Compulsory Education by Self Incrimination

School administrators and teachers in Batavia, Illinois apparently think it is perfectly OK to require students at the local high school to possibly incriminate themselves by answering in writing, with their names printed at the top, a list of survey questions about, among other things, their private emotions together with their use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs during their free time.

In short, these statist compulsory education government goons are systematically violating the federal constitutional rights of students by asking them to reveal private, personal and potentially incriminating information which is none of the school district’s god damned business.

District Superintendent, Jack Barshinger justifies the practice by claiming it is supported by local teachers as a way to stem an increase in student suicides, since many of them reported not being able to tell when a student was having emotional problems.

He insists that the information would not be shared with the police; the answers would be reviewed by social workers, school counselors and psychologists. “We can’t help them if we aren’t aware of their needs,” said Barshinger.

But the proper mission of a public school district, which compels children and parents by law to participate in the system, is to provide its young students with a basic education, not to snoop around into their intimate private emotions and invade their personal privacy by violating their First and Fifth Amendment rights.

John Dryden, a social studies instructor at the school, seeing the situation for what it was, took it upon himself to do the right thing by advising students of their right not to incriminate themselves before giving them the survey questions list which had each student’s name printed on it.  “I made a judgment call,” he explained. “There was no time to ask anyone.”

This is one teacher who really was looking out for his kids.

But for that he now faces disciplinary action and a black mark in his employment record from the school district which thinks that the children under its jurisdiction have no constitutional rights or that even if they do, such rights may be violated with impunity.  

So advising children of their constitutional rights is not considered part of the learning experience in school districts practicing compulsory education by self incrimination.

All the President’s Liars

Lying and outright perjury, which is lying while under oath during a judicial or official legislative proceeding, are so commonplace within the highest levels of the United States federal government executive branch today that the Average American hardly takes notice, much less demands that anything be done about it.

The Department of State, Department of Justice, and Department of Treasury, three of the most important cabinet level departments of President Obama’s administration, for example, are riddled with liars and perjurers from the top down.

Let’s start with the State Department formerly headed by Secretary of State, Hillary R. Clinton.

She, in concert with her subordinates, and even the President himself, brazenly lied and then later committed perjury in her sworn testimony before Congress concerning the nature of her involvement in and responsibility for the now infamous Benghazi Libya scandal resulting in the death of American Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans during the September 11, 2012 Islamist terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate compound.

The evidence is now crystal clear that Hillary Clinton and her State Department underlings were culpable for the fact that they failed to heed repeated security warnings about the likelihood of potential terrorist attacks on the compound, failed to provide sufficient protection to our Ambassador and embassy personnel even though they were begging for it again and again, and then attempted to cover up their fatal culpability by lying and committing perjury.

Secretary of State Clinton and her subordinates knew from the beginning according to this evidence that the attack was a planned and orchestrated an Al Qaeda inspired radical Islamist group terrorist attack.

Yet she presided, with her staff and the President, over a deliberate cover-up of this fact by lying over and over, claiming that it was a spontaneous demonstration over an anti-Islamic video produced by an obscure American cleric; claiming that she wasn't aware of any security threats, or any need to provide more protections to embassy personnel.

All of these lies were deliberately concocted and disseminated for the purpose of covering her own negligent and culpable ass and minimizing any potential damage to Obama’s chances for reelection to a second term in the White House. After all, President Obama was campaigning upon the premise that Al Qaeda had been defeated and was on the run. The truth wouldn't have made him look good.

After all of that, Clinton had the audacity to testify before a Congressional committee that none of this negligent and culpable conduct, none of her brazen lies, made the slightest bit of difference as to what happened to the four dead Americans in Benghazi.

And the majority of Americans either believe she is right or simply don’t care about it one way or another. Clinton will most likely be the Democratic Party nominee for the next President of the United States.

Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice has been caught red handed violating the First Amendment constitutional rights of the Associated Press (AP) and its reporters by secretly obtaining their telephone records illegally without their knowledge or consent while attempting to catch a government leaker of classified information to the press.

Holder testified before Congress that he knows nothing about such matters; that he recused himself from that decision, leaving it to his deputy; and that he personally would not engage in such conduct. "With regard to the potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, that is not something I've ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy," he swore under oath.

