This is why we’re raising a bunch of victims

2 Comments

I often have written about school zero tolerance sense policies and obscenely biased, wimpy, cowardly and downright idiotic policies that are churning out panty-soiling ignorami into our society. These are victims who are unable to stand up for themselves, who are too weak and ineffective to defend themselves, too lazy to take personal responsibility for their own safety, and dependent upon others – anyone but themselves – to keep them safe.

Want to see how schools spawn such gutless, torpid, pathetic excuses for actual human beings? They start with this.

dumbassery

This is the advice a school in Nebraska gives to children faced with bullying.

Do not stand up for yourself.

Do not treat bullies like enemies.

Be a good sport, and don’t tell on the person who is abusing you.

Just sit there and take it like a good pathetic victim!

This repulsive set of rules may be the most egregious example of the seeds of cowardice and ineptitude. This is where it all starts – in schools that breed spinelessness and impotence.

Luckily, after being inundated with a plethora of parental outrage, the school apologized and sniveled and finally sent home a flyer that at the very least doesn’t encourage kids to lay down and take it like good little victims.

When the Redhead was just a little guy – all of maybe 2-3 years old – he attended a private daycare near where we used to live. A small kid I’ll call Projectile (you will understand why in a minute) picked the Redhead as a chew toy. To this day I’m not sure what in the world the mother of that kid was doing to him. He bit, scratched and hit. He ate gravel. He refused to stop, no matter how much the staff of the daycare center tried to control him.

Poor little Redhead came home every day with welts all over his body – arms, legs, neck, torso – no part of his little body was immune to Projectile’s teeth! The staff didn’t know what to do other than to lock up Projectile the entire day, but that wasn’t exactly an optimal solution. So the Redhead and I sat down and had a little talk. And by talk, I mean I taught him how to hit – how to hit hard. If you think toddlers can’t learn this effectively, you’re sadly mistaken. We practiced for several hours, and I told him that if Projectile bit him again, he was to defend himself the way I taught him.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, I got a call the very next day. Apparently, Projectile decided that the Redhead tasted better than his lunch, so he sunk his teeth into his leg yet again.

That’s where it ended. The Redhead, I was told, struck out. He struck Projectile with such a forceful punch, that Projectile apparently flew back about three feet (hence earning his nickname), and sat there dazed for a minute.

The daycare director told me that while they do not condone violence, and they had no authorization to use corporal punishment on a child in their care, they could only watch the Redhead’s strike (and applaud internally, I was told).

End result: Projectile never bit the Redhead again. Ever.

He was still an odd child. He was sort of a savage kid, who still insisted on eating gravel and destroying books and toys. But at least he didn’t use the Redhead or any other kid as a chew toy.

Sometimes, you just have to stand up for yourself. In the end, you are your last line of defense, and no one in authority should encourage the idea that your natural state is that of a victim.

That just ain’t true.

Stupidest thing uttered by politician this week

That dubious honor goes to Nanny Bloomberg – the gun-banning, soda-limiting, salt-hating tyrant from New York, who has decided to dub himself saint.

In an interview with the New York Times, Bloomberg asserted he was doing God’s work by controlling every aspect of his subjects’ lives.

“I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close,” Bloomberg said.

Thank goodness I’ve already decided I’m going to hell. I going, buying a hotel and charging extra for air conditioning, bitches! Because if that oozing hemorrhoid in the asshole of life is off to heaven, it would be an unbearable place to spend eternity.

No thanks.

Official “entrusted with the duty to protect and serve the American public” Serves Himself and his Pals

My latest for JPFO.

Once upon a time, there was this agency. It was created in the aftermath of a gargantuan tragedy in a country whose enemies supposedly hated it for the freedoms it protected. The country decided to do something about this “freedom hatred,” so it created an agency that terrorized little children, victimized the elderly, stole money and property and molested passengers in airports nationwide. That’ll show ‘em! They can’t hate us for our freedoms any longer! See? It’s all for your safety!

“Mental Health” as a Disarmament Tool

What happens to all those vets who may need some help getting acclimated when they return from downrange? Will they be disarmed? Will their personal relationship with their counselor or VA psychiatrist be revealed to anyone who accesses the NICS system, just so politicians can claim they closed that “mental health loophole”?

My latest for JPFO. Read it below.

Los Angeles Unified School District – redefining stupid

4 Comments

This story is a few days old, but the stupid from it still burns. Apparently, a popular science teacher was removed from teaching classes, because someone shat their pants in fear of his students’ science projects.

Schiller was ordered to report daily to a district administrative office pending an investigation after two students turned in science projects that were designed to shoot small projectiles.

