public education

American public education disses the male gender

Ever wonder why on Network TV, the adult male is often portrayed as a bumbling idiot? Ever wonder why there are a vast disproportionate number of males in American prisons (compared to the female gender)? Ever wonder, why the cultural craze to medicate young boys so that they are not “disruptive” in school? Ever wonder why the proliferation of the “gay agenda” and the consequential attack upon traditional and Judeo / Christian (American) values?

Please note the short youtube video and accompanying (following) informational links. Perhaps, you may draw a partial conclusion as this author has. Perhaps, you may also blame America’s drum-beat of political correctness and practice of multicultural “values,” which aids in the (obvious) discrimination against the male gender in the area of public education:

What Goes Around Comes Around – by Mary Thompson – newswithviews.com

Excerpt:

……..Look at the history trail of efforts to rid the United States of religious private schools, and agenda which waxed and waned for the past century, but never died.

“Forgotten” history exists of organized efforts in more than one state to require ALL children to attend public schools.  One such effort spanned some years when an organization was formed in Michigan with headquarters in Detroit about 1916.  The Wayne County Civic Association’s purpose was to advocate for all children between ages of 5 – 16 to attend public school. It failed to gather enough signatures for submission of an amendment to the voters of Michigan, but kept up its efforts afterward.  It was primarily aimed at Catholic Parochial Schools, but Lutherans also had many parochial schools.  This writer possesses a copy of an original document of the Michigan District of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Missouri, Ohio and other states going on record July 1919 as “unalterably opposed to the aims of this association without a dissenting vote”.  The resolution urgedto ”keep in mind that the enemies of our parochial schools are also enemies of our country”……… – newswithviews.com

Child abuse in Michigan Caro Community Schools: Principal’s political correctness abuse directed against a 9 year old boy

Not all child abuse is physical. The public educational school industry is a unique environment to visit upon young and innocent minds, emotional and mental abuse. The culture's application of "political correctness" is a manical form of child abuse

Not all child abuse is physical. The public educational school “industry” is a unique environment to visit upon young and innocent minds, emotional, mental and intellectual abuse. The culture’s application of “political correctness” is an insidious form of child abuse. It stomps on children’s free speech expression and indoctrinates them to behold their big Mama government book of political correctness rules.

Update Note – March 16, 2013 – 1:00 PM EST – This author just received word from a credible source that Hunter, the 9 year old boy,  was not suspended from school, or punished for bringing his politically incorrect cupcakes to school. When you read the following commentary, please keep that in mind as this author based some of his commentary expressed thoughts on that reported assumption. I say “reported” because that’s what the FOX news piece led me to believe [assume].

However, the question needs to be asked: “If Hunter wasn’t suspended and punished by the school; why in the first place was his toy miniature figurine soldier decorative cupcakes made to be the political correctness demons they were apparently made to be?”

Furthermore, if there was a school crime that was committed, then the question to be asked could be: “Who perpetrated the crime – or, the misdeed?” If the 9 year old boy was not sanctioned in some way, then, who was? Could we conclude that the little green men were the heinous assailant perpetrators of “some crime” against the school’s political correctness myopic policy? If those little green men [toy WWII figurines] are the criminals, then it behooves the school to somehow sanction them. Oh! This author now remembers that the school’s sanction may have been, that these little green men were forced against their own will, and removed off the cupcake mounds. This brings to mind another question: “Were the rights of these little green men violated. Or, are they just considered aliens and have no US Constitutional rights?”

It is this author’s opinion that the School Board should make some earnest effort to effect some school policy change, to make Caro Community Schools more credible. This author and Michigan resident, is embarrassed that our taxpayer paid public school system should exercise such incompetence on our tax dime!

___________________________________________

Abuse can take on many forms. Abuse isn’t restricted to a violent and capricious physical action. It can be abuse by neglect, such as has been reported with the elderly, in medical care facilities. And, abuse isn’t restricted to the aging or to spousal abuse. Abuse can be the withholding of basic human care and compassion to anyone within our neighborly sphere of influence. After all, did not Christ say, “Love your neighbor as yourself?” Which of us would care to (knowingly abuse) ourselves? None of us – that is, if we are all in our right minds.

Unfortunately human abuse in our modern culture has taken on the disguise of applied political correctness in the direct actions of commission and / or omission toward those within one’s sphere of influence. Political correctness is that “perceived” standard of right (from wrong) that is often arbitrary and blindly applied [forced] onto those who have varying different opinions. Political correctness (applied) as a standard (rule of “one size fits all” measurement) ends up being the testy prevailing culture’s substitute for the time tested moral and basic Ten Commandment proper rule and behavior. Hence, political correctness often discriminates against those within its one-way Mack truck road of travel.

