    In the past few weeks, these stories
have reached a hysterical crescendo in the mainstream media, as it
became clear that conservatives were going to triumph in our
efforts to keep some of the liberal bias out of school textbooks.
 
There are few things in life that will have more influence on the
future than what our children are taught in the classrooms of
public schools.  Private and home schools are wonderful, and I'm a
strong supporter of both, but the number of students in public
schools is far, far greater than the numbers enrolled in private
and home schooling, combined.  Unfortunately, liberals realized
this long before conservatives did, and over the decades our kids'
textbooks have been increasingly filled with left-wing propaganda.
 
Conservatives finally woke up back in the 1970s, thanks to the
heroic efforts of people like Mel and Norma Gabler, the husband and
wife team who spent decades exposing the liberal indoctrination
that was being passed off as education in Texas schools.  Even
since then, the school textbook approval process in the Lone Star
state has been a major battleground between conservatives and
liberals.  This year was no different, as the guidelines for social
studies textbooks that will be in force for the next ten years were
up for review.
 
I was a member of one of this year's panels that produced the
recommendations the Board of Education was seeking to implement. 
From my first hand experience in the earlier part of this process,
I can tell you the story of what really happened.  It's nothing
like the heavily biased and distorted accounts that appeared in the
media across the country.  To hear the MSM tell it, Texas was
caught up in some sort of right wing extremist hysteria; a
combination of a witch hunt to eliminate from history books
anything conservatives disagree with and an iron fisted campaign
to force a false version of history on our schools simply to impose
a far right wing agenda.
 
That was how the media reports spun things, but in reality, what
was happening was the exact opposite.  Conservatives were the ones
who were fighting to remove liberal orthodoxies with no basis in
facts from our school textbooks and to prevent the left-wingers
from making the texts even more liberal than they already were. 
Self proclaimed "progressives", of course, pretend to be completely
objective when it comes to textbook content, so in their minds
these left leaning school books aren't slanted at all, but
completely unbiased.
 
That's nonsense, of course, and it's why liberals have been
squealing like stuck pigs for the past few months, trying to scare
Texans and Americans with horror stories about "right wing
extremism" taking over our state school board, when all
conservatives were doing was restoring a small measure of balance. 
Don McLeroy, the conservative Republican who heads the Texas Board
of Education, called the liberals out for their dishonesty in this
regard.  "We are adding balance...History has already been skewed.
Academia is skewed too far to the left."
 
Few things get liberals more agitated than talking about the
Christian heritage of the United States, and it's no coincidence
that much of the negative media coverage centered on this subject. 
As SBOE member David Bradley pointed out, "There's a hostility
toward faith, specifically Christianity."
 
Liberal revisionists refuse to acknowledge that most of the
Founding Fathers believed that religious principles should inform
government, and for them, religion meant Christianity, period.
 
In addition, when liberals don't get their way, they usually start
slinging accusations of racism.  According to the Austin
American-Statesman, liberal board member Mary Helen Berlanga spent
almost all of her time on the board trying to get lots of minor
historical figures added to textbooks simply because they were
minorities.  Berlanga was the one who was obsessed with race, but
when conservatives blocked her proposals because they believe
people should be included in history books because of their
contributions, not the color of their skin, she tried to make
conservatives out to be the racists.  As she left a board meeting
in a huff, she slandered the conservative board members:  "We can
just pretend that this is a white America.  Hispanics don't exist."
 
The irony is that just before she walked out of the meeting,
Berlanga had made a motion to identify minority Medal of Honor
winners. In her mind, it's apparently only important to study Medal
of Honor winners that aren't white, yet she has the gall to accuse
the conservative board members of being racist!
 
Thankfully the conservatives on the Board of Education refused to
be intimidated by these reckless accusations of racism (by people
obsessed with race themselves), and didn't cave in.  They even had
the courage to remove "hip hop music" as a "significant cultural
contribution" to be studied by Texas school kids.  Their victory
isn't just important for Texas, though, because many textbook
publishers follow Texas' guidelines when coming out with books for
the national school market.    So, thanks to the brave
conservatives on the Board of Education, for the next ten years
millions of school textbooks will be more accurate and balanced. 
They deserve our thanks.
 
