not a war on kids...the only war is class war

Sticking kids in school trains them to be better workers and allows both parents to work...it's all about increasing productivity in the working class.

Ditto for the war on drugs....cheap labor via prison workers.

Read the book Brave New World

Read the book Brave New World and then watch this movie. The parallels are startling.

i.e Pharmaceuticals, conformity, group assignment etc...

[school] "...that is not

[school] "...that is not democracy."

What a buffoon. Public schools are the direct result of democracy.


The school district I attended attempted to stretch their boundary of control to personal property and even to summertime. They wanted to have a policy that the student was their responsibility even when under the supervision of their guardian. If your kid is witnessed by faculty to be smoking on your property in the summer, they would have some kind of consequences to face come school time. Needless to say the community quickly shot it down.

my favorite part---when John Taylor Gatto asks something

like, "what insanity has possessed us to leave our children with strangers for the greater part of every day?". I keep asking the same thing.

I saw this a couple months ago, but didn't post. Thanks!

Teachers - Public

Dozens of the degenerate people I went to school with became public teachers. I am absolutely shudder the thought of leaving a kid with them. These people were for the most vulgar unabashed adulters and booze hounds.

They were and are absolutely from the pit of hell. They can absolutely have no conception of what is right or wrong for the most part. This is mostly the problem...poor and despicable and apathetic leadership that weighs incorrectly on the impressionable youths.

I almost sickened to my stomach as I contemplate this. To this day when I come into contact with a public teacher I almost want to vomit.


Women have been convinced

Women have been convinced that a career is something to fulfill one's life and being a mother is empty and just a carnal act of reproduction to perpetuate the physical species. I am a male, and a career has never fulfilled my life, nor do I ever want one to. It's something I have to do to earn money to live in this retarded system. I hate it, and I wish it would stop. I am not lazy...I would much rather have my own property that isn't rented from the government and have my job be working on my own property growing food, raising food, maintaining it, and raising children.

It's not a war on kids

Kids are the spoils.. it's a war on parents. I'm not a parent, however, it's clearly a war on parental controls and taking them away.

Generational divide and conquer

They did it to us, too. I did not realize it then, being the innocent victim of brainwashing, but my schools peddled a socialist agenda and it led me to believe that my parents were old fashioned war mongers who just could not understand the way of the future... We got over our "differences" but it was not until I "woke up" that I began to understand what they were about, and by then they were both dead. Makes me very sad to think about the wisdom I was robbed of for not waking up sooner.

Me too

My Grange woke me up.

Joining the Grange was a fluke.. I went to one of their pancake breakfasts and couldn't eat all the food.. the guy who was bussing came by and asked if I was finished eating. When I said "yes", he said, "We have a rule here, you don't eat all your food you have to wash dishes." I said, "Fine, lead me to the sink." That shocked him, and the next thing I know, I ws invited to come to a meeting.

I was curious so I went. I find all these old farmers, mostly women in their 80's who are managing their farms, helping each other, and since I was busy trying to establishe what has become my FAILED aquaculture project, and found these Grangers a wealth of wisdom and help.

There were no young people.. I was 48 when I joined and the youngest. I saw how we were lied to and being CHEATED.

If you have a minute.. check out pg 6 of the legislation we passed http://www.californiagrange.org/news/pdf/2012winter_lores.pdf

Here's a link to the CA state Grange http://www.californiagrange.org/news/newsletters.html

Idaho has a Grange.. desperately needs young people

Very cool.

Nice work. I checked the list, closest one to me is a 2 hour drive, but I might give them a call anyway.
Sorry your aquaculture did not work out. We have had our share of failure too, but we knew we were "practicing" - the final system is slowly coming together.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Me too

I'm still trying to make it work which is why I'm not advocating it.. so far, it's a great theory.. but putting it WORK.. well.. It's working me.. but at least I can now repair pumps (which it's very dependent). You'ld make an excellent Granger.