Pic of Principal Susan Wright, apparent self-appointed political correctness defender, who by her intolerant and insensitive actions toward a 9 year old child, makes public school taxpayers wonder what type of people are allowed to educate their priceless children. Note: The pic taken from the Caro MI Community Schools website.

Pic of Principal Susan Wright, of Caro Public Schools.  Does she appear as a child abuser? No. She looks “normal.” However, facts tell us that child abuse is not only perpetrated by strangers, but by those who are well known to a child and the child’s family. Above pic taken from the Caro MI Community Schools website.

Furthermore, it is this author’s belief that the 9 year old third grader was abused by the Caro Community Schools principal, Susan Wright, vis-a-vis her actions following the little boy’s cupcake birthday gift to his public school classmates. Unless I am mistaken (and would welcome correction) this child has been suspended from school for no logical, sensible reason. As such (then) added abuse by neglect is “in play.” That’s not even to elaborate upon the emotional damage which most likely has ensued because of the school principal’s abusive rejection of his decorative cupcake gifts to his classmates, of which (event) could have been one of the most happiest moments of this boy’s young life.

Stephanie has left a comment after the recent previous Moralmatters.org article of:

Caro Michigan Community Schools: Public school principal under the poisonous paranoid influence of political correctness 

Stephanie’s comment:

This is insane! He’s a child! Not a gang member or something. Political Correctness is run amuck.  I suggest the school change this absurd policy.

Moralmatters.org replied:

Stephanie –

Thank you for your comment. Yes. What transpired was insane and absurd. And, I think it is a shame that taxpayers would have to pay for this type of incompetence and intolerance visited upon their youth.

Why does media most generally focus cases of child abuse upon religious institutions and not the public school industry? Is it because mainstream media and union teachers are in the same political correctness bed?

What is it with liberal mainstream media that it disproportionately focuses on religious institutional cases of child abuse, [more] than the public school industry? Is it because liberal mainstream media and liberal union teachers are in the same political correctness bed?

I’ve looked at the school policy online. From the very beginning the school principal acted without intellectual thought. [An “educator” – can you believe that?] Her actions toward the little boy were without compassion and basically immoral and unethical. The school policy’s thesis is about, “5205 Possessing, Transporting or Transmitting Dangerous Weapons(Cf. 8300) 5205-2.” I ask the question “Who schooled Ms. Wright?” Why didn’t [and couldn’t] she distinguish between the innocent intent of the child and the cold hard text of the school policy?”

Furthermore, it appears that the principal was only interested in following a blind course (school policy) guide because she may have (drummed up in her little mind) that these toy miniature figurine soldiers were “dangerous.” Maybe the principal was having a bad hair day and thought that the toy cupcake decorations would turn into bats and vampires and destroy her primped day’s appearance………

Finally, what bothers me, is, (according to the news reports) this 9 year old boy was sent home with the toy figurine miniature soldiers. Unless I find out, otherwise, I assume that little Hunter was suspended from school. In that case, (more than any other reason), I would believe that the tax paying parents could bring a lawsuit against this unreasonable school district. [I ask myself: “Where are the school board members in all of this? Why do they allow all this? Why do they allow the school’s superintendent to go on local network TV to defend the school principal and offer a half-ass apology to those who may have been offended?”

Stephanie – Please check back at Moralmatters.org as I think that you have not read the last of this whole sorted political correctness affair……….

For those who would wish, I think that at this time, it would be useless contacting the aforementioned school principal. Principal Susan Wright has made her contention clear. She is entrenched in her politically correct (mind games) world.

For those who desire to voice your sentiments and opinions, please voice by email (or postal letter write them – if you can find their addresses) the School Board Members. They, are the ones to hold the local school system accountable and responsible.

Here, following, is the listing of Board members as per the Caro Community Schools website – and here is the school district’s web page to email each of them. Click here.

John Forshee, President; Dean Tomlinson, Vice-President; Henry Knier, Jr., Secretary; Lisa Graf, Trustee; Bill Thayer, Treasurer; Robert Fetting, Ttustee; Paul Strasz, Trustee

 Note again: Here’s the  Internet web page facility to contact the Board Members.

Anti-Second Amendment propaganda flows with each shooting murder massacre

Gun control fanatics always come out of the woodwork after a national gun shooting massacre. What they fail to realize, is that they are part of the problem - restricting Americans to defend themselves by helping to influence anti-deterrence laws, thus preventing citizens from protecting themselves and others in public places.

Gun control fanatics always ooze out of the woodwork after a national gun shooting massacre. What they fail to realize, is that they are part of the problem – restricting Americans to defend themselves by helping to influence anti-deterrence laws;  preventing citizens from protecting themselves and others in public places.

