Public education under Jugears?

Remember that bit about history repeating?

Substitute "liberal" for "Nazi" and "Osama" for "Hitler" in this cartoon and see what you get...

Email to the governor

There are votes pending on several issues in the state legislature.

Common Core - "liberal" (one-world socialist) UN educational standards funding.

A comprehensive database on our schoolkids, including information that has no bearing on schooling whatsoever.

Collection of DNA for a database from suspects, not convicted criminals.

It's been too long since I raised my voice. So:

Governor Walker,

There are several things I want you to use your line item veto on.

First is funding for Common Core education standards. Public education is a function that ought to be under local control, with little state oversight and funding at all, and no federal interference whatsoever. Get the federal government and the UN out of our schools in Wisconsin! No money for Common Core.

There already are too many "databases" out there. "Skyward" is a long step too far. Veto it.

Next - DNA collection from persons arrested for felonies. Absolutely not. In this country, a person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, no matter how bad the circumstances look at the time of arrest. Also, why is the collection being handled by a foreign firm? I am sure there is at least one DNA capable laboratory in the State of Wisconsin, and if not, at least within the United States. DNA must only be collected if it is required for trial evidence before conviction, and the samples destroyed if the suspect is found not guilty. Once a person is convicted, DNA collection makes legal sense.

Remember that government is there to ensure the freedom of the people, not job security for bureaucrats, or making life "easier" for the police and people who snoop into the private lives of the people.

Leo II

New kitten:

This little guy walked into the garage Thursday night while I was working with my son on his Mustang Cobra.

He's all skin and bones and very affectionate. He's got a vet appointment next week for a checkup and neutering, if he needs it. I suppose it would be too much to expect that every tomcat that show up here has already been fixed, like Lucky was.


He's almost a ringer for my Leo cat, lost earlier this year. Hence the name.

This has gone way too far

14-year-old at the center of "NRA T-Shirt Controversy" now facing possibility of 1 year in jail

 Suspended and arrested after refusing to change his NRA shirt. Today, 14-year-old Jared Marcum appeared before a judge and was officially charged with obstructing an officer.

A $500 fine and up to a year in jail, that's the penalty that Jared could face, now that a judge has allowed the prosecution to move forward with it's obstructing an officer charge against him.

"Me, I'm more of a fighter and so is Jared and eventually we're going to get through this," Jared's father Allen Lardieri said.  "I don't think it should have ever gotten this far."

The Logan County Police Department initially claimed that the at-the-time 8th grade Logan Middle School student was arrested for disturbing the education process, obstructing an officer and Lardieri says that officers even went as far as threatening to charge Jared with making terroristic threats.

"In my view of the facts, Jared didn't do anything wrong," Ben White, Jared's attorney said.  "I think officer Adkins could have done something differently."

Prosecuting attorney Michael White refused to respond to any questions, as did Logan Police.

We obtained official court documents from both sides of this case.  On one hand, the arresting officer from the Logan City Police Department, James Adkins, claims that when Jared refused to stop talking, that hindered his ability to do his job, hence, the obstruction charge.  On the other side, Ben White points out that nowhere in the arresting officer's petition, does it mention Jared ever making any threats or acting in a violent manner. 

"Every aspect of this is just totally wrong," Lardieri said.  "He has no background of anything criminal, up until now and it just seems like nobody wants to admit they're wrong."

Ben White says he will continue working to have the charges against Jared dismissed.  If that doesn't happen in the coming weeks, Jared will be back in court on July 11th.

Do the cops bring obstruction charges against every mouthy drunk they nab? That cop ought to be fired for letting a 14-year-old get under his skin so that he couldn't do his job.

Damn straight "it never should have gotten this far". The only reason I can see for this escalation is that some petty bureaucrats got embarrassed and now have to prove to themselves that they and their inane rules are important and deserving of respect.

The people in the area need to wake up and visit the school board - with torches and pitchforks.

Another visit to the local police chief and the politicians that appointed him is also indicated, as is a visit to that judge.

I would have never expected to hear this kind of boneheaded stupidity from West Virginia. NYC, San Francisco, LA, Chicago, yes. But in those places, it wouldn't be news.

Great idea!

Remember hearing about hog processors using "everything but the squeal" -here's a pork product you might want to stockpile:

Jihawg Ammo

Reminds me of the Israeli idea a few years back of putting a bag of pig lard in public transit vehicles. In case of a suicide bomber, the container would douse Achmed with forbidden pork, preventing him from finding those 72 virgins...

Does this post make me eligible for special attention from Jugears' secret police?

Visiting China

Just heard on the radio that the Janesville school board has sent, or is sending, a bunch of officials and teachers to China for a visit. This might be a repeat trip.


What is there in China that Janesville needs to know about education? Advanced socialist propaganda for children?

Your tax dollars at work.

Facebook "burns" the US flag

Censorship is tantamount to destruction.

Madison Rising had a new arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner posted on Facebook - it was very popular. Lots of likes.

Then, popularity plummeted - because Facebook classed the video as "spam". They since have reversed that decision.

View of the near future

Stolen from Old NFO. Thanks!

By the way - Islam is not a religion - it's a political system with religious trappings, and it is responsible for a whole lot of suffering and evil in the last 1400-odd years.

And our President IS a Commie. Actions speak louder than words.

And, the Demonrats are destroying our freedoms.

PC? Hell no! I'll ask permission of any bureaucrat to post or say anything two days after they bury me.

If then.

It boggles the mind

Can you beleive this?

IRS chief to taxpayers: Just trust me

The new chief of the Internal Revenue Service, the feared federal agency now mired in scandal for its admitted targeting of conservatives and its lavish conferences, says he wants Americans to trust him.
But one member of Congress says he has a plan that would permanently resolve the conflict between an administrative agency that has confessed to abusing Americans and Americans who are tired of being abused: abolish the IRS.