The State Board of Education is receiving a lot of negative media
attention for doing the right thing and they need to hear
encouragement from their constituents. Please send them an email at:

Understanding the Different Forms of Government

I have said more than a few times within these pixellated pages that we have been slipping towards Democracy and Socialism. Some would say that we have embraced them already. Some of our leaders most assuredly have. It is my opinion that in order to right the course of our ship of state the people should again be educated. That education has been lacking in our schools for quite a while.
Here is a video shared by a fellow TEA Party member on the various forms of government. Simple and easy to understand.

Where we are in terms of any "ism" is not relative but absolute, even if hard to define or point out on a graph. However, where we are to me though is not as important right now as where we are going. That is why I resist even the smallest encroachment of liberty, because where we are going is not to freedom but to slavery and tyranny.

Excellent Post...

reminding us from whence this putridity sprung...

Socialism is fueled by a world view that is diametrically opposed to Christocentric concepts regarding the human condition. Christianity holds that man was created in a perfect condition, sinned/fell from grace and because of sin requires a Redeemer to satisfy the righteous judgement of a Holy God. The problems of the human condition will disappear once sin is finally dealt with.

Socialism is an expression of humanism; humanism is a system of belief wherein Man does not need to be redeemed, he needs to be ruled. Once a perfect government is formed, then all the problems of the human condition will disappear.

Ryan to NYT: Repeal & Replace

Ed Morrissey picked up on Rep. Paul Ryan at the NYTimes today. Taking the message to the heart of the beast you might say.

No one can accuse Rep. Paul Ryan of merely carrying coals to Newcastle.  He takes his argument for the repeal of ObamaCare to the pages of the New York Times today, attempting to school its readers on the actual issues of pricing opacity and tax-policy warping of the markets.  More importantly, Ryan pledges action, not obstruction:
Morrissey Quotes Ryan then goes on to advance his own additions. Good ones too, I might add.
While I think Ryan’s reforms would work to undo the damage of ObamaCare and the tax policies of the last several decades, they could go a bit farther.  The best outcome would be to get rid of the idea of comprehensive insurance altogether and move towards catastrophic insurance instead...

Is Ryan pushing a bid for 2012?

Democrats’ Health Overhaul Dangerously Expands IRS Authority

There I was, happily working along when the phone rings. Its a friend asking for my email addy. She then sends me some blog fodder that I must stop what I'm doing and share with you...
 
From the Committee on Ways and Means Republican Report
Prepared for Ranking Member Dave Camp (R-MI) and Charles Boustany (RLA),
Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Oversight
March 18, 2010

***Highlights of New IRS Authority***

  • IRS agents verify if you have “acceptable” health care coverage
  • IRS has the authority to fine you up to $2,250 or 2 percent of your income (whichever is greater) for failure to prove that you have purchased “minimum essential coverage”
  • IRS can confiscate your tax refund
  • IRS audits are likely to increase
  • IRS will need up to $10 billion to administer the new health care program this decade
  • IRS may need to hire as many as 16,500 additional auditors, agents and other employees to investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans
  • Nearly half of all these new individual mandate taxes will be paid by Americans earning less than 300 percent of poverty ($66,150 for a family of four)

***SPECIAL EXEMPTION***

  • Democrats prohibit the IRS from imposing these taxes and penalties on illegal immigrants

All of it stinks to high heaven. I only highlighted the worst part of it, to me. 
 
Hay, Here's an idea, I think I'll just renounce my citizenship and live off of all of you suckas for the rest of my days. How does that sound? Freaking maroons.

Total Recall
Now that I've been taken away from my project for a bit, I may as well share something else with you. 

There was a glimmer of hope I saw earlier, illustr8r, the new blogger at iOwnTheWorld is quoting Mark Levin as having opined (I'm paraphrasing) "Let's Recall Congress". What a grand idea! I like it better than the renouncing my citizenship thing, but something's gotta give. illustr8r has a cool movie poster graphic too. Check it out.

During Health Care Debate Senate Dems Feast on Lobster, Constitution - Bill Headed Back to House

The Hill reports that the reconciliation bill will pass a couple of amendments to he House Health Care bill, sending it back to the lower House for another vote. Some crossing of the aisle has occured from both sides.

Senate Parliamentarian Alan Frumin sustained two GOP objections to two minor sections of a Pell Grant provision in the student loan part of the bill intended to change the original healthcare reform bill passed by both chambers.


The Senate held 10 hours of continuous, marathon voting starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday, with Republicans trying throughout to lodge a successful objection to the bill to force its return to the lower chamber. The bill’s passage by the House is a safe bet, prompting Senate GOP Whip Jon Kyl (Ariz.) to call Frumin’s ruling “a consolation prize.”