It was a sad state of events for the Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut and the grieving student and parent survivors. A young man, Adam Lanza, has reportedly murdered 20 elementary school children and 8 adults with one injured. Those who have any compassion, have to sympathize, empathize and grieve with the parents of these young children and the others who perished at the murderous hands and mistaken intentions of this crazed killer.

It is common knowledge that when a tragedy of this magnitude takes place; the liberal media propaganda machine and its liberal supporters and politicians kick-in their misguided efforts to denigrate the US 2nd Amendment Bill of Rights privilege and freedom for US citizens to possess and own guns. All kinds of dishonest and illogical arguments are made, in the excuse (rationalization) to ban a citizen’s right to own his own personal firearm (s) to protect life, limb and domestic castle property.

One has only to witness and think through the implications of this anti-American and malevolent spirit to whittle away and finally take away our 2nd Amendment gun ownership rights.

Following is some logical perspective:

This Moralmatters.org editor found it on the web. Please read it and understand that restricting gun rights to law-abiding citizens, only enables the lawless free and easy access to inflict harm and loss of life upon those who are legally restricted from arming themselves.

Or, think of it this way:  Shouldn’t schools and other public institutions and businesses be legally barred from operating, because murderous thugs can roam about armed, intent upon mass murder upon those who are legally restricted to protect themselves, thus providing for themselves and others a direct [prevention] deterrent from those hell-bent upon murderous massacre?  Politician lawmakers need to lift the foolhardy restrictions against ordinary law-abiding citizens in schools and other public places, so that life and limb can be best protected with defensive deterrent measures.

Following is what politician lawmakers have (mistakenly) done to the state of Illinois -specifically, to the large  city of Chicago. [This following – taken from off the web]:

As sentimental as White House occupier Obama appeared over the latest school massacre shootings; what has he done in his own Chicago hometown to prevent the annual shooting massacres; except to help influence denying law-abiding Chicago citizens their Second Amendments rights to defend themselves and others?

As sentimental as White House occupier Obama appeared over the latest school massacre shootings; what has he done in his own Chicago hometown to prevent the annual shooting massacres? On the contrary, he has helped to influence the prevention of law-abiding Chicago citizens, to exercise their traditional right of Second Amendment privileges, to defend themselves and others!

Excerpt:

>>>>>> Guns are deeply rooted within Swiss culture – but the gun crime rate is so low that statistics are not even kept…..

……..In addition to the government-provided arms, there are few restrictions on buying weapons. Some cantons restrict the carrying of firearms – others do not.

The government even sells off surplus weaponry to the general public when new equipment is introduced.

Guns and shooting are popular national pastimes. More than 200,000 Swiss attend national annual marksmanship competitions.

But despite the wide ownership and availability of guns, violent crime is extremely rare. There are only minimal controls at public buildings and politicians rarely have police protection.

Mark Eisenecker, a sociologist from the University of Zurich told BBC News Online that guns are “anchored” in Swiss society and that gun control is simply not an issue.

Some pro-gun groups argue that Switzerland proves their contention that there is not necessarily a link between the availability of guns and violent crime in society…… <<<<<<<<  – http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/1566715.stm

Why doesn’t Michelle Obama self appointed Fat Czar mind her own business?

When will our nation’s Fat Czar finally realize that she is not needed? Isn’t she satisfied to be the just White House occupier’s scandal ridden First Lady? Why does she feel that she has to meddle in our nation’s public schools? Hasn’t the government-run school system with its union boss public school industry teachers, done enough damage? Or, is Michelle Obama chipping in her worthless two cents as did recently, Bill Nye, the so-called pseudo “science guy?”

The Obama’s claim, or, at least give lip service, that they are Christians. Yet, from their actions, they run rough shod over the American free enterprise system. They overlook one of the Triune God’s choicest gifts to human souls, – that of free will; making personal decisions; free from coercion. Hopefully and Lord willing, the Obama scourge of America will be over, come election time. Our founding fathers never meant for these United States to be another cursed dictatorship or oligarchy venture.

This blog author thinks  it is time for Michelle Obama, to mind her own pea patch!

US Liberal media and the decadent culture

Liberal media’s role in the constant changing decadent culture

The intellectually (bereft) constipated look of Chris Matthews of MSNBC, who reported to his viewing audience, that Obama gave him a thrill up his leg. Matthews is representative of the corrupted liberal news media.

It is this web author’s firm belief that this world’s [cosmos] culture is not improving, but on the decline. The prophetic words of Jesus Christ in the Christian Gospels and those other prophetic words in the rest of the Christian New Testament, evidence this ragged downward trend and pull.

