It’s the Drugs, Stupid!

pillsBy Charles Gant and Greg Lewis

 

Psychotropic drugs have been used for the purpose of suppressing fear and enabling murderous rage for a long time. In Dispatches, his extraordinary book about the war in Vietnam, Michael Herr passes this along about the use of drugs by American soldiers:

Going out at night the medics gave you pills. . . . I knew one 4th Division Lurp [Long-Range Reconnaissance Patrol] who took his pills by the fistful, downs from the left pocket of his tiger suit and ups from the right, one to cut the trail, the other to send him down it. He told me that they cooled things out just right for him, that he could see that old jungle at night like he was looking at it through a starlight scope.  Read more:

Schools offer free summer meals, but few kids eat them

 

 Joanna Lin/California Watch Guadalupe Chavez, who will be in second grade this fall, eats a free summer lunch with friends at Cambridge Elementary School in Concord. 

At lunchtime at Cambridge Elementary School, you’d never know that the last day of school was more than a month ago. For one month this summer, Monday through Friday, more than 300 kids packed the Concord school’s cafeteria for free lunches.

Most of the kids gobbling up cheese pizza, chicken nuggets and carrots are participating in summer learning programs at the campus. But, as indicated by a big red banner hanging on the school’s fence, anyone 18 years old and younger was invited to the free meals.  More…

RV makes dental care fun and free

Transportation is a big barrier to better health care in rural areas, says James Genobaga, DDS, Yuba County’s self-styled “dentist on a van.” Genobaga works on the Happy Tooth Mobile, which puts dental care on wheels to reach underserved populations.

The Mobile, an RV outfitted with all of the typical equipment of a dentist’s office, travels to five public schools in Yuba County, stopping at each site for four to six weeks. Parents give the van permission to treat their children, and kids are seen during the school day.  More…

CA Democrats: SB 1476 Allows Judge to Allow Numerous, Not Two, Parents for Each Child

California Democrats are liberal—you can have as many parents as allowed in a building.  The idea of family is foreign to Democrats; they believe that people are slaves to the State.  Some Democrats want abortion of NEWBORN babies.

Then you have San Fran Senator Mark Leno, who has introduced a bill to allow any number of people to be parents of a single child.

“This bill would provide that where there are more than two people who have established claims or presumptions of parentage under existing California law, the court may recognize more than two parents if doing so would serve the best interests of the child. This bill would provide that in any case in which a child has more than two legal parents, the court must allocate custody and visitation among the parents based on the best interest of the child, including the stability of the child.”

To Leno and his San Fran Democrats, just the “presumption” of being a parent makes you one.
Maybe he was brought up in a commune.  Wonder why he dislikes children so much?  More…

The iniquity of homosexual child porn (video)

Bradlee Dean is an ordained preacher, heavy metal drummer, talk-show host of the Sons of Liberty Radio, and the founder/executive director of the ministry You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International in Minneapolis, Minn. He also is the producer of the 5-DVD documentary “My War.” Bradlee is currently involved with a lawsuit against MSNBC and Rachel Maddow and could use all the prayers and financial support possible. Tax-deductible donations to help restore this generation back to America’s biblical foundation can be made online.

First there was Harry Hay, a radical homosexual activist and long-time member of the Communist Party USA who was touted as the icon for NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association), whose motto was “sex before 8 before it’s too late” when marching in gay pride parades.

Then it was Harvey Milk, the first open homosexual to be elected to public office in California, whose lover was a 16-year-old boy, Jack McKinley, who was looking for a father figure in his life and who eventually committed suicide. It was said of Harvey in the book “The Mayor of Castro Street” that his objective was to lay for vulnerable “young waifs with substance abuse problems.”

Now, another homosexual-rights icon, Larry Brinken, openly manifested his perversion. He was arrested in California last Friday, June 22, for possession of horrific child pornography, a felony offense. Brinken served a 22-year tenure at the Human Rights Commission, and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors even declared the week of Feb. 1, 2010, “Larry Brinken Week.” A search warrant issued by the San Francisco Police Department found that Brinken possessed pornographic images, some of which show children as young as 1-3 years old being sodomized and performing oral sex on adult men.  More…

Bill to expedite firing teachers is rejected

An Assembly panel votes down the measure to give school boards final authority to dismiss teachers accused of ‘serious and egregious’ conduct involving sex abuse, drugs or violence toward children.

John Deasy is superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District.John Deasy, superintendent of the L.A. Unified School District, called the decision not to pass the teacher-dismissal bill “shameful.” Teachers unions, on the other hand, had said the bill would have violated due process rights. (Al Seib / Los Angeles Times / February 7, 2012)
 

Los Angeles schools chief John Deasy blasted state lawmakers Thursday for not passing a bill to speed up the teacher-dismissal process, which he and others pushed following the sex-abuse scandal at Miramonte Elementary School.

The bill fell one vote short of clearing an Assembly education committee when six of the seven Democratic members either opposed it or abstained. Committee Chairwoman Julia Brownley (D-Oak Park) supported the bill, as did four Republican colleagues.  More…

Proposed mandate on immunization triggers new fight over old issue

Prompted by recent outbreaks of pertussis and other communicable diseases, a new effort is taking shape in Sacramento to restrict the number of unimmunized students while reigniting the ongoing debate of parental rights versus government oversight.

