Parents OK With Government Brainwashing Children If It Means Free Babysitting

The Babylon Bee often puts the truth out so starkly that they get away with it because commoners think it is sarcasm, satire or humor. This is one of those that is supremely blunt, but like the printed supermarket tabloids that preceded these guys, it is okay as long as the sheep think it is not serious. – Ted –   The Babylon Bee U.S. Study Finds Most Parents OK With Government Brainwashing Their Children If It Means Free Babysitting     U.S.—A new study has found that the vast majority of parents are OK with the government indoctrinating their children if it means that they get to drop their kids off somewhere for free for seven hours a day.

schools have a right to stab their charges

A current debate topic surrounds the government indoctrination centers injecting neuro-toxins into schoolchildren because “the parents consented to whatever we want to do by sending their children here”. Nothing the parents do or say provides any apparent deterrent to a school administration that decides to forcibly vaccinate the kids. Combinations of tar, feathers, ropes, and trees all seem to have gone out of fashion … along with all other remnants of a free society. You know I am wholly against the maliciously mislabeled, reliably destructive, and often deadly thing they call “vaccine”. However, parents who send their offspring to be programmed into cosmically confused, hyper-complacent, obedient to “authority”, compliant, subordinate servants by their government have already abdicated any valuable […]

my descent into awareness

How does one go from being perfectly normal to occupying the fringe I find myself in? Credit my oldest daughter … though I may well have found another route here had that one not come along, but I remember the turning point she brought home. In primary school she and her best friend shared the scholastic top of their class. The friend’s dad struck it rich, and she went off to an exclusive private high school for ninth grade. My daughter’s Dad couldn’t afford that, so she went to government high school. The next year a full-ride scholarship was offered to my girl, so she rejoined her best friend where they resumed their academic excellence positions. * This school was […]

10 Most Devastating Impacts Of Homeschooling Your Kids

This is another good guest contribution to the Babylon Bee , and from there to here. It comes courtesy of The Tuttle Twins publishers. These are books written to explain liberty, integrity, open markets and similar concepts to children. If you know of children or have a library in your community, consider getting these publications into their hands. – Ted –     Brought to you by:          So– you wanna homeschool your kid, huh? Well, it might not all be as great as you think. Read on for a list of reasons homeschooling may completely ruin your kid.  1. Homeschooling makes your children much more likely to grow up to become cisgender: Is that what you want, […]

9 Ways To Survive As A Non-Leftist On A College Campus

The Babylon Bee hits a home run with this article. It was contributed to them by long-time friends of mine the Advocates for Self Government. – Ted – It’s not easy being a non-leftist on a college campus these days. How do you remain true to your beliefs while being successful in a place run by people who want to cancel you forever? Here are 9 tips for survival:  1. Leave immediately: Leave. GET OUT while you still can! These people are completely insane. Become a union pipe-fitter. They make more than college graduates anyway. You’re welcome. 2. Hide all your Thomas Sowell and Milton Friedman books in a secret compartment in your dorm: Hide them behind your alcohol and illegal drugs, where your […]

Pre-Bait

A high school senior I know who has demonstrated strong academic performance has been offered $1,000 towards tuition at the college she currently plans to attend. Upon hearing about that I coined the term “PRE-BAIT”. Today’s teens are on track to know nothing about economics … just like everyone else. A thousand bucks sounds pretty exciting in their small world. It is going to take them more than four years to catch the bigger picture of the destination this track takes them to. The standard now is a four-year degree in soft-core education with no commensurate income enhancement; a $100,000 college debt to be paid off over the next 50 years working their way up from table-wiping, through burger-flipping […]

arguing using facts and logic is quite often a waste of time, thought and energy

“A religion is sometimes a source of happiness and I would not deprive anyone of happiness. But it is a comfort appropriate for the weak, not for the strong—and you are strong. The great trouble with religion—any religion—is that a religionist, having accepted certain propositions by faith, cannot thereafter judge those propositions by evidence. One may bask in at the warm fire of faith or choose to live in the bleak uncertainty of reason—but one cannot have both,” ― Robert A. Heinlein, Friday In my post card from California I marveled at the fictions the left-coasters hold onto with a death grip whilst judging those of other wisdom to be inferior. The one thing they of the other persuasion have […]

