It started when I was getting my Bachelor of Science degree (B.S., appropriately enough) at Idaho State University.***Cross-posted at Liberty Pundits***
A tree whose root is an ACORN with what looks like SNAKES wriggling through it but bears NO FRUIT!
I refused to join the SNEA, the pre-NEA student organization that infests the Colleges of Education all across America.
None of my friends who were also in the Education Program refused to join; in fact, they thought me a fool for not doing so. I guess they didn’t see a problem with it. And if you glance at the rosy picture the SNEA painted on their section of the NEA website, I guess you would agree…if you’re blind and easily led.
There are enough “code words” in their polished statement to be used by WWII submarines. I felt that familiar pricking at the back of my skull that I’ve gotten as far back as I can remember whenever I’m confronted with a person or group that reeks of wretched. Since I knew the SNEA would be temporary and my inevitable goal was to graduate, I skipped that part and went right to the tenets of the NEA. It was, after all, where I would eventually be asked to join.
Then I understood the pricking.
From the NEA mission/vision/value statement, only minor changes from when I first read them in 1989:
Making "our" point for us...perfectly!
Our vision is a great public school for every student. (Private schools? Well scrooooooooo yeeooooooooo!)
Our mission is to advocate for education professionals (except you private school sell-outs!) and to unite our members and the nation to fulfill the promise of public education (See?) to prepare every student (Public School Student, of course!) to succeed in a diverse and interdependent world. (I thought it was all about the children…and actual subjects…yet first and foremost is to advocate for themselves and unite their members…hmmm…advocate and unite. That just screams “FOR THE CHILDREN!”)
Our Core Values
These principles guide our work and define our mission: (Oh goody! Maybe something about the kiddies and actually teaching them here! *crossed fingers*)
Equal Opportunity. We believe public (Screw you private!) education is the gateway to opportunity. All students have the human and civil right to a quality public education that develops their potential, independence, and character. (Uhhh…by “human and civil” do they mean unalienable? ‘Cause last time I checked, unalienable only guaranteed us the right to life, liberty, and the right to use said life and liberty to pursue whatever goals we choose. While they mention “students,” no mention of any work teaching them to actually read, write, or ‘rithmatic, the basis for all critical thinking. They done forgot, I guess…too busy on that “gateway to opportunity,” which I have no doubt will eventually be slammed shut behind the nameless “students” before they realize there’s no way out.)
A Just Society. (Oh buhruuuuuhther…here we go, social justice…Cue the screw.) We believe public education (Screw you private!) is vital to building respect for the worth, dignity, and equality of every individual in our diverse society. (Any actual teaching of actual subjects? Anywhere? Come on! We’re halfway through your mission/vision/value statement, and not a single mention of the job you’re ACTUALLY supposed to do!)
Democracy. We believe public education (Again? Sigh…Screw you private!) is the cornerstone of our republic. Public education provides individuals with the skills to be involved, informed, and engaged in our representative democracy. (News flash, oh public educator gods…how are we a democracy? What the hell is a Representative Democracy? It’s Representative Republic, idiots. And what would those skills be you’re supposed to be teaching? Can you get a non-drunk monkey to write this for you instead of the inbred retarded chimp on crack you’re using now? This kind of assholery is what you get when you forget that the cornerstone of our REPUBLIC is the CONSTITUTION.)
Partnership. We believe partnerships with parents, families, communities, and other stakeholders are essential to quality public education (Again? Scew you private schools!) and student success. (Would any of those “stakeholders” be reading, writing, or ‘rithmatic? How about critical thinking? The mathematical inevitabilities of patterns? Does that include NOT exempting yourselves from the laws of the land, specifically, the Constitution? Anyone? Oh that’s right…you’re all too busy cutting class, dumbin’ down the joint, and forging documents, the NEW life essentials all students must know.)