Liberal media and the ones employed by it, are self serving in a number of major ways. This dishonest media adopts certain worldview agendas by means  of refusing to report reality. Instead, it deliberately distorts reality.  Lib media will principally distort reality by censor. This is the suppression (limiting and / or blocking) of relevant information, thus depriving the population masses of needed reality information to help them improve their living conditions.

Not only is there, the discriminate censoring by major media personalities, their only agenda tool; these unsavory media personalities will emphasize their pet pieces of propaganda. This dishonest media thrust accomplishes their propaganda push by a combination of tactics: censor; altering  the news narrative and pure disinformation. And, in order to create its own goals; liberal media will outright lie in order to shape and mold public opinion.  The news media is a business. It is driven by ideology. It is not about journalism; but pointed agendas.

Not only do the media love to trumpet their own agendas; they love to promulgate what they falsely view as the latest supposed “scientific” and statistical  findings. David Kupelian of WND has written an excellent commentary, “The Lie Launderers,” in which (one of the things) he highlights, was how the abortion on demand crowd were able to successfully lie to media. And, of course, the lapdog media willingly accepted the propaganda lie and began to report it because it fit into their corrupted worldview.

Finally, another thing that can be objectively observed over the years about the liberal news media:

With every political change, media sound bite owners have positioned themselves as friendly chameleons to embrace and reflect changing new government power structures. This is not to conclude that liberal media does not have an agenda of its own. It does. And that agenda is to promulgate amoral, immoral manifestations of the sinking decadent culture. Like the Athenian philosophers of old, the liberal news culture is rapt with attention to accept, report and promulgate the latest novelty.

Oh yes;  let’s not forget to follow the Hollywood type money trail of lib media.

Chicago union teachers: Ungrateful and Unrealistic

 

Is this why teachers need unions; as a buffer dike for their sub-standard results?

Chicago teachers strike for first time in 25 years after contract talks fail – Thousands of teachers walked off the job Monday in Chicago, the third-largest U.S. school district, as city officials prepared to look after thousands of students who could end up wandering unsafe streets….. <<<<< – foxnews.com/

Moralmatters.org mini commentary:

It is reported that Chicago union teachers on an average make $76,000 annually, plus their benefits; while their taxpaying working counterparts average $48,000. These working counterparts are the ones taxed for the public school industry. They are the lower paid workers who fund these ungrateful and unrealistic striking teachers.

Why would Moralmatters.org characterize these union Chicago teachers as being ungrateful and unrealistic?

First of all, I believe there is the great shadow of ungrateful attitude and behavior on the part of the union teachers. They were offered a 16% pay hike averaged out, over the next 4 years. That is much, much more than what their employed counterparts will be acquiring in this poor national economy. That should tell the average news reader and network viewer, something. There is an average of about $28,000 difference. How can union teachers expect a disproportionate salary sum with those taxpayers who are basically funding their livelihoods and future retirements? Unrealistic by any measure; considering that these teachers are basically public (non private) “servants.”

The Christian ethic would have those who are gainfully employed, be grateful for being able to work; and thankful for the financial remuneration of that employment work. There are any number of Scriptures which speak to human covetousness and greed; which result in only trouble for those so dissatisfied with their situation and circumstance in life. If one would step back and listen to some of these teachers; I would not doubt that some of them would say that they deserve up to almost twice as what they are being paid. Somehow they think that because they are college graduates working in the public sector of the economy, that they should be paid so much more!

Secondly, many union teachers conveniently overlook the extra benefits of their profession. Now, I’m not referring to wages, health or retirement benefits. I’m referring to the convenience of such a teaching profession. I ask:  Which profession awards the worker a huge 8-10 week’s summer vacation, each and every year? Which employment profession has work time off during all the major holidays, including “spring break?” Which type of employment has only one shift – daytime hours with every weekend off to spend with family, relatives and friends – or, even a part-time weekend job?  Are not these wonderful extra benefits of the teaching profession, that are taken for granted by union public school teachers?

Frankly, I don’t have one ounce of sympathy for these Chicago union teachers; especially when I read the statistics of low test scores; under achieving reading levels and abysmal graduation rates.

Finally, what are these angry teachers essentially conveying [teaching] to the youth of whom they [supposedly] teach? These teachers and their union affiliations actually teach by model; and, in a poor model manner, that if you don’t get your way, you revolt. And, for those students who come from broken homes; that’s all the model they [don’t] need to witness to further reinforce (already instilled) behaviors of restlessness, dissatisfaction and rebellion to parents, authority, society and the culture.

Note:  This web author does not begrudge union employment. I was once, union employed. It was not my choice preferred choice. Union work is forced and so are the extraction of union dues from employee paychecks. This author takes great exception to union organizations and union bosses. Their actions of forced union membership and forced union dues, are contrary to our nation’s traditional free enterprise (capitalistic) system.