But just one week after the AP revelations we learned that Holder personally authorized the same kind of secret warrant to seize the telephone and email records of Fox News reporter James Rosen in an identical type of case.

Rosen reported in June of 2009 on leaked government classified secret information obtained from a confidential source that North Korea might respond to UN sanctions with more nuclear tests. FBI investigators ultimately determined that State Department security adviser Stephen Jin-Woo Kim was the leaker.

Note that it is not a crime under U.S. law for journalists to solicit from confidential sources and then report classified information. It’s their job and such reporting is protected by freedom of the press provisions of the First Amendment.

But the FBI and Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department wanted to prove their case against Kim in part by secretly seizing the telephone and private email records of reporter Rosen, something which is not permissible under the law unless there was probable cause to believe that Rosen was committing a crime under a wartime law known as the Espionage Act.

So in order to get around that impediment they concocted a search warrant and a deliberately false affidavit for support which specifically alleged that there was in fact probable cause to believe that reporter Rosen had committed a crime; “at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator,” when they knew full well that the allegation was a bald faced lie.

Attorney General Eric Holder authorized that false affidavit knowing that it was false.
On the basis of that false affidavit; that brazen lie; that perjury under oath; a federal magistrate allowed Holder and his DOJ to secretly seize Rosen’s private telephone records and read his private emails in total violation of his federal constitutional rights under the First Amendment.

Holder lied about that to Congress while he was under oath. Once again he committed perjury.

This man, the highest law enforcement official in the land,  is a liar and a perjurer. He should by all rights be occupying a prison cell. Instead he is still the Attorney General of the United States and the average American could care less about it.

Finally, we have the Treasury Department of the United States and its Gestapo pitbull unit known as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). It has admitted recently that certain unnamed operatives deliberately targeted for political purposes conservative groups seeking tax exempt status under 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code for harassment and delay tactics.

Recall that President Obama's 2008 campaign was demanding the Justice Department criminally prosecute conservative groups with tax-exempt status. Then, last year his re-election campaign targeted private citizens who had donated to Romney groups. So, there isn’t much room for doubt here that President Obama himself is behind this latest scandal. His underlings were just doing what he has been calling for all along.

Several IRS top dogs, including the former director, have already testified under oath before Congress that they know nothing about it and had nothing to do with it.

More lies; more perjury. It never ends.

Finally, Lois Lerner, the IRS director of Exempt Organizations, came before Congress under a subpoena with an opening statement declaring that she herself had done absolutely nothing wrong: “I’m innocent,” she swore, “I’ve done nothing wrong.” “I've committed no crime.”

But then she asserted her Fifth Amendment right against self incrimination and refused to answer a single question from the congressmen on the committee.

“I’m innocent but I’m not going to answer your questions,” she said. Yet this lady had just waived her Fifth Amendment rights; she waived her right to remain silent only moments before when she swore under oath that she had done nothing wrong.

The chairman of the committee was within his authority right then and there to hold her in contempt of Congress and order the marshal to take her straight to the Congressional jail if she continued to remain silent.

She can’t have her cake and eat it too. She can't commit perjury and then refuse to answer questions about her testimony under oath. But that’s exactly what she has so far been permitted to do by our gutless Congress.

They're not going to do much either about all the President’s liars.

