• If Conservatives Want Support of Minorities, Fix The Public Schools

    If Conservatives want to be guaranteed a victory in the next couple of elections, they would need the Women’s, Black and Hispanic voting blocks. Given those, it would be easy.

    Getting those is also easy. Fix the public schools.

    Fire the opening salvo in what will be a long, hard fight. Let America know, business as usual don’t cut it anymore! It ‘s time to dismantle the systems that, over 40 years, have proven to be failures. Make the left try to defend the indefensible.

    Start forcing votes on legislation to redirect our educational system to those that really care, local communities.

    First, end forced busing. Put it to a vote. Ask the parents if they wish to see their children continue to get up 3 hours early, to be bused across town to and from some other neighborhood. Ask them if they think busing has worked.

    Second, remove all Federal involvement with the schools. Point out the folly of the Department of Education, the utter failure to meet its mandate, and the decline of Public Schools since its creation. It is a waste of money.

    Legislate that each school is a stand-alone entity, like a franchise. If it can’t survive, or is running a deficit, declare it bankrupt, dissolve all contracts and reorganize under a local school board.

    Throw the unions out of any school with a failure or drop-out rate over 35%. Throw out any janitorial contracts.

    Offer neighborhood schools to a locally chosen neighborhood school board, monitored by a nationally recognized company of CPA’s. All monies saved from eliminating the Dept. of Ed and its regulatory mandates, forced busing, or insurance for it, plus getting rid of the inept, corrupt unions, would be enough to hire a responsible company that supplies teachers.  Take competitive bids for the positions at the schools from the new “teacher clearinghouses” that would spring up to assist the unemployed, newly motivated teachers get back into the business of teaching basic education, not political philosophies or self esteem BS. College admissions administrators complain our high school graduates are ignorant of basic skills…but they feel real good about themselves! No more!

    Contract with a, ” Teachers Clearinghouse,” for accredited, competent teachers, who have to perform to maintain their jobs, not show up to maintain their collective bargaining. This way, that teachers company is responsible for benefits, pensions and retirement. Teachers hired outside the “clearing house” structure must add costs of their maintaining their own health care in their bid, we will not pay it.

    All teachers must submit courses and classes on DVD before school year, and stick to predetermined course structure.
    All students will have cds of the complete course, before school year commences, so it can be referred to and studied at their own learning rate.

    Start breaking the monopoly the government has bestowed upon an inefficient, uncaring union, and parents of all backgrounds will be appreciative.

    Parents are parents. Start showing real concern for their children’s welfare, and you will have their support.

    EDITORS NOTE: In my opinion, the only education our government should insist upon and require is however long it takes to learn to read and comprehend proficiently, using our founding documents and early history of this great nation as learning material; learn the value of money and its accurate use in business; and the ability to write coherently, using the early letters of our founders and General George Washington’s  missives on the greatness of America to teach expression and honesty. With those skills, you can look up everything you ever want to learn, start to make money doing it, and blog about your successes in Capitalism, with or without guidance. Freedom is a responsibility. Teach your children to read, don’t wait for the schools to ruin them. If you read, they will.

  • Police “Outrage” About White House Guest’s Lyrics, Too Little, Too Late!

    Police “Outrage” About White House Guest’s Lyrics, Too Little, Too Late!

    Let me start by saying that my family, immediate and extended, is a police family. From retired Lieutenants and Sargeants to Detectives and Patrolmen. I have friends who went out on disability after being shot in the line of duty.

    My eyeglasses kept me from the job after getting high 90’s on the entrance tests twice in the 1970’s.

    That said, I have a message for Police, everywhere, regarding their recent “outrage” over obama’s invitation to the White House for a street punk rapper I will not name.

    “You didn’t care when obama was running side by side with a terrorist that had, along with his anti-American wife and cadre of radical killer friends, (the ones obama now calls “advisors”, thanks to you), bombed New York City Police Headquarters, wounding your brother officers.

    “You did not care.

    “While the National Fraternal Order of Police did not endorse obama, (but they did endorse Eric Holder, even with his anti- first and second amendment past and SDS, Weather Underground pardons), the National Order of Police Organizations did, as did the International Union of Police Associations, and so did AFSCME, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. In YOUR name.

    “The silence from you rank and file officers was deafening concerning these endorsement. Where were all the resignations, where are all the stories of officers bucking the unions, publicly denouncing your dues being used to get a street thug terrorist sympathizer elected as the countries chief Law Enforcement official?

    “No, like so called “moderate muslims”, who sit silently while their brethren spread evil in their name, you rank and file police obediently sit while your union leaders bring disgrace to your profession.  You’re up in arms about making citizens pay more for your all important collective bargaining rights, (http://www.fop.net/), but worry about cop killers and terrorists around the president? No, not so much.

    “He surrounded himself with “SDS” and “Weather Underground” terrorists,  and police unions all over the country shook his hand, kissed his ring and ass, and put him and his radical Attorney General in office. Suddenly, you’re upset about LYRICS?

    The blood of the police around the country, spilled by Bill Ayers and his cohorts, was enough for us. Why not you?

    You should have remembered the killer Joanne Chesimard and her victim (New Jersey State Troopers James Harper, who survived, and Werner Foerster, who did not), when you helped Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, two of the most wanted criminals in America for years, get their handpicked thug elected.

    You didn’t care.

    Start denouncing these corrupt union endorsements, and withhold your union dues until honest brokers represent you. Get the AFL-CIO to stop supporting cop-killer Abdul Jamal, and go back to banning communists as union leaders. The National Fraternal Order of Police sent a letter concerning their disgust at the support for Abdul Jamal, but where are all the rank and file letters and protests? What about all the other police organizations? I have heard ONE police voice complaining. That is not “outrage.” That is sad.

    We’ve been “outraged” since you helped get obama and his thugs elected. Welcome to our outrage.