One project used compressed air to propel a small object, but it was not connected to a source of air pressure, so it could not have been fired. (In 2012, President Obama tried out a more powerful air-pressure device at a White House Science Fair that could launch a marshmallow 175 feet.) [emphasis mine]

Another project used the power from an AA battery to charge a tube surrounded by a coil. When the ninth-grader proposed it, Schiller told him to be more scientific, to construct and test different coils and to draw graphs and conduct additional analysis, said the student’s parents, who also are Los Angeles teachers.

A school employee saw the air-pressure project and raised concerns about what looked to her like a weapon, according to the teachers union and supporters. Schiller, who said he never saw either completed project except in photos, was summoned and sent home.

Yeah, I was speechless too. Apparently some sniveling cuntsore soiled herself at the thought of a kid being able to construct something that propels small objects, and decided that it was time to get rid of the teacher. Because keeping kids ignorant – even more ignorant than they already are, given our science and math scores compared to other nations – is preferable to being able to build stuff.

Ferpetessake!

Worse yet, the successful effort to remove the teacher appears to be rather auspicious, since he’s also the teachers’ union representative on campus.

Schiller, 43, also was the teachers union representative on the campus and had been dealing with disagreements with administrators over updating the employment agreement under which the faculty works. His suspension, with pay, removed him from those discussions.

This particular tidbit was buried at the bottom of the article – the second paragraph to the end.  By all reports, this was a very popular teacher, and believe me, those are rare. Additionally, the kids in his classes, which include AP biology and psychology, as well as honors biology and psychology, now have a free period, with their teacher in purgatory and the sub having no psychology experience whatsoever, so instead of learning, they’re sitting around with their thumbs up their asses.

Stupid? No.

This is weapons grade stupid! (pardon my “weapons” reference, lest someone in the Los Angeles Unified School District shit themselves at the thought of someone uttering the word “weapon.”)

But if you thought the burning stupid ended there, you’re sadly mistaken, because what happened to the student (per his father’s report) took a flying leap over stupid and landed squarely into corrupt and egregious!  Rogan Ferguson, the father of one of the students, explains:

I am the father of the child who developed the ‘coil gun’ project. Here are some other aspects of the story that are not yet being reported:

1st: They interrogated my son twice, removing him from the classroom, without my permission or knowledge.

2nd: They refuse to provide any information about who interrogated my son, what questions were asked, and what were his responses.

3rd: One thing my son remembers is that after he had completed a written statement, the Assistant Principal felt that his statement didn’t provide enough evidence against the teacher, and went fishing for more details that could be used against the teacher.

4th: The district refuses to return the project. When we attempted to file a stolen property report with the LAPD, detectives refused to accept the report, saying that it would be pointless, and that the Los Angeles Unified School District had Mafia-like power in the city.

As it stands, the district is claiming the right to remove children from instruction, interrogate them for hours, and provide no information to the parents about what happened in the the closed-off interrogation room. This is unacceptable, and it is sad that it appears that we will need legal representation to find out what happened to our son during the two hours of his interrogation.

It does appear that the school district is claiming all those authorities. It is also beyond egregious that the administrators are using children as tools to remove teachers that apparently don’t toe the line.

Using. Children. As. Tools. In. Administrative. Games.

Using. Kids. As. Weapons.

If this were MY child removed from class, interrogated, his property confiscated and his words twisted, those school administrators would crawl away with their asses missing. And I guarantee you that the Redhead would not tolerate said behavior either, which would probably result in a suspension at the very least for disrespect, and possibly a throat punch. And I can also guarantee you that I would be in that office with my hand around the throat of the first fuck cake administrator who tried to discipline my kid after treating them in such a manner and getting said well-deserved throat punch!

The good news is that the students apparently recognize a quality teacher when they meet him, and they staged a demonstration a few days ago to protest Greg Schiller’s removal.

Meanwhile, the LAUSD put out the following drooling release:

“We will always err on the side of protecting students,” the statement read. “On the other hand, the District does not reassign employees on a whim.  The reassignment of employees is taken very seriously. For this reason, there is a rigorous decision making process associated with the reassignment of employees.”

Rigorous, eh? Bullying students into altering their statements to paint the teacher in a negative light. Removing an educator based on the irrational phobia of an obviously paranoid school employee. Confiscating the science project in question, so no one can actually judge its merit for themselves and refusing to return the property, even though there is no criminal investigation pending, and the project cannot be considered “evidence” in any legal definition of the word. That’s rigorous?

No, that’s the act of an organized criminal, who cannot win by using fair means.

