GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Gooferment Skrules discriminate against the poor kids

No pay, no play! Poor kids banned from NY school carnival
Published May 24, 2015New York Post

No party for the poor.

PS 120 in Flushing held a carnival for its students on Thursday, but kids whose parents did not pay $10 were forced to sit in the auditorium while their classmates had a blast.

Close to 900 kids went to the Queens schoolyard affair, with pre-K-to-fifth-grade classes taking turns, each spending 45 minutes outside. The kids enjoyed inflatable slides, a bouncing room and a twirly teacup ride. They devoured popcorn and flavored ices. DJs blasted party tunes.

But more than 100 disappointed kids were herded into the darkened auditorium to just sit or watch an old Disney movie while aides supervised — the music, shouts and laughter outside still audible.

So much for the Gooferment Skrules as the great equalizer.

I can’t imagine them doing worse.

And, for those of you who thought “free Gooferment education” was a great idea, this should come as big wake up call.

Can you imagine a parent funded student focused achievement oriented school doing such? I can’t.

Separation Education and State!

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient and here’s another example.

How do you think those children felt?

POLITICAL: Switch all pension plans to defined-contribution!

A Wake-Up Call for Public Pension Systems
Jason Russell | 10/03/2014 |

*** begin quote ***

For decades, public pension systems have been doling out more than they take in. Labor unions have stymied reform efforts, but the latest estimates of the public pension gap may finally serve as a wake-up call.

A new study from Moody’s Investors Service, the bond credit rating business, reports that the level of unfunded liabilities for the 25 largest state and local U.S. public pensions is now more than $2 trillion. The gap is more than three times higher than it was just a decade ago.

*** and ***

No one wants to see pensioners live poorer lives, caused by broken promises and bankrupt pensions. The public pension system’s integrity must be protected with common-sense reforms that acknowledge the reality of the constantly growing pension gap. The ideal reform for struggling pension systems would be a switch from defined-benefit to defined-contribution pension plans.

*** end quote ***

For the various Pepuls Republiks of Nu Jerzee, Nu Jerk, Taxachusetts, Kalifornication, and Flori-Duh, it’s too late.

The Teachers Unions, the politicians, the bureaucrats, and Crony Capitalists control the Gooferment.

Best possible outcome for the poor and the taxpayers is that these “disaster zones” go broke. Like Detroit.

Withdraw your consent by leaving these “theft zones”. 

Expect the worst.

Buy a mini bond, you must be out of your mind.

Even a silver coin will preserve your wealth better!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Lapdog media conceals Gooferment bad behavior

Victims’ Families Speak Out Against Obama, Networks Don’t Care

*** begin quote ***

The mother of ISIS beheading victim James Foley told CNN’s Anderson Cooper, on September 11, that she was “embarrassed and appalled” by the White House’s handling of her son’s kidnapping. On September 8 a spokesman for the family of ISIS victim Steven Sotloff claimed that both families were “bullied and hectored” by the administration.

So how many Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network stories have been devoted to helping these families tell their shocking stories of a White House that let them down and even intimidated them? Just three (CBS 2, ABC 1, NBC 0).

However, in the summer of 2005 when anti-Iraq war mom Cindy Sheehan camped out in front of George W. Bush’s Crawford, Texas ranch the networks flooded their evening and morning shows with 100 stories (ABC 37, NBC 33, CBS 30) in the first month (August 9 through September 9) of coverage alone.

The Gooferment gets away with bad behavior because the Media is “in bed with the D’s”.


How much more obvious can it be?

POLITICAL: Hemp, why not?

5 Surprising Health Benefits of Hemp
Brandi, selected from Diets in Review
August 17, 2013

*** begin quote ***

Hemp has always had trouble stepping out of the shadow of its dirty cousin marijuana. While it is closely related to whacky tobaccy, hemp has microscopic amounts of THC — the chemical in marijuana that gets you high — and eating hemp foods won’t jeopardize your next drug test. The health benefits of hemp are so vast that people are beginning to abandon the antiquated stereotypes of the versatile plant.

Sharon Palmer, author of The Plant Powered Diet, wasn’t wasting her breath when she said, “I think hemp is the next ‘it’ food — it has been for a while.” The hemp seed is bursting with Omega-6 and Omega-3, essential fatty acids that have heart health and anti inflammatory benefits. Hemp seeds are nutty in flavor and breathe life into salads, desserts, yogurts, cereals, and breads. Hemp seeds can be turned into butter, milk, protein powder, finishing oil, and soap.

Unfortunately, Uncle Sam outlawed hemp farming in 1958, a shame when you consider how amazing a crop it is. The plant thrives without pesticides, purifies the soil around it, and kills weeds. The U.S. is the only country that bans industrial hemp farming, quelling what could be an agricultural and financial boon for our indebted country.

How about we get the Gooferment out of farming?

Why do we have a “Department of Agriculture” any way?

Oh yeah, that’s right we need to reward “crony farmers” who make contributions to politicians.

Why can’t we feed the world with our exports?

INSPIRATIONAL: Schools kill creativity

Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. 

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we’re educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.

Another “don’t miss” TED talk.

I always criticize Gooferment Skrules because they are immoral, ineffective, and inefficient.

Here’s someone saying that what “school” deliver is not right for the future of humanity.

Can “We, The People” change?

GUNS: “Zero-Tolerance”; “Zero-Sense”

When “Zero-Tolerance” Makes “Zero-Sense”
Posted on June 14, 2013

*** begin quote ***

We’ve been reporting very regularly on ridiculous cases involving over-zealous school officials misinterpreting and wrongly enforcing “zero-tolerance” rules.

In March, we reported on an outrageous case of a seven-year-old Baltimore, Md. student who, according to a March 2, Daily Caller article, was suspended for two days for the nefarious act of shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun. Yes, a breakfast pastry.

According to the young student, he was eating the strawberry pastry during snack time and was biting off pieces in an attempt to shape it into a mountain. Apparently, the teacher thought the student’s handiwork instead looked like a gun, and escorted him to the principal’s office for prompt disciplinary action.

In a recent follow-up story, the Daily Caller reported on more bad news for the young victim of over-zealous school administrators.

How dumb are we?

The Sheeple and Clovers don’t get it.

And, the Gooferment Skrules are mindless idiots as well.

There’s a reason that teachers are the lowest rung on the academic ladder.

Those who can do; those who can’t teach; those who can’t teach, teach teaching. Obviously there’s another tier: those who can teach teaching and have no common sense become school bureaucrats!

Why torture children with this type of a system. Remember the Jack in the box model comes from Prussia. The objective was to make cannon fodder for the Army, good factory workers, and a pliable underclass that could be led easily by the elite!

Remind me again where the rich and politicians send their children?

POLITICAL: Honesty, if Gooferment?

WSJ/NBC News Poll: Scandals Prompt Doubts About Honesty
Recent controversies surrounding the Internal Revenue Service and other government agencies have sown doubts about the honesty of the Obama administration, but most people don’t hold the president personally responsible for the agency actions, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

A majority of poll respondents, some 55%, said IRS scrutiny of conservative groups raised some level of doubt about the administration’s “overall honesty and integrity.”

*** end quote *** 


Why is it so low?

I’d have bet it would have been in the high 70’s.

Oh yeah, “low information voters”.