Military Rapists Skate Free Leaving Taxpayers Hooked

What would you think if a Vietnam veteran could get military disability benefits courtesy of the American taxpayers in an amount exceeding $3,000 per month plus full medical treatment as the result of an ordinary “crime” allegedly committed against him or her 45 years ago by a fellow soldier; a “crime” which was never reported and for which there is presently not a single shred of evidence that it actually occurred?
What would you think if a soldier who actually committed such a “crime” was made to pay no penalty whatsoever for it – no criminal or civil penalty – is not even identified, investigated, and is allowed to remain anonymous, skating totally free while you and I are stuck with paying as much as $500,000 in lifetime benefits to the “victim.”?
Only in America could this happen – that’s what I would think.
If several lawmakers in Congress have their way that is exactly what will happen and the so-called “victims” will not have to produce any evidence that a “crime,” i.e. a sexual assault, ever occurred; all that’s necessary will be their word.
They’ll be able to walk into a VA office, claim they were raped years ago while in the service, that they’re suffering a disability because of it, present no evidence of the “crime,” cash in their chips, and walk out the door with their certified permission slip for lifetime benefits at taxpayer expense. The actual criminal wrongdoer need not even be named.
More than 85,000 veterans from as far back as Vietnam, up to 40% of them men, were treated last year alone for alleged injuries or illness stemming from often unreported sexual abuse in the military long after they have left the service; and 4,000 have sought disability benefits, a statistic which has roiled the Pentagon and been condemned by President Obama as "shameful and disgraceful."
Yes, it’s shameful and disgraceful alright – shameful and disgraceful that the rapists will skate free while the American taxpayers are stuck with the bill.
Sexual assault or repeated sexual harassment can trigger a variety of health problems, primarily post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, a condition the VA calls "military sexual trauma."
Of course I sympathize with anyone who has been raped and suffers damage. That’s why I have to wonder: why should military victims of rape, (which really has nothing to do with their military service), qualify for free health care and lifetime disability benefits but not ordinary citizen victims of rape?
Former soldier, Ruth Moore of Milbridge, Maine, began receiving treatment from a VA counseling center in 2003 -- 16 years after she was raped twice while she was stationed in Europe with the Navy. She continues to get counseling at least monthly for PTSD linked to the attacks and is also considered fully disabled.
"We can't cure me, but we can work on stability in my life and work on issues as they arrive," Moore said. She estimates the government's cost for her disability benefits and treatment could well exceed $500,000 over the course of her lifetime.
With all due respect to Ms. Moore, and I do absolutely sympathize with what happened to her, why is she still considered disabled 26 long years after she was sexually assaulted? Why can’t she work? Had it happened to her as an ordinary citizen she’d not be qualified for any benefits. She’d have to work for a living just like all the other victims of sexual assault crimes in America.
VA officials stress that any veteran who claims to have suffered military sexual trauma has access to free health care. "It really is the case that a veteran can simply walk through the door, say they've had this experience, and we will get them hooked up with care. There's no documentation required. They don't need to have reported it at the time," said Dr. Margret Bell, a member of the VA's military sexual trauma team.
Presently, documentation is required before a vet is entitled to disability benefits, but some veterans groups and congressional lawmakers support legislation designed to make it far easier for veterans to get a monthly disability payment.
They support allowing a veteran's statement alone to serve as the proof that an assault or harassment occurred. A veteran with a 100 percent rating and a spouse and child to support would get nearly $3,088 a month.
Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, and Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., are the lead sponsors of the legislation that would allow the veteran's word to serve as sufficient proof that an assault occurred. The legislation is named after Moore, who spent years fighting for disability benefits.
Right now, the burden of proof is stacked against sexual trauma survivors," said Anu Bhagwati, executive director of the Service Women's Action Network. "Ninety percent of 26,000 cases last year weren't even reported. So where is that evidence supposed to come from?"
Why were such cases not reported? Why should any claimant be allowed taxpayer funded disability benefits without having to prove their case? And why isn’t the rapist responsible at least to some degree? Why aren’t they punished? Why are the taxpayers punished?
The VA originally opposed Pingree's bill, saying the legislation didn't allow for the minimal evidence "needed to maintain the integrity of the claims process." But VA spokesman Josh Taylor now says that there's been a change of heart; the VA no longer opposes it.
"VA supports the goals of the legislation, and will continue to work with Congress on the best approach to accomplish it," Taylor said.
What do they care about issues of proof and minimal evidence to maintain the integrity of the claims process? There is no longer any such thing as integrity in the United States government. It’s not their money which will be used to pay the huge number of claims. It’s only taxpayer money. It’s a giant giveaway program just like all the other programs.
So the military rapists – the real wrongdoers in these cases -- will continue to skate free leaving us hapless taxpayers hooked.