Professionalism. We believe that the expertise and judgment of education professionals are critical to student success. (Wow…and you thought doctors had a God complex! No wonder the Politically Castrated eunuch democrats in Wisconsin ran…those little girls feared the omniscient mighty smitey of a group who can’t even teach the proper use of the words “our” and “are!”) We maintain the highest professional standards, and we expect the status, compensation, and respect due all professionals. (The children? Subjects?…really? Still nothing? Let’s see, you maintain such high professional standards that you lie to doctors who forge fraudulent sick notes—something a child would get suspended if he did—run from your job—Screw you kids too…oh, and private schools—and align yourself with the dregs of humanity—unions, lawyers, need I say more? Teachers, as someone who knows you from the inside—and got the hell out of hell—may I suggest you seal the deal and head for Hell’s sewer asap? ‘Cause our sewers are full.)Toldja. Ah well, I had no intention of ever joining a union. When I was 19 I worked at a grocery store, and was forced to join and to surrender my dues every month…shudder! Slavery wasn’t my bag, baby.
Collective Action. We believe individuals are strengthened when they work together for the common good. (Apparently “common good” means running from your job like Nancy boys, hiding from the consequences of breaking the law, and getting doctors to lie on official documents. Is this the new healthcare?) As education professionals, we improve both our professional status (For the children, doncha know) and the quality of public education (Screw you private!) when we unite and advocate collectively. (Collective, advocate, unite, common good…that inbred monkey on crack wouldn’t happen to be affectionately named Marx or Lenin now, would he? Cause there’s enough communist in this manifesto to take down Georgia.)
But when I graduated, sure enough, there were the smiling “teachers,” encouraging me to sign up for the National Education Association.
The smiles froze, but didn’t diminish.
“But you want to teach, right?” the ugly one asked.
“Of course, I love teaching, and I’m damned good at it.”
“Then you have to join the NEA,” the uglier one said.
I was waiting for that one, and could barely contain my excitement!
“Oh no I don’t. Idaho passed the RIGHT TO WORK LAW in 1986 so I wouldn’t have to be strong-armed by Marxist-hippies like you. And I voted for it.”
For some reason, they got all offended, I think more from my voting comment than the whole Marxist-hippy thing. Then they got smug…I should have known the left hook was coming.
“State laws don’t apply to Education. We’re federal.”
I was so stunned I forgot which ugly hippy said it. They all look, and smell, alike anyway. I stammered back, “Education is local government, state, county, board, parent.”
Still with the frozen smiles. “Carter created the Department of Education in 1980. Federal supersedes state laws.”
I don’t remember leaving that cold day in 1991, but I was told I wandered the streets muttering “Carter…that soul-abortion screwed the future” or something like that.
Apparently, Right To Work really started gaining steam in the 1970’s, leaving the NEA shaking in their Birkenstocks, so naturally, they decided to use manipulation, force, and “It’s for the freakin’ children!” deceptions on the worst President in American history, easily recognized by his phony teeth and tiny peanuts. They marched, pouted, threw fits, misspelled, mispronounced, misspoke, and missed the entire purpose and point of Education in the land of the free. Their well-honed commie tactics were in full, pathetic swing, and we brought forth our first-born deformed bastard Department of Education in May, 1980.
Carter fell into line without pause or reason…like in Venezuela…and Iran…and North Korea…and even make-believe non-existent places like Palestine…and every other Politically Castrated Islammunist loser group on earth Carter can’t slobber over fast enough. He made us proud…that he was thoroughly trounced by Reagan less than 6 months later.
The Garden of Reagan years did their best, but Wikipedia points out the fly in the ointment this way:
President Ronald Reagan promised during the 1980 presidential election to eliminate the Department of Education as a cabinet post, but he was not able to do so with a Democratic House of Representatives. In the 1982 State of the Union Address, he pledged:
“The budget plan I submit to you on Feb. 8 will realize major savings by dismantling the Department of Education.”Sigh. Foiled by the same impotent cowards, spoiled brats really, the kids no one can stand who always take their vote and go home when they can’t make it on merit. Yup, like Carter, they make us proud…that they were thoroughly shellacked in November. Looks like they could use another coat.
Throughout the 1980s, the abolition of the Department of Education was a part of the Republican Party platform, but the administration of President George H. W. Bush declined to implement this idea.