Do not call it “education” … it is anything but

John Taylor Gatto, New York City Teacher of the Year and New York State Teacher of the Year has been exposing the indoctrination system for what it is and offering alternatives to parents willing to put some time and effort into raising their children themselves. He is in good company with Ron Paul, Mises.org and others who have created curriculums for home schooling and alternative schools. It is easier now than ever to defend your offspring from the indoctrination centers. Ah, but what am I talking about? I share a video and link to an article that explains further. How To Protect Your Children From Indoctrination Authored by Linnea Johnson via The Organic Prepper blog, Do you look on with […]

crushing American exceptionalism

In October 2007, my small-town community of Grangeville had a shot at breaking out of stagnation. Sadly it devolved into the same old “community leaders” making sure nothing changed. BUT that isn’t what I’m writing about here. That 12 year old post is here: Idaho Liberty.com – Community Vision. The numbers may have changed slightly; were I betting I would say for the worse. A startling revelation came to us from the facilitator at those meetings and stuck with me: 40% of American 12-year-olds expected to create their own businesses; to be self-employed and even employers as adults. That number drops to 4% by high school graduation. You and I can see it happen. We may not know his number […]

Dumbing US Down

Is the title of John Taylor Gatto‘s 2005 book exposing what his industry was doing TO our children. Several times New York City and NY state Teacher Of The Year, he knew exactly what he was talking about. The US Department of Education has a Newspeak name, as most agencies do. It was created to eliminate constructive education nation-wide. It has apparently been a wild success at that. Homeschool seems to be the only escape as they are crushing any private school that shows signs of success and educational merit. – Ted – K-12: The War against Children By Bruce Deitrick Price American public schools, by all the usual metrics, have steadily declined for a century.  Was this inevitable?  Or is […]

final day of registration for ham class is Friday

This a repeat of my previous announcement. There is one more day of online registration for Darby Adult Ed classes. We stand ONE STUDENT SHORT of having enough to make it happen. I am bringing another amateur radio operator licensing class to Darby, Montana via the Darby Adult Education program in its Spring 2020 schedule. I have not keept track, but think I have personally assisted 40 or 50 people to earning their FCC licenses through my study groups in the Darby library. The snide saying goes, “Those who CAN, DO. Those who cannot, TEACH”. I’m okay wearing that. Good instructors are as rare as good anything else. I did not choose this calling, blessing or curse. It chose me. […]

Ham license class begins February 1st

I am bringing another amateur radio operator licensing class to Darby, Montana via the Darby Adult Education program in its Spring 2020 schedule. I have not keept track, but think I have personally assisted 40 or 50 people to earning their FCC licenses through my study groups in the Darby library. The snide saying goes, “Those who CAN, DO. Those who cannot, TEACH”. I’m okay wearing that. Good instructors are as rare as good anything else. I did not choose this calling, blessing or curse. It chose me. Run with your talents. Every person who has come to all of the class sessions and studied two or more hours between sessions passed the FCC Technician License Exam at the end. […]

higher education

I am definitely not talking about four or more additional years of mind numbing government school indoctrination. We all need to encourage our youth to begin using their heads as early as they begin showing fascination in different areas, or expressing interesting ideas of their own. We must enable them to follow their passions. Pursue their innovations. Create value. Apprentice with intriguing craftsmen. For dang-sure, we do NOT want them wasting four years in a completely dumbed-down university system with no employment possibilities for the uber-expensive degrees offered. I’m not bothering to include the links today, but the ‘hard sciences’ have been eviscerated by Newspeak. There are no solids in the secondary education system today. The whole dang thing […]

Darby Adult Ed calendar is up

I have contributed numerous classes to the community, most through the Darby Adult Education program in southwestern Montana. An interesting array of people share their skills and passions with others in this nice little community. This Spring Semester is no exception. We have many nice choices in front of us for new experiences, knowledge, training, friendships and fun. I am bringing my first-level Amateur Radio class back by popular demand. I must be nearing 50 people I have helped earn their FCC Technician or General Class licenses. My guarantee: If you attend every class and study a few hours a week, you will pass the FCC Technician Exam at the end regardless of your technical background or lack thereof. I […]
