"Universal Pre-School" is the Government's Plan...

In his State of the Union address, President "Screwtape" Obama said he wanted to “make high-quality preschool available to every child in America” and “make sure none of our children start the race of life already behind.”

The public education system, along with institutes of "higher learning", has been co-opted by the radical left. This is not anything new, inasmuch as the teachers of today were taught by yesterday's left-wingers (or those teacher's who taught the teachers of yesterday's left wingers). I believe it began in the late 1960's - when the so-called "anti-establishment drug and free-love" sub-culture of the 1960's (or at least those who weren't too stoned to pass their finals) were awarded their teaching certificates. Most of these left-wing liberal-"progressives" went directly to teaching in the public system, many at the K-6 level, and some at the 7-12 level. What's wrong with that?

The public "educational system" has been replaced with the Federal Indoctrination System, replete with  revisionist history (history retold the way the left wishes it had been), political correctness, studies of aberrant sexual behaviors now deemed "normal" by the government, marginalization of Christianity, and other left-wing absurdities. To effectively indoctrinate a body of people, you must begin the process of indoctrination as early in their lives as possible. In "teaching" children in grades K-6, the process is simplest. The political minds of children ages 5-11 are essentially "dry sponges" ready to absorb any liquid in which they are immersed. Whether it be the purest of spring waters, or the liquid waste from the sewers of political belief. "Common Core" education, being forced upon us by the federal government, is the most blatant transference of liquid waste to date.

The goal of Common Core education is absolute and total  indoctrination of the youth of America into the belief that all people should achieve the same rewards for their labors - regardless of education, experience, competence, employment status, or difficulty and/or hazards involved in the performance of those labors. Quite simply put, those slackers who elect to do nothing, should be able to have the same standard of living as those who work 40-80 hours per week. That is the socialist mindset that currently governs and indoctrinates the children of our Republic.

The federal government is not the solution to any educational/social problem - it is source of the problem. "Project Head Start" has been in existence for 50+ years, at the cost of trillions of tax dollars, yet the accomplishments of those who have had access to the program, are no better than those who did not have access. Wasteful effort? Obviously.

Education should be controlled at the state level, not the federal level. State boards of education should determine the content and conduct of the learning process for our children. Our educational emphasis should be on the 3R's, not on "Heather Has Two Mommies" - history, not homosexuality, math not Muslims, and science not (left-wing icon) Sol Alinsky.

Our founders gave us a Constitution designed to benefit those who made the effort to become self-sufficient through apprenticeship (training), self-motivation, and hard work. Our Constitution also was designed to limit areas of our daily lives in which the federal government could involve itself, and - regarding those areas where involvement was permitted - it places further restrictions upon how deeply the government may involve itself. Our founders saw the potential for abuse of power by any governing body, and took steps to minimize the possibility that the federal government could someday seize all power from the people. They insured, through our Constitution that necessary means of recourse would always be available to the citizens, in the body of the Second Amendment - which contains the phrase "shall not be infringed".

Sadly, the Constitution is only as good as the people's will to protect and defend it - and there is some question over whether We the People yet possess that will. The administration "end-runs" the Constitution at every opportunity, circumventing it's original intent, ignoring the requirements of government therein, and constantly chipping away at the people's Bill of Rights. The circumstances under which such flagrant violations of the Constitution will end is not yet clear. The "checks and balances" are not working as they were designed  - Congress rubber stamps the malfeasance (bordering upon treason) of the administration, and the Federal Court system only fails to support their inaction when a blind man can see the criminality.

An "Oath of Office" is only an oath when it is sworn to by people of honor. There is little-if-any honor in the Federal District of Columbia, so that part of the "Oath of Office" where they swore to "protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic..."

The "Ship of State" is Crewed by FOOLS!

Those "running the country" are not stupid, but they are very foolish. They foolishly follow a political belief system that has proven, time and time again, to be unsustainable over the long haul . Their support comes from both the foolish and the stupid among us. The single issue voter, the "What's in it for me" people, the uneducated, the uninformed and the unconcerned.