Legislation authored by Sacramento Assemblyman Richard Pan, also a pediatrician, would require that parents opting out of immunizing their children provide a signed statement from a licensed health care provider saying they have discussed the pros and cons of vaccinations before their child is admitted to school.  More…

Beware: Sick Story of SEX in San Diego Gov’t Schools With Permission of Teacher.

How bad have government schools become?  This is a story for  adults, not children.  It is a sick explanation of why government schools have too much money and unions protect the worst of the worse in the classroom.

“Nine seventh-graders at a San Diego Unified School District middle school were suspended last month for watching porn on their cell phones and masturbating openly in class. Some students claim the teacher did nothing to stop them.  More…

California Bill Would Ban or Restrict Homosexual Conversion Therapy

Written by 

If California State Senator Ted Lieu (D) has his way, parents whose children struggle with unwanted same-sex attraction will not be able to seek help for their children through reparative therapy — treatment that has been found effective in helping individuals overcome homosexual tendencies. According to the Washington Times, Lieu has introduced Senate Bill 1172, which would prohibit children under 18 from undergoing sexual-orientation change efforts (SOCE), and would even require adults seeking such treatment to sign a statement acknowledging that they have been told SOCE is “unlikely to be effective,” might be harmful, and is not recommended by mental health professionals.

But opponents of the legislation, which has already been approved by one California State Senate committee, argue that it denies parents the right to determine what is best for their children, and restricts the options of those who want help for same-sex attraction.  More…

‘Social justice’ education hurts students

 

Editor’s note: This first appeared on UnionWatch.org.

May 7, 2012/By Larry Sand

Last month, the drone-like National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel gave a talk at the annual gathering of the Nebraska State Education Association. The California Teachers Association is an affiliate of the NEA.

Van Roekel unleashed the same tired old class warfare hogwash that teacher union leaders have been yammering about for years. The latest version of this old whine stresses closing corporate tax loopholes. As I wrote earlier, the NEA claims the U.S. can recoup $1.5 trillion in taxes if those greedy corporate types would just pay their “fair share.” Van Roekel conveniently omits the fact that NEA took in $400 million in 2010-2011, mostly in dues forcibly taken from its members, and didn’t pay one red cent in taxes.  More…

Textbooks site advantages of plastic shopping bags

State rewrites textbook chapter influenced by plastics industry

 alejandrophotography/istockphoto.com

Under pressure from politicians and environmental groups, California’s environmental agency has rewritten a chapter in a statewide K-12 curriculum on plastic bags that was influenced by the chemical and plastics industry.

The new chapter, which was posted today for review, no longer includes a section titled, “The Advantages of Plastic Shopping Bags,” and it incorporates more recent and relevant recycling statistics.

The public can weigh in during the next 30 days on the revised chapter [PDF] by visiting the website for the state Environmental Protection Agency’s “education and the environment initiative.”  More…

Special Treatment Needed for “Children of Color” in CA

 Affirmative action attacks GATE school program

May 4, 2012/By Katy Grimes

SACRAMENTO–If you thought that affirmative action was dead in California, think again. In fact, California Democrats behave as if it was never outlawed, and continue to pass laws mandating racial preferences.

The Assembly passed a bill Thursday which would require school districts to dumb down the successful Gifted And Talented Education program in public schools, in order to allow “children of color” into the program.

Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield, D-Los Angeles, the author of this bill, said Thursday that “children of color” are not fairly represented in GATE programs across the state.  More…

Why do we as a civilized people allow criminals, extortionists, to get anywhere near our children?

Call the United Nations! “Union Leader Says Education Reforms Are an Attack Against ‘Human Rights’

by Stephen Frank on 04/27/2012 · 

 

Extortionists believe parents and the public are incompetent and lazy.  Maybe they are right. We have allowed unions to degrade our schools, radicals create bigoted misleading curriculum and students are told government will set standards, not parents or People of Faith.

Appearing on a local news show, NSEA President Lynn Warne said the Silver State’s new education reforms – which focus largely on teacher tenure – “really struck at the heart of what are educators’ rights, workers’ rights, human rights really.”

Was Warne just being hysterical, or should education reformers be brought up on charges before the United Nations’ Human Rights Council?”

Lynne Warned needs therapy—to believe that wanting qualified teachers is an attack on human rights is like suggesting Idi Amin was only depopulating his nation to protect us from Global Warming.  Yet thanks to coercion, the NSEA forces teachers into paying bribes, just to be able to teach.

Why do we as a civilized people allow criminals, extortionists, to get anywhere near our children?  What are we telling our kids, that when a bully demands your money, do not argue or complain?  Will any teacher be willing to tell the truth—they pay bribes to work and will not do that any more?  More…

New California Taxes Pay for Pensions, Not Schools

Most Californians would be surprised to learn that 100 percent of education’s share of the tax increase proposed by Governor Jerry Brown will go to pensions instead of classrooms. But that would be no surprise to longtime observers of the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, which administers teacher pensions.

Here’s why: After retirement, teachers are unconditionally guaranteed lifetime pensions by their school districts. Everything works out fine if Calstrs, as the retirement system is known, earns the investment returns it forecasts and from which upfront contributions are derived.  Read more