So I chose not to teach. I hadn’t really enjoyed school anyway since realizing Education was just a word used by the NEA, and besides, my first child had been born, and I knew what real teaching was all about. I grew to despise Education the more I got into it and realized that I was being taught straight from the BIG RED BOOK OF COMMIE FAIRY TALES, and my grades reflected it. And for the first time in my life I didn’t even care, especially after taking my certification exam which had 1 question about the Founding Fathers and the Constitution but 12 about Jesse Jackson, the Black Power movement, and Cesar Chavez. After seeing Education from the inside, I knew then and there it was more important than ever to be home and teach him right…and undo the crap-covered lessons he would be force-fed on a daily basis. Besides, there was no way I was going to face the Judgment Bar with my name signed to a document that reeked of a secret combination’s blood oath.
And according to Charlotte Iserbyt, who was Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education during the first Reagan Administration, where she first blew the whistle on a major technology initiative which would control curriculum in America's classrooms, that secret combination now includes the largest standing army on earth and our enemy that was, and is not, yet is:
“The merger between the United States and Communist China is disturbing, especially since it will continue and reinforce the use in our schools of the Pavlov method (imported from Soviet Union) aka Direct Instruction, Mastery Learning, Outcomes/Performance/Results-based Education. This method is necessary for global work force training (school-to-work) and brainwashing for a politically correct society. It has been used successfully in China since the revolution in 1948… We are in big trouble when the United States is "educationally" in bed with Russia and China, countries which rely on this method to "train" and "brainwash" their citizens and students. The United States has also implemented the method under the labels "direct instruction, mastery learning, and OBE", but, unfortunately, most Americans, even conservative American education researchers, do not understand that the "direct instruction" method is based on Pavlovian/Skinnerian operant conditioning, so there has been no effort made to remove this rat training method from the repertoire of teacher training…”
As I watch the Politically Castrated commies in Wisconsin, behaving like they just swung in out of the damned jungle, supported by elected officials who work FOR THE PEOPLE flipping the bird to their bosses and running away like every historical coward we mock to this day, lying, defrauding, and behaving like the most despicable despots their commie tactics support and worship, I felt the chill of a new dawn, bathed in the glow of that movie my Class of 1984 generation loves to this day. I know what I am seeing, what it portends, and why it is wrong. It isn’t cute, it isn’t noble, it isn’t even legal, and not one of them had the nads to answer questions or even behave like adult human beings. The example in appalling detail played out before us when Wisconsin teachers’ union head Mike Langyel, who followed the standard tactics of all liars/manipulators/deceivers: stall, distract, divert, evade, deny, lie, attack… anything to get away from truth and into the field of emotional fagatronics that all Politically Castrated Islammunists use with the reckless abandon of a horny teenager with access to the internet and no parental guidance, or responsibility, in sight.
I see this poisonous red tide for what it is, and intend to do to now what I did in 1991. I will reject it, stand firmly against it, and never submit, for this is MY country, and it is noble, good, and right. This invasion stops now, and our freedom brought back from the depths we shamefully subjugated it to in exchange for not having to pay attention to the psychotic destruction of the land our founders entrusted to us, and the vigilance we abandoned so we could do stuff and buy things.
We are nothing like Egypt, Tunisia, or any ISLAMMUNIST country on earth. We are America, we are free, and we will rise!
I have no intention of surrendering. I have no intention of pretending. I have no intention of losing. I intend to stand with Gov. Walker and demand every one of you who violated the law be fired, arrested, and tried, Reagan-style, for your sedition, un-Godly arrogance, and law-breaking. Parents of Wisconsin, do you see this? Are these criminal loserly cretins who you want teaching your children…teaching them what? To break the law, to lie, to defraud, to do anything so long as they get what they want and then tell Megyn Kelly it isn’t what it is?
Is this hippy fagatronic behavior OK with you?
Why not fire the teachers and find private home schools for your kids, little log cabin schoolhouses, maybe taking turns teaching kids yourselves? That method spawned the greatest minds in our history, and besides, could you really do worse than these slack-jawed ISLAMMUNIST criminals who see your children as “human capital?” Then we could do what Reagan wanted to do: dismantle the disastrous Dept. of Ed and send it to the four corners of the world. This time it really will be for the children, who will only have one word to spell right at our rally:
Keep the faith, bros, in all things courage, and no substitute for VICTORY!