We the People are being led down the proverbial "Garden Path" by the current administration, whose hope is that we will be distracted from the quicksand by all the pretty flowers. We are irrecoverably mired in international debt, and yet we continue to borrow more! The government continues to print currency with nothing behind it, devaluing the few dollars that the average working person manages to retain after taxes. Nationally, we have the highest unemployment since the Great Depression, and more jobs are being lost daily to foreign countries and foreign nationals here on work visas. Yet the voracious appetite of our Behemoth federal government grows, demanding more taxes to support it's weight. The elected "leader" of our government lives the lavish lifestyle of a Potentate... while simultaneously demanding that We the People "tighten our belts". And, exactly where are those 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition for which DHS has contracted (ammunition that is prohibited by International Law from use in "war" - going to be used? Is our government so afraid of We the People, that they must have a supply of ammunition sufficient to kill every living American almost 6 times over? A supply great enough to fight a sustained war for more than 20 years. A government that serves the will of the people has no reason to fear them. What we are observing is the gradual erosion - and intentional usurpation - of our Constitution, and with it our God-given rights.

The "Ship of State" is captained and crewed by fools who desire to rule their subjects, rather than appropriately govern the citizens. How did this happen? We have an over-abundance of fools who are of legal voting age, who refuse to recognize the political, economic and social "reefs" that lie ahead in the Sea of Socialism! The ruling class in Washington D.C., is composed of anti-Americans, and a Congress that lacks the moral courage to challenge them.

I hope those who supported this desecration of our country and ourConstitution by their ballots are proud of themselves. "Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall." The "destruction" and "fall" are visible on the horizon, for those who care to look.

WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS - American Revolution Part II, and the10th Crusade

The world would be a wonderful place to live, if there weren't people in it to screw things up! As of March 1, 2013 there were 60 countries at war, and 391 "armed conflicts" underway within those countries.

We find ourselves in a chaotic world, although for the most-part peace currently reigns at home. Yet, to many, it seems as if we may be on the brink of Part II of the American Revolution. We have an administration composed entirely of left-wingers, Marxists, Socialist-"progressives", and other varieties of Communists. We also have high unemployment, a devalued currency, ever-increasing taxation, outrageous international indebtedness, circumvention - by our government - of our Constitution, the use of military drones within the borders of the USA, lax border control, the abridgement of the Bill of Rights, Amendments I, IV, VIII and X, and a push to infringe upon Amendment II, which our founders specifically prohibited. Why is the administration pushing the envelope of what We the People will quietly tolerate? First because our elected Congress lacks the courage to say "ENOUGH!". They will not unite for the good of the country and say no to the spoiled, "my way or no way" attitude of our President, Barry the Bankrupter.
There are a few of us who are actually paying attention, and connecting the dots. Individually, the actions of our government may appear innocuous... but, when looked upon individually as the pieces of a much larger puzzle, a highly disturbing picture develops.
The motto of the left-wing is not only, "Never let a crisis go to waste", it includes the adjunct phrase, "If there is no crisis create one you can solve" (exercising direction by misdirection and  smoke and mirrors leadership). Eventually, the American people will become unsettled over this incompetence at all levels of government, and there will be an uncivil civil reaction. This reaction is just what the Commies-in-Charge want, as it will supply them with much-needed justification to impose martial law upon the people, and within that construct reduce the population.

The opening shots of the Tenth Crusade were fired on September 11, 2001, when Islamists attacked the World Trade Center, using aircraft as flying bombs, and taking over 3,300 lives. The goal of Islam is to dominate the world as the single religion, while the goal of the rest of the world is to choose their own religious beliefs, or to choose none at all. The followers of Islam are involved in the majority of those 391 "armed conflicts" mentioned in my first paragraph. They are "eating the elephant... one bite at a time". Conquering other people's right to choose by use of "the sword". If they are not stopped, and stopped SOON, they may just succeed in accomplishing their goal. Just my 2¢ worth. If you choose to disagree with my assessment, I will support your right to remain ignorant, and to perish forthwith from the Earth.