Pope and State: No Separation

Pope Francis, the brand new Pontiff of the billion plus worldwide congregation of the Catholic Church, said last week in an urgent call for reform that politicians need to be bold in tackling the root causes of the current economic crisis.
He declared that the root causes of the economic crisis lay in acceptance of money's power over society, decrying what he deems as unbridled capitalism and the "cult of money" while calling for ethical reform of the financial system to create a more humane society.
"We have created new idols," he insisted during a speech in the Vatican. "The worship of the golden calf of old has found a new and heartless image in the cult of money and the dictatorship of an economy which is faceless and lacking any truly humane goal."
Unchecked capitalism, said the Pope, has lead to the growing inequality in society and is caused by "ideologies which uphold the absolute autonomy of markets and financial speculation, and thus deny the right of control to States, which are themselves charged with providing for the common good… A new, invisible and at times virtual, tyranny is established; one which unilaterally and irremediably imposes its own laws and rules."
Ethics are too often dismissed as a nuisance, he continued: "There is a need for financial reform along ethical lines that would produce in its turn an economic reform to benefit everyone… Money has to serve, not to rule."
Now, from what I’ve seen and read about Pope Frances, it appears that he is a very nice and generous man, a good priest and a devoted leader of his Church. The humble Cardinal from Buenos Aires Argentina has made the rejection of riches and luxury a major focus of his priesthood and now his two-month long pontificate.
In keeping with that mission, he has recently spoken of his desire for a "poor church." Of course, right now his Church is awash in money and riches and has been for centuries. If he wants to give it all away, more power to him. He has every right to say and do whatever he wants about his religion and his economic philosophy. After all, he is the Pope.
But when he starts calling upon politicians and secular governments to bring about the reform of the entire global economic system in accordance with that philosophy – rejecting free markets, capitalism and the power of money – he is entering the forbidden realm of politics, at least as it is practiced here in the United States of America, where the First Amendment Establishment Clause of the Constitution prohibits the merging between Church and State.
When he declares that the creation of wealth should be entirely under control of the State he is no longer just a humble priest shepherding his flock. He’s become a politician using his high religious status and pontifical office seeking to influence the secular business of government.
Perhaps then it is time that the Catholic Church in America started paying its fair share of taxes now that its leader has become a political force and desires to meddle into the affairs of our secular government. That’s how churches and religious organizations should be dealt with in America when they cross that forbidden boundary line between Church and State.
He should be tending to the souls of his congregation and their spiritual needs; preparing them for the promised afterlife; and getting them ready to meet their maker, which, of course, was the mission of Jesus Christ – not interfering with economic matters in the real world of the here and now. His vocation is to fulfill the former, not to dabble into the latter. Jesus didn’t mess with politics.
With all due respect to Pope Francis, his philosophy regarding money sounds like a typical socialist/communist rant demanding a worldwide redistribution of wealth from the have’s to the have not’s; the producers to the takers; the hard working to the lazy; and the ambitious to the complacent.
It doesn’t work and history has demonstrated again and again that it doesn’t work. He simply doesn’t know squat about free markets, money or how wealth is created. Why should he? He’s a priest; a man of God; a wealth taker; not a producer of wealth.
Without money, free markets and capitalism, there would be no wealth in this world. Human beings would have to live like the rest of the animals, digging around in the dirt for roots and tubers, while enduring similar nasty and brutish lives. It is money, individual liberty and free markets which has civilized men. But few priests would understand that because they are not in the business of creating wealth, but only taking it.
So his “heartless cult of money and worship of golden calves” nonsense is just a bag of socialist rubbish. He should separate his religious office from secular politics before he finds himself in the wrong place and does something to his Church that he will later regret.
My advice to Pope Francis: Pope and State: Separate!

Bill of Rights Trashed by “Justice”

The Attorney General of the United States is the highest ranking federal government attorney in the nation. He’s an executive branch presidential cabinet level official who heads the Department of Justice.
If any attorney at law should be familiar with the provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights it is certainly the Attorney General, who, just like every attorney in America, has sworn a solemn oath to preserve, protect, defend and uphold that supreme law of the land.