Iv been saying this for so long

My school's bathroom was the only safe haven...up until Rat Lady became hall monitor. She would ask for hall passes all the time then would right some quotes from the history book, even while I was taking a piss in the toilet. She would walk into the men bathroom, bang on the stall I was using and asked if I "signed in" to use the bathroom. When I told her to get a real job she had me suspended for 2 days.

And the staff and students thought I was the bad guy for telling her that.

All i have to say is I in no way regret the Graffiti i left behind after I graduated. SCHOOL IS PRISON!

high school was fun (late 70's)

One of my teachers gave me a 'cancer pass' so I could have a cigarette in the bathroom - no one cared that we smoked in the bathroom as long as we didn't spill out into the hallways.
Just about every cut on Halloween - but showed up to school in costume. The homeroom teachers would ask if you wanted to be marked as 'present' or not - just about everyone said 'not' that way no cut cards would be sent home. Even a few teachers showed up in costume.
We did have a kind of 'guard' who sat at the front entrance,no uniform or gun - dressed like Super Fly, but he would let us go out to buy lunch elsewhere if we didn't like what was being served that day. But he'd remember if you didn't come back and that priviledge would never happen again for that person.
In my senior year we had eye tests. I thought that really weird because we had never had them before.

Class of '79 here

I would just say all things are relative. Compared to how other schools of the time were, and especially compared to schools today, you probably did have a good time. But how much truth might you have learned that you are only discovering now, and how much further ahead would that have put you in life? This is the real tragedy of public schooling, keeping young people stranded in perpetual "adolescence".

OT: you guys had great music growing up

I graduated in the mid 80's....some good music but nothing like the jams of the 70s.

Luckily my siblings are considerably older and schooled me on the greats.....even Disco was fun when you're with a hottie.

We had guards, too.

At lunch, we would go out and smoke cigarettes on the lawn. No one cared. You cup it and pretend you aren't smoking, the guards would pretend they didn't see you. One day "Prince" walked up as we were smoking a .... ahem.... hand rolled left handed cigarette in a bright pink strawberry flavored paper. He said "put that cigarette out" and we did. He walked away, we lit it back up. It was "fun" as far as a 4 year long party is fun, but there was NO education going on.

So I guess schools now have metal detectors? And armed guards? Seems like indoctrination to me - getting kids used to the heavy hand of the state.

That is why I am in Idaho.

When they announced they were putting metal detectors in my kids' schools, we decided it was time to leave.

My Schools Were Nothing Like This (1978-91)

No "security", no psychiatric treatment, kids could make out at the lockers, could come and go as they pleased (no one watching, no cameras), broken side door so the school wasn't even locked up at night (about ten years ago they finally fixed the door so it locked).

The only thing tyrannical was the Pledge Of Allegiance.

I liked going to school.

'69 on

me neither. I was basically a well behaved kid and the only intrusive things I remember are being sent to a speech therapist when I was missing my two front teeth, and scoliosis screening. In high school we had open campus, a smoking area, there were hooligans and 'burn outs' there was the occasional fight, but no stabbings or shootings!

and we all grew up...

as good little tax slaves (just like the generations before us) we graduated, went to college, became "productive" members of society

this paradox is confusing to me now....confusing, as in, why are things so dramatically different now?

what is the intent?
what is the reasoning?

prison indoctrination?

your thoughts, please...

Come To Think Of It, One Time We Had Flu Shots

I remember them lining us all up. I don't remember whether there was an opt-out. They may have been mandatory.

I went to speech therapy too, though I believe it was my parent's decision and not the school's

Luckily I missed out

on those Air Gun vaccinations, where they'd line kids up, using the same machine boom, boom, boom - down the line. Occasionally, I see someone has the circular scar from that.

We Got The Traditional Needle

But any way you slice it, it's scary to think the government--which operates on the bribery system--is sticking needles into the arms of children. A pharmaceutical company could easily bribe its own vaccination into the equation.

Michelle Bachmann used an issue of this sort against Rick Perry in one of the 2011 debates.

Interesting, thx for posting

I wonder if it addresses whether a parent's involvement (or lack thereof) in their children's lives determines whether a school becomes like those horrid places in that movie trailer.
