The tyranny of the education system

Teachers are people and start, just like anyone else, as kids. They remember their lives as kids and say to themselves, “when we grow up it will be different” and then when grown they implement those changes . . . .

That kids are just miniature adults and if you treat them as adults they will act like adults

That kids don’t need punished

Kids are special, each and every one rather then showing how they are special

America has now spent 40 years of letting the teachers prove they are right and have only proven how wrong they are. It is time to take back control from the inmates who say, “it’s for the children” and hold them hostage to get more money rather insist on money for the children to have smaller classes, more teachers and schools closer to where the kids live.

At a minimum, the school superintendent cannot be a former teacher and perpetuate the boy network and has to be broken up. They has to be genuine oversight rather then rubber stamp school boards that get hoodwinked by school administrators taking care of debts to teachers. There should be an investigative arm of the school board that looks into the validity of proposals for the best value and best effect.

Teachers resemble their kids to a great deal and want all the latest toys and if one teacher gets something then they all want it. Quit spoiling teachers and turning them into brats, it’s time they grew up, became adults and really did it for the kids. Teachers are not there to be liked; they are there to turn kids into adults

There are good teachers who are dedicated to their profession and then there are careerists there for the check first. And regardless of the reason for being there it’s time that teachers didn’t have to work ungodly ours and get a schedule that gives them time with their family.

It’s time to really fix the education system, not with ideology, but common, unbiased sense. It’s time to look up instead of down; time to look beyond just the next day. More teachers, smaller classes, more schools, outside control and get back to basis and rebuild from the ground up.

I have seen the textbook for English class used in the 40’s that English teachers couldn’t pass nowadays and what passed for an 8th grade education then would easily be a 2 year degree today. But each generation would say, “that was too hard, it needs to be easier so kids can understand” and each successive generation has dumbed down the school textbooks to their level of understanding – and dumbed down America

It has become that schools are educating kids to work for America Inc and make it’s rulers powerful. What ever happened to educating kids and letting them find their place?


The 5th Amendment

Something about the 5th amendment I have never understood . . . . you cannot be compelled to testify against yourself, but police can get a warrant to search your home and get DNA samples among other personal items in essence taken by force and against your will

How is that not being compelled to testify against yourself?

Physical evidence. The 5th was originally focused on elimination of the old English methods of torturing suspects until they confessed. The constitution is suppose to be a “living” document and adapt to the times, but, in this case, it doesn’t seem to have

Considering the “psychological” tortures like charges of obstruction of justice with fines and jail time or even loss of license for failing to take a breathalyzer test, I’d say torture has evolved. It is much more subtle rather then brute force now

The Healthcare Cost Crisis

The complaints about the rising cost of medical care start with doctors and end with doctors. Doctors were overcharging the govt for reimbursement and the govt responded by cutting reimbursement. Then doctors started overcharging insurance companies who passed that on to their customers as higher rates. The insurance companies don’t challenge doctors about what is being billed, it’d add to the overhead and it’s cheaper and easier to raise rates.

If you’ve ever been without insurance you get a good look at all the BS that gets tacked on by doctors. And hospitals aren’t very far behind in tacking extras on.

It’s all about accountability, “trust but verify”

Terrorism and Gun Violence

The gun went on sale this week and was quickly denounced by the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Florida, according to MyFoxOrlando.

“Sadly, this manufacturer’s fancy new gun won’t do anything to stop the real threat in America: the escalating problem of gun violence,” the council told the station. “This is just another shameful marketing ploy intended to profit from the promotion of hatred, division, and violence.”

Something CAIR forgot, muslims are part of the gun violence . . . and a growing part. The CAIR comment is a shameful attempt to divert responsibility of muslims to be as they say they are, a peace loving religion

The threat to America are extremists secular and non-secular . . . . NYC 9/11/01, OKC 4/19/1995, Campus Bombings Late 60’s/early 70’s

Terrorism in the United States

Never forget ANYTHING. There must be justice, but not revenge. That is the old world way