You might think that the head of Justice would observe justice. But if you thought that in the case of current Attorney General Eric Holder, and his Justice Department, you would be wrong. This man and his underlings display a nasty habit of trashing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as a matter of course.
The latest scandal in this regard is the disclosure by the Associated Press News Agency (AP) that the Justice Department, in an “unprecedented intrusion,” secretly and without  a court warrant, seized two months worth of outgoing call telephone records for the work and personal phone numbers of AP reporters and various AP offices, altogether records of more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012.
This conduct on the part of “Justice” violates both the First Amendment, which supposedly guarantees freedom of the press, and the Fourth Amendment, which supposedly prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures by the government without a warrant and probable cause.  
The telephone records included the main AP number in the House of Representatives press gallery, which has members of Congress and the Senate up in arms.
“The burden is always on the government when they go after private information -- especially information regarding the press or its confidential sources. I want to know more about this case, but on the face of it, I am concerned that the government may not have met that burden,” declared Democrat Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy.
"I am deeply concerned by numerous reports of misconduct by the [Obama] administration, from (whistle-blower) testimony regarding Benghazi to the Internal Revenue Service targeting groups based on political ideology and now the Department of Justice monitoring journalists with the Associated Press,” said House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy.
He should be concerned.
This administration, from the Department of Justice, Department of State, IRS and right on down the line, has proved to be a collection of liars, perjurers, criminals and serial violators of the Constitution – the same Constitution they all have sworn an oath to preserve, protect and defend.
In a letter of protest sent to Holder, AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt said the government sought and obtained information far beyond anything that could be justified by any specific investigation.
"There can be no possible justification for such an over-broad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters. These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the news gathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP's news gathering operations and disclose information about AP's activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know," Pruitt said.
Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole responded to Pruitt in a letter attempting to justify the seizures by claiming the Department was conducting a criminal investigation into government employee unauthorized disclosures of classified information to certain AP reporters, and therefore what it did was necessary.
Clearly however, if a crime was committed in this case, it was committed by a governmental employee disclosing classified information – not AP reporters who have the constitutional right to report the news.
Thus, there was no justification to seize AP telephone records in a situation where there existed no probable cause whatsoever to believe that anyone at AP committed a crime.
This egregious conduct on the part of the D.O.J. amounted to clear violations of AP and its individual reporters and editors First and Fourth Amendment constitutional rights.
Eric Holder and his underlings are the criminals here; they’re the ones who have perverted “Justice” should face justice.
But instead of taking responsibility and his rightful punishment as a man, Holder lashed out at House Republican Rep. Darrell Issa at a congressional hearing on Wednesday, characterizing the congressman’s questioning of his Departments conduct as "shameful," after Issa accused him of purposely and repeatedly keeping information from Congress.
This came after Holder repeatedly rebuffed all pertinent questions by claiming he wasn’t involved in the decision-making process. He maintained that he had nothing to do with it and had no explanation for it. He claimed that he had recused himself from the case because "I am a possessor of information eventually leaked."
Now, that’s a neat trick.
If a government official doesn’t feel like answering questions under oath about violations of the constitution and his oath of office, just recuse himself from the problem.   
He also said he was unable to answer any questions on why the department he oversees failed to negotiate with the AP prior to obtaining subpoenas -- something which is standard practice in these cases.
Then Holder testified that all the decisions made in the case fell on Deputy Attorney General James Cole’s shoulders.
But Cole would be prohibited from discussing any ongoing case so his testimony would be the same as Holder’s – worthless; another neat trick.
"There doesn't appear to be any acceptance of responsibility for things that have gone wrong," said congressman Sensenbrenner in the classic understatement of the century.
The top United States administrator of Justice says he knows nothing while the Bill of Rights is trashed by his “Justice.”

Stomping the First Amendment: When the Shoe’s on the Other Foot

Lawmakers in the state of Mississippi House and Senate have passed versions of a bill dubbed the Schoolchildren's Religious Liberties Act, which supposedly would guarantee religious freedom in Mississippi public schools by ensuring that students can talk about spiritual beliefs and aren't deprived of their rights.