In 10 hours of voting, only three Republicans crossed the aisle to vote with Democrats — Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, and George Voinovich of Ohio, who supported Democrats in blocking an amendment by Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) that would have allowed Medicare patients to opt out of receiving certain benefits.

Senators began voting at 5 p.m. and rarely left the chamber over the next several hours, venturing only into the cloakrooms and only occasionally into the hallways where several members had hideaway offices nearby.

In contrast to floor speeches delivered during the afternoon and on Tuesday, Wednesday night’s voting was often marked by levity and was rarely tense. At one point, after Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) gave a tongue-in-cheek speech in favor of one GOP amendment, Democratic Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) responded by teasing Roberts over the University of Kansas’s recent loss in the NCAA basketball tournament.

The evening’s mood suggested a foregone conclusion; Republicans privately conceded that the bill was on its way to passage and said they weren’t surprised at the overwhelming defeat of their amendments. Democrats, meanwhile, celebrated by munching on lobster rolls from Legal Seafood in their cloakroom in honor of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), who had championed healthcare reform for much of his 47-year career.
 The Robot is not sure what implications this will have. I will leave that to more learned scholars. I'm merely passing on the information. Read the whole report here.

and links to others as I find them.


This list will be updated at The Resistance as well, as time allows...
 
Michele Bachmann's Repeal the Bill petition
 
Rep. Bachmann's appers to be the same one that I signed a couple of days ago found here. I'll share it as well just in case.
 
Repeal ObamaCare Facebook Petition


The TEA Party Patriots also have a petition which you probably saw a banner for prominently displayed on this site.
 
Also, as mentioned earlier on this site, the Senate Conservatives Fund is having a Repeal It Pledge campaign.
 
I know there is another Facebook petition but FB is down at the moment so, here is the incomplete list for now.

UPDATE: FB is now up and I can add:

REPEAL THE BILL! their goal is 1,000,000,000 to join the FB page. I bet we can beat that by a few million...

Also Scrap the Bill. They have a FB page and a website The Freedom Project.

More to come.
If you have one I don't know about, share it with me in the comments of this post and I'll check it out . If it is legit to the best I can verify, I'll link it.

Cheers!

Dingell's "Control the People" Freudian Slip

In case you haven't heard it....



Let me remind you this has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

Pelosivators

>> March 23, 2010

The Troglopundit had a piece titled "Five Things to Keep in Mind About ObamaCare" published on FoxPolitics today. If you didn't get a chance to see it, you should check it out. The link is here.

He's also at it with the Automotivator thing again. I hate it when he does that. You know I can't pass up some good Motivator action. The 'Bot does love to be motivated. Trog even went so far as to adopt a stray idea from the Robot on the title of said outing. Hence, Pelosivators. Great minds think alike.

This time the subject of scorn er ridicule um good natured fun is none other than our despised beloved Nancy Pelosi and four or five of her lap dogs salivating over the ruination of our Constitution. Um, did I just elude to Pelosi being a bitch? Well, it certainly wasn't done consciously. But now that I see it in pixels, I does kinda fit, in a Pavlovian sense of things,  don't you think? But I dally too long on the trivial.

On with the show.
Without further adieu, The Robotic entries in the Pelosivator, stream of consciousness, whatever you wanna call it, contest without a prize or something...

Trog, take your pick, although I still think you nailed it with the "Flying House" one.
More to come as computations from the Robot continue over a few beers.

CNSNews.com House Judiciary Chairman Says Constitution's Non-Existent ‘Good and Welfare Clause’ Authorizes Congress to Force Americans to Buy Health Insurance

So we got that going for us...
(CNSNews.com) -- House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) said the "good and welfare clause" gives Congress the authority to require individuals to buy health insurance as mandated in the health care bill. However, there is no "good and welfare clause" in the U.S. Constitution.

What Comes Next?

It's the question asked and answered by General Robert "Bob" Belvedere with an alchemy of posts from the blogosphere that should serve as a reference point to all of us, from March 21 until Obamacare is defeated. Cited as being "An amalgamated manifesto" by the Reaganite Republican. I wholeheartedly agree.

General Belvedere was gracious enough to include a tin headed robot in his exhortation. I am grateful to be put in such fine, patriotic company.

It was suggested that you should copy it and email to your friends. That is a great idea.

Legislative Innovations?

