A bill introduced this month in Congress would put the federal and state governments in the business of tracking how fat, or skinny, American children are.
Little by little, bit by bit. They chip away at freedom and at the same time, add more government bureaucracy. This will be sold as such an innocent thing, so we can all protect the little kids. But at some point it will turn into more ways to control more of our lives. The more info they have, the more they can use to control behaviors.
It's not only as land grab, it's a "very soul and spirit" grab.
How ironic is this?
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who has been critical of Arizona's new immigration law, said Thursday he hasn't yet read the law and is going by what he's read in newspapers or seen on television.
Congress doesn't read the bills it passes, so why should the Executive Branch read what it criticizes?
Arizona has gone one step further.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill targeting a school district's ethnic studies program, hours after a report by United Nations human rights experts condemned the measure.
State schools chief Tom Horne, who has pushed the bill for years, said he believes the Tucson school district's Mexican-American studies program teaches Latino students that they are oppressed by white people.
This is what all states must do to combat something that is way too far out of control. As it is now, there are many schools in America that are teaching minorities to hate white people. We sure don't need it.
It's definitely being done and the federal government is planting and cultivating seeds of strife between the races, with their philosophical approach to education. We have the problems we have now, because the message is no longer equality. It is empowerment.
If there is to ever be a sound world for all of our kids and grandkids to live in, we must stop hate on all fronts. There is no "two ways" about it.
Boozing it up, French-style.
A 23-year-old man died Thursday after an accident at a huge alcohol-drenched party organized on Facebook—one of two such events held simultaneously in two French cities that drew nearly 20,000 people and, police say, are a dangerous trend.
There used to be a group of French readers here, who frequented a French blog that fought French bashing by denigrating American culture, while at the same time promoting the moral and intellectual superiority of their country.
They don't come around here anymore and it's a shame. I would like to read their explanations for this. But with the grandeur of haute culture they lay claim to, it only goes to show that stupidity knows no national boundaries. We have our share, they have theirs. So what?
Watch the big bad teacher beat up a defenseless kid.
It takes someone real tough to beat up on a kid. My how proud this piece of vermin must feel. But that's not all of it.
It turns out she was facing charges before this incident. And.....she was still teaching. They might want to take a look at this charter school and the other teachers employed here. I know it's a charter school. But even at that, the bad apples need to be sorted out and eliminated.
All I can say is, it's a good thing her victim wasn't anyone related to me.