Actually this is just another attempt at putting government sponsored prayer back in the public school classrooms. It’s an end run around the First Amendment Establishment Clause because it would once again unite church and state by legalizing school prayer, a government practice that the United States Supreme Court has held as unconstitutional since the 1940’s.
The bills also declare that school events such as graduations and football games, as well as morning public address announcements, are "limited public forums" in which sectarian prayers would be allowed. That would violate Supreme Court precedent as well which has established that graduation ceremonies, football games and public announcements at school my not involve prayers.
"People ask me if this is a step toward getting prayer back in schools. I think this is THE step to get prayer back in schools," declared religiously oriented Mississippi radio commentator, Paul Ott, an ardent supporter of the new law.
But the ACLU of Mississippi has noted the obvious – this law would force a captive audience of students to listen to someone else's religious expression, a practice which has lead federal judges to strike down a previous Mississippi law allowing student-led prayer. "The courts have never said it's OK to hold a captive audience," it says.
Sam Bounds, current head of the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents, admits that he allowed student-led prayer when he was superintendent in Brookhaven Mississippi. He, just like many other government statists have no qualms about stomping on the First Amendment when it comes to sponsoring their own religion in the public schools. "I'm a good Southern Baptist," he said.
The fact is that organized school prayer still remains widespread in the state of Mississippi, despite opponents' efforts to curtail it. The Mississippi public school authorities routinely stomp on the Establishment Clause while thumbing their noses at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Supporter Ott explained that he believes schools have seen more bad behavior, harassment, bullying and even school shootings because of prayer's exclusion. "Let's get God back in the schools some way," he insisted. "We've been praying in schools for 200 years. Why should we stop?"
Why indeed!
But what do the public school religious proselytizers’ think when the stomping shoe is on the other foot?
They scream bloody hell, that’s what.
It’s OK for them to force their religion on captive audiences at public schools, but all of a sudden, when a government statist hack starts stomping on their religion in a captive audience situation, they just love the First Amendment and its Establishment Clause. They want it enforced.
At Florida Atlantic University a professor of an Intercultural Communications class told the students to write the name “Jesus” on a sheet of paper. Then, they were told to put the paper on the floor.
“He had us all stand up and he said ‘Stomp on it,” said Ryan Rotela, a devout Morman student in the class. “I’m not going to be sitting in a class having my religious rights desecrated,” he explained. “I truly see this as I’m being punished… I picked up the paper from the floor and put it right back on the table.”
The student told the professor that his assignment was insulting and offensive. “I said to the professor, ‘With all due respect to your authority as a professor, I do not believe what you told us to do was appropriate,’” Rotela continued. “I believe it was unprofessional and I was deeply offended by what you told me to do.”
But when he took his concerns to a supervisor, he was promptly suspended from the class.
The university, meanwhile, is defending the assignment as a lesson in debate. “As with any academic lesson, the exercise was meant to encourage students to view issues from many perspectives, in direct relation with the course objectives,” said Noemi Marin, the university’s director of the school of communication and multimedia studies.
“While at times the topics discussed may be sensitive, a university environment is a venue for such dialogue and debate,” she added.
So religious statists aren’t the only ones who violate the First Amendment; non-religious statists have no compunctions about doing it too.
Stomping the First Amendment -- it’s OK with statists of every stripe until the shoe is on the other foot.

Elementary Pencil Warrior Terrorists

Zero tolerance attitudes are running amok today in the nation’s compulsory public elementary schools. Public school teachers and administrators show zero tolerance for the constitutional rights of the children and parents who are forced to participate in the compulsory education system.  
Compulsory public school education laws violate First Amendment freedom of speech and freedom of association rights as well as Fifth Amendment deprivation of liberty without due process rights. Kids and parents are forced to participate whether they like it or not and in the process are subjected to zero tolerance for any thinking or behavior outside the prescribed standards of statist conformity. 
If compulsory education laws are constitutional then there are absolutely no limits to what the government authority can mandate in violation of the liberty and constitutional rights of every citizen, adult and child alike. If the statists can force children to go to school and subject them to zero tolerance standards then they can force anyone to do or think anything. 
In the wake of a few horrific school shootings the statist government authorities think they have the right to take out their frustrations upon the innocent little children in their classrooms who had nothing whatsoever to do with the crimes. They actually believe that they can prohibit what a child thinks about just because a few whacko’s committed actual violence at a school.  
But the children are the victims – not the perpetrators. The whacko’s who committed the crimes need to be punished, not the little kids who should have the right to be and act like little kids. There should be zero tolerance for the criminals, not their targets. This zero tolerance then is upside down; it’s nonsense; it’s farcical.  
Of course it’s OK not to allow real weapons at school but American kids all over the country are being punished at school today just for being kids. One kid was punished for biting his pop tart into the shape of a gun. Another was punished for talking about shooting an imaginary bubble gun. Others were punished for drawing pictures of guns, making noises like guns, and pointing their fingers like guns.  
In short, all these kids were punished for their thoughts – not any conduct which could possibly be deemed a danger to anyone under any circumstances. They are forced to attend school and while there are punished for their thoughts by overzealous teachers and administrators who believe they have the right to control other people’s minds.
 The latest innocent child victims of zero tolerance attitudes are two Suffolk Virginia 7-year-old second grade boys punished for the “crime” of just being little children thinking about playing soldier and bad guy with guns. These are boys who otherwise get good grades and have no history of being disruptive in class.  But they had the temerity to make shooting noises while pointing pencils at each other.
This “crime” of playacting supposedly violated the Suffolk school system’s zero-tolerance policy on weapons. To a government statist a pencil is benign when being used to write something on a piece of paper but becomes a dangerous weapon when a 7-year-old points it and says “pow.”  
“Well I was being a Marine and the other guy was being a bad guy,” one of the boys explained to his dad, a former Marine. For that the Driver Elementary School statists suspended them for two days, even though the boys stopped playing when a teacher told them to stop.  
A pencil is considered a weapon when it’s pointed at someone in a threatening way and gun noises are made, said a school district spokesman. “Some children would consider it threatening, who are scared about shootings in schools or shootings in the community,” he deadpanned.  “Kids don’t think about ‘Cowboys and Indians’ anymore, they think about drive-by shootings and murders and everything they see on television news every day.” 
So you see, these boys were punished for a thought “crime” and the government statists have no problem admitting it. After all, they actually believe they can do this kind of thing to kids and get away with it. This guy also admitted that drawing a picture of a gun or pointing a finger in a threatening manner are also considered “crimes.” 
“It’s an effort to try to get kids not to bring any form of violence, even if it’s violent play, into the classroom,” he continued. “There has to be a consequence because it’s a rule.”
It’s zero tolerance against kids being kids. And it’s one more unbelievable example of how the citizens of the United States of America are far less free today than at any other time in history.  
This is the new imaginary war on elementary pencil warrior terrorists.