I had a post all cued up to go...
And then I had to revise it. See, I almost made the mistake of assuming I knew what political side someone was on from a few things they wrote. Yea, I know. Silly huh?
 
The person in question isn't someone I read every day. I'm sure that if I did, I would understand her positions a little better. Unfortunately, The Atlantic isn't one of my main coffee table sites. Maybe it should be.
 
The reason I'm even blathering on about this is Little Miss Attila. It's all her fault. She's the reason I was shoved into the world of hyper-realism and ultra-awareness. I'm sure that if only a redneck like myself could, but for a little while, take off my boots and blue jeans and wade through the streets of New York or Philadelphia or San Francisco, I'd gather by sheer osmosis, the wisdom of some more learned authors. (Sorry about that visual)
 

I'm going to be in hot water for this, but I have to question Megan McArdle's use of some terminology in one of the articles I read today. Forgive me if I've gone off the deep end here. Please, let me know if I'm being overly critical.

Being a lowly robot in the food-chain of the blogosphere, I usually refrain from critique of someone in the journalism field. After all, they are paid for their verbiage.
 
Today, however is not one of those days. Call me wreckless. (HT Michelle Malkin and the Dem's for the new spelling.)

Ms. McArdle posted an interesting piece at The Atlantic on the tyranny of the majority and cautioning against too much gloating over the health care victory. She even went so far as to recognize the inherent danger in ignoring the will of the American people. Something I agree with by the way. What she cautioned against was expressed in this phrasing:
If the GOP takes the legislative innovations of the Democrats and decides to use them, please don't complain that it's not fair.  Someone could get seriously hurt, laughing that hard.

But I hope they don't.  What I hope is that the Democrats take a beating at the ballot box and rethink their contempt for those mouth-breathing illiterates in the electorate... 
Legislative innovations? I guess if you would define unconstitutional procedures, bribery, deceit, arm twisting and I'll venture a guess at blackmail as legislative innovations then you might want to take out some stock in the next printing of Webster's because everyone in the country is going to need a copy to decipher the new language.

I have to ask, am I reading this correctly? Do I understand Ms. McArdle to mean that she would actually justify or could justify the use of such tactics? Because that is the way it seems. Granted, she has left herself an "out" here by the little "I hope they don't" line. But the suggestion has been made.
 
Look, I know we are in the middle of a fight right now and tempers will flare, but to condone such procedures for one's own side is to give them the thumbs up for all sides. To threaten to use them in the future because they have been used in the past is patently wrong; not to mention that it would just embolden the opposition and add credence to their very use in the first place.

If we threaten to use these measures in the future, what possible criticism can we use against the process and resulting legislation that came from it? I'm sorry, I don't see the logic.

If these new legislative innovations, as McArdle calls them, are given the seal of approval, then we are just as bad as what we are fighting. We should take the high road on this issue, even if it means losing, because to do otherwise is to become what we despise.

I'm sorry for going off here, Ms. McArdle but I believe you are wrong to encourage or even mention this tack as legitimate. If I have read you incorrectly, please, enlighten me.

It is my not so humble opinion that this war can still be won. That the legislation itself is unconstitutional is the ground of the battlefield.

As I write this I'm listening to the AG of Texas on the radio give the basis of a lawsuit about to be filed opposing Obamacare. The main points being that the Federal Government is not allowed and is in fact prohibited by the Constitution from requiring a citizen to purchase a product or service. Let's fight the fight with the Constitution in hand and not get distracted by the "well you did it" mantra.

If we wish our leaders to be righteous and fair then we must require it from them, not encourage bad behavior on our own side as tit for tat. It would only play into the oppositions hands.

As to the gloating, to Obama, Ried and Pelosi I say gloat. Go ahead. Get it out of your system. All you will accomplish is enraging an already angry TEA Party and waking up a sleeping elephant.

In reality, the first part of M.M's article that stuck me in the eye was this quote:
One cannot help but admire Nancy Pelosi's skill as a legislator.  But it's also pretty worrying.  Are we now in a world where there is absolutely no recourse to the tyranny of the majority?  Republicans and other opponents of the bill did their job on this; they persuaded the country that they didn't want this bill.  And that mattered basically not at all.  If you don't find that terrifying, let me suggest that you are a Democrat who has not yet contemplated what Republicans might do under similar circumstances.  Farewell, Social Security!  Au revoir, Medicare!  The reason entitlements are hard to repeal is that the Republicans care about getting re-elected.
My comment at LMA's place was:
"Farewell, social security! Au revoir, Medicare! The reason entitlements are hard to repeal is that the Republicans care about getting re-elected."
I think it might actually be a badge of honor and help get them re-elected.
Anyone brave enough to stand against entitlement mentality gets my vote. I would also bet that a large number of newly awakened Americans agree with me. Optimism. Yea, it’s my curse.
Side note: Saw Instapundit mention you today, AGAIN. Hows that Instalache workin out for ya? Traffic envy is petty, but it’s mine.

