Liberals give children a bad name

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

There are lots of children in Wisconsin schools, but they’re not sitting in desks. They are called “teachers” when they’re doing their job and not abusing sick leave to throw a temper tantrum at the capitol (I say “teachers” in quotes because I refuse to dishonor real teachers.) These union thugs have proven, as if […]

Corruption + Incompetence = More Taxpayer Money!

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

This story is absolutely pathetic. If Obama’s stimulus bill proves one thing, it is that there is no limit to the degree which a government operation can fail and not get bailed out. In this case, $355 million stimulus dollars are going to the Detroit Public Schools with no strings attached. Besides being mired in […]

Government Schools just need more money.

Compulsory “Community Service” is Liberal Facism

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

One of the biggest problems with liberals is that they are enemies of freedom, but in their profound ignorance, they mistakenly think that they are defenders of freedom. One great example of liberal enslavement is Obama’s promise to expand “mandatory community service.” Besides being a form of slavery, “mandatory volunteerism” is an oxymoron — a […]

Government School Gulags

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

We love a good laugh, and our wonderful, government schools are a joke that just keeps on giving. Not content to propagandize mind-numbed “students” and never missing an opportunity to explore the limits of zero-tolerance, zero-thought policies, government schools are now applying their humorless, jack-booted oppression on poor saps who make the mistake of going […]

Teaching Math Since the 1950’s

Monday, June 9th, 2008

(Hat tip: David) 1. Teaching Math In 1950’s A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit? 2. Teaching Math In 1960’s A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. […]

“Government School Quality” Health Care

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

To imagine how horrific the US medical system would be under a Hillary or Obama socialized medicine scheme (we know they don’t like to call it that, but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…), consider this story from our lucky neighbors up in Canada, where a woman in the Toronto […]

Government Schools: Operation Zombie

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

Here’s the latest on Operation Zombie (OZ) — the government school program to transform captive children into helpless, mindless, drooling, dependent wards of the Democrat Utopia of America. The Mission Ensuring Equal Kids (MEEK) is responsible for prohibiting any activity if it can be shown that one kid is having more fun than another. The […]

Banning Homeschooling: The Real Agenda

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

With news this week that “only 1 of 2 students graduate high school in US cities,” we’re now contending with States that are doing their damnedest to keep parents from homeschooling their children. No matter how badly government schools fail, the government wants to force parents to imprison their children in these abysmal “schools.” If […]

Contraband Candy in Government Schools

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

Putting your children in government schools is an act of child abuse. Shame on you. This is the kind of mindless crap that occurs daily in the government indoctrination and propaganda centers euphemistically known as “public schools.” Connecticut School Rethinks Suspension for Eighth Grader Caught With Contraband Candy: NEW HAVEN, Conn. — An eighth-grade honors […]

More Government School Idiocy

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

The “Loser Cruiser” is back! It’s the first week of September, so all of the government “schools” are back in business burning through billions of property tax dollars to indoctrinate your precious children in Government 101 — Ineptitude Knows No Limits. Don’t fret, however, because we know that your government school — like your Congressman […]

Today’s Lesson: Government is Force

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

Cory Mashburn and Ryan Cornelison are victims of “government power gone wild.” The juxtaposition of the kids with the police officer watching from behind is a powerful symbol of the unlimited and arbitrary power of the government to destroy lives. It’s also a poignant reminder to never put your kids in government schools. A few […]

Criminalizing Schoolroom Horseplay

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Here’s a recipe for disaster: Mix a hefty dose of “zero-tolerance” (i.e., zero thought) government school administrators with an overzealous district attorney. The resulting concoction destroys children and is an aphrodisiac to power-hungry government officials. Read Mark Steyn’s column, “Swat somebody’s butt, and yours belongs to the D.A.,” on the latest example of prosecutors who’ve […]

Reading, Writing, Wahhabism

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

Here’s Michelle Malkin on the revelation that Saudi-created teaching materials have taken over the Middle East studies program in America’s stellar, government schools. The curriculum in our government schools is lousy and polluted enough without the stealth infiltration of Saudi propaganda. Time for some oversight and loophole-closing. Anyone in Congress awake? Michelle is referring to […]

‘Climate Change?’ No, Dog Crap

Monday, July 9th, 2007

While Americans kids in government schools are being bombarded with propaganda on “climate change” (aka, global warming), the British have other things, like dog poop and graffiti, to worry about. From the BBC News, ‘Scepticism’ over climate claims: The public believes the effects of global warming on the climate are not as bad as politicians […]

Quitting Public School

Saturday, March 17th, 2007

Yesterday we picked on government schools in a story on terrorists and school buses. What better time then to note “Quitting Public School” by Michael McBride. Which is why I strongly believe the great equalizer was our public primary education. My mother retired as an elementary school principal from the same district. So I was […]

Bussing for Terrorists

Friday, March 16th, 2007

Terrorists may be attempting to become public school bus drivers. Now why would they want to do that? Of course, if your kid gets on one of these every weekday then shame on you! Bad parent! Bad! This is an example of how terrorists may be using our system against us, which is the subject […]

You can’t Censor Away Incompetence

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

(Hat tip: Our friend, George P. Burdell) Here’s a story that is fooling exactly…no one. The St. Petersburg Times is reporting that the principal of Hillsborough High School censored an article in the student paper in order to protect his poor, delicate students’ self-esteem. There’s only one problem: the principal is full of bullshit and […]

Harry Potter at risk in Georgia Schools

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

Today’s Atlanta Journal Constitution has this story, Hearing to vanish Potter set for today, on a hearing today in the Gwinnet County government school system to debate censoring the Harry Potter novels from the school system’s libraries. From the article: A Gwinnett County school board hearing on whether to remove the Harry Potter series from […]

Socialism Rots Your Brain

Friday, March 31st, 2006

If you don’t read James Toranto’s “Best of the Web” each day then you’re missing out on some great stories. Today we have a story on how Socialism rots your brain. First, some background: Great Moments in Public Education–I An article in New York Teacher, the magazine of the state teachers union, pays tribute to […]