Political Demigod Parasites

When throughout all of world history the great masses of human populations aren’t worshipping Gods they tend to be worshipping demigods or often both. Most people have been deceived in consciousness with a necessity to worship religious and political leaders – Authority!

This systematic process of deception in consciousness allows the worshipped authorities and those who invoke them even after their deaths to become human parasites making their livings by sucking the juices and valuables – sacrifices -- from the lives of the deceived faithful.
In short, the human religious or political parasites create and promote imaginary Gods and demigods for the purpose of deceiving the individual consciousness of the masses into worshipping them and making voluntary sacrifices which the human parasites consume. In Biblical times the priests enjoyed the exclusive right to consume the sacrifices.
The power of the God or demigod depends upon the magnitude and intensity of the underlying belief among the deceived faithful. So, some of them, with the assistance of their human parasite followers have perpetuated their power and authority for years, centuries, and even millennia.
Last month, for one out of many examples, we learned that the embalmed body of recently departed and newly minted demigod, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, will rest in a glass case on public display in that country supposedly forever, according to his deputy (human parasite), Nicolas Maduro.
Chavez was a brutal communist dictator and criminal thug who generally made the lives of the people of Venezuela far worse under his regime than before his rise to the status of demigod. Yet instead of cursing and reviling this thieving human parasite, his surviving coalition of fellow human parasites are installing him has a revered demigod to be worshipped forever. They intend to perpetuate his power for as long as they can for their own political benefit.
The human benefactors of many other communist criminal demigods have seen fit to embalm and enshrine to this day their remains in glass coffins to be revered and worshipped by the deceived masses, even though it has become clear now that they were all criminals who destroyed their own nations.
These include Russia's first communist leader, Vladimir Lenin, whose body still lies on permanent display in a mausoleum in Moscow's Red Square nearly 90 years after his death; Josef Stalin, the Soviet communist butcher of Russia; China's communist value destroyer and murderer, Mao Zedong, Vietnam's mass murderer, Ho Chi Min, and North Korea's founding communist dictator and murderer, dear leader, Kim Il Sung.
Apparently, Russian Orthodox Christians believe that the body of a true saint does not decay. So they’re fine with putting these godless communist demigods on display in perpetuity even though they tried to wipe out the last vestiges of theism and Christianity in the Soviet Union.
The ancient Egyptian Pharaohs were perhaps the first demigods to be embalmed after death for the purpose of preserving their remains forever and thereby ensuring their successful passing into the imaginary afterlife where they supposedly would become Gods and continue to wield power over their deceived subjects.
Even today, the tomb of King Tut and the monumental stone pyramids at Giza remind us of how the ancient benefactors of human parasite demigods took advantage of the deception in the consciousness of the people to perpetuate their own power and Authority!
All the kings, emperors, sultans, emirs and satraps in history have done exactly the same.
Human parasite politicians of the United States government have been doing it for many decades now. Several U.S. presidents have been elevated to the status of demigod and are now worshipped in temples dedicated to their memory in Washington D.C. and elsewhere. Their faces have been carved into massive monuments at Mt. Rushmore, and special elaborate tombs for their remains have been erected in places like Arlington cemetery.  
All of this is done to perpetuate the deception of the validity of government Authority in the consciousness of the American people. The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, Presidents Day, Uncle Sam, and One Nation Under God are all part of the magnificent deception constantly promoted by our own United States of America political demigod parasites.