And once in a very rare occasion, I will agree with the teachers’ union. This is nothing but a FAIL – an effort to punish a science teacher” for teaching science.”

But it may be much more than that, because the short, buried paragraph about Schiller being the union’s representative on campus, whose job it was to work to resolve disagreements with the administration over updating the employment agreement under which the faculty works, speaks volumes about the administration’s true goal in removing this teacher.

 

Feds retreat from Nevada ranch… makes one wonder (UPDATED)

17 Comments

I’ve never been a conspiritard. Y’all know this.  Most of the time I ridicule them mercilessly. But even a broken clock is right twice a day, so there may be something to the theory that the Feds nearly instantaneous retreat from the Bundy Ranch, where they have been congregating in what appeared to be an attempt to start a bit of a range war over grazing rights.

For those of you who don’t know…

[Cliven] Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a “range war” against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of his sons was arrested while protesting the removal of the cattle.

“I have no contract with the United States government,” Bundy said. “I was paying grazing fees for management and that’s what BLM was supposed to be, land managers and they were managing my ranch out of business, so I refused to pay.”

The federal government had countered that Bundy “owes the American people in excess of $1 million ” in unpaid grazing fees and “refuses to abide by the law of land, despite many opportunities over the last 20 years to do so.”

See, if you refuse the government’s “services,” because they… you know… suck, they are apparently entitled to steal your property. Or so they thought.

Bundy thought differently and was ready to defend his property, if the need arose. For a while there, things got tense, and those of us watching really thought the need would arise.

And then, all of a sudden, the feds decided to pull out.

“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,” BLM Director Neil Kornze said.

“We ask that all parties in the area remain peaceful and law-abiding as the Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service work to end the operation in an orderly manner,” he said.

I’d say that’s a pretty smart move. I doubt anyone wanted a land war in Nevada. But some believe there might be more to the pullout than what meets the eye.

Now, there’s no way I’m linking to the Infowars psychos or driving any kind of traffic their way… ever. But that said, their claim is that the Bureau of Land Management’s Director, who was conveniently Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-ickhead.) former senior adviser, purged documents from the BLM’s site indicating that the reason BLM wants Bundy’s cattle off the land is to make room for solar panel power stations. The documents that were deleted by the Director, apparently entitled, “Cattle Trespass Impacts” claim that the presence of Bundy’s cattle impacts the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”

Now, I have no way of knowing if any of this is truly real. I do know this, however, that almost immediately after the alleged “news” broke, BLM announced its retreat from the area.

Fortuitous timing, no?

I’ll leave it at that.

UPDATE: I knew there was a reason why I refuse to link to Infotards. Breitbart has some interesting information that actually refutes the conspiritard theory du jour, but admits there are definitely questions.

Despite the obvious partisan gain to be had if Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s son Rory (a failed 2010 Nevada gubernatorial candidate) had somehow been involved in a “land grab” affecting the Bundy family ranch operation—the facts just do not pan out as such. Indeed, Rory Reid did in fact have a hand in plans to reclassify federal lands for renewable energy developments. Just northeast of Las Vegas and Nellis Air Force Base, plans were drawn by Reid allies to potentially develop 5,717 acres of land for such use. While it would be fair to claim that such activity was in Bundy’s relative neighborhood, the federal lands once leased by the family were more than 20 miles away, east of Overton, Nevada. Contrasting maps offered by InfoWars and those entered into federal court record prove such a theory to be a stretch.

Additionally, this feud began more than 20 years ago, and only RECENTLY did Harry Reid’s senior advisor purged the documents from BLM’s records? Not sure I believe that either. But again… why the purge? Why was it needed in the first place?

As I said earlier, I take everything with a grain of salt, because Alex Jones and the drooling fuckwads at Infotards do nothing but screech “CONSPIRACY!” at every turn. But there are definitely questions to be answered here – especially those about the federal government’s authority to simply push out families from the ranching business by restricting more and more land because of some random squirrel or reptile it claims to want to protect. Do the rat’s rights trump the humans’? I don’t think so.

On the other hand, “I believe this is a sovereign state of Nevada,” Bundy recently told a radio reporter. “…I abide by all of Nevada state laws. But, I don’t recognize the United States Government as even existing.”

Really, dude? You might want to read this nation’s founding documents. That little document called the Constitution, even. I somehow get the feeling this guy quickly admits that the US government exists when it suits his purposes.

In other words, he strikes me as a douchebag, so…

Lots of interesting things going on here. Wonder what will happen.

Have you ever heard of the Small Arms Survey? They claim to be impartial and objective when providing firearms-related data to governments. My JPFO alert shows they’re neither impartial, nor objective.