Danny Werfel, the new IRS chief appointed by President Obama in an attempt to tamp down the growing congressional scrutiny and outrage, appeared before Congress today and acknowledged that people who used to trust his agency now don’t.
“My primary mission is to restore that trust,” he said.
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, had an altogether different resolution.
“I think we ought to abolish the IRS and instead move to a simple flat tax where the average American can fill out taxes on [a] postcard,” he told Fox News in a weekend interview.
“Put down how much you earn, put down a deduction for charitable contributions, home mortgage and how much you owe. It ought to be a simple one-page postcard, and take the agents, the bureaucracy out of Washington and limit the power of government.”
I like Ted Cruz...

The Right's 20 rules of racism

Found here.

A few teasers:

8. It’s not racist to note that white liberalism managed to do in about thirty years something that three hundred years of slavery could not, seriously damage the black family, generally though not universally, and ruin it completely over wide swaths.
9. Speaking of slavery, the bulk of slave raiding and trading in Africa was black, usually Islamic black (see Rule 16, below) on black. The Arabic word for black and slave is the same, “Abd.” And the first registered slave owner in Virginia was black. Pointing this out to liberals, white and black, is always fun.
10. It’s not racist to wish that our first black president had been Thomas Sowell.
11. The “Some of my best friends” defense against a charge of racism is no defense…unless it happens to be true. Sometimes it’s best expressed to a white liberal as, “You don’t have so much as a freaking day in uniform, do you, dipshit?”
12. The system of education that white liberals have inflicted on inner city blacks is a crime against humanity. No amount of money that they toss at it helps to overcome the elimination of discipline liberalism has caused. It’s neither racist to note this…nor wrong.
13. The various college and university minority “studies” programs, because they give a useless pseudo-education, and at very high cost in both money and time, are racist in their effects.
Fun. And true.
Very good read over at The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler

At The Cross Roads

I caught a good read over at the American Thinker entitled: Exploiting Nathan Dunlap. The author’s line of reasoning is very sound and evoked a similar thought process in my own bean.
We see almost daily, more willingness of the Ogabe Administration to place matters rightfully the jurisdiction the legislative branch into the hands of bureaucrats, sycophants and of course, his personal stooges such as Holder, Napolitano, Carney-Barker, et al. Our standard low-information voter will not be made to understand the true danger here. That we can replace an administration and will in the ballot box, we can’t change to the institutional legacy mindset of Congress that is the real danger here. Congress is massively delinquent in the their responsibilities as the elected branch of government. They increasingly chose allowing Obama to make extra-constitutional decisions because it’s politically safe for them. They know that we’re making steady progress in engaging our fellow citizens as the usurpation of powers in the all-out headlong rush to subvert capitalism into socialism continues. The proggies know full well that they are well past the point-of-no-return in their efforts to radicalize the Republic and they are rapidly approaching the time where they will be fully exposed to the awakening public and the game will be over. Likely status quo, but doubtfully status quo ante, will prevail with a generation of work to do (if we have the will) to return the Republic to some resemblance of it’s intended structure.
Apathy I believe, lies at the root of what I’m trying to process here. Are we truly at the point where it’s ‘just as easy’ to allow someone else to make the tough decisions for us? I’ve expressed frustrations on these pages in the past with the “politicians are all the same, so it doesn’t matter” folks that refuse to vote because they ‘feel’ their input into the process has no real meaning. Unfortunately here, they are becoming increasingly correct and we’re becoming more wrong.
If the only means of governance truly in our hands, our elected branches, are allowed to keep their jobs while socialistic tyranny’s ball-carriers run over, around and through them, then this great experiment has failed. It’s the last of the constitutionally provided checks of an over reaching government under control of the people. The courts have utterly failed us, and as long as the legacy media is dominated by ideologues, the executive branch has no real employer to answer before, other than opinion polls in their reelection plans and even they don’t seem to matter to this administration. Obama has nothing to lose and his cause, Marxism and Statism has everything to gain.
Go read the whole thing - well worth your time.

Criticize Islam, Face Civil Rights Charges

Posted by Filed under 1st Amendment, Christianity, Constitution, Crime, Email Featured, Islam, Law Enforcement, Liberal Bullying, Political Correctness, Religion
And the next brick in the road to tyranny: A U.S. attorney in Tennessee says that posting comments critical of Islam on Facebook and other  social media could violate civil rights laws.
Translation: The Feds are monitoring your Internet postings and will soon be targeting anyone who is anti-Islam, most of whom I’m guessing would be Christians and Jews.
Hmm. Do you suppose that might even be conservative Christians and Jews?
The pattern continues.
It’s a good thing that I and most of the folks who post here only post facts about the only world religion to be founded by a warlord, and which is in competition against the religion of atheism for the most people killed in its name.
So, if I tell people that Islam is a political system masquerading as a religion, and is as evil as religions can be, some US attorney is going to come for me?

Let him try. I'll read him the pertinent amendment to the US Constitution.

Here's his contact info. Perhaps we can send him some suggestions on remedial education.

Jugears poised to sign UN gun treaty

So, the news is buzzing about our traitor-in-chief Jugears Osama allegedly ready to sign America's Constitution away tomorrow.

Last time I looked, the President takes a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.Unless Jugears had his fingers crossed, he's bound by this oath. If he had his fingers crossed, it just proves he never matured emotionally beyond childhood. He's still required to follow the rules.

The Senate voted recently by a comfortable majority, including a few Demonrats, to oppose such a treaty. We shall see if they do as they have said they will.

If the Senate does ratify this abomination - and the "Law of the Sea" (LOST) is up again for a vote I hear, also - I see nothing good at all in our immediate future.

There will be blood and fire, I fear.