Forced Allegiance

You can’t force someone to love you. You can’t force someone to be your friend.

Respect and allegiance are not generated in the human heart by force.
Love, friendship, respect, trust and allegiance must be earned.
When force or coercion is applied to those objectives the result is often exactly the opposite of that intended.  
That’s why I find it particularly disgusting and offensive when statist government agents of the United States of America take it upon themselves to force little children in compulsory education public schools to stand and recite in unison on a daily basis the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.  
Of course, federal law and several Supreme Court decisions provide that students may not be compelled to recite the pledge but that is of little value when peer and social pressure is employed by the trampling school house mob to coerce compliance and conformance from everyone upon penalty of ostracize.
A lone child refusing to stand and recite the pledge together with the rest of the class will soon become about as popular as a turd in a picnic basket.
Enidris Siurano Rodríguez, a 15 year-old Puerto Rican sophomore at Damascus High School in Montgomery County in Maryland, was actually chastised and punished by her school for refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
This young lady has protested U.S. policy on Puerto Rico since she was in seventh grade by silently sitting during the daily Pledge of Allegiance. "I do not agree with the way the United States treats Puerto Rico... I think Puerto Rico has an undemocratic situation, I dislike the idea that a government so far [from the island] tells us what we can and cannot do,” she says.
That is her fundamental constitutional right or free speech under the First Amendment.
Last month she was asked to stand for he pledge by a teacher and complied under duress before being called to the principal’s office to discuss the matter. School administrators dismissed her protest and, belittled her ethnic background.
The next day she was told again to stand for the Pledge, but she refused – and was confronted by a different teacher who took issue with her protest, telling her that her actions were an insult to the military and military families.
The United States of America got along just fine without a pledge of allegiance to the flag from its inception in the 1776 Declaration of Independence right up until the mid twentieth century, at least 166 years. Those years mark the halcyon period in America when its inhabitants enjoyed far more freedom and liberty than we enjoy today.
The American government didn’t feel the need to require a coerced loyalty oath from its citizens then. But in 1892, Francis Bellamy, a socialist Baptist minister, came up with a grand idea for a pledge of allegiance which was later published in a popular children’s magazine.
The idea was to instill American nationalism in kids.
His pledge has been changed four times since then. In the year 1942, while WWII raged, the pledge was adopted by the U.S. Congress, and since then has become as ubiquitous in American public schools and other government settings as Hitler’s Nazi Youth forced pledge of allegiance during the Third Reich.
In 1954, during the height of the cold war with “godless” communist Russia, Congress and President Eisenhower took the unconstitutional step of changing the pledge of allegiance to add the words “under God” by federal law in blatant violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause.
The pledge of allegiance – a statist government loyalty oath -- has been forced down the throats of American school children in one form or another now for the last 70 years.
The United States government is not content that children, forced to attend public school within a compulsory education system, be free to make up their own minds and conscience about how to feel about their country. It wants to make that decision for them before they even begin to understand the nature of a pledge or the meaning of the word allegiance.
The pledge of allegiance flies in the face of liberty, freedom of conscience and the First Amendment. It is an odious government inspired ritual of which little kids are forced to recite mindlessly every school day long before they’ve acquired any working knowledge of American history or any reason why they should owe any allegiance to a government which looks upon them as virtual slaves.
If it is not a sham, a hoax, the very antitheses of liberty, and all of the valuable benefits of America that our founding fathers envisioned for us, then why does the present day government see fit to require its recitation every day, day after day during all of the formative years of every child’s life?
It’s a classic text book case of ritualistic brainwashing -- forced allegiance.