On reflection, I have to also question any "admiration" for "Nancy Pelosi's skill as a legislator". I could do a freaking hell of a lot with a stimulus package full of voters' money to bribe a bunch of crooked legislators with. The fact that it took so long and so much money is a testament to the TEA Party and the common every day citizens who manned the phones day after day and trekked to DC trying to stop this garbage. The fact is, they scared the hell out of those lawmaker/breakers and caused a more lengthy process.

Are you beginning to understand why I was having trouble figuring out which side M.M. is on?  I sincerely hope I'm missing the sarcasm. Surely, I am. Again, I apologize if I'm being overly critical, but to admire Pelosi is, to me, to admire a mobster for his murder and thievery techniques or Satan himself for his prowess at deceit.

I might be an optimist, but as of Sunday night, I'm an optimist with a grudge.

Now Some Progressive on Progressive Action

The man who sold Massachusetts Government health care now disses it. For once, I agree with Mitt Romney.
  
From NRO:
"A Campaign Begins Today [Mitt Romney]
America has just witnessed an unconscionable abuse of power. President Obama has betrayed his oath to the nation — rather than bringing us together, ushering in a new kind of politics, and rising above raw partisanship, he has succumbed to the lowest denominator of incumbent power: justifying the means by extolling the ends. He promised better; we deserved better.
 He calls his accomplishment “historic” — in this he is correct, although not for the reason he intends. Rather, it is an historic usurpation of the legislative process — he unleashed the nuclear option, enlisted not a single Republican vote in either chamber, bribed reluctant members of his own party, paid-off his union backers, scapegoated insurers, and justified his act with patently fraudulent accounting. What Barack Obama has ushered into the American political landscape is not good for our country; in the words of an ancient maxim, “what starts twisted, ends twisted.”
 His health-care bill is unhealthy for America. It raises taxes, slashes the more private side of Medicare, installs price controls, and puts a new federal bureaucracy in charge of health care. It will create a new entitlement even as the ones we already have are bankrupt. For these reasons and more, the act should be repealed. That campaign begins today."

Mini Robo-Love Health Care Edition Link Fest

>> March 21, 2010

Friend of the Robot "Eye of Polyphemus" (which I can now spell without referring back to his blog) has an excellent list of blogs that mention the Health Care issue.

He says: "We cannot avoid the healthcare issue. It is all anyone is blogging about:"
 
That about sums it up Jeff Jamie. - Sorry dude. I must have been drunk and on crack when I typed that. I will now go and volunteer for a flogging. Hey! Look over there, a Wookie!

 
Also blogging the takeover of America is The Other McCain, who has a neat little geeky chat thingy going on, Potluck, The Resistance, with whom I am proudly associated, Michelle Malkin, and Hot Air will be updating as the day wears on.

The Classic Liberal has a guest post from Irish Cicero of Washington Rebel fame that should get your synapses firing on all cylinders.

Pundit and Pundette always have the spot on commentary and analysis.
 

If you need a bosom break, you should head over to TCOTS where Mr. Robert "Bob" Belvedere has some ample information in the form of a raven headed hottie. This link in no way is an attempt to garner favor in the No Sheeples Here Rule 5 Sweater Puppy Contest. No sir, Not. One. Bit.

Lastly, I can't leave without saying thanks to Steve of Motor City Times and Gator Doug for their kind words in regard to my post at midnight last night. All I can say is, if elected, I will not serve.

That midnight post also got picked up by Doug Ross today in the Larwyn's Links issue, for which I am most appreciative sir.


That is all I have time for right now.

Be steadfast in your resolve. We are after all, Americans and this is not over by a long shot.

As for me, I've been trying to work on a logo all morning and can't take my eyes of this f^#$ing train wreck they call Health Care Reform!

And no-one even mentions the fact they shoved an education takeover into the damn thing too.
 

Keep calling and praying.
